Importance of Home Inspections

As we know, Houston’s weather can be ruthless and unpredictable. Between the high heat of the summer, and the rough winds and rain of hurricane season your home gets put through the ringer every year. That is why here at ABET Home Services, we recommend periodic home and roof inspections. Keeping your home and roof maintained helps to minimize cost and avoid large repairs. To help keep an eye on your home’s maintenance needs, here is a helpful guide of what we look for in your home inspections season by season.



  • Check floors, walls, and concrete for cracks or structural damages
  • Check chimneys for any loose bricks or missing mortar
  • Check for signs of water damage or leaks in attic space and on the roof after summer showers 
  • Make sure to trim trees and plants away from the roof
  • Keep an eye on weather stripping for signs of deterioration



  • Check floors, walls, and concrete for cracks or structural damages or deterioration
  • Check for weathering on all wood surfaces
  • Check attic vent screen for blockage
  • Check for leaks or water damage on the roof and attic
  • Keep an eye out for any loose or missing shingles
  • Have your water well tested for safety
  • Check all grout between tiles for deterioration

ABET is such a great company for all your home service needs. I am enrolled in their extermination / preventative maintenance program & have not had a bug problem since day 1. Their kind, accommodating customer service is unbeatable as well! I highly recommend using ABET for all your home needs!

ABET inspections was able to work around my schedule, which was awesome! I work out of town a lot and was only available on the weekends. They scheduled me on a time that they normally don’t conduct business, and I was able to get a thorough and professional inspection. Austin Messina was in, on, and around every nook and cranny of my soon to be home. He was able to point out miner details that I would have not been able to catch. Yes, I would certainly recommend ABET to friends and family. A special thanks to Katie for making my appointment happen in a resiculously timely manner.
