All homes should be inspected. Just because it's new doesn't mean its perfect...
Knowledge is key...
Our proprietary and copyrighted report format, independently written,
delivers the information you need to make an informed decision.
Our diverse backgrounds combine over 60 years of multi-discipline construction and technical backgrounds to ensure a complete and thorough inspection of every property. Our inspectors collaborate daily to ensure we provide reports that deliver on that experience for each client.

5 Certified Inspectors
One Common Goal
Our proprietary approach ensures your home inspection is complete and considers a balanced approach to the home, how systems work together, and identifies necessary repairs recommended to ensure your largest investment is protected and works for your financial future.
CL-100 (Termite Letter)
Most lenders in South Carolina will require a termite letter. Even if they don't, Termites can cause havoc and untold damage on your home. Our Third Party provider focuses on this task while we focus on your home.
Radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer death in the United States. We live in an area where Radon concentrations tend to be greater than in other regions.
Lead Based Paint
If your home was Built prior to 1978 consider lead based paint testing. It's likely there are areas present, however, it's only problematic under certain conditions.
We offer sampling and testing services for Asbestos. Long known to be a health hazard, Asbestos can be expensive to remediate and is still found in older homes - siding, tiles, HVAC insulation, and attic insulation are all potential sources.
The average sewer repair in the US is between $5k and $8k. Whether a public or private waste water system is present, you are responsible for the lines to the road or tank. Our camera finds roots, debris, blockages and goes from the home to the tank or lateral at the street.
Indoor Air Quality
Whether buying or already in your home, are your sinus or allergy problems worse? An Indoor Air Quality test can determine the types of mold spores or allergens present.
Drinking water quality may be required for a FHA/VA/USDA loan product. However, we always recommend this test to a Buyer purchasing a home on a well. Generally, this is not an issue, but a basic panel can keep your family healthy.
FHA Foundation Certification
Buying a manufactured home on a permanent foundation with a FHA Loan will likely require an Engineering Certification. Even if one has been completed prior and there is an addition or a deck added, it is likely the Underwriter will make this a condition of the loan.
Unfortunately, this is a realty we live in, and don't let the neighborhood fool you. Meth Residue has been found in $100k and $1M homes in our area.
Qualified as an Expert Witness, and familiar with Codes, we offer your Seller, Plaintiff, or Defendant the opportunity to prove their case. We also offer simple Inspection Report review against the Building Codes in effect at the time the home was built and/or renovated are reviewed against the requested repairs.
Why Choose Us
We’ve built a reputation through delivering quality
services, on time, and with superior client care.
We focus on you.
Our focus is on delivering and meeting your expectations. We work for you - not the Realtor. We stand by our reporting and will assist you beyond the inspection with any Seller push back.
Easy to read reports.
Proven and demonstrated easy to read and concise reports without added fluff. We make recommendations based on best practices and observed deficiencies. Writing what we see, nothing more. No endless referrals - we own what we write.
No Pay at Closing Fees.
Other inspectors claim no hidden fees, then want to charge you to pay at closing. While we prefer to be paid at time of service, in the case of Seller concessions it just makes sense!
No secrets. We word our reports to make them easy to read and understand, we use simple language, and layman terms that are not alarming. And we are the only firm that uses a Clinical Psychologist on a quarterly basis for revisions. An on-going process committed to excellence.
Largest Service Area.
Again, some inspectors want extra fees for travel. We offer services in Greenville, Spartanburg, Anderson, Pickens, Oconee, Laurens, Union, and Greenwood counties all for the same fee.
Reports are uploaded the same day, or early the next morning before you wake. Time is of the essence and we recognize your need to start making decisions and reviewing the document as soon as possible. Electronic delivery and saved for 5 years.
And last, but far from least – The Inspectors…
The first step is a one-day ride along to see what the day in the life of one of our inspectors is like. Afterwards, multiple interviews and background checks are performed. Once this is completed, they must first earn their license before being hired. Once licensed, they begin a comprehensive training program lasting anywhere from 4-6 months. During this time, they see many crawlspaces and attics. They test numerous electrical outlets, gradually moving through the paces until they can perform an inspection on their own. Generally, 1-2 months to learn our processes and expectations.
The second month finds them being introduced to report writing. Our pest inspection partner also trains them on Wood Destroying Organisms and moisture concerns in crawl spaces during this phase.
In month 3, they begin doing supervised inspections and writing reports on their own which are reviewed by the Inspector training them that day. This process is on-going until Jacki and Stuart agree they are ready to be on their own. Then, Dave begins working with them and fine tuning the expectations. Having supervised them prior on some days, Dave is able to see the growth and understand the weaknesses from the rest of the team. They write all the reports and collaborate with the team on learning the good, the bad, and the ugly and how we write it up.
At this point, it is simply a matter of how quickly they can learn to convey the findings in our language, in our report format, and properly document the inspection. Typically, before being turned loose on their own, our new Inspectors have 4-6 months of supervised field work, have conducted 50-75 inspections on their own, and have written nearly 100 reports.
Just because you have a license does not mean you are a home inspector. No other local company invests in this level of training to prepare a newly licensed inspector.
Our Service Area
We have helped over 5000 clients across the Upstate make wise decisions during the emotional process of purchasing a home.
