We have dedicated a great deal of resources to insure that the inspection report that you receive will be of the same high quality inspection after inspection.
We are certified by Carson-Dunlap_Weldon for commercial inspections and have performed inspections on buildings up 60,000 square feet.  
So call us or contact us at with any of your inspections needs including Radon, residential and commercial! 


Over 7000 inspections performed. Professional home and commercial inspections by 2-3 of our four licensed inspectors.

Nice thorough report. Thanks for the personal walk-through to highlight most pressing concerns.
- J.C., July 2019
Professional, friendly, knowledgeable. That's pretty much all you need in a home inspector. Have already recommended to a co-worker.
- T.C., December 2018
We would like to say thank you again for such high quality, professional service and quick turn-around time in providing the comprehensive inspection report. You deserve your sterling reputation in the community, and we will certainly call you again should we find ourselves in need of another home inspection.

Thanks for always taking great care of our clients!

Adam Cole, his daughter, and another Cole's inspector came to inspect this house I have a contract on. They were extremely thorough with the inspection---going everywhere, and inspecting every possible place and item that could be seen. If there was an issue, or possible issue with an item in the house or on the outside, one of them would show me the area and explain what was going on there. They explained everything in a way I could understand what the issue was. In addition to the outstanding job with inspecting, they were all very friendly and answered all questions I had. Adam Cole is also child-friendly, so don't worry if you have small kids that have to come to inspection. My 5 year old granddaughter instantly liked him, and walked around with him holding his hand! She called him Mr. Workman. And she ran and hugged him when they left. You probably couldn't find better inspectors if you tried.

Great company!! Very professional and very prompt with everything they do. Will defiantly use again when needed.
- S.S., June 2017
The inspectors at Cole's Home Inspections are very thorough & helpful. I highly recommend their entire staff to anyone needing a home inspections!
- P.D., Hickory NC, May 2017
I really appreciate Adam, and the guys. They are always prompt and friendly to my clients- both buyers and sellers. They are knowledgeable regarding home construction and inspection. When clients have questions they are answered in a manner as to provide information, not persuasion, allowing the buyer/seller to make their own decision regarding property improvements/repairs. Barbara and Mike Cole always respond in a timely manner. It is nice to work with a family owned business. I've come to really appreciate their company and the service they provide to Buyers, Sellers and Agents. Thank you, Cory Klassett

Coles always does a thorough inspection, no matter if I represent the buyer or the seller!. Can't argue with success!
- B.T., Mooresville NC, June 2014
I was very impressed with the thoroughness of the inspection itself as well as the report, including pictures. I was also impressed with how respectful they were to both myself and the seller who was in her mid 90s.

Honest and straightforward! Inspects for the Buyer, not the transaction.

As we currently live out of state, we were not present while inspection occurred. The report received, however, was very detailed and thorough. An excellent job was done and we are very satisfied with the results. Would recommend to anyone requiring this service.
- D.P., Morganton NC, February 2014
Thank you Adam and co-worker for great professional service.
- R.M., December 2013
I was thoroughly impressed with the entire Cole team, from start to finish. As a first-time home buyer it was very helpful to be welcome at the inspection, and have any and all questions answered on the spot. I was walked through the entire process as it unfolded, and now understand many of the most important structural and maintenance issues a homeowner must be aware of. Unfortunately, serious problems with the property were revealed during the inspection that convinced me to reconsider a purchase, but I am immeasurably grateful to have learned about these problems when I did. I received my completed report promptly, and was very pleased to find it both scrupulously detailed yet easy for any layman to understand. I highly recommend the Cole Team to any current or prospective home owner. And since my house-hunt continues, I plan to call them again very soon.
- J.S., September 2013
Thanks for being so thorough and being available to answer some questions I had about what was found during the inspection.
- S.P., September 2013
Very efficient and friendly! Josh and I couldn't have asked for better inspectors. Thanks for a job well done!
- J.B., August 2013
You were professional and very thorough. Your system of providing the report the same day as the inspection was an unexpected bonus and certainly enhances your service.
- M.S., August 2013
Mike Cole and his team inspected the new construction home that we are purchasing. My husband and I were very pleased with Mike Cole and his team, their level of professionalism, and the overall quality of the Summary and Full Report provided. Mike was also very specific and helpful on providing a breakdown of any issues that needed to be addressed. This included pictures of any findings and notes of repairs that were needed. If there was anything that we did not understand Mike ensured that he educated us on this issues at hand. Coles Inspection Services provide top-notch service and are highly recommended!

- L.I., February 2013
We recieved a very detailed report of more than 30 pages. That does not mean there were any major problems with our new home, it just means Cole Inspection services is thorough. We were able to use our report with an electrician, HVAC, and general contractor. The language was clear so they were able to address the minor issues.
- J.R., February 2013
Very prompt with reports, does a thorough job. He did this inspection for a house that I am purchasing but has also done one for a home that I sold. I would definitely call them again.
- H.H., Lenoir NC, February 2013
They went through the entire house inside and out with a fine tooth comb. Gave me every detail no matter how minor it was. Great job!
- G.P., January 2013
Great service and very thorough. I was very skeptical at first about the whole home inspection process and felt it was just another added expense in the home purchase process. Not now - these guys saved me money in identifying repairs and potential problems for the future. They also explained how some of the more complex systems in the house worked. Would definitely recommend their services!! KW
- C.W., November 2012

Thank you for doing such a detailed inspection of our home... We have alittle work to do before putting our home on the market, but I would rather know now than later, in order to have the time to take care of the any repairs before selling. After the repair work is done...and our home is in as good of condition as husband and I will have a peace about passing our homeownership to a future buyer! Thanks again, Sylvia
