Thermal Imaging

Thermal Scanning Home Inspection

Thermal Imaging offers a way to visualize certain defects within a home that are invisible to the naked eye. Dragonfly Home Inspections uses state-of-the-art tools and cameras to assist in detecting and identify potential problems such as moisture penetration, insulation deficiencies, air leaks and overheating electrical components.  Thermal Imaging is included in our standard home inspection.


Pools and Spas

Pool Inspection add-on to Home Inspection

 Complete inspection of swimming pool and spa equipment.   I use state-of-the-art technology and advanced moisture detection equipment to thoroughly evaluate all the structure and components of your swimming pool. Because sometimes hidden factors can lead to substantial and costly repairs.   The pool and spa inspection will be added to a standard home inspection if present.

Pre-Listing Inspection

Pre-Listing Inspection

Before you sell your home, a Pre-Listing Inspection is a smart move. This inspection allows you to discover and address flaws before placing your home on the market.  I offer a pre-Listing Inspection at a discount  to the normal inspection. It may help you avoid delays and surprises when you are trying to sell your home.

The 1-Year Warranty Inspection

Builder Warranty Inspection, 11 month warranty inspection.

I highly recommend a 1-Year Warranty Inspection during the 11th month after a new home’s construction. This is a comprehensive home inspection intended to help you identify issues that need to be addressed by the builder prior to the expiration of your 1-year builder’s warranty. 

Single Component or follow-up Inspections

Roof, Drainage Inspection, Home Inspection

 If you need a professional inspection on any single system or component , or maybe a follow up to a prior inspection after repairs have been made,  I can help you! If you think you have a water leak, or wonder if the repair man insulated good enough? Please contact me for custom pricing.

Hello, my name is Chris Ruten and I am a Professional Home Inspector,  Texas License #23612. I enjoy doing inspections and helping people understand the state of a property.

Thorough and Clear

Furnace HVAC Inspection

There are a thousand items to observe  and report on during a home inspection. I will be on the roof, under the house, in the attic, in electrical panels, and in every room.  I take my time and go through everything that is required by the state of Texas and more, documenting thoroughly as I ago.  My typical inspection takes a few hours and includes a walk-through at the end with you through the property and over the report.
