"
has helped us out many, many times over the course of several years. His extensive experience in nearly all facets of the construction business" (both private and commercial) spanning several cities and states ensured that he provided us an outstanding job while doing home inspections of various kinds. Needless to say, it provided us with a certain peace of mind in knowing that he was providing us helpful and correct information. In our case,
helped us identify the root cause of both minor and not-so-minor issues. From identifying relatively minor issues such as water heater problems to not-so-minor issues such as roof inspection (when our roof had to be replaced after storm damage),
identified issues with warmth, concern, integrity and a friendliness that provided peace of mind. In the case of the roof replacement,
advocated on our behalf for the addition of a ridge vent on the roof (which, incidentally, turned out to be pretty helpful in terms of maintaining the temperature in the house). In my opinion, he is one of the
gems of the construction and home inspection business. If you discover this review, I suspect he won't be so "
" much more, but -- truth be told -- it's time more people discover
's work. (FYI,
's company name is called "Eagle Eye Inspections". The price of his services, of course, depended on the work he did).

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!!!

Having gone through several home inspections, I can say that
Richmond Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
was an excellent inspector. He was very thorough and took the time to ensure that you understood all of the workings of the home & why the things that he found were relevant (he also was very clear about the key items you should really care about vs. the minor/cosmetic type fixes). While the inspection lasted ~4+hours for a ~3,500 S.F. home,
Richmond Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
did not waste anyone's time. He moved quickly through his analysis & was very succinct with his explanations. He was able to turn his report within 24 hours, which was well-put together, easy to understand & complete with all relevant photos/explanations (for what its worth, the sellers agreed to fix everything that
Richmond Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
identified in his report). Unfortunately, the subject house purchase fell through on appraisal issues. We tried to hire
Richmond Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
again for our next inspection but he was booked up and unable to do the inspection on the date that we required. So my only complaint would be that he may want to consider developing a team of inspectors to learn his skills/approach and work for him so that he can cover more ground in the Chicagoland area.

I am so disappointed with this company. They inspected the house we were buying last year. They missed so many things:

- Major leak in sunroom. Water damage was obvious once we knew to look for it.
- Outside security light was not sealed (half inch gap between light base and wall, more water damage)
- Kitchen sink did not drain properly, had to be fixed by plumber
- Shower did not drain properly, had to be fixed by plumber
- Garage sink did not drain properly, had to be fixed by plumber
- Both shower valves did not work properly and had to be replaced
- Outdoor deck not sealed, in bad shape. Spent a lot to fix this.
- Indoor wood beams not coated, cracked later and had to be fixed
- Garage roof not properly supported and badly sagging, had to use ceiling
Richmond Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
to fix
- Front door handle does not latch and had to be fixed
... etc, etc

We have spent over $5k last year fixing things they missed, and there are many more things that we still need to do. We spent a premium on our house thinking it was in great shape, based largely on the inspection report from this company. Highly recommend never to use this company.

and
Richmond Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
were very great to work with and handled all matters professionally. I liked that he helped to differentiate between the items that need to be repaired and what items need to be replaced. Categorizing his findings this way, helped me to prioritize which items I would like to be addressed by the sellers.
