Review by in Brecksville, OH
Project: Inspect a Home
The Inspectors were very knowledgeable in their trade and did not rush through the process. They are very thorough and very honest when it comes to telling you what they find. We plan to use Contemporary Inc again for our next inspection and we would recommend them to others in need of inspection services.

Thorough, honest, organized, experienced,worth every penny and more. This is a vetted professional who had the equipment needed to insure a thorough inspection saving any potential buyer hundreds and thousands of dollars in knowing about details not evident to the naked eye.

Project: Inspect a Home
Phil is extremely thorough and has excellent attention to detail. We used him twice. He found some things at the first house he inspected for us that caused us to back out. He's as timely getting his reports done as you require, so let him know if you're in a hurry. His reports could be better organized. He doesn't like to climb around roofs or in crawl spaces. Overall, I highly recommend him.

Project: Inspect a Home
My experience has been that different inspectors tend to heavily concentrate on specific aspects of the inspection. This inspector was no different. This inspector did go beyond the minimum code requirements for structural and efficiency items. For others aspects of the home like major appliances, he did not seem as concerned. This inspector informs you of what's recommended which many times is a higher standard than the code. There are code minimums, then there are recommended standards.
Response by Contemporary, Inc.: As anyone can see, I don't respond to these opinion pieces, but this one simply needed a response.. Over three hours spent by two people on a small condominium covers about everything. MAJOR ( Furnace, hot water tank ) appliances were thoroughly checked, cycled and approximate life expectancy's given. Sorry we saw no need to run the dishwasher through a full cycle. The cloths washer was turned on but not cycled because it was not hooked up to the water and had no water hose there to hook up. The dryer motor was checked with a meter for proper conductivity and resistance ( and I know of NO other inspection service that goes even that far or would even know how to ) but when the client asked if it was checked I simply said " yes " you can turn it on. Which the client did. We supplied information which will save this client thousands of dollars over the next ten years, bet instead of " Thanks " we get 3 stars. Fortunately - I believe in the almighty, and this person, like all of us , will get as he gave.

Inspected exterior and interior of all areas affected by roof project. All questions answered and explanations given. He explained what type of materials, the quality of material, and the approx. cost of the project. His fee was worth every penny and more. I highly recommend this company. They are the "go to" people for any type of home inspection service.

He was very thorough. Spent three hours on the home looking at everything and documenting any issues he saw. I got the full report within 48 hours of the inspection. He definitely knows his stuff.

Very knowledgable about all facets of home inspection. After the inspection report was pretty well done. Response to followup email could have been better.

Will go above and beyond what is required of him. Was very detailed and left no stone unturned. His experience is worth every dollar spent. He originally told me he the inspection would take 2-3 hours- he ended up being there for 4 hours making sure he did his job to the best of his ability. and did not charge extra. A must for getting a thorough home inspection

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.
