After calling several local home inspection companies, I scheduled an appointment with American Inspections; they were, without doubt, the most professional company I talked to. Despite the quick turnaround I was asking of them, they were able to squeeze my appointment in, and Andy did a wonderfully thorough job.
After completing his inspection, Andy walked us around the house and backyard to point out everything he looked at, and the things he noted in his report. As first-time home buyers, it gave us peace of mind to see how thorough he was, to ask him questions and hear his detailed explanations.
The completed report, including a radon test, was emailed to us within 24 hours, with captioned photos and descriptive explanations. This made it very easy to discern what we would ask our house sellers to fix before we took possession. It also made it clear to the sellers what we were asking for even though they didn’t get to talk with Andy directly.
