"I am a first time homebuyer and a veteran in the United States army and I decided to get a home inspection because I was told that it can be a good investment if you find things wrong with your home. I went with someone named Ron Rodrigue out of Elm City Home Inspection in Oakland Maine and a long story short...he is wonderful!!! He basically helped me negotiate the price of my house from $47,000 to $38,200 with everything he found wrong in the house using an infrared camera (only 3 inspectors in the state of Maine own one). He is as thorough as they come and found things I feel that most inspectors woudn't have. He went into great detail on the best options there are as far as fixing everything including my roof, the asbestos in the basement, the evidence of a fire in the house and MANY other things that I do not have room to write about. The $400 I spent on him saved me roughly $9,000. I would highly recommend him over any other if you are looking into buying a new home."
"I just received an inspection report summary from the Buyer's Broker because we are selling our house. I was unsure of some of the items on the list so I called Ron Rodrigue from Elm-City Home Inspections. Mr. Rodrigue was very patient and went through each item on the list with me explaining it in detail. His professional expertise and experience helped me understand where I stood with the contract and if the items on the list was fair. I would not hesitate to call on Elm-City Home Inspection for my next home inspection! Very Helpful!"
I just had to send you this letter just to let you know how much you helped the both of us with buying our first home. With the weddng and every thing else going on I did not have time to say thank you. I just wanted let you know I could not have done it without you. You saved us over $7000.00 with the sale of our house. Now we can fix the things we wanted to. You were right to the point and I like that. The broker was surpised that I had so much information, that it blew him away. Again I can not say much you made our lives just allot better. Thanks again and have a nice Chistmas .
