"We needed a home inspection done before buying a home, when we arrived he was just finishing the paperwork. He was very polite and personable. He walked us through" the home inside and out explaining everything on his report and even making great and reasonable suggestions to help us avoid any problems that may occur later down the road. He answered all of our questions and addressed any concerns that we had. I would highly recommended this company to anyone looking for an honest thorough inspector that not only respects the owners but also potential buyers!

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!!!

We engaged
San Marcos Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
, LLC (
San Marcos Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
) to perform a standard home inspection on a 10 year old residence in Freehold, NJ, which we closed on in early September. Our real estate agent suggested several companies that her firm uses for our consideration. However, we felt it was important for us to select a company that was independent of the realtor because the conclusions would likely be more unbiased. We decided to

Angie's List for other firms. We were impressed by the fact that

's reviews were particularly strong and that it was located in the area. We also took note of the fact that
San Marcos Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
is certified in a number of home inspection disciplines and that he is a former home-builder, which we believe provides valuable experience in doing inspections.
Our decision to choose

was a good one.
San Marcos Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
performed an extremely comprehensive inspection of the interior and exterior of the house, including structural elements, electrical/plumbing, HVAC, appliances etc. He was more than willing for us to follow him along throughout the process so that we could observe the issues he was identifying. He provided thorough, yet easily understandable, explanations,of the problems he found, the underlying cause(s), and how to prevent a recurrence, once the problem was remedied. Given the relative newness of the house, there were no significant issues found, but

also gave us a number of useful maintenance tips on how to prevent problems in future years as the home ages.

's written report was of equally high quality as the inspection itself. It was very comprehensive, providing a number of photos which clearly illustrated the particular items being addressed. The report's findings were so well documented that it left no questions on our part or from the sellers and their agent. It was a very useful tool in negotiating repairs and, in one instance, obtaining compensation from the sellers.
In conclusion,

Homes Inspections performed an excellent review which helped prevent unnecessary stress during the buying process, while also empowering us during post contract negotiations.

Initially, the report I was given in the pre-drywall inspection of our new-build we were contracted on left a lot to be desired. There wasn't much detail in the report and just included images with not a ton of information documenting what the impact of the issues were if they weren't fixed. The build process on our new-build went poorly and we opted to get out and into an existing home that was a better build. As part of the initial deal paid for, there was one-half of the service not rendered. I spoke with the scheduler at
San Marcos Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
and they offered to do an existing home inspection for a discounted cost.
The inspector who came out was quick and efficient and he provided a very detailed report with the necessary detail needed to go to the seller with proposed fixes(which there weren't many, thank god). All and all, I was impressed enough with the second go-around of service to offer my full recommendation of this company. They were on-time, professional, and thorough.

arrived on time and got to work right away. He was incredibly detailed in his home inspection, taking photos with his iPad and welcoming us to tag along with him the entire time to get a detailed understanding of the home we were looking to purchase. He left us with a great sense of all concerns with the house and also how to go about fixing these problem areas. Later that day he emailed us a detailed report complete with photos of all problem areas and how to go about fixing them. I would recommend

I scheduled the home inspection for 1:00. They put it in their calendar wrong so they showed up at the house at 10:00am. Instead of calling me, or the realtor since we weren't there they started the outside part of the inspection. The home owners were home at the time and upset because they thought it was supposed to be at 1:00 that day. When I found out I called the company and told them that they needed to stop the inspection and come back at 1:00 when we had scheduled. They were very annoyed that I asked this. They came back and 1:00 and complained to both me and the realtor that they had to stop the job and start again. When we moved into the house a week later we found that 3 of the fans don't work, the hose outside for the pool doesn't get water into it, many of the electrical outlets don't work, etc, etc. None of the items were listed in the inspection as being faulty. I was very disappointed.

HIt went very well.

took his time to go all over the home. After he is done, he goes over everything answering any questions you might have. Then he sends you a full detailed report with pictures and a scale of how bad things are. The owner agreed to have the things we asked for repaired so we will call
