Jim was very thorough, professional and efficient. He went over his report and then emailed it later so that I had a hard copy. He was a pleasure to work with.

Project: Inspect a Home
Do not use McDonough for home inspections. The only problems he found in the house we bought was a broken sidewalk and the fridge did not work. So we thought it was a great house! I bought it and moved in, found SOO many problems in the first months, and I am not an inspector. There are places in the sub floor that are rotting, weak spots in the bathroom and kitchen, so Jim obviously did not crawl in the crawl space. I did, and they are rotting. They dryer vent just went straight under the house, which is a huge mold and fire hazard. Several broken window panes. Water damage all inside the closet near the bathroom. Water pipes leaking. Broken clean outs that cost us $1,000 to replace. I think he just wandered around the house taking pictures and did not actually check for problems like we hired him to do. You will be glad you chose another inspector.

Jim was very responsive and professional. He found several issues with the home and was very thorough in his inspection. He called me the same day of the inspection to review the results of the report and answered all my questions. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for a quality home inspection at an affordable price.

Review by Kevin B. in Fairhope, AL
Project: Inspect a Home
He walked off the job of his own accord since he was in charge and not me the one paying my hard earned money. He was there 10 min. It is his business so I guess he can work for whomever he wants to, but when I pay it will be done my way or the highway and the highway was what he chose.

Mr. McDonough was very knowledgeable. I was not able to meet with him, but he was able to do the inspection anyway. He was very thorough. I like the fact that he took pictures and explained what he found and gave his recommendations. I would hire him again and recommend him to others.

Mr. Jim was extremely knowledgeable and thorough. I highly recommend him! The report he provided was easy to understand and very thorough. He welcomed me in joining him, which I did! He also was able to accomplish the inspection 2 days after contacting him. Can't beat his price either.

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.
