Description Of Work:

I hired Mr. Harmon to do a home inspection for a duplex, and found his services
really are as good as the comments on AL indicate.


Member Comments:

I was VERY pleased with Mr. Harmon's service, and strongly recommend him.  
I don't trust real estate agent's recommendations for home inspectors, and
always hire my own.  Of the 6 or 7 inspections I've been personally involved
with, this was the most thorough and professional.   He showed up on time,
and took his time, doing a VERY thorough inspection.  He did things in a
sensible order in order to really try to see if there were problems (such as
turning the water on and letting it run when he first arrived, so that he could
come back later in the inspection and look for leaks).   He wasn't in a hurry to
rush through, and spent a lot of time on a complex older property with a lot of
potential problems.  He used the infrared scope in the inside of the property,
and correctly predicted a water damage problem on the outside of the property
without having yet seen the outside part of the property -- which really
impressed me.  Another good thing is that he told me about all of the small
problems, but correctly focused his attention on the big things, rather than
wasting time on silly stuff, like some inspectors will do.  Report was thorough
and timely, and the price was about $100 less than the other inspectors I was
thinking about using.  It was a pleasure working with him -- VERY professional.

Description Of Work:

We wanted to know what kind of repairs had to be performed on an inherited
property.  We were sure there were substantial problems in critical areas, and
decided that a good home inspection was a more reliable tool than contractor
estimates.  We were concerned about everything - roof, plumbing, electrical,
foundation. Harmon's references on Angies List made it an easy choice, and
he was everything everyone raved about. Prompt, professional, very open,
explaining what he was looking for and what he found every step of the way.  
When he finished, the report was thorough and we had far fewer major
problems than we had feared.  We will use him again, and wholeheartedly
recommend his services.
I hope I am right on the price- to be honest, I don't remember the cost clearly,
except that I felt it was money wisely spent!

Home inspection in Placerville requested by home buyer


Member Comments:

Robert Harmon is very professional and very personable. He returned my call
the same day to schedule the home inspection and also accommodated
scheduling the inspection based on my work schedule.
Robert showed up promptly for the appointment and set to work very
methodically and efficiently, first starting with turning on any appliances that
take a while to run, e.g. filling the jacuzzi tub so that the jets could be run,
starting the dishwasher so it could complete a whole cycle, etc. It became
very obvious that Robert is familiar with many types and brands of
appliances, heating, water and electrical systems, home foundations and
building structures. He worked unobtrusively and quietly in the background
without needing to prompt the seller with too many questions.
At the end of the inspection, Robert was very thorough and consistent in
reporting his findings as we walked through each room, covering basics first
like electrical, window seals, doors, etc before discussing details that are
unique to the room. His walk-through and attention to details about the
exterior of the property (garage, roof/gutters, foundation, driveway,
overhanging trees) was also impressive.
I received Robert's written reports within 24 hours of the inspection, both
reports were available for download from his website through the password
protected account that Robert assigned to me. The reports were consistent
with all the details that Robert shared during the walk-through. One report
was a 34 page narrative which included pictures that were either for reference
(e.g. water or gas shutoff, hard to see areas like attic and foundation) or
pictures that reinforced areas of concern to watch or repair. These areas of
concern were also described and colored in red to standout from the rest of
the report. The second report is Robert's succinct summary of the inspection,
recapping the areas of concern with recommendations on the action that is
needed. Both reports are very professional and well organized.
Overall I'm very impressed with Robert, his work ethic, attention to detail and
professionalism. I highly recommend Robert and would call upon him again
in the future.
