My Promise to You
Choosing the right home inspector can be difficult. Unlike most professionals, you probably will not get to meet me until after you hire me. Furthermore, different inspectors have varying qualifications, equipment, experience, reporting methods and -- yes -- different pricing. One thing for sure is that a home inspection requires work -- a lot of work. Ultimately, a thorough inspection depends heavily on the individual inspector’s own effort. If you honor me by permitting me to inspect your new home, I guarantee that I will give you my very best effort.
This I promise you.

Examples of defects we found on a few of our Home Inspections
Steel Jacks were installed below the floor joists for extra support at this home inspection in Manchester,TN. Notice the steel jacks were placed on the dirt floor with no concrete footings below offering no structural support. These jacks were basically useless!
This older home was bulit in the 1950"s and most of the waste line plumbing was the original cast iron and had heavy corrosion. We informed our client that the drain line plumbing would need to be replaced soon, which would be a large expense. This home was located in Tullahoma, TN.
The exterior coils were frozen over on this HVAC unit. We first noticed that the upstairs was not heating properly and after further evaluation we determined that the exterior fan motor was inoperable and needed to be replaced. This home inspection was performed in Monteagle, TN.
CRAWL SPACE INSPECTION
On this home we inspected in Winchester, TN, the plastic vapor retarder was missing on the Crawl Space floor. Microbial growth was present on most of the floor joists and many of the floor joists had deterioration along the lower edges from moisture exposure. We recommended to repair the affected joists, mold remediation, and to install a plastic vapor retarder over the crawl space floor.
Electrical wiring insulation was scorched inside the electric service panel indicating that the wires had overheated. We do a thorough inspection of the electric panel and any visible wiring. This was on a home inspection in Winchester, TN.
The inspection on this Lake Home in Winchester, TN revealed severe fungal growth on the basement walls. Flashing wasn't installed properly on the upper deck and water leaked behind the wall for years. The whole wall assembly needed to be replaced!
We found many decfects while performing this roof inspection. Many of the shingles were damaged and loose. The roofing shingles were also balding. We informed our customer that the roofing shingles should be replaced soon. The cost of replacement was roughly $8000.00. We did the home inspection for this house which was located in Shelbyville, TN.
TERMITE DAMAGE INSPECTION
90% of the flooring system had severe termite damage on this home we inspected in Tullahoma, TN. We were amazed by the amount of termite damage to the floor joists, girders, sill plates, and sub-flooing. We informed our clients of the thousands of dollars worth of needed repairs. They didn't buy the home.
