We are the only home inspection company that offers 3 choices of home inspections. 

 

We start with our great home inspection the "Plus" Computerized report, Digital Color Photos, Report Summary and moisture checks. 

 

Then there is our most popular upgrade, the "Premium" inspection that adds a Thermal IR Camera Review for advanced moisture and electrical issue detection, Rodent Check, Lifetime Maintenance Advisory and more. 

 

The "Prestige" inspection has all features and adds the "Healthy Home" package. This specialty home inspection is for those that have family members or children that may have breathing disorders like Asthma, and helps see if there are going to be any common triggers that need to be addressed before moving in your new potential home.

 

We can arrange to have a fully qualified independent 3rd party Pest Control company perform a WDI or Wood Destroying Insect report at the same time of the home inspection.We can also help you arrange Septic System Reviews by 3rd party. 

 

Electronic Home Inspection Binder - The must have tool after the home inspection!

Whether you are a Buyer, Seller, First Year Warranty or Investor client, you will appreciate the new Electronic Inspection Binder that comes with every home inspection. This web based, personal and private, powerful tool, allows you to store vital documents and information on the home, set up maintenance emails, develop and maintain a list of your Contractors, Real Estate Professionals, Expenses, keep a History of all you have done on the home and best of all, it is transferable in the future. You can use it to generate a report on your home when you get ready to sell, to impress potential buyers.

 

We are one of a few Home Inspection Companies in the Austin Texas area that is a standing Member in the BBB.

 

In April of 2002 Steve Nunley TREC 6056 retired from one of the highly noted technology based companies, started SAMS Professional Inspections Inc (dba Pillar To Post) in Austin.  

 

After personally having a bad experience with a home inspection, Steve turned an eye to applying his knowledge from previous construction related businesses with emphasis on relevant information and a personal touch. 

 

Our goal is to give you information you can actually use, not a lot of technical jargon or worse, "just check the inspected box". 

 

New to the Austin TX area?

Welcome to Austin TX, we have been very blessed with stable economy and a diverse business environment. Though this is the capital of Texas, Austin is more of a "State of Mind" than it is "in the State of Texas". I and my family relocated to Austin back in 1993 and have never regretted it. Austin is a great place to live, work and wonderful place to raise children and is a very "charitable" community as well. If you are new to the Austin TX area, "Welcome". 

What services do you offer?

In Texas there are additional/optional systems that the inspector can agree to do and they are additional charges, examples are:

Sprinkler Systems. Hot Tubs. Swimming Pools. Out structures, guest quarters, workshops, or other buildings not attached to the home. Pest Inspections**

** We can schedule a 3rd party, licensed pest control company to do a WDI (Wood Destroying Insect) report while we have the home open.

We also offer other services like BuldFAX Property History reports, like a that car report but for a home. These reports help you get a snap shot of the property's history by reviewing available building permit data and the contractors used, just $10.00 with a home inspection.

How can I pay for my inspection ?

At the Austin Pillar To Post office, we can accept Visa, MasterCard, Discover or local personal checks and of course Money Orders.

Skills

What is a Home Inspection?

A pre-purchase home inspection, performed by a Pillar To Post professional, is a visual examination of the readily accessible areas of a home to provide an accurate as possible evaluation of the home's condition at the time of the inspection.

Home inspections are designed to disclose defects in the property that could materially affect its safety, function of major systems and structure or sometimes maintenance items needed to help prevent a minor problem from developing into a major problem, example: Caulk and seal around windows to reduce possible moisture intrusions.

They are not meant to disclose cosmetic defects.

They are Visual by nature, the inspector is not allowed to disassemble, otherwise take apart systems or in general be intrusive to the home or systems. TREC inspectors cannot move or otherwise disturb personal belongings of sellers in homes that are occupied which may cause limitations. Functional tests are run on major systems and built-in appliances.

 Areas visually reviewed when accessible are:

 

1. Structure - Foundation, Grading, Roof*, Attic, Walls Int/Ext,

Windows, Ceilings, Floors, Doors, Fireplace/Chimney, attached

porches/decks.

2. Electrical System - Service and Entrance panels, Branch Wiring

3. Plumbing - Drains, Supply lines, Water Heater

4. Heating and Cooling Systems

5. Built-in Appliances

6. Optional extra charge systems, sprinklers, pools, additional structures

etc are done if the customer elects.

 

* Tile or metal roofs, or roofs deemed too steep or high to be safe will not be physically 

walked and observed by binoculars.
