was knowledgeable in his area. He answered promptly and responded to our concerns to the best of his ability. His assessment helped us to discover a serious mold problem that had developed in a home we were purchasing. The home at first sight would have never given the indication that a problem to this magnitude had developed. There had been a leak that seemed a minor issue that could be easily addressed. Based on his assessment, we called in professionals to estimate what it would it would take to repair the damage. The estimate came in ranging $20,000-$30,000. This obviously was a big deal. We were unable to reach to terms with the owners unfortunately and walked away from the property. We are grateful that we had this knowledge in our hands before going to close. Although we lost a total of over $1000 for inspections and appraisal, we saved a huge headache and much more had we not been made aware.

It’s rare to find the consummate professional
these days, especially in the chaotic and fast paced
housing
,
so I was really surprised and lucky to find
Brown. Many of the home
inspectors in the
area, spend a lot of time marketing themselves
using videos or other promotional media, but their integrity, punctuality, and
professionalism are lacking. Before finding
, I had a terrible
experience with one of the more well-known home inspectors around town.
After letting him do a home inspection for one larger property, I decided to
have him also do the inspection for a smaller rental I was buying, and to my
surprise he tried to charge almost the same for a unit that was ¼ the
size! When questioned about this, he gave the excuse that he still had to
block out almost the same amount of time for the inspection. Needless to
say, I fired him and told him that if it required the same time, that was due
to his own poor time management skills.

is the complete opposite of this. Not only does he charge a fair price
jobs based on the size and age of the property, but he also does a better job
than anyone I’ve ever seen! He generates a full blown inspection report
quickly and literally leaves no stone unturned in his in depth analysis and
research. Furthermore, since I am a busy investor and can’t always be
present onsite for inspections,
always makes himself available for follow
discussions by phone.
Lastly, whether in the
for a home
inspector, doctor, or car mechanic, the number one value I look for in a
professional is honesty, integrity, and availability, and this is where

outshines the rest. For each property he inspects, he does it as if he
were the buyer. He will give you his honest analysis—both good and bad—so
that you know the true condition of the property. Unlike other home inspectors,
he will work hard to get the home inspection done quickly if you need to move
fast. I highly recommend
and advise others to contract with him
whenever an inspection is needed.

The house we are buying went under contract on a Wednesday, and since we only had 14 days for due diligence, I was worried that I wasn't going to be able to find someone to do a thorough home inspection in time for us to be able to respond to the sellers of the house.
After a bit of phone tag getting the appointment scheduled,
Charlotte Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
was able to come and check out the house that next Saturday, which was both record time in getting this completed, but also allowed me to be there for the inspection without having to miss
Charlotte Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
. I arrived 30 minutes earlier than our scheduled time expecting to wait around, but
Charlotte Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
was already there starting to look around the exterior of the house.
During the inspection, my Realtor and I had limited interaction with
Charlotte Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
, but he was sure to cover my main concern-- the fireplace-- by giving me general information as to its condition. Afterwards he walked me through the entire property pointing out all of items that he had noted during his inspection. He treated me with great patience and respect as we covered each area and he answered my questions.

was able to turn around the inspection report 48 business hours later, saving me and my Realtor much worry and stress. The report was laid out clearly and included pictures of all problem areas.
I will highly recommend

This inspector made mistakes, made recommendations he wasnt licensed or experienced to do so on.
First, he claimed there was visible water seeping into our crawl space and there was a moisture problem that needed to be remediated. He didnt even do a moisture reading. We had a professional moisture company come in and totally refute this claim. The crawl space is bone dry, there is no water seeping though the brick walls, there is no moisture on the ground, and no signs of any moisture on the insulation/wood beams, and the moisture reading was 10% to 13%, which is very good. It appears that because the bricks were discolored from possible prior problem, the inspector never even touched the claimed wet spots, jumping to a false conclusion.
Next, he detected a few small hairline fractures in the brick foundation of our 28 year old house and said they had to be repaired. A later inspection by an engineer dismissed this inspectors recommendation.
Next, he claimed one of the seals on our window had leaked and moisture had gotten into the window. When we inspected that claim we found he was wrong again. There had been slight splatter from painter who had painted the door. Inspector should have been able to see the difference between fog and beige paint, and should have felt the windows to verify this claim.
The inspector also made claims and remediation recommendations on the structural support system and the ridge vent opening of our new roof. An engineer we talked with said unless he's a licensed engineer, this inspector is not allowed to make an assessment on structural matters. Our understanding is that he's not a licensed engineer. I will update this review when we get the engineer's report on this matter.
As for the roof, it was installed by a reputable roofing company that warranties their work. We are having them come out to explore this inspectors claims, but its highly unlikely that they would have installed the vent with too small of an opening for air to flow through.
Basically, this inspector does shoddy work, over extends his area of expertise, cost us time and money to refute some of his claims, and created a lot of headaches for our transaction. I would strongly suggest you avoid using him.

We used
Charlotte Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
for a full home inspection when we first moved to
Charlotte Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
3 1/2 years ago. His report, which included extensive photos, was extremely thorough and uncovered numerous areas which had to be dealt with by the homeowner prior to our purchase. Since then, we have brought him back from time to time to assist us with various issues. Recently, we had him inspect a deteriorating railroad-tie wall dividing our property from our neighbors and which we have been pressing our neighbors to replace (it's actually on their property).. His report was used by us as the basis for filing a complaint with our
Charlotte Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
, which finally took action. Yesterday, he was here to evaluate the condition of our masonite siding prior to an exterior painting. This gentlemen is thorough and professional. You can't do better.

Hired
Charlotte Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
to do a pre purchase inspection on a ranch house built in the 1960. I was not able to be at the inspection but sent my mother as my representative.The sellers agent was present. The home was not currently occupied. It was the home of a senior citizen and her adult sons were selling the home. While the house was beautiful as you toured it, there were many serious
Charlotte Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
issues that
Charlotte Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
was able to professionally identify. The crawl space was in terrible shape with
Charlotte Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
of water running through it The founation had lots of structural concerns. All of these were not areas that I would have found independent of such a detailed inspection. There were issues with previous electrical work done, and possible fire risks. I was under contract for an asking price of greater than 300 thousand, as the house appeared to the untrained eye to be in great shape. After getting estimates on the costs of repairs to the crawl space and foundation alone being greater than 25-30 thousand I opted to withdraw from the contract. The sellers agent commented that
Charlotte Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
was"too thorough in its inspection". When my money and the safety and health of my family is in play you can't be too thorough in my opinion! I think
Charlotte Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
did a great job and really helped me to be able to make an educated decision about purchasing this particular home. I will definitely use
Charlotte Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
and his company again.

Inspection went great and was incredibly thorough. We had a punch list of items that were noticed by the inspection down to a granular / detailed level that was greatly appreciated. We also requested a Radon inspection and were glad we did because there were elevated levels that were found in the home. After we provided the list of items to the sellers they fixed the majority of them as requested.

came back and inspected the fixes, although I cannot speak to whether there was a cost associated with that (I imagine there was for the sellers).

showed up on time and was extremely professional. He spent over three hours with me going over the options and explaining all the various solutions to fixing the mold problem I have. I also want to commend him for being so patient with me as I had several service calls from other vendors while we were there. If you have any mold issues I highly recommend

When I first called
Charlotte Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
, he answered while he was under a house and it was very hard to understand him. That's about the only negative thing I can think to say, and I had a good laugh with the mental picture of someone answering a phone in a crawlspace. He showed up before his promised time of 9:30AM and got to work immediately. The home is a fixer-upper and I asked a mountain of questions, each of which he answered in clear language and took the time to explain some of the backstory of which things are in need of repair and how they should look when fixed. He left no cranny unchecked, nor electricial wire untested, explaining details to me throughout. He ended up taking around 4.5 hours performing the inspection (mostly due to my excessive questions) and I anticipate great detail in the report. I ended up forgetting to invite my realtor (d'oh!), so I can't relate how he interacts with other non-customer professionals. Overall, a very positive experience and I would hire him again without thinking twice.
