How Was Your Inspection?
If your inspection doesn't or didn't clearly pay for itself maybe you had the wrong inspector.
If your inspector knows nothing about coastal construction (Galveston, Brazoria, Chambers, part of Harris, etc.) requirements then what is he or she looking for?

"On my last house the inspector told the agent that everything will be fine. The house will pass. The problem was he told her that before the inspection even started. I wasn't going to use that kind of inspector this time".
M.L. - League City
""The builder said he wouldn't have sold me the house knowing it was going to be inspected. I want to know what they are hiding".
H.N. - League City
"After your recent inspection of a one year old "as-is" foreclosed builder home we requested structural repairs. The bank saw the photos and the references to building codes and opted to repair than give thousands of dollars in price cuts; the leverage of your report gave us the stronger position."
