DFW Premier Home Inspections – Offers an honest, reliable, and dedicated service to our clients. Buying a home can be one of the most stressful times in your life; by having an experienced inspector provide a high-quality visual inspection of your property helps you feel confident about making the decision in buying your home. We report visual defects and try to isolate areas of the home that are deficient and safety issues. This is important as the defects we identify can cost you money to repair, as well as alert you of any potential structural and functional problems.
