Newly built houses often have problems that surface during a careful inspection. Even in towns with strict building codes, systems may be installed incorrectly, flashing missing or ductwork improperly sealed. These or other issues could end up being costly down the road.
Inspection fees vary depending on the size, type, and age of the home. Please contact us at (817) 501-3536 or at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss the fees for inspecting your property.
Inspections may take two to three hours or more, depending on the size of the house and the extensiveness of the grounds.
It’s a good idea to be present during the inspection. Although you’ll get a comprehensive written report of the findings, it’s best to walk through with the inspector as he points out the positive and negative findings and explains how the systems in the house function.
Because we take our time with each inspection, we conduct only one or two inspections a day. That means it may take several days to arrange a day and time for the inspection. If you have special time constraints, Corner Stone Home Inspections can usually be there within a day or two.
Corner Stone Inspections reports include a comprehensive, area-by-area breakdown of the condition of the house and grounds, covering up to 265 key points. Detailed descriptions and digital photographs note marginal areas as well as defective items that need immediate attention. The report also includes a summary with items recommended for repair or replacement. Reports typically take less than a day to prepare and are delivered by e-mail the evening after the inspection is completed.
Termites may not leave visible signs of an infestation, which means they can continue to do damage that remains undetected for years. It is estimated that at least 40–45% of Texas homes have termites or have had them in the past. Although it’s optional, we recommend having a pest inspection. Corner Stone Inspections offers a full inspection for it’s pests, including termites, carpenter ants, bees, and wasps.
Many home sellers have found that having an inspection can save them from getting a nasty surprise late in the process that could endanger a planned sale.
Since inspections themselves aren’t mandatory, some clients wonder whether it would be just as good to have a contractor or knowledgeable friend look over a property, but even the most experienced contractor may miss key issues. In recognition of the importance of proper training, Texas state law requires that inspectors be licensed through the Texas Real Estate Commission (TREC). License includes required training, exams, and continuing education to ensure comprehensive and up-to-date knowledge. Using a qualified inspector can mean the difference between getting the information you need before you buy a home and learning too late about major problems.
