What’s in it for You:

Unparalleled Service – Unequaled Value – Unbeatable Guarantee

  • We provide experienced, expert home inspections and old school customer service in the greater Texas Hill Country including the Austin and San Antonio real estate markets.  We act as if we are buying the home and spending our own money.  In other words; we treat you like one of the family.
  • Our pricing structure provides value that our competitors simply can’t match when you consider the experience & thoroughness of the inspection with the quality of the verbal and written reports.  We're honest & don't sell you on what you won't need or tell you it's free when it isn't. 
  • Our Promise:  We feel so strongly about the quality of your experience, that if you’re not 100% satisfied when you receive your verbal report, you don't owe us anything. 

Why Do Clients & Real Estate Professionals Choose Paramount? 

Value.  Pricing that is fair - based on square foot & age of the home.  No extra charges for items like sprinkler systems, mileage, special equipment or crawlspaces etc. Additional outbuildings and/or detached garages to be inspected are understandably, a small extra fee. You are investing hundreds of thousands of dollars in your home & I trust you are too smart to choose a professional based on price. As with any experienced, specialized, & highly recommended professional, I have earned a great reputation.  I’m not the least expensive; however I am also not the most expensive either; that’s just not ethical in my book. Pricing starts at $225 (<500 sq ft), with the average inspection cost at $295 (approx. 2,000 sq ft & newer build).  So call, text or email for a free quote! Our contact info & link to schedule online, is at the bottom of this page.  My wife, Lisa, is our office manager & she will be more than happy to help you get your inspection scheduled!

Experience & Expertise matters!  Closing in on 1,000 inspections performed.  Nearly 20 years combined experience as a TREC licensed Professional Home Inspector (the highest level offered by the Texas Real Estate Commission), a residential construction framing foreman, a commercial property & building maintenance supervisor & commercial property insurance inspector.

Comprehensive & Detailed.  I utilize my 1,000 point checklist, in addition to the inspection form required by TREC .  Detailed report, emailed within 24 hours or less (usually same day) of completed inspection including digital pics & any instrumentation readings used for inspection

Professional.  I utilize the latest, most reliable & accurate technology: Infrared thermometer, electronic gas leak detector, moisture meter, voltage sniffer, water pressure gauge, etc. Don’t be led astray by gimmicks or hype.  See my blog citing verification from expert  & scientific sources about thermal imaging & foundation measurements along with info on 'free warranties' and why you probably won't need any them.

Inspections are scheduled Monday-Saturday at 10 am or 2 pm, but will try to work with your schedule. We are quality rather than quantity oriented.  We typically schedule only 2 inspections per day to dedicate time for your thorough inspection, questions & custom report writing. 

We make it simple for you.  We coordinate appointments with experts in their field for: Laboratory tested  well water, private well water & septic system performance, & WDO (wood destroying organisms e.g. termite) inspections.

Integrity.  I am insured, & have SUPRA Key access for 25 counties of the Austin & San Antonio markets & their surrounding areas. I am an approved member of CSS & 4 Rivers Association of Realtors, TAREI, CTXMLS, Texas Association of Realtors & the National Association of Realtors.
