I just wanted to say thanks to you for the terrific job. I worked for a general contractor for six years and thought I could pick apart a house. Your inspector did an incredible job inspecting, he looked for and found things I would have missed. He was very knowledgeable of building codes and construction requirements and was extremely helpful at noting the general condition, attributes, and/or deficiencies of the house. I felt that the thoroughness of his inspection provided us with an accurate picture of the condition of the house, which greatly aided us in our decision to purchase
Sometimes we (ok, me) forget to say THANKS! If it wasn't for you, I would have been responsible for around $30K of repairs. The I-beam was replaced, and several other items (all on YOUR list), and the builder paid for it. I will recommend you each and every day if a Realtor asks me if I know a structural engineer for a reference. You are on my web site as a "local partner", and hope I can refer more business to you. Again, thanks A LOT!
I recently purchased a foreclosure house, sight unseen, so knew I was taking a chance with a 60 year old house. Upon possession I discovered foundation issues that were troubling. I spent a few quick minutes doing a google search of house inspection companies what had a background in engineering and came across Coyle Home Inspection Engineers. I was able to connect with them immediately and schedule an appointment. Working with Mike was just what I needed. He listened intently to my concerns while he performed a thorough structural inspection. He very concisely educated me on various types of foundation designs and associated possible issues with each. We were able to identify my specific type of foundation design and the causes of my concerns. Primarily all are due to poor drainage around the house but much to my relief my issues are not indicative of severe structural problems. As a result of the inspection I received a complete report of the findings and suggestions on mitigation approaches to reduce future and ongoing problems as well as techniques to address the symptoms I am experiencing. I would recommend using Coyle Home Inspection engineers for home inspection needs as my experience with them was quite satisfying.
Our compliments to you! The home inspector who recommended you for the structural inspection said that if Coyle was involved it would be done right.
Thank you so very much for doing an inspection on my home! Farmers Insurance gave me additional money to match the offer from the contractor. They may not have done that without your report!
