Home Buying in Medford>Question Details

M. J., Home Buyer in Medford, NJ

Looking for a very detailed home inspector.?

Asked by M. J., Medford, NJ Tue Aug 23, 2011

I'm looking for an experienced and overly-thorough inspector who services Burlington County, NJ. I'm interested in structural, septic, well, radon, mold, asbestos and lead testing, so I'd like someone who is able to meet most of that criteria. I want to know every little detail about the home.

Help the community by answering this question:


I would strongly recommend against using Engineers for Home Inspection (http://engineersforhomeinspection.com/). The inspection on a house I was purchasing was performed by this company. This company failed to reveal evident structural deficiencies which have been discovered at our residence. They have been extremely difficult and unprofessional to deal with before and after the issue.

What can you say. 1. I have never performed a home inspection for someone named Dina nor been contacted by anyone in her party. 2. Some people are unhappy before you start the inspection and they will be unhappy with things no matter what how good of a job you do and will come on social media to try and harm you. 3. I have many happy customers who write me telling me of their appreciation well after the inspection.

My posting was NOT bogus. The name of the home owner of the house you inspected Harris, is not mine but that of my fiancé. However, I walked around with you as well that day. Besides missing completely the electrical code violation, you also did NOT mention anything about the roof shingles that I had a problem with. When the Home Owner's Insurance company came by to do the exterior survey they sent a letter saying how it needed to be fixed before they would cover/insure the home. You were fixated on other silly cosmetic issues instead of more important factors.

Again, your comment/reply just proves how difficult of a vendor you are and should not be in a business that deals directly with the general public, especially when people are dealing at a time that is quite emotional for most.

Spending the money on a home inspection I feel is a major waste of money anymore. Just bring in the professionals in each field to inspect...i.e. electricians, HVAC etc

These postings are bogus. I have not inspected for either of these people. I take it as a compliment when my competition can't compete on a level playing field.

Same bad experience for us in Mount Laurel. The owner of engineers for home inspection Harris Gross dismissed an obvious electrical code violation. Very bad attitude when questioned. I would recommend using professionals in the field, such as an HVAC contractor or an Electrician.
