Ron helped us out with an inspection 8 years ago when we first moved into Seattle. We didn't know anyone and therefore didn't have a reliable source for our home inspection. Our realtor recommended Ron and we weren't sorry! He did an amazing inspection of our 1923 home, one which provided us not only negotiating points but also a map of all the various things that would require repair and maintenance over the next few years. His report and advice was invaluable as we were able to plan and keep our home in tip top shape without unpleasant surprises. When we placed an offer on our next home a few weeks back, we didn't consider calling anyone else. Ron came out and performed his signature thorough inspection with some new twists (the drone was a great and extremely useful touch). His report was available within 24 hours and greatly assisted in getting the last bits of our negotiation closed out. We would gladly recommend Ron to anyone in need of a home inspection!
Ron and David arrived early for the inspection, took the time to explain a variety of the steps in the process, and didn't mind our questions. They addressed all of the areas of the house and property as you would expect, and then they went above and beyond by talking through specific challenges that might arise, code violations, and identifying items that look random and unidentifiable to a non-inspector. I highly recommend R.W. West for your next inspection: you receive skilled, transparent, honest consultation combined with extensive experience in the area. Local experience, local knowledge, and the emphasis on safety for their team and the (future) homeowners is invaluable.
Ron did an excellent job and was completely thorough. He was professional, knowledgeable and friendly. My kids loved seeing his drone fly around the roof of the house. They thought it was the coolest thing ever. We are very glad we got the inspection done. Even though our house is a new build, he found SEVERAL items of concern to us that we are now going to bring up to our builder. Including a small gas leak. We are very thankful for him! Would recommend Ron, hands down.
Ron is an excellent inspector. Professional, courteous and strong attention to detail. Very highly recommend his services.
Had the pleasure of meeting Ron and having him inspect our home purchase before closing. He was very professional and friendly, and most importantly, thorough. He checked our crawlspaces, attic, and other hard to reach and identify places, and produced for us a thorough report that helped us in identifying exactly what we were getting into. Highly recommended!
This is my third home-buying experience and therefore my third home inspection experience. By far, R W West was the most straightforward and professional... more
