If you're buying a home, it is smart to get it inspected during the option period. Not doing so could cost you thousands of dollars in unforeseen issues down the road. If something turns up you may be able to negotiate concessions. Or if it's something larger, you're able to get out of buying the home fairly inexpensively.
If you're thinking of putting your home on the market, getting a home inspection before listing it can help you be better prepared for negotiations when you get an offer. There may be bigger issues you didn't know about or minor issues that can be easily fixed. This information can help you be better prepared when negotiating with buyers and their agents.
If you're building a new home, a pre-drywall inspection is recommended. We check many components from plumbing to electrical as well as structural items. Once the drywall goes up, many of these items will never be seen again so it is the only time to ensure things were done properly. .
Most brand new homes come with a 1 year warranty on the entire home. This is similar to a bumper to bumper warranty for a car. In that first year, the house may settle, cracks may appear, and the performance of certain components may be impacted. We'll come in, check it all out, and provide you with a detailed list of repairs with photos to take to the builder.
We'll check the components and operation of the sprinkler system to identify any issues. A sprinkler leak can go undetected for a long time, costing you hundreds on your water bill. Additionally, faulty heads or bad placement could leave your lawn looking less than spectacular. We'll make sure that if there's an issue that needs fixing, you'll know about it.
We are CPO/CPI Certified. (Certified Pool Operator/Certified Pool Inspector). If your home has a pool, we can come out and check the components of it to ensure everything is as it should be. There are many parts from skimmers, to pumps, to filters, and if things don't function as they should, you can't get maximum enjoyment. Let a CPO/CPI Certified Pool Inspector check it out for you.
Termites can do a lot of damage before ever being detected. We are licensed with the Texas Department of Agriculture to perform Wood Destroying Insect Inspections. We'll check high and low for any indicators of prior or active infestation of termites and other Wood Destroying Insects. Have peace of mind that your home's structural integrity hasn't been compromised.
Using a Zip Level, we are able to take measurements of the levelness of your foundation. Pairing this information with other indicators around the home can help us gain a better understanding of how the foundation is performing.
We can run a camera through your main drain lines to check the condition for you. Are you buying an older home that may have cast iron drain piping? Are you buying a new construction home that may have debris that got into the drain lines? Repairs can be expensive. We‘ll let you know what we find.
