Reliable, Trustworthy and Professional. Being a First-Time Homebuyer you seek a company that make you feel you are in good hands. I found that with Pillar to Post Home Inspection.
Thank you Kevin Akins for your excellent services with your promptness for schedule date, detail report w/pictures and suggestions, answering any & all my questions regarding an inspection.
Thank you for educating me in the process. Highly recommended! ~Vickie Britt
First and foremost the professionalism, knowledge, experience, and professionalism of Kevin Akins, my PtP Home Inspector.
By the time I had arrived at the property he was already walking the grounds to observe the foundation and outside of the home, as well getting up on the roof. Armed with his camera, Ipad, his 'utility' belt of tools, gadgets and meters, the image of a crime scene detective came to mind. That is how detailed my inspection was.
Once we moved to the inside, he set about quickly turning on ovens, running acs, testing electrical, all the while explaining not just what he was doing, but answering questions. He also would stop at issues and give a brief overview of what he found, so as to remind me what areas to pay extra attention to on the report.
Kevin is such a thorough inspector. This is my third home, and I cannot honestly remember either of the two inspectors I used prior, spending even a third of the time he did on my future home. Roof to slab and wall to wall, he truly became my second and third set of eyes, catching things I had completely missed or never even thought of looking for. Which is exactly what his job is and what we hire home inspectors for.
He was friendly as well, when he would swap equipment out or come back to the home base in the kitchen to make detailed notes, he was very personable and a great guy to get a wealth of information from.
Knowing he, and PtP, were all Veterans, I knew I would be in good hands and get someone who approached my home as if it were a "mission" or task that must be done to the "letter". And that is exactly what I got.
Now I am fully armed with a comprehensive detailed report, with tons of photographs and evidence to highlight each issue, so that I have a strong position to stand on when going back to the seller for repairs or negotiations. Without Kevin's experience and skill, I do not think I would have half as much.
It was such a genuine pleasure to meet and experience this process, and get to know PtP through Kevin. He made one of the stressful steps in this whole process of buying a home, a real pleasure-regardless of the findings that may have been not what I was hoping for. He called it exactly how the home was, not how my wife and I saw it with "buyer's blinders" on!!
To sum it up simply and to the point: PtP Inspections, Kevin Akins directly, just saved us from signing on the dotted line and inheriting thousands of dollars in repairs. Now it is in my sellers court what happens next.
The inspector Kevin was on time, he was very polite and respectful introducing himself, take off his shoes and exchange for a different kind. I noticed right away that he knows what he is doing, very professional very good skill of communication, he explains me everything he was doing and he finished the inspection on a good time, about 3 hours including the report. I can recommend your service definitely.
Kevin was extremely professional, we went to our inspection and he took the time to explain everything to us. He encouraged us to ask questions and to follow him around.
The report was very thorough. We sent it to another website to get quotes for the repairs needed and they complemented the inspection report.
We would definitely recommend him.
