"He climbed on top of my second story roof. He was very thorough! More thorough than either realtor expected. From the foundation to the roof he examined everything." He explained everything and encouraged questions. He showed me how things worked such as grading issues and structural concerns. He even used a water meter to test how wet or dry the walls were all over. (Invaluable in
) I believe he saved me from a terrible, possibly even dangerous home.

was extremely professional when I contacted him to perform a full inspection on a house I wanted to purchase. He was referred to me by a" close friend who told me he worked diligently and was very detailed. He was very accommodating, and was able to make time to fit my frantic schedule at a competitive price. He showed up on time (rare now a days) and took his time making sure to check all the electric outlets, roof, foundation, plumbing, appliances, and discovered that the wiring in the house was outdated and needed to be fixed which helped save me money when finally negotiating a price on the house. He was able to send me the report the next day and made sure to answer any questions that I had. I would definitely recommend him, and use him in the future!

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!!!

Charleston Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
was at the location 15 minutes before the scheduled appointment time. First of all he introduced himself and gave us a brief overview of what he would do. Then he asked if there was any area of the property that we considered of particular concern or had a question regarding. He explained how he would proceed on the inspection and even offered/suggested that, if we'd like to accompany him through the condo, we were certainly welcome to do so. My friend is an engineer and weekend builder; that was all the encouragement he needed to follow along. We could not have been more impressed with

's thoroughness and clarity in explaining various situations. My Realtor has been watching inspections for more than a decade and had never witnessed any job as complete as

's - he even called the listing agent to the property while we were still there to see some of the issues that should be resolved immediately.
Every square inch of the property was evaluated by

. He found many items that, I have no doubt, would have been missed by a

inspector. It was a damp day and

I have not purchased real estate for a very long time and I was concerned that my lack of experience would make me somehow a victim of my own thought process, If you are like me,

is the man to have on your side. He itemized the areas of the condo that need attention and explained in writing why the listed item was a problem. He then gave cost estimates of each item. He had to have completed the paperwork late into the night since it was electronically sent to me - and my attorney - early the next day.

I called
Charleston Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
because we were concerned that our house was settling; we were noticing cracks in the walls and subtle dips in the floors upstairs. He was cordial and professional during our initial phone call, sounded very knowledgeable about house construction and structural issues. He was flexible about our meeting time, and was able to come within a week. He called ahead to confirm the day before, and arrived right on time the day of the appointment.
Charleston Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
was thorough as we went through the house together. He included us on his inspection, sharing his observations and assuring us that things were not as bad as we had thought. It was very comfortable working with him. He spent about an hour looking at the inside and outside of the house.
After he had finished his inspection, we spoke about his observations and he made a few recommendations to us, along with a suggested timeline. A few days later he followed up with a written report that he sent via email. It included everything we spoke about following the inspection, and included pictures of what he observed.
The only downside was that his fee was a bit higher than the other companies we considered; but I figure you get what you pay for! I would highly recommend

to anyone who needed a structural assessment.

did a very thorough job of not only inspecting our house-to-be, but also explaining what he saw as he went. He made sure we understood each issue and how we could fix it or who we could contact to fix it. I was very impressed with his ability to relay information so we could understand what he was talking about without making us feel stupid.

We received our results for both the radon test and the inspection quickly. Unfortunately, the radon test came back elevated, but because the homeowner entered the home after it started and did some work to the house, the test was skewed.

came back out and did another test for us, which showed consistently high levels.
Charleston Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
provided us with the information we needed to make a decision about the radon levels and who to contact to best mitigate the house.

If we ever buy a house again, we would definitely use

and I would recommend him to anyone who needs an honest, thorough, informative home inspection.

They were not only on time, but arrived early. Checked out everything from the roof, plumbing, electrical panel, siding, sump pump, attic, furnace and AC, dishwasher, disposal,

, and even took the time to inspect the exterior doors. We were grateful we used this company we waited two months to post a review because we were hoping to find something they did not...and we didn't. This company is professional, kind, courteous and will go above and beyond for you. I wouldn't hesitate to use them again in the future.
