What’s inspected by your Houston inspector
Houston house 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.
Foundation - Identifying the foundation type during a Houston home inspection
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
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.
