"We've had home inspections from other companies when purchasing houses in the past and Maida Inspections was absolutely the best we've ever seen. Everyone we dealt with at the company was very responsive and professional. The cost wasn't cheap, but it's in line with other companies in the area and I think we got every penny's worth. Paul showed up early and completed some of the exterior inspection before we even got there. He was extremely knowledgeable and thorough, and was very patient and detailed in his explanations and gave us a lot of information about all possible concerns and actual issues he found. After his inspection we received a lengthy and complete report detailing exactly what he found and we were very confident that his results were accurate. Even more compelling - as I write this review almost 3 years later, I can tell you I still think Paul's inspection report was dead-on accurate. The couple of immediate issues Paul found were all we had to repair after we bought the house. Everything he told us to watch out for turned out to be something that eventually needed to be repaired (or will need to be at some point in the future), and because we already knew it was a concern we were able to address each issue promptly as needed. There have been no surprises--we have not found a single thing wrong with the house that was not included on his report! I hope I won't be buying a house again any time in the near future, but if I do, Maida Inspections will be my first choice for the home inspection."
Thank you for the inspiring home inspection you performed today. I am grateful for your thorough and knowledgeable inspection of this property. I am glad it's a suitable place to purchase. I would also like to take this opportunity to thank you for inspecting the [other] property located in Lunenburg, MA. Your expertise saved me from making a huge mistake there. Thank you again for everything, I will highly recommend your services."
"Paul Maida and his associate, Rick, performed a detailed and meticulous home inspection on a house that we are seeking to purchase. His service was exemplary. I cannot say enough about the service he performed with exacting detail. This man is a credit to his profession and did a superb job uncovering many details that would have otherwise been discovered much later. This is the 2nd time we've used Maida Inspection and I would most certainly use his services again for piece of mind that the job has been done correctly.
Paul and Rick were on the roof when I arrived. As usual he was early to the job site and the inspection was well underway. We spent the first hour (after my arrival) inspecting the exterior home, grounds and structures. Paul was not shy when it came to poking and prodding to uncover weaknesses. Everything being documented with a photograph. Many observations were made and helpful advice provided. The inspection moved to the basement where another hour was spent examining the physical plant and structure (electrical, water, boiler, water heater, sewer, overall foundation condition, crawl spaces and joists), nothing was overlooked. The remainder of the home was documented by photo. Every faucet, drain, window, switch and electrical outlet was tested. His fees were the best money spent throughout the purchase process."
"I used Paul Maida as a home inspector a few times when buying a home, and he does the most thorough job of going through a home that I have ever seen. He spends hours and gets into the nooks and crannies you never even thought existed. I highly recommend having him inspect your property before putting all of your money into buying something! I found him by recommendation from a friend, and I wasn't disappointed. He also sends you a full electronic report of the results within 24 hours of the inspection."
We want to thank you so much for spending the afternoon on Saturday doing such a thorough inspection. We both found it really informative and are grateful for your explanations and suggestions. Your report was also extremely helpful and went beyond our expectations. We are moving forward with the purchase and feel comfortable doing so. It was a pleasure meeting you and we will certainly be recommending Maida Services to others!"

I am Writing to express my profound gratitude for the excellent home inspection you performed for us. Watching you, I felt my comfort level soar, as you meticulously explored our house-to-be. I shoce you because everyone said you were the best, and they were so right. I cannot imagine you could have been anymore thorough if you were buying the home for yourself. Your eyes saw everything, you patiently explained your observations and then, most important to nervous home buyers, you put them all in their proper perspective. Your detailed report also documented advice that I am sure we rely on heavily in the coming years. We thank you, Sandy and Rebecca so very much."

"From my initial contact with Paul straight through to the post inspection conversation, he has been nothing short of an absolute pleasure to deal with. I can use many adjectives to describe my experience, but those most resounding include: Detailed, thorough, patient, objective, constructively critical, knowledgeable, and again, detailed and thorough."....
...."Paul spent well over and hour investigating my roof and attic, in search of signs of disrepair. He talked through his findings with me on the spot, provided a detailed report including a slideshow of 37 roof and attic photographs, and he then followed up with a phone call to talk through his findings. His investigation identified problem areas and he prescribed remedies for repair that may extend the useful life of my roof by a year or possibly even years, given some minor attention.
He provided an absolutely superior level of customer service, in an era where clients’ expectations largely go unfulfilled. I wholeheartedly recommend Maida Services to anyone needing home inspection work. They go above and beyond.
I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for the extremely thorough job you did! I appreciate all your insight and taking the time to explain each of the inspection items to me, as well as the detailed inspection report. You made what could be a very trying and difficult time easy and painless. I have no reservations about contracting you for another inspection or recommending you to someone who needs an inspection."
Just a short note of thanks for the time spent with me and the inspection report generated in the above captioned matter. I was very impressed with the apparent thoroughness with your work. Thanks.

Great job on the report! Very thorough and I believe you captured all items. We have utilized your expertise 3 or 4(?) times which have allowed us to make very educated decisions on homes. Your vast knowledge of systems, building codes and workmanship as well as antique or new construction adds to the value you bring. In addition, the digital photo and written inspection report go far beyond any other inspection report I've seen. Thanks again. Working with you is always a learning experience ...and fun!"
"We recently hired Maida Services for inspection of our new home. When we arrived for the inspection, we found that Paul had already been there for at least 30 minutes and had completed a good amount of exterior work. He walked us through EVERYTHING in and around the house – the yard, roof, gutters, flashing, chimneys, drainage, shingles, entire heating system, plumbing, electric, foundation, appliances, bathrooms, windows, doors, floors, stair ways, and everything else you can possibly think of were thoroughly inspected. During the entire process, Paul was helpful, personable, and professional. There wasn't a stone left unturned. As a result, the full inspection took about 3 and a half hours, but it was time well spent. He took pictures of everything and provided us with a very detailed report just 48 hours later. We now feel well educated about our new home. We know what needs to be fixed immediately and what may cause an issue in the future. I cannot recommend Paul highly enough – it was time and money very well spent!"
"Paul is really, really thorough. He found problems that other inspectors completely missed in my building in Newton, MA. For under $500, Paul spent 3-4 hours on the physical walk-through, all the while educating me (home owner) as to what he was looking at and why."
"It seems that it's not very often in today's fast-paced world that someone takes time out to write a letter commending outstanding service. I know that I personally rarely write letters of this nature, but my experience with Maida Inspection Services just had to be recognized."....
...."When I think of my overall experience with Maida Inspection Services, I think of several things: responsive, prompt, courteous, thorough. These are valuable qualities in any business transaction and the professionalism, commitment level of you and your staff are key assets to your company. Again, while I don't typically take time to write letters of this nature, I feel it was important to write this letter and thank you again. In the future I will enthusiastically recommend your firm to others. I wish you much continued success."
