Pat is the best in what he does. He is taking care of our house needs for three years now. He is very kind, and extremely helpful. I highly recommend him. Thanks Pat for everything.

Lone Star ASHI Certified

Lone Star ASHI is the Texas chapter of the American Society of Home Inspectors (ASHI). Having this certification is the gold standard of home inspections in the state of Texas and we’re licensed by the Texas Real Estate Commission. Very few Texas home inspectors meet ASHI requirements.

Certified Master Thermographer

We use thermal imaging to discover hidden areas and potential problems that aren’t seen by the naked eye.

Licensed WDI technician

Wood Destroying Insect reports (WDI) can only be completed by a licensed professional. With PTJ Home Defenders, there’s no need to call a separate pest control company. We make your home inspection services convenient for you.

Certified for pool and septic inspections

Pool repairs and septic system repairs can be costly and deserve a good inspection before you purchase a home.

Go a step further with thermal imaging home inspections

We offer an additional step to your home inspection that is revolutionizing the home buying and selling process. At PTJ Home Defenders we are a Certified Master Thermographer which means we have the technology and equipment to dive deeper into a home inspection to uncover potential underlying issues. Thermal imaging is essentially heat imaging. The technology and equipment used to look at warm and cold heat signatures can uncover hidden areas of concern. For example, leaks will absorb heat energy revealing a cool signature with our camera. We can detect issues with roofing, plumbing, electrical, walls, and even pests with thermal imaging. Our expertise and training allow us to accurately interpret the results and how to deal with them. No more buying a home only to find a leak that was undetected or an issue with the HVAC. Keep in mind when purchasing a home, homes are not free from defects and flaws, but our assessments are intended to fully disclose the condition of the property.
