Ron Burns is the best! We called Ron and Ellen after reading all of A-1’s glowing reviews, and we are so thankful that we did. Ellen is very personable and continued to be cheerful, even after we needed to reschedule the inspection three times. Ron brings a wealth of experience, knowledge and professionalism to the inspection, and most importantly, as buyers, we knew that his loyalty was to us, and not to the real estate agents. Buyers should be aware that there are minimum standards for home inspectors in the state of Florida. It was clear that these standards were exceeded. Problems like the presence of polybutylene pipes were found. Ron not only disclosed the extent of this problem and many others both during his inspection and in his 30+ page report, he estimated the repair costs for us at the time of the inspection. He spent hours crawling around the attic, walking on the roof, and examining every area of the house. He also verified the presence of hidden moisture with his infrared thermal imaging camera. Since he is a master carpenter and home inspector with decades of experience and a very impressive resume (his qualifications are in the “Standards and Practices” section on the webpage), his opinions and recommendations are invaluable. Over the years, we have bought and sold two other homes and A-1’s inspection and report is the most comprehensive and detailed we have experienced. We enthusiastically recommend A-1 Home Inspections without reservation. Thank you Ron and Ellen!
