We are prepared to spot rotting sheathing caused from water leaks. These are common in areas near chimneys, roof vents, sky lights, and valley areas. Trust our team to examine your wood trusses or engineered trusses for cracks or bowing. We also make sure if the roof vents are clear and free from being plugged by animal, bird, or bee nests.

HVAC Inspections

HVAC inspections are heating, ventilation, and air conditioning inspections. San Antonioans know how important their air conditioning systems are, especially in the hot summer months. Because half of the house’s annual energy bill goes to heating and cooling on average, it really pays to ensure your home’s system is running at maximum efficiency.

Texas Pride Home Inspection ensures total inspection of readily openable panels of the central and permanently installed cooling equipment and distribution systems. Our inspectors describe in detail what energy sources it is using, and the cooling systems that are being used. Whether you buying a new or used house, call Texas Pride Home Inspection to do a quality job, and keep your home cool.

Electrical

Electrical issues are most common in old homes, but they can be found in newer homes as well. Not only do our inspectors make sure your electricity is working in your home, they ensure the safety of it too so your house won’t be at risk of being burnt down from faulty electricity.

Routine parts of our home inspections are checking for service drops, service entrance conductors, cables, and race ways. It’s also important to check service equipment, main disconnects, conductors, service grounding, and interior components of service panels and sub panels. Inspections of ground fault circuit interrupters and arc fault circuit interrupters are important to ensure the safety of your home. Our team also reviews installed lighting fixtures, switches, and receptacles.

Trust our expert team at Texas Pride Home Inspections to handle all of these important services for your home’s electrical inspection. If you think you have any electrical problems with your new or used home, call us today.

Listings

Before you put your home on the market it is a recommended that you have your home pre-inspected to avoid any potential problems or delays in the sale of your home and to also save you time and money. This is called a Pre-Listing Inspection, and allows you to see your home through the eyes of a critical and neutral third party. It’s best to be alert for immediate safety issues, or immediate areas of concern before your home goes on the market.

Items to Fix Before Listing

  • Electrical Issues

  • Items that have safety risks or environmental issues

  • Broken steps

  • Loose or missing handrails or guardrails

  • Buried or abandoned oil tanks

  • Improperly hung doors or screens (must replace)

  • Furnace condensation leaks

  • Broken cabinets

  • Plumbing leaks

Attic Inspection

Attic Inspections are essential to inspecting any home. The attic can reflect the history of the home, and provide clues to serious problems that might not be disclosed or even known by the current owner. Even if the roof looks sound and secure from above, you could find broken trusses and rafters inside the attic. A home inspection can avoid further damage, and disclose stress cracks that could be harmful for your home.

Keeping your home well insulated is also essential for attics. Our home inspector team can make sure your attic is properly insulated. Checking the attic insulation can cut down your heating costs in winter, and cooling expenses in the hot Texas summers.

It’s important to look for water damage in the attic as well. Stains on the wood support beams, or on the walls are evidence that water had once leaked or is currently leaking through somewhere. Condensation forming around pipes causes wood to rot as well. Home inspection experts also look for furnaces which are occasionally located in attic spaces. They keep a look out for rusted metal around the furnace.

Termites eat wood from the inside out. That means they leave very little evidence of their presence until an infestation is pretty far along. The warning signs can be subtle, so have our professional home inspectors take a look for the warning signs of them for you.

The termite damage can be either inactive or active. It takes an experienced inspector to tell the difference.

Termites can damage softwood and hardwood lumber products, masonite paneling, composition siding and other construction materials within a house. Cellulose materials such as books, paper, cardboard, wallpaper and the paper covering on drywall are also vulnerable to damage.

Garage Door

Garage door inspections are just as important as any other part of the house. The garage door is the largest moving object in the house. With all the parts under high tension, you need it to be inspected by a careful, trained home inspector. Although the inspector cannot fix any garage door defects they may encounter, they can protect your family and cars by identifying any problems to you. Be sure to have your garage door inspected by a trained garage door technician, if your home inspector recommends you to do so.

Call Texas Pride Home Inspection if you need someone you can trust for a garage door inspection.
