"Report lacked vital details including structural issues that were plainly visible to the eye of all contractors who we have had come to our house since the inspection" was performed. It will cost thousands to fix the various issues that cannot be ignored. We have tried to appeal to this company with the help of our lawyer,but so far we have not gotten a satisfactory reply.

"I contacted
Boleman following recommendations from a friend and reading reviews on Angie's List.
was prompt" and professional. He inspected an older home I was considering buying. He had both work and personal experience with older homes which was very valuable during this inspection.
was VERY thorough and took over 2 hours with the house, going from top to bottom and an additional 45 minutes or more talking with me about the findings. I greatly appreciated his time and expertise about the home and its 'needs'. I felt like he provided a very thorough and balanced overview of the findings which allowed me to weigh the pros and cons of purchasing. I found the process easy, staff professional, and the service prompt and thorough.

Home inspection

For most of us, our home is the biggest investment we will ever make. For those preparing to buy, a quality home inspection is key. An inspection is usually required for a home purchase. A highly rated home inspector will look at every nook and cranny to gauge structure stability, present and potential dangers. But remember, a home inspection is not a guarantee or a warranty - it may not find everything.

Experts say a push for energy efficiency carries a cost to human health, in some cases, like when sealed houses exacerbate asthma. How to go green and be well.

Being at the home inspection allows you to see your "dream home" from the inspector's unbiased viewpoint, says Sherwood. (Photo courtesy of Angie's List member Diwata F. of Buffalo, New York)

You may never believe the things a home inspector will discover unless you're there, too. Being at your home inspection lets you see any problems firsthand.

Bathroom exhaust fans are installed to remove moisture from the bathroom to the exterior of the home. If yours isn't working, don't ignore the problem.

It really depends on where you are and the type of work.  In Texas most home inspectors are only trained in general areas of interest and have no detailed knowledge of construction practices.  Some do after having carrerrs in other fields including engineering or as general contractors/home builders.  If you are wondering if a completed job was done in a professional manner appearance wise and have minor concerns an inspector can help you.  If it is more extensive hire professionals from the different fields to inspect the respective work.  Plumber for the plumbing, electrician for electrical, etc.  An experienced GC or inspector can do an initial inspection and advise you whether you should have the concerns further investigated by the trades.  Remember, they can't tell much about what they can't see so framing and insulation concerns will be hard to verify.

It's a little unusual to do this except in cases of fixer-upper properties but you should call a local general contractor with experience renovating/remodeling homes in the neighborhood.  They'll know the typical problems with the homes there and what to look out & budget for.  For example, here in San Antonio many of the homes built in the mid-fifties to 60's have lead drains that were not put in properly or were installed in such a way that repairs are not quick or cheap.  Many homes even older have the same drains but seem to be less hassle to repair.  Homes in my neighborhood have a problem with improper supply lines (wrong type of copper) which break due to corrosion.  Just make sure the contractor you hire to go over the property with you has done significant work on homes in the area on similar homes.

Are the heat pumps commercial or residential units?
Are the heat pumps Package or Split System?
Are there actually 33 PTAC units?
Are you an EPA certified person( refrigerant )?

Here is my suggestion, break it down into manageable portions(ie one heat pump and a few PTAC units every other month) to keep from being overloaded.  
Clean/Replace filters
Check/inspect electrical wiring and connections
Check amperage draw of compressors/motors 
Check capacitance of start and run capacitors
Check contractors/relays for wear/pitting
Check refrigerant levels and record superheated/subcooling
Check external static pressures across air handler(s)
Check deltaT (return and supply air temps) 
Lubricate motors( if applicable)
Inspect Belts/Pulleys( if applicable)
Clean outdoor coils
Clean indoor coils

Start there and HAVE FUN!!!

was very knowledgeable and professional. He described various options and contingencies in a clear manner, showed up promptly when he said he would, efficiently installed the system we chose based on his recommendations, and cleaned up after himself. The system is very quiet and initial testing shows it is working effectively. We highly recommend

was great.
He provided good information when he came out the first time. I was provided the different options for my house including the possible problems that can be encountered.
The area was in a snow storm the day he was supposed to come work, and he notified me in advance that it was unlikely he would be able to make our appointment. He came in anyway after the roads turned out to not be as bad as predicted.
During the install we discussed potential paths for routing the exhaust pipe, and his assistant provided the best idea which we ended up going with. I was very happy with the engagement on the issue which would have an effect on my use of the garage.
Overall I was very pleased. He was professional the entire time and I would easily recommend him to anyone.

The review went great, and I tagged along with

called in advance and said he'd be late due to a previous inspection at another home that took longer than originally planned. Once here,he gave dozens of tips on improving our indoor air quality, conserving energy, saving money, and preventing insect intrusions.
Asheville  Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
prioritized action items, the vast majority of which are straightforward enough for me to implement myself. It was frankly surprising how many things were not as good as they could be in our 6-year-old home! We will probably invest in a duct-cleaning service, but other than that, for now all projects are either free or low cost with a trip to a local home improvement store. I have already implemented a few of his suggestions, and I have a nice to-do list for this weekend. :)
I strongly recommend

came highly recommended from two different friends. He showed up on time, spent a long time doing the inspection and then explained everything he found wrong or questionable in great detail. He also explained how lots of the mechanicals worked, which was worth the value of the inspection by itself. He clearly is very knowledgeable about a wide range of issues and gave me a high level of confidence that I knew what I needed to know to negotiate with the seller on what would be fixed prior to my purchase. He's also very personable and explained things in an easy to understand way. He was also clear on what was important to fix and what was a "nice to have done". Great guy. I trust

and recommend them highly. He also did a radon test, which is priced separately.

was responsive via e-mail, and on time to our appointment. From the exterior to the interior, the crawl space to the attic, he inspected every joist and rafter. The crawl space was very tight and cobwebbed and dirty, but
Asheville  Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
donned his suit and crawled the entire space. He probed and found weak and damaged areas and photographed problem areas as well. Our impression of the inspection process was very positive. He also took time to explain some details while onsite.
The report arrived via e-mail within 24 hours.
The report was extremely detailed. He pointed out problems and possible solutions to each area, supported by pictures and commentary.
If you are a buyer of a home or investment property looking for thorough and detailed inspection
Asheville  Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
is THE ONE. Over the past 20 years I have used 6 home inspectors and he has been the most thorough of all. The fee is a bargain given the negotiating power of the report, as well as the ability to stay away from problems that will be too much to handle.
