"As a first time home buyer I really didn't know what to expect from an inspection but I must say I was impressed by the detailed report and the pictures you took really brought to life the issues presented. I also must say I appreciated you walking through the mechanicals of the home with me on a level that was easy for me to understand."

"Larry performed our home inspection on very short notice. Larry was prompt, courteous, very accommodating and thorough when explaining all the details of the inspection. He was very professional and was even early to the appointment. When we arrived he was ready and waiting to go over all of the outdoor inspection areas. As a first time home buyer and on a tight schedule Larry couldn't have made this more of an easy and enjoyable of an experience. I would recommend him to any and all home buyers."

"Being a new home buyer Larry walked me through everything making sure I understood all that he was looking for and finding. He made sure that he didn't move on until I fully understood each section. Larry made himself available on a very short notice and even weeks later after my inspection he is answering all my questions and responds very quickly to my emails. I would definitely recommend him to others."

"We just had the offer accepted on our first house and needed to have an inspection done the next day. Cottage Hill was in the top 5 in the area. Larry was organized, polite, and calmly explained the basics of what an inspection covered. He was able to meet me the next day too! Larry arrived on time, even a few minutes early. He got right to work and touched base with my husband and I throughout the process to show and explain the issues he found. He is extremely knowledgeable and very easy to understand when describing complex issues. I felt very comfortable with him and would absolutely recommend him to anyone. The inspection took about 3 1/2 to 4 hours and we received a thorough report with photos and diagrams of all the issues along with suggestions of how to improve areas for better safety. He is worth every penny."

"Mr. Coha inspected a home that was a HUD foreclosure and had been sitting vacant for almost two years. I was very concerned about the condition of the house. Mr. Coha's inspection was so thorough that it relieved my concerns. He inspected areas I didn't know to check and had very good suggestions about how to correct the problems. I bought the house and fixed the problems with much more confidence than I thought possible. Ultimately he was able to dispel the false concerns I had and pointed me in the direction of what to really take care of. He covered everything: my circuit breaker panel box & wiring, flooring issues, siding separation outside, my chimney, my roof, etc.

Mr. Coha arrived on time, looked very professional and behaved very professionally. He ensured that both I (the purchaser) and my father (my guide) were equally informed during the inspection. His demeanor was calm and he was full of information. He led us through the various areas of the house, ensuring we covered everything. He made suggestions where appropriate but always referred us to the relevant trade to make the final call on how to repair the problems. He brought up new issues we hadn't noticed without being alarmist. I walked away knowing that some big repairs I had been afraid of weren't going to be as bad as I thought - and a new list of repairs that were probably a bit tough to fix - but I felt confident that it could be done. And it turned out that each contractor who came to give me estimates suggested the same method to repair the problem that Mr. Coha mentioned. So his suggestions were good ones. I bought the house!"

"Larry was very professional and thorough in his inspection, took a lot time to explain what he was doing, if there were any improvements that could be made and provided some recommendations as to roofers. I would definitely recommend Larry to anyone that wants a very professional & comprehensive inspection/evaluation of their property."

"Larry was 15 minutes early and not only did he take his time and be very thorough but he also explained everything he was doing and what was necessary to fix. The inspection was completed and I had the full 33 page report via email by 9:30am the next morning. I also got a phone call to make sure I got the report OK. Thank you Cottage Hill!"

"Larry did a complete home inspection for both exterior and interior for my property. He is responsible, professional, skillful, always explained details when asked. He arrived on time, did an excellent job on the inspection and asked a reasonable price. He was responsible for all details and pointed out the big issues."

"I found Cottage Hill on Angie's List and emailed Larry. He contacted me right away, provided an estimate and a detailed explanation of his process. Prior to the inspection he emailed some additional informational materials. He arrived at the appointed time and completed the inspection in exactly the amount of time he estimated. He is very professional and knowledgeable. During the inspection he made us aware of issues and provided a very detailed report less than 24 hours after completing the inspection. I highly recommend Cottage Hill Inspections, Inc. Larry is also a great guy and was a pleasure to do business with."

"Larry was very knowledgeable about everything and gave advice along the way on various items. He definitely knows what he is doing. This is our first home purchase and we had a lot of questions which he patiently answered. He did everything he promised including having a full inspection report emailed the next morning. Larry was very professional and is comfortable to work with."

"Inspections of two condo units that I had purchase contracts on, both in the first quarter 2010. The inspections were very thorough and Larry provided a very detailed report the next day via email. He also gave me a $25 discount on the second inspection.

Larry spent a couple of hours going through each condo. He explained the ramifications of each of the issues he encountered. In the first inspection he pointed out wiring issues that could have been a fire hazard later. On the second inspection he identified a fuse box that has a notorious reputation as being defective. I was very happy with the inspections and would recommend Larry to anyone needing a home inspection."

"I contacted Cottage Hill to inspect the workmanship done by a contractor on my driveway. My phone call was returned quickly, which is very important to me. Larry came to my home and inspected my driveway. After only 1 business day, Larry provided a very detailed report which included photographs and a summary of his findings. The report was nicely put together in a spiral bound booklet. He also provided a digital file of the report and pictures. Everything turned out great! I was very pleased with the entire experience."

Joe

"Larry did a fantastic job. He was on-time. He spent 4 hours on the inspection. He is very experienced and has a background in electrical engineering. The finished report was very impressive with lots of details on the issues found. Overall I was highly satisfied and most importantly, confident that after such a thorough inspection I knew the exact condition of house."

"Larry was courteous and professional from start to finish. He was very thorough and explained exactly what he was doing, what he was looking for and what he found in terms that I could understand. His final report was extremely thorough and helpful, and I would absolutely recommend this company to ANYONE. I am VERY pleased with the service here."

Kristen

"Larry was great from beginning to end. He was very responsive to my initial inquiry and was able to inspect the property on short notice. He took his time going through every nook and cranny, explaining to me the entire time what he was doing and his findings. He separated issues into varying degrees of priority and concern. I found him to be quite knowledgeable and very professional. He spent about five hours going through 3600 finished square feet. Larry also sent to me a very comprehensive report the evening of the same day, and followed up with a mailed paper copy. I'm very impressed at how thorough the report is with pictures and recommendations. As a final compliment, I had a friend of mine who is a very handy individual and very picky/critical about service people in general accompany me. After we were done, he told me he was really impressed by Larry and kept his number for his own future reference. I can't think of anything more complimentary to Larry than that."

"Larry provided home inspection services for a home that we had under contract. He inspected the exterior and interior of the house including the roof, plumbing, heat and air conditioning, carbon monoxide, electrical, and foundation.

When we arrived 10 minutes early, he was already there. He was extremely professional and personable. We first walked around the exterior of the property where he explained everything that we saw. He took the time to explain everything to us in a way that we could understand. Then we went into the interior of the home where he very systematically worked his way from the basement to the upper level checking all the heating/cooling systems, electrical systems, plumbing, appliances, etc. while still explaining what we need to do to maintain them as well as any necessary fixes. He also brought someone with him who set up a radon test for us. Less than 24 hours later we received our very comprehensive, organized and thorough inspection report which will help us determine what needs to be done to the house before we move in or shortly thereafter. We were so impressed with his services – especially after a less-than-stellar experience two months ago with a different home inspector. Thank you Larry!!"

"Larry was excellent. He was very flexible as we had to change the time a couple of times. Despite rainy weather he completed a very thorough inspection at a reasonable price. He finished in three hours, taking his time to thoroughly examine electrical, roofing, HVAC, etc. He provided a digital report within 24 hours including photography and a typed up report summary of all issues. He was wonderful to work with and I wouldn't hesitate recommending him again."
