Chris Debord is one of the most professional and detailed home inspectors that I have ever met. My wife and I have lived in over 20 homes and have gone through the purchase process for four homes over our 48 years together. We learned much about home safety, quality, and repair while talking with Chris during the inspection of the home we were interested in purchasing. During the inspection review, Chris was very patient in answering our many questions. He never rushed us nor gave the impression that he had better things to do than review the results with us. We left the house feeling we were very knowledgable about the condition of the property.
From the initial scheduling call with Amanda to the moment we left Chris at the house, we were treated with the utmost courtesy and respect as one could expect.
- J.H., May 2020
Professional. Thorough. Honest. Courteous. Recommended 110%.

We are incredibly happy we chose Chris and Code 3 to inspect our house before we bought it!! When calling to make the appointment, Amanda was very personable and explained everything we should expect when Chris came out. She covered all of the different types of inspections they offer but wasn't pushy at all. Code 3 was able to schedule us early in our option period giving us plenty of time to go over the report with our realtor. Chris walked us through the inspection and explained everything that he found along with why it would be on the report. He is incredibly thorough and made us feel very confident in the largest purchases we will ever make.

Chris was extremely thorough and detailed in his home inspection. This is definitely the level of service you want when buying a home. He took the time to explain how the thermal imaging works to make it was something I really wanted before I paid the extra cost. He also showed me where certain items were on the property such as water shutoff and AC filters which saves me the time of searching on my own after I'm in the property. Also really like his on-line system where I can create a report for specific contractors or the seller's agent focusing on the particular issues of concern and the remediation requested (repair, replace, $ value offset).
- S.L., July 2019
Thanks for the great walk through and for being so patient with my poorly timed meetings! Really appreciate your handling it so well.
See you at my next inspection!
- T.S., Austin TX, July 2019
Chris was fantastic. Not only did he do an excellent job with the inspection and the walkthrough, but he took extra time to explain aspects of the property and homeownership in general since we were first-time home buyers. We had a number people of on-site that day to inspect various parts of the house, often requesting our attention while Chris was walking us through his report. Chris graciously waiting for us each time, never growing impatient and happily picking up where he left off. We probably kept Chris longer than we should have, yet he was always a pleasure and kept the mood light. Thanks, Chris!

Chris and Amanda are the dream team when it comes to home inspection. Chris is incredibly knowledgeable and made me feel confident that I knew the house inside and out after the inspection. Amanda was warm and friendly over the phone and went above and beyond in accommodations for the inspection. They both made what can be an incredible stressful time relaxing and comforting, and made it apparent that they are most interested in taking care of people and their community.
- A.B., April 2019
HomeGauge did a great job of inspecting our two year old house. Almost everything on the report has been addressed by our builder (some 30 items). I just wish we had done the inspection before we moved into our new home, This would have saved us a lot of headaches trying to get the homebuilder to perform these tasks.
- G.R., April 2019
I thought you were thorough and knowledgeable and we were really grateful for all your tips and you made the whole process quick n easy.
- C.G., April 2019
Chris was great, patient, knowledgeable, detailed, and friendly. I highly recommend Code 3 for your next inspection - who wouldn't want a retired fireman to make sure your home is safe and to help you make an informed decision on the purchase of your potential new home?!
- J.C., April 2019
Chris went out of his way, on VERY short notice, to inspect a home for us the same day we ordered it. The inspection was thorough and professional; we will definitely call him again for any inspections!

I found Chris to be very thorough in his inspection, and he was able to clearly communicate what he was seeing with the house.

All in all, it was a very positive experience for us, and we would not hesitate to use Chris again if the need arises.
- J.W., February 2019
Very though and professional. He explains everything in detail and understandably for people that aren?t familiar with all the details that go into a home inspection. Highly recommend!
- A.G., February 2019

- S.P., January 2019
Let me start by saying that i would consider myself a meticulous person, which i know my wife would say that this would be a major understatement. So finding, and trusting, a home inspector is very difficult for me. We are new to Austin, so we decided to utilize Chris DeBord's services by referral, and we are so happy we did! Here is why..
Chris was present at our appointment when i arrived, which was about 10 minutes beforehand. Chris was extremely approachable during our introductions and proceeded to tell me exactly how he approaches his home inspection, which gave me a great blueprint for how our time together was going to look. Chris then offered to explain anything and everything is as much, or as little, detail as i would like. After about my 50th question, followed by great response after great response, i knew i could trust this guy. Being that i am a new Texas resident, i had a lot of questions about the foundation, soil conditions, air conditioning, etc. Chris was an encyclopedia of knowledge and was extremely thorough in his explanations, but worded them in a way that was easy to follow. During our time together i even learned a little bit about his background in that he served in the military, as a paramedic, firefighter, and now as a home inspector.. jack of all trades. Chris is also a licensed termite/pest inspector which was super convenient and allowed me to get even more information right away. Our inspection lasted about 4 hours, and afterwards we met my family outside (who were not present for the inspection). Chris then gave my wife a brief summary of the inspection and offered to answer any of her questions as well. After that we ended up just talking for another 15-20 minutes about Texas, family, food, you name it! Such a hospitable guy.
Later that evening after I received and read Chris's report, i ended up calling him and asking him even more questions. Chris and his wife, (who is also an inspector), were more than happy to answer all of my questions, which really put my mind at ease! Chris makes himself available even after he is paid and his reports are completed. If/when i need another home inspection I will be utilizing Chris DeBord again!
- E.B., January 2019
Chris was on time, very professional, friendly, technically proficient in all details, and he was very thorough in the inspection and in the report. My realtor was very impressed and said that Chris was the best inspector he'd seen in 17 years. Chris and his wife make a great, honest company.
- R.E., December 2018
