What We Inspect
Residential Construction Consulting & Inspections
1- Year Builder Warranty Inspections.....
If you are local to the immediate Dickinson/League City/Friendswood/Texas City/Seabrook travel area "Take the Challenge". You can get a free 30 minute onsite evaluation if you had your home previously inspected within the last two years and are wondering about what you got or have a problem. No pressure. No sales. If at a later date you need information, an inspection or a second opinion I'm hoping you will call me. If you suspect you got a "not so good" inspection give me a call. *Some limitations may apply (no stucco, no aluminum wiring, etc.)
Have a big remodel job to do? Your contractor is not licensed.
Pre-Purchase Resale Home Inspections.....
We will not use a pre-determined checklist inspection because you simply cannot pre-determine problems or property condition. Experienced and professional inspectors do not pre-determine or limit their inspections to a checklist in order to bail out in 3 hours or less in order to get to the next house. What kind of inspection is that?
Take time to make sure you are hiring someone you can trust to do an excellent job and to look out for your interests above all others. Choosing the wrong home inspector will cost you money, often thousands. (Don't hire any home inspector without reading this.)
The market can be congested by the glut in short sales and bank owned properties being sold with little or no disclosure. This is where we can help. Knowledge is power. Allow us to use our critical eye to expose and reveal any of the major issues that are going to affect you as a buyer or seller.
Foreclosure inspections need the electricity, water and gas turned on in order for those components and systems to be inspected. You shouldn't skimp on an inspection involving a foreclosure. You should obtain as much information as is possible. There is no warranty and the limited "appliance warranties" do not cover pre-existing conditions or units clearly near the end of their estimated life.

If you are considering a major remodel then I strongly encourage you to get a inspector on board BEFORE yo sign a remodel contract. Anyone can be a remodeler and horror stories are aplenty. Remodelers and builders are not licensed in Texas.

FAQ copied from the Texas Residential Construction Commission web site prior to shut down.
For contracts executed before September 1, 2009, or work commenced before that date, courts will consider the law in effect at that time. So, if Title 16 was still in effect when the parties signed a contract for new home construction or transferred title on new home construction, the statutory warranties created by Title 16 and the commission–adopted performance standards still apply.
Furthermore, if the parties agree in their contract to the terms of the applicable warranties and performance standards, a court will rely on the terms of the contract to determine if those warranties and performance standards apply, including if the parties have agreed to apply the statutory warranties and commission-adopted performance standards.
Please note that Texas courts have not had a chance to review the legal effect of the Sunset Act on Title 16. Therefore, a court may decide that the language in the Government Code Section 325.017 does not cause the statutory warranties and commission-adopted performance standards to expire until August 31, 2010. Therefore, the safest course of action is for the parties to agree to written warranties and performance standards that are at least as stringent as the statutory warranties and commission-adopted performance standards until August 31, 2010. That way, if a court should decide that Title 16 provisions are still in effect until August 31, 2010, the contract will be in compliance with the law.
If you want to select a TRCC Dispute Resolution Inspector to determine construction workmanship or building performance for your new built home of two or ten years of age or less call me today at 281-337-4052.
Time is running out on many homes. If you are having a home built make sure your inspector has been or is a TRCC Dispute Resolution Inspector and is code certified.
