The A/D Team were exceptionally knowledgeable, polite, professional, and prompt. If you are looking for an inspector to check out a home prior to purchase, this is the company you want to hire. If you want to know potential inspection pitfalls prior to listing a house, this is the company you want to hire. If you want to be able to negotiate a lower selling price, the report that you receive will provide all the negotiating leverage you will need. They were also very patient and understanding. The initial inspection could only be done partially since we could not find out where crawl space access was (it was under a hamper in the bathroom). Could not get up to the attic because a huge tool box blocked the access. But since they were there they did what they could. We experienced a major freeze/ice storm, so we had to wait until temps got back up above freezing to complete the attic and crawlspace inspection. Darrell is more than the typical home inspector. He has an incredible knowledge of construction, codes, and standards from decades in the construction business. He also has the professional ability to be non-judgmental and provide a non-biased opinion about the installation or construction processes that were used. He is very thorough, with a particular emphasis on anything that could pose a safety issue. Darrell also possesses an innate ability to teach and explain in terms that could be understood by a non-construction person such as myself. He also breaks each finding down to a "safety/danger" issue, a "need to check/assess further", a "need to repair/replace" or a "maintenance" issue. An outside circuit box with an open punch out where a kid could place a stick and get electrocuted is a safety issue (he's that thorough) Cracks in the brick with displacement and associated cracks in the stem wall need to be evaluated by a structural engineer--that is an example of the "need to assess" further. A roof trashed from hail is an example of the need to repair/replace Missing weatherstripping or insulation around pipes is the example of a maintenance issue. Unfortunately, he found all of the above and much more. Even with all the issues found, Darrell wasn;t judgmental. He said it was all repairable, it just was a matter of economics and time. He clearly left any decision up to me. His report, complete with explanations, pictures, arrows, circles was 51 pages long. We opted not to purchase the property and backed out of the contract. We'll eat the inspection fees, but it will be a very small price to pay to avoid purchasing a house that appeared nice on the surface, but would have caused significant issues down the road. If you want a real home inspection done, use A/D Home inspections. It will be money well spent.
