arrived on time for my inspection and throughly inspected the property. He also answered my questions during and after the inspection. He was able to let me know concerns in the property I was purchasing and gave recommendations on further actions to remedy the concerns. My report was emailed to me the next day! I was so happy with the promptness and professionalism of this company.

"This was done at least 6 months ago but I never did the review. The great service still applies. I am a realtor and my clients had trouble finding an inspector" to come out before the option period was over. I went to Angie's list and found
with great reviews. The inspector (who's name I have completely forgotten) made himself available on his day off and came down and did a great job. He was on time, professional and did a nice report.

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.

What is a home inspection and is it worth it?

Angie's Answers

?
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!!!

Very easy to schedule online. The inspection was very thorough and report was easily laid out for me and builder to manage all the repairs. Just think that because my house had no major issues, the price tag for a 4 hour inspection at $600 is a bit high. But, you are paying for a top notch inspector like

, so at the end seemed worth it. And it is worth the peace of mind.

The inspection detailed a variety of things but it also neglected to specify items that have now tallied more than $6,000 worth of inoperable equipment and repairs. For starters, the house has 2 dishwashers. In their report they said they were operable and did a full cycle. That turns out to be impossible as both dishwasher's heating elements are rusted and non-functioning, and one dishwasher has a 2inch diameter hole in the floor of the inside of the dishwasher! In addition, the racks on the dishwashers are rusted out, so we now need to buy 2 new dishwashers! Next we found out that the house had several propane leaks, including 1 that was evident by smell. Both of these items were not disclosed on our report. The worst part of this is that we have called their office numerous times to discuss this with them and after 2 weeks, we are still waiting to use them.
Had we known that these 2 additional issues to be addressed, we could have asked the seller to deduct them from the price of the house or fix them! Save yourself the trouble, DO NOT HIRE THIS COMPANY!!!! By not getting back to us regarding our complaint, they clearly show that they do not stand by their work!!!

This is the second time we have used
Austin Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
for a home inspection. The first time was four years ago. We hired him to do an inspection on our new home just before the one-year builders warranty was set to expire. He was quick, responsive and through. His inspection caught things that we were able to get the builder to fix while still under warranty. Very good money spent! Most recently, we called

to do an inspection for us on an older home we are purchasing. Again, he was very quick and responsive. Came our right away and did a good inspection for us. We appreciate his knowledge and dedication to his profession and would recommend him and use him again.

Double Check did a completely thorough job inspecting my new home. We
were really blown away at the attention to detail and quality of the
report. This isn't our first home purchase so we had an expectation of
how a home inspection should go but we were really surprised at the
difference in quality between this experience and our previous ones. I'd
wholeheartedly recommend Double Check to anyone looking to buy a home. I
feel really good about the information provided us and couldn't be happier.

This was the most thorough inspection/inspectors we have ever had. This is our 6th home purchase and we were very impressed. We will definitely be using this company in all future home purchases. They made sure to walk me through the repairs that would be needed and explain how they should be done by us or our contractor. Very very pleased with the entire experience and have already recommended them to others.

I recently used
Austin Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
for a home inspection. These guys are great! They were on time, clean, and had all the latest high tech equipment. The thermal imaging device they used gave me detailed information that was crucial in my decision to purchase this property. I received the inspection report shortly after their visit; and it was very thorough and detail oriented. These guys are professionals; I would highly recommend this company to anyone looking for the highest quality home inspection.
