Was referred and used this company during our home buying process. While the inspector was very pleasant and was willing to talk through some items that may require a closer look, they were completely uninformed when it came to some major areas of the home and breezed through others. This was evident shortly after we bought our house and found out that a large section of the roof needed to be completely ripped out and replaced, despite the inspector walking the area and saying that it was fairly new and in great shape. It was neither. In fact, the roof was riddled with small tears and poorly patched areas that even an inexperienced person could see (our fault for not following him up onto the roof). The under layer was completely soaked and ruined, and there were weak spots where wood/metal support was clearly compromised. In fact, some areas were spray painted to give the illusion of being newer, when in fact they were not (also very obvious). Not to mention the faded water spots on the ceiling inside the house that we were told were "older and from before the roof was redone." Again, our fault for taking their word for it. Overall the service was shoddy and very disappointing, and unfortunately cost us dearly.

overpriced and very poor work.

I hired this company for a commercial 10+units. Report received was a very short general description of the house. We expected a detailed report for the $ we paid not general info we could see without having to hire an inspector. We had to ask for amendment of report. Although some changes were made the report is still deficient and according to the attorney it's the most unprofessional report he had seen so far. Our $ went to a waste.Will not recommend for large multifamily. Although very responsive, the report indicated poor quality & great lack of experience ...

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.
