The value of a home inspection or engineering design comes from the potential cost of the issues it uncovers. We offer thorough inspections and engineering reports at competitive rates to ensure you get the most value, ultimately saving money and gaining confidence in your purchase.
We understand that you're busy. We'll work with you to schedule your engineering issue or home inspection at a time that works well for you. Although we strongly encourage you to tag along, your presence at the inspection is not required.
Even the most experienced and capable engineer or home inspectors are capable of making mistakes. We carry Errors & Omissions insurance, as well as General Liability and Professional Liability insurance, so you can rest easy.
We are Professional Engineers licensed in the state of Texas to practice engineering. We have also been certified by AHIT, the largest home inspector training institution in North America. AHIT provides some of the highest quality education in the home inspection industry. We are also certified professional inspectors by the Texas Real Estate Commission (TREC), license #23449.
As Professional Engineers, we offer structural design services from planning through to design and construction. Whether you're looking for structural beam design, foundation design, structural framing design, or something else — we have you covered for your residential or commercial property.
For your residential or commercial needs, we provide visual structural inspections to look for damage or signs of stress and fatigue. We can perform structural inspections for the foundation, load-bearing walls, attic framing, and more to report on the state of the structure and recommendations if repairs are needed.
When it comes to renovations and remodeling, removing walls is a great way to open up the space. But what if those walls are load-bearing components of the home's structure? That's when you'll need a Professional Engineer to evaluate the situation and design a solution to avoid the risk of serious structural failures.
Our principal held an evening session for Grand Central Park home owners in Conroe, Texas. Topics included home maintenance 101, what to expect when ordering a home inspection, fire and safety issues, and more. Great success!

Purchasing a new home also means buying that home's problems. With a pre-purchase home inspection you can see exactly what you're buying. Problems discovered during the inspection could allow you to renegotiate to offset the costs of repairs — potentially saving you thousands of dollars. We'll even help you become familiar with the property.View Details
Sometimes selling your home can be just as much of a roller coaster as buying one. Getting a pre-listing home inspection can help ensure a quick and smooth transaction. You can enter the selling process with confidence that there won't be any nasty surprises. You'll also avoid delays, which could last for weeks or even months.View Details
Mechanical inspections differ from standard property inspections in that the mechanical inspection focuses on the heating & cooling system, plumbing, electrical, and water heater. The mechanical inspection does not include the roof, exterior, gutters, doors, windows, etc.
Protect your business with a commercial building inspection. We offer inspections on many commercial properties such as apartment buildings, industrial buildings, office buildings, retail spaces, restaurants, and more. We'll uncover valuable information regarding the structure and foundation, roof, electrical, plumbing, HVAC, pavement systems, etc.View Details
Unfortunately, new does not always mean perfect. In fact, new doesn't even guarantee good. Material defects and human error during the construction process can lead to expensive problems later on. A new construction home inspection can help identify these problems early, when they're cheaper to fix. Some issues may even be covered under warranty.View Details
Don't release your builder from their warranty until you've had your home thoroughly examined by an experienced inspector. An end of home warranty inspection is a great opportunity to fix problems from faulty workmanship or materials — problems the builder should be accountable for. Many items we find are difficult to notice and could become a major safety or financial concern over time, leaving you to deal with the mess.View Details
An annual home maintenance inspection will help to identify potential problems before they can become major financial or safety issues. With a trained eye, we know where and how to look for problems that might go unnoticed for years. A home maintenance inspection covers common problem areas including the roof and attic, basement and foundation, grading and drainage, electrical systems, water heating systems, and much more.View Details
A home inspection is limited to what the inspector can see. Thermal imaging (infrared) gives us a whole new way of seeing, and can detect problems that are invisible using more conventional methods. Thermal imaging is great for detecting moisture issues, electrical problems, and even areas where energy loss is occurring.View Details
If you're looking to buy home with a pool or spa, then it's strongly advised to get a pool and spa inspection. While these features are highly sought after, they can also be very expensive to maintain and repair. A pool & spa inspection includes checking the pool's structure, safety features, equipment, as well as the surrounding deck.
Check faucets and showers, looking for visible leaks as well as testing water pressure. Identify the types of pipes used, if visible. Identify the location of the main water shutoff valve.
Identify the type of wiring, test all outlets and make sure there are GFCIs installed where needed to protect from electrical shock. Inspect the electrical panel for safety issues and fire hazards.
Determine the age of the furnace and air conditioner, whether or not they function properly, and possibly recommend repairs or maintenance.
Determine the age of the water heater and check for proper installation. We can also determine the condition and possibly give an estimated remaining life span of the unit.
Check for proper ventilation. A poorly ventilated dryer exhaust can be a serious fire hazard.
Test smoke detectors and ensure that the garage wall, if present, has the proper fire rating and is undamaged. Also check the fireplace for proper installation and maintenance.
Check for visible leaks, properly secured toilets, proper ventilation to prevent moisture related issues, and more.
If possible, check for structural damage and proper ventilation. Also check insulation and ensure that nothing is ventilated directly into the attic, such as the bathroom.
Check for damaged or missing siding, cracks, and excessive soil contact which can be an invitation for pests.
Check for possible foundation failure, indicated by cracks or settling.
Check to ensure that the ground slopes away from the house, which prevents water from entering the house or causing damage to the foundation.
If accessible and visible, check for roof damage or poor installation that may allow for water penetration as well as checking the condition of the gutters.
Test the garage door for proper functionality, check for proper ventilation to prevent carbon monoxide poisoning, and check for risks of explosion from ignition sources too close to the floor.
