The Ultimate Home Inspection Checklist

When you are in the home-buying process, emotions can be running high. You may have fallen in love with the home of your dreams, but much needs to occur before your offer is accepted. This is where Texas Professional Inspections steps in. Our inspections provide the insight you need to purchase the best home for you and your loved ones.

Everything You Need to Know Beforehand

A home inspection is vital for several reasons. For starters, a home inspection can measure the condition of every aspect of the home and provides you with an extra layer of knowledge when finalizing the purchasing process. This information will be helpful if you need to negotiate repairs, seller concessions, or price before the closing date. An inspection can also provide insight into what must be done in the coming years to keep your home in tip-top shape. Hiring an expert inspector, like our team at Texas Pro Inspections, will help you know exactly what state your home is in.

What an Inspection Entails

During the inspection process, we leave no stone unturned. We meticulously examine every part of your home, including the floors, walls, ceilings, and roof. Our thorough process involves checking the functionality of plugs and switches, ensuring the plumbing and wiring are in good shape, inspecting for any signs of mold, mildew, or pests, testing major appliances and equipment, assessing the age of materials used, and evaluating the overall stability and condition of your potential home. Our team will be meticulous in their examination, taking detailed notes throughout the entire time spent on your property. Rest assured, our goal is to provide you with a comprehensive assessment so that you can make an informed decision regarding your prospective home.

What We Are Looking For

During an inspection, our Texas Pro Inspections team focuses on various aspects to ensure a comprehensive assessment of your property.
Here is an overview of what we look for:
Primarily, we keep an eye out for any indicators of damage that require immediate attention and repair. This includes identifying water stains, strong odors, and visibly unstable areas within the home.
Secondly, we pay close attention to the functionality of the home. It is crucial for you to have confidence that your lights will illuminate when switched on and that your water supply will provide hot water as expected. We meticulously check various systems and ensure that everything is in proper working order.
Lastly, we assess the age of various components within your house. This includes examining the roof, siding, and any appliances that are included in the sale. Understanding the age of these elements lets us estimate when they might require replacement or maintenance. This information empowers you to evaluate the urgency of any future repairs or upgrades.
By focusing on indicators of damage, functionality, and the age of various parts of your home, we aim to provide you with a comprehensive inspection report that helps you make informed decisions about your property.

If you are embarking on the journey of purchasing a new home do not hesitate to contact our dedicated team at Texas Pro Inspections. We are here to help assist you every step of the way. Our goal is to ensure that you are fully prepared and informed about every aspect of your dream home.
