Testimonials – Square One Home Inspections
Tommie LaRue, Court Coordinator
I had the pleasure of having Jeff Linam with Square One Home Inspections conduct my home inspection in July, 2014 and I could not have been more pleased with his services. He was timely, very flexible in scheduling his inspection time in order that I could attend without losing time on my job and extremely thorough. He gave me an oral report as well as a very detailed written report which made it very simple for me to negotiate needed repairs prior to my purchase as well as those repairs that I did myself and those that required professionals to complete after I moved into my home. His fees were fair & reasonable too.
In my situation, I had an electrical issue that was a potential danger, that Jeff discovered. He was completely knowledgeable about and not only did he explain it to me in laymen terms, he even provided me with a website that explained the issue and the remedy. Because of his knowledge and thoroughness, it simplified the process especially considering that I had to convey this issue to my realtor, who in turn had to convey to the sellers’ realtor and then to the seller. Without a doubt, had he not provided this information, it would have made things very complicated because most people are not aware of this potential danger. He even explained that this repair should be done by a licensed electrician.
Furthermore, the sellers’ electrician contacted me because even he was unfamiliar with this issue and Jeff was kind enough to speak with the electrician and explain exactly what needed to be done. I believe that Jeff went over and above to assist me. As a single woman, I totally appreciate working with professionals like Jeff, that I can completely trust to meticulously perform services especially considering that a home for most of us, is our single largest purchase and investment.
Without a doubt, I would recommend Jeff to do your home inspection too. You will not be disappointed!
This is just a note to thank you and SQUARE 1 INSPECTIONS for your invaluable aid in inspecting my new home, and explaining all the items covered in your home inspection report. I would have been bewildered but for the guidance/explanation you gave me for the function or dysfunction of items covered in your home inspection report. It gave me a great deal of peace of mind to have someone knowledgeable and thorough willing to patiently explain things. You went above and beyond by answering my questions while I was soliciting repair issues/quotes and that was so very much appreciated.
Every item pointed out in your home inspection report as a significant defect was substantiated and proven by independent third-party repair contractors (in some cases by multiple service companies in the given field). Your thorough and meticulous inspection and explanation of each item in your report was of paramount value in assisting me to negotiate a reduced purchase price and thus saving me from thousands in repair/replacement expenses later. It was so refreshing to have someone willing to spend a little extra time helping one understand issues and necessary repairs and not just wanting to grab a check and run. (I’ve bought a number of homes in my lifetime and you gave the best home inspection service I have ever had.)
Thank YOU so very much!
Thank you again,
