Houston, TX, is full of inspection companies, all claiming to be the best. When you need a commercial property inspection for your apartment complex or new construction, just how do you decide whether an inspector is worth your time and resources? We’d love to tell you to just hire our inspection team at Titans Commercial, but we know you need to do your due diligence. Therefore, we’ve put together this list of tips for helping business owners like you hire a professional inspector in Houston.
1. Consult your colleagues.
Do you have friends or colleagues in your industry who have used a particular building inspector in the past? Get firsthand knowledge about their experiences with various companies. Based on their input, you can put together a list of options. (We hope you’ll keep us on your short list, too!)
2. Check their credentials.
When it comes to your particular industry, no two property inspectors are alike. Credentials and experience carry weight in the commercial building inspection field, so make sure that the inspector has them.
3. Read the reviews.
You can get a more well-rounded perspective on a building inspector’s professionalism, work ethic, and ability to communicate based on online customer reviews. You may be able to find them at the company’s website or through a service review site.
4. Ask your questions.
When you’ve narrowed down your list to one or two potential inspectors, give them a call, and ask for a written quote. Ask any and all inspection-related questions you might have about their services, the inspection report, their process, and more. Make sure their answers are satisfactory, and be sure to pay attention to their level of professionalism and customer service while on the phone.
While these four tips certainly aren’t the only ones out there, they can help you weed out the sub-par inspectors and find an inspector worth your consideration. To find out more about our inspection services at Titans Commercial, contact us anytime at 713-741-3180.
