Q: How do I choose a Home Inspector?
A: Call up and ask about their credentials and experience. If for some reason you don’t feel comfortable asking this of the inspector when speaking with them on the phone then how will you feel asking questions at the inspection. You must feel that the inspector is qualified, experienced and attentive of your needs.
Q: What qualifications or credentials should a home inspector offer?
A: When choosing a home inspector, begin with a list of association members in your area. Then check to see who among these is the most experienced and has the most outstanding reputation for thoroughness as an inspector. And be sure to attend your inspection. That way, you’ll learn as much as possible from your member inspector. Some have college degrees in fields related to construction such as engineering and architecture. A few have passed the same code certification examinations that the building code officials are required to pass.
Q: What will the inspection cover?
A: A thorough Inspection covers everything from roof to the foundation.
|Items that are included in the Inspection are as follows:
Q: How long will the Inspection take?
A: Most Inspections take about two and a half to three hours. These times will vary depending on the size, age & condition of the home.
Q: Should I be present during the Inspection?
A: We recommend that you be present for at least the last portion of the inspection. That way we can go over our findings, and show you what our concerns might be. At that time we will discuss any recommendations for further evaluation by licensed specialists like electricians or plumbers, etc.
Q: Why use our company’s Services?
A: We thought you’d never ask! In today’s economy, who can afford the costly repairs brought on by surprises after they move in to a new home? The purchase itself is one of life’s major expenses. If you don’t have an inspection, OR, if you use the wrong company, you may be stuck paying for surprise repairs along with that house payment. Our 30+ years in remodeling and building houses has given us experience that most North Texas home inspection companies don’t have. Because those inspectors don’t have that experience, many of them shy away from talking details and giving opinions about the house at the very time you need details and opinions.
So, let us put our experience and superior-rated service to work for you. Check out what our awesome previous clients had to say about us. Go see our Angie’s List “Super Service Award” two years running. Call NOW (817) 797-2461, or click “Schedule Your Home Inspection”
Q: Why can’t I have someone in my family who is very handy or a contractor, inspect my new home?
A: This is the biggest mistake many potential new homeowners make when purchasing a home. Although the person you are considering may be very skilled, they are not trained or experienced at professional home inspections. Professional home inspection is a unique skill like no other. Professional inspectors get what we call an inspector’s instinct for problems. That instinct takes extensive training and lots of experience doing inspections to develop. Many contractors, and other trades professionals hire a professional home inspector to inspect their homes when they make a purchase.
But the main reason has to do with CLOUT! No other opinion matters. When a Buyer goes to a Seller (usually through Realtors) with a Home Inspector’s Report of property conditions, it’s a publicly recognized legal document. When it all comes down to it, Uncle Fred may be a great guy, but Sellers aren’t moved by his opinions. They don’t pay much attention unless there is a licensed inspector involved in the process. So, Call NOW (817) 797-2461, or schedule your inspection online 24/7.
Q: What if I have questions after the inspection?
A: You can call us and discuss all the aspects of your new home whenever you like. Our service is a long-term investment.

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.
Review – Home Inspection Keller, TX
"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."

Ft. Worth Property Inspection Review
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.
