"We have a rental house that we get inspected every 2 to 3 years, just to be able to stay ahead of any possible issues. we've used Apex for years and are always" extremely pleased with their work. They're knowledge, professional, and full of great tips on how to keep the house well maintained. I'd highly recommend them!

"Because bedbugs had definitely been sighted in the hallway, we were so relieved that they had no spread. and were" both professional as could be. They arrived right on time, and were thorough in what they did. He also answered a lot of our questions and gave us much information about bedbugs, their spread, habits, prevention of spread, etc. The following day, the property management company brought in its own pest control person. I was there to watch him at work. His inspection was a "lick and a promise", compared to what did. And I am speaking of just what did. He turned over furniture and cushions and was slow and thorough in his inspection. The other service was way more perfunctory in their inspection. And then, with , there was inspecting as well, giving us, essentially, a double inspection. As I mentioned, inspected two cars that had been possibly infected with bedbugs. Without ,'s inspection, there is NO WAY that anyone could visually inspect all the cracks and crevices in a cars -- finding nothing in the two cars gave us total peace of mind. Lastly, inspected all our purses and backpacks: another area that it would have been impossible to fully inspect visually. I recommend this service HIGHLY!

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.

It's up to you to discover what potential dangers lurk near your new home.

Before you hire a home inspector, ask if he or she takes continuing education classes.

Follow the rules or risk paying the price – that’s especially true when planning a home improvement project – big or small. You want to be certain all the work being done on your home is up to code. If you don’t, it could cost you.

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.

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.

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.

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 Portland

was rude and unprofessional to my partner and I from the beginning which should have been my first clue not to use his services.
did inspections on a duplex that I ended up purchasing and somehow missed inspecting some very important water damage to the sub-floor that wasn't disclosed to us ...More when we purchased the property.
I found his inspection report to be sloppy, sparse and not detailed at all. In fact, our appraisal was so much more informative compared to what provided us, which was much more revealing in describing the actual condition of the house.
I contacted first before resorting to social media for a review, but he was quick to tell me he couldn't do anything for me. That's fine, I work in real estate and will highly recommend against using his services to my friends and clients...

was very thorough, spent almost 5 hours at our place, while even giving us a discounted rate in the end, because we didn't need the report right away.
He was very amicable, patient in explaining and kind in manners, great to interact with. His knowledge of the ins and outs was extensive, but he admitted where his ...More limits where, which I hold in high regard.
All in all, he helped us a lot to realize where we are at and what needs to be done, he even gave us some tips and tricks on easy-to-do DIY jobs.
A strong recommendation!

He ran the washing machine as part of the inspection, which is unusual. Additionally, he did not check its condition and ran it with manual, shipping bolts etc inside. He has not responded to requests to deal with potential damage caused.
Additionally, he doesn't seem to understand modern building techniques. He recommend venting a space ...More that was completely filled with spray foam (no air to vent). This would have added a penetration point for moisture and would have potentially created problems.
He also doesn't seem to understand that people treat crawl spaces in multiple ways these days, he only recommends a vented space, whereas spaces can be vented, conditioned, sealed etc.
Doesn't appear to keep up with current building science.

was prompt, enthusiastic, knowledgeable and thorough! He welcomed our questions and told us much about the quality of our house's systems as well as the quality of the materials used in remodeling. He showed us how to operate things. The inspection report helped us see what we should ask the sellers to take care of and ...More what we could do to make the house top-notch once we move in. This information was extremely valuable. Without hesitation, we'd recommend to others who want to know the issues with a house. 's love for what he does showed through--at the end of 3 1/2 hours, we were better informed and quite enthusiastic about moving forward. He made us really appreciate the house we are buying by showing us beneath the surface. Thanks you, !

For starters, I live 350 miles away, so I had to either really trust the inspector who I spoke to on the phone, or else I had to drive 700 miles to watch over the inspection myself. But after speaking to for a very short time, I realized that I trusted him enough to save myself the big trip. A former contractor, ...More knows his stuff and is very thorough in his approach. The process was off to a good start immediately.
scheduled the inspection quickly, arrived promptly (my agent tells me), and provided me with a 38-page PDF Inspection Report with lots of detailed photos and descriptions via email. Later, he took the time to go over the report in considerable detail with me. During this time suggested some great questions to ask not only about the property, but also about the documents. In the end, he was worth every cent of his fee and more.
Because we are buying an investment property out of town, a friend in Portland suggested Angie's List to me, and this was my first experience with the service. It kind of feels like Angie's List has already paid for itself in its first recommendation. Thumbs up to both at and the Angie's List process!

The work was completed in a satisfactory manner appropriate for the home. is very knowledgeable and gave insights to any potential problems with the home. He was willing and able to deep-dive on questions my wife and I had. Most importantly he got the inspection results back to us on the evening of the inspection. Basically it ...More was same day service. This is critical especially with the tight time frame for getting inspections completed.

encouraged us, as the buyers, to walk through the inspection with him. He was thorough and gave detailed verbal descriptions of everything he was doing and seeing. He answered all of our questions and was very patient with us.
After the inspection, he completed a hand written report that he reviewed with us. He then ...More gave us 2 copies, one for us and one for the real estate agent. He also sent photos to document his findings to our email within hours of the inspection.
