I thought the inspection went very very well. Jim Bacon was very easy to talk with, honest
I ended up withdrawing my offer due to Pine Lawn Ranch. They do Not conduct themselves
in a professiona and timely manner. I would never rent space or live under their conditions.
I will continue to look for a property in Prescott, although I am in no hurry. I
will definitely call Jim again and use his services when the opportunity presents itself.
The inspector took the time to review all the systems in the house with us after he completed his inspection. I feel comfortable with the operations of the different systems because of his orientation.
Thank you Jim
Jim Bacon was very friendly, professional and knowledgeable. While he couldn't answer every detailed question I had about some of the issues we discovered, he had some great suggestions about how I could proceed. He pointed out key issues that I would need to address and his report was timely, detailed and easy to understand.
Spent a good 3+ hours performing a very thorough check of every aspect of our new home purchase. Upon my arrival, my realtor agent Oakley, and Jim my inspector, were already there, Jim finishing up his checks.
He went over all the things he found with me (nothing earth shattering or a deal breaker) and suggestions for the next steps. Only "major" concern was that the AC wasn't efficiently pumping out cold air, causing the unit to run more than it should. Said to have the builder's tech look at it; may only require 1 - 2 lbs. more refrigerant.
The extra money spent on having Jim come out is funds well spent for peace of mind. There is no way I myself could have completed such a thorough inspection and found what Jim found.
I highly recommend Jim and Pillar To Post.
Peace of mind is priceless!
Jim Bacon is Pillar To Post (PTP) in Prescott, AZ. He is personable and informative. The PTP system is methodical, and the binder containing the pre-formatted inspection is useful. But, if
you don't accompany Jim and ask questions, you'll miss the full advantage of a home inspection: where the water and gas shut-off valves are, how to shut down the furnace, how to relight the pilot on the water heater, etc. It's important to acknowledge what a home inspection is.........and what it isn't. It reveals problems visible to the naked eye. It cannot detect problems behind the walls, under the floorboards, in the ducting or in the plumbing or electrical conduit.
