Inspection Services Included In Every Residential Inspection

Infrared Thermology Scanning

Infrared Thermography Scanning

Buy Smart Home Inspections includes Infrared Thermography Scanning with every inspection. We use a state-of-the-art thermal imaging camera which detects both moisture and areas of heat loss within walls, where we otherwise could not see or inspect with the naked eye. This tool allows us to determine if the home has any hidden moisture damage or issues in the electrical system. All suspected moisture issues are validated with a professional grade moisture meter.

Foundation Elevation Measurements

Foundation Elevation Measurements

With expansive soils in North Texas, foundation settlement is a concern. Foundation height measurements are taken with accuracy of 1/10” to determine how level your foundation is and with other indicators can render a more accurate foundation performance assessment. With specialty tools, Buy Smart Home Inspections is able to measure and analyze a home’s foundation at no additional cost, giving our customers additional information to make an informed decision about the condition of the home.
drone Inspection

Drone Inspection

We walk 90% of roofs for inspections! But for those roofs that are inaccessible, we use a drone. The high resolution photos from these aerial cameras give us an up close and thorough roof inspection. Inaccessible roofs are those that are typically easily damaged (such as tile) or unsafe for access.

Additional Inspection Services

Swimming Pool Inspection

Swimming Pool Inspection

Routine Swimming Pool Inspections are important to ensure that each component of the pool is in working order. During these inspections, we determine the condition of the pool’s components and can inform customers about the pool’s safety. These inspections also help customers decide if any upgrades could be useful.

Swimming Pool Inspection

Termite Inspection (WDI)

We can add-on a Termite Inspection (WDI) during a General Home Inspection to check for termites or any other wood destroying insects. This will help give you peace of mind and give you the opportunity to negotiate to have the seller pay for treatment if you are a buyer.

Aerobic Septic System

Aerobic Septic System Inspections

Inspection of on-site septic systems is important to ensure functionality. We inspect the tanks, air pump, water pumps, electrical system  and leach field for deficiencies/maintenance issues and are certified by NAWT (National Association of Wastewater Technicians).  Most systems installed in north Texas in the past 20 years are Aerobic. We do not inspect anaerobic systems.

Swimming Pool Inspection

Irrigation System Inspection

We check your sprinkler control box and zones to verify proper operation. All zones are operated by the inspector to see if the valves function as controlled by the central timer and to validate if there is an anti-siphon valve visible to protect the home water supply from contamination.

11th Month Home Inspection

11th Month Warranty Inspection

We offer an 11th Month Warranty Inspection for homes entering the final months of a builder’s warranty. Often, newly constructed homes will be under a one-year warranty which covers the cost of constructional defects. By having the home inspected during the 11th month, homeowners give themselves time to have any damages repaired without becoming financially responsible for them.
