Steve does an exceptional job both during the inspection and throughout the administrative process of setting up the appointment and delivering the report. His inspection was the most comprehensive I have witnessed to date, and he uses modern equipment to complete the job thoroughly and efficiently. He is transparent about his certifications and is extremely knowledgeable within the scope of general home inspections. He knows the local area and was able to provide references for other trustworthy professionals. I would highly recommend Steve to anyone in need of a residential inspection.
It was such a pleasure working with Steve. His home inspection for my new townhome was very thorough. As a first time homeowner, I didn't know much about the ins and outs of owning a new home, but Steve talked me through everything so that I understood what to keep my eye out for in the future or things to improve sooner rather than later. I highly recommend Steve for any home inspection needs you may have. You won't be disappointed. Thanks again Steve!
Total Home Inspection Services was fantastic! Steve knows what he's doing and when he arrived to do the inspection, he spent a solid three hours inspecting the house, taking pictures, performing environmental tests and when he was finished, he took the time to explain everything, good and bad. Fortunately, there were only a few minor issues. He even coordinated a sewer scope for us, in the same inspection window, so we didn't have to worry about the headache to do it ourselves. 100% recommend T.H.I.S. Very competitive pricing as well!
Steven Stom of Total Home Inspection Services LLC recently came to a home I am about to purchase to perform a Home Inspection. I found him to be very thorough in his inspection and the final report with items that needed work very clearly identified such that I could present directly to the seller. Steven did not mind one bit my following him around and asking questions, the answers to which I found to be very informative. If you are looking to have your home inspected then I can highly recommend Steven of Total Home Inspection Services.
Steve is just awesome. He did home inspections of an old cabin and a triplex that I was buying. He was very detailed and took a lot of time to go through the properties with me to show me what he'd found. His report is easy to use, for inspection objections and to have the items addressed. Unlike so many inspectors, he is willing to step outside the box. E.g., he has referred me to an excellent insurance guy (who has saved me thousands) and a contractor that I'm planning to use. Steve welcomes questions - even after the inspection. He's a good man. I highly recommend him.
Steve outright saved our home sale. After having a radon mitigation system installed, the rinky-dink self-test we were given to mail off by the contractor never reached the lab. With three days between us and the objection deadline, we frantically searched for inspectors with modern instant-read equipment, found a picture of Steve's kit on Facebook of all places, and reached out to him via the online booking form *begging* for a first-thing-next-morning appointment.It was after hours, but he called within *minutes* to tell us that while he couldn't accommodate our last-minute, crazy timeline himself (for GREAT reasons, mind you!), he knew someone with the same equipment who could and he set EVERYTHING up for us.He was extremely kind, professional, and went out of his way to help us even when he literally *couldn't himself.* We got confirmation that the radon system was working and got the initial report the moment his friend (...competition?) picked up the device.I suppose this is really a review of *two* companies, but I'll say again: Steve saved our home sale with his immediate response and business connections. I'd recommend Total Home Inspection Services with everything I have in me.
I searched for an inspector with a proven record of competence along with supporting credentials. Steve had these and displayed a level of professionalism not noticed when I spoke with other inspection firms. Steve operates as a pro and conducts his work personally - rather than to hire staff to do the hands-on. And, Steve is thorough - finding items I would never have noticed. He provided advice regarding potential maintenance issues and acknowledged positive elements of the home we were buying. Steve is a credit to his profession.
I'm so glad to have found Steve! Our sellers only gave us 3 days to inspect and offer objections. Steve was super responsive and got us on his schedule right away. He was on time for our inspection and super thorough, taking the time to explain his methods, what he was flagging and why, and if something was beyond the scope of our inspection he still did his best to address it and explain how we could follow up with the appropriate contractor. The worst case scenario is a home inspector who just comes in to do a visual sweep in an hour, and that is absolutely not what we got! I feel super confident about my follow up with the sellers to have a few major safety issues remedied. We learned a ton about the house and feel more excited than ever to complete our purchase.Additionally he was very nice, affordable but not cheap, and took covid precautions inside the house. I was very comfortable working with him and would hire him again for my next inspection, whether for my next purchase or a maintenance inspection in a year or two.
We used Total Home Inspection for a home purchase inspection and Radon Testing. Steven from Total Home Inspection was highly professional and was willing to stay long past the allotted appointment time to explain anything we asked. Detailed reports provided were very high quality and easily reference-able in contract negotiations. Steven went above and beyond my expectations. 10/10 would recommend.
