Part I, Changes in Home Inspection, February 1, 2009

    Standards of Practice have changed for Texas inspectors. On February 1, 2009, inspectors must follow a new set of Standards AND use a new Property Inspection Report. This is the first in a series of articles designed to help you understand how things will change, and how those changes will affect Texas home Buyers, Sellers, Realtors, and home inspectors.

    Some changes are relatively minor. For example, the capacity of a water heater now has to be reported. There is a blank for it on the report. Understand, most companies (such as House Exam Inspection and Consulting) provided this information all along. What’s the difference? Now ALL inspection companies will be required to do so. Why didn’t the other guys do it all along? Hmmmm.

    Now, (after February 1, 2009) inspectors will have to tell you what kind of roof covering you have. We did that long ago. Inspectors will now have to tell you how much and what type of insulation is in your attic. If you read any of the Sample Reports provided on this site, you’ll see that we’ve thought you needed to know that all along, and told you how much and what kind.

    Don’t misunderstand, we’re glad everybody has to do all this reporting. But, at House Exam Inspection and Consulting, we have been providing service above and beyond the Standards of Practice for a long time. It’s our promise to you, that we will continue to provide you with more information than required, so that you can make the most confident decision possible about that home purchase. With our Reports, hundreds of our Clients have re-negotiated for hundreds of thousands of dollars in costly home repairs before they closed on purchases. Sound good?

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,
