Profile
ARS Home Inspections


A Home Inspection is a risk management tool that pays for itself many times over. Home inspections guard and protect both buyers and sellers. For most buyers purchasing a home is the largest outlay of cash they will ever make, a home inspection is part of a smart, most informed buying decision. For sellers, avoid having a wet blanket thrown on a potential sale by having a pre-listing inspection. Addressing problems before hand makes attaining top dollar more likely. With any home inspection what you are paying for is an opinion, I believe I have better/ expert opinions because I've done the actual work. I have 30 plus years of industrial building experience. I put myself through night school ( BS Mgmt 2013 ) by remodeling houses. For over 30+ yrs. I have been the person crafting solutions to the problems revealed by a home inspection. I entered the home inspection field after having so many family/ friends get skunked purchasing a home, this job is a calling and mission to me.

Review by in Huntsville, AL
Project: Inspect a Home
I hired ARS home inspection to complete a home inspection prior to the expiration of the 12-month builder warranty on my home. He spent approximately 2.5 hours conducting an inspection on a 5 BR/5 BA 3500 square foot home. This is the largest home I have owned and the inspection took about half the time most have in the past. He missed multiple issues, some of which I called him back to add to his report. The issues he missed were structural in nature such as a sinking foundation area and water erosion next to and underneath the HVAC pad. I would not recommend ARS at all.

Jim is a loving man who knows his stuff! He was so caring to listen to all my questions. And boy did I have a lot of questions and concerns! His listening ear, background in the technical and engineering field, with many years of experience in the construction field, and his care for me and my house (Lord willing), make him one of the best home inspectors in the Huntsville area. I highly recommend Jim Hammond! :)

Project: Inspect a Home
We own a real estate investment business and have used ARS for many home inspections over the past few years. Mr. Hammond is definitely the best we've worked with. Jim is honest, trustworthy, very knowledgeable and extremely customer focused. Jim is always willing to take extra time to explain (sometimes complex) issues in a way that is easy to understand. I would highly recommend ARS to any homeowner who needs a professional home inspection service!

Project: Inspect a Home
Jim takes great care to thoroughly explain technical issues most lay people wouldn't understand like myself. His technical and engineering background helps him understand how things are built and how things should not be built. He is very knowledgeable, reliable, and we trust him intrinsically. Jim offers up different ways to solve an issue and in the long run will save you a lot of $$ and frustration. I highly recommend him.

Review by in Arab, AL
Project: Inspect a Home
We hired Jim couple months back for a inspection. He did a overall okay job but we were aggregated that he didn t go in the attic or the crawl space to inspect it because he said he can t fit . He also didn t inspect the water heater because it was incased in the wall but all you have to do is unscrew the door it has 6 screws and pull it to the side. It took me 2 minutes to unscrew it, it wasn t very hard at all. These are all pretty important so I was upset that they weren t inspected just felt a lack of effort. Other than that he was okay he was very friendly the process went smooth. I guess you get what you pay for.

Seal of Approval

What is the screening process that Service Professionals go through in order to become members of the HomeAdvisor network?

  1. Verify Trade License
    HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.
  2. Verify Insurance
    As a part of our screening process, we encourage professionals to carry general liability insurance. We require coverage for hundreds of services.
  3. Verification of State Business Filings
    For business types that require a Secretary of State filing, we confirm that the business is in good standing in the state in which it is located.
  4. Criminal Records Search
    HomeAdvisor uses 3rd party data sources to conduct a criminal search for any relevant criminal activity associated with the owner/principal of the business.
  5. Sex Offender Search
    We confirm that the owner/principal is not listed on the official state Sex Offender web site in the state in which the owner/principal of the company is located.
  6. Bankruptcy Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the history of the principal/owner of the business for bankruptcy filings by or against them.
  7. Legal Search for Civil Judgments
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for state level civil legal judgments entered against them.
  8. Liens Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for liens placed against them.
  9. Identity Verification (SSN)
    HomeAdvisor verifies the social security number(s) of the owner/principal for identity check purposes. This check applies primarily to smaller business entities.
  10. Identity Verification (Reverse Phone Lookup)
    We conduct a reverse business phone lookup to identify records matching the phone number information provided by the business.



NOTE: Member service professional information confirmed as described above may change or expire over time; while HomeAdvisor attempts to maintain accurate and up-to-date information, and confirms changes when notified, we cannot guarantee that profile and screening information is accurate.
