The right inspector can be hard to find. Most times, you do not get to meet your inspector until after you hire them. Every inspector has different levels of experience, reporting software, and pricing. Our experience and qualifications include:
Craig from Third Coast Home Inspection responded quickly to our interest in a condo home inspection in Austin, Tx. In addition, he was the only home inspector who we spoke to who included going on the roof of the building to check the AC unit located there and included a part of our responsibility once we purchased the condo. (I was super surprised that multiple inspection companies we spoke to and/or researched refused to include the roof unit as part of the inspection.) Craig arrived ahead of schedule and was 100% professional from minute one. Given it was during 2020, he wore a mask from the time he exited his truck until after we split ways. He explained the process to us as he walked through the different tests and even as he continued to test the air grates during the heating and cooling tests. He provided a list of people he worked with and trusted as well as really neat things around town to do [i.e. a seasonal – holiday artists bazaar going on which we might enjoy. (sidenote – We went. I loved it! I will be back next year to add Austin specific items to our new condo!)] Overall, the reassurance and quality of work Craig provided made us feel very comfortable with our upcoming purchase. He explained where to change the filters, the little quarks our condo comes with and has already been great about communication post-inspection when questions came up. We’d definitely recommend Third Home Inspection for those considering a condo purchase in the future.
Not only is he an absolute pleasure to work with, he does an excellent and thorough job. I’ve used him myself, and I recommend him to all of my real estate clients!
Craig Boarini of Third Coast Home Inspection did our inspection for the purchase of a new house. His report was thorough complete with pictures and easy to understand report. He checked everything from the foundation to the roof, I feel more confidant in my new home thanks to him. I would recommend his services to anyone who needs their home inspected.
