LarryInspects Home Inspection Service – Your Home Inspector in San Antonio
How Covid-19 Affects Our Inspection Process.
The current worldwide coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and associated government-mandated “shelter-in-place” and similar orders in many communities underscore the risks associated for individuals viewing or inspecting a property occupied by sellers or tenants, and the risks for sellers and tenants of allowing prospective home inspectors to enter the property they occupy.
Because of this, we are changing our inspection policies for your safety and ours. You are still welcome to attend the inspection, but only two persons may be present on the property with the inspector. There will be no physical contact and a safe distance must be maintained. Masks must be worn. We will have hand sanitizer and disinfecting wipes present at the inspection. No exchange of paperwork or money (credit cards) will be allowed at the inspection. The service agreement must be filled out prior to the inspection and returned to firstname.lastname@example.org. The Covid-19 Certificate for Home Inspection must be signed by the occupant and those who will be attending the inspection. This document must be returned to the inspector 24 hours prior to the inspection. The payment will be with credit or debit card through PayPal or Square. The report cannot be released until the payment has been made. Thank you for understanding these changes during this most difficult time.
Larry Wedige, Your Home Inspector in San Antonio, will perform a comprehensive, visual examination of the physical structure and systems. Let Larry (TREC #6060), with over 18 years of home inspection experience, take you on a tour that covers hundreds of items: everything from the roof to the foundation, including the electrical, plumbing and heating systems, insulation, ventilation, attic, roof, etc. Bring a pen and paper to take notes of the information he will share that does not belong in the inspection report. Also, will answer any questions you have during the inspection process.
The Inspection Process
During the home inspection process, Larry uses moisture meters, electrical meters, gas-leak detector, infrared camera, and other state-of-the-art equipment. His inspections exceed the minimum standards required by the Texas Real Estate Commission. That is why your inspection is liable to take 4 hours or more as compared to the 1.5 hours that some inspectors spend on an inspection. Above all, the inspection is done with your health and safety in mind. Therefore, he checks for gas leaks, carbon monoxide, moisture intrusion, signs of mold, faulty electrical, and improper framing where needed. Your Home Inspector in San Antonio keeps an eye out for energy efficiency. As such, insulation and ventilation are key elements. He uses a precision pressurized hydrostatic altimeter or a laser level to measure the elevations of the foundation. Check out his reviews here.

Why Get A Home Inspection?
Know What You Are Buying
Certainly, a home is usually the largest purchase you will ever make. It is in your best interest to make sure you know the true condition of the home before you purchase it. When you buy a new car, you always get to take a test drive in it. However, that is not the case with a home purchase. All you get to do is look at it and ‘kick the tires’. When buying a used car, the smart buyer takes it to be checked out by a qualified mechanic. Therefore, consider Your Home Inspector Larry Wedige as your qualified mechanic for checking out your future home’s condition.
Your Home Inspector in San Antonio checks out the condition of the accessible structural components, exterior, roofing, plumbing, electrical, heating, insulation and ventilation, air conditioning, and interiors. During the inspection, he gives you an impartial opinion of the overall condition of the home, and items that are needing to be repaired or replaced. If Larry suspects a problem, he reports it to you and recommends further evaluation by a licensed technician or engineer if needed.
Upon completion of the inspection, you receive a binder containing valuable information and documents to help you maintain and improve your new purchase. The link to the completed inspection report is emailed to you either late the same day or early the following morning. Print the report and place it in the binder. Inspection reports average 35 to 40 pages.
