Why is this inspection company different?

An inspector in Texas is required to follow the Texas Standards of Practice.  There is a sentence in the "Scope" section that reads.  "The inspector may provide a higher level of inspection performance than required by the standards of practice and may inspect parts, components, and systems in addition to those described by the standards of practice." Not all inspectors do this.

See  the picture on the right? That was written up in an inspection report as a cracked, failing foundation by another inspector who had just charged his clients $800 for an inspection.  Red flags, sirens bells and whistles went off everywhere. This  caused the sellers and buyers  grief and hundreds of dollars to hire a structural engineer. The closing was delayed and all for nothing.

Here's the point. It's not a crack. It's just a a piece of construction debris laying against the foundation. The inspector could have touched it and it would have just fallen off revealing a perfect slab behind it.  All the structural engineer did was move the debris-which is what I will do.

At 1st Choice Real Estate Inspectors not only do we follow  the Texas  and Internachi Standards of Practice  for real estate inspectors we take a step forward and  go beyond the standards.  A real estate inspection is a visual inspection of the  possible defects, deficiencies and or hazards in the building.
