Project: Inspect a Home
Inspector missed too many problem areas. Had to hire another inspector .
Response by Cole's Inspections: As a result of our inspection of your property, we pointed out areas that needed additional exploration by specific specialists (termite inspection, foundation inspection, roof inspection etc), areas that are beyond the scope of a generalist inspection. We hope that these specialists were able to help you in making an educated decision as to whether or not to purchase the property we inspected. Best Wishes in your new home!

Project: Inspect a Home
We are buying my parent's house and were really surprised by the appraisal amount since the house was never upgraded. This will really help us to get the repairs done. Mr. Cole explained everything to us as we went and the written report was done and available to us the next day.

Project: Inspect a Home
Not detailed enough. Talked too much about what he would do and how not bad things were. Things that didn't seem bad to him could have been bad for us.
Response by Cole's Inspections: We performed a thorough inspection for (consumer name withheld per their request) and conducted a comprehensive, detailed, walk through of the property when the inspection was done. Structurally, the property was in solid condition and that was communicated to (consumer name withheld per their request)during the walk through and in the written report. It is not within the scope of our inspection practice to make recommendations on decorative improvements to the property (which is what (consumer name withheld per their request)was looking for). We are sure you are going to enjoy your new home!

Review by a homeowner in Rancho Cucamonga, CA
Project: Inspect a Home
His service and attitude was the worse of all inspectors I've ever had owning and selling 2 homes in the past. He didn't have the same technique as other inspectors I've hired that presented the report with pictures and went over with me and I was free to ask questions without showing impatience. Richard Cole didn't expect the house thoroughly missing areas that had serious safety issues from the garage to the inside of the house, that was discovered by the second inspector I've hired. Prior to me hiring the second inspector, I called Richard Cole informed him the areas that he missed to give him a chance to come back, reinspect and resurrect his report. He immediately went defensive and very angry accusing me of picking on him when my intention was to resolved the matter with him. He escalated the argument by calling me names, bashing and he threatened me that his family will forgive me but he won't and he stated that my house be cursed! He texted me threats and very angry. I've asked for my check but he texted he wouldn't spend an ounce of effort to return my check. The raging text messages he sent me were evidence of his dangerous behavior and I will not trust this website again in hiring trades men from it. I kept his text messages as evidence of how easily mad and dangerous he can be. And he even insulted me that I can't speak English and have used foul language, cussing and cursing just because he refused to admit he made a mistake during inspection and failed to provide correction to resurrect the mishaps.
Response by Cole's Inspections: We chose not to complete the inspection after meeting Ms.(consumer name withheld per their request) and feeling uncomfortable with her emotional frame of mind. We strive to provide 100% customer satisfaction and will continue to do so in the future.

Seal of Approval

What is the screening process that Service Professionals go through in order to become members of the HomeAdvisor network?

  1. Verify Trade License
    HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.
  2. Verify Insurance
    As a part of our screening process, we encourage professionals to carry general liability insurance. We require coverage for hundreds of services.
  3. Verification of State Business Filings
    For business types that require a Secretary of State filing, we confirm that the business is in good standing in the state in which it is located.
  4. Criminal Records Search
    HomeAdvisor uses 3rd party data sources to conduct a criminal search for any relevant criminal activity associated with the owner/principal of the business.
  5. Sex Offender Search
    We confirm that the owner/principal is not listed on the official state Sex Offender web site in the state in which the owner/principal of the company is located.
  6. Bankruptcy Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the history of the principal/owner of the business for bankruptcy filings by or against them.
  7. Legal Search for Civil Judgments
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for state level civil legal judgments entered against them.
  8. Liens Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for liens placed against them.
  9. Identity Verification (SSN)
    HomeAdvisor verifies the social security number(s) of the owner/principal for identity check purposes. This check applies primarily to smaller business entities.
  10. Identity Verification (Reverse Phone Lookup)
    We conduct a reverse business phone lookup to identify records matching the phone number information provided by the business.

NOTE: Member service professional information confirmed as described above may change or expire over time; while HomeAdvisor attempts to maintain accurate and up-to-date information, and confirms changes when notified, we cannot guarantee that profile and screening information is accurate. Therefore, we recommend that before working with a service professional you verify that information presented is still current and/or acceptable to you.
