"I found on Angie's List. We are buying our first home and so wanted to find a very very good Home Inspector. We booked an appointment" on their website and who owns the company, called to confirm the booking. He came to the property and spend 2/3 hours there, thoroughly inspecting all aspects and areas of the house we wanted to buy. His final report was extremely detailed and professional and left us confident that we were aware of all or any issues that the home may have, so there would be no nasty surprises. The reason I want to give an A (and if I could give him an A*, I would!), is because he went above and beyond. He helped explain various aspects of the report, and has always been available for any questions that we may have, due to our limited knowledge in this area. I can not speak more highly about and . I am extremely confident in saying that you will not be disappointing if you use them for you Home Inspection needs. Thank you and please continue the excellent work!!!

"You cannot go wrong with ABI! and have inspected two very different homes for us when we have been in escrow. Plan" to be with them for about 3 hours (for a ~1500sqft home). First they thoroughly inspected and tested pretty much EVERYTHING, then they uploaded their many high quality pictures onto one iPad and walked us through each picture giving us a summary and allowing ample time to ask and receive -understandable answers, then later that night (or next day depending on appointment schedule) they sent us the full color report with the same pictures and a complete narrative, which clearly indicated which areas were safety concerns, etc. Really NICE people too!

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.

During a home inspection, what telltale signs can you watch for that the inspector might not see?

Finding lenders, real estate agents, home inspectors and other professionals you can trust is an important first step in buying a house.

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!!! 

Home Inspection reviews in Los Angeles


( ) is a true profssional that provides a detailed anaylsis of your home. He arrived promptly and brought with him drinks, snacks and an iPad (in case the kids needed something to do during the inspection). He has literally thought of everything to make the process as smooth and efficient as possible. ...More He also delivered the highly detailed, 150 page report on the same day! If I was grading him just on this efficiency and thoughfulness he would earn high but he also delivered a tremendous report where you could clearly see his attention to detail and expertise. He left no stone unturned and showed us everything we needed to know. If I has one piece of constructive criticism I would say could do a better job distinguishing between things that are big problems and things that are minor issues but I have no doubt that big or small, he found everything. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a truely thorough snapshot of a property. Thanks for allthe hard work !
- Chris A.

We are first time home buyers and was great to work with! He was detail oriented and encouraged us follow him through the entire inspection process. He explained every area of concern and made helpful recommendations for any problem areas. This was extremely helpful when we received our written report, we understood everything ...More as we had already see the issues. is very knowledgable, professional and has given us "peace of mind" as we go through the rest of our home buying process! Would recommend to friends and family.
- Carol G.

Thorough!!! Our realtor told us it would never take the 3 hours he quoted us over the phone--but it did and I was glad! His report noted everything that might be an issue for us now and in the future. He went over the report with us in detail before he left for the day. Nothing was glossed over and he answered every question. Never made us feel ...More that we were wasting his time--which I have often felt in the past with different contractors. Made me feel SOOO much better about the 1950 house we were purchasing to live in--not that there were not condition issues, but that I knew what they were!
- Joseph M.

He arrived before I did; and was well into the work at hand. I got a complete and thorough write up. Friendly, conscientious. Would definitely use them again.
- Ray D.

He did an outstanding job in all areas. He was prompt in getting back to me when first contacted, including getting me an estimate. He scheduled a site visit in a very reasonable amount of time and on a date and time that was convenient for me. When he arrived he spent time in explaining to me and my niece, who might purchase the house, everything he ...More was doing and all of the issues that might be problems. He was very thorough in both his inspection and evaluation. He inspected all areas of the house. He was very easy to work with and communicate with, I certainly would use him again and highly recommend him to others. I have used others in other areas California and he was one of the best I have used.
- Robert K.

The money spent on 's inspections is a great investment and will save a lot of money. In the beginning, the selling agent forgot the keys to the unit. We would have had to wait another hour or more to get access; However, with the agent's permission, we were able to get the lock opened with 's ...More locksmith skills. That saved me a lot of time away from work.
The flaws discovered by provided me with the leverage to ask for credits from the seller. I would never have known that the air conditioner was not serviced for 15 years was on its last leg. He found many things that I overlooked such as a leak in the shower knobs, a cabinet board that was missing.
I would highly recommend using 's services in the future. It will be well worth your money.
- David M.

It went very well and we were extremely satisfied with 's work, honesty and professionalism. He us through each task, and we were encouraged to ask any questions which he answered sincerely. made us feel like he was working for us and no one else, and continually reminded ...More us that even if we felt overwhelmed with all the information- that he would follow up, advise us and make himself available to us for any further consultation, I will also add that he was familiar with other homes in our neighborhood and was very experienced in inspecting homes designed similar to ours which was a bonus. I would without a doubt recommend his services to anyone buying a home, especially first-time buyers like ourselves who aren't familiar with this process.
- Julien H.

was extremely thorough and knowledgeable. He was patient and essentially did the inspection twice. He initially went through every inch of the home, then went through again with us and explained every single thing. He was very helpful in educating us on what we should be looking at, potential future problems, and was very practical ...More about how to address certain issues. He was also careful to not blow things out of proportion. We feel very fortunate for the inspection did for us. It lead to further inspection of a few issues that ended up causing us to back out of our escrow. Since that experience we have been much more discerning and educated and we feel like it has made us better home buyers. We are currently in escrow again and did not hesitate to hire .
