"This provider came highly recommended by the realtor. That should have been a red flag! He provided exactly what the realtors wanted which was an inspection that" was completedly useless. We are now more than 3 years past the jnspection date and and have uncovered many issues that should have been brought to light such as rotten pipes and radiators and erroneously listing heating system as middle age in life expectancy when it was apparently at the end of its life expectancy. Others issues missed include missing a rotting column from the house addition, an uneven foundation, the shoddy porch foundation; the list goes on. All of this resulted in thousands of dollars needing to be spent, including an oil system that had to be converted to gas.The provider's report included mainly pictures and boxes checked and had 1 sentence descriptions if any and reflected an approach that barely skimmed the surface of inspecting the house. In conclusion, the provider's lack of thoroughness resulted in our inability to negotiate better at the closing table. Additionally, the provider did not show the professionalism expected in that his verbal readout to us as clients was absent. In fact, he spoke more to the realtors, including trying to drum up business from the seller's realtor!

"I called 410-560-5938 on August 10 at 9:44 AM and the outgoing message said to call his cell phone. A minute later, I called 410-925-0436 and left a message. Never heard back from him.

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.

A home inspection can offer homeowners — not just homebuyers — expertise and peace of mind.

As a home seller, there's nothing more nerve-wracking than waiting for the results of the buyer's home inspection.

Drones make checking hard-to-reach places, such as steep roofs, much easier for home inspectors and insurance agents.

Home inspectors have a responsibility to perform their jobs without the mere appearance of a questionable relationship involving any property they inspect.

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!!!

has inspected four houses for me over the years and I wouldn't have anyone else do the job. My most recent experience was with two row houses in the same 1950s development; he took about three hours going over each of them. He is really good at finding and explaining every existing or potential problem, and discussing the ...More history of the house as he sees it in the traces of the work that has been done over the years. He tells you what to have someone else do, what you can try yourself, and leaves you with a binder of materials that allow you to set up your own to-do list, prioritized by importance, or negotiate with the sellers for work you want done in order to facilitate the sale. I've never bought a house and later found him to have missed something he should have seen.
He and his partner, , always work very hard to accommodate the sometimes tricky schedules of house buying, and are friendly, kind folks I am happy to work with.

Prior to the appointment I received a detailed overview of pricing, various inspection packages and what to expect during the inspection. On the day of the appointment the owner arrived early (bonus points for punctuality!) and ...More as we walked through the home he made sure to explain everything that he observed. Overall the inspection was very thorough and the owner did and excellent job capturing all of the details and photos in the follow up report.

's services were recommended to us by our real estate agent, and when we met , we found him friendly, honest, and knowledgeable -- and we continue to think highly of him as a person. But now that we've been living in our house for slightly more than a year, we do sometimes wish that we'd ...More worked with a different home inspector.
To be fair, it was obvious that the house would need some fixing up, and pointed out a number of things that needed to be addressed, including loose insulation in the attic, a crack on the back porch, and, most importantly, a large amount of mold inside an upstairs closet and also in the Air Handler.
However, 's report did not include mention the decay of the cement porch behind the house (at the time of 's inspection, the iron supports underneath the porch were almost entirely rusted out), or the significant damage to the basement walls caused by moisture. After we'd been in the house for a few weeks, a contractor pointed out that the lower portion of one of the basement walls was almost completely saturated with water and asked, "Didn't you have a home inspection?"
missed some other details that weren't nearly as serious -- a cracked toilet, for example -- but the fact that these details didn't make it into his report reinforces our sense that he probably wasn't as careful as he should have been.

They said I didn't need a new roof but I got a second opinion and they said I did need a new roof. I've recently purchased a new roof and I am very happy with it I'm glad I got a second opinion.

I was very pleased with my experience with . was extremely responsive to all of my pre-inspection questions, and was helped me make a decision regarding which inspection package to purchase. Everything was scheduled seamlessly and I had no issues with payment through Angie's List.
On the day ...More of the inpsection, the home inspector and the pest inspector both showed up right on time. The pest inspector showed me a few areas of concern in the basement and explained the issues in an understandable way without causing any unnecessary panic. He described in detail the services I would need to get in order to mitigate the issues he saw and gave me an estimate of cost.
was my home inspector, and he was very knowledgable about different aspects of home repair. I followed him through the whole house and he explained all of the issues he was seeing, along with common repair and maintenance issues I would have to deal with as a homeowner. He answered all of my questions (this is my first home purchase, so I had a LOT of questions) and I learned a lot by following him through the house. He also managed to find a leaky pipe by running all of the water in the house for fifteen minutes or so; the plumber who came in to do the repair could not replicate the problem just by running a faucet or two (we are getting another set of eyes on it), so I appreciate 's thoroughness.
I got my inspection reports very promptly, and and were both very accessible by email or phone after the inspection as well. The inspection reports were comprehensive and clear, but was also realistic and did not make every little fix seem like a disaster. When I needed a receipt for the inspection almost a month afterwards, emailed it to me within an hour of my request.
I'd definitely recommend these guys!

arrived early and began the outside walk around he showed me those things that were of interest or needed repair he answered my questions in a professional and informative manner. He was communicative without the patronizing attitude sometimes offered by trades people talking to . He did a very thorough ...More inspection opening every door and window checking every outlet. He explained and tested every system explaining maintenance tips that will keep them at optional performance. He didn't push for the higher cost service they offer but explained the pros and cons of both and seemed happy with my choice of the cheaper service. ( and this was before the service was provided)
I would highly recommend this provider
