Iowa State Home Inspections is a waste of money. The report had lots of pictures, but no content. Under every major system there was only the recommendation to have a contractor investigate. So I paid $295 to be told to have a professional look at the house, I thought that was what the home inspector was for. Dave also told me during the inspection that the plumbing in the basement was not vented properly, and what that meant was that the trap could be siphoned out and we might smell sewer gas, but you just have to run some water in the sink and it is something you live with. Wrong! that is a health hazard and not something you willingly buy. No thanks to Dave, or my realtor, I did not buy the house and I lost money on both fronts, but better than buying a house with low quality work in the basement. I have a family to keep safe and healthy. Dave told me the house was great and there were no concerns. I did have a contractor in on one of the systems other than plumbing, and it wasn't safe either.
