The General inspection is the “meat” of the inspection process on your new home. All of our inspections are completed following guidelines set forth by the Texas Real Estate Commission; we inspect the home from the roof down to the sprinkler system and everything in between. At the conclusion of the inspection, we will walk you through all of the findings and answer your questions. The benefit to getting a thorough inspection is that you can have a “peace of mind” moving in that you are not buying THE MONEY PIT.
3 reasons you need a general inspection:
- You can negotiate repairs with the seller so that you’re not stuck with post – closing expenses
- Peace of mind that you’re not moving into THE MONEY PIT
- Your “honey-do” list will be MUCH smaller
A homeowner who discovers termite damage will spend an average of $3,000 to repair the damage. Who wants to pay more CASH out of pocket once you move into your new home? Many homeowners are unaware of termite infestation; we don’t want you to be one of them. New research shows that termites cause more damage to homes than fires.
Many kinds of insects destroy wood. When it comes to wood destroying insects, there are many more types than just termites. Dozens of different insect species can infiltrate wood and slowly destroy it, causing structural damage. It’s important to identify the type of insect that is causing the damage in order to remove them. As a safety precaution, it is always a good idea to contact a professional when attempting to identify or remove wood destroying insects. Protect yourself and your biggest investment from an unseen wood eating bug. Call Elite Inspection Group today for your WDI Inspection. We have a 90-day warranty, and this will help prevent you from buying the Money Pit.
It is generally accepted that most of the soils in North Texas consist of expansive clays. This means that when the clays are relatively dry (in the summer months) they shrink, and when they experience an increase in moisture content (typically in the winter/spring months) they expand. Many times, this expansion and shrinkage of the soil is significant and will cause a foundation to move up and down with the soils. This movement can damage your new home’s foundation. The State does require the inspector to give you his/her opinion of the foundation but it is just that, their opinion.
Don’t mess around with just a visual inspection of your home’s foundation; get your foundation measured by Elite Inspection Group. We utilize the latest technology, the Zip Level Pro-2000. This is the same equipment used by Professional Engineers to determine the true levelness of your foundation. We want you to move in with “peace of mind” knowing for a fact that your foundation is in great condition.
