Before you make the decision to buy that house you owe it to yourself to get it inspected first. A home inspection by a professional home inspector can reveal critical information you need to know before you make that purchase. A few of the advantages to getting a potential house inspected are:
- A knowledge of deficiencies and general condition of the house you wish to purchase can aid you in making that important decision whether or not to buy.
- Ability to negotiate repairs of known deficiencies with sellers.
- The cost of the inspection is minimal when compared to the cost of the repairs by forgoing an inspection.

New House Construction Inspections
If you are building a house having a 3rd party inspection can help insure your house is built right. Houses are built by people and sometimes people make mistakes. Some municipalities have inspectors who can catch these mistakes, however, in many areas there are NO inspections on a new house construction. Even in areas that do have inspections as part of the building process inspectors have tight schedules they must keep limiting the time they are able to devote to their inspections and thus the time to catch errors. Having a 3rd party inspector working on your behalf can provide an additional set of trained eyes that will help catch mistakes while they are easy to correct. Inspection of new construction is done in three phases conducted at key points in the construction process. These phases are:
Inspection of the foundation before cement is poured. This inspection examines the installation of rebar, tension cables, organic material such as roots in foundation area, grade beams, proper sleeving and installation of rough plumbing penetrations, integrity of moisture barrier etc. Catching errors at this point before it is literally "cast in stone" can be worth the cost of an inspection.
Pre-drywall inspection. This inspection examines the framing of the house. It also includes an inspection of the various roughed-in systems in the house such as electrical, plumbing and mechanical systems.
This is the final inspection and is a whole house inspection. In this phase the structure is examined, systems and appliances are tested for proper operation. Finishes are examined. This is a detailed summary inspection of the entire house.
Home Inspection for Sellers
Many buyers will want to have the home they wish to purchase inspected by a home inspector. Home inspectors in Texas have standards of practice that they must follow. These standards of practice dictate what must be inspected during a home inspection at a minimum. If you plan to put your home on the market, getting it inspected before you place that "for sale" sign in the front yard can provide you with a list of deficiencies you may wish to focus on repairing before it's placed on the market. A few advantages of getting your home inspected before putting it on the market include:
- A knowledge of deficiencies, which can allow you to get estimates for repair.
- Allows your repairs to be focused on repairs that will matter on an inspection report.
- Can allow you to do your homework on pricing for repairs you may wish to have the buyer to perform.
