Many homes were built in the Dallas – Ft. Worth area from 1980 to the early 2000’s, and we see some common issues with them. Make sure you’re covered with our recommended list of services!
Wood-Destroying Insect InspectionOne of the greatest threats to your home is from termites and other wood-destroying insects. A WDI inspection includes a visual examination of the interior and exterior of the home to find any signs of existing or previous activity as well as identifying conducive conditions for these troublesome insects.
Gas Systems/Carbon Monoxide TestA comprehensive Gas Systems/Carbon Monoxide test includes: Verifying that CO detectors are in place in the required areas: in the vicinity of the bedrooms, on each level of the house, and in the vicinity of any attached garage. Testing all accessible Carbon Monoxide Alarms in the House. Sampling the air in the vicinity of all the fuel-fired appliances to determine CO levels.
Foundation ElevationA foundation elevation survey will show differential movement of a home’s foundation where the foundation is out of level and areas to watch for possible future damage.
Thermal/Infrared EvaluationThermal imaging cameras use heat signatures to identify a variety of problems that could not be seen with the human eye: such as plumbing leaks behind walls, ceilings and floors; hot electrical wires buried behind walls or switch plates; missing insulation on walls and ceilings; air leaks in the building envelope; and air leaks in the HVAC duct system. Thermal Imaging is one of the most informative, effective and accurate tests a home inspector can perform for you.
