A home inspection is an objective evaluation of the physical structure and systems of a home and also a functional check of all its major systems and appliances. Take a look at our Service page for a detailed standard home inspection list.
What is an Inspection?
Although home inspectors are now required to be licensed and regulated by the State of South Carolina, this does not guarantee experience and education as most were grandfathered in with little or no previous experience (only a 4 day training class is required!). Our qualifications are far advanced in comparison to our competition. I have 20 years experience as a state licensed Building Official and as a General Contractor. I have many additional licenses and extensive training and have performed thousands of inspections. It is to your advantage to hire an experienced professional to have peace of mind for one of your most important investments. Contact me to schedule your inspection now!
How we do it.
We perform professional, industry standard home inspections using only certified South Carolina licensed inspectors. You will receive an in depth comprehensive computer generated report within 24 hours including digital photos. We will send out copies via email to you or anyone else that is in need of the report.
A professional home inspection gives you an independent, unbiased view of any potential problems and their solutions, so that you will have all the facts you need to make a sound, informed decision.
We take our inspection reports seriously. Every inspection is a complete and thorough analysis of all the major systems and components in the home. The report includes a clear description of what we’ve found with any potential problem areas noted, so you can easily identify them.
Includes: insulation, ventilation, trusses, strapping, tie downs, wiring attachments, and other visible related items. All attempts are made to access all areas of the attic when possible.
Includes: insulation, ventilation, posts, vapor barriers, utility attachment, structural items, floors and walls, and columns.
Heating and Cooling Systems
Includes: air handler, air cleaning parts, duct work, electronic testing, air conditioner and line sets, and other visible related HVAC components.
Plumbing and Fixtures
Includes: water pressure, water distribution system, hose bibs, sinks and faucets, bath/showers and toilets, sanitary system, and other plumbing system components
We evaluate the structural components from the roof to the foundation.
Water intrusion can be a serious matter for any building.
And much more!
Includes: shingles, flashings, chimneys, vents, trim and gutters, drip edges, skylights, downspouts, and other visible roof related items. We walk every roof when possible for a more thorough roof inspection, unlike many other property inspection companies.The inspector will determine on site whether a roof is not walk-able due to pitch, material conditions or weather conditions.
Includes: service entry and clearances, service panel, switches and outlets, GFCI, AFCI circuits, visible wiring and junction boxes, grounding system and other related electrical components.
Includes: siding, windows, doors, vents, soffit, fascia, entryways and other visible exterior related components.
