    We are in the process our purchasing a new home. Our next step is to have a Home Inspector look at our potential home. Our realtor gave us one, but we’d feel better going with someone who isn’t affiliated with our realtor.

    We need a House Inspector who is very thorough and not just wiz through the house. Who will actually go to the roof and inspect up there to.

    I’ve used just about every referral from this site that I’ve requested with positive results. So many thanks in advance for all of your helpful referrals.

    Here is the man Mae and I used (provided by realtor Patrick West):

    Wes Brendsel
    Assured Home Inspection, Inc.
    464 Beck Road SE
    Lancaster, OH 43130
    [email protected]

    Wes spent several hours going through the house with us and he explained a good many things about the house.

    Someone on here, a regular, is an appraiser…jpizzow maybe? I’m sure they have a great referral too.

    Call Dan at Cornerstone.

    He really does a good job and has done inspections for myself and about 6 of my friends all in Victorian Village. He know his way around old homes.

    We used Randy Reinhart on recommendation from our realtor, and really liked him a lot. He was reasonably priced and very thorough.

    Wing Inspection Group was very thorough when I used them. The guy is a home inspection instructor.

    Hey there —

    I used a guy named Duane Anderson – Anderson Home Inspections – and he was really great. I bought a house built in 1958/59, and he spent literally three hours going thru the place with a fine toothed comb. He went up on the roof, even though it was a little rainy, to inspect the chimney and flashing – and caught some things on the brand new roof that the roofers had to come back out and redo. He also caught some things with the chimney, and mild plumbing stuff that I was all able to have fixed as part of closing.

    I attended the inspection, and he also went thru the house, showing me all the pertinent shut offs, filters, and other things that I could easily manage myself – I really, really appreciated it.

    Here is his website as well – a little hokie, but useful – http://www.inspectmynewhome.com/content.aspx

    Thanks again for all the great referrals!

    We ended up using:
    COBI Central Ohio Building Inspection, LLC.
    Joe Sinvany
    614-236-2624
    http://www.buildinginspectionohio.com

    He was nice and very professional. Joe actually had us come along while he did the house inspection and explained to us what he found, recommended, and some common home owners knowledge. Plus he answered all of our questions. He took pictures of everything he put in his report.
    Because of the snow he couldn’t get a look at the roof or the yard over all. We were very happy about his inspection and the report was very thorough. The home owners agreed to do just about everything he recommended be fixed or updated.
    I would definitely recommend him for first time home buyers.
    Thanks again CU!

    +1 for Dan from Cornerstone. We used him for our home inspection last week after reading this thread. He was very thorough and professional.

    Can you arrange for inspection of just a few specific things, instead of the whole house? My sister and I are interested in getting answers about certain cracks and creaks around this 1964 house, whether we sell it or keep it in the family.

    Alexs, Are you talking about cracks and creaks on your roof or inside of your house? I would suggest Atlas Roof and Exteriors if you need anything done with your roof. I was referred to them by a friend. Great People! Very professional and knowledgeable! Best of luck with your 1964 house!
