Ken Melton

I have been doing this for a long time and I have seen alot. I love what I do and I am a people person. I believe that this helps set me apart from my competition. I am not the cheapest in town, but if your thinking inspection cost, that's not what you should be looking for in a home inspector. You should be looking for experience and an inspector who is willing to spend time with you and put his findings in perspective. That's what I do. Just read my testimonials.

I am a local, a Virginia Beach Native, and I am well versed in all types of systems and residential construction in our area. I always take time to educate potential buyers about the details of their new home.


Felt very confident having Ken do our inspection on the home we are purchasing while we are out of state and moving across the country. Also very glad to know the things he found will be fixed before we move forward.

Ken was pleasant and very thorough. I highly recommend him.
- E.K., May 2016
Ken was recommended not only by our real estate agent but also by our son who had used his services when purchasing a home. Ken was courteous, timely and answered all of our questions. He spent time doing his work and then spent time with us showing us where everything was, how everything worked and provided tips on how to effectively use the HVAC systems during the summer and winter months. We went over the inspection findings providing suggestions and ideas as to how to better address the issues found. Ken is truly a professional!
- T.P., May 2016
The entire process was a joy. Ken was very thorough and took time to look beneath the surface. He made me feel very comfortable that he was not going to miss anything of consequence. His responses to me and the seller agent were direct and informative. The HomeGuage portal is useful and user friendly. Thanks Ken for taking the time and making our experience less stressful.

Mr. Ken did an excellent job on the inspection of our home. During the inspection Mr. Ken checked for so many different things and found items that would have been extremely pricey for us to get fixed; such as problems with our roof, insulation and even found issues with our electrical outlets. You can not go wrong with Mr. Ken, as well as seeing the major house issues he informed us of many of the smaller issues as well, he is a great inspector and very friendly.

Mr. Ken was an amazing home inspector. He went above and beyond during our home inspection and cited 1 critical home repair as well as many others to include a simple faucet that needed repairs. He was not afraid to get under the crawl space and do a very thorough inspection to notice the critical repair that needed to be done. He was friendly and VERY KNOWLEDGEABLE in all areas. He was even willing to sit down and teach me about a few things I was not knowledgeable on. Overall, he was great and whenever I need another home inspection he will definitely be the number I call.

Ken did a great job checking out our future home. We had questions about some things that were found, and he explained everything so that it was understandable, and we were well informed of the issues and options. He also took the time to show us the specifics so that we could see with our own eyes what he had found, rather than just showing us pictures of his findings. I would highly recommend Ken to anyone looking for a home inspector that is looking out for your interests as a new homebuyer.
