Getting your property inspected by Reliable Home Inspections will provide you with peace of mind. With over 11,000 home inspections conducted, we know the issues common to the Dallas-Fort Worth area.
We provide on-site inspection reports, complete with digital photographs of repair items and mechanical systems. Doing this on-site takes time and we may charge more than other inspectors. We feel that having the ability to review your report at the home is worth the extra time and money.
Our reports includes a foundation measurement using a ZipLevel. Ninety Percent of the foundations we have measured are level within the ASTM standards of one inch every twenty feet. This is an accurate way to determine how level the foundation is currently. This along with other foundation movement indicators, such as stress cracks in the interior or exterior walls, help determine the integrity of the foundation. If movement is indicated, then further evaluation will be recommended. The report is useful for the rest of the home's life and great when you're ready to sell. This is optional and not part of the Texas Standards of Practice.

I’ve been a Realtor for 13+ years and Ches is the only inspector I recommend. He is professional, honest and very knowledgeable. With his 20+ years of experience, you are in the very best hands for the most important part of the home-buying process. He takes the time to walk buyer(s) through the property and explain the findings of the inspection and any current or potential future problems. Ches is prompt and responsive to any questions or concerns my clients or I may have. I know my clients are in good hands with Ches and that’s such a blessing!
Ches Graham has been doing home inspections for our clients for several years and we have been extremely pleased. Ches and his team are very through and take their time in making sure they do a complete inspection for our clients. We like that we can book the inspection on line and look at the available time slots so we can select a time that meets our buyers availability. Ches is very good discussing and explaining the inspection with our clients. Ches and his team takes the time to make sure our buyers understand the report and if they have any questions he will take and show them the issues.
First of all Ches Graham is a no-nonsense direct communicator, but with a sense of humor. He makes my buyers feel at ease and has no issue in speaking to either a buyer or seller on any issue that is found during an inspection. Ches never speaks above anyone’s heads and tells things in layman’s terms.
