"
did a very thorough inspection, and turned up a number of issues that needed to be fixed before my one-year builder warranty on my new house" ran out. His experience and knowledge are very apparent, and he took a lot of time explaining the items he found, and even what the follow-up should be. Since I was feeling a bit overwhelmed, and really don't understand electrical or HVAC issues, this was very much appreciated. My builder is in the process of fixing these items, and having
's report gave me a much better understanding of what needs work, and a lot of peace-of-mind that the house will be in better shape due to his inspection. Thanks,
!

"Inspector was on time and professional spent about four hours inspecting house. He did walk the roof which not all companies do. Did uncover a major problem in the" crawl space which had standing water evidence of prior water and some rotting sills. The only complaint I had is that due to the water in the crawl which was a few inches deep he did not inspect a portion of the crawl which was of particular concern due to some observations on the outside of the home. I asked if they finish this part of the inspection when the crawl dried they would for an additional charge. They were already on the high side for local inspectors and charge the full price even if they cannot access all areas for inspection. We ended up walking away from the deal. Contacted them about 10 days later as we were looking to get another house inspection asked if they could give a discount for repeat customers and in light of the prior incomplete inspection. They said no discounts and we chose another company.

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!!!

Waltham Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
is not only punctual and professional, but accommodating and understanding. The inspector,
Waltham Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
, did the four-point inspection on our older home and went above and beyond by paying attention to every detail. He was extremely knowledgable and answered all of questions. I highly recommend this company and I will use them in the future. I can't say enough about how accommodating they were! I had an odd situation with the home we were buying, and the appointment time had to be later in the evening.

I have used
Waltham Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
for my own home (2002) as well as several rental purchases (2005, 2006, 2007 and 2012). I absolutely would use
Waltham Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
again (and have) as well as highly recommend him to others - in fact, a buyer used
Waltham Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
when I sold one of the rentals.
Waltham Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
is very highly trained and experienced in all facets of residential construction, as well as being licensed builder.
He thoroughly knows the industry and the players; he helps you avoid shortcuts and pitfalls, and he strongly prefers dealing with customer directly so they can walk along and ask questions. He speaks non-builder language, so that his advise is meaningful and understandable. In fact, I videotaped all of his inspections, so I could keep up and not waste time trying to take written notes on everything --
Waltham Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
was totally cool with that. Totally trustworthy -- you'll feel like you have "
Waltham Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
" in your hip pocket. He helped us avoid a purchase which was a disaster behind the fresh paint and he helped us get considerable savings on other purchase which had severe crawl space problems.
Only complaint, which really is not a complaint, is that
Waltham Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
can talk! Get him going on his martial arts training and you could be there all afternoon. Very small price to pay for someone so well versed in the business and broadly experienced. He is worth every dime of this price.

Went through the whole house with a fine tooth comb. He went on the roof and carefully went over every part of the roof, through the whole attic and right to every corner of the crawl space. Took lots of notes and photographs. Answered all our questions thoroughly (and in his report he made a special effort to answer our questions with even more detail). Noted pest problems, rot issues, safety concerns, code violations and tested every outlet. If something didn't make sense to him, he would keep investigating until he found the answer. Professional, punctual and fast response time to text/emails. The report was well explained and thorough. Will be using him again and recommend him to my friends.

The home inspection went well with he inspector arriving on time and requested me to follow him around so that the inspection results were communicated verbally as well as in the inspection report. The inspection appeared to be thorough (only after we move in will we know) as he looked at things I would not have considered, including getting further evaluation for a couple of problems identified . He was ready and willing to answer questions and informed me of the limitations of the inspection. The report followed in a timely manner and allowed us to negotiate on some of the limitations.

picked up the phone immediately upon calling and was able to schedule an appointment for us with short notice.

was extremely friendly and accommodating to our schedule.
On the day of inspection

arrived promptly (early!) and had already scouted areas to inspect. He diligently outlined his plan of action with us and then proceeded to do an incredibly thorough inspection.

would first inspect an area, then call us to walk through the area and review all of his findings. He also took time to answer any questions at each of these review sessions (outside, first floor, attic, crawlspace, basement, etc).
Waltham Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
also produced an incredibly detailed report with pictures of all areas of concern categorized by risk (safety or otherwise). The report was very helpful and it further highlighted all of the areas

I was a little nervous at first when I called, he had me text him the information so he could send the information I needed back to me. After that though my worries were squashed. He was very professional, on time and did a thorough inspection. I

Working with
Waltham Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
was an outstanding experience. We have purchased 3 homes and used three different inspectors.
Waltham Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
was very thorough, provided important detail using pictures and description, and gave us a thorough set of instructions for home maintenance. In addition, he was flexible on timing, which was important as our home is newly built and the very final completions steps were happening a bit later than expected.
In person,
Waltham Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
is warm and personable while always professional. When you walk around with him, he resembles a trusted teacher showing you the ins and outs of your home's inner workings. He was a safe port in the storm of new home purchase. We will use him again if we move.
