Houston Inspections

Looking for a house is fun. Finding one is a bit stressful. Houston Inspections made it easier. They were on time and fit me into their schedule and with only a few days notice. I was onsite when they arrived. They sent out two inspectors and those guys were all over that house and under it (pier and beam)! Both of them were diligent and focused. I got the report that evening which I thought was extraordinarily fast. The report was detailed and contained photo illustrations of exactly what they were talking about. The guys were really nice and professional and answered all of my questions. They even let me know items not within the scope of their inspection and how I could get those checked or remedied if warranted. I would recommend them and call them again.

I highly recommend them! They inspected our home and were very thorough and professional. We were first time home buyers so everything was new to us and the inspector walked us through everything on the inspection with pictures and emailed it to us on the spot. Office staff was friendly as well. I received two emails before service - 1 to confirm appointment and 1 to remind us of our appointment. They were great; I will use them anytime I have a need in the future.

I was referred to Houston Inspections by my realtor whom I trust. After working with them, I would recommend them as the only inspection company that anyone would need to call. They were timely and pleasant and I felt like I could trust them. Their reports were meaningful and very valuable. I highly recommend them and I would call them again.

My boyfriend and I worked with Shawn during our stressful house-buying process. He inspected not one but two houses for us. I was impressed with his professionalism and detailed reports. He reviewed the findings extensively with us, answering any and all questions as well as following up with us at a later date. I have complete confidence in his assessments and would recommend he and Houston Inspections to anyone. I am thankful that at least this aspect of the process was made easier for us.

I needed an inspection on a 2250 sq ft. house that we placed an offer on. Since there was no option period as the seller was a relocation company, we were nervous about what might go wrong with the house. Ronnie was there before we got to the property. The whole inspection took around 3 hours, it was done very thorough and in a professional manner. Ronnie also explained to us when he found deficiencies around the house and helped us estimate what the cost might be to fix such. We couldn't be happier with the service we got and I will definitely recommend Houston Inspections.

Houston Inspections has been an incredible asset to my buyer clients. They have performed dozens of inspections for my clients and I can attest to their highly skilled inspectors, cutting edge equipment, and excellent customer service. The inspectors are very hands on and always available to answer client questions to help them understand what they are seeing in the reports so they can negotiate the best possible outcome for repairs. 24 hour turn-around on reports and online payment are just the icing on the cake!

– Rianne Sanchez, Keller Williams Realty

Ronnie's professionalism, knowledge and honesty are second to none. Houston Inspections should be honored to have an employee dedicated to his work and his attention to detail, not only protecting the buyer but the seller as well. In the future, if inspection services are needed for myself or anyone inquiring, your company and Ronnie will most certainly be recommended.

Thank you so much for your follow up. We received a very thorough and comprehensive inspection and are very pleased with the report!

Shawn Emerick and his company, Houston Inspections, provided outstanding service to my family during our acquisition of our new home in 2012. His report was not only timely, but also very detailed. The report provided a great insight into the current state of the home and allowed us to make a fair offer. It also provided us with a checklist, that to this day, I use to address the required repairs. He and his staff were extremely professional and should be considered a model for other to follow in the industry. I would, without hesitation, recommend Mr. Emerick and his company to my friends and colleagues.

So thorough! Super!

– Jeff W.

Thank you for providing the report, it was very clear and thorough...we walked through the report twice with the builder and they found it to be very detailed and useful in pointing out areas that were missed by them. Thank you for your work, Shawn. I will definitely be recommending you.

We hired Houston Inspections to do a general, termite and sprinkler inspection for a home that was built in the 1930's with additions in the 1980's. Ronnie Hagelberger and Dennis Inman came out to do the home inspection and they were absolutely wonderful! They were both so nice and explained everything (both positive and negative) in the house. The PROS: They do a very thorough job. They use thermal imaging cameras to detect moisture in the walls, and they inspected the crawl space under the house. We received the inspection reports first thing the next day and it was complete with pictures showing any issues they had found. I truly enjoyed working with them and they did a fantastic job with the inspection and the report write up.

Shawn has performed inspections on 2 homes that we have bought. We have found him to be thorough and extremely detail oriented and would use him again if we buy another home.

– Mary H.

I wouldn't think of buying until Houston Inspections performs the inspection. Compared to other companies, Houston Inspections provides an incredibly thorough report so you know exactly what you're getting. As a bonus, the inspectors are prompt, knowledgeable, caring, and professional. There is no one better in Houston so don't even think of calling anyone else!

– Amy B.

Buying a home can be a very stressful time. Houston Inspections takes away that stress by providing you with a complete inspection report of your home that leaves you feeling well informed of what you are about to purchase. The inspectors have top notch experience in their field and are always willing to spend extra time with you answering all of your questions. Houston Inspections gives us peace of mind!

– Karl O.

Houston Inspections have a great understanding of the industry as well as a personal approach. They are professional, reliable and local - all of which factor into knowing the Houston landscape. They are the best in the business.

– Ruth Ann Johnson, Principal, Creative Director, CAKE COMMUNICATIONS

The staff was very professional. Setting up an appointment was easy, and they sent reminders via email. The inspector (Dennis) was outstanding. He took his time doing the inspection, and you never got a sense that he was in a hurry or careless. In fact, he stopped periodically to point out how things worked. At the end of the inspection, he went over some of his findings and very patiently answered all my questions. I strongly recommend them!!

The home inspector was professional, very punctual and knowledgeable about the obvious items to look at when a home inspection is performed. His report was very detailed and contained color photos which was a great help to explain items that needed to be repaired prior to my move in.

We contacted Houston Inspections to complete a home inspection for us as we were purchasing a "New to Us" home - although the home was built in the 1970's. While on the exterior things looked fine enough, Shawn and his team were able to detect active water leaks, electrical issues and identify structural issues which - at the time were stable - but had a strong risk for immediate future need to address which would have cost tens of thousands to repair.

Their thorough assessment from the pool to the HVAC, roof (with the drone) and all the other areas led us to walk away from the transaction as informed clients.

When we found another home, we again contacted Shawn and Houston Inspections. This house was in far better shape. After their inspection, they encouraged us to follow up with a separate and more thorough HVAC inspection as something wasn't "right". This led to the discovery of two heaters with rusted out heating elements that were not only releasing carbon monoxide into the attic, but also burning the outside of the units. All unaware to the homeowner. The homeowner contacted the home warranty company who indicated nothing was wrong. We contacted then a third party which took pictures and agreed with Houston Inspections initial findings as well as the original HVAC inspector and the units were taken out of service and replaced the first day we moved in. When the old units were removed we could see the holes! ALL thanks to the watchful eye and well trained staff at Houston Inspections.

Chris arrived early, was very professional and thorough. The report was very accurate and complete. We would hire them again for certain. The office was very efficient and cooperative. They have certainly earned their high rating on Angie's List.

From the first phone call to receiving the inspection report, everything couldn't go any smoother. My inspector, Nick, was fantastic. He arrived a little early and immediately went to work. Nick was extremely thorough and explained to me all the potential issues and observations he noted. Despite my daily visits and inspections since the first day of construction, Nick was still able to find some issues that I wouldn't have ever known. I also received the inspection report very quickly. I would recommend anyone shopping for an inspection to go with Houston Inspections and ask for Nick!

Being a first time home buyer I really don't have a comparison. This process was very simple and easy for me. My inspector was Ronnie, easy guy to talk to and very personable. He even arrived early and had already started by the time I got there. Since I'm buying a 1/1 loft in EaDo so I don't have some of the typical inspections someone buying a home would have. Either way Ronnie was great, the company is fast and I would use them again without question. No issues!

I couldn't be happier with the service Houston Inspections provided. I was buying my first home and Shawn walked me through every aspect of the inspection so that I would have a complete understanding of the structural integrity of my potential purchase. Would highly recommend them and will definitely use them again in the future.

My experience working with these guys was great! As a first time home buyer, I wanted the best, and they delivered. The inspection report was VERY thorough, and they welcomed any questions. I ended up walking away from the house because of all the issues that were uncovered I otherwise would not have known about. The pictures and descriptions were great and easy to comprehend (My parents who live across the country were also impressed by the report after seeing it themselves). They were fantastic about scheduling, and when I needed to reschedule, it wasn't an issue. I recommend these guys to anyone, whether you're a first timer or experienced!

These guys know their stuff!! We are building new construction, and they found all sorts of red flags, and minor repairs that I never knew existed.... money well spent and helped prevent bigger problems down the road!

Ronnie and Nick arrived on time and ready to work. They completed the inspection in a professional manner. After completion they walked us through the house and explained their findings. Sean's website made it super easy to book the appointment and have a quote on the inspection cost. Office assistant assisted us with completion of a sheet required by the sales company. Will use again and highly recommend doing business with them!

Houston Inspections was a pleasure to do business with from start to finish. They were polite and friendly on the phone and came out exactly when scheduled. No waiting at all! Our inspector really knew what he was talking about and we felt very confident with him checking over our future home. They even followed up with me after things were finished. Inspection is such a major responsibility and I am very confident to recommend them to all my friends and family. If you are unsure your search should stop here. Call them, you will not regret it.
