FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

HOW MUCH DOES A HOME INSPECTION COST?

The cost of the inspection is determined by the size and age of the home along with optional added services (termite inspection, pool inspection, etc). A typical base inspection starts at about $425. Compare this to the cost of an appraiser who charges over $500 for 20 minutes at your home! Please contact us anytime and we would be happy to provide you with a quick quote over the phone or via email.

HOW LONG DOES AN INSPECTION TAKE?

An inspection can take from 3-5 hours, depending on the size of the home and the services requested.

DO I NEED TO ATTEND THE ENTIRE INSPECTION?

Some clients prefer to be present for the inspection, while others prefer to meet at the end of the inspection to review the results. Meeting at the end of the inspection is preferable, as the client can avoid the tedious portion of checking all the systems while receiving the benefit of an extensive review of the results.

WHY SHOULD I HAVE A HOME INSPECTION?

Purchasing a home is undoubtedly the largest purchase most will make in their lives. Having a home inspection helps to identify any problems or issues with the home up front, so you don't discover these problems yourself when you least expect. A home inspection gives you the peace of mind that you have made the right purchase and you are armed with the necessary information when walking into your purchase.

No one wants to purchase a home only to discover that the roof needs to be replaced or that the foundation is unstable. A home inspection from Armadillo Inspection prevents these unwelcome and costly surprises.

WHAT KIND OF REPORT IS PROVIDED?

The State of Texas requires that all home inspection reports be provided on Form REI-7-5. Armadillo Inspection has taken this form and added several inspection items and detailed sections to make our report easier to follow and full of information for our clients. Armadillo Inspection also inserts photos of any issues we discover during our inspection to convey each issue clearly and simply.
