Ask yourself this: With over 300 inspector choices, "Why does the owner of a prominent real estate office, 45 miles away, hire me to pre-inspect the houses he lists and those of his three grown children?" and "Why does J. Gregory Homes hire me to pre-inspect their brand new homes?"
What do you really know about the property you are buying? Will a professionally licensed tradesman with over 40 years of hands on experience perform your Residential, Commercial, EIFS, Construction Phase, Builder Warranty and Moisture Intrusion Inspections?
I offer you this and it costs no more! Considering the bigger picture. No inspector can promise a property to be in perfect condition. My promise to you "I will do my very best to inform and educate you about your property. I'll thoroughly investigate while others just look around."
I would like to thank all of my clients for their kind words. I am humbled to have each and every one as members of the ADAIR INSPECTION family. You are the reason I Love My Job! I consider referrals from our friends, clients and associates to be the greatest compliment that I could receive. Thank you for keeping my company in mind whenever a referral opportunity presents itself.
Barry, it is not easy to impress two Ph.D's but we were both impressed by the thoroughness of your inspection, your patience in explaining to us what the jargons mean, and your advice of actions. We appreciate your service and enjoyed meeting you. We will definitely keep you in mind should anyone we know is in need of an inspection. It will be my pleasure to communicate with your potential clients. You have my permission to give out my phone number and email. Contact 972-487-5634 for this information. Happy holidays to you too!

Barry Adair inspected a home that I had a contract on in January, 2007. He fully explained what he was and was not able to inspect. His photos and inspection report were very thorough and informative. I was out of the country when the inspections were made so the photos were especially helpful. He went above and beyond the call of duty to have an extended phone call late at night Dallas time (due to the 7 hour time difference) and explain the report fully. He patiently answered my many questions and explained things clearly. His fee is reasonable and I got my money's worth. I will definitely call Adair Inspection again when I put another contract on a house, which will be this spring or summer. I highly recommend him.

I must say I'm very impressed by your follow up and will be keeping your information for all future purchases in the Dallas, Texas area. We took your advice on the last opportunity and decided not to purchase such a risky property. As you know we are out of state investors and because we feel it's important to provide homes that improve our tenants' quality of life, the last opportunity totally compromised our own mission. Thank you again for the follow-up.

OMG!!! you are AWESOME! have a good weekend..talk to you soon!
Karen Baker Phoenix, AZ
Barry, I truly appreciate the time and attention you took this morning at our home. You attention to detail was phenominal. When we were speaking with the owner of the property, he was even amazed at the things you identified that his own home inspector didn't record. I will recommend you to all my clients in the market for a home or business.
Papa, Thought you'd like to see what was sent to me from Robert Scroggins. I knew you'd do a great job, but I'm very very partial to your work! Love ya Grizz Cubb
Thank you for giving me your dad's number. I am truly grateful that he took such good care of Jenny and I. He did a phenominal job today and I can't thank him enough. I have never seen someone in his arena that is as thorough as he is. I have worked with a lot of inspectors, and he earns every bit of his pay!
Robert Scroggins Carrollton, TX
Hi Barry, Misty and I are happy with the inspection. You not only spent hours inspecting and writing detailed reports, but you instructed us on many home specifics we were unaware of. You answered all of our questions honestly. We feel more confident moving into the new house. This inspection is a small investment that must be made if you're going to potentially live in the place for 30 years ...and spend mucho cash!!! ...Oh, by the way, thanks for the link to my business site! I will do the same for you after I get moved. Thanks again,
Greg & Misty Hitchcox Heartland, TX
Barry, good evening. Thank you for being in court today. You once again have provided us with excellent services. I want to express my personal thanks for you going beyond the call to get the report and photos to us so late and after regular hours. Retrieving our report documents and photos out of your storage after midnight on a Sunday and having copies in our lawyers' office for legal preperation Monday morning was beyond the call.We are very appreciative and this helps us a great deal!
There was not an invoice attached for today's expert testimony in court. Would you mind re-sending that for our files? I'll get a check out to you in the mail today.
P.S. We will recommend you to anyone we know who needs a house inspection, moisture inspection, etc. these types of services that you provide are truly a mark of a professional and you work to be an asset to your clients. Thank you again.
J. Burgess Dallas, TX
Barry, you are the greatest is my opinion. I would like to help you get the word out to others that need the work.
Mike Frye Kansas City , MO
Barry, I thought you did an exceptional job today and will be contacting you with question's as they arise, through out this decision making process. Thank you once again for coming out today. It was a pleasure working with you, and I will be sure to recommend you to any one I know looking for an inspector.
Kevin Atamah Allen,TX
Hi Barry, thank you so much for being so thorough with the inspection. I could never have imagined there was so much to look for or that you would find so many items that needed repair in a brand new home. I have already highly recommended you to several others.
Rodney Dauphin Crandell,TX
Mr. Adair,Thank you very much for your service and all of your help! I will definitely refer back to your business in the future and for any other people I know who are in need of an inspection. I appreciate your thoroughness and taking the time to further explain your findings. If you would please forward the information you have given me to my realtors. Hope you have a good day! Thanks again,
Heather Alford Royse City, TX
Hello everyone! I just wanted to take this time to show my appreciation to all of you and everything you did to help me purchase my home. It means the world to me. Thank you all!
R. Gonzales Richardson, TX
Thank you for taking the time to educate me and thoroughly inspect the house today in Bedford. The report you provided is excellent and has been forwarded to the owner. I have asked him to submit in writing the repairs noted in the report, before we will honor the purchase of the home. He has agreed to fulfill his obligation. Without your keen eye and expertise, we would surely have made a mistake by buying the house "AS IS". Your service will save us large dollars and ultimately keep us safe from physical or financial harm. I will be sharing my experience and your contact information with everyone I know that is buying a home and am happy to be a reference for you should it be desired.
Wayne and Robin Wilder Bedford, TX
In the past you provided me with an invaluable service of inspecting my EIFS clad home. I greatly appreciated your professional services and attitude!

Barry, Thank you so much for coming to my rescue on such short notice.
Olympia Reyes Mission, TX
Barry,Thanks for your report...very complete and nicely done. Any recommendations on firms that I could contract to do the fixing? I have a general contractor guy, but I'd like a EFIS/Roofing/flashing expert.
Barry, Thank you very much for your diligent work and report! Regards,
