"My husband and I are currently in the process of selling our home. After going under contract in the beginning of
, we had an inspection" done by
of
for our potential buyers. A list of concerns is completely normal post-home inspection and it's what we expected from owning and maintaining an older home; providing completely false information, however, and leaving our home damaged afterwards is totally unprofessional and offensive. We are in the possession of detailed before and after photos from
's inspection in which the property damage is notated to more than one area. From peeled caulk around MOST windows and doors to kicking up the paint/stain on our deck, our house was was treated poorly and NO efforts were made to put things back the way the were before after NO concerns were found in those areas. In addition to property damage, the inspector estimated our roof to be TWENTY years old, which ABSOLUTELY flabbergasted my husband and I so much so that we paid a certified roofer to come inspect & write a letter letting us know his professional opinion on the age of the roof which was EIGHT years old. Nearly identical situation to our water heater, windows and so on.. I believe that
falsified information and TRASHED our home in order to gain the trust of the buyers so they would feel "safe" with him, leading to re-hiring him for their next potential home purchase and even referrals. We are not the first to have a negative with this inspector specifically who's integrity is compromised. We are, however, the first to leave a review.. I hope this will change to increase awareness. Buyers keep this in mind AND sellers beware- I would ask for a TOTALLY different inspector of your buyers choosing, of course. I know as an individual who is looking to purchase a home after selling our current residence that I would want someone performing our inspection who is presenting HONEST issues and performing his/her tasks professionally.. this was absolutely not the case for our previous buyers. We are extremely disappointed and when our jobs bring us back to this area we would NEVER use this company/inspector in the future.

"What a team!
and his team are consummate professionals. They were on time, checked all components of the house, including the roof, attic" and very difficult crawl space. They explained some issues as they went along. After the team completed their inspection, they pulled up the pictures that were taken and went through to explain what they had found. They answered all of my questions as they were going through the pictures in a manner that a
could understand. We had the final written report that afternoon. The report was easy to read and understand. Color coded so you knew what was a major issue (red), what was something to watch (blue) and what was in good condition (green). The informaiton in the report coincided with the actual pictures taken. The report was very thorough. A week later we had a question regarding the report, sent an email and had an immediate response. This company is a class act. I would definitely recommend them to friends and family. Thank you
and team! We were impressed with your professionalism and expertise!!!

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.

What is a home inspection and is it worth it?

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!!!

The owner of this company was a pleasure to work with and it all went smoothly Everything was explained to me clearly in detail in person at the time of the inspection and then I received a thorough PDF file with pictures.

We have hired

I definitely recommend these guys! I am in the process of purchasing a house and needed a high quality inspection to be done on my future home. There were three inspectors that arrived on time and performed a 2-hour inspection. They worked as a team dividing the responsibilities and making sure that they covered all the basis. I was shadowing
Virginia Beach Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
and he answered all the questions I had and made recommendations on maintenance of the vital systems of the house. I am very happy with the service. I received the report the same evening and after reviewing it I had few more questions. The next day I called their office and
Virginia Beach Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
spent about 30 minutes with me on the phone going over all the items I had questions about. Thank you very much for shared knowledge and your expertise.

The house I was buying is a bank owned home which means it is being sold "as is". The bank won't even make repairs required by my lender for me to get a loan. While inspecting the house
Virginia Beach Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
found termites on the second floor all the way into the attic. From what I understand a termite company does not have to go inside the house if it's on a crawl and doesn't have a garage. If I hired a termite company and they gave me a clear letter I would of been stuck buying the house with thousand of dollars in repairs. I can only imagine the damage that is
Virginia Beach Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
inside the walls. I was very pleased that
Virginia Beach Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
offers a termite and moisture inspection as well as their whole house inspection, it was well worth the extra money. The rest of the house was inspected but after finding out about the termites the other things were frivolous. I did not purchase the house and I hope whoever does has a diligent home inspector like

and his team were extremely professional and thorough with their inspection. My wife and I purchased a new home and didn't get an inspection since it was "new." I really wish we had gotten

Could not have asked for a more professional and straight forward person to work with. There wasn't an inch of that house and property that he didn't cover and found a few things the owners were not aware of they we worked into the purchase price of the home. If you are looking for an honest, thorough survey that has the buyers best interest at heart... then

When my daughter and I met with
Virginia Beach Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
at the property for the original inspection he seemed very professional and knowledgeable, ensuring us that he wanted to make sure the home was safe for us. We were there during the entire inspection which resulted in a number of items on the list of required repairs, all of which he said could be easily fixed. I reiterated to him over and over that my biggest concerns were the roof, plumbing, and electrical since they were high cost items. I was told that the roof was only about 5 yrs old and fine other than a ridge vent done incorrectly and a joist that needing bracing. The only comment on the plumbing was a slow drain in a shower, lifting the hot water tank to an appropriate height, and adjustment of the temperature in the showers. There were some minor electrical fixes for a ceiling fan, GFCI's, and lack of an outlet. He also indicated that there was apparently a raccoon's nest in the attic at one time and that feces, etc. needed to be cleaned out, which include removal of old insulation and new insulation installed. This house was a flip and most of the items were just laziness, stupidity, or poor workmanship according to the inspector. But
Virginia Beach Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
made my daughter and I feel comfortable that he found the issues and they could be fixed and they'd re-inspect to make sure the repairs were done.
Virginia Beach Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
did not make the re-inspection and instead a guy named
Virginia Beach Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
was there to review the repairs (no business card given, so I don't have a full name) and the 'perceived' level of professionalism was not the same. He supposedly went through the house, reviewing the list and said the items were complete other than the ridge vent needed to be nailed down in one spot, which was going to be take care of that day. I specifically asked him about many of the of items, and most specifically if the raccoon mess had been cleaned up. He looked me directly in the eye and said yes. We have now lived in the house exactly 4 weeks. The first rain that came revealed a roof leak because the seal around a vent was pretty much non-existent. I climbed up on the roof with the repair guy and was given a tour of all the issues with the roof (most of which I could tell were issues without his expertise, therefore the inspector should have caught this). The entire roof needs to be replaced, including the wood paneling underneath the shingles because it is bowing terribly in many spots. The shingles don't cover the
Virginia Beach Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
of the roof in may spots, allowing for water to get in at the
Virginia Beach Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
of the roof-line. A week later, the shower backed up (same shower noted in inspection). When a plumber crawled under the house, he noted that half of the plumbing was bowed and lying on the ground rather than strapped up (again, I crawled under the house and could easily tell this wasn't right - no need for his expertise). Strike two for the inspector. This morning I had an air duct inspector come out because the first time I turned on the A/C, water started leaking from the ceiling. This is because the main line for condensation is not properly routed out of the attic. Imagine my lack of surprise, however, when I climbed into the attic with these guys and could see that the old feces/urine infested insulation had never been removed from the attic, nor the rotten corpse left behind. I could also see the joist that was noted in the inspection had not been fixed and one of the ducts to Heater/AC unit was lying there with a gaping hole. At this point, I am livid because I asked a direct question during the absolutely worthless re-inspection and was lied to. Must I say strike three? So after 4 weeks in the home, a total of $7,500 in repairs SO FAR for items that should have been caught, were caught originally and should have been fixed (or caught in the re-inspection) I am wondering if there is any legal recourse for this. Especially since the roof will be several thousand dollars as well. For the record, the home warranty that was given and raved about by the realtors has been worthless because all of these issues were the result of shoddy workmanship. My daughter and I feel completely scammed and I want other people to be aware. I'm calling an electrician next, lest the house burn down the next time I turn on a light.

I chose
Virginia Beach Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
to accomplish an inspection two weeks ago for a home we are about to purchase based on 100% positive reviews on Google and Angie's List. The reviews are completely accurate and the experience was very positive. First of all, booking the appointment was very easy. I visited his website where I could look at the schedule online and book an appointment based on both of our availability. I got a phone call and email from
Virginia Beach Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
within the hour to discuss and confirm the appointment.
Virginia Beach Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
and
Virginia Beach Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
showed up on time and went right to work. The entire inspection was unbelievably thorough. We really want to buy this home so we were hoping that everything would check out, but we also wanted to have a full understanding of the property's condition. I walked around with
Virginia Beach Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
, and he was identifying and observing conditions that I would never even consider. I understand he does this for a living, but I guarantee other inspectors do not employ close to the same level of detail. I say "guarantee" because went on a home inspection when buying my condo several years ago, and that inspector didn't address or even look at a fraction of the items that
Virginia Beach Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
did. In fact, the seller of this property had an inspection accomplished in order to list the property about a month before
Virginia Beach Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
came, and offered me that inspector's report as a courtesy. The seller's report identified a leak in a rooftop vent as the only discrepancy or condition worth identifying.
Virginia Beach Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
's report identified 11 discrepancies and 16 other disclosures.
The overall condition of the property was very good, and had been kept up and maintained very well.
Virginia Beach Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
praised the property in that respect, and he made me a much more informed consumer by identifying noteworthy conditions and providing commentary on them, even if they weren't problems or discrepancies. He has also been available to answer my questions since the inspection. His price was competitive and comparable with others in the area, so for that reason his value is completely unbeatable.
I wouldn't use or recommend another home inspector.
