Here is a list of our inspection services. Our inspections meet or exceed the Texas Real Estate Commission's Standards of Practice.
GENERAL HOME INSPECTION:
This complete inspection is an opportunity to identify any deficiencies in your new home during the option period. A home is probably the biggest purchase you’ll ever make, so it’s important to understand the condition of your investment. I’ll provide a non-invasive evaluation of the home’s accessible structure, systems and components. While a home inspection can’t reveal every concern that exists, it will significantly reduce your anxiety by arming you with the knowledge you need to make an informed home-buying decision.

Wood-destroying insects can cause serious damage to the wooden structural components of a house. They can hide and go undetected for a long time, but there are many telltale signs for different species that indicate their presence. I’ll inspect your home for evidence of infestation and identify any conducive conditions before they become an expensive problem later.
NEW CONSTRUCTION INSPECTIONS:
Are you building a new home? I’ll come out during different phases of the construction process to make sure your project is being executed according to your specs. I can verify that scheduled work has been completed before you make a payment to your contractor. I’ll also come out prior to project completion to help you and your general contractor devise a punch list of remaining items. This is not a code-compliance inspection for your contractor, but a New Construction Inspection for you.
PRE-DRYWALL INSPECTION: Up to 2500 square feet $250, Above 2500 square feet $300
One way to ensure that a house is built according to its specifications is by performing a pre-drywall inspection. “Pre-drywall” refers to a phase during the homebuilding process just after the installation of certain elements – such as the doors, windows, foundation, flooring, wall and roof components, plumbing and electrical rough-in – and right before the insulation is installed and the drywall is hung. This in-progress or construction-phase inspection is useful because drywall can obscure some aspects of the interior and make identifying or fixing any problems both difficult and expensive, once the new home is completely finished.
This complete inspection is an opportunity to identify any deficiencies in your new home before closing with the builder.
This complete inspection is an opportunity to verify that any deficiencies that were identified in the general inspection have been resolved, and identify any new deficiencies or maintenance items before the builder's 1-year warranty expires. This inspection is offered at a discounted rate for previously-inspected homes.
IRRIGATION (Sprinkler) SYSTEM-$40
I will inspect the sprinkler system. In this inspection the main purpose is to run through the watering cycle for every zone. The most common problems I will be looking for are, Cracked, clogged or broken sprinkler heads, any of these problems may result in sputtering, inaccurate spray patterns or water spraying up instead of out of the sprinkler properly.
POOL Inspection - $60
Your pool requires proper maintenance and regular inspection so that you can enjoy it for years to come. Your pool maintenance professional is responsible only for its chemistry and cleanliness. Using a comprehensive checklist, I will inspect it for all the other.
INFRARED INSPECTION INCLUDED:
I use a state-of-the-art infrared camera to find problems that aren’t always apparent to the naked eye. An IR camera translates the heat signatures of objects into colors on a gradient scale, with higher temperatures appearing as lighter colors, and lower temperatures and wet areas appearing as darker colors. By evaluating these images, I can detect sources of energy loss, locate areas of moisture intrusion, pinpoint dangerous hot spots in the electrical system, and uncover other problems, such as wood-destroying pest and rodent infestations, as well as flue leaks in the chimney, which can lead to carbon monoxide poisoning.
