What’s inspected by your Houston home inspector

Houston home inspectors inspect a lot of areas

It's essential to have them appropriately evaluated, and below are the items that I check. These are the areas I will be looking over when you hire me to perform a home inspection in Houston.

Structure Components

Foundation - Identifying the foundation type during a Houston home

inspection service. Slab, post-tension slab foundation, pier, and beam

foundation. The foundation will be evaluated visually where possible,

and the foundation will also be measured for levelness using a zip

level. Note pier beam foundations will be evaluated from the crawlspace

area if the inspector can safely enter and if the access opening is at

least 18" x 24" if they are on the floor and 16"x 24" if they are at

perimeter walls and crawlspace height is 18"

Grading and drainage- During a Houston property inspection the home

inspector will evaluate the drainage of the property. If water doesn't

drain properly away from home, it can cause foundation issues and

moisture intrusion into the structure. Improper drainage causes the

majority of foundation issues. I am inspecting how the home sheds water

away from foundation.. As a Houston property inspector, I take great

care in evaluating the drainage of your Houston home.













Supplies and drains are inspected during your Houston, Texas, home inspection.

HVAC SYSTEMS will be tested and inspected during your Houston, Texas, home inspection.

Air conditioning (A/C), Heating unit, and Ducts

Electrical Systems

The service panel and the branch circuits will be inspected by your Houston inspector for safety issues and defects.

I start inspecting the service panel. Identify the service and branch circuit wiring type. Wiring types for service feeders will be either Aluminum multi-stranded or copper. For the branch circuits, it will be either Aluminum or copper as well. The difference is if the branch circuits have single-stranded aluminum wiring than a certified electrician is recommended because of the fire hazard potential associated with aluminum wiring also insurance can be challenging to find.

The inspector will identify what type of service meaning is the service overhead or underground.

The inspector identifies what type of service panel is present.

Note sometimes on older homes I come across some service panels that are known for shock or fire hazards below are the type of service panels to look out for I always recommend these types of panels to be replaced.


Dishwashers, Cooktops, Ovens, Garbage disposals, Microwave, Exhaust fans, Dryer Vents, Garage doors, and openers.

Informative Details are what make your home inspection Report special.

I spend most of my time creating the Report. Many times the Report takes longer to produce than it takes to do the inspection.

On-site reports

Offices parties lasting outward nothing age few resolve.Are you considering hiring an inspector who provides a Report on-site? I urge you to ask yourself how good will the report be that was produced in about a three or four-hour window during the inspection. A Report delivered on-site will not be customized to the home, making it just a generic report. I feel that I must make things as clear as possible. Many times the report takes me three hours or longer to produce. I produce quality customized Reports, and that’s not going to happen using only drop- down comments. I offer a unique Report because all homes are not the same. Our specialized custom Reports what your looking for at an affordable, fair price than you have found your inspector view a report and give me a call 281-770-2773.

Report process

Now the real work begins documenting all the details in an easy to read Report. My Reports are composed of pictures of defects and a detailed comment below the image, so it's clear what the issue is. I make the Reports easy to read even if you don't know anything about a home besides living in one. The Report will be given within 24 hours most of the time it's delivered the next morning. I send the report to your email unless you make payment online, and then I send you a link where you can pay and download your Report. The Report is sent in a PDF format, so downloading and viewing is a breeze. Important once you have the Report, please carefully read you may be surprised at the number of issues found by your Home inspector. Once you have learned everything, you are always welcome to give me a call and ask for my advice. I build relationships with people, so there's no question too small.

My goal

My goal is to deliver an impressively detailed Report to the client. If I could inspect the home and gather all the information and produce a highly detailed Report in the home inspection window, I would, but the truth is, I can't achieve that type of quality in just three hours. There are a lot of components to a home. Writing a Report in such a small time frame would cause a loss in quality. That's just something I'm not willing to compromise on, and neither should you. Buying a home is an investment in the future. Armed with the right ammunition can save you from a huge mistake or adequately prepare you for negotiations. That's the reason why I spend my time at the home looking for the defects, and not writing the report on-site. So make sure to hire an inspector who's going to take the time to investigate the house properly and spend the time off-site on the Report.
