Residential Home Inspections

Purchasing a home is one, if not the largest, purchase you will make in your lifetime. Scheduling a residential home inspection helps identify problematic areas in new construction or resale homes. With our detailed, fully comprehensive home inspection report you will have the ability to know the condition of the home and also use the report as a road map to future repairs or updates.  HTX Home Inspections is here to help you with your home inspection needs and we look forward to providing you a peace of mind during the home buying process.

Digital Foundation Measurements

In addition to following the TREC SOP on foundation inspection, we can also offer a digital reading of the foundation. The ZipLevel foundation measurement device offers a digital “baseline measurement” of any potential elevations or slopes across the foundation. This “baseline measurement” also serves as a reference point for future inspections, allowing for early detection of any structural changes or issues that may arise. By incorporating the ZipLevel device into a foundation inspection, along with the TREC SOP’s on foundation inspection, will ensure a thorough assessment and reliable data for maintaining the stability and safety of a building’s foundation.

Thermal Imaging

Infrared thermal imaging allows us the ability to find major issues like moisture penetration, missing insulation in walls and ceilings, extreme heat from electrical devices or wiring, and HVAC issues. With every inspection we include a thermal image scan of 3 areas; the shower pan(s) to check for active leaks, breaker box to look for any overheating wires and the HVAC cabinet to check for any air leakage.


Termite/WDI Inspections

Either way your WDI inspection will be done on the same day of your inspection!

Phase 2- Pre-Drywall Inspection

With new construction homes the Phase 2 Pre-drywall inspection is great way to see what’s behind the walls before the walls are installed. A pre-drywall inspection is similar to the final inspection in that it covers electrical systems, plumbing, HVAC and structural systems (foundation, windows, doors, roof structure etc) the bonus to a pre-drywall is that the framing materials are inspected as well. Having a pre-drywall inspection performed adds another layer of assurance that all systems, structures and components are installed correctly and perform as intended.

Drone Roof Inspection

The three top reasons for using a drone for roof inspections are; it’s safer, it is more efficient and it gives the inspector a view into areas that are inaccessible from walking a roof. HTX will utilize a drone when inspecting all roofs that are two-stories or more, roofs that are too steep to walk and roofs that are covered with products that can be easily damaged when walked on.

Builder Warranty Inspection

Home builders will offer a “bumper to bumper” warranty on your new construction home typically within the first year (depending on builder, sometimes it’s two years). As your home settles and major components and appliances are being used problems can occur. How ever long the warranty is, 1 or 2 yrs, HTX offers a full home inspection that will include cosmetic defects prior to the end of your builder warranty.

Pool/Spa Inspection

If the home you are interested in purchasing has a pool, let us inspect it. Our certified pool inspectors will provide a thorough, non-invasive inspection of the pool and all equipment serving it.
