We Notice The Little Things

We offer the most comprehensive home inspection service available.

We start at the roof and evaluate not only the roof surface, but also the chimney, the ventilation system, the electrical service entrance, the plumbing stack, and any other systems or components located on the roof.

Our next step is to inspect the exterior of the home. We use a macro and micro approach to look at both the big picture and all the details.

We then move inside the house, and starting at the bottom, work our way up through the home into the attic. While inside, we address such things as the structure, the heating and cooling systems, the electrical and plumbing systems, the interior finishes, the insulation and ventilation, and accessories such as fireplaces.

Our evaluation is then communicated through a detailed inspection report, which includes descriptions of all the systems in the home, as well as any recommended improvements. This will help you prioritize the improvements and develop a blueprint for your future in the home.

Best of all, our services don’t end with the inspection. For as long as you own the home, you can call with any additional questions - at no extra charge!

Be Confident With Your Purchase

With Lyn Garrett Home Inspections you are choosing certified professionals who provide high-quality home inspection services to the Brazos Valley  area. We take great pride in doing a thorough job and going beyond our clients’ expectations.

Our home inspection experience is inclusive. We encourage you to join us during the inspection, and to ask questions as you go. Having you with us on the inspection also gives us an opportunity to provide you with tips on home care and maintenance. For instance, you can learn how to change the furnace filter, turn off the water, gas, and electricity in an emergency.

A home inspection is valuable, but unless the experience is well-documented, most people won’t remember all the important details. That is why we provide a comprehensive written report to serve as your guide for as long as you own the home. It not only describes the house components and their condition, but also provides insight into what improvements will be necessary, and when.

Our report can also help you set up a home maintenance program to take care of one of the most significant investments most people make. Our goal is to ensure that you can live safely, comfortably, and efficiently in your new home.

New Build Phase inspections are broken down into 3 stages

  • Foundation (Pre-Pour)
  • Frame (prior to insulation)
  • Final (pre-close)

Conducting inspections during these three phases is crucial for assuring the home is being built in accordance with proper codes/requirements. The best way to catch defects is before they are covered up with concrete, insulation, drywall, and other building material.
