was timely, respectful, super fast and full of extensive construction knowledge. My realtor, neighbors and I all found it to be quite the educational experience. Because the house was still under-construction, we have invited

At first I was very happy with the inspection. The inspector found a lot of plumbing leaks that the seller had to fix, along with a couple of significant electrical problems which were also fixed. The report seemed very thorough with multiple photos and a very professional look.
The unhappiness started when I had an issue with one of the toilets making a very loud whistling noise. I hired a plumber to come out and fix it. The plumber (Servant Plumbing) arrived and

started on the toilet only to discover that the shutoff valve did not shut off the water..
Charleston Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
? He said that he would have to rebuild the toilet and to do that he would shut off the water at the street, but before he did that he asked if I would like him to check the valves for the other toilet, and the sinks; I said yes to that. Two other valves were completely frozen open and would not turn at all. I also asked him to check the water heater.
Well, the water heater was leaking, and when he tried to loosen one of the connections on the top, the threads completely disintegrated, but it gets worse... we could not find the 240 breaker set for that water heater, and there was NO GROUND at all! WHAAAA? How could an inspection not catch those things? Bottom line? I had to have the toilet rebuilt, the bad valves replaced, the water heater replaced, and a pressure tank added. I still need to have the electrical problem fixed and that's coming up soon; damages? Nearly $1,700... so far.
Let's say that you have valves like the ones in my house and you don't know that they don't work and, hey, you had an inspection so you think things are OK. Your upstairs toilet starts leaking, badly. Well, or course you would shut off the valve and call the plumber... but wait... the valve won't shut off and the leak is now worse because you messed with the shutoff valve. You run downstairs to turn off the water at the street... (you know where that shutoff is don't you?). You find the cover for the shutoff valve and run to get a tool to open it. You open it and find that you need a tool to shut it off.. do you have one? Better hurry because that water gushing from your toilet is now showing up on your kitchen ceiling....
My problem with Palmetto was my contact after all this damage was found. I was very surprised that these valves were not part of the inspection. Palmetto's answer? Basically, 'not my job'. I was told that the inspection only covers looking at the valves to see if
they are leaking.... seriously? A valve that will not shut off can become a HUGE problem for a lot of home owners. The inspection should definitely cover those valves. Had those been inspected, and the sellers refused to pay for those repairs, I would have just had it done when I moved in... who wouldn't? How was the water heater inspected and neither the leak, nor the electrical problem were found? Beats me.

went throughly through everything with great attention to detail. He also gave ideas on repairs and prioritized what needed to be done and what was only a minor cosmetic issue. it was definitely worth the price.

It was wonderful! The home is very old, built in 1945.
Charleston Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
did an amazing job being very thorough,not rushed and is very knowledgable about older homes. Some of his details about the history of the home were so interesting. Also, he is very investigative, if he notices something unusual - he pushed to find out more details and in doing so told a story about the home in a way. Very entertaining. Most importantly, he is very sure of his task and we felt very comfortable with his confident decisions. He clearly knew what he was doing and was concerned with our needs, including children specific precautions. We will be keeping his number for future use!

New to the area, I utilized Angie's List as my go-to resource for inspections I needed for the home I'd placed under contract. Requiring a home inspection quickly, I contacted
Charleston Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
and a few others (two of which never returned my call - both rated with A's!).

was EXTREMELY easy to work with. Scheduled and paid for the inspection online a day and a half in advance,

followed up with a call to confirm the appointment as well as an email. Website was very clear of services provided, Inspector was prompt, thorough and answered all my questions.

I found

on Angies List, my first time using the website, and I could not be happier. I went with
Charleston Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
rather than the home inspector recommended by my realtor (who is also on Angies list but not rated nearly as well) and I was very impressed. He was extremely easy to get a hold of, and was able to make an appointment with me a week after I called!

showed up right on time and got straight to work. The inspection was very thorough,
Charleston Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
went over every inch, opened every window, and checked every crawlspace. He did multiple tests including an infrared scan of the house that shows any missing insulation,
Charleston Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
leaks, etc, and took lots of pictures. He answered any and all questions in detail and was very easy to get along with.
I highly recommend him to anyone who has a home they need inspected, he has decades of experience and puts it to use. His final report is very detailed and includes a general summary in addition to his specific contractor recommendations.
WISH I COULD RATE HIM HIGHER!

Very professional and reasonable rates. Was thorough in looking at everything. My only complaint was the back door didn't lock and that was missed. Something we had to fix as soon as we moved in. I would hire again.

fit us in on a particularly booked day so that we could get this done in accordance with our sales contract. We arrived about 1.5 hr into the inspection and were able to interact on site. I highly recommend this, as does

!
Charleston Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
walked us through all of the needed repairs and issues with great attention to the detail. He also provided us with information about the needed repairs and made it clear when something was a costly, significant issue vs. a small one that we could take care of ourselves. Basically, while you are ready to go crazy with all of the information about what is wrong with the house, he provides some calm energy and gives you information that realigns your reaction with the actual severity of the issue!
His report was thorough and complete. The photos and additional markup helped illustrate the issues. We were even provided information on best building practices so that we would be able to improve upon the existing work when we take possession of the home. We could not be more satisfied with the work.

Other than a brief spat of missed communications, this was a pleasant experience.
Charleston Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
does his continuing education at the start of each year, and his online calendar indicated days he was available for inspection where he was actually in school. Once that was cleared up and he arrive, he showed up early, but did not impose, instead walking around the outside until my wife had joined us so she could be present for the inspection. He was very thorough, if maybe a little chatty, but super friendly as well. He caught several issues we had overlooked resulting in us purchasing our home with much more knowledge than we would have oherwise had.

Thought we had a mold problem under the house. I just needed a crawl space inspection-I did not want the full inspection. Called
Charleston Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
after checking Angie's List. He called back right away. Arranged for next day meeting. Did the inspection. Called me with a report. Sent full E report with lots of GOOD pictures by e-mail. Quick, courteous, professional, friendly. This single transaction made the price of Angie's List worth the cost for the whole year. STRONGLY recommend this inspector. You will not be disappointed!
