Houston Home Inspection Services
Welcome to Houston, Texas!  

History of Houston, Texas
Houston is the fourth-largest city in the United States and the largest city in the state of Texas. As of the 2009 U.S. Census estimate, the city had a
population of 2.2 million within an area of 600 square miles.  Houston is the seat of Harris County and the economic center of the Houston–Sugar Land–
Baytown metropolitan area—the sixth-largest metropolitan area in the U.S. with a population of 5.9 million.

Houston was founded on August 30, 1836, by brothers Augustus Chapman Allen and John Kirby Allen on land near the banks of Buffalo Bayou.  The city
was incorporated on June 5, 1837, and named after then-President of the Republic of Texas—former General Sam Houston. The burgeoning port and
railroad industry, combined with oil discovery in 1901, has induced continual surges in the city's population. In the mid-twentieth century, Houston became
the home of the Texas Medical Center—the world's largest concentration of health care and research institutions—and NASA's Johnson Space Center,
where the Mission Control Center is located.

Houston's economy has a broad industrial base in the energy, manufacturing, aeronautics, transportation, and health care sectors and is a leading center
for building oilfield equipment; only New York City is home to more Fortune 500 headquarters in the city limits.  The Port of Houston ranks first in the United
States in international waterborne tonnage handled and second in total cargo tonnage handled.  The city has a population from various ethnic and religious
backgrounds and a large and growing international community. It is home to many cultural institutions and exhibits—attracting more than 7 million visitors a
year to the Houston Museum District. Houston has an active visual and performing arts scene in the Theater District and is one of few U.S. cities that offer
year-round resident companies in all major performing arts.

WHEN SHOULD YOU GET A HOME INSPECTED?  Read this comment from a prominent Realtor:

Each and every time you are purchasing a home or condo, have it inspected by a professional home inspector.  Even if you are purchasing new
construction, even if it is coming with a warranty, have it inspected.  Knowing what problems you may face upfront and having the seller contributed to fixing
them will save you a load of grief, frustration and money later on.

You may wonder why a new house may need inspecting.  More than 20 years ago I purchased a brand new home in a brand new subdivision.  That was a
great house and we had no problems.  Our neighbors on the other hand also purchased their home at the same time and it was also new construction.  
Three to four years later, their home developed the most horrible stink throughout.  They lived with it and burned scented candles and sprayed various
sprays to try and mask the smell but it was so bad that I simply could not go inside without holding my nose.  Eventually their family members and friends
told them that something was dreadfully wrong.  After 4 years, crucial pipe connecting the kitchen garbage disposal to the sewer line was missing.  It had
never been installed.  For 4 years, all their kitchen scraps were landing in their crawl space and rotting.  Get my point?  Get an inspection and make your
purchase and sale agreement contingent upon it.
