I had the pleasure of meeting John years ago when we worked together. During that time I got to know his work ethic and credibility. So, I was more than excited to learn that he had become a home inspector, as I was preparing to move back to the area, and would be needing one.
There is no other person that I would trust more than John when it comes to inspecting my home. Most home inspectors are “cookie cutter.” They come in and look at the “major” issues and areas, spending maybe an hour or two inspecting your home. A lot of home inspectors that I have used in the past do not have the tools or expertise that John has. My home is my “castle” and I want to know if there are issues that need addressed or fixed.
John arrived promptly for our appointment. He explained what he would be doing and looking for and immediately went to work. He spent roughly 4 hours inspecting my new home from top to bottom. I have never seen someone so dedicated to their job. I truly felt as though I was given “white glove treatment.”
After the inspection John sat down with me and explained what he had seen/found. There were so many things that easily could have been missed, but were not (cracks in bricks, gaps in siding, outlet issues, venting…). John even suggested setting the water heater at 130 instead of 120 degrees to prevent a certain aquatic borne disease. It is little details like that that instill my faith and trust in a home inspector’s work.
The report that John compiled on my home was 61 pages long. In the past I might have received a 12 to 24 page report from inspectors. John informed me that if I had questions he was available to answer them for me at any time. This made me feel like a valued customer.
I highly recommend John for your next home inspection.
I couldn’t be happier with my experience with Accurate Home Inspection. I walked alongside John DeBusk for the first part of the inspection. From the outset, I could tell he was going to be thorough, detailed and professional.
The house I purchased was built in 1900. John was familiar with the pitfalls that can accompany a home built in that time period and alleviated all of my concerns. He enlightened me on several things that had been done and needed to be done to the house.
The final report was thick, but cleanly organized and easy to navigate. He sent me the report in digital format and in binder form, which covers the bases for both the tech-savvy and those who like it old school.
We were also easily able to generate an offer-contingent repair list to present to the sellers as part of the package that AHI includes.
If you’re looking to buy a home, or even have a routine inspection done on your current home, Accurate Home Inspection will leave you feeling satisfied.Doug A.
This was the best home inspection experience we have ever had. John was professional, prompt, and answered all of our questions. The quality of his inspection work was outstanding. John caught issues a prior inspector had missed. I highly recommend Accurate Home Inspection!Mary M.
Accurate Home Inspection is as in depth and professional as they come. Being done during the middle of the day, I met john at my home at a set time. He was on time for the appointment which was important to me because I left work shortly to be there for the inspection. He took the time to explain what he was looking at and why and or how something could be a significant issue. His final report was completed and given to me in a professional binder. Very happy with John DeBusk and Accurate Home Inspection.Jeremy B.
Short Version: I really can’t imagine that there is a better home inspector in the Lafayette area. The world would be pretty awesome if everyone was as competent and had as much pride in their work as he does. Do yourself a favor and hire John to do your home inspection. His prices are fair and the product he delivers is top notch. This ended up being one of the least stressful parts of the whole home buying process for me because I felt like I had a true expert guiding me.
Long Version: John came highly recommended by my sister and her husband after his inspection of their new home in March 2017. I remembered them both raving about his thoroughness, attention to detail, and easy-to-understand explanations. So when I went to buy my own home last month, I gave John a call. After working with him myself, I agree with their assessment 100%.
As a first time home buyer, I wanted to know that the “big things” were in good condition on my future home. Cosmetic things can be repaired fairly easily by most people, but structural issues, roofing issues, a bad HVAC system, etc. can cost thousands.
John took the time to discuss any questions I had. Although, as I kept telling him, he was so thorough, that I really didn’t need to ask many. I closed on my house 3 weeks ago and have literally been addressing each item of concern that he mentioned in his 70+ page inspection report. What an amazing resource for a home owner to have. I’ve actually taken entirely too long to write this review because I’ve been so busy at the house making sure I follow all of his advice!
Thank you John!
Once the seller accepted our offer, we were in a pinch to find a home inspector. We called all the inspectors that our realtor recommended, but none were able to do our inspection within our closing timeline. So… I went to the internet to find home inspectors in our area with good reviews. I came across John DeBusk and Accurate Home Inspection. This turned out to be a great turn of events. John was able to make it out to the house within a few days and did a phenomenal job. He spent at least 4 hours going through every part of the house–inside and outside. He took pictures of everything and provided thorough documentation in a very short turnaround. My wife and I have purchased a few houses in the past, and John was by far the best home inspector that we have had. In addition to his thoroughness, he is also quite personable. He inspected our house for “monsters” too…. I.e, he provided a door handle hanger that stated the the kids rooms were certified monster free:) If you want a home inspector that will look out for your (the buyer’s) best interest, call John and Accurate Home Inspection. Most highly recommended.Claude M.
Excellent service! John provided a very thorough inspection report for the house we were buying in West Lafayette. Everything was done in a timely professional manner and the communication was great.Julia L.
I heard from a friend that John’s services for home inspections were as thorough and well done as anyone around so I gave him a shot. He met and exceeded my expectations in every way possible. Not only do you get an accurate, dependable, and honest inspection from John, but you get access to tools that can help you with home ownership that is specific to the house being inspected. He may cost a little bit more than other inspectors, but what you get from his services is much more than you could ever imagine. If you need a home inspection, call Accurate Home Inspection. You will not be disappointed.Hunter G.
Very thorough. Came highly recommend and was worth every penny of his fee. Very polite too. Inspection included a home maintenance guide complete with pictures taken during the inspection that would have proven invaluable had I purchased the house.Kyle A.
We got a list of inspectors from our realtor. I started calling around getting quotes. When I called Accurate and spoke to John, one of the first things he said was that he wasn’t going to be the cheapest inspector but there was a reason for that. He then went on to describe all that’s included in his inspections and the tools he uses to check the house. After I got all the quotes, my wife wanted to go with the cheapest inspector since she does our budget. I hired John because of what he had to say on the phone. The home we purchased was older and in the country so we had a lot of testing done on the house and the inspection price was $550. John gave us a 62 page inspection report with a ton of tips, maintenance suggestions and problems that needed fixed. We were able to use the inspection report to negotiate many repairs and thousands off the asking price. Best $550 we ever spent. When my wife and I were going over the inspection binder John gave us, she admitted I choose the right inspector. Thanks John for a great inspection and for getting my wife to admit I was right about something!Daniel M.
John did an outstanding job. He was very thorough and very polite. He took the time to explain everything he was doing and what he was looking for. He answered all the questions I had and explained things very well. He didn’t miss a thing and will definitely use him again. Thank!!Kyle R.
John came to the home I was purchasing to complete an inspection. I was very impressed with his thoroughness. Prior to inspecting the inside of the home, he inspected the outside. He made the decision to inspect outside first because he paid attention to the weather and learned rain was expected the day of inspection. He did not want to delay the inspection or the report. I really appreciated that. John was also very patient with me as I asked a lot of questions. I am very thankful for the binder with the home maintenance checklist and some potential vendors. I feel that I will be able to do basic maintenance as a result of John’s report and the binder. I would highly recommend John to everyone needing a home inspection.Caren A.
As a home buyer I contacted John for an inspection. The house was a foreclosure, therefore, it was very frustrating dealing with the bank to turn the utilities on! He came to the house 3 different times and charge nothing extra!! He is very friendly and highly knowledged. If you have little ones he offers the kids coloring pages and crayons while the inspection is in process!! I deffinitely give him 5 stars. Great job John!Giselle B.
John was recommended to us and we couldn’t be happier. He was honest and upfront about what needed done. You can tell he really knows what he is doing and takes pride in a job well done. He not only showed what needed done but taught us along the way. I would highly recommend him to anyone needing this type of work.Kelsey G.
Our realtor had a lot of good things to say about John and Accurate Home Inspections. After using him for our home inspection I see why. Not only did we get a very detailed report but John taught us so much about the home. John pointed out every area of importance about the house that he wanted us to be aware of. I wanted to see the crawlspace and John even loaned me a protective suit so I wouldn’t get dirty. He also told us to call him if I had any questions. I would definitely recommend John and Accurate Home Inspection! A+Marcus F.
John is fantastic! He’s extremely thorough and was great about answering all of my questions. He saved us a lot of money on an expensive roof repair, which we were very happy about. I was also impressed that he had coloring pages and crayons to keep my little ones occupied during the inspection. It was an all-around great experience, and I have no hesitation in recommending John to anyone needing a home inspection.Sarah J.
John was absolutely great. He is very respectful of the house, very thorough with his inspection, and very knowledgeable. I chose to meet him during the last hour of the inspection, when he was able to walk back through the house and show me what he found and teach me about the house. The binder I received has proven very useful and he made sure I knew I could contact him in the future should I ever have any questions. I am very grateful for his service; I highly recommend him.Maranda T.
Highly recommended! We were moving from out of state and couldn’t attend the inspection. John mailed us the inspection in a binder and he included tons of details about the home. He uploaded a bunch of pictures that weren’t used in the report so we could see all the details of the home. There was even a video that showed us the neighborhood. John did a great inspection and went above and beyond. Thanks again!Jason M.
The inspector our realtor suggested was booked. We called John and he worked us in on a Saturday. He did a great job and we really like the app he gave us. Would recommend to anyone.Vance G.
Great detail in the report. Professional and friendly inspector. Really liking the home app we received. Recommend!Henry R.
Very friendly and knowledgeable. Encouraged questions to be asked if I saw something that he may have missed or wouldn’t normally say anything about. Overall really great and I would definitely recommend him to anyone I know looking to have their home inspected!Chris C.
I would recommend. Detailed inspection and report. I received lots of extras in addition to the inspection report. Money well spent.Larry B.
Both my husband and I were extremely pleased with the level of service John provided. He was through and detail oriented. Any questions we had he answered and did not rush his inspection. We were impressed with the binder he gave us. The binder contained detailed pictures of problems or potential problems that needed to be fixed (in color). We even got an energy report. The added bonus was the coloring pages for my kids. I would definitely recommend his business to my family and friends.Angela B.
John is super thorough and genuine with every inspection. Very detailed! I would highly recommend John to anyone needing a true home inspection!Spencer C.
We’ve used Accurate Home Inspection for two houses and greatly appreciated the thoroughness of the inspection, the professionalism of the inspector and the report process.Karen V.
I was very pleased with John and his inspection process. He was professional and explained everything that he was doing and how he would follow up afterwards. I couldn’t have asked for a better experience and am very glad I chose Accurate Home Inspections.Kent S.
John did an EXCELLENT job! He was very thorough and pleasant. You can tell he loves what he does. He not only provided us with a digital and physical report, but we get emails with tips on how to save the most money in every area of our home. If we ever need an inspection again, we will use him. Definitely worth the money. Highly recommend!Alyssa D.
This is my third house and by far this inspection was the most thorough! I will definitely use this company again for our next and hopefully final home…Kelly E.
As a first time home buyer, the inspection was something that was very important to me. I wanted to understand the process, what was in the house, and have thorough knowledge of the details that were found. John at Accurate Home Inspection did an amazing job. He gave me step by step explanations of what he was doing and what he found, along with pictures of said findings. John was EXTREMELY thorough and made me feel that I was getting honest answers about what was happening in my potential home. He made everything easy to understand and helped me learn in the process. The quality of the inspection and report were excellent. I’m so thankful that I used this company and would use it again in the future.Ashley P.
John inspected every inch of our home and gave us recommendations on things that can be fixed that were minor. He was very detailed in his report and explained everything we didn’t know. I highly recommend him as a home inspector.Katie M.
I’ve gotten a few home inspections for my father’s homes and John was the best by far. He spent hours reviewing everything. He even delivered a manual with everything we went over in person the day before the next day (on a Sunday). Will definitely use him again in the future. Also made sure I understood everything about the home and his findings! Even on a price standpoint, he’s very competitive and for what you get, you’re getting a steal.Charles V.
John did an amazing job. He is a skilled professional, and he was both thorough and helpful in his evaluations. We ended up purchasing the house and I have found everything that he shared with us to be accurate. Thank you so much!Daniel N.
Second to none! Outstanding service and communication. Could not have asked for a more detailed inspection and greatly appreciate the time he takes to complete the job. Will recommend to all buyers in the future I come across.Amber H.
My wife and I were first time home-buyers so we were nervous about getting a good inspector that would explain things to use thoroughly and patiently. John met all of our expectations! He was very thorough and explained everything while we walked through the home with him. John provided us with valuable information to tell the buyers to fix and for our own records. We feel confident that our inspection was the best we could receive.Ryan A.
John was very thorough and spent a lot of time explaining the issues with the home as well as maintenance items I needed to be aware of. As a result of his inspection I went into the deal with eyes wide open and a good deal of bargaining chips! Thanks again!Terri M.
As a first time home buyer, I wasn’t sure what to expect for the inspection. After searching reviews, we chose John because all of his customers had such great things to say, and he sure did not disappoint! By the end of the walk-though, I felt so confident and familiar with the home. He was willing to answer any questions and demonstrated how to check many things ourselves. We joked that he must be the Mary Poppins of inspectors because he just kept pulling more and more fantastic tools out of his bag. To top it all off, he hand-delivered a detailed binder with all of his notes and suggestions and reviewed all of his findings once again. I would highly recommend John to anyone purchasing a home in the Lafayette area!Lauri M.
John was hired by us to do an inspection
We have recently started looking for a home in West Lafayette, and requested the expertise of Accurate Home Inspection. We were WOWED! John sent us lots of information on what he checks before, did a 4 hour inspection of our future home, showed everything he found, educated me during the inspection, and the binder and links he gave us after the inspection, will help us out tremendously once we are in the home to help us save us money. Stellar service, I will share you with anyone I know looking for an inspector.Michael B.
Excellent, thorough inspection! They pay attention to every, single detail that other inspectors have either missed or glossed over. John is thorough and detailed and is also detailed in his explanation to you as he is going through your house. I highly recommend Accurate Home Inspection to anybody wanting to get their home inspected by a true, ethical professional company.Iris G.
I had been smelling a natural gas smell in my dad’s basement, so I contacted John at Accurate Home Inspection to check it out. He came over, checked everything out (including places that I wouldn’t have even thought to check out) and didn’t find anything out of the normal. A couple days later, he contacted me and explained a phenomenon called “Orphaned Water Heater”, so now I’m getting that checked out. I was so impressed by his knowledge, professionalism, and the fact that he took the time to research other potential issues and get back to me. I would highly recommend Accurate Home Inspection to anyone!Krista S.
John came to our home searching for a specific problem that I was concerned about. He not only investigated the issues, he educated me on other important things that I need to be aware of and look into in the future to help avoid something major down the road. Very thorough, professional, and clearly cares about his clients. I would trust him with anyone I know and love!Lindsey B.
Thorough inspection, John is highly professional and very knowledgeable. He identified some areas for improvement in my home and made connections for me with reputable repair firms. He discussed the inspection report with me and answered all my questions. I would highly recommend his home inspection services.Sammy M.
John taught us a lot about our home and spent an hour after the inspection talking to us and answering questions.Davis D.
The inspector was very professional and gave us a lot of helpful home tips. He gave us a binder with the report and went over it with us. He said to let him know if we ever had any questions and we’ve called several times. He was always very helpful and took the time to make sure we understood his answers. I would recommend!Lisa L.
Incredible detail and thorough inspection. I have bought 7 homes in various states and have never seen a more impressive report!Bill J.
This was our second home inspection while buying a home and the experience we had using Accurate was much different than the one we had with another inspector. Our first home inspector just gave us a checklist that showed if something was acceptable or not. He said he didn’t get on roofs or into crawlspaces. The Accurate inspection was about $50 more than our previous inspection but it was so beyond what we expected. The inspector got on the roof, in the crawlspace and, the attic. He gave us an 87 page inspection report full of photos and we also got a home energy score. I’m pretty handy but John pointed out several things I wouldn’t have thought to check. When we need a third inspection we will definitely be using Accurate again.Rob F.
We decided to have a maintenance inspection after having some remodeling work done, as well as to see if our home was ready for winter. Honestly, it was the best $350 we’ve ever spent, as it probably saved us hundreds, if not thousands of dollars in the long run. Not only did the inspector find our new bathroom exhaust fan was venting improperly into the attic, he also found a gas leak on our aging furnace and flashing problems on the chimney, which was allowing water into our attic. A few days after the inspection we received a binder with the final maintenance inspection report, which was very impressive. Every step of the inspection was outlined and explained, including photos showing us all the problem areas the inspector had found while in our home. I wish our original home inspection had been like this. I remember that guy rushed through the house, cleared it and was gone in less than an hour. Accurate Home Inspection was at our home well over three hours; taking their time, being thorough and answering all of our questions as we walked through together. I wouldn’t hesitate to call Accurate again for future maintenance inspections. Definitely worth the money!Tracey R.
John showed up on time and conducted a detailed and honest assessment of our property and its components. We were impressed with the variety of tests performed and had a radon and water test with our home inspection. We were shocked to receive an email, later that evening, with the inspection report attached! A few days later we also received a print version of the report, which included the radon and water test results, in the mail. The report was very detailed and will be nice to keep as a reference for our home. Accurate offers a very thorough and efficient service. Thank you!Bob D.
Very helpful. John DeBusk was always readily available to answer questions if I had any. He was very thorough during the inspection. The best in town. I would highly recommend him to anyone!Halley S.
As a first time home buyer, I was unsure of who to turn to for an inspection. John worked tediously and efficiently to inspect every part of the house. I can say, with confidence, that I feel very good about purchasing our home.Josh D.
Being a single mother, I was very nervous about buying a home and having a home inspection. I didn’t know what to do or what questions to ask. I decided to call around and talk to the local inspectors. Several didn’t get back to me after I left messages and one seemed like I was bothering him. After speaking with John from Accurate Home Inspection, I knew I had found the inspector I wanted to use. He was on the phone with me for almost 15 minutes answering all my questions. I arrived about 10 minutes early for the scheduled inspection and he was already at the house. He greeted me and was very friendly and professional. He encouraged me to follow along on the inspection and to ask questions. I didn’t know what to ask but it didn’t matter, as we looked at each part of the house he told me what he was looking for and gave me lots of maintenance tips. When we went into the house he put covers on his shoes and even offered me some so we could keep the carpets clean. Once the inspection was finished, he gave me a quick summary and said he would email me the actual report in a few hours. The report contained lots of pictures of the house and was very easy to read. The next day he brought me a binder that contained the report, a home maintenance book (which since I’m not married, I love) and it even contained some coloring pages for my son. I’ll definitely be telling my friends about John and his service!Amy T.
Great inspector, John inspected my newly bought home and also reinspected the repairs. He did an amazing job and gave me a detailed report. Recommend him to anyone.Andy S.
Accurate Home Inspections did a great job for me. The inspection was thorough and priced fairly. Thanks John.Elijah W.
I had a great experience with Accurate Home Inspection. The inspection was thorough and put in a binder for easy access and presentation. I would recommend Accurate Home Inspection to anyone who needs a home inspection.Andrew K.
We had heard of John and his business through some of his satisfied clients. I called him on a Tuesday evening for advice on a plumbing problem we were experiencing. He came over the following morning to take a look at the problem. His service was amazing. He was able to locate the issue within minutes. In addition he suited up and crawled through the crawl space to check out all angles. John was polite and professional. I would highly recommend this business.Clint H.
John DeBusk is very professional & extra thorough. And takes time to answer all our questions. He offers a great service to homeowners & to home buyers. We highly recommend his services.Jan R.
