"Excellent.
with
was recommended by my realtor. We attempted to purchase our first house and
" spent ~4 hours going through the entire house. I participated in the inspection and he patiently answered all my questions. Due to his noticing of the wet / swelling wall in the master bath, in coordination with the Thermal Imaging Gun he uses, we had a follow up mold inspection performed. The mold inspection determined the house had Black Mold! Due to his close observation we avoided buying a house with a potential nightmare! One thing that was interesting is that another person attempted to buy the 1st house prior to us but their financing fell through. We received a copy of their inspectors report and compared to
's it was garbage. That inspector probably only caught a 1/10th of what
found and some of the things he noted were incorrect.
then performed the inspection on the 2nd house which we ultimately purchased. Again he was professional and spent plenty of time checking all the details. We are completely happy with the house and went into the purchase understanding the potential problems we faced during the renovation.

"Getting your home inspected is a little like taking your car to a garage--yeah, you might get an honest mechanic who really wants to help you out and find reasonable" solutions for what actually needs fixing, but more likely you'll run across some filthy dude in coveralls chewing something unmentionable and casually informing you that a million billion different parts of your car that you didn't know existed need replacing and it'll cost you $3000 and if you don't pay it your car will probably collapse into a rusting pile of twisted metal the instant you drive it off the lot.
is the honest mechanic. They'll tell you exactly what's wrong--no crazy stories, no condescension, no intimidation or judgment. But let me tell you about my experience with them. I had to have an unusual inspection as part of a permitting process. I called all around town hoping to find someone willing and able without any success. One inspector wanted to charge me $350, which was almost as much as the construction itself was going to cost! The inspection was holding up construction, and I thought it was never going to get done.
at
, however, made time in his hectic schedule to do the inspection quickly, efficiently, and at a very reasonable cost. He was extremely professional, knowledgable, prompt, honest, and all-around a no-nonsense kind of guy. In my experience, home inspectors have a tendency to talk down to you or act like you're a horrible person because you didn't know that the flanges on your hot water heater (or whatever) are supposed to be made of *stainless steel* rather than aluminum. I didn't get anything like that from
. It was an entirely positive experience. I would recommend
to anyone looking for inspections of any kind, whether you're buying, selling, renovating, whatever. You won't regret it.

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.

You may never believe the things a home inspector will discover unless you're there, too. Being at your home inspection lets you see any problems firsthand.

One highly rated provider shares five things your contractor may have forgotten during a home inspection and why you should look to a qualified inspector.

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!!!

They found that I was above the normal level for radon after a 48 hour test, and gave me the number for someone that would take good care of me. The guy was super nice. My wife felt very comfortable in the house with

as our inspector. He walked me through what the results meant and told me the other services they offer. I will definitely take advantage of their expertise with other inspections I will need.

The inspection was wonderful. He was scheduled for 10am, we got there at 9:55am and he was already out of his truck and finishing up inspecting the outside of the house. He started the inspection in the basement which he described to be the best determination of the quality of structure and house.
Independence Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
tested all the electrical outlets and noticed many things the average inspector would not find. He has over 14 years inspection experience and also shared that he was previously a builder. He was in the house and outside for a little over an hour and a half providing a very thorough inspection. He gave us tips and pointers of what to watch out for as well. He took many pictures and will provide a detailed report for us to review.

I really appreciate when a professional can give “bad news” without being critical, and

was willing to explain both the causes and the fixes to each item he identified. He was very approachable and made what could have been a miserable experience (he found a few problems that will require expensive repairs) much more bearable. We definitely appreciated his candor and his suggestions.

gave us great confidence on exactly what was needed to be fixed in the house. He was VERY thorough in checking every corner of the house. I don't have a lot of experience in house inspections but we used a different company for another house we considered and
Independence Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
was much more thorough than the previous company that we used which gave me greater confidence. We were able to use his detailed notes and photos to negotiate a lot more things to be fixed or be given credits. We hired

to come back for a final inspection and he was able to point out things that they claimed were fixed but were not completely. Again, this helped with final negotiations. Thanks!

They provided inspection services on the date requested, both the termite and the house inspector showed up promptly. The office staff and inspector were polite, professional, pleasant to work with. The house inspector was very thorough and very knowledgeable about all aspects of construction and home maintenance; he spent three hours examining a three bedroom house. He allowed me to accompany him as he worked and explained things clearly. He provided a very detailed report with specific directions on how to mitigate the issues he identified, and delivered the report one workday after the inspection. I don't know what other inspection services charge so cannot comment on whether the fee was reasonable or high, but in my opinion it was money well spent and I would definitely use this company again.

The home is solid and in mint condition which
Independence Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
acknowledged. He examined a 27-year-old 1400 sqf home, 2-bedroom/2-bath, elevated over 10 ft with 100 ft of dockage and a small pool. He was still able to identify numerous minor deficiencies but also a few potential safety issues, i.e. exposed wiring connections in the attic, a hanging light fixture over the pool, an electrical transformer in the attic that delivered a shock upon contact, and a small section of improperly installed insulation with paper-side exposed. I now feel that I have the full status of my prospective house...good peace of mind.
