Home Inspection Family

Ralph,
I know that it has been a while, but I wanted to reach out to you and let you know that we are settling on our new home tomorrow afternoon. You completed our home inspection way back on that beautifully sunny Friday in October. Since then the sellers completed all of the suggested repairs you recommended. They regraded the yard, fixed all the down spouting, addressed the termite damage in the basement (had it certified by a structural engineer) and installed a radon remediation system. We had asked for a credit for a new boiler in the basement as well, but instead they purchased and installed one for us.

Very thorough inspection caught and informed us (potential buyers) of things we may not have noticed or understood ourselves. Much appreciated, and highly recommended! – Seth Gard, February 2019

All in all I wanted you to hear an update and we are excited to finally make it to settlement. Thanks again and have a very merry Christmas.

My experience with Mr D’Angelo was an extremely positive one. He provided a thorough and detailed home inspection. He is very experienced and the general depth of his knowledge proved invaluable. As the home I was looking to buy was over 100 years old, the inspection required astute attention to detail. As we were going through the house he not only reviewed the structural and functional requirements of the inspection but offered insightful suggestions on how to manage and preserve the integrity of the home in the future. I would highly recommend him to any buyer.

Ralph did a very thorough job and was able to stay a bit longer than the scheduled time. He explained all of his findings to us and typed up a detailed report. We would definitely recommend him for home inspections.

Ralph D'Angelo was great! Did not miss a beat, was at the house before I got there, introduced himself, had us follow him through each room, garage and outside. Would highly recommend him. Thanks Ralph!

Ralph is a gem! As first time home buyers, my husband and I had a lot of questions, which Ralph answered in a way that we could understand. All communications were prompt and the inspection itself was very very thorough and informative. Thank you so much for providing EXCELLENT SERVICE!!
 
Ralph was very professional and his experience shined through during our home inspection. Having several years of contracting experience myself, I am very detail oriented and notice the little things. Ralph didn't miss anything and was extremely informative on the issues present, along with how they should be rectified. The report was returned, with a summary of items needing repaired, by day's end. Overall, I couldn't have asked for a better person/company to inspect our future home!

Thank you for doing the inspection for us today. Your expertise helps us a lot. We have never given much thought on exterior issues until you brought the stucco potential problems up yesterday, and we really appreciate your professional opinion. We as well as our friends may need your help again in the future.

My wife and I are very pleased with the thoroughness of the inspection by Ralph D’Angelo. The price for several hours of work was right. Having worked with many inspectors in my professional life, I have the experience to distinguish between inspectors. I give Ralph D’Angelo four stars!
Gabe M. West Chester, PA

I am overdue in sharing my review, but one year after inspection I would still recommend Ralph 100%. He was courteous, knowledgeable, and flexible with scheduling after our seller failed to complete necessary tasks prior to inspection. Everything Ralph indicated in his report helped us to not only negotiate our purchase cost, but also helped us prepare for what would be next to fix in our house. Ralph inspected our 4 bedroom 2.5 bath house, but is fully capable of reporting on a single room or a larger property. Words can't express how beneficial the service he provided was. The money we spent on the inspection saved us over 5k in the long run. Ralph is the best!

I'm so glad I found Ralph and American Building Inspectors. The first house we looked at we just knew was the one, but Ralph found some issues that, in the long run, could cause us some major headaches in the future. Once we found a second home, we didn't hesitate to call him and he didn't disappoint. He told us what we needed to make sure we maintained, things that definitely needed fixed, and other things we just needed to keep an eye on. He was thorough and a pleasure to work with. I would recommend Ralph and ABI to anyone looking to buy a home.

I love having Ralph D'Angelo on a home inspection. He is a stickler for detail - there is only one way , the right way when it come to home maintenance. Great sense of humor to boot.

Ralph was very professional and courteous during our home inspection. He not only pointed out relevant issues during the inspection, but also some quick homeowner tips like where the master water valve is and what to consider if we plan to do renovations.

Ralph always does a good job. He is able to explain what he sees in a way that the client understands. Well qualified to inspect not only residential properties but also commercial properties. His report is thorough and provides the necessary information. I highly recommend American Building Inspectors for property inspections.

This was a great experience. Ralph was well organized and on time. He is very personable and was easy to talk to. He methodically and meticulously went through the house explaining things to us. When he was finished he quickly emailed us a detailed review of the inspection with pictures.

My experience with Ralph D'Angelo goes back more than 20 years. Ralph inspected the home my wife and I were about to buy, and did an amazingly thorough job. In fact, he was able to spot a major structural defect which would have cost us $10,000 to remedy (and which we had never noticed), and as a result, we were able to get the sellers to pick up the cost of doing this. I have since recommended him to many clients in my law practice, and all of them have been very satisfied. All building inspectors are not created equal -- this one's the best!
