Dont' Skip the Home Inspection

Home Inspections

Once your Home Inspection is finished, the easy to read report with digital photos will be completed on site.  If you're not available to be at the inspection, it will be emailed directly to you and your agent. This includes the Foundation, Roof, Structural Components, Mechanical System, Built-in Appliances, and Sprinkler systems.  All reports are by Texas Real Estate Commision rules.  For buyers and their realtors that come to the property, I will go over the report in detail at the end of the inspection. We want you informed and comfortable with this process.  

Close up termites

The termite report, also officially known as a Wood Destroying Insect report is completed along with the home inspection.   This is a separate report and a separate licence.   TDA 0670741.  I have completed around 10,000 reports and over the years less termite activity has been noted.  Mostly because of these inspections educating the general public, contractors and material have improved. We charge you a separate fee, because it is often needed separately for insurance coverage.   If you hear of  other inspection company doing this service for free, they just added it into your overall fee. 

A pool can be a dream come true.  But it is a very important part of a home inspection.  I often find the home to be in great shape and the pool needing multiple repairs.   We do a visual inspection of the pool for structural concern,  mechanical systems, and safety concerns.  If the pool is in poor condition, we will advise you consult a pool contractor so you can get the estimates of repairs needed.  We do not fill a winterized pool or clean the pool.  This should be completed prior to the inspection.  

Level Measurement

We offer a  Foundation measurement using a ZipLevel. If you are concerned about the Foundation, and who isn't in North Texas.   I can measure the slab using a ZipLevel. This can tell you if the slab has any severe movement.   Combined with the visual inspection for brick veneer cracks, uneven door and window frames, drywall cracks, and other concerns can direct you to a foundation company or structural engineer for further evaluation.

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!

“I’ve worked with Ches Graham for almost 20 years. He’s professional & thorough and gives my clients a good home inspection at a reasonable rate for the industry. I always give my clients a list of my favorite inspectors and Ches is always on my list”

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.
