"Everything about my experience with Darrul Stocks was grade A. He answered the telephone when I called to inquire about services and answered any and all questions" that I had over the telephone. He was able to schedule the home inspection for the very next day, at a time very convenient for me. He arrived early The report was received approximately 4 hours after completing the inspection. I've had other home inspections before but none were as good and as thorough as Stocks. The inspection took approximately three hours and the report that was provided to me was very thorough. He used a thermal imaging device to detect leaks and heat loss throughout the house. He checked all drains for proper drainage, checked for signs of leaks at all faucets, and did a thorough inspection of the structure including the deck, roof, foundation, and more. He also thoroughly inspected the mechanical components of the house to my satisfaction as well. All in all I believe that I received a great inspection for a very fair price. I will be recommending Darrul Stocks to all of my friends who are purchasing homes. My realtor was equally impressed and has told me that she will be recommending
also.

"This is the third home I plan to buy, so I have past experience dealing with a home inspection. The two prior inspections were not done to my satisfaction as things" were found in my previous homes which should have been pointed out. For example, the first home I bought should have never past inspection for termites, but unfortunately for me it did. My second home had some overlooked findings, as well. I met
at my future residence at 9:00am.
had already arrived and was already observing some things in the kitchen. I came into the house and we introduced ourselves.
first explained to me how his inspections are to be read with the final report. He gave me a flash drive that contains a manual of how he conducts his inspections. I thought this was a nice gesture. We then began the inspection by going from room to room and he was very thorough in pointing out even the smallest details. He gave me suggestions for future homeowner upkeep. He even supplied me with names of people and businesses that I could look into for future services that may be of use.
has a nice website with a small video which summarizes his business. When you meet and begin talking with
, you will realize that he knows his business. He takes great pride in explaining to you what to look for in a house. I wish I would have had this experience in my two prior homes. It really makes a huge difference when you find a person like
, as you go away from that experience knowing that your money was well spent! Thanks again,
!

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

Home Inspection

You may never believe the things a home inspector will discover unless you're there, too. Being at your home inspection lets you see any problems firsthand.

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!!!

arrived early and spent close to 3 hours going over a 1400 square foot home. The price was $270 with the A.L. discount and was worth every dollar. He brought his laptop and printer and provided me with the inspection assessment before leaving - which included a binder and dvd...both of which were very well done and easy to understand. I was impressed with the thoroughness of the inspection,

was very timely and professional in his communication. While at the house, he took his time and was very thorough with the items he inspected. At the end of the inspection, he clearly explained what he found and took the time to answer all of our questions. I will be using him again to inspect our detached garage when the builder is finished with it.

When he completed the inspection, he used a fine toothed come. He was thorough and very meticulous. I appreciated how he went through every crack and cranny, top to bottom. Once he did all of that, he took pictures and went item by item on what exactly was going on in the report. He is true professional, that knows his stuff. If people are gonna try to hide things from him, he's going to find it! Very punctual, funny, and so honesty. Everything was outstanding. He had all kinds of gadgets to make sure that all my appliances worked, and was even able to tell the true temperature of the house, and could detect how much moisture was coming through any leaks in my house.

was great. He was on time, answered all my questions, and explained things to me in a way I could understand. The seller of my future home that was inspected was being pushy about dates, and

is professional and extremely thorough. He was on time for the inspection and we had his report the next day. He did such a thorough inspection that the seller of the house asked for his card so that she could have him inspect the house she was purchasing!

I couldn't ask for a better inspection. Amazing detail, and helpful at every turn.
Burlington Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
offered to answer any questions I may have and look over any future contractor estimates for work I need done. He was extremely professional and knowledgable. After dealing with him, I would never call another inspector. He really knows his stuff and is honest and forthright. He also caught an error made by a contractor who was there the previous day, that I would have not noticed for weeks or months had he not been there. I'm pleased to say that because of him, the contractor immediately corrected the problem and I'm back on track. Well worth every penny and then some!

showed up early and had already begun some preliminary work inspecting the outside of the home. He had a worker with him prepping every room ahead of us and testing most things to point out specifics to

took the time to explain things he was marking off during the inspection and let us know what had to be done to fix it and how high on our list of repairs each should be. He made a very stressful process calm and easy to understand and comprehend. He was such a pleasure to work with and I would gladly use him again and recommend him to anyone who needs a home inspection.
