Builders and remodelers (see TRCC website for registration requirements) doing construction projects subject to inspection under Subtitle F of Title 16 of the Texas property Code in an unincorporated area or in another area not subject to municipal inspections (Property Code, Chapter 446) must have a minimum of three inspections conducted by a fee inspector, as applicable at certain stages of construction.
GE Reaves Engineering, Inc. does foundation inspections, also known as the pre-pour, and completes the necessary on-line steps for the contractor to proceed in completing this TRCC requirement.
A Third-Party Inspector is appointed by TRCC when a SIRP (State-sponsored Inspection and Dispute Resolution) request form has been filed, either by a homeowner or builder.
If repairs are made, the builder arranges for the original third-party inspector to re-inspect the corrected defect(s).
In addition to foundation/pre-pour inspections GE Reaves Engineering also performs elongation and pier & beam inspections, as well as Windstorm inspections.
A soil sample can be collected and tested for “Atterberg” limits (soil plasticity), allowing for s site-specific foundation design.
2-10 Home Buyer Warranty inspections are another service that is offered
