were very efficient and thorough peering and inspecting every nook and cranny of a potential property" that I was interested in purchasing. The recommended fixes were suggested in specific areas and did not dissuade me from my purchase. Very happy with this company! This was the second insertion that they have performed for me.

"I simply cannot recommend

due to the number of issues that he overlooked in his inspection. Within just a few" weeks after the inspection we discovered a massive leak through the chimney, an AC with leaking freon and rotten wood indicative of a water leak under the sink. These repairs have cost us about $4,000 so far and
made no note of these issues. Both the roof and the AC contractors were surprised that the inspector would overlook such obvious issues. Communicating with

posting blatant
in a public forum. We did not ask for a re-inspection as he states. The leak in question caused rotten wood underneath the sink going all the way down to the rafters in the basement.
made no note of this. In hindsight it is glaringly obvious. It seems the owners of the house fooled him by covering up the rotten wood with a few bottles of cleaning products deftly placed under the sink. While it was in fact too cold to inspect the performance of the AC, he failed to notice frayed wires connecting the unit to the house--the very first thing the AC contractor pointed out. He estimated a repair for the chimney at $500. We had five firms come out to give estimates and the work finally cost $3,700. That is a major mistake on
's part in my opinion. Oh and guess what--in the last few hours the AC has begun leaking from the condenser--an entirely new issue! His firm is internet savvy and has a great web presence, but don't let this fool you. Being internet savvy doesn't make up for shoddy work. He will no doubt respond to this review in a manner of minutes in order to keep a good web presence.

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.

Finding lenders, real estate agents, home inspectors and other professionals you can trust is an important first step in buying a house. Here's how to do it.

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

Is home ownership still the ultimate American dream?

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!!!

once contacted, the inspector came out and get a very thorough job. All of the efficiencies were noted and a very thorough report was generated. He was a good negotiating tool with the seller.

We have used Bill Dare and his assistant,
Philadelphia Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
, twice. Both times the inspection has been thorough and professional, with Bill catching things that were obscure and potentially costly. We have used a different home inspector before, so we know that Bill is exceptional. He welcomes questions about the home, and is clear in his findings as to their category and difficulty/cost to fix (e.g., "this is a safety thing and should be done as soon as possible; likely to cost in the range of $1,500-$2,000"). Furthermore, he gives tips for how to maintain the home as he walks you through it. We were so impressed with Bill the first time we used him that his availability factored into our contingency period this time around! I highly recommend him.

My agent discovered a leak coming from the pilot house.
Philadelphia Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
was able to show with thermal imaging how much the water had cooled the surrounding area behind the drywall which basically revealed the amount of water penetration. Overall, I was satisfied that we were able to avoid buying a lemon, but to be truly honest, I was never happy with
Philadelphia Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
's demeanor. I hired him over the phone because his rate was the best. He seemed irritable and uptight. I understand that he has an eye for detail and is experienced at what he does, but that's no excuse for what seems to be a poor bedside manner. We decided not to use him again.
The company is rated a C+ by the BBB. http://www.bbb.org/

The owner forgot to leave the keys and we had to wait an hour to get inside the house. The inspector was patient until all was sorted. The inspection was thorough and the digital presentation of the inspection was easy to read and informative.

Home inspector thoroughly surveyed my soon-to-be new home for 2-2.5hrs. I feel as though he was informative and professional. I did notice one spot that
Philadelphia Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
did not while in the basement. The ceiling has a small, rectangular hole where knob and tube wiring is lurking, but otherwise, the process alerted me to several serious issues, some cosmetic non issues, and a few things, as a home owner, I will have to address in due time. From the first phone call until the beautifully compiled report, it was a dream working with
