Chad did a great job on our new home inspection. Very comprehensive, and the video was great to have to refer to later. We are buying an older home so Chad pointed out a lot of areas that could be improved but nothing that turned us off from buying. He was very professional and stuck to the facts. He always recommended that we get a licensed contractor to further evaluate and repair any issues we felt strongly about.
“NEVER underestimate the IMPORTANCE of a QUALITY home inspector.”
While upgrading our home, we discovered some water damage. Wanting to eliminate future problems for us and/or a new buyer, I contacted Foundation-2-Rooftop, Inc. requesting a complete home inspection and radon monitor.
We learned so much during that inspection, and Greg also discovered two issues we were totally unaware of. The cost of the inspection was the best investment we ever made in that home. Plus, having a follow-up inspection video (proving corrective work completed) to pass to a new owner--now that’s truly PRICELESS.
Greg also did a great job inspecting a home we wanted to buy. He felt it was a solid house despite a few major issues. Unfortunately we were unable to reach agreement with the seller.
We can’t thank Greg enough for his honesty, ethics, competence and dedication to quality work. We trust Greg implicitly! Foundation-2-Rooftop is the only home inspection company we will even consider calling in future, and we highly recommend Greg to everyone.
Omaha realtors should be proud to have such a quality ethical company to work with, and we hope more realtors realize the value of using Greg in their transactions.
Greg inspected a home for me in March of 2014. He came out on short notice and video taped the whole inspection which was very beneficial. Though the inspection he found the furnace to be working(turned on) but wasn't safe to use(seller told us it was fine) making it inoperable. The seller decided to replace the furnace at no cost to us. Very happy we had him inspect. If another inspector didn't fully check the furnace we would of needed to purchase one at our cost. Saved us about $3,500 from not having to pay for a furnace ourselves.
Greg and his partner did a terrific job on our home inspection. Although the home was is great shape, they were able to give us all kinds of really helpful and useful information. We had only ever purchased brand new homes before and had never purchased an existing home so there was a lot about "older" homes we didn't know and Greg was super patient and educational. They do not leave any stones unturned - very, very thorough. Even though we were there at the end of the inspection and they did a complete walkthrough with us, the video they provide was very interesting and very helpful. I also appreciate Greg's integrity and his unwillingness to cooperate with the "good old boy" network of shady realtors and home inspectors. I definitely recommend Foundation2Rooftop!
Greg helped us identify major issues in a house we were interested in and avoided major loss for us. He is extremely knowledgeable and skillful. He does extensive inspection and goes through the house thoroughly. We are very happy with his service and will hire him again without hesitation. Considering the great service he provided, the price is reasonable or a bargain if you will save much more by identifying any major issues on a house you will buy.
You should never be influenced by your realtor when it comes to home inspection. You should always hire a third party inspector not related to your realtor to avoid conflict of interest and make sure the inspector really works for you. From this perspective, I highly recommend Greg as well for his integrity and ethics.
We've had F2R perform two home inspections now. The first was on an "as-is" fixer upper, so we wanted to make sure we went with someone not in our agent's pocket. The YouTube snippets of inspections and testimonials we found all over the web solidified our decision. Also, having a DVD of the inspection seemed like a great idea for future reference if we decided to go through with the purchase.
Chad and Greg were ready for us when we arrived for our walk-through. The house had a lot of problems, too many for us, so we had to walk. But we learned A TON on that inspection. They do a great job of explaining the good and the bad of the home without "dumbing down" the issues or going into "doctor speak", how to prioritize repairs, etc. Even though we decided not buy that house, we are keeping the DVD, because we learned so much from it.
Of course, we called them for our second house, and the inspection went much better for us! There are a few things in the DVD we'll have to revisit when the weather gets warmer. We plan to stay in this house for a good couple of decades, but if we do need to move again within the Omaha area, we'll be calling these guys!
Chad was very very thorough with the inspection of the property we asked him to look at. When it was time to explain what he had found, he was clear and concise and I was able to easily understand what he was talking about. The DVD that was provided was SO detailed that my husband and I knew where every problem was and could clearly see what we did or did not need to have repaired. I appreciated all of the time that was taken to make sure we knew what we were all getting into.
My husband and I can't say enough on behalf of Greg with Foundation-2-Rooftop. We chose him based on highly positive reviews from Angie's List and we were not disappointed. Not only did Greg fit us into his schedule last minute to accommodate our upcoming closing date, but he was extremely friendly, thorough, and competent. He documented the entire inspection on video but also explained everything to me as he was working, in a way I could understand. Because of his thorough inspection, we were able to negotiate with our sellers to take care of several important issues that we hadn't been expecting. I'd highly recommend Greg to anyone purchasing a home in the Omaha area.
In a world that's getting harder and harder to find good, honest service these days, it was quite refreshing to deal with Greg. He was easy to reach by phone, went over options I may want to consider, flexible and prudent on scheduling, and I was very impressed at his knowledge and keen eye across the board on every facet of the process. Unfortunatley the home I selected and liked very much, turned out to be a nightmare in several areas inside and out. I definately got a very good education and will not consider anyone else on my next go around. Thanks Greg for doing an excellent job that far exceeded my expectations. The thumb drive you provide of the video taped inspection is invaluable! I go back and review it to sharpen my memory on what to look for before looking at each home now. You have my recommendation and I insist on it!
Extremely thorough inspection. Saved me $15000 by identifying serious problems in the property. I bought the property anyway, but his efforts let me know exactly what I was buying so I could negotiate price to allow for repairs. Just caution him NOT to mark on furnace innards on property you don't own; I can't imagine many property owners would be keen on that. The video he makes in incontrovertible documentation of problem areas. If I buy another property in Omaha he's my go-to guy.
