A little more costly than the competition, but when you see how Andy operates, you realize why -- he spent 4.5 hours meticulously checking all aspects of the house (e.g. roof, attic, rafters in basement, insulation, etc). He doesn't just go through a checklist, he attacks the problem from a priority standpoint -- looking at the foundation, exterior, basement, electricals, lights, even checking the appliances and serial numbers. He brought another person with him too, which is why I feel the cost is worth it. He did flag to us early on that he may not be able to physically get on the roof due to the taller construction of the house. This was indeed the case on the day of the inspection - even with a 20 foot ladder it was tough. However he did offer to check it with a drone (extra cost), which we politely declined. Instead he thoroughly inspected the roof with binoculars and from different vantage points in the backyard, across the street, etc. which we appreciated. More than anything, Andy saved us a bundle and also gave us the confidence to walk away from a bad deal -- which led the sellers to eventually do what we had asked them to do (replace an appliance and fix bad ELFs). Overall a very satisfied customer!
