Repair Cost Guide

Cost Guide Overview

 

Cost Estimations

The following repair cost guide is provided as a courtesy to our clients and their real estate agents. The dollar values reflect our partner contractor recommendations and/or national averages for the region.

Estimating repair costs are often limited by the non-invasive scope of the inspection itself as outlined by the TREC Standards of Practice and the Inspection Agreement. The onsite costs of work to be completed by qualified contractors may vary based on the actual scope of work and materials needed.

 Further Evaluation

It is highly recommended that clients seek the opinion of a qualified contractor when the report advises “further evaluation,” especially involving major mechanical systems or potential water penetration. The majority of real estate agents work with a team of preferred contractors. If the client or agent need assistance in connecting with a qualified contractor, feel free to call Super Concierge at 817-697-8737.
