He was also able to address specific questions I had regarding different things in the property and explain and issues that may have come up.

I’m glad my husband and I chose Dean to do our inspection for our very first home. Dean is very thorough, he explained everything to us every step of the way, took his time going through the whole house and the outside of the house, and answered all of our questions. My husband and I feel more confident now going into our first home because of Dean. We definitely recommend Dean for anyone looking for a great inspector and will most definitely use Shoveltown Home Inspections again for our next home inspection.
Throughout this home buying process, Dean has been by far the shining light of it all. His openness, transparency, and support made us feel confident in our decision making and comfortable moving forward. I would work with Dean 100 times over and appreciate everything he did and will do for future clients. Couldn’t rate Dean above a 5/5 or else I’d say 6/5 because he’s that good.
Dean was very professional and applied his well above excellent inspectional skills in an outstanding manner. He explained everything even if it was a small thing that could have been ignored by anyone else. I highly recommend him.

I couldn’t be happier with the quality of this company from start to finish! The owner Dean was quick to respond to my initial inquiry, he was very kind, as well as accommodating. After scheduling the home inspection I was in contact with Jeff, the licensed inspector, immediately via email. He was very professional but also friendly and easy to work with. He was so patient and thoroughly answered all my questions about the upcoming inspection. The day of the actual home inspection he explained how the appointment would go and encourages prospective home owners to be involved. He is extremely knowledgeable and explained everything as he inspected it, he not only told us what was in need of repair, he also took the time to explain the correct way it should be (ie; drain spout should be out so many feet from the house). The whole inspection was informative and I really appreciate his time and how thorough he was. After the inspection he sent out the report promptly, stayed in touch and encouraged us to reach out if we had any questions. I cannot not say enough positive things about Jeff and Shoveltown Inspections! Thank you so much!
We hired Jeff a second time around after hiring him for a pre-offer inspection on another home. Jeff was very thorough in walking my husband and I through what he was seeing throughout the inspection and patient enough to explain every detail. His quick turnaround time with delivering the results was much appreciated. Dean, the owner, was also very responsive and prompt with scheduling the inspection. We highly recommend working with Dean and Jeff for any inspection!
WE DIG DEEPER, SO YOU SLEEP BETTER
Buying a home is the single largest purchase most people make in their lifetimes. It is important to have a thorough inspection performed by a competent, Licensed Home Inspector. Shoveltown Home Inspections is a multi inspector firm serving Eastern Massachusetts. Our inspectors have a combined 50 plus years of residential and commercial construction and real estate background. Our backgrounds include: Builders, Contractors, Remodelers, Construction Supervisor, Real Estate Salesperson, Firefighting and Carpentry Teacher. Our employment history is focused around building construction. With this background, we perform all of our inspections as if we were buying the property. Buyers are often star struck by the beautiful kitchen or living areas of the home and put little thought into the condition of the structure and systems of the home. It is our job to dig deep into the bones and systems of the house and report on their conditions. These often unseen areas are where many hidden deficiencies lurk, and it is our duty to inform our clients of these deficiencies. Whether a house is new construction or several hundred years old, most home have some issues that need to be addressed. During our inspections we verbally report our finding to our clients and document them with pictures. The following day they will receive a professional report with all our findings, including pictures and recommendations to correct any deficiencies. At this point the clients typically discuss the report and deficiencies with their real estate professional to determine the best path to address these issues. Buyers have several options: Take the house as it is, Ask sellers to make some repairs, Ask for a reduction in price or sellers concession or sometimes Walk Away. Our job is not to tell you to buy or walk. Our job is to open your eyes and show you the present condition of the property, so you can make an informed purchase decision. We are also here to answer any follow up questions. And it doesn't end there. We are always just a phone call, email or text away from any future questions you have pertaining to your house.
We look forward to the opportunity to inspect your next property.
