Home Pro Inspections Offers Numerous Inspection Services to Fit Your Needs
Residential Home Inspection Austin, TX
We believe in thorough, visual home inspection of a property’s interior and exterior, often performed during the contract review period. Then, Condominium inspections may include common areas, and it can also consist of a checklist of findings, detailed home manual, and telephone support for the duration of property ownership. Plus, we at Home Pro make sure that you completely understand the home inspection process from start to finish.

Home Pro also offers commercial inspections. Moreover, we pay close attention to detail and budget figures to allow buyers or investors to make a perfect business decision within a specific economic context or negotiate the latent deficiencies carefully.

All these services are offered at less than the cost of an engineering inspection, which would not include price figures. Home Pro also inspects Malls, Multi-Unit Buildings, Strip Centers, Church’s, etc.
Construction Consulting (Phase Inspections)
We make sure that visual monitoring of a new home construction or the building is done according to conventional practices, relevant codes, and construction standards. We include some of the following in the Consultation: written report, checklists, and photographs. Also, reports are delivered the same day as the phase inspection. This type of inspection is generally done on new construction, commercial work, gut rehab jobs, and inspections investigating a particular problem, etc.
Capital Reserve Study
We always start with a detailed inspection of the entire complex/building to help determine future budgets for reserve funds, which includes narrative reports photographs, and cost figures. The intent of the Capital Reserve Study (CRS) is to visually screen for “exposed to view” readily accessible systems of the common area of the property, which may need significant repair and or are “significantly deficient” or life safety problems. We also provide data on life expectancy of materials and remaining useful life in all these areas and develop a budget or repair-replacement figure for over 10 years. Additionally, Capital Reserve Studies are included in Commercial Inspections.

Things to know before a home inspection
A home inspector goes through a comprehensive checklist. Nothing is hidden from them, and they look at literally everything. You should prepare for the inspection beforehand to avoid unnecessary blemishes on the report.
Here are some things to double-check before your home inspection:
- Keep receipts of any maintenance or routine services you’ve ever had on your premises will help. Organize them and have them ready to show to inspectors and buyers. For example, furnace serviced, chimney sweep, filters changed in HVAC, water heater serviced, etc.
- Clear out the clutter in spaces like the attic, garage, basement, and crawl spaces as our inspectors will need to get in there to check for moisture or perhaps damage. If they can’t access it, they’ll just mark it as “uninspectable,” which could prolong the inspection process.
- Check for clogs by running waterin every sink and bath. Clear any minor clogs before the inspection, as it can signify a plumbing issue in the report.
- Replace the filters in the HVAC system. Dirty air filters can compromise the air quality in your home and will raise a red flag for the inspector.
- Make sure the inspector can access the furnace, electrical panel, and water heater.
- Make sure all light bulbs are working and not burnt out. If your light bulbs don’t work, it could be a sign of electrical issues.
- Slope dirt away from the foundation on the exterior to avoid basement water issues, which many inspectors look for.
- Proactively address any bugs, especially carpenter ants or termites. In any case, any sign of an infestation is bad for your house.
- Put a cap on unused gas lines, chimneys, and flues to prevent debris and clogs. If the caps or lids are missing, toxic fumes could be released into the house.
- Trim trees or low-hanging branches that are too close to the roof. They can increase the possibility of roof damage and give rodents access to chimneys and other openings.
- Repair any cracked windows and broken screens.
- Lock up pets while the inspector is doing his/her job.
Buying a home is sometimes the largest single investment a homebuyer ever makes. Homebuyers should strive to learn as much as they can about the house before buying it to help minimize unpleasant surprises as well as unexpected difficulties. A home inspection may identify the need for major repairs, and maybe the need for maintenance to keep it in good shape or builder oversights.
In the most basic sense, a home inspector is a qualified professional who visually inspects the structure and components of your home and looks for any immediate or any potential problems.
They also provide a written report to you with a description of problem areas and may also highly recommend for further evaluation. If you like, you can also go over the home inspection report with your real estate agent (or broker) to decide how the results may affect the purchase of your future home.
Through the home inspection process, homebuyers can have a better understanding of their prospective house, which allows them to make informed decisions with confidence. If a homeowner is planning to sell their home, a home inspection can allow them to make repairs that will put their house in better selling condition.
During a home sale, there are two types of home inspections - a buyer’s inspection and a seller’s inspection (also known as a pre-listing inspection). A buyer’s inspection occurs after the buyer makes an offer on the home before closing the sale. After the inspection, the buyer is in a position to renegotiate their offer or request repairs if specific issues come up.
A seller’s home inspection takes place before the home is listed. Some sellers also choose to get their home inspected when they begin to prepare their house for sale to fix any potential issues beforehand and save time in the closing process.
The home inspection is a valuable experience for both the home buyer and the future homeowner. Your inspector should allow you to attend the inspection, for you to see first-hand what potential problems exist now or may arise sometime in the future. Knowing what is normal and what a problem looks like will help you in maintaining your home later.
Knowing the amount of time the inspection will take is important because you usually have to arrange a time with the current owner and the realtor for the inspector to examine the house. Since an inspection generally involves looking at roofing, pipes, wiring, and other areas that may be hard to reach, it can take hours to complete. The Austin home inspector from Home Pro will provide you with an accurate estimate of how long the inspection is expected to take.
Yes, you should ask questions to your home inspector & always ensure that you fully understand the report. If there are any areas of the report you are unable to grasp, don’t be afraid to ask. You are spending your money after all, and you should make sure you are thoroughly familiar with the investment you are making.

Michael and Bee H.
The inspection found significant problems with the property that were not disclosed by the seller. To our surprise we negotiated a further reduction in the purchase price. The inspection completed by Home Pro clearly led to significant savings in our real estate purchase.

Brian and Becca S.
We utilized the services of Home Pro after an extensive remodeling of our home. It enabled us to have our contractor remedy a number of shortcomings in his work.
Nathan has proven his value time and time again to us in our real estate transactions. He is meticulous in his inspections and has the necessary industry knowledge to understand what’s what and what matters most. We highly recommend Nathan and look forward to continuing to refer all of our clients, family and friends to ensure they make an educated purchase.
Nathan went above and beyond our expectations when inspecting our home. He was very thorough, and took the time to explain and show us everything in detail. He is professional, knowledgeable, and courteous. I highly recommend Home Pro Inspections, and will definitely be using them again in the future.
Nathan’s performance was exceptional. He was prompt, professional, and knowledgeable, but what set him apart was his willingness to explain his findings in detail. I followed him around for hours as he patiently explained each issue we discovered. His report was so much more meaningful because I clearly understood each item, including why it was a problem and how to resolve it. Additionally, Nathan’s sense of personal ownership was awesome. When we discovered a leak in the roof, Nathan spent a good hour crawling around in the attic and on the roof until he was confident that he understood the root cause (and solution) to the problem. I highly recommend Nathan and will definitely use him again.
I am a Real Estate Investor and I have been using Nathan with Home Pro Inspections for the last 18 months. He does a very thorough inspection and does not mind when you watch him and ask him questions while he is doing the inspection. He emails the report within 24 hours so he really offers good and fast service. His experience as a Home Builder adds value, and not only informs me of what system or component needs repair, but also what the repair may cost. To me it is very important to knowing the real condition of a property before I purchase it. I rely on his expertise and highly recommend him.
I highly recommend Nathan at Home Pro Inspections. His reports are very thorough and extensive. They even include estimates on repairs you may need, which may help when negotiating the price with the seller. I truly appreciate the time, effort, and accuracy Nathan put forth in his inspection of my new house. Thanks Nathan!
Nathan is awesome! Thourogh, Reliable, and Dependable!
Brian and Robin A.
