Inspection Services Included In Every Residential Inspection
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.
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.
Robotic Crawlspace Inspection
These HD Cameras get where other inspectors can’t! Even in the tightest spaces our robotic inspection cameras can get in to see the condition of your crawlspace. Why accept that parts of the crawlspace of a pier an beam home are inaccessible when technology can solve the problem? No extra fees.
Additional Inspection Services
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.
We can add-on a Termite Inspection 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.
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.
11th Month Home Inspection
We offer an 11th Month Home 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.
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.
Pre-Listing Home Inspection
Inspections for home sellers can be just as important as inspections for buyers. Our Pre-Listing Home Inspection gives sellers the opportunity to address issues in the home early on before buyers find them during their own inspections. We perform an inspection in accordance with the same SOP as our inspection for buyers.With a Pre-Listing Inspection, your home will be Move-In Certified™ by InterNACHI, which is appealing to buyers and reduce it’s time spent on the market.
