Home/Real Estate
Buying a home is the largest financial decision you'll ever make. Hire an IQ home inspector and make the smart choice when protecting your investment. We are licensed by the Texas Real Estate Commission and certified by the International Association of Certified Home Inspectors.
Pool/Spa
At IQ Inspections, we understand how important it is for a thorough pool inspection. We inspect for defects with the concrete deck, plaster surface, coping & tile, drains, skimmers, valves, filter, pumps, water heating equipment & much more.
Sprinkler Systems
Irrigation systems are not cheap. That's why the professionals at IQ Inspections offer thorough inspections of your home's irrigation system. We inspect the sprinkler heads for damage/ poor coverage, leaks, and report on instances where the system is spraying onto the home/ air conditioning equipment. We also examine the vacuum breaker, sprinkler controller, and look for abnormal installations.
Commercial Property
IQ Inspections offers their flagship inspection services for commercial properties too! Having an inspection done before leasing a commercial property is a crucial step to protecting your business.
Residential & Commercial Energy Code Inspections
IQ Inspections offers full scope energy inspections and audits for new construction in both residential and commercial markets. We pair quality equipment and advanced energy inspection methodologies.
New Build Phase Inspections
Protecting your investment is a no-brainer. IQ Inspections proudly offers phase inspections services on new construction. We conduct three inspections: One at the pre-pour phase (before the foundation is poured). One at the rough-in phase (this is before the drywall and finished surfaces go up.) Lastly, we perform our final home inspection once the home is ready to be moved into.
Thermal Imaging Inspections with Consultation
IQ Inspections performs thermal imaging scans as an ancillary or separate service. We harness the power of the thermal imaging cameras and our visual inspection methodologies to find and diagnose thermal anomalies detected during our inspection.
Home Energy Audit
Home Energy Audits are the keys to an efficient home. We perform thorough audits to determine the present state of the home's energy efficiency and prescribe solutions to increasing the efficiency of the home.
Home Energy Efficiency Blower Door Test
With modern building practices and materials come new efficiency standards, a large part of this development has taken place in air-sealing the wall envelope. IQ Inspections offers blower door testing services on new and resale homes. Understanding where efficiency is being lost in your home is the first step to gaining it back.
HVAC Duct Leakage Test
HVAC installations are often rushed and the critical details are overlooked. Having a duct leakage test performed on your home is the best way to determine where sealing improvements/ repairs to the duct and plenums can be made. The added benefit to proper sealing of the ductwork in your home is that energy costs will go down as a result of gained efficiency.
Foundation ZipLevel Inspections
The condition of your slab foundation is paramount to the structural condition of your home. IQ Inspections uses a high precision digital altimeter to check level variations of your foundation called a ZIPLEVEL® by Technidea.
we inspect it all

Every house, Every Time.

Roof

We verify that the installation of the roof covering and underlayment follows common building practices or the general recommendations of most roof covering manufacturers; and confirm that the installation of the roof covering is such that water intrusion will be prevented.

Structural

Everything from studs, joists, beams, headers, decking, rafters and beyond, big or small- we inspect it all! We identify common mistakes in framing and decking installations as well as cladding systems of every kind. Rest easy knowing that the IQ team has put their eyes on it.

HVAC

We inspect the heating and air conditioning equipment for correct installation practices, efficiency, and performance. Everything from the air handler, safety pan, condensate drain lines to the refrigerant line connections, condensing units, duct and plenum connections. We've got you covered.

Foundation

When it comes to slab on grade inspections in the city of Houston, an experienced home inspector is a necessity. We look for cracks, soil separation from the edges of the slab, water stains or discoloration, or evidence of pest intrusion (mud or mounds of dirt on the slab edges), and for signs of foundation movement.

Electrical

Bonding, grounding, splices, service entrance conductors, main panel enclosures, receptacles, switches, fans and light kits. We inspect every light, switch, and receptacle in your home and make sure that your home's electrical system is safe, reliable, and installed correctly.

Plumbing

Water pressure, supply lines, gas lines, drainage, fixtures, valves, connections, shower pans, toilets, whirlpool tubs, dishwashers, sprinklers, and water heaters. We make sure that your home's plumbing system is free of leaks and incorrect installations in all plumbing rooms.

testimonials

what our clients say.

IQ Inspections and everyone involved with them are rare breeds. Stephen, the owner, helped us a great deal with two houses we needed checked out. One was new construction and the other was a few years old. Stephen was knowledgeable, patient and easy to talk to. He always communicated and was eager to help. He helped us make a very expensive decision with his thorough inspection process. I would recommend him and his company to anyone needing an inspection. Thanks Stephen!
