I recently hired Scott Home Inspection to inspect a house I was considering purchasing. The process was seamless; from scheduling to delivery of the inspection report. Their scheduling team was friendly and helpful; and Dave S. (the inspector) was enthusiastic, informative and focused. He answered all my questions and providing me with the details I needed to ensure I was making an informed decision to purchase.
We had Dave do our home inspection as part of buying a new home in Denver. The report we got back was super thorough and clearly documented, helping us understand all the details of the home we were buying. Could not be more pleased with the ease in setting up the appointment, the fast turn around time, and the insane attention to detail!
My husband and I contracted Scott Home Inspection 2 1/2 years ago and Dave showed up and did such a great job inspection our condo. Buying a home is very overwhelming and working with people like Dave makes the process a lot better. I was delighted when the opportunity arose to call them again and request Dave! Just finished another home inspection with him today and I have to say what an awesome job he does. Dave loves his job and takes the job very seriously- I feel like I received a great education on all the important things to consider in buying and maintaining a home. He’s happy to answer questions, makes great recommendations. I am so so grateful for his service and for the company- it shows that everyone who works there is happy to be there. Katie at the front desk and Brittany who also came to the inspection today are all wonderful! Thank your Scott Homes for providing such great services and having such lovely people to work with :)
Very happy with Scott Home Inspection. The inspection report was detailed and thoughtful with great pictures/commentary on issues and considerations. The thermal imaging of the hydronic floor heating system was particularly cool. Thanks Joe!
Scott Home Inspections always arrives early and does a thorough job for my clients. They also do their own sewer scopes and radon testing vs. contracting it out to a 3rd party! I would recommend Scott Home Inspections.
Excellent Company!! Extremely thorough inspection. You want these guys to inspect the house you are planning on purchasing. You will know exactly all the issues with the potential property. Great work Scott Home Inspection!
I am a Realtor. The professionals I refer my clients to speaks volumes about the quality of my own work. During a contract the inspection is among the most critical pieces to get right. Scott Home inspection has made that piece easy. They are on time, professional and insightful. Their reports read the best of any major inspector and online scheduling takes 5 minutes. Their inspectors do an exceptional job of processing information into simple terms that anyone can understand. They frame the issues they find in a way that does not leave homebuyers feeling hopeless and freaked out. Highly recommend. Have personally worked with Luke, Dave and Jeff. All great at their jobs and friendly.
Scott Home Inspection was exactly what I wanted when I was worried about mold. They were informative, interested in helping me, and on point. All elements of the process were handled professionally. I'd highly recommend them.
Jeff was very professional and courteous. We were very impressed his through inspection and explanation of issues. And a special thanks to your scheduling staff for rescheduling our inspection three times due to the snow storm.
I'm really happy with my Scott Home Inspection, and especially my Inspector. He took the time to explain things to me- what he was doing, why, the importance of it, and answered all my questions. They were great!
I used Scott Home Inspection and was very pleased at the overall experience. The report was well done, detailed and well organized. I have used several other Home Inspections before and in my opinion Scott compares favorably. I especially like their post inspection services such as recommendations of contractors for different repairs and maintenance. I will definitely consider Scott if I need inspection services again.
Dave was great, thorough, clear, and educational as he did our home inspection. His report was also highly detailed with pictures and easy-to-understand language. I would highly recommend Dave at Scott Home Inspection.
Brett was very thorough, knowledgeable, and careful during our inspection. He was patient through all our questions and concerns and explained everything to our understanding. I would highly recommend Scott Home Inspection and use them going forward if ever necessary!
Our home inspection was thorough and well explained. The experience demonstrated made us feel comfortable with the results and our inspector presented the findings in a way that was easily understood. Very satisfied with how things went.
Scott Home Inspection is a great company to work with. From the moment we called their scheduling department to the final report, everything was top quality. Their scheduler was extremely polite and competent. She was able to schedule us the very next day. Adam, our inspector, showed up on time, and was very knowledgeable and thorough with his inspection. He, too, was very polite and very respectful of the property. I would not hesitate to recommend Scott Home Inspection should you need a home inspector.
Dave did our inspection on Tuesday and he was phenomenal. His enthusiasm for his job and the company he works for is unmatched. He is very patient and kind. He explains things clearly and never made me feel small for asking questions that may seem obvious. Super nice dude and the report that we were provided was very thorough and easy to read. Thanks Dave & Scott Home Inspection!
Their website is fantastic. Being able to book online, select services, choose your inspector and have a quote instantly is great. They reached out shortly after by phone to go over everything and explain some stuff. Then they will handle everything from there. Dave was thorough and helped explain some things to us being first time homebuyers. He didn't mind talking at all and made everything very easy
Great experience from start to finish. The office was very friendly when I called to schedule and made the process very easy for me. The inspection was very thorough and the report very easy to read. I highly recommend Scott Home Inspection, LLC!!
My first inspection was very detailed, I was able to make a good decision based on the report. I decided not to buy the home due to some of the issues that arises. I am so glad I went with this company, because today I completed a second home inspection for a different property, and I was so amazed by the difference in the homes quality/condition. I made sure I went with Adam Jones, although I’m very sure everyone else on the team does an excellent job. Adam represents the company very well. He is a super friendly person, and I sometimes sink into conversation so much at times, I forget that we are getting an inspection done. He adores pets which is a plus! You can ask him any questions in regard to the property, and you will be amazed by all the information he can give you.
I appreciate being able to conduct business with real people who answer the phone and call you back. SHI was able to respond to my request quickly and showed up on time. They were thorough and the reports were well organized. I thanked both the people who recommended them.
This company is awesome. Better prices than the other big company I looked at. The inspector got to the house we're looking to buy the very next day. And the report was super thorough, detailed, and easy to read. I havent done this before but felt confident we got a great inspection
Our inspector Adam was great! His attention to even the finest details on the house was great, he was able to answer all of my questions during the inspection, and displayed a level of confidence and professionalism that helped put me at ease during this pivotal portion of the home buying process.
We used Scott Home Inspection for the inspection prior to purchasing our home. It was a new build and Jason, our inspector, did a great job of identifying a number of items which we were able to show the home builder and have addressed. We requested Jason to come back out for our 1 year warranty inspection. He found an issue with one of the appliances in the home, within the 1 year warranty period, which we were not aware of. No doubt this covered much of the cost of inspection itself. He also identified some other items which we will be able to have addressed by the home builder. I highly recommend Scott Home Inspection.
Our inspector was there early and was very informative. Our inspector ensured he answered all of our asked questions and concerns, and if he could not do so, he informed us of professionals that could answer our concerns. He was fast but did a through investigation. The report was very timely.
The service I received from Scott Home Inspection was fantastic. Every associate I spoke with was courteous, knowledgeable and proactive. I ordered a few different tests which made scheduling a little challenging, but they managed to get us the reports we needed in timely fashion. If I ever need another home inspection, I know where I'll be going.
I found Scott Home Inspection to be easy to work with as well as affordable compared to other companies. Chris came out and did my inspection. He was thorough as well as very kind when answering all of my questions. I would gladly to business with them again!
Scott Home Inspection was able to fit me in under a tight schedule. They were timely and courteous and were able to explain things to me that I wasn't completely clear on. Very professional and respectful.
George gave me a call on a Sunday, the same day that I reached out to ask about a concern my wife and I had with a house we were in the process of buying. We had not previously met, and George was not our inspector on the house, yet he took the time out of his day to call me back and to answer my questions. I can only assume that a person that is willing to do that would also show the same integrity and care to his paying customers - I would recommend George to anyone who is looking to work with someone they can trust.
My husband and I are very pleased with Scott Home Inspection. They were very flexiable with their schedule and were able to get us in NEXT day which worked best for both of us due to the time line we needed. Their customer service team was very understanding and did what they could to make us happy. Jeff did our inspection and was very thourough. He made sure to answer any questions that we had and went above and beyond with everything. He was amazing. I HIGHLY recommend this awesome company!
I can easily give Scott Home Inspection five stars. All the inspectors are well qualified and thorough. I always feel comfortable recommending them to my clients. I have gotten to know Joe, Dave and Todd quite well over the last few years and I feel like they go above and beyond to make sure my clients thoroughly understand the report. I never feel like they are trying to get out the door for their next inspection. Ann, George and the team in the office always respond quickly to a request. All around a top notch company!
I'm so glad we picked Scott Home Inspection. Joe was so professional and thorough. He made sure we understood every aspect of what was coming in the report, but in terms we could understand. He was thoughtful in his answers to my questions and so easy to work with. I feel we got the best possible company and my confidence in our new home purchase is 100% after working with Scott.
Luke did our home inspection and did a very thorough job. He was even available for some follow up questions after our inspection as we were debating whether to mitigate mold that was found during the inspection. We would absolutely use Scott home inspection and request Luke again should we be fortunate enough to go under contract again!
Our home inspector, Jason, was courteous, professional, efficient, prompt, and easily informative in his way he shared the details of the inspection. For instance, he would explain not only the technical aspects of a certain issue that arose, but he would use language that all of us could easily understand and interpret the problem. Not only was he extremely thorough with his inspection, but he had several recommendations as to what could be done to remedy each issue. He showed all of us the issues around the home that he found when we had further questions, and was patient and thorough in his explanations of his feedback. And, he was happy to answer questions for me about equipment in the basement that I had. Oh, and he had his own heavy duty booties he wore so he didn't track any dirt in the house. Great company and great work by Jason! Five stars and highly recommended!
Dave, our inspector, went beyond our expectations in our recent home inspection! He was courteous, thorough with his review, and thoughtful about sharing his experience as knowledge with us as first time home buyers. He taught us a things along the way and we felt confident knowing that we had a full picture of our home purchase decision. We were especially impressed with the user-friendly inspection report process that was both technical and digestable. Dave even followed up to ensure we understood the report. We confidently recommend Scott Home Inspection.
Very fast response and scheduling. Arrived early and prepared. Very thorough and detailed. Explained and answered questions plus discussed options. Extremely impressed, Adam Jones was the best inspector I've ever seen (and I have a lot of rentals, used many inspecton services)!
Totally happy with our experience with Scott Home Inspection. Fast, thorough, knowledgeable and pleasant from the scheduling call to onsite visit to detailed reports. George Scott was responsive and thorough by email. Totally impressed by Adam, our assigned inspector.
I used Scott Home Inspection for my most recent home purchase and found them to be prompt and easy to schedule with. Also, when the inspection was done, it was very thorough and every question was answered along the way. The final report was simple, organized and easy to follow. I highly recommend these professionals!
I give Scott Home Inspection my highest recommendation! I'd give them more stars if I could. Everyone I came in contact with went above and beyond to help us meet deadlines and complete the inspection. The team was friendly and accommodating to our needs (thank you Chelsea, Ann and George!). The inspectors took their time to explain everything they saw, but even to point out minor items or explain how to maintain the home. They were unbiased and did not try to influence our decision, but just informed us on the condition of the home (thank you Dave and Woodrow!). They even took the time to go out to the house multiple times to ensure a thorough inspection was completed at no extra cost to us. We will definitely be calling them for our next inspection! Thank you Scott Home Inspection!
Fantastic communication. Quick turnaround on inspection request, and a high willingness to deliver information with as much (or less) detail as I wanted. I had very high confidence in the report from Scott. High recommend.
So appreciated Scott Home Inspection! Luke was very patient and thorough in explaining not only the items he was flagging for review, but also general helpful things to know about appliances and future repair suggestions. Getting to watch the infrared results helped set my mind at ease about hidden leaks. And it might sound a little silly, but Katie in Customer Service for scheduling and billing also made me feel like a really valued customer and made the whole experience very 5-star. Highly recommend and thanks!
The customer service was very quick to answer and get us an inspection scheduled (within 24 hours). They have lots of add on inspection features (radon, sewer line camera, infrared technology) that were very helpful for us as well. I highly recommend using them for future homebuyers.
Scott Home Inspection was fantastic. They managed to squeeze us in quickly during the very busy Holiday season. We were extremely happy with the inspection we received from Scott. The inspection was thorough and informative. I would recommend Scott to anyone!
Extremely professional, from the moment they answered the phone to the inspection to the report and follow up. I can't imagine better service from any company. The services were fairly priced. Dave, our inspector, was incredibly knowledgeable and courteous. I would recommend them over and over.
We had a great experience with Scott Home Inspection! Dave was our inspector and he was very knowledgable, detailed and got into every nook and cranny of the home. His experience and knowledge really came through and he was happy to inform us along the way. We are so happy that we worked with Scott Inspection and that we had Dave.
We loved Dave and our Scott's Home Inspection. These guys know their stuff! Dave was great, even with me having to bring my 4 year old and two of my other kids who were sick for our inspection. The kids were happy and felt like little helpers thanks to Dave and made the experience that much better! He explained everything to me to where I understood, asked questions to make sure I had a grasp on everything he explained. Would highly recommend!
In the middle of buying my first place and had this team recommended by a friend. I couldn't be happier with the service! Super easy to schedule and pay online, prices are very reasonable, knowledgable and patient staff, and a very thorough and easy-to-understand summary at the end. I would highly recommend Scott's for a home or condo here in Colorado.
Dave Spielman was very thorough. During the walk-through he explained everything he'd be putting in his report in detail which really helped us understand what we should and should not be concerned about. Dave clearly loves his job and is very enthusiastic about doing it well.
The energy inspection was conducted in a purely professional manner. The inspector was right on time and explained the process and results clearly and concisely.I will use Scott Home Inspection again in the future.
We had Scott perform a one-year warranty inspection for our house and could not have been happier with their service. Jason was very thorough in his inspection and carefully explained all the items that he had found. He pointed out items that we can have our builder address. Very satisfied with the job performed.
Joe is incredibly knowledgeable, patient, thorough, and honest. He not only knows the current status of a system, but has a deep understanding of energy efficiency, can prioritize the impacts of different systems, and is all around very helpful. Thanks for not only inspecting my house, but also teaching me the whole picture of how a house works!
Preventative maintenance was our goal of a limited inspection. Good news is that we found lots of "opportunities" to make repairs and lots of reassurance about other areas. I have used Scott for a pre-purchase of a condo and will definitely use them again.
Todd took the time to go through everything with me and made sure I knew what needed attention and what could wait. His report was extremely thorough and had lots of pictures. Would definitely recommend..
In the last year, our team of inspectors has completed 1000+ home inspections in the Northern Colorado region and over 300 in Fort Collins alone. With a team of 15 inspectors and many of them being dedicated to the northern Colorado area, we assure you our experience is top notch.
Each blue dot on the map represents an inspection we did in 2018.
The northern half of Fort Collins contains some of the city’s most famous features. These areas include Colorado State University campus and Old Town. This region is the older portion of the city and it is also where the largest portion of student housing is located. The older homes in the city are typically located right off the east side of College, and north of Mulberry Street. The homes in the city range greatly in age, but generally speaking, homes around campus are typically 1920-1970s, with some newer builds and apartment buildings mixed in.
Because of the student population, there are many duplex homes, smaller apartment units, and homes that have been converted into mixed use. There are also some very large apartment complexes that are typically filled with students such as Rams Village and Rams Point. Unfortunately, student houses are not typically well maintained or clean. Therefore, we recommend pest inspections and mold testing when purchasing these units. However, Old Town contains many interesting lofts and older buildings for purchase if that is more your style.
South Fort Collins
The southern half of Fort Collins gets you away from the action of the University. Although many students still reside in this area, it is known to be slightly quieter with a mix of long term residents. Also, the homes are typically newer than their northern counterparts. Generally, the homes in this region are 1960s to 2000s. There is also an influx of new building occurring on the southeast side of the city. The east side of Harmony Road boasts the newer region of shopping, restaurants, and entertainment, along with the newer homes.
On the southwest side of town, you will find the classic 1960s – 1980s suburban neighborhoods. We recommend sewer scope inspections in these areas as many of the homes have clay sewer lines which are prone to damage and roots. There are also many larger apartment buildings in this area that have converted to individual owner use.
Loveland is a quiet northern Colorado town that has a wide range of homes. The lots are typically larger than a metro suburb, and the whole city is slightly newer than average. The majority of the suburban home building did not occur until the 1960s in Loveland, so many of the homes are newer. The town also has 2 public lakes that are popular boating and swimming destinations – Lake Loveland in the center, and Boyd Lake on the eastern edge. Both lakes have great lake home neighborhoods if you are looking for a property near water. However, if you are buying a lake front property, be sure to get a mold air sample test with your home inspection because of the low water table.
The city also has 3 big high schools, making it a great place to raise a family. There is also an old downtown district with great new restaurants and breweries popping up every day.
Once a small and slightly unknown Colorado town, Longmont has exploded in popularity in recent years. Along with that explosion came skyrocketing housing prices. Much of this growth can be attributed to the growth of Boulder, Colorado. Because Longmont is just a short drive down Highway 119 from Boulder, many former Boulder residents migrated to Longmont in search of lower housing costs. Since then, the landscape has changed dramatically with new builds all along the western edge of town. There is also a large development of high end homes on the southwest side of town where houses are selling for well over the 1 million dollar mark.
Aside from the rapid expansion, the rest of the town has a great feel as well. With homes ranging from the 1920s to brand new, you can find what you are looking for. The downtown main street area in the center of the city has great breweries and restaurants, while the south end of Hover Road has the majority of the shopping and food chains. The overwhelming majority of housing in Longmont is single-family residential, and the majority of those have basements. We always recommend radon testing homes with basements present.
Berthoud – Johnstown – Windsor
Around the bigger cities mentioned in these slides are the smaller more rural towns. These areas are growing rapidly within the state. Many new suburban neighborhoods are popping up around Berthoud and Johnstown. Berthoud is particularly a hot spot for building right now as a brand new PGA golf course is being constructed as a massive development project. Homes in this area will range from $300k to $1 million.
If you are looking for extra acreage, these smaller towns may have the answer. Many of the lots in the neighborhoods outside the town centers have bigger lots, and most of them are reasonably close to I25 and other cities. Many of the larger lots will have multiple buildings on site which will require additional fees for us to inspect. Outbuildings, barns, and external garages fall under this category. Also, our pest inspection might be a good add-on for older farmhouses and barns as wood destroying organisms will be more common.
