I was very nervous about buying an older house (house inspected was built in 1854) but after having the inspection I felt much better about the purchase. Our inspector Carlos took the time to explain exactly what he was doing, what he was looking for and why and how I could check on the same things and maintenance for such. He was obviously well versed and experienced. He even showed me other houses while standing at my potential property and showed me things wrong with their foundation etc.. sort of as comparison. It was not only educational but I left feeling like an expert was taking care of me. I was glad that he was on my side. We looked at everything together in that house. Carlos showed me how the house was supported and what to look for. Told me how remodeling on the 3rd level would affect the foundation and what I could do to further support it. It was far more detailed than that but I'm sure you get the idea. My wife was just happy to hear that it passed since she wasn't there, but I leave knowing that I have a strong foundation and a sound house that will last me for many years to come. I even know how to care properly for it now and that was well worth the inspection cost. I'm glad I made the choice to go with Precision and I'll do it again when I'm lucky enough to afford another purchase!
