WHAT DOES THE INSPECTION EXCLUDE?

We do not inspect septic systems, termites and other wood-destroying insects, environmental hazards, fountains, security systems or solar equipment, cosmetic items, cabinets, fences, floor coverings, water softeners, driveways and sidewalks and the self-cleaning functions of the oven.

* A home inspection is not a home warranty, implied warranty or protection against future failures. Mechanical components such as HVAC Systems can and will break down, just as roofs will need replacement. A home inspection tells you the condition of the home at the time of the inspection report only. A real estate home warranty policy can be purchased for additional reassurance.

* A home inspection is not an appraisal that determines the value and square footage of a home. A home inspector should not tell you what to pay for the property or whether to buy it or not, only what repairs might be needed. We give you the information to make that decision.

* A home inspection is not a code inspection, which verifies local building code compliance, although the TREC Inspector must be well versed in current codes. They will follow a “Standards of Practice” established by the “Texas Real Estate Commission” (TREC). Home inspectors will report findings when it comes to safety concerns that may be in the current code such as no GFCI outlets at sinks. An inspector thinks “Safety” first .. not “Code” when performing a home inspection, although some items may fall into both categories.
