Buyers Home Inspection

Buyer’s Inspection

The Buyer’s Inspection is the most common of our inspection services at Beyond the Bricks, PLLC. We perform a complete walkthrough of the home, visually inspecting safely-accessible systems and components to assess their condition, repair needs, and operation. This information helps homebuyers better understand the building and their financial decision before closing. We follow the TREC Standards of Practice (SOP) during all inspections and include the following visible areas:

  • Structural systems
  • Foundations
  • Grading and drainage
  • Roof covering materials
  • Roof structures and attics
  • Interior walls, ceilings, floors, and doors
  • Exterior walls, doors, and windows
  • Exterior and interior glazing
  • Exterior and interior stairways
  • Fireplaces and chimneys
  • Porches, balconies, decks, and carports
  • Electrical systems
  • Heating, ventilation, and air conditioning systems
  • Plumbing systems
  • Appliances

Our Other Inspection Services

NEW CONSTRUCTION PHASE INSPECTIONS

New Construction Phase Inspections

New Construction Phase Inspections are another one of our popular inspection services. This type of inspection keeps builders and contractors accountable for their work at each individual phase and leads to a higher-quality finished project. After each important phase in construction is completed, we revisit the site to inspect for defects or oversights before the builder moves on to the next task.

PRE-LISTING INSPECTION

Pre-Listing Inspection

A Pre-Listing Inspection is a great way for home sellers to become better acquainted with a home’s strengths and weaknesses. We will thoroughly inspect the property for issues the seller may not be aware of. With this information, the seller can make repairs before listing and go into their negotiations with honesty and professionalism.

NEW CONSTRUCTION INSPECTION

New Construction Inspection

Oversights can be easily made during the construction process, but it is important to catch and correct these issues before the final walkthrough with the builder. We have a keen eye for detail and will thoroughly search the new home for these last-minute problems, giving the builder the opportunity to make the home move-in ready.

11TH MONTH WARRANTY INSPECTION

11th Month Warranty Inspection

When a newly built home is sold with a 12-month builder’s warranty, the best time to have it inspected for defects is during the 11th month. We will come into the home and search thoroughly for issues in the home that the warranty covers, giving the new owner time to request repairs in the final month before taking on the financial responsibility themselves.

POOL INSPECTION

Pool Inspection

Pool Inspections are offered as a standalone service or can be bundled with another one of our inspection services. We are certified by the National Swimming Pool Foundation (NSPF) for this service, during which we inspect the system for malfunctioning components and ensure its safe operation.

Our Technology

THERMAL IMAGING

Thermal Imaging

We use an E6 FLIR Thermal Imaging camera to do infrared scans during our inspections. This state-of-the-art camera shows us areas of heat loss or excessive heat behind home surfaces, indicating to us that there may be hidden moisture intrusion, an issue with insulation, or an electrical hot-spot. This tool allows us to inspect what the naked eye cannot and provide our clients with a more complete inspection.

AERIAL DRONE PHOTOGRAPHY

Aerial Drone Photography

Our Aerial Drone can fly above a home to collect high-resolution images of the overall property and detailed photos of the roof. This tool allows us to thoroughly inspect a home’s roof for damages and condition even if we deem that the pitch or material of the roof makes it impossible to inspect on foot.

MOISTURE METER

Moisture Meter

We use a Moisture Meter during our inspections to measure the level of moisture in the air, helping us determine the location of leaks and the possibility for mold growth.

DIGITAL REPORTS

Digital Reports

Our digital reports are conveniently delivered to clients by email and are easy to use and understand. The photos in the report will enlarge one clicked upon, helping the client see the issues that we saw during the inspection. We invite you to call us upon receiving your report with further questions.
