Comprehensive Home Inspection Services
The home inspection process is the visual assessment of a home’s physical structure and utility systems, from the roof all the way down to the foundation. Our certified home inspectors evaluate the overall condition of the property, including:
Basic Thermal Imaging
Digital Foundation Inspection
Both interior and exterior of the house
Electrical and plumbing components
Heating, venting, and cooling system
Central air conditioning system
Roof and attic
Any visible insulation
Walls, ceilings, and floors
Windows and doors
In Texas, the Texas Real Estate Commission (TREC) regularly publishes the Standards of Practice and Code of Ethics that outlines and provides guidelines as to what should be expected during a home inspection and what should constitute an ideal report.
Why Schedule an Inspection Before Buying a Home?
Purchasing a house is one of the biggest financial investments you will ever make. A certified home inspection provides detailed knowledge of the home’s condition, as well as:
- Necessary minor upgrades or repairs
- Major repairs that must be addressed
- Any builder oversights
- Ongoing maintenance requirements
How Much Does a Home Inspection Typically Cost?
The fees associated with certified home inspections vary based on geography, distance, territory, and the type of inspection required. There are several factors involved such as size of the home, age of the home, building materials, and the home’s market value. Optional services such as septic inspections, termite inspections, or sewer scopes generally cost extra but are sometimes included in an inspection package.
While there is not one set cost for home inspections, it is possible to publish estimates. For example, Angie’s List is a popular site for local services. Average inspection costs are a little under $500. They may range from less than $400 to over $500 for average houses. Remember, the cost should not deter you from scheduling a home inspection. This is by far the best way to prevent you from spending thousands of dollars in unexpected or surprising repairs.
What’s Included In An Inspection Report?
With the use of our state-of-the-art software, our certified home inspectors create the inspection report on site. These reports must clearly identify the property’s components and its systems, as observed by the inspectors themselves. A thorough inspection report will include the following information, along with detailed photos:
Structural components, including foundation and framing
Exterior features, such as siding, walkways, and porches
Plumbing equipment, such as drains, pipes, and water heaters
Heating and cooling system, including ventilation, energy sources, and other equipment
Interior features like walls, floors, windows, doors, and stairs
Insulation and ventilation
Fireplaces, vents, and chimneys
A finalized inspection report will be available to you within 24 hours of the inspection.
Choose On-Site or Virtual Report Review
Once the home inspection is complete, you can choose an on-site, in-person review or a virtual report review. With the in-person review, our inspectors will review the results of the home inspection with you at the home, once the inspection is complete. A virtual report review is conducted over Zoom, giving you the option to safely review the report virtually.
