THEY CALL HIM SHERLOCK “HOMES”

Home Inspector Tom Morgan specializes in
searching out problems with old homes.

   The website for Sound Home Inspections, LLC (www.soundhomeinpections.com) describes owner Tom Morgan as “a Connecticut native who is familiar with and sensitive to the condition of New England’s old homes.” Tom Morgan’s family in New London goes back to a land grant from the King of England.

   Morgan, who has an MBA from the University of New Haven, was a building contractor before his bent for problem solving led him to become a home inspector. In the twenty years since he started Sound Home Inspections, Morgan has inspected over 5,000 residential and commercial buildings of all ages. He has earned a reputation as one of the most capable home inspectors in New England. He has served as treasurer and on the Board of Directors of the Connecticut chapter of the American Society of Home Inspectors. Old homes are his specialty; Tom has attended the Historic Preservation Institute at Windsor Vermont and has a strong continuing interest in saving what’s left of Connecticut’s architectural heritage. One satisfied customer wrote Tom: “You are truly an old house’s best advocate.”

   Sound Home Inspections could be a bigger company if Tom Morgan was open to hiring and training assistants, but he isn’t.  If you call Sound Home Inspections, it’s Tom that shows up to do the job, bringing along with him a state of the art reporting system that provides the customer with a summary and/or full report on site immediately following the inspection. There is no waiting to have the report written up: it is complete before Tom leaves the inspection site.  It was article in the New London DAY by Richard Norman that dubbed Tom Morgan Sherlock “Homes.”  Norman quotes Mike Russo of Elizabeth Athan Real Estate in New London: “I’ve never seen Tom Morgan without cobwebs in his hair.”
When we asked Tom for a few basic recommendations for readers who were thinking of buying an old house, he came up with four “musts”:

  1. Test for radon and asbestos
  2. Take water samples
  3. Check for termites
  4. Inspect septic tanks

   Tom can do all four. “Environment is a bigger factor all the time,” he told us. “A home inspector has to keep up with it or he might be putting the new homeowner at risk for real trouble.”
