Before buying our house, we had it inspected by 1 True North Home Inspections. He didn't examine the bathtub or its spigot and water flow for leaks or any other problems. After the very first use of that tub, we discovered that the water was rapidly leaking through the floor and onto the kitchen below. We discovered that the tub had a serious leak. After that, we had repair people come to take a look, and they said that apparently work had been done around the drain of the bathtub in an apparent clumsy effort to fix this problem. They also said they noticed signs of previous leakage in the kitchen ceiling under the tub. All this should have been noticed in the inspection. We hired a contractor to remove and replace the tub. When the old tub was removed, we saw it had terrible rust and a sizable hole, which was the source of the leaking. It cost us about $3500 to fix all that -- and we were quoted far higher by others. 1 True North's incomplete and inefficient inspection was deficient and could have saved us time, trouble and money if he had noticed this situation.

Response from Company:

This is not true. As I explained to you at the time of your initial call, I ALWAYS run the tub and shower as part of every bathroom and every inspection. It was not leaking, and as I showed in the pictures I took of the ceiling under the bathtub on the day of the inspection there was NO sign of a leak. How could they have noticed 'previous' leaks when the area was already wet from the leak that happened AFTER the inspection?!? I am sorry that this happened but as I have explained to you before the pipes in this house are 30 years old and they can fail, it happens.

Tim was lightning quick in responding to questions, thorough and professional. He was at the inspection site 30 minutes early and had started inspecting the roof. His quote was also very competitive. We had the inspection report a couple of hours after the inspection. Could not have asked for more. Definitely a 5 on 5.

Tim went above and beyond to ensure we were happy. The items Tim found would have caused problems in coming years. Was not sure home inspection was needed on new construction, but very happy we did it for both pre drywall and final walkthrough. Well worth the money spent

Our inspector Tim Diviney is an extremely efficient and professional expert. He did the most thorough inspection and wrote a detailed report that gave us the most accurate info about the condition of our house.

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.
