Dave Fahrenthold Licensed Professional Real Estate Inspector
TREC LIC# 24160

As your home inspector it is my duty, and my privilege, to provide you with the best service possible and to arm you with the information you need about the condition of the property. I have the experience and knowledge necessary to provide a detailed inspection and to distinguish between major and minor problems with the home. I am also certified in COVID-19 safety guidelines to ensure the safety of all parties involved.

I encourage you to be present during the inspection. You'll be able to see the condition of the home first-hand, and I'll be able to explain everything to you as I move throughout the house.

I have lived in Central/South Texas my entire life so I know the importance of a reliable air conditioner, a good roof, and a strong foundation. My background in industrial inspections and experience in home construction/renovation/repair led me to become a licensed real estate inspector. A graduate of San Antonio College and Texas State University, I am a lifelong learner and I participate often in real estate inspection continuing education. My family and I live in the beautiful Woods of Shavano neighborhood and I enjoy the rich history and cultural heritage of the San Antonio area.

Exactual Inspection Services provides professional home inspection services in San Antonio, Bexar County, Cibolo, Converse, Schertz, Timberwood Park, Boerne, Canyon Lake, Live Oak, Selma, Universal City, Alamo Heights, Bulverde, Fair Oaks Ranch, Kirby, and surrounding areas.

Standards and Qualifications

I've been trained by some of the best inspectors in the country, and carry the AHIT certification. AHIT is the largest home inspection training institute in North America, and is approved by ASHI, NACHI, and other professional organizations. I'm ready to put that experience and knowledge to work for you.

My Service to You

I will conduct a thorough visual inspection of the property to give you a clear picture of exactly what it is you're buying. With that information at your fingertips, you'll be able to make an informed decision and avoid any nasty surprises in the future.

Below you'll find a general outline of what my home inspections include. For more detailed information, visit my services page.

What Is Included in a Home Inspection

Prompt and professional. The owner, Dave, performed a pre-listing inspection on my house. I was surprised by how thorough the inspection was as well as his knowledge of codes and regulations. He took some infrared camera photos that showed I am getting a lot of heat into the house from the attic door which really added some value. He also used a drone to inspect the roof and showed me one of my downspouts was clogged. Some very cool utilization of technology. Just had to give him a 5 star review.

We hired Dave because he was Covid-19 trained and he wore a mask and gloves during the inspection. We were not sure about getting an inspection but Dave found some problems we were not aware of so we are glad we got the inspection. Dave is professional and thorough, highly recommend.

My parents recently were provided services from Mr. Fahrenthold with Exactual Inpection Services and this is what they had to say, "Mr. Fahrenthold recently inspected an inherited home for us. He was very thorough and answered our questions in a professional manner. We were very impressed with his skills to use and read all instruments used during the complete inspection. He pointed out minor findings and recommended actions we could take to repair. Later we received a detailed report that was easy to understand. We would definitely use him again".
