Here at PTJ Home Defenders, we understand your home is important to you, and we want to help you do what’s best for it. To do that, we offer thorough home inspections that will give you a detailed report on your property’s condition, so you can better prepare for any repair or maintenance needs. Whether you need a home inspection for a property you are hoping to buy or for the home you already own, our team has you covered.
In our home inspections, our team will thoroughly examine your home’s structure and all its major systems, such as the HVAC system, wiring, and more. If you are interested, we can also perform a DOE energy audit and use thermal imaging testing to identify any areas where your home may be losing energy. We’ll assemble our findings into a detailed report for you to reference, and we will go over each point with you, so you understand the state of your property. We can also offer recommendations about which issues should be addressed first and how, as well as how to improve your home’s energy efficiency overall.
“Pat was wonderful for our old home purchase inspection. He was precise and clear on the inspection and noted down all nitty-gritty points well documented. He uses advanced equipment for water seepage using thermal camera and foundation analysis as well. He answered all our questions patiently and, coming from a construction background, was passionate about explaining the technical details with me. I would recommend PAT for any house inspection services.”
We’ll perform a thorough property inspection following Texas state guidelines and codes. We additionally adhere to ASHI standards, which are much stricter. Our services include inspections of:
The home’s foundation, checking for movement or other issues by using a level detector
All interior and exterior walls, windows, and doors
The roof, using a drone to take high-definition photos to check for structural or weather damage
All electrical and plumbing systems (we are certified for septic inspections if applicable)
All mechanical equipment, including the furnace, air conditioner, and appliances
The attic, checking the ductwork and insulation
The sprinkler system, checking one zone at a time
Fencing and any outbuildings
Pools and spas, if applicable (we are certified for pools)
Anything else the inspector feels is important to look at, depending on the individual home
Inspections also include checking for gas leaks and carbon monoxide. We are certified in thermography and include this technology in our inspections. We can even perform a termite inspection by request. Unlike other companies that sub-contract out this service, your termite inspection will be performed by your home inspector.
