Whitefish Bay Home Inspection - Matthew H.

"Complete exterior and interior home inspection including full report with pictures. I chose Wall-to-Wall for a few reasons:

1. We had a very tight window to get a general home inspection and any follow-up contractor inspections completed before the commitment date and Al (owner and inspector) at Wall-to-Wall was able to come out within two days of my initial phone call, and

2. The company website showed an example inspection report that looked clean, well-formatted, and included pictures.

Al showed up a few minutes early and started in right away on the exterior inspection, while I shadowed and asked questions. He was efficient and used an app/program on his smartphone to record findings. The entire inspection for our 1500 sqft house with detached garage took around 2 hours and he was professional and friendly. The inspection report was submitted by email later that evening and I was able to work with my realtor the next day to draft an amendment to request repairs.

His service is exactly what is intended by a general home inspection, an overview of the house condition with notes and recommendations to contact specialists where any concerns are found. After moving in, we found a few minor issues that were not caught during the inspection (upstairs bathroom faucet leak, loose toilet mount), but the items of more concern were captured and we were able to get the seller to pay for a new chimney cap and cleaning, and new shower plumbing. After a month in our new house, we are very pleased with our service from Wall-to-Wall.

I thought that the pictures and the format of the inspection report set Wall-to-Wall apart from some of the others that I researched in the Milwaukee area.

Wall-to-Wall also offers radon testing and we paid an additional $100 for this."
