"I regret the day I ever heard of this company. DO NOT TRUST THIS HOME INSPECTOR. THIS WAS A 15-25K MISTAKE after closing on this house I thought was in good condition." I feel like I should spend another $500 on another inspector because I have ZERO faith in this inspection. We have people coming over for a party next week and I'm not sure if the deck on the house was properly inspected because it sways. Something this inspector claimed was fine when I brought it to their attention! At the last minute
was not available for the scheduled inspection as promised so Joy, he later admitted was a poor replacement and had a huge learning curve when it comes to the process and dealing with people, came out to the house in his place. The first 45 minutes of the inspection is reading the fine print and filling out paperwork absolving them of any responsibility. Be CAREFUL... Because of their sloppy cookie cutter copy and paste inspection on a TEN year old Westridge Builders house they failed to properly call out the fact that the roof needed MAJOR repair and by major it needs to be completely replaced in two years or it will begin to leak. There was a class action lawsuit with the shingle manufacturer Certainteed that he later said he was aware of. My seasoned realtor did not even call this out because the report is so confusing, sloppy, and everything they inspect needs another roof, plumbing, electrical,etc. specialist so you don't know what the real problem is versus them covering their back side. The report simply stated the roof was TYPICAL to below and they recommend another inspection by a specialist because they do not know how to inspect a roof I guess - They state they do roof inspections on their website. I always thought the most important parts of a home inspection is the roof and foundation, but this company will only stand in the drive way and take a picture and suggest a roofing specialist inspect the roof AGAIN. And don't expect them to get a ladder and take a closer look, once again, as stated on their website. When I recently asked them about the roof inspection unbelievably, they said I didn't hire them to do a roof inspection! I trusted this company and this was a huge mistake I will always regret. I just don't want anyone else to go through this nightmare working with them.

"
took his time and explained the in's and out's of the house in a way I could understand. I was a first time home buyer without" much knowledge of how a home works. Not only did I get a thorough inspection, but I also learned a lot along the way. I would recommend
to anyone buying a home that wants an honest, careful, and diligent evaluation.

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.

Dear Angie: Should I hire an independent home inspector to look over a newly built tract home? — Deborah D. of Renton, Washington

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!!!

Shamrock was the first inspection company to call me back when I was trying to schedule an appointment and I'm really glad they did. Their scheduler was very pleasant and professional on the phone and they followed up with an email to confirm the appointment as well as some reference paperwork so that I'd know what to expect during the inspection.

arrived about 15 minutes early to the inspection and went right to work. He was very knowledgeable in various aspects of the home, explained things during the inspection in a way that was easy for me to understand and pointed out areas of possible concern as well as positive attributes of the home. His report was available online shortly after he completed the inspection and the report was thorough and included several photos for reference. My realtor told me that Shamrock does a lot of inspections for clients in her office and that they have a great reputation. I'm very glad I used them for my home inspection and I would definitely refer them to others.

was one of several companies recommended to me by our realtor. I decided on him based on some of what I read on his website.
Nick

was prompt for our 9:30AM appointment, even at the house before we were! I was along side him the whole time -- from atop the ladder as he inspected the roof until he finished the basement more than 3.5 hrs later. He pointed out anything that concerned him or he thought would require my attention in the future. He also noted when repairs or improvements were well done. When Nick identified an area of concern he would clearly explain what was needed, the potential ballpark figure of costs to address, and a few names of contractors whose work he approves of.
I asked a lot of questions along the way, some pretty basic, and he always answered thoroughly. At no time did it seem like he was bothered by all my questions, he encouraged them! He also answered several follow-up email questions in a very timely manner.
I received a full report only several hours after the inspection had been completed!

Nick was very professional and personable throughout the entire process. He took his time and was more than willing to talk me through process, providing helpful advice. He was willing to look at anything I pointed out and never made me feel as though I was pestering him with questions and/or potential concerns. Nick thoroughness provided us with the adequate information to negotiate with the sellers, so that the process was painless for all parties. This is our first home and we did not use a realtor. The information detailed in the home inspection allowed us to be clear about our expectations to cure to the owners. Overall, it was evident that Nick was looking out for us, making sure we knew potential pitfalls as well as planning for future repairs. He is a wonderful resource beyond providing the home inspection, making his services that much more valuable.
