Mr. Adams is the best! He’s extremely kind and gets the job done right, the FIRST time. I hear a lot of people have to get different inspections done with other people, not with him! He did every inspection we needed. His fees are very reasonable. He shows up when he says he will and is very communicative.
I’d recommend him any day.

We were buying a $1M+ home outside Texas and seeking the best in the US to perform the detailed home inspection on this large property. We learned of Jeff Adams of San Antonio Texas through various contacts and sought his assistance. We flew Jeff to the site. Jeff arrived with all the tools and equipment required (he uses the latest state-of-the-art technologies) and more importantly a knowledge set that far exceeded our expectations. Jeff is down to earth and will run circles around attorneys, builders and engineers. We are looking at another build project and plan on flying Jeff in to perform Phase inspections throughout the effort. If you want he best, choose Jeff.

Save yourself the time and use Jeff. We ended up in litigation for a new home construction and his inspection was far more thorough then the other inspectors. Don't look around you will not be disappointed!

I learned about Adams Home Inspection from a list Texas Association of Real Estate Inspector's (TAREI) and San Antonio Texas Association of Real Estate Inspector's (SATAREI) certified. She marked the top 3 inspectors she had worked with previously. In addition, she provided a list of questions we should use to interview multiple inspectors before selecting one. I called Jeff because he was #1 on her list.
After spending 20 minutes discussing home inspections and items to looking for with homes builders here in San Antonio, I had answers to all the questions I was supposed to ask plus more. Jeff shows a dedication to the customer and to the field of providing quality homes the homebuyers of San Antonio. I hired him immediately.
I was in the process of building a new home with a local homebuilder and he has a process to inspect the home at 5 points during the build process to ensure everything from the foundation, walls, and roof, plus everything else is to code and safe. I joined him at every inspection and he always beat me there and provided dedicated walk-through’s of the inspection and written reports within a day.
His reports and advice assisted us in having the builder make many corrections to provide a better quality finished home. We ended up not buying that house, partially due to the inspection reports but mostly because it wasn’t the right now for us. Fast forward two months and we put in an offer on another home. I called Jeff immediately and asked for him to inspect the new property. He shifted around his schedule to accommodate getting the inspection done during the option period.
He identified some structural items and other items that needed to be fixed. He recommended I have a structural engineer review the items and provide a second opinion. He was able to refer me to a structural engineer and he has been amazing. I was nervous about proceeding to close with the items he found but based upon Jeff’s advice and the structural engineer we closed on the house and hired the engineer to make the recommended changes. Jeff cares about his clients and he went above and beyond by following up with the structural engineer and going to house to discuss the inspection items and needed repairs.
I cannot recommend Jeff Adams and Adams Home inspection enough. He continually went above and beyond to ensure we had the best and most complete information we needed to make informed decisions through the process. He is responsive to calls and text messages, is very personable, and his rates are reasonable.
