I found Pat online and, after talking to him, was immediately impressed by his honesty and apparent knowledge. Pat inspected an old house in San Marcos that I ended up making an offer on. After Pat's inspection, we walked through the house and discussed the various inspection items. I have to say that Pat was very professional, has a wonderfully calm demeanor and was easy to work with. That must come in large part from knowing what he's doing inside and out." "Pat is a great communicator, patient, friendly and professional. I highly recommend calling Pat”.

Pat really knows his way around construction. His experience with construction and knowledge of the complexities of the building codes are invaluable contributions to the high quality of his work. He is thorough, knowledgeable, and helpful. Pat inspected my new condo unit before I purchased it, and found small but important details that would have been out of code if left un-repaired. I was impressed with his attention to all the details of the building, inside and out!" Thank you, Pat!

Pat Ferguson of Ferguson Inspections inspected a property that I purchased last year. His inspection and report were extremely thorough and helpful. I felt like I had the complete picture of the property's condition and I was able to use Pat's information to negotiate with the seller to make some needed repairs and also to reduce the purchase price. Pat was a joy to work with from his flexibility in scheduling the inspection to getting information from the county and contractors regarding an issue with the septic system. He went out of his way to make sure I had all of the information I needed to make the decision to purchase the property, and was always ready, willing and able to answer my questions.
Pat was a general contractor for many years and has the kind of experience I was looking for to do a property inspection. Pat worked on two major remodels of historic homes for me in the past, and clearly understands what it takes to properly construct a building or home, and to spot problems (and, just as importantly, to spot conditions that could lead to future problems).
I would definitely have Pat do future inspections for me, and have no hesitation recommending his company's inspection services to anyone.

We were thinking about purchasing our office building but had doubts about some structural issues. Pat came out and did a very thorough inspection. The next day we had a 40-page inspection report including pictures and every kind of information that you would want to know about a building. The detail in the report was amazing. And, the price was fair. From now on, if I need an inspection, Pat will get my business.

Pat Ferguson was retained by my company as an Owner’s Representative for construction of a large commercial build out. At the time that Pat came on board, a contractor was already in place. The design and pricing process was consistently being delayed and not moving forward. After Pat’s review of the documents and progress he determined that the contractor was in over his head and not qualified for the job. He recommended we replace the contractor.
After Pat’s help in interviewing and qualifying a couple of more contractors we hired a more qualified contractor. Pat’s expertise helped us communicate more effectively, and his knowledge helped us in our negotiations with the new contractor. He guided the project to a ‘within budget’ and ‘well timed completion date’, allowing our business to open on time.
Having years of experience in onsite construction, estimating and project management, Pat is extremely well versed in construction techniques and scheduling. He is very thorough and straightforward in his communication skills. We highly recommend him.

Pat Ferguson did the inspection for the condo that my daughter purchased in Austin. He is meticulous, accommodating and an honest inspector. His report was very detailed and he found issues that other inspectors probably would have missed. As a result we were able to negotiate a better purchase price. Thank you Pat! I Highly recommend him for all home inspection needs.
