Extremely thorough and helpful

“We used Tim both before closing on our home and again before our 1 year warranty expired and he was great to work with. Not only was he always right on time and able to schedule soon after reaching out, his reports were extremely thorough and helpful when meeting with our builder. We are so glad we chose Tim as we always felt he had our best interest in mind.”

Amanda Shelly - Austin

Very valuable service

“Tim’s inspection and complete and detailed report about our new house prior to the drywall going up has been very valuable to us. His inspection found a lot of things that builder missed. I just wanted to say thank you for your professional, insightful, and very thorough job. I will definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a home inspector.”

Michael Huber - Leander

The best inspector

“Tim is by far the most thorough and knowledgeable inspector I have ever dealt with, and I have dealt with a lot of them. Just want to say you are the best inspector I have ever hired - we will use you again.”

Gustav O'Keiff - Austin

Your attention to detail

“Tim is the absolute best home inspector in central Texas. My wife and I were truly impressed with your services. Your attention to detail was impressive and your quality of work shows during our walk through and in your report. Thank you so much for all your hard work. I will pass your name and number to anyone who needs your services.”

Michael Hankemeier - Georgetown

Very impressive inspection

“I thought the inspection was very thorough, and it gave us a guideline of what to look for and point out for our pre-close walkthrough of the house. Our builder even remarked that there were several things on the list that he would've missed unless you'd pointed them out. We were overall very impressed.”

James Bowers - Round Rock

Return on your investment

“We want to thank you for the great job you did on our inspection. We were able to get $1600 in relief and repairs, a 200% return on our investment!”

Steve Sutton - Lakeway

Worth every penny

“You were thorough and thoughtful in your work. I would highly recommend you without any reservations. We appreciate your help very much. I now feel so much better about the house. I will pass your name on to as many of my friends and family as possible!”

Kimberly O’Malley - Spicewood

Extraordinary service

“We were delighted with your service and expedience! You can definitely count on our recommendation to others in the future. I must say, you are very thorough with your work and your professionalism is unmatched.”

Maurice Khollman - Austin

Professional and thorough

“You were very professional and extremely thorough which made us feel more at ease in purchasing our new home. We are very grateful to our friends for recommending you to us. You did a great job and we are very thankful.”

Burks Bauerlein - Leander

A pleasure to work with

The Report

A report identifying the deficiencies that were observed will be emailed to you in Adobe Acrobat PDF format the following day. My findings are listed under "comments," useful information may preceed, and any opinions, notes or recommendations follow. A summary of my findings and digital pictures with highlights appear near the end.

The report will indicate which items were inspected, which items were not inspected, which items were not present, and which items are deficient, defective or not functioning. An Appendix of additional information helpful to the property will be included for your benefit.

After you receive the report, if you have any questions, please give me a call. Do not hesitate to ask questions about any items you do not understand.

The Report is not necessarily a "fix-it" list, nor a legal obligation to correct any problems. Parties are encouraged to come to an agreement on the condition of the property before discontinuing negotiations or terminating a transaction. The Report is intended to aid in those discussions.
