Frequently Asked Questions:

Why do I need a home inspection?

Buying a home could be the largest single investment you will ever make. To minimize unpleasant surprises and unexpected difficulties, you will want to learn as much as you can about the newly constructed or existing house before you buy it.  A home inspection may identify the need for major repairs, or builder oversights, as well as the need of maintenance to keep it in good shape.  After the inspection, you will know more about the house, which will allow you to make decisions with confidence.  If you already are a homeowner, a home inspection can identify problems in the making and suggest preventive measures that might help you avoid costly future repairs.  If you are planning to sell  your home, a home inspection can give you the opportunity to make repairs that will put the house in better selling condition.

What does it include?

This is a full home inspection and will cover the condition of the home's heating system; central air conditioning system (temperature permitting); interior plumbing and electrical systems; the roof, attic and visible insulation; walls, ceilings, floors, windows and doors;  the foundation and structural components.

How much will it cost?

The inspection fees vary slightly depending on the size and the foundation of the house. There may be additional fees for pools, hot tubs, sprinkler systems and pier & beam homes. Our fees are competitive. Please call us for a quote 512-288-1888.

Do I have to be there?

While it is not required that you be present for the inspection, it is highly recommended.  You will be able to observe the inspector and ask questions as you learn about the condition of the home and how to maintain it.
