So used this WIN home inspection.When Mr.Barry Dryer came out.He seem like he was doing a good job.The inspection took over four hours and we followed him around the house.At the start we should up 10 min late he said he had already been on the roof and the roof look fine look new and he didn't find any problems with it.Three months later we had a big rain storm and found out that the roof over the guess bathroom is leaking,So we had a roof company come out.The roof guy told us that the roof was done wrong that who ever did the roof job didn't do it right and it was causing the leak and that the roof was in bad shape and we need a new one soon.The roof company found the leak and showed me the water damaged on my roof in a few mins.The leak is fix on that part of the house but not I need a new roof and the warranty company wont cover human error.If Barry had told us how bad the roof was we would have never bought the house.I would suggest not using Win Home Inspection it will cost you.
Mr. English inspected my house. He "inspected" the thirty foot high chimney cap from the ground and had the nerve to want it repaired withput actually seeing it. He disn't know that a loop in the drain line of a dishwasher serves as an air gap. He requested tuck pointing of hairline cracks in mortar even though tuck pointed is for missing mortar. He damaged the crawlspace entry and did not repair it. He alao did not replace the molding around the crawlspace entry. Opting instead to simply throw it into the crawlspace.
Bob English was amazing! He was very thorough and professional. He found roof issues that had been fixed temporarily but would have issues in the future. He identified various items on the subject structure that either required maintenance now or requiredperiodic maintenance in the normal course of ownership. Finally, his secretary was perhaps the nicest person I have ever had the pleasure of speaking to. Thanks Bob!
The inspectors from this company must be the "darlings" of the real estate agent that recommends them. The inspector that worked for me didn't do a proper checking of the items necessary, didn't bother to find the main water, roof, etc. But he made my realtor happy. I called after the inspection and was told that the inspector did everything he could.
