"RVery good.
was very thorough. His diligence allowed me to go back to the seller to get them to replace the roof before we closed! His" report was easy to read and to see the things that we needed to address with the seller. He arrived promptly when scheduled and was done in 5 1/2 hours. It was a great experience for us.

"He seems to be a good inspector but BUYER BEWARE. He held me hostage on the report. He has an online service contract which I did not sign and he would not give" me the report without my signature. The service contract is ridiculous and one-way. I offered to do a
contract releasing him of any liability and his only response was "click and sign the contract online or you will not get the report". WOULD NOT recommend him at all due to this flaw. Due to the timing on my purchase and sale contract, I did not have time to schedule another inspector so he could be costing me thousands of dollars.

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!!!

is the one who performed my inspection at this location and who I will always use in the future. He was very thorough and invited me over before he was through. He found a lot of things that we had missed. We will be using him again soon. What a great guy to work with. Thank you Angie's List!

was terrific! Even before the scheduled time for the appointment,
Newton Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
was on site inspecting the exterior and had already taken many pictures and notes. He let me tag along during the inspection and was a wealth of information and advice. He was a pleasure to chat with and was quite patient with all of my questions. When issues were spotted, he had no problem letting me know what I could fix myself and when I should hire a professional.

He inspected everything in the home and it was easy to tell that he has a lot of experience and knowledge. I received a complete report, with pictures, through email the same day. I have used

twice and hand up buying the first house he inspected.

I would definitely recommend

Outstanding in all respects. The technician was experienced and knowledgeable, courteous and professional. The work was completed on time and within the original estimate. The test results and reports were very well done and accepted for payment by our insurance company.

I have been considering selling my townhouse so I decided to purchase this "Big Deal" for a home inspection as a preemptive measure in the event there were any issues that I wasn't aware of.
Newton Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
contacted me promptly and scheduled my inspection within the week. He arrived on time, was extremely professional and invited me to follow him throughout the house and ask questions. He began the inspection on the roof, however he was only able to stand on the ladder and perform a visual of one side. He was able to point out a few minor issues with the gutter. Since my roof is relatively new, I really didn't have a problem with him not being able to access the back side. Also, when he did the attic inspection, he seemed to do a thorough job of checking for any water infiltration, water stains and mold so I felt confident the roof was sound. I was impressed by how respectful

was of my property. I have new carpeting and he removed his shoes upon entering without being asked. I have a newly renovated finished basement. When he checked the electric panel, we found that the painters had painted around the access area.

carefully removed the cover without chipping the paint or creating a mess. He was careful about moving the ceiling panels so he could inspect the wiring. He inspected my foundation walls for any evidence of moisture or mold. He gave me assurances that things were done correctly as well as making recommendations to correct some minor issues (ie. install GFI outlet outside, repair cracks in mortar, etc). I really anticipated that because I purchased the deal, the inspection would be not as thorough as I'd like. I was pleasantly surprised that
Newton Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
did not hurry...he took his time and spent several hours observing and taking photos. The inspection report was comprehensive and included the photos of areas that require attention. I'm glad I decided to have this done. In the event I do decide to sell, there should be no major surprises when the potential buyer performs their own inspection.

. He arrived 15 minutes early. It was an early morning appointment, but he still had a smile on his face and was very friendly. After small chit chat to get to know us, he got right to work and walked us through every inch of our new home. He provided detailed answers to all of our questions. He explained what he was looking for in each room and why it was important. The detailed report was provided within the same day as the inspection and looked professional. I would recommend

Inspectors worked fast, efficient and thorough. They definitely don't waste time nor do they skimp on details. I was amazed at how fast they worked and how professional they were in walking me through the home to explain their findings. They made sure I understood what they found wrong and what was needed to fix it. And their inspection report was incredibly thorough and informative, lots of pictures and detailed information. I would not hesitate to recommend them to family and friends.
