Many times a house looks great and people wonder "do I even need a home inspection?"
That is an interesting question. If everything seems to work and there are no apparent issues, then why get a home inspection? Well, it comes down to 2 things: knowledge, and peace of mind.
A home inspection does one (or both) of those two things. First, if there are issues that you, contractors, or handy family members don't notice, you will now have knowledge. Does that happen though? I will tell you from the experience we have seen on thousands of inspections - %100 yes, all the time, almost every day.
If anything though, if you don't find out anything new from the home inspection that you didn't already know, then you at least have peace of mind.
Here is a thank you note that we received from a home inspection client up past Wilton NY who had this same dilemma:
"Thank you for the home inspection. It was an eye opener. At first I did not think I needed one but once we walked through the house I was VERY glad you came an gave me the bare bones of the house so I could see all the what parts needs to be kept up on what parts need attention now and things not to worry about. thank you ."
We performed a home inspection for a great client in Queensbury NY - and here is what they had to say!
"Ian was absolutely fantastic! We used his services twice when looking for a new home in the area and can't recommend him enough! Very professional, enthusiastic about what he's doing, and overall fun to work with.
A client recently left us a very nice review on Angie's List. We love the fact that our clients are so happy with our work!
Home Inspector Review - Delmar NY
"Ian was very knowledgeable and conscientious in providing me with all the information as we went through the inspection. He was happy to thoroughly answer all my questions. He provided a detailed report - ~40 pages with lots of photos. It was a great relief to have the information and I would recommend him without reservation. "
