Why do I need a Home Inspector?
A Professional Home Inspector is a state licensed inspector that has the experience and qualifications required by the state and must abide by the TREC standards of practice for home inspections and carry insurance. Only a licensed professional is allowed to operate in the state of Texas.
What type of homes do you inspect?
All homes regardless of age or foundation in and around Houston and surrounding areas including but not limited to Spring, Tomball, The Woodlands, Magnolia, Cypress, Montgomery, College Station.
Do I need an Inspector if I am buying a new home?
Definitely, an unbiased home inspector is a valuable ally to have when evaluating the quality of workmanship done by the builder.
A lot of New homes are built to a minimum standard. In the counties, the surrounding areas of Houston not considered city limits there is no code enforcement, so there are no inspections except those done by the builder. It is in your best interest to have even a new home inspected by your Professional Inspector to ensure you’re getting the quality of home you expect. Some home inspectors do phase inspections so the home is inspected as it is being built.
Does a Home Pass or Fail a Home Inspection?
No. A home inspection takes into consideration the current conditions of the home. A home inspector will not pass or fail a home, rather, he will inform you of items which need to be repaired or replaced.
How much should a home inspection cost?
Home inspections have many variables. Age of the home, square footage, out buildings, and other specialty items. The average cost of a home inspection for a home under 2500 square feet can be anywhere from $250-$450 or more. The cost to replace major appliances, A/C or heater equipment, plumbing or electrical systems can cost thousands of dollars each. The cost of a home inspection is a bargain and could end up saving you money in costly repairs that would have been missed if it weren’t for a home inspection.
