General Manager

Luis Santana - General Manager of AA InspectionsHe was born in the island of Puerto Rico, in the Caribbean; and yes, he speaks Spanish fluently. During his summer vacations in high school, he worked for his uncle in his construction company. As a gopher, he had his share of opening ditches, stacking concrete blocks for the mason crew; mixed, carried, and lifted mud unto the scaffolds. Yes, he has his share of not so glamorous jobs. Before entering the university, he was called to active duty and due to his construction experience, he was designated to become a Combat Engineer. Later he attended Basic and Advanced Engineer Officer School, where he had the opportunity to further train with electricians, plumbers, and carpenters. In college, he chose the field of Construction Engineering Technology during the day; at night, he opted for HVAC trade at the vocational school to complete the ensemble. Years later he obtained the Master Licenses in all the skilled trades which inspired him to continue growing professionally and he decided to become a City Inspector. As time passed, he pursued the certifications from the International Code Council (ICC) in the major categories, to include the revered Building Official classification. In 1995, he shifts direction and was offered a position as Plans Examiner. During the last few years, he became certified on the Minimum Housing Standards and successfully passed the State and National Licenses to become a Registered Texas Professional Licensed Inspector for the purpose of opening his own business. Today, he operates his own home inspection business and continue to add additional licenses and certificates to his accomplishments.

Another side of Luis is his dedication to noble causes, so he became a Residential Property Condition Evaluator to assist those who insurance companies labeled “uninsurable” due to the location and/or condition of their residence. Also the Loss Control Program takes care of the water damage remediation (WDR) program. First, customers must: 1. Notify their insurance agent about the incident, 2. Get a registered professional to make the needed repairs. If the damage is great, a restoration service may also be required, 3. Once the repairs and restoration (if any) work is done, AA Inspections should be ready to inspect the work for compliance and completeness, to issue the report for your insurance provider.
