Houston Home Inspection Overview

inspection_overview A home cannot fail an home inspection. A professional home inspection gives you an independent, unbiased view of any problems and possible solutions, so that you will have all the facts you need to make an informed decision. You will accompany your inspector during the consultation, so that you will have visual reinforcement of your written report.   We take our inspection reports seriously. Every inspection is a complete and thorough analysis of all the major systems and components in the home. The report includes a clear description of what we’ve found with any problem areas noted, so you can easily identify them. Our inspectors also provide a free telephone consultation after your inspection.

Houston Electronic Inspection Reports

Placed against a wall, trim etc., this unit registers percentage of moisture content from 4% up to 50% or greater, in one-degree increments. Moisture levels between 5 to 14% are normal, higher readings may indicate a leak or excessive moisture. A destructive type of moisture meter (small pins) is also available for use with the current owner’s permission.


What Really Matters  Buying a home? The process can be stressful.  A home inspection is supposed to give you peace of mind, but often has the opposite effect.  You will be asked   to absorb a lot of information in a short time.  This often includes a written home inspection report, checklist, photographs, environmental reports and what the home inspector himself   says during the home inspection.  All this combined with the seller’s disclosure and   what you notice yourself makes the experience even more overwhelming.  What should you do?

Relax. Most of your home inspection will be maintenance recommendations, life expectancies   and minor imperfections. These are nice to know about.  However, the issues that really matter will fall into four categories:
                                                                                    1. Major defects.  An example of this would be a structural failure.

*Things that lead to major defects.  A small roof-flashing leak, for example.  *Things that may hinder your ability to finance, legally occupy or insure the home.  *Safety hazards, such as an exposed, live buss bar at the electric panel. Anything in these categories should be addressed.  Often a serious problem can be corrected inexpensively to protect both life and property (especially in categories   2 and 4). Most property sellers are honest and are often surprised to learn of defects uncovered during an home inspection.  Realize that sellers are under no obligation to repair everything mentioned in the home inspection report.  No home is perfect.  Keep things in perspective.

Do not kill your deal over things that do not matter.  It is inappropriate to   demand that a seller address deferred maintenance, conditions already listed on the seller’s disclosure or nit-picky items.

 


An home inspection is necessary in order to determine the defects of the house, to establish a repair list, to determine the important repairs needed prior to purchasing the house or property, and to help with price negotiations.

Why?   The house may have a defect that you should be aware of to protect your investment.

And …   You are required to have a home inspection for the difficult and important decision of money and interest.
