Our Inspection Company!


Due to the high demand for our Professional Inspection Services, The Builders Academy, Inc. is proud to announce our other On Site Service Company.


The company is called INSPECTORTX and will feature Bryon A. Parffrey and his select team of  Graduate Inspectors.  Bryon has recently received his HERS Rating for Energy Auditing and has a wealth of experience as an Educator, Builder, and Inspector. If you need a Professional Inspection, Why not have it performed by the very best?  Simply clink the logo above and you can see our new website. While you are there, you can ask questions, make comments or book your Professional Inspection.


www.InspectorTx.com


I cannot emphasize enough how helpful Bryon was to us during this very stressful time as first-time home buyers. After our builders pushed back our closing date for the third time, they gave us only 4 days notice of the day for our third party inspection. Bryon was available and did not reschedule due to an ice storm that same day. His inspection was extremely thorough and contained many helpful comments for us to think about. Because our walk-through was the very next day, he got the full report (including 120 pictures) to us with plenty of time to spare. I now know what to discuss with our builders and they are all things I wouldn't have noticed on my own. Definitely money well spent!!! - K.


I would highly recommend Bryon Parffrey's  service to anyone looking for a professional, thorough, and immediate inspection. Bryon Parffrey has done two home inspections for me and both times he has excelled. He goes the extra mile, advising and helping you understand the findings of the inspection. His reports are thorough, easy to read, and visual. Best of all he is charismatic, and caring while on the job, which reflects in the final product.
