"
was recommended to me by an acquaintance. Since I am new to Virginia Beach and purchasing a home I wanted to be certain I would be happy" with the recommendation, so of course I checked them out on Angies LIst. The reviews answered any questions I had about quality, service and price and after completion of the home inspection I also would highly recommend this company.
and
arrived on time and wasted no time 'getting down to business'. They were professional, thorough and explained things in terms I could understand. Once all was completed, they did a very thorough verbal report and by evening I had a comprehensive and detailed report available online. This is an excellent, knowledgeable and professional company I would have no hesitation recommending or using again.

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 arrived at our new home 20 minutes early to find Mr.

Brand already there. Mr.

had already looked over the roof and outdoor areas. We were greeted with a smile and lots of hand shakes. He even chit chatted with our six year old son while we were waiting on our realtor to arrive. He was very thorough while he looked over the entire house. We had a very small attic space but that did not stop him from looking everything over. He was EXTREAMLY knowledgable with what he saw and what needed to be corrected. Mr.

I contacted
Virginia Beach Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
to conduct a pre-purchase home inspection on a residential property in an exclusive area of Virginia Beach, Va. I did not use the "home inspection specialist" suggested by the real estate broker.
I telephonically contacted several firms on Angie's List and Yelp. I have some knowledge of building construction and have no patience for "home inspectors" that obtained their credentials in two days and were not general contractors. I talked to

at
Virginia Beach Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
and when he said "I work for you, not the broker or the seller" and I know local building codes and required specifications, I knew I had the right company.
He and his associate,

, and he provided a full

for me when we crawled under the house. He took time to point out foundation concerns, damp areas, damaged and loose insulation and rodent invasion. He even pointed out poor electrical work that had been installed for a tenant's hot tub...the 220 volt cable was laying in water! Later he and
Virginia Beach Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
went through the attic, found insulation problems, soffit's blocked off, rodent infestation, poor building craftsmanship and venting mistakes.
He was unbiased and scientific in approach; he would say an item meets code, but is not satisfactory and found problems I would have overlooked..an unvented gas fireplace, inappropriate range vent hood, windows inop, toilet vent stacks closed off; etc.
His final report was inclusive, with photos pointing out defects and areas needing repair. I had the report online within the day!!!
I sent his report to good friend, a residential building contractor in California. He is a retired Lt. from a major city Fire Department.
He reviewed the

Report and said "forget about this house, it's a money pit....... I truly believe

should double their fee. They saved me at least $100,000 and a year of grief. They were fair to the seller and did a responsible job.

I am very dissatisfied with the inspection performed by
Virginia Beach Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
's
Virginia Beach Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
in Virginia Beach VA.
The inspector spent about half the inspection time talking on the phone. In fact, when he was on the ladder inspecting the roof and gutters, he took a phone call. Because of his inattention and phone call distractions, he did not find a number of serious defects. The faucets in both upstairs bathrooms were leaking and resulted in damage to the ceiling on the first floor. When I pointed the water stains on the ceiling, he said that it was not a problem. There were dog feces and urine stains on the carpet under the beds and sofas. Also, the thermostat wire from the thermostat to the AC unit was damaged. This has cost me thousands of dollars to repair.
The inspectors manner was rude and he got angry whenever I asked him to check something or to modify an item in his report. He kept saying, from the moment he got out of the car, " I have two more inspections after this one so I don't have a lot of time".
The inspector was very unprofessional. He should have turned off his phone and given full attention to the inspection of my house instead of dealing with with issues from other inspections.
After numerous emails and phone calls,
Virginia Beach Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
finally called me back. I explained my dissatisfaction and asked to have the inspection fee refunded because I did not receive the inspection I paid for due to the inspector's inattention and being on the phone so much.
Virginia Beach Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
said he would consider my request and get back to me. To date he has not gotten back to me despite my repeated calls to him.

It went great.
Virginia Beach Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
came in and went through the house very thoroughly. He told he was going to be a nitpicker and he certainly was (which we appreciated). Most of the things he noticed were minor and not a big deal, but we were able to negotiate a few items because of his warnings. His report was available online soon after the inspection (within 24-48 hours) and it was very thorough. After he did the inspection, he hung around and showed us a lot of what he was talking about, which was much appreciated. We were very happy with his work.

did an extremely thorough inspection of the interior and exterior of the home, providing detailed recommendations on areas that need to be improved and damage that we didn't even know we had (bad news, I know, but good to know in advance!). His professionalism was exceptional, he completed the inspection in a timely manner and was very respectful of our space. His use of IT-based tools and easy-to-read formatted report was appreciated.
