My name is Mark LeGros, and I own LeGros Home Inspections. I am the sole inspector. I do not use apprentices for my work. I do each inspection as if I were the one purchasing the house.
My company provides foundation, structural, mechanical, electrical, plumbing, roof, HVAC, and sprinkler system inspections for new and existing homes in all of the Greater Dallas/Fort Worth area which meet or exceed the Standards of Practice of the Texas Real Estate Commission (TREC) and The American Society of Home Inspectors (ASHI).
I can arrange for a wood-destroying insect ("WDI" or "termite") inspection of the house.
I perform interim phase inspections with ICC code references where applicable for newly-built homes and homes under construction, including pre-pour, pre-drywall, and final inspections before you close on your house.
I perform inspections before your builder's warranty expires, renovation/remodeling inspections, and sellers inspections.
Our service area covers the entire Greater DFW area including: Collin, Dallas, Denton, Tarrant, Rockwall, Grayson, Cooke, Wise, Parker, Hood, Johnson, Ellis, and Kaufman counties. An additional travel fee would apply for any inspection located 40 miles or more from our office location.
My experience includes over 40 years in the construction and real estate industry. From a beginning in residential, commercial, and industrial construction, and renovation and restoration of homes in historic New Orleans and its French Quarter, I went on to become Maintenance Supervisor for Soniat Realty, Inc., one of New Orleans' largest real estate management firms.
I have been licensed and active in the real estate industry since 1984. I have been inspecting homes in the Greater DFW area as a licensed Professional Real Estate Inspector since 1993.
Since moving to the Greater Dallas area, I have inspected over 10,000 homes as a licensed Professional Real Estate Inspector. I have trained field inspectors for real estate asset management companies under contract with The Department of Housing and Urban Development in Dallas and San Antonio, Texas, Phoenix, Arizona and in California in the cities of Irvine, Downey, Palmdale, and VanNuys.
I have a Bachelor's degree from the University of New Orleans.
I hold the Certified Professional Inspector (CPI) designation through TAREI. I hold the Master TPREIA Inspector (MTI) designation through TPREIA, and am on the Board of Directors.
I am a member of the following organizations: The International Code Council (ICC) with the Building (B1), Mechanical (M1), Electrical (E1), Plumbing (P1), and Residential (R5) Code Certifications, The International Energy Code Council (IECC) Residential Energy Inspector/Plans Examiner, The American Society of Home Inspectors (ASHI), The Lone Star Chapter of ASHI, The Texas Association of Real Estate Inspectors (TAREI), The North Texas Chapter of TAREI, The Texas Professional Real Estate Inspector (TPREIA), The Texas Department of Insurance, and, The MetroTex Association of Realtors.
I currently serve as Chairman for the City of Coppell Building and Standards Commission and the City of Coppell Board of Adjustments, and have served as either Chairman, Vice Chairman or Commissioner since 1995.
I am a registered Texas Real Estate Commission (TREC) Inspector Qualifying Course Instructor (#96). Consulting inspector for the first wind-powered home in Louisiana or Mississippi in 2009 for Waring Architects, LLC. (www.waringarchitects.com)
My company holds an unblemished record of exemplary service throughout our 10-year membership with the Better Business Bureau of Greater Dallas. No complaints have ever been filed against our company.
