I am sure each of us have watched one of those great home improvement shows on HGTV, DIY Network, etc. It's never requires more than 30 minutes (minus commercials) for our favorite TV personality to correct the woes forced upon the home owner that's the topic of that particular episode. All is corrected, and no expense is spared.
Now to reality. You buy a home. You hope it's what you want. You hope that the money you invest is going into a well built, well maintained property. How do you cover your bases, and protect the investment you've made? Hire a home inspector, of course!
The reality is this: on TV, you see contractors (TV people) do things that will positively never happen in real life. No home inspector demolishes drywall to see what's behind those walls. No home inspector assesses whether your HVAC system is perfectly balanced, or the correct components are installed per the manufacturer. No home inspector tests breakers, or works on wiring inside the electrical panel, attic, basement, or walls. You'll never see a home inspector digging up drain connections in the yard. In West Texas, you'll never see home inspectors scanning your home with $25,000 infrared thermal cameras (though I can offer you a limited version of this service at no additional charge!)
What I'm getting at is this: before you hire an inspector, know what to expect! If you're unsure, I can help. We can review what is a part of a State of Texas licensed home inspection, and what is not included. And the great thing is, you may be surprised how much worthwhile information a realistic home inspection from Double C Home Inspections can provide you with!
