A combined 155+ years plus of experience in the construction and trades!

Over $41.2 Billion worth of heavy, medium, and light construction inspected, and counting. No one else comes close…

Our Values.

Pro-Tech Inspections relies upon our core values of Persistence, Integrity, Trust, Accountability, and Prudence.

Persistence – Never give up. Have a passion for your work and for satisfying clients’ needs.

Integrity – Do what is right, not what is easy. Be ethical and honest. Focus on truth over harmony.

Trust – Trust in your team. Commit to earn their trust. Follow the Golden rule. Respect clients, co-workers, and family.

Accountability – Be accountable to staff, clients, and yourself. Do what you say. Follow through. Exhibit an ownership mentality.

Prudence – Combine understanding with forethought. Listen to what others are saying before responding.

Our Mission.

Pro-Tech Inspections mission is to provide the highest quality inspections and ancillary services. We succeed based on the integrity of our team and the corporate belief and commitment to our core values. We will maintain and demonstrate this passion through continuing education, industry participation, market leadership, and adherence to our Standards of Practice and Code of Ethics – all of which drive client satisfaction.

Our Why.

Simply stated, you.

Our passion is to treat you like you matter. To delight you throughout the process, to serve you,  and to empower you as you make decisions regarding the largest purchase you will likely ever make. To honor those who refer to us. To make you feel like you are the only Client we’ve ever had.


Locally Owned.

The real estate market in our area is booming. Sales are at an all time high. As a result nationally owned and operated home inspection companies are opening up shop in the Upstate. Companies from Atlanta are expanding to take advantage of our market. When you choose Pro-Tech Inspections, or any locally owned small business, your dollars, your choice, your control stays right here. Our staff are your neighbors and our children play on the same sports teams.

We grow together and we build not only our local economy, but our homes together. We have staff members living across the Upstate making direct impacts and spending their dollars at your local business. They are firefighters, paramedics, volunteers, and more. All with a history and heart of serving their communities.

Unlike these  out of state companies – we don’t want to be the Wal-Mart of home inspections. We want to be your life long choice, build relationships, and when the going gets tough, we’re just right down the road!

You see, when the going get’s tough – that’s when we excel! For these out of state companies it’s about the money, they see an opportunity. When the money stops making sense, they close up shop and move away, we’re still be here to answer your calls and serve YOU. We believe it’s about you. If we take care of YOU, the money takes care of itself.
