"I called
Inspection to schedule an appointment. They were able to do the inspection the next day. I met
and another" employee at the house. They were on time and very thorough. Both guys were very nice and informative. I noticed a few things on the house but they had already take note of areas I had noticed. Its great to have great customer service and a job done right. I would not hesitate to call
Inspection to get your home inspected.

-Patrick O.

"A detailed report was submitted with recomendations. After a couple months in the house, some problems became apparent that we were not made aware of by the inspector." These had to deal with concrete needing to be raised to prevent water from running into the basement. Insulation in walls and ceiling being very inadequate, improper exhaust fans and ventilation issues.

-Larry P.

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.

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!!! 

Home Inspection reviews in Newport News


Inspected my home & garage top to bottom and inspected the crawl space under the house.

was very helpful and informative
on a few concerns I had about termites,my foundation and cracks in my walls. He also give me some tips on a
Newport News Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
room remodel I am in the middle of. One member of his crew even detected a gas leak coming from the meter in the back of my house.

and his crew showed up on time and were very professional. I would use them again.

arrived on time on the day of the inspection. We began with the exterior of the house and the roof, where he pointed out issues that needed to be addressed. During the inspection he would state if the item was a lower or higher priority repair and if higher, what the ramifications would be on the house if not made. He generally categorized repairs as either necessary or a face lift; this provided good perspective for me We then inspected the foundation and basement of the house following the same guidelines.
Newport News Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
inspected the electrical, heating and plumbing systems and provided feedback on their current condition and if an immediate repair was not required he provided the approximate life of the system so I would know when I could expect to make repairs or replacements, which was extremely helpful for future budgeting. We went through each floor of the house and he continued to provide the same useful information. In addition to pointing out what needed to be repaired
Newport News Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
also provided useful information on the type of professional I could hire to get the various jobs done. He noted when prior work done in the house was done well so I might leverage those professionals again; and on the flip side, pointed out work that wasn't done as well and why.
At the end of the walk through he recapped the most pressing exterior and interior issues I should focus on in the immediate term and those that could afford to wait. While he confirmed one pressing issue I was already aware of, he also uncovered several other issues -- some large and some small -- I wasn't aware of. If fact, only an inspector, who focuses on the entire house, would likely have uncovered these other issues. He was a pleasure to meet and work with and well worth his fee. I would hire him again as well as refer him to others.

This is the second time I have used

Shapely at
Newport News Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
to inspect a home I was looking to purchase and I will never us anyone else. If you are looking for a home inspector there is no need to look elsewhere. He spent 6 hours doing the most thorough and detailed inspection and explained what he was finding to me every step of the way. Not only that, when he heard that I had to get into contract immediately because of a bidding war on the property, he actually dropped everything and did it on Labor Day for me. He is worth every penny and then some!

was extremely responsive calling me within an hour of signing up for the deal. He coordinated well with my tenants, got in within a few days, and had the report to me within a day after the inspection. Unusually good service in a world where there is little good customer service

have inspected two very different homes for us when we have been in escrow. Plan to be with them for about 3 hours (for a ~1500sqft home). First they thoroughly inspected and tested pretty much EVERYTHING, then they uploaded their many high quality pictures onto one iPad and walked us through each picture giving us a summary and allowing ample time to ask and receive

-understandable answers, then later that night (or next day depending on appointment schedule) they sent us the full color report with the same pictures and a complete narrative, which clearly indicated which areas were safety concerns, etc. Really NICE people too!

was great! I have purchased many homes and

is the best inspector I have had. He promptly gave me his availability when I needed to schedule the inspection. He communicated to me his arrival time and was 5 minutes early, which was great.

is a true professional and has an immense amount of knowledge with how home work. He was thorough and efficient in the inspection. He took time to talk to me during the inspection when he felt I should see something. He spent a large amount of time afterwards showing me the photos and then discussing what he saw in the photo. His subsequent report came the evening of the inspection and was representative of every he discussed in person. One other piece of information I learned when talking to

he also helps train / apprentice new home inspectors, so he is well regarded among his colleagues. I strongly recommend

to inspect a home.
- JR B.

I have used this company three or four times and each experience has exceeded my expectations. Not only did the home get inspected properly but all my questions were answered in a way that I could easily understand. They came prepared, on time, and handled themselves professionally and courteously. In addition, within 24 hours, I had their written report which was thorough and provided pictures of the items in question. I would not hesitate to use this company again nor recommend them!

contacted me to set up a time for the inspection in a timely manner. Time for the appointment was convenient for me and he gave me several dates to choose from. He arrived promptly on the agreed upon day, at the specified time. He clearly and concisely explained the procedure to me. He also gave me an approximate amount of time the inspection would take. Mr.

was professional and concerned when entering my home, not tracking any dirt or debris and didn't damage any walls or carpet when accessing attic space. He had the report of the inspections completed and emailed to me later the same. I would use and recommend this company,
