"
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 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,
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!

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.

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!!!

The work was completed in a satisfactory manner appropriate for the home.
Portland Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
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 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 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.

This company could not be worse. I bought the Radon Testing Kit for residential use at Home Depot. I followed the instructions for use and sent it into
Portland Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
with the $30.00 fee. That's where the nightmare began. I hadn't heard from them in about 2 weeks, so I looked them up online and called the phone number provided. I called no less than ten times and no one ever answered or returned the messages I sent. After that, I got an email saying that the test vials were received too late could not be analyzed and they would send replacements. I waited 10 days and still had not received anything. I replied to the email and said someone please call me regarding this issue or I would need to contact the BBB. They replied go ahead and report to the BBB. So I did. Later in the week someone finally called me and said they would transfer me to a customer service agent and again got a voice message. I never received a refund or replacements. This is a total scam operation and I cannot figure out why retail suppliers like Home Depot are still carrying this product as it is fraudulent.

We were completely shocked by the extent of the damage the previous owner(s) had done to the house and were trying to hide. Luckily

found everything wrong with the house. We have done quite a bit of renovations to the home in the year we have owned it and have found no surprises so far. He was friendly, prompt, and when he did not feel comfortable giving us final word on something he recommended great people to look further into the problem. We ended up finding a

performed the home inspection and he was very professional, polite, punctual and thorough. His report was clear and very easy to understand. It is because of his report that we had an electrician and an HVAC technician do follow up inspections and ultimately ended up getting us a credit back in the sale that more than paid for the home inspecting 10 times over.
