What is a Home Inspection?    

A home inspection is a non-invasive visual examination of a residential dwelling, performed for a fee, which is designed to identify observed material defects within specific components of said dwelling. 

Components may include any combination of mechanical, structural, electrical, plumbing, or other essential systems or portions of the home, as identified and agreed to by the Client and Inspector, prior to or during the inspection process.  

A home inspection is intended to assist in evaluation of the overall condition of the dwelling. The inspection is based on observation of the visible and apparent condition of the structure and its components on the date of the inspection and not the determination of future conditions. 

A home inspection will not reveal every problem that exists or ever could exist, but only those material defects observed on the day of the inspection.  

A Material defect is a problem with a residential real property or any portion of it that would have a significant adverse impact on the value of the property or that involves an unreasonable risk to people on the property. The fact that a structural element, system or subsystem is near, at or beyond the end of the normal useful life of such a structural element, system or subsystem is not by itself a material defect.  
An Inspection report shall describe and identify in written format the inspected systems, structures, and components of the dwelling and shall identify material defects observed. Inspection reports may contain recommendations regarding conditions reported or recommendations for correction, monitoring or further evaluation by professionals.  

Pre-Listing Inspections 

Eventually your buyers are going to conduct an inspection. You may as well know what they are going to find by getting there first. Having an inspection performed ahead of time helps in many other ways:  

It allows you to see your home through the eyes of a critical third-party. It helps you to price your home realistically. It permits you to make repairs ahead of time so that ...     Defects won't become negotiating stumbling blocks later.     There is no delay in obtaining the Use and Occupancy permit.    

You have the time to get reasonably priced contractors or make the repairs yourself, if qualified. It may encourage the buyer to waive the inspection contingency. It may alert you of items of immediate personal concern, such as radon gas or active termite infestation.

It may relieve prospects concerns and suspicions. It reduces your liability by adding professional supporting documentation to your disclosure statement. It may alert you to immediate safety issues before agents and visitors tour your home.

"Note: Just as no two home inspectors and no two reporting systems are alike, no two inspection reports, even if performed on the same property at the same time, are alike.

This pre-listing inspection report is performed for my client, the home seller, with the cooperation and assistance of my client/home seller. It assumes full disclosure on the part of my client/home seller.

My client may choose to share my report with others, but it was performed solely  for my client. And although we perform all inspections and writes all reports objectively without regard to the client's personal interests, additional inspections, which of course would reveal and report matters differently, should be considered."   Roof problems?  Oh dear.  Maybe we should just look elsewhere!  

Multi-Unit Inspections 
Duplexes, Triplexes, Quadraplexs  

These inspections are handled the same as an existing structure inspection, but, they are discounted somewhat as to the amount of units that are in the building or complex. The reporting may alter slightly depending on the number of units.

These inspections can also be handled  the same as a pre-listing inspection. Buyers are certainly going to add all of the costs together for repairs and probably little extra for having to deal with all of the repairs no matter how great or insignificant the repairs may be. Come armed with a pre-listing inspection report on these units and cut out the bargaining and possible loss of a prospective buyer.  

New Construction
Pre-Drywall Inspections  

This Inspection is extremely important! Do to the large amount of materials concealed within your walls (plumbing, electric, framing, bracing, brackets, venting, hold down bolts, etc.) the best time to ensure that all of this has been done properly is to inspect it before closing it in.

I know that we only mentioned a few items, but the actual list of things to check for is quite extensive. This is the only opportunity for this type of inspection. This inspection also includes the exterior walls and roof also. The quality, life expectancy, the durability, storm readiness to name a few are all in bedded under finish roofing materials, siding materials, interior wall and ceiling finishes.

Give yourself piece of mind knowing that all the trades that have applied there skills to the building of your new home have not missed one detail before it gets covered up.

Let Castle Home Inspection Services give you the assurance that your home is constructed the way it should be. 

New Construction
Pre-Closing Inspections  

The new construction home inspection is done prior to closing on your newly built home. It consists of the same inspection as an existing residential home inspection with more scrutiny of all components of your new home. After all, you are buying a new home not an existing home. All fit and finishes are checked unlike an existing home inspection where only major deficiencies are highlighted.  

One Year Warranty Inspections  

All new homes are covered by a builders warranty for a period of one year with some exceptions to a longer structure warranty.  Before your warranty runs out you should make absolutely sure that everything is functioning as it should.  The builder will still be responsible at this time.

Why should you come out of pocket for needed repairs or replacement on your heat pump, water heater, repairs to your roof, etc.?  

Apartment Buildings  

Apartment Buildings are priced and inspected differently than a home.

The Inspection procedures are different in many ways, especially for commercial applications. Please call us for all commercial properties and Apartment complexes so we may discuss your needs.  

Castle Home Inspection Service of Fort Worth of Fort Worth Texas performs inspections to all of the cities above but those cities are not the limit of area we cover.

Having a Home Inspection performed on your new home, existing home or business can (and sometimes does) save you thousands in unexpected expense. Be one of the growing numbers of home buyers (95% or more) that have taken away the fear of added expense in their purchase.
