Mission Statement:
The intent of our home inspection is to provide our clients with beneficial insight and understanding so that they can make knowledgeable decisions.

"I am always willing to help. A being is only valuable as he can serve others". ...Hubbard

Diligence is about helping people understand and preserve their home and their investment in it as well as how to protect themselves, their loved ones and guests from hazards that may exist therein. I built this information-service business out of thin air, a passionate vision, and years of paying-my-dues effort.

You deserve to know about a potential new home in detail before the closing. A Diligent inspection provides Insight to the property. Call 281-480-3388 for an appointment.

Diligent Inspections is dedicated to our clients. The quality professional work features personal consultation and rapid delivery of the narrative report at a very reasonable cost. I promise courtesy and respect for the seller and buyer , who benefits from our qualitative reporting system that delivers thorough, objective, and accurate information in a timely fashion.  For the mutual benefit of home buyers,  I am dedicated to providing state-of-the-art home inspection services that will educate the customer and promote a long term business relationship. Diligent has always insisted on providing quality home inspections to the highest recognized standards set forth by the industry.  My standard of excellence guarantees a quality inspection by a trained and qualified inspector.

I support the National Institute of Building Inspector's Code of Ethics as listed below. National Institute of Building Inspectors Logo

1. Institute members will always conduct their inspections in a professional manner with full respect for the property being inspected. They will never perform any destructive testing.

2. Institute members will never misinform their clients with regard to the scope of an inspection. They will always strive to inform clients that an inspection is not an exhaustive engineering or design study, but an evaluation of the overall condition of the property's major mechanical and structural elements.

3. Institute members will never pass judgment on the value of a property nor recommend the purchase of a property. Members should only provide objective opinion on the physical condition of the property.

4. Institute members will adhere to the Institute's continuing educational requirements.

5. Institute members will maintain professional liability insurance coverage in an amount established by the institute to provide increased protection for their clients.

6. Institute members will only perform inspections on properties in which they have no interest, present or contemplated.

7. Institute members will not act or perform in a manner which might bring discredit to the Institutes or its members.
