Questions & Answers
Q: What advice would you give to a customer looking to hire a company like yours?
A: Don't hire a home inspector based on their price alone. Experience and knowledge will outweigh the cost of the home inspection. A home purchase is usually the most expensive purchase you will make. It is important to make sure you have all the information needed to make the right decision. Choose a thorough inspection company like Blackland Home Inspections, where we take our time to make sure you do not end up buying a money pit.

Q: What is the most common type of project or service your company provides?
A: General Home Inspections

Q: In what ways is your company environmentally friendly?
A: We do all of our agreements and reports electronically so we are not wasting paper.

Q: What would you like your customers to know about your company?
A: We are a locally family owned company. The president, Clayton, is native to the DFW area and has several years of construction experience prior to becoming a Professional Home Inspector in 2005. The business manager (and Clayton's wife), Julie, has several years experience in the real estate industry as well. We also have a female inspector, Brittany, who is very knowledgeable and clients and homeowners both love her.

Q: What is your company best known for?
A: Our thoroughness and customer service sets us apart from other home inspection companies.

Q: What separates your company from the competition?
A: Once again it is our thoroughness and customer service. We also are there for our customers even after the inspection. We provide our clients with a free one year membership to the Home Owner's Network. We also include free thermal imaging scans of the home with every inspection. If the home has a standard septic system, we actually dig to open up the tanks. If we can't dig it, we don't charge for it.

Q: Does your company offer a warranty or guarantee?
A: At Blackland Home Inspections, we offer a simple No Hassle Words Guarantee. Attend your home inspection and if for any reason you’re not satisfied with the “Quality” of the home inspection service, tell the inspector before receiving your report and we will either make it right, or you don’t pay the home inspection fee!

Q: What questions do customers most frequently ask you? What is your answer?
A: Do I have to be at the home inspection? Our home inspections take on average 3-4 hours, but sometimes it may take more time depending on the home. We encourage all of our clients to attend the home inspection at least towards the end of the inspection. That way we can go over the report with them and answer all of their questions on-site. However, if they are not able to make it, we can always go over the report with them over the phone if they have any questions once they receive the report.

Q: Does your company offer discounts to senior citizens or veterans?
A: We do offer veterans a discount when asked.

Q: Is your company a member of any associations?
A: Our company is a member of InterNACHI and ARBOR (Arlington Board of Realtors)

Q: Tell us a little about your company.
A: Clayton started this company in 2005 as a single inspector firm and did home inspections under his own name as a sole proprietor. Towards the end of 2014, his wife, Julie, started helping him with the business and reorganized the company to form Blackland Home Inspections. Julie currently assists clients during the process of booking the inspections. They now have more than one inspector working for the company to better serve customers in a timely manner.

Q: What forms of payment do you accept? (cash, check, credit cards, etc.)
A: We accept cash, check, credit cards, debit cards, and money orders all on-site. Customers can also pay online or over the phone.

Testimonials  
By Paul McGinnis
Great experience with Blackland! We used them for two different inspections and both were on time, thorough with an inspection report delivered within hours of the inspection. Julie worked with me closely on one property that had some unique circumstances and I really appreciated the extra care she took to make sure everything went perfectly.

By Ben Tucker
Due to a long holiday weekend, I needed to get an inspection done quickly before my option period ran out. Mr. Houston went the extra mile and worked on a weekend to accommodate me. Thanks to the thoroughness of the report, I was able to negotiate a significant reduction in the asking price for some needed repairs. I realized a more than 10 to 1 return on my investment in Blackland's services. But the icing on the cake was when I called him for some advice a few days after I moved in regarding an electrical problem I was having, and he volunteered to stop by and do a quick test for me to troubleshoot the problem. They really put their customers first. I wouldn't hesitate to use them again should I ever move, and I'll definitely recommend them to anyone looking for inspection services.

Brittney and Clayton were great! Very thorough and knowledgeable...and patient. The did an extensive review of the home and took the time to explain everything to us in great detail. It was even Clayton's anniversary and he acted like he had all the time in the world for us! We were very impressed by their thoroughness and willingness to help. I had a follow-up question and left a message. I was called back within 20 minutes with a response. Highly recommend!!!

Let me start off by saying that Blackland is AWESOME!!! When I called and first spoke to Julie I immediately knew that I was dealing with someone who knew her business and wanted to help her customers. As we spoke about all that was going to be done, the only word that was coming to mind was...Thorough! I have had several inspections before and they all did the basic services and checks that were needed, but Blackland went above and beyond to make sure that I was fully informed on they state of the home that I was purchasing. While on site with Clay, we spoke at length about the home and what he was finding. He discussed with me his recommendations and helped me understand all that was going to be needed. From start to finish Blackland took great care of me and everyone involved were very professional and friendly. If I or anyone I know needs an inspection done I will certainly be calling them back!!!!

By Clauer97
Professional, quick, and technologically advanced. We reviewed the inspection immediately upon completion using an iPad/Laptop as a visual aid and discussed what were immediate concerns vs. what could be addressed in time. I would recommend Blackland to anyone seeking a quick, professional, and experienced inspector. Thank you Blackland Team!

By Larryhawn48
I was very impressed by both Brittney and Clayton. They covered all areas of the home that were of concern. Their comments on how to handle the observed problems were greatly appreciated. I have total faith that I now know what issues need to be addressed. Thank you for your outstanding service.

By Jennifer McConville
This is the second time I have used Blackland Home Inspections. The first time, we were extremely impressed with the all of the different areas that he inspected. We found out things that we would never have known without his report. We had our son's house that he bought inspected with Blackland Home Inspections and again, his thoroughness and his knowledge came through. We are very pleased with them and if we have another house, we will use him again and refer him to anyone.

By Ralph Barber
From the initial phone conversation with Julie, Blackland Home Inspections were nothing less than excellent. Julie made it very easy to set up the inspection and prepared us for the entire process. Once the inspection date was set, Clayton sealed the deal by being a truly knowledgeable and dedicated professional! We are confident that we received the best most informed inspection we could have asked for. We highly recommend Blackland Home Inspections!

By Ashleecreed65
He did a really thorough check of the house that we were looking at. He was very informative and he went through the house with me to make sure I understand what needed to be done. I really appreciate the time he took in showing me what needs to be done instead of just handing me the report.

By Sean Mahone
Clayton went above and beyond in our inspection. He was very thorough and explained everything in detail to what was in our report. We would definitely recommend Blackland to anyone that is need of an inspection. Clayton thank you so much for taking pride in what you do sir!!!!
