Buyer Inspection

Whether you are buying a new home or an existing home a home inspection is a must for anyone who wants to ensure their home has been built well, maintained well and eliminate serious issues that can cost a home owner their investment and worse may be unsafe for a family.

Existing home buyers are focused on current condition of a home that may have had 1, 2 or 10 families live in it and may have had a varied background of maintenance and upkeep along the way. Over time updates have been made. Repairs have been completed. You want to make sure any work performed on your home was done by professionals and performed to best building standards. You may have walked through the house and wondered if a system has been updated or a wall changed. A professional licensed inspector can answer that question.

An inspection in the State of Texas at a minimum is required by law to follow the Texas Real Estate Commissions Standards of Practice. Many inspectors exceed those minimum requirements to further add value for the buyer. After years of inspecting homes and helping families buy safe and comfortable homes we too have added more tools and technology to help better answer the question, what is the current state of this house and how well has been maintained.

We at ServusPartners inspect homes following a model that reflects who we are. We are a family owned business and are primary inspectors are father and daughter.

Our drone makes it quick to discover issues.

Our model and goal is to inspect homes as if it was for our family or our friends.  What level of detail would our brother want in a report. What areas would our fathers be concerned about. Lastly, how would we communicate issues and priorities to those closest to us.

That’s why we spend as much time with out clients as needed. In fact, we offer our clients free support for as long as they want it. That means our clients call us months later to ask a question about the report. Or even years later to get our opinion of a change they want to make or to review a quote a repair person gave them. We are only a phone call away and ifree phone support is offered to all our clients. Some have called us 3-4 years later. All we have to hear is we inspected a house for them, and we are there to help them all we can.

After all, it’s what we would do for our family and friends.

Preventing Water Damage: A leaking roof can lead to significant water damage inside your home. Water intrusion can affect walls, ceilings, insulation, and electrical systems, resulting in mold growth, rotting wood, and compromised structural stability. A thorough roof inspection allows for the early detection of leaks and potential areas of water penetration. By addressing these issues promptly, you can protect your home from water damage and its associated consequences.

Maximizing Energy Efficiency: An efficient roof contributes to a well-insulated home, reducing energy consumption and utility bills. During a roof inspection, professionals can assess the insulation, ventilation, and sealing around roof openings to ensure optimal energy efficiency. By identifying and rectifying any deficiencies, you can enhance the thermal performance of your home and reduce energy waste.

Maintaining Warranty Coverage: Many roofing materials and installations come with warranties that offer coverage against defects or premature failures. However, these warranties often require regular roof inspections and maintenance to remain valid. By adhering to the recommended inspection schedule, you not only maintain warranty coverage but also ensure that any potential issues are addressed promptly, preventing complications down the line.

Residential roof inspections are not just a recommended practice; they are an essential aspect of responsible homeownership. By conducting regular inspections, homeowners can detect early signs of damage, extend their roof’s lifespan, prevent water damage, maximize energy efficiency, maintain warranty coverage, enhance safety, and have peace of mind. Investing in professional roof inspections is a proactive step towards protecting your home, ensuring its longevity, and safeguarding the well-being of your family. Schedule a roof inspection today and take the necessary steps to maintain a secure and well-maintained residential property.
