I was unaware of how much goes into the inspection process. Ron is a no nonsense guy and will give it to you straight with no games. He does his best to explain and educate during the walk through process and the report at the end of it all is thorough. I will be using him again if my current offer doesn't end up closing.

Ron is absolutely the best when it comes to homes inspections! Ron was early to complete the inspection, extremely thorough and had a great turn around time for his report. I couldn’t imagine using anyone else. If you want someone to look at the property as if they were in your shoes, Ron is your guy! Thank you so much Ron for you professionalism and expertise!

I have used Ron's company to inspect two houses I was going to purchase. I was 1st impressed the company owner answered the phone on the second ring and was interested in MY needs. The first house he inspected was a disaster avoided, because of Ron's detailed report. He came early to start with the roof and exterior inspections. I appreciate never waiting for someone to show up. He was friendly, communicative and responsive to all my questions. He is not one of those people who dismiss 'older women '(as if we had no brains) . His work is methodical, thorough and he actually listened to my concerns, encouraged questions and is eager to educate. The inspection report was emailed the next morning. Hire A BETTER LOOK, and you will NOT regret it.

I hired Ron to inspect a home I was buying and I appreciate the level of service he delivered. He was punctual and thorough, and took his time with the inspection. Then he sat with me on the spot to go through the pictures and the report with me and explain or answer any questions I had. His report was well organized, clearly explained, and had pictures of everything he pointed out was an issue. I decided to cancel the deal based on the information in the report. Thank you, Ron, for saving me all that money! When I find another house, I will be sure to hire this business again. Highly recommended!

We found Ron from A Better Look through our realtor and I can't thank her enough for the referral! Not only did he perform a THOROUGH examination of the house (inside and out), but he walked my wife and I (first-time home-buyers) through every step of the process, explaining what he was looking for, why it mattered, and how issues could be resolved. We learned about which issues were basic maintenance vs immediate concerns, how to stop certain things from BECOMING issues, and much more. Friendly, knowledgeable, and comes highly recommended from us! And while I hope we won't need any more home inspections any time soon, if we do we'd happily work with Ron again.

Every aspect about the level of service provided by A Better Look was exceptional: From the timely response, to the friendly demeanor, to the thorough inspection lasting well over 2 hours, to the detailed & professional report. As we walked through the house during the inspection, Ron would not only point out potential issues related to electrical, plumbing, structural, and possible code violations; he would also take the time to explain the functioning, operation, and maintenance of all of the mechanical systems in the house such as heating & cooling and the water heater. Ron's report was exceptionally detailed and included 75 color photos that were referenced in the narrative. The report included a summary section that we were easily able to use to copy/paste into our document to the seller's attorney in which we were requesting credit for various issues uncovered during the inspection (exposed wiring, inoperable toilet, etc). Ron even took the proactive step to call us to discuss the report, prioritize the issues, and assign an estimated cost to the various repairs & replacements. Ron also emphasized that he is amenable to answering any housing related questions, providing his expert advice, and recommending housing professionals now or any time in the future. I could go on, but I think I've made the point that we were extremely satisfied with the service provided by A Better Look. On the financial end of things, the monetary credit we were able to request from the seller as a result of Ron's report was almost 10 times the cost of his service. Buying a home is a very stressful undertaking. A Better Look allowed us to take a great deal of uncertainty out of the process.

Best home inspection company I have ever used. Ron, the owner, was very thorough in the inspection and took the time to point things out to me and answer any questions I had. He was very quick with getting the report back to us, too. He has a wonderful personality and is very easy to work with. Unfortunately, the home I had inspected fell through but I will definitely hire Ron for my next home purchase and I highly recommend him to anyone needing a home inspector.

Ron at A Better Look is top notch! From the start he is very responsive and takes the time to go over what is and isn't included in the inspection. At the inspection, Ron leaves no stone unturned and makes sure to explain the major repair items and things that may not be as urgent. Ron is very knowledgeable and professional. It's easy to tell he knows what he's doing. His reports are turned around very efficiently and they are detailed and easy to read and understand. He also provides a separate summary outlining all the recommended repairs. I used Ron for my own inspection and recommend him to any of my clients looking for an experienced home inspector!!
