TYPES OF ADDITIONAL INSPECTIONS

POOL & SPA

INSPECTION

Why choose a home inspector who can’t perform a pool and spa inspection? When choosing your swimming pool inspector, it is important to choose one who is certified. Our knowledgeable team is both certified and trained to provide a thorough inspection of your pool or spa setting from top to bottom. From plaster to electrical and everything in between, we’re here to ensure your safety.

GreenWorks inspectors operate according to National Swimming Pool Foundation® (NSPF) and Certified Pool Operator® (CPO) standards. Our inspection includes an overview of the exterior and all visible areas of the pool. This includes the shell/coping and pool equipment (heater, pump, filter, and electrical components).

Even if your pool or spa appears safe and in good working order, GreenWorks inspectors are trained to detect potential issues that could end up costing you a fortune. Our goal is to ensure that a home buyer/seller knows the current condition of a swimming pool or spa and whether it needs extensive repairs, updates, or replacement parts.

 

The second visit occurs after framing is completed, the electrical wiring has been run, and the plumbing lines have been placed. This should occur before beginning drywall and exterior finishes. The inspector then looks for proper attachments to the foundation, electrical wiring and termination, plumbing setups, any disconnected plumbing, nailing plates where required, and proper window operation. They will also observe the ducts for damage or disconnection, ensure fasteners are in all holes at the joist hangers, verify that framing of the structure was completed to code, check that flashing is placed around windows and other penetrations, and that the exterior sheathing is sealed to create a water-resistive barrier. The roof will not be inspected during this phase as it may not be finished. However, the inspector will check for obvious points of water entry.

INFRARED

INSPECTION

 
 

SEPTIC

INSPECTION

The final inspection occurs a few days before your scheduled walk-through with your builder. Also known as the comprehensive new home inspection, this final inspection satisfies the Standard of Practice as outlined by the Texas Real Estate Commission (TREC). Your final inspection will focus on structural, operational, mechanical, plumbing, and safety issues. At this time, the inspector will operate all appliances and fixtures, check all outlets and lights, run the heating and air, ensure proper sealant in all necessary areas, make sure windows and doors are opening/closing properly, and complete all other aspects of a general home inspection. The inspector will walk the roof if it is safe to do so and run the sprinklers, if able.

GreenWorks Phase 3 inspections includes a complimentary infrared (thermal imaging) inspection.

Most builders provide you with a one year warranty after residing in your new construction home. It is crucial to have your house inspected by the 11th month of the warranty to provide you time to address any issues with your home builder. Houses are pretty good at keeping secrets and may go undetected until something goes wrong or is inspected. A GreenWorks home warranty inspection will provide you with a full comprehensive report so you can hand that over to the builder for repairs before your builder's warranty runs out.

Having the knowledge and 3rd party expertise on how to hold builders accountable is never a bad thing.

INSPECTION & TESTING

Foundation pre-pour inspections are performed within 24-48 hours before the concrete is poured for the foundation. The inspector will check the vapor barriers, the form boards, rebar, rebar elevators, and any penetrations for proper barriers. The inspector will also check for foreign objects anywhere the concrete will go that could leave a void after deterioration. Any foundation problems that are found will be quickly addressed. Finished grade around the foundation is also checked to verify adequate site drainage.

The best time for the foundation inspection is typically two days prior to the actual pour day. This will ensure that the foundation is ready to inspect, as well as give the builder sufficient time to make any and all needed corrections or postpone the pour day.
