- J.K., February 2018
Thorough, knowledgeable, good at communicating issues and how things work, and easy to work with! Terrific!
- K.K., February 2018
Erskine, we really appreciated your honesty and communication throughout the inspection. We learned a lot about homes and house maintenance etc. in our time with you. We will plan to use you and your family for all home inspections in the area and will recommend you to any of our friends and colleagues!
- L.V., January 2018
Erskine did a great job inspecting our new home! His report was delivered quickly and was complete with suggestions and things that needed to be fixed. I would highly recommend his service!
- B.B., December 2017
We had our new home inspected on 12/18. This is our first home, so we were very nervous about the process. Erskine walked us through the entire home inspection. We were very pleased with the results. We received a 93 page report at the end with complete details and photos documenting everything we needed. I would highly recommend him as an inspector to anyone buying a home.
- A.W., December 2017
Probably the best investment was to hire you as our inspector. Very professional and informative.
- L.L., December 2017
Erskine did my pre-closing inspection and identified a faulty ridge vent and a missing gusset connector plate. These items were missed by the inspector I hired during the pre-drywall inspection. Professional, patient, solicits questions and provides simple to understand answers.
- K.B., Raleigh NC, December 2017
Erskine is fabulous, not alarming, but misses nothing, always friendly and punctual and never rushes my clients who have questions or whom may be late.
- K.S., December 2017
Erskine was very professional and took the time to make sure the inspection was meticulously done. Thoroughly checked every part of the house (including the crawlspace and roof). The final report was put together with clear explanations of what needs to be repaired and what needs to be checked with the builders. Highly recommended.
- G.J., December 2017
Erskine is very knowledgeable. Not only he did very good work on home inspection, also he give very good home maintenance tips. This is very helpful for first home buyer.
- W.W., November 2017
Thanks for being professional and thorough. We wasn't sure what to exactly expect as a first time home buyers. However you were impressive, knowledgeable and so friendly. You will surely be a recommendation. We thank our agent for having the wisdom to use your company as well.
- T.A., November 2017
Erskine was fantastic to work with and provided a thorough inspection of our home. He was detail-oriented and gave us guidance and education during the inspection. I highly recommend his services and appreciate his wonderful customer service.
- A.M., November 2017
Erskine clearly knows what he's talking about and took the time during the inspection to patiently explain every aspect of our prospective home as he worked his way through it. The report he provided repeated and expanded on what he told us in person along with providing maintenance tips for the home. I can't recommend him enough!
- S.G., November 2017
Erskine was thorough in explaining everything to us and did an excellent job overall. Could not have asked for better service!
- M.M., November 2017
Extremely thorough and professional. Walked us through everything in a way we could understand. Pointed out things that would be good for us to remember in the future for maintenance. He had a good sense of what things were normal for a house of this age and was not sensationalist about anything. Overall we felt immediately that we were in good hands, and this was confirmed when we got a very detailed and careful report. Well worth the peace of mind when considering a home that is 88 years old! We would highly recommend him!
- T.W., November 2017
Erskine did a thorough home inspection and I appreciated his detailed report! He was very personable and professional and scheduling was easy. I highly recommend Erskine!

Erskine Betts was very thorough, and after reviewing his report on our future home, we feel confident in our decision.

- M.S., June 2017
Mr. Betts was very prompt and thorough in his inspection of our home. His report was easy to read and contained pictures to identify problems that needed to be fixed. He not only saved us from having to pay for these needed repairs ourselves, but he found some issues that, if they had been missed, could have led to serious structural problems. My wife and I are very glad that Mr. Betts was our home inspector. Beyond the home inspection, Mr. Betts has been a huge help. We are moving to NC from CO, and with the differences in climate and critters we had several questions about the best way to protect our home, which he answered. He is prompt in responding, professional, and knowledgeable. I recommend him without reservation to anyone needing a home inspection.
- C.B., June 2017
Thank you for being thorough and taking the time to discuss issues with me during the inspection. I appreciate the time you took to write the inspection report and the notes you added.
- D.H., June 2017
Erskine was extremely helpful - ensuring I knew where all shutoffs, electric panels, etc were and showed me exactly what issues he found that I needed to be aware of, what would happened if not fixed, etc. He was patient, answered all my questions fully, and was extremely knowledgeable. He was also very professional and kind, just an all around great guy!
- E.D., June 2017
Erskine Betts did an excellent inspection and follow up prior to our 11 month review, several areas of concern were noted and will be brought to the builders attention. Very thorough.

- N.S., May 2017
Despite this being my first home buying experience and my resulting lack of familiarity with a number of household component standards and expectations, the walkthrough proved to be very informative, and the corresponding report does a good job of expanding upon what was mentioned during the walkthrough. Thanks again!

- T.T., March 2017
Erskine did an outstanding job inspecting the home we are buying. He was extremely thorough and explained several items to me during his inspection. He was very clear in his explanations and in indicating items that were important, needed attention or just for my information. His report (80 pages) was very detailed and he highlighted those areas needing additional attention. He included many color pictures within the text to clearly identify each item he comments on. Bottom line, I recommend him highly.
- J.M., March 2017
Mr. Betts is the best. He did a great job on my daughter's inspection a few years ago and the same recently on our condo unit. I will definitely recommend him to others and call him again, if needed.
- M.F., March 2017
Erskine was extremely thorough and very clearly communicated his observations on the property.

Erskine, I want to thank you for your work inspecting our recent home purchase. I was profoundly impressed with your knowledge and your willingness to explain some of the issues to me.

Well done Erskine. Good job and report. I've been involved in building 3 homes, designed one, and managed the building of one.
- R.L., Perry OK, December 2016
Erskine did a fantastic job. The report was thorough, easy to read, and honest in opinions and areas of concern vs areas for further evaluation. Considering the depth and breadth of detail, to have this returned in less than 48 hours is to be commended as it certainly is appreciated when due diligence deadlines are needing to be met.
- A.E., December 2016
Erskine, You did a great job inspecting our new home. I hope to use you on our existing home before sale. I especially appreciated you walking me through the home and giving tips during the inspection. Your report was top notch and the illustrations and photos are extremely useful.

Thank you for the most thorough home inspection we've ever had. Because it's an older home, we were certain there would be issues. Now not only do we have a good understanding of the things to solve before purchase, we have a long to-do list for later as well! It was truly a pleasure, and we'll recommend you any chance we get.
- L.D., March 2016

I've never been through the home buying process so I do not have preconceived notions as to how it should be done, however, I will say I am beyond impressed with how thorough Erskine Betts was with my home inspection. He made many suggestions for us that weren't necessarily a part of his routine inspection but instead were just for our own good. Thank you for your time, Erskine!
- K.B., February 2016
The home I was looking to purchase had a recent inspection done on it, and that report was shared with me. Knowing how thorough Erskine is, I hired him to do another one. It's a good thing I did - he found a major issue that the other inspector missed, and some minor ones as well. It was money well spent and even if he doesn't find anything wrong, it's worth the peace of mind.
