Adair is a home builder that offers 'lower prices' because the new homeowner has a list of items they can do themselves to save on the price of the house. Those items were to be things like calling to get the power turned on, calling to get the water connected, calling to confirm that licenses were received things like that. Somehow during all of this their policy expanded to include safety of their crew, cleanliness, poor craftmanship and weather.

Adair homes has an answer for everything that goes wrong, they will tell you "It's the Owners responsibility to take care of that." We paid Adair over $190,000.00 and we still have more than 3 truck loads of insulation, drywall, trim pieces, carpet and padding, nails, screws, pop cans (from their workers), lunch bags (from their workers)and scrap wood to haul off our property.

We complained to the construction department that there were problems with the builders tracking things into the house and throwing their personal garbage in the yard and they told us " You signed the contract, it's your responsibility to keep the job site clean." What about the urine in the toilet the day we moved in?? Is it my job to flush the toilet after the construction crews leave??

So, we took days off from work to supervise THEIR workers and were told by the construction crews, " We aren't allowed to take directions from the homeowners, we can only do what Adair says to do according to our paperwork." What ?? Needless to say, we have lived in our new home for one month now and we have seams in the carpet that are separating, lumps under our vinyl that will eventually poke through and a crawl space full of water.

Who do we call? We called the construction department of Adair and were told that " A final inspection was done on your home, it passed, the problems now are something you need to deal with." So, as homeowners if you build a house with Adair, don't expect to be able to have any say in what goes on or what they do during the construction of your home. They are very quick to lay blame and very fast to bypass complaints.

AUTHOR: Barry - (U.S.A.)

link this to my company www.adairinspection.com I would ask the RIPOFF REPORT site owners to acknowledge this fact and print my client testimonials as my only rebuttal recourse unless they can somehow remove the link reference so the spiders don't link this to my company, bad for my legitimate business and I'd hate to waste either of our time with attorneys.


I would like to thank all of my clients and associates 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 is a very professional at what he does. He looks out for "you" the potential home buyer. Delivering great client service is what I do and Barry is a very important part of that equation. Great Results, Expert, High Integrity

Robert Clayton Real Estate Southlake, TX

* 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 have known Barry Adair for many years. He has inspected and assisted with remodeling work on at least four of my properties over these years. I find Barry to be highly knowledgeable, very friendly and courteous, and extremely professional. I highly recommend Barry to assist others with their inspection and other real estate construction and remodeling needs.

Hi Barry: This is long overdue, but just wanted to let you know how much we appreciated the information you provided for my daughter's first home purchase. You were so thorough and very patient answering all of our questions. I've owned many homes over the years, but learned more from you than in any previous inspection. Of course, you were right about everything and we are now getting ready to close after the seller made extensive repairs. The seller had a termite policy, so I didn't get to use your vendor list, however, the exterminator made them remove all questionable wood while he was there and we feel like all areas of concern were addressed.
Also, there should be a special award for the patience you exhibited by answering the seller's questions, questions and more questions. We came very close to walking away because they either didn't understand or didn't want to understand the meaning of the term "wood destroying insects", wood rot and water intrusion.
Tomorrow I'm going to contact companies from your vendor list for tree removal at our home in Southlake. Thanks again for giving us the peace of mind that my daughter is now making a wise choice in buying a home that has been returned to tiptop shape!
Please feel free to share my name with anyone that would like a reference.

C. Fickes Southlake, TX

* Barry, Hello. It was my pleasure to have you perform the inspection on the property. Thank you for your professionalism--simply outstanding attention to detail that only master of building trades can bring!

Arron Hepfer Prosper, TX

* 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.

B. Hopkins CA May 7, 2008

* Barry's skills and knowledge of home inspection is both wide and deep. He's one of the most capable inspectors I know, in both the residential and commercial fields. He has my absolute and complete confidence.

Kenton Sheppard Owner, Peak to Prairie Inspection Service Denver, CO

* 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.

Justin Burgess Dallas, TX

* Barry, please add us to your long list of appreciative testimonials I have read on your site.
* Your knowledge of EIFS stucco, attention to detail in your inspection saved us from making an expensive mistake.
* We appreciate your commitment in doing what you say you will do, by personally delivering our inspection report to us the same night of the process.
* We certainly would refer anyone to you knowing they would receive the very best service. Thanks,

Charles & Jerrice Pratt, Midland,Tx

Barry, Thank you for allowing me to attend Friday's EIFS inspection. As always, I leave your inspections with quite a bit learned !! With Friday's inspection I have a new confidence in being able to perform an initial inspection on an EIFS clad home and knowing when to refer the client to an EIFS specialist. Again, thank you for allowing me to attend! Please feel free to use this as a testimonial as you see fit.

Emmanuel Scanlan TEXAS Professional Real Estate Inspector TREC #7593 05/09/2008

* Barry, Just wanted to thank you for the great job you did on the inspection of the house on Cheyenne in Irving. The information you gathered for us gave us something to negotiate with. We ended up paying $10,000.00 less than what we had originally offered! I think we maybe could have gone a little under that, but my dad didn't want to risk losing out. We received the keys yesterday. My dad's last inspector (different house) took about 30 minutes to inspect the house, and besides the money he saved up front, there was no real value. Your 3 hour inspection of the house was very thorough and gave us a better idea of what we were getting into and what repairs would need to be made. As they say, you get what you pay for. Also, I wanted to ask about anyone you knew who filled in swimming pools that you would recommend. We have decided to fill it in as it needs to much work to be repaired or replaced. Also we need an electrician for the rewiring if you know
a good one. My dad has someone in mind, but I thought I would ask you as well. Barry, just wanted to thank you once again for your great work and great attitude as well, my family really appreciated it. We will be happy to refer you to anyone we know who needs a quality inspector.

Sincerely, Nahum Razo 05/13/08

* Recently my wife and I had our house inspected with mainly questions concerning our exterior which is EIFS. Barry Adair was very helpful in answering all of our questions and was able to direct us with proper maintenance tips. We live a good distance from the Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex, but Mr. Adair still showed up exactly when he said he would. I would definitely recommend Adair Inspection to anyone who is needing the services listed on the website.

Cody and Celize Murray Windom,Tx. 04-23-08

* I converse quite a bit on the NACHI.org message board and I have learned quite a bit from Barry's past posts. Seeing (on a daily basis) Barry's posts and his knowledge of homes and their components, I highly recommend his HI services to anyone in his area who is seeking a professional Home Inspector. Great Results, Personable, Expert

David Valley Owner of Massachusetts Home Inspections

* 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!

R.H. Smith, CPA Plano, TX

* Mr Adair, My name is Candi and I had spoken with you a few weeks ago about Michael Bilodeau, a stucco repair person on your website. I wanted to let you know that I did use him for my repair and he did a wonderful job. He is very professional, shows up on time, cleans up when he leaves, gets the job done in the time he stated he would, and requires no payment until the work is completed. His work is impeccable and I highly recommend him. I just wanted to give you some feedback as you told me that you did not know him but had heard good things about him. Again, thank you for your time, and I am so glad his name was on your website and if you have any clients who need stucco repair he is definately a reputible contractor to recommend.

Take good care,
Candi Callegan
