INSPECTION SERVICES

Spot On Inspection, PLLC, offers professional residential and commercial property inspection services to the Houston area and most surrounding counties. Our detail-oriented inspection services are performed with the customer in mind, providing you with a thorough assessment of any property so that you can achieve a successful and more confident real estate transaction. We adhere to InterNACHI’s and TREC’s exemplary Standards of Practice for home inspectors during our inspection services.

Buyer’s Inspection

Our residential property inspection is a comprehensive evaluation of your prospective home. It’s our goal to inform you about the home’s condition so that you’re prepared to negotiate a transaction more effectively and without fear of making a bad investment. As with all of our inspections, we invite our customers to attend so that you can see exactly what we see while asking any questions that you may have. We typically provide an inspection report the same day as the home inspection, and we’re happy to take any additional questions that you may have afterward. You can reach us over the phone between 8am and 8pm, 7 days a week.

We inspect the following areas of a home:

  • Roofing System
  • Foundation & Crawl Spaces
  • Basement
  • Structural Components
  • Exterior (doors, windows, cladding, soffits, fascias)
  • Driveways & Walkways
  • Attached Garage
  • Grading & Drainage
  • Deck
  • Interior (doors, windows, floors, walls, ceilings, stairs)
  • Attic, Ventilation, & Insulation
  • Fireplace
  • Electrical System
  • Plumbing System
  • Heating & Air-Conditioning Systems
  • Built-in Appliances

THERMAL IMAGING

A full thermal scan of the property is included at no extra cost to pinpoint some of the more elusive issues that can impact a home’s condition. A free moisture meter reading is also included as necessary to narrow down the sources of potential leaks or moisture penetration inside the home.

Commercial Property Inspection Services

Whether you’re thinking about buying a small retail space or investing in a large-scale industrial complex, we’re able to provide a comprehensive inspection of any commercial property. We’ll thoroughly look over the structure of the building(s) and any installed mechanical systems so that we can provide you with a full report of the property’s strengths, areas that need improvement, and any potential defects that we encounter.

Pre-Listing Inspection

Home inspection services are equally valuable to people selling a home as it is to people planning to buy one. Before you make your listing, we’ll perform a full evaluation of the home, checking for any defective areas that you should know about. With this knowledge, you can make repairs as you see fit to preserve the home’s value, and you’ll be able to maintain a higher level of trust with prospective buyers by keeping them informed about existing issues.

New Construction Inspection

This inspection is for homes that are nearing the end of the construction phase. Before the builder’s final walkthrough, we’ll conduct a thorough evaluation of the property’s completed and readily accessible features. If any defects are discovered, the owner of the property will be able to take up the issue with the builders while the window is still open for repairs or improvements to occur.

New Construction Phase Inspections

For this inspection, we’ll arrive to a construction site at three critical phases to evaluate current progress and to ensure that safe construction practices continue to be adhered to so that the buyer is protected. If any issues are discovered, the timing of the inspections will make it possible to work out a resolution without severely impacting the construction timeline.

11th Month Warranty Inspection

After you’ve purchased a new home, you want to make sure that it’s still in the best shape that it can be for as long as possible. Fortunately, for most new home purchases, the builder protects your investment with a 1-year warranty. This inspection should be scheduled before that year is up so that we can determine if any issues are present before the warranty period has ended. If we do find anything wrong, your warranty may prevent you from having to pay the full cost of repair expenses.

Loan Draw Inspections

For ongoing construction on a home, it’s absolutely imperative to make sure that the build process is compliant with the terms agreed upon with the bank. This inspection will take place at several different times during the build to make sure that nothing is in violation of the loan agreement, including materials stored on site and the current progress of construction. By taking this protective measure, you can avoid any unnecessary delays.

Re-Inspections

If an area of a property was found to be defective during a residential or commercial inspection, we’re able to perform a Re-Inspection to give you peace of mind with your prospective investment. We’ll come back to the property after repairs or improvements have been made to assess the previously defective component, ensuring that the original issue is fully resolved and that no other safety problems or defects are evident.

Remodeling and Construction Consultation

Before a construction or remodeling project is set to begin, it’s a good idea to bring in a third party to provide an unbiased opinion on the scope and projected costs. This way, you can be certain that the contractor is giving you an accurate representation of what the project will require.

Materials Estimates

This service will provide you with an accurate estimate of material costs before you begin a remodeling or renovation project. This is especially helpful for individuals who are fixing up houses to sell or rent so that you can be sure you don’t exceed your budget.

Architectural Drawing and Plans

This service is referred to a third-party specialist who will render a plan for whatever construction project you have in mind. This can be a great asset for homeowners who are preparing for a major home remodel.

Thermal Imaging

A thermal scan is included with a Buyer’s Inspection, but it can also be scheduled as a standalone service for customers who don’t necessarily need a home fully inspected. We can use our infrared camera to evaluate any component within a home’s structure. This can be particularly helpful to determine if insulation is installed correctly or if there are other factors contributing to energy loss.

Our inspections start at just $300.

At Spot On Inspection, PLLC, we understand the time-sensitive nature of real estate transactions—that’s why we offer professional property inspections that will accommodate any schedule. We’re available to take appointments 7 days a week, including weekends, evenings, and holidays when necessary. Contact us today to request an appointment.
