"After mutual acceptance of the offer that I made to purchase a house in North Seattle, I knew I had only a short time to do the home inspection. It's very" important for me to personally be present during the inspection so I can hear first hand what the inspector finds and because of my work schedule, I was only available for the next 3 days. I decided to call at and this was on a Friday, close to 4pm. He picked up the phone himself and was able to schedule me in for the next day! He showed up on time, was very courteous and professional from the get go. I learned a great deal about the house from the walk through with him as well as from his very organized report (with lots of photos) which arrived a day later, as promised. I would highly recommend and his business to future home buyers.

"After living in an apartment/condo for 20 years buying a residential house was a daunting task when it came to knowing what to look for in inspections. " was amazing to work with giving very clear direction on what to look for and walking us through what were risks and ensuring we had a good level of comfort. was prompt, extremely thorough, provided an excellent written report and a lot of great advice. I wouldn't ever consider buying another house without contacting .

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.

roof inspection

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!!!

came and did a pre-inspection for two homes for us. He walked through the entire home with us -outdoors, indoors, roof, attic, etc. He was super professional, knowledgeable and helpful. This was out first home purchase and he was super informative and helpful with all kinds of things! We would highly recommend .

The inspection went very well and they were more than professional and this was actually the 2nd time we have used them as we liked their service so much. They accomplished the inspection with a team of 3, which helped as they had plenty of time to answer all my questions as we were walking around the home. They were also very good at pointing out ...More issues as they found them during the inspection which gave me plenty of opportunity to answer more questions. was very helpful in explaining options for fixing the issues and timelines they needed to be addressed which allowed me to make a project plan for the home. One of our favorite parts was the report they provide at the end which highlights everything we went over during the inspection and more. The price was higher than desired but consistent with other inspectors we shopped around with. Overall, we would go with them again if an inspection was needed.

Detailed inspection uncovered some lower cost but critical problems previously unknown to owner. and team pointed out defects, offered suggestions on how to remedy. Followed up with thorough report, ranking and highlighting defects. Highly recommend this company.

The home that was inspected is a 3000 sq ft home with 2 floors and a basement, built in 1925.
We wanted to get a pre-inspection done before putting down an offer for the house especially because it was built so long ago and we wanted confidence in what we're getting. Both and were at the pre-inspection. ...More They each spent 45 minutes looking through the big items of the home, including roof, furnace, water heater, electrical, siding, structural, etc. We also specifically asked them to check if there were possible problems for the basement, since it was partially finished and we wanted to finish the rest of it. They were very knowledgeable and found some issues in the pre-inspection which we took note of. They do not produce reports for pre-inspections but they explained all items they found to us so we understand what we'd need to address if we plan to purchase the home. The pre-inspection costed $295. We put down our offer on the home based on this information.
After our offer was accepted, we hired them again to do the full inspection. was in charge of this one and spent around 1 hour 30 minutes on the inspection, touching on the items that they didn't get to in the pre-inspection. He found several more minor problems in the full inspection, but nothing major when compared to the pre-inspection. Two days later, he sent us a thorough report of 29 pages, consisting of all the information from both pre-inspection and full inspection. It had pictures on areas of concern, it outlines important information about each area of the home, it specifically action items he recommends us to do. There are parts of the house they were not able to inspect, and this was also mentioned in the report. Specifically they could not do a detailed inspection of the foundation due to limited access and they cannot do an invasive inspection. The full inspection costed $470.
Overall we are very happy with their services. They were knowledgeable, professional, and always punctual (in both inspections, they arrived before us and were already working)

inspected two homes for us. In both cases, we greatly appreciated the matter-of-fact feedback he gave us. was very thorough, and helped us effectively identify the key issues that we need to watch out for. At the same time, he was able to advise us (first-time owners) about which issues were major vs. ...More relatively minor. All his inputs were captured in a well-documented report, another great feature of his service. Last but not least, has been very open to providing offline feedback and advice as we think about how to maintain our new home. We would highly recommend to buyers who want an honest and reliable opinion on a home they are looking to purchase (vs. relying on inspectors recommended by agents).

arrived early and finished the exterior inspection before we arrived, so he saved us time. He went through the problems and explained them carefully in person. And his report is detailed and including many pictures to show exactly what the problems look like. My impression is that he has a lot of experience and did a thorough ...More job. I was happy with his service and will hire him again.

we've used and his team for several home inspections and trust his attention to detail and professionalism. we've also had other full or pre inspections and none have compared to and his crew. The time is used efficiently, it's enjoyable working together, it's very educational and he ...More takes time to help you understand the issues thoroughly. The written report is also well documented with annotations and pictures. Best of all the report comes same day and you can easily reach them by phone or email. Highly recommended!
