Comments: Ron was very thorough. I did not realize before the inspection that he would not walk the roof. He checked the roof by observing it from the ladder. I don't know if it is necessary to have it done from the roof or not. He said the roof looked very good, and had been done with good workmanship.

Review Date: 12/02/2015 | Author: Steve D., Fountain Hills, AZ

Comments: I selected Essential Home Inspections for a prospective second home purchase and am extremely pleased with my choice. Ron Bittleman and associates are extremely professional, knowledgeable, and thorough. The true test of a home inspector is to uncover potential issues that may not be evident but may come calling down the road. Ron and crew uncovered a host of potential problems with the home we were purchasing, and having them on our side proved worthwhile beyond measure during the negotiation of a final purchase price. At the end of the day, Essential's very competitive pricing, extensive reporting, and committed follow-up to the client place them heads above other home inspection firms I've dealt with in the past. Best of all, Ron is one of the friendliest and courteous individuals who will take whatever time is necessary to explain his findings and ensure that the client is comfortable with the information generated from his inspection. A truly terrific outfit and one I recommend highly in the Phoenix area!!

Review Date: 11/28/2015 | Author: Kathleen J., Mesa, AZ

Comments: Ron & Cheryl Bittleman were not only efficient but warm and friendly. They made sure I saw and concerns they wanted to warn me about. He even crawled under the mobile home space that was only 3' wide. spiders and all. The report was very thorough 81 pages. I would hire them again if I ever move again.

Review Date: 10/17/2015 | Author: Peter L., Maricopa, AZ

Comments: Friendly and professional

Review Date: 07/09/2015 | Author: Andrena M., Mesa, AZ

Comments: Ron is very thorough and will produce an extensive report. I found him because he inspected the home I was selling. I was impressed with the inspection so I hired him to look at the house I am purchasing. Even the owner/investor was impressed with the report! When it comes to home inspectors I honestly don't think you will find a better one. He is more thorough and much more reasonably priced than many other home inspectors.

Review Date: 05/14/2014 | Author: Amanda P., San Tan Valley, AZ

Comments: I am a single mother of 4 so I needed to make sure the home I was purchasing would be safe enough for my family as well as not becoming a ���money pit��� as I do not have money just laying around to put into major repairs on a home. Ron was thorough and noticed the smallest of things. I was amazed at how detailed he was in his findings and made me feel confident about purchasing the home. I felt like I came away with even more than what I paid for and now I knew every inch of my soon to be new home. Thanks Ron!!

Review Date: 02/07/2014 | Author: B R., Chandler, AZ

Comments: Ron was very knowledgeable on the complete inspection process. His electrician background was extremely beneficial as most homes have lots of electrical problems and Ron can find them easily. He was especially fast on turning around the final inspection reports which were done in extreme detail, complete with photos that were marked-up( in color) where the issues were in the photos. I would totally recommend Ron to others. Thanks, Ron!

Review Date: 08/19/2013 | Author: a Neighbor, Gilbert, AZ

Comments: I was greatly impressed with the prompt response, follow up, communication, availability, and last, but not least, the methodology in which the inspection was done and reported. I was a remote home buyer from another state, yet felt that this task was done as if I was local. Very competent individual and would definitely recommend him again to any one.

Review Date: 08/16/2013 | Author: Margie C., Maricopa, AZ

Comments: Personable and helpful with all questions. Very thorough. Offered additional information that was very helpful with one issue.

Review Date: 07/28/2013 | Author: Ed B., chandler, AZ

Comments: Folks, look no further. Ron is the guy you want to perform your home inspection. We are in the process of purchasing a home in the east valley. There was already a home inspection performed by the seller. I had Ron perform an inspection for us and he found more issues with the home than the first home inspector. Although the majority of the issues are minor, the fact that Ron took the time and effort to meticulously inspect every inch inside and out made me feel quite confident that the inspection was done right.

Review Date: 07/19/2013 | Author: a Neighbor, Mesa, AZ

Comments: The inspection involved the interior of a two-story condo. He checked every electrical outlet and appliance, and every water fixture. He found several small problems that were not obvious. The service helped us get a few things done before close of escrow that we did not have to pay for later.

Review Date: 07/08/2013 | Author: Belinda B., Phoenix, AZ

Comments: I would highly recommend Ron to anyone requiring a thorough inspection. I was extremely pleased with his services. If you need an experienced and honest inspector, Ron is your guy!! You will not regret it.

Review Date: 10/07/2012 | Author: Mary J., Maricopa, AZ

Comments: We were extremely impressed with Ron and will recommend him to anyone needing a good quality home inspector. We are in the process of buying a HUD home that has lots of issues. Ron took his time and his inspection took a lot longer than he expected, but he was very patient and willing to do the work! Our realtor was there for the inspection and so was a heating/cooling specialist. Both of them were really impressed with Ron also. They both agreed that usually inspectors would be through the house in much less time and not be as detailed as he was. We felt also that the price was very good for the inspection we got! Thank you!

Review Date: 02/15/2012 | Author: Richard B., Coolidge, AZ

Comments: this company is very efficient and gives you a in depth report of whats really going on in your house this is very important in your decision making when purchasing a home, none of us wants a money pit no matter how much you love the home. They take a lot of pictures and that is very important , so you can see the problems and determine if this is something that you want to do . I have had many home inspectors in the last three years and Essential Home Inspections will be the only one i will call in my future needs. They also have the Termite Inspection done for you by a professional company which is included in their great price.
