Comprehensive Home Inspection Overview

In Texas, a home inspection covers every aspect from roof to foundation and everything in between. This includes HVAC systems, plumbing, electrical components, appliances, and even irrigation systems and pools.

Consistent Inspection Process

At Seberg Property Inspections, our inspection process remains consistent across houses, ensuring no detail is overlooked. The journey begins at the front door and involves a room-by-room examination, inside and out.

Exterior Inspection: From Broad View to Fine Details

Starting outside, the exterior inspection begins with a broad view of the home, scanning for defects in walls, foundation, grading, and drainage. A closer examination follows, focusing on finer details such as the AC condenser, electrical panel, and sprinkler heads.

Roof Inspection: Two-Lap Precision

Moving to the roof, a thorough two-lap inspection is conducted using a ladder to access the roof or drone if the roof is too high or the slope is too steep. This includes scrutinizing roofing material, flashing details, gutters, and a final review of the exterior sections in the report.

Interior Inspection: Attic to Every Room

Venturing back inside, attention turns to the attic, where appliances and overall conditions are examined. The inspection then proceeds through each room, with meticulous checks of floors, walls, ceilings, windows, electrical components, and switches.

Specialized Bathroom Inspection

In bathrooms, specific checks include ensuring stoppers hold water, assessing faucet functionality, and running water to mimic typical usage. Special attention is given to hydromassage therapy tubs, evaluating functionality and general condition.

Advanced Technology: Infrared Camera Inspection

Utilizing an infrared camera, a second walkthrough is conducted to identify potential issues like insulation problems or water intrusion. Infrared technology is also employed in the attic to inspect the duct system and at the electrical panel to identify overheating.

Conclusion: Guiding You Through Findings

Upon completion of the inspection, Seberg Property Inspections guides you through significant findings, addresses your questions, and ensures everything is returned to its original state. With our commitment to efficiency, you’ll receive a detailed report the same day.
