About Chris Nowling

State Certified by the Texas Real Estate Commission (TREC) #2123, licensed by the Texas Structural Pest Control Board (TSPCB) #0561310, TPCL #0707925, member of the International Code Council #5142161 and a member of the Austin Board of Realtors (ABOR).

(12) Years of construction experience as a 2nd generation Home Builder- General Contractor- Framing Contractor.

Industry Experience

In 1993 Chris attained Code Certification through the (SBCCI) Southern Building Code Congress International for One & Two Family Dwellings. This certification is much more difficult to attain than the Texas Real Estate Commission license. The test for this certification requires passing a 4 section exam (Structural, Mechanical, Plumbing, & Electrical). 8 hours are provided for the exam. If the inspector fails one section the entire exam must be taken again. Few home inspectors have this certification.

As part of Texas Real Estate Commission licensing act I am required to complete at least 16 hrs of continuing education every year. After 25 years that is a lot of continuing education in all phases of construction that includes keeping up with industry standards and new products on the market.

Chris has performed in excess of 11,000 home inspections in the Central Texas Region. With more than 30 years of combined construction and inspection experience you can be assured that you have someone that understands buildings from the inside out. The experience he has comes from both sides of the transaction. He has been a contractor and dealt with contractors. This experience helps Chris educate his Clients about their purchase. In the inspection industry it is easy to "scare" people, it is much more difficult to "educate" them.

Inspections are conducted in accordance with Texas Real Estate Commission Standards of Practice and Code of Ethics. Copies of these are available at https://www.trec.texas.gov/sites/default/files/pdf-forms/SOP-pocket.pdf. Client participation is encouraged as this is a valuable time for exchange of information between the client and the inspector.
