was great to work with from beginning to end. He answered his phone each time we called and made scheduling with us a priority. He informed" us that he would arrive an hour early to inspect the exterior. He did this so that our realtor did not need to be there for this part. Very considerate. He arrived promptly and prepared. His inspection was extensive, including every nook and cranny. He explained all of his findings to us verbally when he finished. He provided very detailed answers (and sketches) to all of our questions. He made us feel like he had all the time in the world to help us understand his findings. He helped us understand which projects were most pressing and which could be done by a handyman vs. a specialist.
repeatedly expressed that he was available for future questions at any time. We recvd his completed report in less than 12 hours. The report was detailed yet provided a perfect concise summary at the end. Plenty of pictures to add to the transparency. Luckily, his inspection found a handful of minor projects to be done but also confirmed we had found a well constructed house. We have a home inspector for life!

"If you REALLY want to know what's going on with a home you've decided to purchase, Benchmark is the company to call. Owner
Bishton" knows what he's doing and he will share with you as much information as you want to know. He's up front about what he can and can't do, and will refer you for further evaluation when he can't give you important information. He breaks down his findings in ways you can understand, so that you know the best ways to mitigate potential problems. He offers general maintenance tips based on the age of the house, type of materials he's referring to, and even offers tips on what NOT to do, if that's important. Additionally,
is willing to be your go-to for information even after your home inspection is complete. Having a unbiased opinion on future home repairs can be invaluable, especially if you're not knowledgeable in construction yourself.
was punctual, and a pleasure to work with.

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!!!

did an excellent job on my inspection. I had some retrofitting done, and I needed another inspection.
Rockford Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
was on top of things. He made sure everything was taken care of correctly. He was in the attic checking trusses, and in the garage checking shutters, and even on the roof.
He had my Wind Mitigation Inspection ready by the end of the day. It saved me alot of money on my homeowners insurance.
I will definitely recommend him to my friends and family!!
If you need a trusted inspector, who will back up his reports against insurance carriers, give him a call.
Thanks

The provider was punctual, getting back to us within a few hours of posting an inquiry on Angie's List. The inspection needed to occur within a few days and he was very accommodating of our time concern. He was punctual and did a good, comprehensive job. His report was delivered electronically, after we paid through his website. It was fast, clean and easy.

We couldn't have been more pleased with the service provided by
Rockford Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
(Foundation 2 Rooftop). Having moved around the country and purchased several homes we knew that an inspection is a MUST DO regardless of the age of the home. So after much research we hired Foundation 2 Rooftop. Now, there are inspectors and then there are INSPECTORS. what we mean by that and many do not know is that some (not all) inspection companies are highly recommended by real estate agents & brokers. However, as the home purchaser it is YOUR CHOICE to hire who you want and I highly recommend that you do your homework to find the best inspector. Just don't go with the one that is recommended by the agents or broker. We did our homework and found

showed up early to our appointment (remember, you as the homeowner should attend & have the right to attend) he did a top (roof, attic) to bottom inspection (foundation).

found areas of our newly constructed/built home that needed to be attended to and if it wasn't for him we'd never have known these areas, such as insulation in attic not covering entire attic, nor depth or fill we paid for, cracked rafter in attic, electrical switches not installed correctly, furnace exhaust fan & dishwasher not working, concrete sloping into home, etc... I could list the entire report but I think you get the point. We were very grateful that

inspected our home and did a very detailed inspection (included a write up & video). He was very good at answering my multitude of questions and made suggestions as well. He even answered questions we had after the inspection. To sum it all up. I believe that not all inspectors/inspections are the same and the only one I would TRUST is

"Foundation 2 Rooftop'. Your home is the most likely one of the largest investments you'll make and its your right to have who you want and don't let anyone tell you that Foundation 2 Rooftop can't come on the property to inspect the home (regardless of what the agents or brokers say.) If they say he can't come onto the property and you've hired him, WALK AWAY from the house deal!!!! Seriously. Ask yourself; why would they not want a professional inspector such as Foundation 2 Rooftop to inspect...makes you think, doesn't it! Please don't be swayed by what others say... find out for yourself. Question: Is the Agent or broker going to be the house you bought when something that should have been caught at the inspection goes wrong, don't be fooled by the home warranty either - it doesn't cover everything? Will they pay for it because the inspector missed it? The correct answer is NO. I would only recommend Foundation 2 Rooftop!

AJ was very thorough in his inspection and gave a detailed report the same day he performed the inspection, adding photos in the report of highlighted areas of potential problems. AJ ran the water long enough to fill the bathtubs, which helped him discover sludge in our well's water lines. Based on conversation with our realtor, she noted that other inspectors she's seen don't perform that kind of extensive work. Just weeks before our inspection of this house with AJ, another buyer had the same house inspected with a different inspector. Their inspector didn't find the sludge that AJ found or the cracked line in the garbage disposal system. AJ even pulled the history of the home's permits days before the inspection began, getting a better feel for the background history with this house. Overall, we felt very confident in his abilities as an inspector and highly recommend AJ as he is also very professional and courteous.
