was very professional and friendly and most important provided a great detailed report of my home. He showed up early to meet my Realtor;" he answered all my questions and explained his potential concerns on the day of inspection. I had a short closing deadline and
was able to provide a quick turn around on the final report. The final report with pictures, comments and references was very thorough and easy to understand. I would definitely recommend him to friends and family.

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.

Finding lenders, real estate agents, home inspectors and other professionals you can trust is an important first step in buying a house. Here's how to do it.

Dear Angie: Should I hire an independent home inspector to look over a newly built tract home? — Deborah D. of Renton, Washington

Angie's Answers

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!!!

Charleston Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
was an incredible inspector. He took the time to not only inspect the entire home, but also to point out routine maintenance that would be done, where things were located that I would look for in the future, and talk through everything he saw to make sure I knew exactly why he was putting what he was putting. He was very knowledgeable on every aspect of a home along with codes and little hints about home ownership. I was incredibly happy with the choice to go with him on an home inspection and trust that he looked for every defect he could find. He got me the report within 3 hours of leaving the inspection and was incredibly professional and personable. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a home inspector.

After being referred by my realtor,
Charleston Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
came out on an early Saturday morning to provide a full home inspection for us. He arrived early, and was EXTREMELY thorough. We received an in-depth inspection with top quality equipment that was well beyond what a typical inspection would include. Moisture monitors, extensive and crisp photographs, infrared photos of suspected trouble areas and an extremely knowledgeable inspector who isn't afraid to get dirty in tight spaces all

Mr.
Charleston Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
was ever so patient with me. Being my first home, my uncle came to inspect the A/C for us as well. Mr.
Charleston Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
was so thorough and helpful and even collaborated with my uncle for repair plans and information. His pricing was extremely competitive, seeing that everyone else in the area quoted anywhere from $450 all the way to $675. In his inspection he says he uses infrared technology to inspect beneath the walls (seemingly for electrical shorts, etc.), but I did not witness him actually do that. I was running behind, so he may have done it in the presence of my uncle, but I wasn't %100 sure he did. Even if he hadn't, his inspection was very informative, he made me feel at ease, and gave me his honest opinion about repairs and even advice on pool maintenance! I would absolutely call him again and have already recommended him to two of my friends!
