Business Overview

How We Got Started

I love working in Northwest Houston / CyFair area because I live in the area, suppliers are close to where I'm working and driving shorter distances keeps "the costs of transportaion factor" to a minimum making my rates more competitive..

Review by in Spring, TX
Project: Inspect a Home
Did a great job for a reasonable price. I walked the entire house with the individual for 5 hours on a day and he was happy to answer all my questions and let me shadow him so I could learn the house I was trying to buy. Had some great finds that saved us a good amount of money. I have to say the ROI was very much positive. Was one of the few inspectors willing to actually walk the roof and not just use a drone to take pictures.

Project: Inspect a Home
Phil was professional, friendly, timely, thorough, and offered competitive rates. He was exactly what we were looking for! Our positive experience: We started looking for home inspectors in the Houston area to compare services and find price quotes for a home inspection on a 1970's home in NW Houston. We found positive online reviews of Core Home Inspectors and were directed to Phil's website. We found that the site is easy-to-use, direct, and full of important information. After getting a price quote and time availability, we quickly scheduled an appointment for the next day, and the following day, we met up with him at the house. We very much appreciated how Phil allowed us to accompany him during his inspection. On top of that, he let us ask questions during the inspection, and he would comment on his observations that would later be in his report. We chose Core Home Inspectors because their prices are competitive and because the website and online reviews are very positive. We recommend Core Home Inspectors because Phil is certified in many inspections and provides very high quality service from a comprehensive knowledge and years of experience. Plus, he is very nice and answers questions to the best of his ability.

Phil was very responsive throughout the whole process, and arrived promptly at the start time we scheduled. He was friendly throughout the inspection and was happy to answer any questions I had about the house and his findings. I feel the home inspection was thorough and covered everything necessary to help guide my buying decision. I also purchased a pest and pool inspection. I would have liked a little more of a comprehensive inspection/report with the pest and pool inspections.

Seal of Approval

What is the screening process that Service Professionals go through in order to become members of the HomeAdvisor network?

  1. Verify Trade License
    HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.
  2. Verify Insurance
    As a part of our screening process, we encourage professionals to carry general liability insurance. We require coverage for hundreds of services.
  3. Verification of State Business Filings
    For business types that require a Secretary of State filing, we confirm that the business is in good standing in the state in which it is located.
  4. Criminal Records Search
    HomeAdvisor uses 3rd party data sources to conduct a criminal search for any relevant criminal activity associated with the owner/principal of the business.
  5. Sex Offender Search
    We confirm that the owner/principal is not listed on the official state Sex Offender web site in the state in which the owner/principal of the company is located.
  6. Bankruptcy Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the history of the principal/owner of the business for bankruptcy filings by or against them.
  7. Legal Search for Civil Judgments
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for state level civil legal judgments entered against them.
  8. Liens Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for liens placed against them.
  9. Identity Verification (SSN)
    HomeAdvisor verifies the social security number(s) of the owner/principal for identity check purposes. This check applies primarily to smaller business entities.
  10. Identity Verification (Reverse Phone Lookup)
    We conduct a reverse business phone lookup to identify records matching the phone number information provided by the business.

NOTE: Member service professional information confirmed as described above may change or expire over time; while HomeAdvisor attempts to maintain accurate and up-to-date information, and confirms changes when notified, we cannot guarantee that profile and screening information is accurate. Therefore, we recommend that before working with a service professional you verify that information presented is still current and/or acceptable to you.
