"He was punctual and somewhat thorough. His inspection report was extremely vague and accompanied by poor resolution photos. Then there was the actual content of" the report. 1."The chimney cap is damaged or deteriorated, leaks may occur. Recommend repairs by a qualified contractor. " He never even got onto my roof, he stood on a ladder in my yard. So he only seen the chimney cap from below and about 30 ft away. 2. "Open ground, three-pronged grounding type receptacles were found. This is a safety hazard due to the risk of shock. A qualified electrician should evaluate and make repairs as necessary." This was one outlet where there was an adapter to make 2 plugs into 6, like a power strip. So he didnt test the outlet he tested the adapter. 3. "The refrigerator door handle is not securely fastened. A qualified contractor should repair as necessary." An example of the vagueness of his report. The door handle wiggled so slightly that I had never even noticed it. Luckily it took 1/2 turn with an
Wrench to fix it. But when left this vague then a buyer who doesn't know better could think the handle might be hanging on only by rusty bolts or in complete disrepair. 4. "The master bathroom with a shower does not have an exhaust fan installed. Moisture accumulation will occur and may damage the structure. Even if the bathroom has a window that opens, it likely does not provide adequate ventilation, especially during cold weather when the window is closed." My master bathroom has an exhaust fan and it works great. So I'm not sure what happened here... 5. "Batteries in all the smoke alarms should be replaced after taking occupancy, and annually in the future. "Chirping" noises emitted from smoke alarms typically indicate that batteries need replacing. Additional smoke alarms should be installed as necessary so a functioning one exists in each hallway leading to bedrooms, and in each bedroom." Another one here. 1 month ago before I listed my house I replaced every smoke detector in my home, then had them inspected. There is no "chirping". But this generalization leads a buyer to believe that there was chirping and/or missing smoke detectors when that isn't the case. 6. " The lock mechanisms on both French doors are inoperable and/or difficult to operate. A qualified contractor should evaluate and repair as necessary." Well these locks function pretty well since they were installed roughly 2 months ago. But he never specified whether they were "difficult" or "inoperable". So a buyer could think these doors will not lock at all when really they are brand new and function perfectly. Im gonna call operator error on that one. SO... On the report there were 53 items and at least 30 of them were random little bits of info like "Recommend cleaning all appliances prior to use", which is put in as a general recommendation, but could lead a buyer to believe that the appliances are dirty. The report is cluttered with all this random stuff that makes if difficult to navigate. I will however admit that he managed to unearth some actual discrepancies, but even a broken clock is right twice a day.

"Only After I moved in, I discovered that his inspection was not at all accurate--or the least bit professional- He failed to discover just how old the roof underlayment" is (sellers claimed it to be 2 years old & so too did the real estate agency)--It is more like 20 -30 years old & leaks all over-- Sellers/ and/or realtor painted over the numerous ceiling stains so inspector would not notice it. He noted no problems with the roof at all & thought it to be 2 years old... I do not think he even went on the roof at all-- Because, had he, he would have noticed LOTS of issues, which we immediately discovered the first time it rained after we moved in-- Also failed to note a huge water leak inside the stucco walls which caused the wall to buckle up & flake off after we moved in--(also painted over/covered up by sellers & probably with the realtors' knowledge & participation..) Caused by years & years of leaks inside the wall-- Also, failed to get under the house to inspect a single thing there (claimed there was "no room" to do so--yet I had a huge 6'4' man crawl under there & perform repairs later-repairs that were missed by this inspector)--Failed to note a large pine tree root that had grown into the crawl space-- Also, failed to note a disconnected (100% non-functional) AC vent under the sun room floor (or the blasts of wasted continuous cold air blowing freely under the house & leaking out through the foundation air vents--which I noticed the moment I moved in..,) Other things were missed, as well-- It is important NOT to let the realtors chose your inspectors-- However, I chose this one & regret it every day...

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!!!

I was so very happy I chose this provider. This was my very first home inspection on my own and the experience was fantastic. I did not rate the cost since I have no idea what the average is, but after the service it did not matter. I close on my new home

1, 2015 and they made this very stress free and easy for me. I was able to get scheduled immediately and the lady who scheduled the appointment was very friendly, explanatory and patient. I first chose the 5 star package but changed my mind due to my financial situation at the time. I was given no grief for this change.

was my inspector and he was not only early to the property but beat me which never happens. He was very professional, friendly and made sure I understood everything he was doing. He also had a great personality :) I highly recommend this company for your inspections needs!

I view the home inspection as an important part of the home buying process. The home was a mid 6 figure ranch style in San
Jacksonville Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
area of Jacksonville. It had been vacant for several months with no one living there. Most of the inspection went as they typically do with a few things pointed out that needed fixing. Mostly routine maintenance items. Except the flooring. The home was build in the 70's and had beautiful parkay floors that had been recently (like in the last few months) refinished.
There was one particular spot in middle of the living room floor that had a large dark spot. I specifically asked the inspector about this and he said it was likely due to a rug being in that area and preventing the wood from fading. I didn't buy it because this room could not ever get direct sunlight and the shape of the spot was not uniform. I didn't suspect anything wrong but it just didn't seem right. He made no attempt at further inspection of the wood or flooring.
We accepted the inspection and proceeded to close on the house. Two weeks prior to close, about a month after the inspection and past the time to back out without losing our earnest money, I had a flooring contractor come out for a different reason. I wanted to get a head start on updating another room with wood flooring. The contractor told me they could not install any wood flooring because there was a serious moisture problem in the house coming through the slab. He showed me the moisture readings in person on his detection device. The readings were the highest around the spot referenced earlier.
I called

and
Jacksonville Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
himself came out. I had the realtor and the flooring contractor present to avoid he said, she said. The realtor confirmed we questioned the inspector about the spot. The contractor showed everyone the moisture problems in the flooring.
Jacksonville Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
denied all of it. Would not accept any responsibility for his inspector. He told us all that he "guaranteed" there was no slab leak and in his 30 years experience there was no moisture problem. I asked for that in writing and he declined to do that.

only offered to refund my inspection fee IF i would sign away any liability for their inspection. I can't do the conversation justice on this review but Mr.
Jacksonville Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
was disrespectful and his demeanor was a mix of used car salesman and politician. Would never answer any questions with a yes or no. Would take no responsibility for his inspectors lack of follow thru. The realtor and contractor both said they had never seen anyone in this line of work behave in such an unprofessional manner. He was so belligerent we actually had to ask him to leave the property.
The problem now was this. I loved the home and would have bought it anyway. BUT I have now lost all negotiating leverage as we were past the point of accepting the inspection. So I could
Jacksonville Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
$10k of earnest money or risk an unknown amount on repairs. Once the seller is made aware of an issue at an inspection they must disclose this to future buyers so there is some motivation to fix or negotiate the problem. I PAID for the inspection for this very purpose. To find potential problems with the home so we could work with the seller to fix before buying.
Fast forward 3 months. All moved and one day we see a small spot of water about the size of a quarter on the floor. Plumber scopes the drain and sure enough we have a broken/collapsed sewer pipe under the house. Had to rip up the floors in 3 rooms and a hallway (which had new tile we installed a month prior). Obviously had to replace the flooring as well. Cost me $25,000.
It was very clear to me that
Jacksonville Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
likes to have a grand public persona. His ego and opinion of himself are much more important that standing behind his work or that of his company. The inspectors working for him may very well be qualified and good at what they do. However, IF you have a problem and they make a mistake, you cannot count on them making it right or admitting any fault.

It is not my first home inspection, i have something to compare with. this inspector did a fair job checking everything, and making the pictures. however, I felt that I was not giving professional opinion to some of my questions and he was kind of avoiding my questions. He made me feel that i have to step aside and don't bother him as he is working. That was a little disappointment because I was hoping to learn more about the house during the inspection. But when I got the report I was even more unhappy because the report was making sounds like everything is in the accordance with the age and some important and costly potential repairs , as damaged AC unit was not even mention as a major problem. Some other issue that from my experience, other inspectors would highlight as hazardous and dangerous , were mentioned as the minor problems. More, everything were marked with the question
Jacksonville Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
. That means that he is not even sure that these are the problems. For the money that this company charged and for the time that the inspector spend in the house, any home buyer would expect much stronger report. I have sent email to the inspector raising my concern, he did not reply. After few attempts I got him on the phone, and he said that he will change the report and of course , he did not. I would NOT recommend this inspector and the company to any homebuyer.

I am not high on these people, they were not very professional at all. They're like Craigslist quality. They came out and did the inspection, told me that there needed to be traps and then get the openings sealed. It was going to be an additional $800, so I went ahead and paid to get that done and they said they would be back in a week to get the traps and seal the openings. My wife had to take off work to wait and they never showed up. When she called the receptionist said that she didn't know about the appointment. My wife spoke with the technician and he hung up on her. When I called him back he wasn't helpful and kept giving me the run around. I keep calling them and no one will answer our calls now. These people are lacking in ethics and honesty. I am in Iraq right now and having to deal with this is uncalled for.

BJ was early to the house with one of his associates. He did a very thorough job, answered all my questions and provided his detailed inspection report on time. When I scheduled him to come out, his office also offered to arrange for the WDO inspection through a third party. There was some miscommunication about this and BJ saw that it was cleared up and the WDO inspection took place the next day. Overall, I was very satisfied and would recommend BJ and Inside & Out Property Inspectors, Inc to anyone.

produced an organized, thorough and detailed 27 page report. He called out all the areas that need to be repaired per Florida building codes. This has made the walk through more productive and reduced the back and forth. I plan to have him return to review the repairs are done correctly. Awesome work all around and he also gave me tips on things to do to save on the Home Owners Insurance costs.

He was very polite but he told me all these things were wrong with the house and after a lot of money spent he was not completely accurate.
** just a note - I do not remember when I used his services because it has been some time so I just picked a date. That is also true for how much it cost.
