To ensure you have a thorough and comprehensive home inspection and evaluation, it is important to use an inspector who is an engineer, besides only being a licensed inspector, with the experience and knowledge necessary to make sure your property and your family are protected.
Choosing the right home inspector is important when purchasing a new or existing home, building a home or renovating. INSPECTORS ARE NOT CREATED EQUAL. All our inspectors are engineers with many years of experience. INSPECTIONS ARE NOT JUST A BUSINESS – IT’S A PASSION FOR US.
Not all home inspectors are engineers and not all engineers are home inspectors, so why not use a home inspector who is also an Experienced Engineer? An Engineer goes through at least 4 years of education and rigorous training and is well versed in how the building systems operate and building components work. Is it good enough only to know if the dishwasher is leaking or the heating system is working properly? WOULDN’T YOU WANT TO KNOW IF THE BUILDING WOULD HOLD UP AFTER THE STORM?
A home inspector who is not an experienced engineer will not be able to catch the problems as the Engineer would. If there are any problems, a plain vanilla inspector will end up recommending you to consult an engineer for further evaluation. You will end up paying for a second opinion and inspection. However, if you use a home inspector who is also an experienced engineer, you will already have an inspector who can assess what is wrong, why and how to fix it. Not all structural problems are apparent in a general home inspection. An engineer can assess the entire property from ground up. A home inspector who is also an Experienced Engineer has the education, background and knowledge to provide you with the most comprehensive home inspection possible.
With high winds and storms frequenting the Houston metropolis having an experienced engineer inspect your property will provide you with additional peace of mind. Foresight Engineering will assess the entire structure from top to bottom inside out leaving no stone unturned.
Our Experienced Engineers will encourage you to walk with them, show you the problems, let you know how serious or expensive they are, the safety issues/problems, and things to do to minimize/prevent the problems in future. We are there to help you, inform you and educate you. Normally, we have two engineers on an inspection who may spend 2 to 6 hours or more; depending on size, age, features and problems in the property; evaluating the property.
MOST ENGINEERS OR INSPECTORS DO NOT ALLOW THEIR CLIENTS TO BE WITH/AROUND THEM. WHY? What are they trying to hide? YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO KNOW WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOUR PROPERTY. THE BEST WAY IS TO WALK WITH THE INSPECTOR – YOU ARE PAYING FOR IT.
Simply put, we inspect the property as if we are buying it for ourselves.
AS STATED EARLIER, YOU DESERVE OUR BEST, YOU WILL GET OUR BEST. WE GUARANTEE IT.
