Home Inspections in Nashua, NH
My name is Wayne Czybora. I started Bonafide Home Inspections back in 1994 with the goal of providing a superior home inspection so homebuyers can feel good about moving into their new home. Prior to that, I was an exterminator for 7 years and have retained my pest license ever since. This experience comes in handy when looking for signs of insect damage, as insects can cause significant damage to a house. It is highly unlikely that you will find another home inspector with that much experience in pest control (if any at all) along with that much experience in home inspections. Now, I'm not just talking about having a pest license. I'm talking about having the actual experience as an exterminator. Anyone can get a pest license.
If you want to find some of the best home inspectors in MA and NH, you really need to do some research. There's nothing worse than moving into a house and then realizing that you need to sink $20,000 into it right away, all because of an incompetent home inspector.
First, go to the State's Board of Home Inspectors' website and make sure the inspector's license is still valid. Second, check the inspector out at the Better Business Bureau. Check for complaints and read any reviews that may be posted. And don't just go for the cheapest home inspector. In this business, oftentimes you generally get what you pay for. Whatever you're spending for that house, it's a lot of money and searching for a home inspector with a “bargain hunter's” mentality is definitely not the right approach. Hope to hear from you soon.
Introduction to Nashua, New Hampshire
Nashua is located in Hillsborough County. It was twice named “Best Place to Live in America” by Money Magazine. It developed around the previously thriving textile industry. The downtown serves as the region’s commercial and entertainment center. Citizens of Massachusetts are attracted to the shopping centers of Nashua such as the Pheasant Lane Mall due to New Hampshire not having a sales tax.

The region had earlier been a part of Massachusetts. The state of New Hampshire separated from Massachusetts in 1741 and Dunstable (now Nashua) was incorporated in 1746.
