"After the initial home inspection and 2 subsequent re-inspections, I noticed a number of items which the inspector had missed, but defended them as "cosmetic"" and outside the scope of his work. Somehow, our definitions differed when talking about a cracked bathroom sink vanity among other things. After moving into the house, I noticed even more issues, some quite blatant and serious. I had him fix one HVAC issue where a vent was blocked because it installed without an opening. The inspector and realtor seemed to focus their attention on very minor items like caulking cracks between the wall moulding, even though I did not want it addressed (the tradesman took forever and made a complete mess of a very
job). I also noticed later that his contract only provides damages up to the amount of his paid fee. Most professional inspectors set no limits as they have professional liability insurance in case they should miss anything and a problem occur.

"We could not have been happier with
! His work was thorough and complete. He uses a thermal imaging camera to detect potential issues," since our house had a roof leaking in the past, and we want to make sure the issue has been resolved. The Inspection Report provided by
is extremely comprehensive with lots of pictures, and easy to follow explanation of the issues. I highly recommend
! You will not be disappointed.

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

Buying a home is one of the biggest decisions you will make in your lifetime.

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!!!

spent 2.5 hours carefully inspecting the house. Above price was for inspection and radon testing.
They were thorough, professional, and open to any questions we had. I highly recommend shadowing them during inspection to better understand the problems they find. Given their background in real estate (
Escondido Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
) and contractor (

), we were able to get valuable opinions on the house and how to approach the problems they found.

suggested that we give his contact information to anyone who wanted to discuss his findings.
He e-mailed a detailed report the same night. It was clear and easy to understand. He recommended remedy for each problem.
One of the problem he suspected was leak from jacuzzi that was detected by high drywall humidity below the tub. Seller and their plumber denied the presence of leak. After the seller agreed to create an access panel, we asked
Escondido Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
to demonstrate the leak that was indeed present! We also asked him to do re-inspection after seller fixed all the issues.
He sent me a follow-up e-mail one month after our move inquiring if we had any questions or issues.
I would highly recommend

The inspection went well. As our house is older, many of the older systems are grandfathered in so they could not be included as defects on the inspection.

were instrumental in pointing out areas of concern and suggesting various ways of updating or changing them. The report was incredibly thorough and the entire process was smooth. The price is maybe 25-30 higher than other inspectors in the area, however the service and attention given to the customer were easily worth double that. I would use this company for an inspection again in a heartbeat.

is the best inspector I have ever used.. He found every little detail and took the time to explain everything to me right there at the house. He is also very personable and professional. The inspection lasted 3 hours and he took his time. His report arrived by early evening and was excellent. He is a rare find and highly recommended. His prices are competitive and you do get what you pay for.

showed up on time and prepared to go. He walked through each step of the inspection with us and explained what he was looking for and what he found. He also offered his opinion for a solution. He let us know if any issue was going to be a bigger problem in the future
We had contracts on two houses - the first one we backed out of based on the inspection report.
We had our report in a timely manner - with photos.
Thank you

He was early for the appointment early which I loved. He did a very thorough inspection. As we walked the house he explained in detail everything that was great with the house everything that was ok/good and everything that need work. He answered all of my questions. He took time explaining in detail everything he was looking for. I called around for pricing of home inspections and

price was the most reasonable. While still knowing your getting a great job. He gave me a copy of the inspection right at the end. I would definitely refer him to anybody.

The inspector and his helper were very professional and knowledgeable. They showed me the areas of concern and explained why they should be repaired. The Inspector showed me how to operate all relevant home systems including several I was unfamiliar with including a fire place, a water softening system, a central vacuum system and a furnace humidifier. He also explained in great detail the useful life of various home appliances and systems and when I should expect to replace or service them. All in all, very happy and satisfied with the inspector, the value and the process. I would use

again and recommend them to friends and family who need a home inspection.

When I arrived for our appointment Ed had just finished inspecting the roof. We went inside and I followed him around while he inspected in every nook and cranny. He also explained some home maintenance tips that I was totally unaware of. He took pictures of any issues and we had the report a few hours later.
