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!!!

Came on time, was professional and helpful. Pointed out several things that weren't expensive to fix and which ones we could do later. We did this as a preemptive strike in case we wanted to sell the house once the kids were all gone.

showed up promptly and began what was a very thorough inspection. Never once did he seem hurried or bothered by our questions. He took as much time as was needed to go through the home and then take my wife and I around to point out the issues he felt were important. He was very knowledgable about all of the areas of the home. His report was prompt, well detailed and thought out. This home will be my third and

gave a very thorough inspection of the home we were planning to purchase. He set up his computer work station in the kitchen then got right to work. He was with us for 4 hours. In that time he inspected every inch of the interior and exterior of the house plus tested the electrical outlets. He compiled a comprehensive report in a binder with photographs for us to share with any future contractors that we might hire to make repairs. The binder also included coupons for home services from other companies plus a dvd all about home maintenance.

This is the 2nd home inspection
Winston Salem Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
has done for me (the other was 4 yrs ago). He is very professional and knowledgeable. He explains things at a level a normal consumer understands. Very thorough, takes his time and is not bothered when you ask questions. He was able to come within a couple of days of my calling for an appointment. His rates are reasonable and he emails the report shortly after as well as sending a hard copy.

Mr.
Winston Salem Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
was on my realtor's list of inspectors but was also on Angie's List. He was the only one who answered his own phone right away. The others took hours to return my call for an appointment. I did not have much flexibility in my travel to get the inspection done. He was there before I was and got started right away (my Realtor let him in). I knew some of the major items before I left the property. The report was detailed and easy to read. The email format is great too. I would recommend to anyone buying a home in the Triad.

is the best in the area of home inspections. I would call him 'board certified' which he is a member/a director of ASHI and other types of societies of home inspectors. Mr.

Mr.
Winston Salem Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
Guy was punctual, presented his business card upon arrival, and asked if we had any concerns before starting. He did a whole-house inspection... exterior (including roof, deck & crawlspace) and interior (including garage & attic). He talked to us about specific areas of concerns and offered solutions to our problems. We had a full report via e-mail the next morning. We were totally impressed and pleased with his services and professionalism. We also like the fact that his services don't stop the day of service, as he is there for any further questions we may have.
