The price of a home inspection is an important consideration. Other important
considerations should be:
- Do they perform all of the inspections themselves or are they a multi inspector firm (that is likely to send out a beginner) I do all inspections
- Years of experience as an inspector 20
total, including 6 in the Carolinas.
- Number of inspections performed by the inspector you are getting
2000+ since 2003.
- Construction background Dating back to
the mid 1980’s.
- Client focused. See my testimonial page.
I offer competitive rates for my services. Actual rates can vary due to
client desires, the total square feet of the home, and the level of detail or thoroughness desired, and specialized or optional

Additional Inspection Services:
Mold Inspections: If you are concerned about mold and/or indoor air quality I am one of a few local inspectors
that is an AIAQC Certified Indoor Environmentalist; I have performed hundreds of mold inspections and remediations. I offer discounts on mold and IAQ tests when they are performed during the same trip as the home inspection.
Radon Testing: If you are concerned about radon I am one of a very few local inspectors
that is NEHA Certified and uses a Continuous Radon Monitor. This monitor makes
it basically impossible for anyone to try and cheat the radon test and doers not require re testing if the results are elevated.
Stucco Inspections: If you are buying a house with either hard coat or synthetic
stucco, be aware that almost all local home inspectors do not inspect stucco and will not tell you that until you get their
report. This unfortunately leaves you to accept the stucco “as is”
or very little time to find a stucco inspector typically at an inflated stucco inspection fee.
Pool Inspections: If the house you are buying has an in-ground swimming pool
we can inspect the condition of the pool and equipment including diving the pool and searching for leaks (conditions permitting).
Permit Searches: Have there been any renovations, additions, or improvements made on the
home you are buying? Was the home “flipped”? Are you concerned about the quality and professionalism of the repairs?
In many instances we can perform a permit search for you to uncover if required permits were obtained, code inspections
performed, was the work passed, and who did the work.
Warranties: If you are interested in a limited home warranty for the home you are
selling we can arrange that.
