Home Fires Traced To Gas Piping (CSST) Not Properly Installed | Fort Worth Inspections Include Gas Systems

Home inspectors in Fort Worth, North Texas, and around the country continue to face resistance in talking to clients about the issues related to fires caused by improper bonding and grounding of gas piping materials like CSST (Corrugated Stainless Steel Tubing). We have been accused of “scaring” clients with our findings, or sensationalizing the latest media trends. At House Exam, we believe that our clients can make up their own mind when we present them with the findings in our inspections. The truth is: all property owners benefit from advances in home safety.

As this NBC5 news report indicates, there is tremendous difference of opinion about what to do about lightning-related fires and home safety, but bonding of electrical and gas components in the house is of primary importance for personal safety, let alone as a guard against lightning strikes. If your home inspector is not talking to you about gas-related issues, he or she is not doing a thoroughly professional job.

If you suspect gas-related deficiencies in your home, call House Exam Inspection 817-797-2461. We can check your home for proper bonding and grounding of your electrical and gas distribution systems. Benjamin Franklin’s saying could be changed in this case: “An ounce of prevention is worth more than a pound of cure.”

Fort Worth Home Inspection

As first time buyers, my fiancé and I were initially very nervous and unsure of the inspection process.
Adam took time to thoroughly explain the process and made simple recommendations as we walked through the house. He was very professional and patient with our questions!
The report was detailed and easy to read. We presented the home owner a copy to make negotiations- he commented how thorough it was and wished he used your services years ago when he first bought the home! We are very pleased and thankful for your services- happy to recommend you to friends and family.

"We would like to commend Adam on the thorough job that he did at our home inspection.
“Adam found a very small leak that many people would have missed. When this leak was tracked down, it was determined to be either in or under the slab. Exactly what we did not want.
“We turned the house down.
“The value of your service was outstanding because it saved us many thousands of dollars, as well as the time and headaches it would have cost to repair the leak.
“We certainly will using House Exam for our future inspection needs."

Thank you for this unusually thorough inspection report. I’ve had a number of inspections run in Texas and California, but yours is easily the most thorough I’ve ever read. As an out of state purchaser, the inspection is that much more important since I can’t see the property first hand, and you have helped us significantly. If you ever need an out of state reference, I’d be very pleased to describe what a great job you’ve done for us.
Best regards,
Steven B.
