CROMWELL HOME INSPECTIONS.

DONE RIGHT. GUARANTEED.

MEET YOUR LOCAL HOME INSPECTION TEAM

We are a full service home inspection company that works for the benefit of the Home Buyer. We are a local business, with Bill and Jason performing all of the inspections. We have done almost 3000 inspections as of Oct 2017. We are some of the few inspectors that still gets up on the roof, crawls through attics, and crawlspaces. Digital photos are taken throughout the inspection and are inserted into a 50+ page report. The report is very easy to read and understand with recommendations to correct every situation. Termite inspection, well adequacy testing, water, and radon testing is also available. Our prices are competitive. So much work goes into our inspections to make sure nothing is left unchecked. It really is a great value, and a great way to protect yourself from the unknown. Serving the people of central CT for over ten years.

Bill and his staff are the best in the business. As a Realtor I exclusively recommend Bill and his team at HouseMaster. When it came time for my wife and me to purchase our new home it wasn't even a question that we'd call on Bill's expertise to ensure we knew exactly what we were getting. He is extremely knowledge, personable, patient and punctual. Quite frankly, he is the best home inspector in our market without question.

Extremely professional, knowledgeable, thorough. I left the inspection without one single question left unanswered. It made any type of thought process regarding any decision making easy. Information was detailed and was given in such a way that was understandable to everyone concerned. I do not have even one negative comment. It was a great learning experience.

Bill was professional, courteous and personable. He answered all our questions in a comprehensive manner and we were very confident that he would provide a very thorough inspection for us. We received the entire report the same day. It was excellent and the photos were very helpful in seeing some potential areas to fix. We would recommend HouseMaster to all of our friends. Thank you Bill!
