Currently, all buyers NH & MA home inspections are performed by Paul Maida. You may expect the inspector to arrive at the property before you to preview the exterior. This is also usually the time when the inspector familiarizes himself with your soon-to-be home, typically walks the roof and starts his investigation for wood destroying insects. We do encourage our clients to be present and take an active role in their MA or NH home inspection. This is a great time to be informed about the property conditions, ask questions, and learn about any components that may need attention.
