Ted has been our home inspector for two properties and I cannot overstate how much value you get from one of Ted's home inspections! While most other inspectors seem to spend only a couple hours inspecting a house (2-4 hours, maybe 5 in rare cases), Ted took the full day (9.5 hours) carefully inspecting every single part of the last house we looked at... and which we ended up buying with a much greater piece of mind knowing Ted inspected it.
Additionally Ted spends another day writing a custom report with explanations and pictures for all issues or potential issues he finds, ranked by the importance and including repair cost estimates. His report is not a quick checklist or automatically-generated report, but a fully custom written report that is like a maintenance manual for the home.
Another thing I truly appreciated is that Ted encourages you to follow him during the inspection, explains the issues he is finding, the cause of those issues and gives you advice on how to prevent future potential problems. I learned a lot from him during the inspections and I'm sure I saved a lot of money because of that.
We highly recommend Ted for anybody looking for a home inspector!

Hi Adriana and Marius,
It was such a pleasure working with you, it certainly helps when the home buyers are as enthusiastic and attentive as yourself. It sounds like you've settled in. Please don't hesitate to contact me when you start dealing with some of our discoveries. My job was to discover possible problems that you’ll have to deal with. Just knowing about deficiencies and possible timelines you can stay ahead of most any calamities. This puts you in the drivers seat instead of knowing there are possible surprises out there in your future.
There's a huge gap between our discovery and getting the job done that I can't cover in my report. This is why phones and emails were invented, to extend a working contact with me and even as a sounding board. I'm not saying I'm an expert but I can usually point you to the resources that may assist your future projects. Sometimes we don't know the names of things or who to call, I'm always happy to help.
Your advocate, Ted
