"He talked to me about if I needed any significant, specific work done due to flooding, and it turns out that we didn’t need any work. I definitely appreciate" his integrity. Unlike other engineers that wouldn’t even have a conversation without agreeing to have work done, he was very willing to discuss any potential problems. The interaction was very personable and consultative rather than a sales call.

" was very responsive. I left him a voicemail and submitted a request on his website. He responded back to me promptly and asked me the right" questions (whether I'll buy to live or invest). He reached out to my realtor to ensure everything will be in order for the inspection. We weren't able to get the water or heating running, but that was expected as this is a winterized bank-owned property. On the day of inspection, he arrived early. He looked at mold, termite, asbestos, roof, structure, water damage, insulation, flooring, ceilings, electric boards and outlets, exterior, and so on. He was very thorough and he gave me a full rundown of what to expect. He even noticed some things which were missed by my contractor. He sent me the report with pictures of the issues we found. The report was detailed and included some suggestions. He kept it very professional when making suggestions so he won't sway me to some direction and create a conflict of interest. I believe the fee is reasonable for both home inspection and termite inspection (~325 + ~60) coming to $385 overall price. I'm very satisfied and sure to select him again for my future investments. I'll also refer him to people I know.

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.

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.

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.

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!!!

The overall experience went well. Two inspectors (pat and ) showed up on time (actually, a few minutes early). Both were extremely pleasant and seemed very knowledgeable. They took the time to answer all our questions and provided us with good tips. They did a very thorough inspection. I truly recommend them (even though the ...More receptionist was not so friendly).

Arriving on time, the inspector proved both amiable and very knowledgeable in the various facets of home construction and equipment. He appeared to be very thorough as he proceeded along, taking time to examine even relatively mundane items that could prove troublesome. As we accompanied him around, he patiently and articulately explained what he was ...More doing and why, and what the implications could be if anything was not sound. Importantly, he detected structural deficiencies in the two large decks that were of such severity as to call for razing/rebuilding. And he supported our suspicions that the basement was infested with mold, conducting a test that eventually proved positive. Consequently, the homeowners had to spend thousands of dollars to remediate the problem. Finishing up, the inspector gave us a useful Home Maintenance Manual in a looseleaf folder, and warmly invited us to call him, through the company, if he could be of help in any way.

The owner performed the inspection and was very friendly, professional and knowledgeable. The inspection was thorough and there was plenty of time to ask questions. Would definitely recommend. I used a $15 coupon from Angie's list and had no problems with them honoring that.
