When shopping for a Home Inspector, your "FIRST TWO QUESTIONS" should be "How many years have you been in business as a Home Inspector and how many hours do your inspections take."
If the answer given to either question is 3 or less, you should keep shopping unless you're only concerned about price. Green - aka "newer inexperienced" inspectors will have the lower prices, this is how they get business.
