Are you buying a new home?
You love the house. Still, you have questions. . . . Roland Huettel, owner of eco.inspections®, will provide answers to all your questions and to questions you did not even think of asking — answers that will empower you to take the next steps toward purchasing your new home.
A home inspection is regulated by the Texas Real Estate Commission (TREC). Deficiencies (structural/electrical/mechanical/plumbing) are defined by the Standards of Practice and reported in the Standard Inspection Report Form. Roland uses these standards as a starting point and exceeds customer expectations with:
- Personal Service
Roland personally handles every aspect of each inspection. Many inspection companies are not able to provide this level of personal attention. Call Roland with any questions prior to scheduling and/or at any time after the inspection.
Roland has personally inspected over 3,500 homes since 1999. He holds many licenses that go beyond the TREC licensing requirements: Building/Electrical/Mechanical/Plumbing Code Inspector, Heating & Air-Conditioning Contractor, Building Energy Analyst and Commercial Pesticide Applicator.
- Prompt Service
Roland works with buyers to accommodate short option periods. Most inspections can be scheduled within 3 days. Reports are emailed within 24 hours of the inspection. Request now…
- Detailed Inspection Report
Roland documents his findings with detailed descriptions that are clarified by photos where needed. The report format is user-friendly and provides “fact” and “defect” summaries for easy reference.
- Indoor Comfort and Energy Efficiency Information (not required by TREC)
Roland evaluates air distribution designs of heating & air-conditioning systems by measuring HVAC supply air-flow. He measures and documents the amount of air supplied to each area of the home and highlights any deficiencies. He inspects the building envelope with thermal imaging and provides eco.TIPs to assist buyers in choosing the right efficiency improvements. Learn more…
- Specialized testing equipment (not required by TREC)
Roland brings a 3-story ladder, thermal imaging camera, air flow meter (balometer), air-pressure gauge (manometer), infrared thermometer as well as a moisture meter to every inspection. Even more advanced building performance testing can be added by request. Learn more…
