" was great to work with, and I have total confidence in his abilities to identify and communicate major and minor defects in a home of any" type and age. I would recommend him for an inspection prior to purchasing a home, or to a homeowner who would like an expert to review the safety and functionality of his/her home and systems. inspected a home built in the 1830s. He started on the roof and worked his way down to the basement/crawl space and then inside. At each location he provided a running narrative of what he observed- both positive and negative. He explained terminology as needed and was always able to support his findings with explanations that were easy to understand. He focused on the materials used and their functionality in a specific location over time. He took pictures which he used to illustrate his findings both during the inspection and in the report. spent a little more than 7 hours at the inspection site. He was very thorough in completing the inspection. completed the inspection on a Friday. We had the report with his findings on Sunday. The report was easy to read and color coded to address the urgency of action needed to correct a defect or maintain a system for safety, function, energy efficiency, or longevity. He was able to provide suggested maintenance, but also encouraged us to seek other experts (chimney sweeps, masons, septic installers, plumbers) as needed in order to get appropriate quotes and services.

"I found through Yelp & Angie's list and he had great reviews on both sites, so we gave him a call. was" incredibly thorough, helpful, and genuinely seemed to care that I understood everything that we were looking at. He carefully went over every part of the house, made sure we understood the issues and what were serious issues that would require a specialist. is clearly a very experienced inspector, and I will absolutely use his services again in the future! With regards to the inspection report, provided us the completed report the same night that he conducted the inspection. The report was just as thorough and helpful as he was in person. It is a document that I will be using to plan out our home repairs / upgrades, so well worth the money. In summary, I would absolutely recommend to anyone looking for a home inspector.

home inspection, buy a house

Home Inspection

If you're preparing to buy a house, 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, as well as present and potential dangers. But remember, a home inspection is not a guarantee or a warranty - it may not find everything.

During a home inspection, what telltale signs can you watch for that the inspector might not see?

Finding lenders, real estate agents, home inspectors and other professionals you can trust is an important first step in buying a house.

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!!!

- BJ S.

(the owner of the company) did a fantastic job inspecting a house that we purchased. He was thorough, clearly knew his stuff, and explained things in a way that made sense to use. He wrote up a report quickly within 24 hours and was also available to chat on the phone afterward to further discuss his findings. The house has ...More alot of work to be completed, so he also helped us prioritize what he thought we should complete in what order (i.e. he clearly laid out which were safety concerns). We really appreciated his feedback.

- Brian D.

of theirre more that glad to have me This was the third time I've had dealings with a home inspection service within one year. Needless to say I would never deal with the previous people. These guys were on time, professional, polite and were more than glad to have me accompany them and and answer all of my questions. They also pointed out all ...More of the "issues" and "non issues" with the home. Even the real estate agent said that she was surprised by the thoroughness of their report. I purposively left the price out because there service was priceless. They save us tens of thousands of dollars in repairs.
- Joe L.

The team at is top notch. They were very prompt and thorough on the day of inspection. We received a detailed Inspection report the same day. Their follow-up and response time is impressively quick and they were flexible with our schedule. If you're looking for a team that does it right and has excellent service, look no further.
