"Tim has inspected two homes for me and did a great job both times. He was very descriptive with everything that he saw at the house and answered all my questions while I was there. I ended up having to reschedule one of them a couple times and he was extremely prompt and accommodated with those changes as they came. His online scheduling system is also very helpful for me, right when I picked a date and time he emailed a confirmation. I have had inspections with more expensive and large companies but I have never gotten the customer services that Tim provides. Great price with great service!"

"Extremely thorough home inspection.
Tim showed up a few minutes before our scheduled appointment and made sure the occupants of the home were expecting him.
The home was more complex than Tim anticipated, and took almost 7 hours of documentation on-site. Tim did not charge us for the extra hours on-site, nor for the extra work required when writing the report. It had to be sent in two separate emails it was so large."

good experience. Tim did a thorough inspection and
provided an excellent report. Our inspection was for
a new-construction house, and he pointed out and explained
all the things that might have been done wrong by
the builder. Great value for the price as well. Would
recommend to anyone."
received all of your inspection reports. They are
awesome! They are the best inpections reports I have
ever seen. Thank you very much."
I had some problems with my home shortly after I bought
it I asked Mr. McGill’s advice. He went through my
home and found numerous situations that were not addressed,
or probably even looked at during my first home inspection.
I now always get his input when I need any work done
so that I can be assured that any work is truly understood
by a contractor and the contractor is aware that I
have someone to keep them aware of what is expected
of them. He brings actual work experience and understanding
of problems and multiple solutions to home structural
and remodeling needs."
that I've actually read the report, I'm really impressed.
You're very thorough and I'm very happy to have a checklist
of things to work on. You caught a lot of things we
didn't. I don't know anyone looking to buy a house right
now, but when I do, I'll be sure to give them your name."
has been a great resource for me and has always been
very professional with every single one of my clients.
Throughout our careers, Tim has become my go to guy
in anything related to home inspections, construction,
and more. He offers the best services in town, along
with very competitive prices. Tim has always been
very patient and willing to take the extra time to
fully explain the details in the inspection reports,
which goes a long ways. Very gracious for your services
was very thorough. Not only did he look at the major
stuff, but also the minor stuff some other people would
have overlooked. He was prompt and gave a good inspection
report. Afterwards he went over everything that was
on the report."

Of Work: We hired
Tim McGill after searching online for home inspectors
and hired him to come and conduct a whole house inspection
for us to determine if it qualified for our loan for
the purchase of this house. Tim inspected the house
from top, from crawling on the roof to searching down
to the tiniest crack in the garage floor. From torn
screen in the storm door to condensation that formed
in an unvented area in a crawl space. He explained
how everything happened and what the fix was for it.
When we hired Tim McGill of PortlandHomeInspect.com,
we just didn't know what to expect. We had never had
a home inspection done before. We were really surprised
at all that goes into an inspection. When we set up
an appointment on line, he called within hours to
confirm. When we arrived at the given time, he was
already there outside and looking the exterior over.
He was climbing on the roof and reporting any little
nails that were exposed in need of tarring or replacing.
He was in the attic, crawling around looking at insulation
and air flow. He reported no exhaust was vented out
from the bathroom fans which in time would cause mold
and mildew. He made sure every single outlet in the
house worked and reported any loose caulking around
tub and sinks that needed immediate attention. He
took around 50+ pictures. He just worked the house
from top to bottom. Nothing left unturned. He was
at the house around 3 hours inspecting. He would point
out every little detail to us as we went along with
him, and was always happy to answer any and all questions
we had for him. He was so patient and understanding
as we had to bring our 4 year old Granddaughter along
with us and she was a little distracting at times
but it never seemed to bother him. His report was
emailed to us at the end of the day with all pictures
and details of flaws in house but in the end, we got
the "thumbs up" of approval. I would recommend
Tim to anyone who wants a good and thorough house
inspection and his price was unbelievably low from
what we checked on, from other home inspectors in
the area. Our "new home" is 1640 square
feet and he only charged us $250. WOW That was so
nice since all the other inspectors were like $375
up to $500. We were very pleased with his work. If
you are interested in hiring him, this is his info....
