" is awesome. Really that's all that needs to be said, but I'll be more specific. I've used his services 3 times and was on" site with him for 2 (possibly all 3). He is incredibly thorough, but very efficient. we backed out of some houses with some issues due to his thorough reports. Can't say enough good things.

"The inspection was somewhat thorough but we felt like the price kept increasing. For example, there was a small guest house for which they charged - and brought" - and additional inspector, citing two homes on the property. One inspector was senior to the other and spoke to him in a condescending way in front of me. Ironically, the senior inspector often disregarded my questions, while the more junior inspector took time to answer them all and make sure I was satisfied. I also felt like the senior inspector was in a hurry to leave, but the junior inspector wanted to make sure all my concerns were assuaged before he departed.

home inspection, buy a house

Home Inspection

If you're preparing to buy a house, 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, as well as present and potential dangers. But remember, a home inspection is not a guarantee or a warranty - it may not find everything.

It's up to you to discover what potential dangers lurk near your new home.

Before you hire a home inspector, ask if he or she takes continuing education classes.

Follow the rules or risk paying the price – that’s especially true when planning a home improvement project – big or small. You want to be certain all the work being done on your home is up to code. If you don’t, it could cost you.

Dear Angie: My 32-year-old house needs so much maintenance and updating, it’s difficult to know where to begin. Are there any consultant services available to address this need? – Lou R., Murrysville, Pa.

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 thorough with his inspection. He addressed every area that you would expect a home inspector to inspect. He provided a detailed verbal summary to us at the end of the inspection. Just a few hour later, he emailed us the detailed list of items addressed along with photos of every part of the house he inspected. I ...More would definitely use for any future home inspection. was also extremely pleasant to spend the morning with.

was incredibly responsive and professional. We used him twice - the first time he discovered major issues with a home we'd fallen in love with, so he saved us getting into what would likely have been a true Money Pit!
The second time we sent an email at 10PM asking when he could do the inspection, ...More and he responded within an hour that he had one open slot this week -- the next afternoon. By being so "on top of it," we were able to jump right in and get the rest of the process under way within the day.
's specific findings also that true rarity, an inspector who really knows what he's looking for, based on understanding a broad range of how stuff is built and really works, and what to be on the lookout for. Many inspectors do a more superficial job - is the genuine article.

From the first call I was impressed with the helpfulness of . The woman who answered the phone was polite and helpful; answering all of my questions and letting me know the best inspection for my home. arrived on time for my inspection and throughly inspected the property. He also answered my questions ...More 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!

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) ...More 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.

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 ...More 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 ...More 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 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 ...More 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.

did a thorough and professional job inspecting our condo and promptly completing his report.

He did not rush or . found the house to be ...More well-maintained overall, but also spotted things we'd not noticed, facilitated our setting priorities for repairs and ongoing preventive measures, and provided useful context for how various building and repair standards and practices have changed over time.
