Description Of Work:
Aadvanced home inspection completed a pre-purchase inspection of a home in McKinney.
We met Robert Taylor at the home we wanted to purchase while he was completing the walk through. Robert stopped and took the time to show us notable findings and pointed out minor items. Robert was great. There were lots of items he found which a less experienced or less detail oriented person would have missed. The home we are buying has a detached garage. Due to a problem with the keys and garage door opener, Robert was unable to enter the garage during the initial inspection. With his experience, he was able to tell that there was a problem with the foundation by looking at the walls and the boards from the outside. Due to the problem of inspecting the garage interior, he scheduled a return visit with the selling Realtor to complete the inspection.
The report Robert emailed us was professional and thorough. It was sent to us in a very timely fashion. The items noted were color coded (red, yellow, green) for importance of need to repair. The report helped us find points that needed to be fixed before moving ahead with the purchase of the house. His recommendation of a structural engineering firm could not have been better as it saved us over 6500.00 in repairs which the seller then completed before signing final paperwork. I HIGHLY recommend Robert and Aadvanced Inspections
I am not the least expensive Inspector I have 36 years of building construction and home inspection experience. I am not attempting to compete on price with the constant inflow of new home inspector start ups. My inspections often take longer, are more informative and useful, I take extra time to review and explain the findings with our clients. My reports are well documented. The price on this particular custom home backs up to a park/creek with retaining wall was $510.00 for 2,700 SF, built in 1993, with pool & spa and a detached garage
