Why You Need a Home Inspection
The purchase of a home is possibly the largest investment you will ever make. Getting a top-quality home inspection prior to purchasing a new build or previously owned home will help ensure that you have all the facts about the health of a home before you make that commitment.
Systems We Inspect
Our superior quality measures meet or exceed Texas Real Estate Commission (TREC) Standards of Practice requirements. You can expect a thorough inspection of each critical system and structure of your home:
- Grading and Drainage
- Roof Covering
- Roof Structure & Attic
- Ceilings and Floors
- Doors (Interior & Exterior)
- Porches, Decks and Carports
- Electrical Systems
- Heating, Ventilation and Air
- Conditioning Systems

- WDI – Termites and pests
Upon completion of your inspection, our expert inspector will walk the home with you to share and explain their findings and to answer any questions or concerns you may have about the home. You will also receive a written report with photos within about 24 hours.
In both new and older homes, the best way to ensure that you are well-informed about the strengths and weaknesses of a property is to have us perform a professional home inspection. We are trained to identify problem areas both small and large that may have been overlooked by the previous owners and to identify which require immediate attention.
Whether you are selling your home on your own or using a Realtor, it’s always a prudent idea to have a professional home inspection. All homes have strengths and weaknesses. We help you determine how serious any problems are, which must be immediately addressed and which can wait.
The more you know about your home, the more prepared you will be for negotiation.
New Construction Phase Inspection
In a new home, the quality of construction is often not what it used to be. Therefore, many buyers have independent reviews of their properties during various stages of the construction process, including slab, frame, and final inspection. This relatively inexpensive inspection protects your purchase, prevents unpleasant surprises, and ensures the quality home that you’ve dreamed about.
Most builders provide a one-year warranty for new construction. Generally during this period of time, the buyer develops a “punch list” of corrections for the contractor to repair under the warranty coverage.
Some defects will not be obvious to the untrained eye. It is prudent to obtain our home inspectors list of items that will most likely be repaired by your builder at no cost to you.
You will be reassured knowing that potential problems were addressed before they grew into something that could cost you a great deal down the road.
2/10 Home Builders Warranty Inspection
The 2/10 home builders warranty is a type of warranty that is offered by some home builders to provide protection for new home buyers.
This warranty typically covers a period of 2 years for the structure of the home and 10 years for major systems such as electrical, plumbing and heating. The warranty covers defects in materials and workmanship and is designed to give the buyer peace of mind that any issues that may arise with the construction of the home will be addressed by the builder. The 2/10 home builders warranty is typically provided by the builder, but in some cases, it may be purchased from a third-party warranty provider.

The warranty also includes additional coverage for items such as roofing, stucco and paint, which are not typically covered by other home warranty companies.
