Springtime home inspection

As spring arrives, it’s the perfect time to conduct a home inspection to verify your property is safe and secure. A springtime home inspection can help identify potential issues before they become major problems, such as damaged or clogged gutters, cracked foundations, and worn-out or damaged roof shingles. When summer rains come, these issues can quickly become major concerns. By identifying potential issues, a thorough inspection can also reveal opportunities for improvement, such as energy-efficient upgrades. By conducting a springtime home inspection, homeowners can rest assured that their property is safe, secure, and well-prepared for the warmer months ahead.

Home inspectors with less experience

Home inspectors with less experience may not notice these things. Last week I inspected a home in El Paso where there were multiple issues with a new home. Call us for an inspection on your new El Paso home!

A smoke detector was closer than three feet from a return or supply air register.


A wall (below) was not fully supported by the foundation.






Foundation bolts (below) should be in the middle of the wall holding it in place.

Horizon City Home Inspector Electrical Discovery

AFCI Breakers

Today in Horizon City our home inspector discovered an unsafe electrical panel find. During an earlier new home inspection in Horizon City, our inspector discovered missing AFCI (Arc-Fault Circuit Interrupter) protected receptacles in the dining room. A follow-up visit 2 1/2 weeks later all AFCI breakers were missing from the same new Horizon home. AFCI breakers are designed to help protect your home from fires. If arcs are present in a circuit, they should pop and remove the power to that circuit. These are the breakers with a “TEST” button. These breakers are in high demand and in some cases are being removed from the panels. Our home inspector at FYI Property Inspection did his job today! What will we find at your home inspection? Let us be your home inspector.
