Construction Inspections

leftborderpad1a

If you are building a home and need the required construction inspections for the county then you came to the right place. We are full code certified to meet the requirements of Texas HB 2833 for homes built in unincorporated areas.

Welcome Home

Thank you for visiting. Jim has been performing Galveston County Home Inspections for over 20 years and has over 21 years of homebuilding experience. Jim personally performs every inspection and does not sub-contract out to other inspectors you know nothing about. If you have a question you call Jim; not a call center. Our philosophy for each client is simple; Jim will inspect the property as if he were going to buy it. He will be there for you before, during and after the inspection.

We don't use a pre-determined checklist inspection because you can't pre-determine problems or property condition. What kind of inspection is that?

Our
long-standing and proven inspection protocol provides you with a much more understanding of the property, its condition, the systems, and the kind of maintenance that will be necessary to keep it in good condition.

There are huge differences between home inspectors and reports. Like all professions or trades, the majority are rather mediocre. A percentage are spectacularly bad. An even smaller percentage are very, very good. You want one of the very best. Call Jim at 281.337.4052 today. Jim is often the first source for other inspectors and builders for questions and answers.

These people all trust Jim. Shouldn’t you have him on your side?

"Thank you so much for being an awesome person! You are a very thorough inspector and will be forever used and recommended in the future."
T & J - Pearland

"I inspect homes too but I wanted you to inspect mine"  
T.T. - Houston

"
After all these years of buying homes this was the first time I felt I knew what I was buying with your inspection" 
Dr. J.E. - Pearland

"The inspectors I've seen in the past do not provide even a percentage of what you provide"  V.M. - League City

"I wanted to thank you again for your detailed inspection
and excellent reports."
J.M. - Pearland

"On my last house the inspector told the agent that everything will be fine. The house wi
ll pass. The problem was he told her that before the inspection even started. I wasn't going to use that kind of inspector this time".
M.L. - League City

""The builder said he wouldn't have sold me the house knowing it was going to be inspected. I want to know what they are hiding".
H.N. - League City

"After your recent inspection of a one year old "as-is" foreclosed builder home we requested structural repairs. The bank saw the photos and the references to building codes and opted to repair than give thousands of dollars in price cuts; the leverage of your report gave us the stronger position."

S. P., Kemah

"Hey Jim, just got back from the walkthrough with your report in hand. They pretty much didn't give us any lip about any of it -- the dryer booster fan and framing stuff included -- I was really surprised.

Nonetheless, I have to say this is the first inspection I've had that I really felt was worth the money -- thank you so much for all of your insights; the came in very handy today, and I suspect that they will continue to do so for warranty and maintenance issues in the future.

Thanks again, and we'll be sure to recommend you to anyone else buying in the area."

Regards,
J& M, Sienna Plantation

"Jim,

I wanted to drop you a brief note to tell you that, surprisingly, they took care of every issue you documented. And did it with a smile.

On the day of our walk through, they had a few contractors back to work on some items. One was fixing the larger heater unit. One was working on the fixing the side building foundation issues and the other literately was removing all windows and carefully remounting and then checking to ensure they were sealing correctly on the top (per your suggestion).

They carefully went over your list and showed me what they had done to fix (even things like the messy breaker box job outside).

Your inspection was priceless Jim. Best money I ever spent.

I feel sorry for anyone who purchases a home and doesn’t get an inspector of your caliber.

Thanks again for all of your help.

Regards,
Jim

Inspection Standards

How Was Your Inspection?

If your inspection doesn't or didn't clearly pay for itself maybe you had the wrong inspector.

If your inspector knows nothing about coastal construction (Galveston, Brazoria, Chambers, part of Harris, etc.) requirements then what is he or she looking for?

Home Inspections since 1989; New

March 2011 image on a home put up for sale by its owner 1-year after it was built. The dark spots are water inside the wall.

In February 2009, Texas adopted a upgraded inspection standards of practice which according to the state "that more accurately reflect current technology, codes, and practices that form the basis of many of the standards." There is no grandfathering based on the age of the property.

Texas does not require inspectors to be code certified so look at qualifications before you hire one.

A Thermal Infrared Scan offers us another look at things in a different way.

See if any inspector
is code certified for free. Most are not as certification is not required by the state to have a license
