Whether you’re looking for the next perfect home for your family or a real estate investor looking to solidify a deal, purchasing a property is a big decision involving a lot of money.
Before you commit to the transaction, you want to make sure that you get the home inspected by one of the top rated inspectors in the area.
Local home inspectors know what to look for when it comes to Houston residential homes, specifically the type of weather and issue we have in the city.
Houston is prone to hurricanes, flooding, humidity, termites, and numerous other issues that tend to affect homes in our city, and your home inspector needs to be well-versed in those types of issues in order to know to look for them.
What long-term or hidden issues can occur with a home after it’s gone through a local natural disaster, especially with the number of times our city has flooded in recent years?
It would be nearly impossible to determine those issues with homes if you don’t know where to look or have the tools needed to do a proper home inspection.
And if a home has had work done to it, then you need to make sure that their work and services were rendered correctly by doing a formal inspection.
With as many homes that exist in metro Houston and surrounding areas, home inspections have become crucial in determining if you’re making a sound investment.
Houston home inspection services
Our team has a combined 60 years of home inspection experience in Houston. We’ve created inspection reports for new homes, old homes, flood homes, and every other type of residential property around.
The detailed report everything from the foundation to the roof. For a new home or new construction we will do phase inspections to make sure the home is being built appropriately for your family.
Our home inspection services have the highest level of reliability, with the latest and greatest equipment including thermal imaging, our inspection reports include everything you need to know when purchasing a property.
Because Houston is so large, real estate in Houston can range wildly depending on what part of the city the home is in. As a result, we may recommend a slightly varied inspection if we expect that other things could affect the home.
For new construction, we perform the phase inspection and come out at least 3 times in order to review the work being done by your builder.
If work is being done on a property that was requested before the sale/purchase, then there may be repeat (or re inspections) done on the Houston home in order to ensure that the work was completed appropriately.
Getting a home inspection in Houston TX
It’s important to choose the right company for your Houston home inspection. Real estate is expensive to purchase, and it’s even more expensive to repair, so you don’t want something missed the first time around.
There are quite a few home inspection services in the Houston area, but many of them are run by one-man teams that aren’t native to Houston’s market or climate.
Your inspectors should be familiar with common build styles and issues that occur locally, and their inspections should include detailed inspections reports that show every single thing they check for and have found.
