About Us

Mission Statement

image12

I am licensed in the state of Texas and InterNACHI certified and maintain standards above the required levels for continuing education. After the inspection, I remain available for any questions or follow up that may be required.

My property inspection reports are clear and concise, with digital photos, graphics, descriptions, informative narratives and a report summary for quick reference and to aid in preparing a repair list for the sellers. Reports are always delivered  generally within a few hours of the inspection.  Reports are emailed (available for download ) to my client and realtor (if requested by client) in PDF format for easy delivery, printing and storage. 

To acquaint and familiarize yourself with my reporting format; I provide a sample report with every quote upon request.

And for your peace of mind, I offer the Porch 90 Day Inspection Guarantee which begins on the day of your inspection. I encourage you to be present at the inspection to allow me the opportunity to fully explain my findings and to familiarize you with the property. You are welcome to attend the entire inspection or just the final hour. I enjoy serving my clients and look forward to working with you.  Your complete satisfaction is my goal!  Sincerely, Christopher L Juarez

My Job

image13

Knowing the condition of the home before you buy or sell will help to eliminate unpleasant surprises, lower your risk, and give you peace of mind.  It is my goal to provide you with the knowledge and information you need to make an informed decision. 

Although we TREC inspectors perform the same quality inspections and follow the same protocol, I  go beyond the SOP promulgated by TREC, utilizing the following equipment : Pinless Moisture, Gas, Amprobe, Load Tester, Temperature, Humidity meters, Outlet testers as well as Flir Thermal Imager, Megalite Mold sampling equipment, Smoke pencils and a 30 foot wireless Pole Cam to inspect un-walkable areas of the roof.   

Your inspection report will include a detailed review of the systems listed below and any specialized services such as thermal imaging, pool/spa  etc :

  • Grading / Rock Walls
  • Foundation  / Walls / Ceilings
  • Windows / Doors
  • Garage
  • Detached Garage / Shop / In-law Quarters
  • Built-In Appliances
  • Fireplaces
  • Attics
  • Roofing / Flashing

Specialized Services

(IR) Thermal Imaging / Energy Assessment

image26

I.R. IMAGING -

Recommended for locating a problem before it becomes a major expense and to assist in preventive maintenance . Floors, walls, ceilings, electrical panels and plumbing is scanned utilizing advanced Flir I.R. imager. There is no charge if active water leaks or suspect electrical overloads are detected during a conventional home inspection. Deficiencies will be scanned and reported. 

ENERGY ASSESSMENT -

Homeowners have taken advantage of my energy assessment services in El Paso. Steer clear of companies that offer this service without certifications. I am certified in every aspect of energy assessments. Areas of energy loss such as air intrusion from the exterior, lighting, HVAC efficiency, insulation performance are evaluated and reported. I provide my clients with the most accurate energy assessments and include a customized energy report with cost savings recommendations.

Many local, state, and federal entities offer grants and tax credits for energy-efficient home improvements. 

Check with your local utility or city, or check the DOE-sponsored Database of State Incentives for Renewables and Efficiency (DSIRE) at www.dsireusa.org

Pool and Spa Inspection

image27

Whether you want to sell your residential or commercial property, purchase one, or simply ensure the safety of your loved ones and/or visitors in and around the pool, a pool and spa inspection is a necessary step. 

Mechanical and electrical equipment, pump operation, filter operation, decking, pool surface and connected components are inspected. Deficiencies and recommendations are included with report.

For pool safety tips go to :

www.poolsafety.gov/parents


What is inspected -

  • Pool fences, gates and access
  • Pool deck conditions, drainage and trip hazards
  • Coping, skimmers and lids
  • Pool or spa body, drains, plaster, finish and tile
  • Pumps, filters and heaters
  • Lights, timer boxes, grounding
  • Slides, diving boards and pool ladders.



Mold Inspection (NM)/ Moisture Intrusion (IAC2 Certified)

image28

Moisture intrusion into the interior and plumbing leaks create the ideal environment for mold or mildew. Utilizing Thermal Imaging and Moisture meters, I pin point the source of active water leaks. If you ignore any moisture issues in your home, the mold problem will grow. The more mold there is, the more costly the removal or remediation, so address your mold problem as soon as you suspect you have one.

Mold has a musty odor that is indistinguishable from any other smell. Respiratory and other health ailments have been linked to inhaling mold spores. 

For more information go to : www.epa.gov/mold

I sample air outdoors and indoors (at the location of the suspect mold) Two representative mold samples are swabbed or taped and submitted, along with the air samples, to Pro-Lab for analysis. You will receive a detailed report of the findings within three business days.

Mold inspections are performed in New Mexico only.

I am very happy with the thoroughness of our home inspection. Mr. Chris Juarez was clearly knowledgeable and paid attention to every detail. It was such a piece of mind to get a very extensive full report explaining the issues. It made me feel safer in the house because I know everything was checked the right way. He also used a thermal imaging tool and detected many insulation voids within the walls. I am a senior citizen and he also offered me a discount. If I purchase another home I will certainly contact him.

Chris Juarez is an excellent home inspector.  He was very professional and committed to doing an outstanding job. I received my inspection report the same day as the inspection.  He explained many things to me that I did not understand.  I'm so glad that I chose him to inspect my home.  You won't regret hiring him.

I had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Juarez, a very professional home inspector with Homequest Home Inspections. I highly recommend his service. He has updated equipment that made the inspection efficient and was very thorough and knowledgeable. He used thermal imaging which in my opinion is a very useful and amazing tool that can detect things that the eye can't. Mr. Juarez was very courteous and had great customer service. The fact that he answered all my questions and acknowledged my concerns definitely proves his professionalism. The inspection report was provided on the same day. Very pleased with his work and an inspection well done 👍🏼👍🏼!

Chris Juarez was very professional and on time for the inspection.  I required a home inspection for the purpose of  purchasing the house being inspected.  Mr. Juarez was able to accomdate a request for a weekend appointment, which helped me to get on with the process of purchasing the house in a more expedient manner.  Mr. Juarez provided a very through inspection.  He used a thermal imagining device to produce a report which allowed me to see that the radiant heat , via the ceramic floors, was in good conditon.  Unable to see the heating elements beneath the floor, the thermal imaging report provided me with a peace of mind that the heating system was in good shape.  I am pleased with the home inspection that Mr. Juarez provided and highly recommend Homequest Home Inspections to whomever is in need of this service.
