Our excellence keeps money in your pocket!
A highly professional home inspector will take you on a tour of the house structure and systems (mechanical, electrical and plumbing) and leave you feeling inspired. We want to hear you say..."Wow! I never knew that! Or " I can't believe how much I've learned!"
Following the in-depth hands on inspection, you will receive a written report with a detailed inventory covering the structural elements and major operating systems, including a summary of conditions requiring attention. Photographs too!
Major sections include:
* Structural components and basement
* Electrical, plumbing, domestic water heating, central heating and air conditioning
* Condition and general age of major systems
* Kitchen and major appliances
* General interior, including ceilings, walls, floors, windows, doors, and stairs
* Attic, ventilation, and insulation (if readily and safely accessible)
* General exterior, including roof, gutter, chimney, major drive and walkways, drainage and grading
Inspect The Best also provides radon testing and water
analyses using an EPA approved laboratory.
Home inspections are conducted under the auspices of the

Radon Information For Homeowners
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has great information on its website for anyone wishing to learn more about this important health concern - one that the homeowner, or prospective buyer can do much to resolve.
Some Connecticut Counties have elevated incidence of radon both in air and water and we recommend that you take the time to learn about this gas. Levels will vary both by location and by the particular nature of individual home construction.
Testing is relatively inexpensive and it will afford you the knowledge you need to make good decisions for you and your family.

Thank you so much for your assistance...you are thorough, consientious, and so considerate, both of the space and the people that occupy it. You seem to have a real knack with people, and show a keen interest in what you are about. Thanks again,
Your report got here a couple of days ago, and I'm very impressed...please remind me to show you the other inspection report from 2001, when I purchased the house. It's very heavy on the boilerplate, and quite slim on the details concerning my own particular home. Comparing it with yours, I don't know if I'd even call the other one a proper inspection report at all.
I have recommended you to my friends as you are a wonderful person and did an excellent and thorough job. Best wishes,
Thanks so much for the report. It looks very complete and informative. I'm impressed!
Murielle and I wanted to thank you again for the thorough inspection and written report. Best of luck in your business enterprise.
