Payment and Fees
Fees depend on location, age and square footage of the structure.
Payment is due at the time of the inspection or mailed and received prior to the inspection.
A quote will be given to you at the time you decide to schedule an appointment; the fee will be recorded on an appointment sheet and will be verbally agreed on.

Before releasing any report, a signed agreement form MUST be signed and returned with payment to Alamo Home Inspections. The agreement form can be downloaded from the site, signed and brought to the inspection with payment or mailed in prior to the inspection if you are not planning on being present for the inspection.
If other items outside of the standard inspection are desired to be inspected, please let me know at the time of scheduling. (view offered services under Services page)
BEST VALUE PACKAGE: home inspection, thermal camera scan, follow up, radon test, call for price!
Please make sure the house is ready for the inspection; electricity on, water on, gas on, pilot lights lit at appliances that require lit pilot lights, (pools/hot tubs full of water when applicable). You cannot expect the inspector to wait for appropriate preparations to be made; things should be functioning in a readily livable setting. If the house is not ready for inspection in any of these areas, there will be limitations in performing the inspection; the given item(s) may be eliminated completely from the report. The complete fee quoted will still be expected regardless.
PER NATIONAL HOME INSPECTION GUIDELINES, NO INSPECTOR IS RESPONSIBLE FOR PREPARATION OR DE-WINTERIZATION OF A HOUSE. CONSULT WITH YOUR REALTOR TO ADDRESS THIS ISSUE. THERE ARE COMPANIES THAT WINTERIZE AND DE-WINTERIZE PROPERTIES.
