Storms Coming. Watch Your Roof.

Home inspectors in Fort Worth expect roof damage after storms

Inspectors see wind-damaged shingles

Here’s a home maintenance tip from your Fort Worth area home inspection go-to-guys.

It’s October 21, 2015, and the weather forecast is for moderate to heavy rains in North Texas over the next few days. If those are heavy rains, then it will be a good idea to walk around the house afterwards and look at your roof for problems. You will be checking your roof for any missing shingles, and making sure that rain caps are still intact on furnace and water heater flue pipes, and any natural gas appliances that require vent stacks.

Safety First

You won’t have to get on your roof. In fact, for most folks that’s not a good idea at all. You can use binoculars, or even the telephoto setting on your point-and-shoot camera.

You can see when something is wrong, and call a roofer to repair it, before leaks develop into real trouble. It’s important to remember that not all the pipes on your roof need a vent cap. The drain vent pipes will be either plastic (PVC) or have lead wraps. Those have to stay open at the top so your drains work properly.

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.
