Our experience with Fred Root as our house inspector exceeded all expectations and saved us several thousand dollars. His decades of experience with properties really shined through, he knew all the improvements and additions to the property which were clearly not done to code, he had measurements memorized and inspected all aspects of the home with the utmost care and concern for our investment. His expertise was undeniable. As an example, the seller had the furnace inspected; it was original to the home and about 25 years old. The specialized company that did the inspection found it in good working order. Fred Root inspected it, and advised us to bring in an independent inspector for a second opinion. Using his referrals, we did as he advised. The independent inspector did in fact find the furnace was faulty, and the seller replaced it as a result of the second inspection. Thanks to Fred Root we enjoyed the efficiency of a brand new furnace through our first winter in the home. On top of all this, Fred Root is a great guy and enjoyable to work with, he helped us on several occasions after we purchased the home. Working with Fred Root was one of the highlights in the overall process of purchasing our home. We wouldn’t want to buy another home without him!
