Working with The Art of House

At The Art of House, a Dallas-Fort Worth home inspection company, we value our clients’ time and the level of trust they put in our hands as we guide them through the home buying process. We encourage our clients to meet up with us towards the end of the home inspection. This allows the inspector to focus all of his attention on the property during his own walk-through so that he can better explain the data he has collected. After the walk-through, we are more than happy to answer any questions you have and go over our findings before leaving the property. This gives our clients a good understanding of the home’s condition while they wait for us to generate a full same-day report back at our office.
