Under the Roof Home Inspection provides buyers inspections, pre-listing inspections, one year warranty inspections and roof inspections across 27 counties in Texas. Our service area covers Hunt County, and most of North, Northeast and East Texas. We are based out of Quinlan, Texas with a service radius of 100 miles. Our narrative reports include photos and are easy to understand. We provide a verbal report onsite and then email you the complete report within 24 hours. We are insured and licensed to perform home inspections in Texas.  We are regulated by the Texas Real Estate Commission and are required to adhere to the TREC Standards of Practice. We will provide a professional unbiased opinion on the current condition of the home and assist you in making an informed decision. We inspect each home as if we are the potential buyers. 

A typical home inspection will last 2-3 hours or more, depending on the age and size of the home. At the conclusion of every inspection, we encourage our clients to meet with us. This allows us to go over our findings and answer any questions the client may have.

A Home inspection is not a Technically exhaustive inspection of the homes structure, systems or components.  A home inspection may not reveal all deficiencies.  A home inspection helps to reduce some of the risk involved in purchasing a home, but it cannot eliminate these risks, nor can the inspection anticipate future events or changes in performance due to changes in use or occupancy.

It is recommended that you obtain as much information as is available about the home, including any seller’s disclosures, previous inspection reports, engineering reports, building/remodeling permits, and reports performed for or by relocation companies, municipal inspection departments, lenders, insurers, and appraisers.

​​What is a Home Inspection?

A professional home inspection is a visual inspection of the structure and components of a home. A home inspection is limited to those items which are visible and accessible to the inspector at the time of inspection. The inspector will look for items that are not functioning as intended, items that are unsafe or are not within the guidelines of the “Standards of Practice” established by the Texas Real Estate Commission. If a problem or symptom is found with the property, the inspector will include a description of the problem in a narrative report and may recommend further evaluation by a specialist in a specific trade.
