Houston, TX : Home inspection is a wise step to take before purchasing a house as it gives you peace of mind and surety that your investment is safe and sound. Similarly, home inspections are also useful if you’re about to list your house and want your home’s condition to be assessed before you can sell it. If you’ve purchased a new home from a builder with a 12-month “bumper to bumper” warranty, you can also consider getting a full home or major components inspected in the 11th month of homeownership before the warranty expires.
The Houston-based company HTX Home Inspections offers all these services and more to existing and potential homeowners in Texas. There’s no denying that purchasing a new home is a risky proposition and any major structural or building material issues can show up quite some time after you’ve made the purchase. Specifically, for homeowners investing in a new home, the honeymoon period can last a while before the cracks start to show. Moreover, the majority of the homeowners don’t have the expertise, knowledge, or tools required to identify these issues.
Homebuilders usually offer a 12-month warranty period but if a major problem doesn’t show up in the first year, after that you’re on your own. This means a significant loss of property value as well as expensive repairs. HTX Home Inspections offers the 11th-month warranty inspection service which allows homeowners to spot any issues with the major components that only start to show after the home is being used.
About the need for home inspections, a company representative said, “HTX Home Inspections was founded by Douglas Hayes after decades of working in the building materials industry and gaining knowledge and experience about material building products and how if they’re installed properly and work together can create a well-functioning home. This experience allowed him to uncover the disconnect between builders and manufacturers and the negative impact it has on the home building process. Hayes decided to put this experience and knowledge to good use through home inspections so that the clients can get a behind-the-scenes look and have peace of mind that their houses are functioning exactly as intended.”
Apart from the 11th-month warranty inspection service, HTX Home Inspections also offers home inspections for prospective buyers, pre-listing inspections, drone roof inspections, and construction loan site inspections. The company also utilizes thermal imaging technology to find major house issues such as moisture penetration, missing insulation in ceilings and walls, extreme heat in wiring or from electrical devices, or HVAC issues. Clients can choose between major components or full home inspections, depending on their needs.
As a certified home inspector, HTX Home Inspections serves in Houston as well as other areas in Texas including Pearland, League City, Baytown, Friendswood, Webster, Sugar Land, Spring, Missouri City, Dickinson, Humble, Richmond, Kingwood, Manvel, Katy, La Porte, and Pasadena.
