a division of T.R. Arnold, LLC


Arnold Property Inspections understands that we occupy a service oriented industry and we make that service our priority.  We do this by first providing a inspection and report where we use our two decades of inspection experience and diligence to report accurately and consistently.  Not many inspectors have been doing this as long as API.  Secondly, we make ourselves available to our clients.  Whether it is at the inspection, after the inspection or two years later when they have a question, we are here.  We are a referral source, a consultant and an asset to homeowners and buyers that chose our services.  And lastly, we utilize the most current industry technologies available, we continue our professional training on an annual basis, we provide appointments Monday through Saturday and schedule your inspection at our earliest possible opening. 

We provide all of our findings in a Texas Real Estate Commission mandated format, well documented, with written narrative in a computer-generated report that utilizes color digital photography.  We always make ourselves available to you for any follow up questions that you might have about your inspection or report.  Some of the residential services we currently provide are:

  • Home Inspections for Buyers
  • Pre-Listing Inspections for Sellers
  • New Construction Phase Inspections
  • Multi-Family Residential Inspections
  • Final Walk Through Inspections
  • Pool & Spa Inspections
  • Builder Warranty Inspections
  • Foundation Inspections
  • Renovation Consultations
  • One Item Inspections


New Construction Phase Inspections
This service is a phased inspection process geared towards ensuring the adherence to local building codes, acceptable building practices and quality control.  This process is typically completed in four phases, a pre-pour slab inspection, after pour slab inspection, a FE&P inspection (which includes the framing, mechanical, electric and plumbing systems) and the final inspection.  Our findings and reports are issued in a timely manner to the client and general contractor to help ensure that delays do not occur.  Documentation is provided at each phase and as a package at the end of the completed project.  We do not perform new construction phase inspections without API's plan approval or without inspecting each of the phases mentioned above.

Third Party Inspections/Major Project Oversight
This type of service is typically for retail, office, commercial or lodging renovations and revitalizations of capital properties.  During Major Project Over Sight we work with the owner, general contractor, sub-contractors, and local fire marshals, as needed to help insure the completion of the project and adherence to applicable local fire, safety, ADA and building codes.  These services are fully scalable and can be tailored to suit our clients needs.  Documentation is provided as the project progresses and as a package upon project completion.

Municipal Contract Services
This contract service is provided to small municipalities that cannot fiscally accommodate a full time building inspection and plan review department.  This is a scalable service that can be tailored to the needs of the specific municipality.

FHA/HUD Compliance Inspections
This service is performed at the request of lenders and financial institutions to verify compliance with the minimum requirements for various FHA/HUD financing programs.
