Questions & Answers
Q: What advice would you give to a customer looking to hire a company like yours?
A: I always recommend attending the inspection. I have clients asking me why they need to be present. I feel that it is very important for the client to see first hand not only any the issues that I may find but to learn more about the home they are buying.

Q: What is the most common type of project or service your company provides?
A: Real estate purchase inspections including radon testing.

Q: In what ways is your company environmentally friendly?
A: I try to be environmentally friendly by limiting the amount of paper that I generate. Most inspection reports run at least 30 pages. I send all reports electronically to avoid the numerous copies and the inconvenience for the client having to wait for it to arrive in the mail.

Q: What would you like your customers to know about your company?
A: My company is not a franchise or multi partner business. When you schedule an inspection you will always have the owner, conducting your inspection.

Q: What is your company best known for?
A: I am best known for the care and quality with every inspection that I perform and the costumer service that goes on after the inspection.

Q: What questions do customers most frequently ask you? What is your answer?
A: The question I hear the most is "should I buy this house". Unfortunately I can not answer that question. Purchasing a home is a very big decision and it is a decision that has to be made by the clients. It would be unethical for me to tell a client if the should or should not purchase the home. My goal is to give the client enough information that they can be be comfortable in the decision they make.

Q: Describe a project or service that your company recently completed (include challenges, costs, and innovative solutions).
A: I just completed an inspection for a client and as I was inspected the fireplace and chimney i found an unexpected surprise. Impend the flue damper and was greeted by a family of raccoons. The babies were cute but mom was not so happy to see me. I very quickly closed the flue and a wildlife expert will have to assist in the removal.

Q: Is your company a member of any associations?
A: I am a Member of the International Association of Certified Home Inspectors.

Q: Tell us a little about your company.
A: Best Choice Inspections is an Owner/Inspector operated company priding itself in quality and customer service.

Q: What forms of payment do you accept? (cash, check, credit cards, etc.)
A: Best Choice Inspections accepts Cash, Checks and Most Major Credit Cards.

Deteriorated Chimney Liner

This deterioration that was found on the chimney was not visible from the ground. The only entry in my report would have been that a rain cap was missing if I had not inspected this home from the roof. This is the reason that I like to walk the roof whenever possible. This could have been an expensive surprise for the buyer.
About Us Image

This is not the preferred method of repair for a leaking skylight. I found this on a recent inspection. Skylights have a warranty of up to 20 years usually. Most rooting materials have at least a 25 year life expectancy. Skylights need to be replaced when the roof is replaced and probably sooner than the roof.
About Us Image
I am a 1st time home buyer and Chris, with Best Choice Inspections was extremely helpful and reassuring during the inspection. He was very thorough and didn't miss a beat. His warm personality made this process an enjoyable one. The flexibility in scheduling the inspection was appreciated as well. If you are looking for an honest and detailed inspection give Chris a call, you won't be disappointed.
Chris McDowell was very good to work with. We felt he did a thorough inspection and gave us good advice on the key issues to investigate further and address before closing. He was through in explaining what his findings were and offered advice on how they should be addressed.
We used Best Choice Inspection for our recent home purchase. We arrived at the inspection and Chris was already at the home and just finishing looking at the outside. He walked us through his findings outside then continued the inspection inside. He looked through the entire home and explained what he found as he went. He followed up with a report the next morning that had photos of any of the issues that he found. He made us more confident that we had made a good decision, We are going to recommend Best Choice to our friends.
As first time home buyers, we appreciated the honesty and professionalism that came with Chris’s service. From my first call to receiving the report he was thorough, responsive and a pleasure to deal with. Chris went on the roof to inspect it, we were very impressed. He took his time, explaining everything as he went through the house. He prepared a great report with no surprises because he had already showed us the problems that he found and explained exactly what they were. Highly recommend Best Choice Inspections.
This was the third home I have purchased in my lifetime. I had inspections done on the first two that at the time i thought were well done. Chris from Best Choice Inspections not only performed a thorough inspection but also took the time to explain how the different parts of the house worked. He was able to put the issues he found with our new home in the proper perspective. He was also very helpful after we closed on our home. We had questions that he was able to answer over the phone and he gave us good advice. My wife and I highly recommend Chris and Best Choice Inspections.
