Chad was very thorough and professional. We were trying to get the home purchase done from out of state and Chad had all of the pictures, technology, e-signatures and everything else to make the inspection system proceed as if we were "virtually" in Charleston.

Great job, very knowledgeable answered all of our questions, being the inspection was late afternoon on a Friday i felt he would put a rush on it. But that was not the case he seemed to do a very thorough job. Was also impressed with the final way the documents were presented to me. It made it very easy to complete a repair report for the items i wanted fixed for the seller.
- C.K., Mt Pleasant SC, May 2017
Very comprehensive, complete and timely report. Unquestionably helped me avoid a few potentially costly issues not visible with the "naked eye." Great job!

Having moved 5 times in the past 15 years, I have been through this process before. However I had not received the experience before that I received with Chad recently. Chad was prompt, courteous, thorough, knowledgeable, and all around the right inspector for the job. You could tell he knew what to look for and shared those findings with us, explaining what we should be concerned with (and not so concerned with), as well as answering any questions we had. The reports he provided were also extremely beneficial and helped put this buyer's mind at ease.
- D.G., Barnhart MO, April 2017
Chad was very punctual, thorough, and a pleasure to work with. After fully inspecting our house, he took time to review his findings and answer all our questions and concerns and give recommendations about repairs that need to be made. We received the official report early the next day and were pleased with the thoroughness.
- S.H., April 2017
Chad is just the man. Incredibly professional, incredibly knowledgeable, he cares about your (the homebuyer's) future home and he wants you to move into a home in great condition. He found things wrong with the home that blew my mind he found it; basically he finds things wrong that licensed contractors (who are licensed in one area) couldn't even find. Anytime I need a home inspection Chad will be who I call and recommend. Thanks, Chad.
- M.B., April 2017
Chad did an excellent job and was actually a referral from someone else! I am very happy with the detailed work that Chad did and with how quickly he got the inspection back to us. Thank you so much Chad!!
- K.H., March 2017
Wasn't expecting to see many things wrong with the home, since it's a new build. Incredibly glad we did the inspection and had you take such a good look at it. You even took the time to mark the cosmetic issues which is never expected on a home inspection. Really appreciate the effort and time that went into our inspection. Thank you!
- R.V., March 2017
great job both times - this house and Wellsley Circle earlier
- J.T., March 2017
The thoroughness of Chad's work was very impressive and made my wife and I feel much more comfortable about purchasing a 30 year old home. Also, the inspection report that we presented to me was well organized and made it very easy to understand what areas to focus on.
- C.J., March 2017
Chad was very knowledgeable and professional. He was able to answer all of our questions while continuing to complete the inspection.

Also, thank you Chad for your service to our great country!! HOOAH
- S.C., Hanahan SC, March 2017
Very thorough, did everything you would expect of an inspection, including examining the wiring to the fusebox. Detailed documentation of everything including pictures. While on-site, Chad also took the time to explain his methodology, findings, and recommendations and made sure I understood. He was personable and accommodating when I had to interrupt our conversation to field calls from work. Report was completed less than a day later but was still thorough. Company was easy to work with, open communication and simple payment method.
- L.M., March 2017
Very detailed! Great inspector! Would definitely recommend! Very nice! Helpful! Explained things very easily!
- C.W., March 2017
You did an excellent inspection. Thanks
- P.M., March 2017
Chad was awesome. He was like a ninja moving around the house. Didn't take long either. Might be time for a new camera. That one is pretty dated, so maybe an upgrade to get better pictures. It was awesome that it got scheduled quickly, he was on time, it didn't take long, we were able to pay online with a credit card, and it was ready for us the next day!!!
- D.T., February 2017
Very thorough and impressive!
- J.H., February 2017

- J.C., January 2017
Chad was 100% professional and talk about thorough. He walked me through each item listed on his report and addressed my question to the extent that I was satisfied I understood the issue, it's severity, and how it is best addressed. I feel very prepared in addressing all fixes needed with the seller to make this house my home. Thank you Chad!
- K.K., January 2017
Chad was knowledgeable, friendly, thorough, and a pleasure to work with. I would highly recommend him and I will certainly request him for my next home inspection.

- M.P., October 2016
Great job. Thanks for all of your hard work.
- R.S., October 2016
You did an amazing job and found things that none of us clearly thought to look for. After reading over your inspection I do like that you added the arrows pointing directly at the issue each photo was meant to address, that would certainly help with future clarity if any issues were to crop up. Thank you for your help Chad!
- K.H., October 2016
Very thorough, detailed, and easy to understand inspection report! Thank you!
