HAPPY CUSTOMERS

Steve P. - Kemah

After your recent inspection of a one year old "as-is" foreclosed builder home we requested structural repairs. The bank saw the photos and the references to building codes and opted to repair than give thousands of dollars in price cuts; the leverage of your report gave us the stronger position.
 

Jay Davis Jr. - Manvel

The builders 3rd party inspector represents the builder as the "smoke and mirror" guy. He tried but you simply blew him away. Buyers have no idea how bad these guys lie.

What do experts say about using full IRC code certified inspectors?

From Aaron in Garland, Texas

"Inspecting new home construction is not for amateurs or even state-licensed resale home inspectors. This is an extremely complex profession that requires an enormous pool of knowledge and experience from which to draw.

The residential building codes in Texas consist of literally thousands of pages of technical documents intended to legislate the minimal building standards for homes in this state. "

Hiring a non-certified inspector? You could save the money and do the inspection yourself with the same lackluster and potentially dangerous results."

Exceptional Credentials & Qualifications
