"
did a very excellent job for us. He looked through piece by piece and tested everything there. Also, he answered anything I asked and more." I am so glad to get him to inspect my new built house.

"We used
at the recommendation of our realtor and, after purchasing and moving into the home from out of state, are very disappointed with" our use of this home inspector. Since moving in we have found numerous issues with the home that were overlooked in the inspection, not reported to us (and were very obvious), or were given false information. Since moving in (my husband moved in and bought the home site unseen) we have found the following issues, and neither of us have any background in construction or inspection: Cracked pool skimmer which caused the pool to drain a couple of inches every day. Pool walls without any footing or foundation structural support at all - these walls are now leaning away from the house and pool causing the pool and deck to crack in significant ways (we were told the cement deck cracking was due to regular foundation settlement found in FL). Pool equipment that was completely rusted and non-operational but was listed as "serviceable and in good condition." A leak in the roof above the garage has caused 3 holes in the ceiling to fall in, a carpenter ant infestation, and mold in our garage. A listing stating we have a dryer vent when we do not (
problem - but cost us to get a vent added or a ventless dryer). Our chimney screen is being held onto the roof by large rocks and this was not even mentioned anywhere in the report! We are beyond unsatisfied with
and as a result purchased a home we love which is now quickly racking up major expenses. We did not receive a thorough or honest inspection of our home and cannot recommend this company to anyone else looking to purchase a new home in good condition. Had the report been accurate I doubt that our bank would have approved a loan on this home.

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 excellent to work with and we were very pleased with the quality of the work.
Most significantly,
Johnson City Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
discovered that the cement board siding on the exterior of the house was curling on the bottom ever-so-slightly. This is a potentially significant issue because of the possibility of water damage. Replacing or repairing siding is expensive, so it was great to know about the condition issue before making the purchase, so we could negotiate a financial arrangement with the previous owner that would allow us to take care of the problem.
I've had a number of questions after moving in and

Service in order to get a detailed roofing inspection.
Johnson City Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
informed me that he is a HOME inspector and that for my issues I needed a certified roofing inspector. He could have taken the job and charged me for his services and provided some sort of report that might have been what I needed, but he did not. He referred me to another roofing expert. Since then I have had my roof inspected and the issues identified and am in the process of obtaining bids for repairs and re-roofing.

We had a unique situation and needed an inspection done on short notice during our option period.

and his staff bent over backwards to make it work during our time constraints. He is super knowledgeable and did an excellent job taking the time to explain all of his findings during the inspection. It was important to us that he had many years of experience providing home inspections but also had experience as a builder so he knows all the ins and outs of what it takes to make a solid structure. He wasn't the cheapest inspector available but was reasonably priced given his knowledge and experience. You can't go wrong using

did a phenomenal and thorough job for our inspection. He found a safety issue that could have cause a fire if left unattended. His findings allowed us to have the owners take action on items leaving us to enjoy our new home.

Inspector was very thorough and knowledgeable. Arrived a few minutes ahead of time to start inspection of the outside of the property (roof, garage, perimeter of home). Provided great insight into the condition of the home and major and minor repairs that should be considered. Inspector's expertise in spotting mold was appreciated. He suspected mold and took a sample that was tested by a lab (for a reasonable fee) and confirmed as mold. This saved me money and time as I was able to negotiate repairs with the seller. I have used Smartchoice for multiple inspections and have referred them for work with others and all our experiences have been equally satisfying. If you are looking for an experienced and professional inspector, Smartchoice is the way to go! Thanks

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.
Johnson City Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
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!
