Inspection Services

Standard Property Inspections- This is the standard home inspection that uses the required Texas Real Estate Commission (TREC) form REI-7A. This is a top to bottom, inside and outside inspection that includes the structure, roof, plumbing and electrical systems, and the heating and air conditioning (HVAC) system. Other items include the doors, windows, walls, ceilings, fixtures, appliances, and attic/crawl space. This inspection will give you a very detailed account of the current condition of the property and its systems. This inspection includes a FREE! Wood Destroying Insects Report (WDI)! PLEASE NOTE: As part of a home inspection I DO NOT inspect the following:Temperature Pressure Relief Valves (TPRV) on water heaters, smoke and carbon monoxide detectors, clay or concrete tile roofs, pools/spas/ septic or well systems, washing machine and refrigerator water control valves in vacant homes. Condo inspections encompass only the interior of the unit. Please let me know if you have any questions regarding this disclosure.

New Construction Inspections- Even though all new homes go through a series of inspections by local authorities and some builders even hire 3rd party inspections, a new home inspection will give you an independent, unbiased inspection of the property. This inspection follows the same rigorous standards of the Standard Property Inspection. This inspection also includes a FREE! WDI report!

Repair Inspections- After having performed either the Standard or New Home Inspection, this is service is offered to inspect items that were negotiated upon after the first inspection. Only the items asked to inspect will be re-inspected for repair and reported as repaired in a professional work-man like manner, not performed well, or not performed at all. Protect yourself and ensure that the repairs you have negotiated for have been performed and performed well.

Wood Destroying Insect (WDI) Reports- Termites and other wood destroying insects can cause severe damage to a property if undetected and not treated. This report uses the Structural Pest Control Board (SPCB) standard form and will provide valuable information regarding any current or previous termite activity and determine what conducive conditions exist that will enhance the ability for termites and other wood destroying insects the ability to cause damage to your house. This service is performed FREE! for Standard and New Home Inspections (not including condos unless specifically requested), and can be contracted as a stand alone inspection.

iPhone Facetime Review- This service is for out of town clients or anyone who cannot physically be at the inspection. After I complete my inspection of the property, we will connect via iPhone Facetime and I will walk you through the house in order to show you some issues in real time. This is meant to be a review and not another inspection. We will not be able to see everything that is in the report but rather the "highlights". This review does not include climbing on the roof or under the house, if applicable. This review should last no longer than an hour.
