Rick was AMAZING. That first reviewer there, Shaun M., was our realtor and recommended Rick for our home inspection. Rick spent four hours inspecting our townhouse, which was under 1800 square feet (more than an hour per floor and at least 45 minutes outside in the dead of winter). As an example of how ridiculously thorough he was, he noted that we might want to put some sort of grippy material on the underside of the railing going down the outdoor stairs to the patio. The railing is new and totally stable, mind you, but he just wanted to be sure it was easy enough to grip when we're walking down the stairs with our baby. Obviously, with that kind of eye, he found absolutely everything that we needed to address with the sellers or keep in mind for future home care.
He brings his laptop, camera, a bunch of other techy-looking gadgets, and a printer to the house. Yes, a printer. Before he left, he printed part of the inspection report and gave us a big binder with a book about general home care and a bunch of information on our house specifically. By that night, he had e-mailed us the full inspection report with a bunch of photos and detailed explanations of everything he went over with us in person.
I recommended him to a friend who is under contract and he was able to accommodate her short timeline without issue. Her realtor was actually shocked at how thorough the inspection was and how much time he spent at the house.
I highly, highly recommend Rick and will use him for any home inspection needs I have in the future.
