"He came and was very thoroughly when I was interested in buying a property that needed more work than I was ready to put in. He gave it to me as raw as he could." He covered every inch of the home with prior knowledge of working on homes, it was informative.

-Kwame L.

"The Owner and I had not yet set a date for the basement inspection. In fact, we actually had a basement backup flood during a rainstorm and I realized that I probably" didn't need to spend $50 for an inspection to determine that I needed basement waterproofing. However, the owner showed up at my house one day as we were recovering from the backup flood damage. However, everything he told us about our basement and the recommendations that he gave us were helpful. We ended up not using his company for the waterproofing, but his consult provided us with information that we were able to use to make a more educated decision about waterproofing our basement. He was given a lower score for professionalism, because he showed up without an appointment and he appeared a little rough around the edges. No company paper, clip board, etc. (he wrote on a napkin). However, he was very informative and friendly.

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!!!

We spoke on the phone and he was able to accommodate the date for the inspection. He answered my questions when I called. I am an out of state investor so I am not able to be present at the time of inspection so my realtor and his associates will be assisting with the process. Since I'm not there most of the time to see things in person, I like ...More to make sure everything is done correctly and if there is a problem, the person/company is properly insured. I asked if he was insured and he said "yes" and assured me that he is a licensed builder for over 40 years. So I asked if I can get a copy of the insurance to make sure. He said he couldn't because it would be "too much" work. I told him, I prefer to see a copy of it to verify. Then he told me to just hire someone else because he is too busy. He said he has never been asked to provide a copy.
My thoughts are, if you are willing to go out to get insured for your work, then you should expect that any client will ask to see a copy of it. Not everyone will just take some stranger's word for it. And if you don't have one, then be up front and say you don't have one. don't tell a client you have one and then say you can't provide it. Great business practice!

with was thorough and professional. He went through all of the potential problems of the home, and submitted a report in a timely manner. We felt confident that he left no stone unturned on the inspection, and when we had a question about the city inspection a few weeks later, he was prompt and courteous ...More in helping us navigate the concerns.

arrived right on time to meet me and my family to go over a potential new home purchase. He was familiar with the neighborhood and was able to say what was normal for the neighborhood and what would cause problems in the future. He has a good background in various construction trades and asbestos and mold remediation and was ...More able to give lots of tips for future upkeep if I choose to purchase the home. I appreciate that he does free after-sale phone consults if I have other questions related to this home purchase. I'll use again in the future for investment or other home inspections.

I arrived late and was already on roof, came down and introduced himself and proceeded to do a walk around of the grounds. told me about his background and his knowledge base in a general conversational while also explaining acceptable FHA standards. After grounds ...More went over exterior of home and explaining what he saw on roof and how it may correlate to the interior. Upon entering he was able too show how roof problem affected interior. He checked all water pressure, electrical outlets, fixtures and doors for functionality. He went in attic reported lack of insulation and stated the best recourse to follow that was most cost effective. checked furnish and as he viewed heat exchangers noting problem that he was able to visually let see. and noted that it was a potential carbon monoxide problem and noted existing span life of furnish and hot water tank. From the information that gave me I was able to make a more knowledgeable evaluation of property and gain a better understanding of its cost to repair to value.The report was available with pictures on line within an hour of completion of inspection. Highly recommend and his company to anyone seeking services.

was prompt, courteous, and professional. He did a good inspection; he crawled through the attic to look for evidence of knob and tube wiring, checked for gas leaks found previous fire damage (which had been covered up with paint), and found enough damaged asbestos that we decided not to buy the house. Thanks !

When I called of Tri -County Home Inspections I was impressed by
his professionalism from the get-go. He explained in detail what his
services provided and how much it was going to cost. We arranged for a
date and time. was very punctual even though I was late. He was
very ...More understanding and we met. We went through the house together and
explained everything he saw and the relevence of the repairs. His
explanations were understandable. I appreciated the time he took to
make sure I understood everything he said. He went through every floor
and every room. He covered all aspects of the home and pointed out all
actual and potential problem. had some very helpful tips for me
and my future endevours. In the end there were no surprises and he
charged what he stated in the beginning. I enjoyed my time spent with
and would definately be using him in my future purchases. I would
recommend to anyone.

The appointment was scheduled for 11:00 a.m. and was there on time. However, I was a little late and he did not hesitate to begin the outdoor inspection. He took his time and everytime he completed a section of the house, he took time to explain the results of the inspection. The house was currently empty, but he still put ...More coverings on his feet. At the end, he debriefed me on the inspection, went over the report and explained the digital photos. When I arrived home, the photos were waiting in my email. I was told that the electricity was turned on, which it was not, and he offered to return to the home when it was turned on to perform an inspection on that part. I received a thorough written report, digital photos of concerns and eight pages of life span of home components and appliances as well as home maintenance tips and tricks. I have a problem with tree roots and have already placed a stocking containing rock salt in the toilet tank to the roots. Hope it works. even took the time to follow up with a call to make sure the photos were received and to suggest where we should look to rid the basement of carpenter bees that were present. Thanks for a job well done!
