Preventative maintenance is always the best approach to reducing repair costs and keeping your home in good condition. It reduces unexpected repairs and improves the chance of selling your home quicker with fewer items to repair when the home is inspected. Below is a simple guide to home maintenance. This same guide will also be found attached to every inspection report issued by Residential Inspection Specialists.
Your inspector is also employed as a project manager by Residential Improvement Services, LLC, a construction company specializing in residential contracting and repairs. Pursuant to section 535.220(e) (6) of the Texas Administration Code, “[The] inspector shall not accept employment to repair, replace, maintain or upgrade systems or components of [a] property covered by the Standards of Practice under this sub-chapter on which the inspector has performed an inspection under a real estate contract, lease, or exchange of real property within 12 months of the date of the inspection.” This is to ensure that the inspection performed on the date listed above is not confused as a “hard sale” of any products or services but is instead an education on the condition of the property at a period in time.
