Jim Hawk

Whether you are buying, selling or just want to know the current condition of your home, a home inspection is a great way to find out all there is about the home.

Many people live in a home for 10 or 40 years and never look in their attic, crawlspace, or even pull the electric panel to know whats going in these areas.  Even if you have been in some of these areas, do you know what you are looking for as far as deficiencies?

Before you make that big real estate transaction you should have a thorough home inspection for peace of mind about your new joy.

I have a reputation of finding too much and causing a deal to fall through in some cases.  It is not my fault when a home commits "suicide".  My job is to report all my findings, no matter how small. 

My philosophy on home inspections is quite simple.  I spend whatever time necessary to do my job right.  I relate home inspections to heart surgeons.  Sure all surgeons are doctors, but you know that some are better known with great results and others for not so great results.  If you had a heart surgery coming up, would you just accept any surgeon or the surgeon with the lowest price? 

I have many calls requesting quotes and people trying to get a lower price because others are lower.  Some call back with regrets of choosing the cheaper.  My average home inspection runs about 5 hours with picture review on computer at end of inspection with an additional 2-3 hours at home writing report.  I even had one inspection run 18 hours on a 6,500 square foot home!  I tell people if they want a 2-3 hour inspection go with others. 

Key question to ask your real estate agent: "Who would you use to inspect a home you or a family member are purchasing?"  Not, "Who do you recommend to most clients"

Other fee services include radon testing and water tests for bacteria & coliforms.

Aside from the home inspection, I will schedule a termite inspection (wood destroying insect report) with a state licensed pest control company and/or a septic tank pump/inspection if desired.  There is no additional charge for scheduling of these services.  I do my best to schedule these inspections to take place on the same day of my inspection so I can see what they will be reporting on.

If you want an inspection that will do whatever it takes to do the job right regardless of time, and inform you of everything so that you can make the most informed decision - give me a call for a quote to schedule an appointment with our home inspector.

I am a Christian family man with a keen eye. I am very thorough, 4-6 hours per inspection. I have high standards for ethics, morals & integrity. My reputation is for finding too many things wrong. 828.553.8640


Thorough and comprehensive with his inspection. Took the time to sit down with me and explain each item on the report. 100% will refer business in the future.

Thanks for the knowledgeable, thorough, and caring work. It was a pleasure meeting you and your wife! Other comments: AAA Septic team also seems very capable and caring. We did not meet the Terminix inspector, while his report is pretty pointless - at least in our case.

Great communication throughout the process with Jim. Very thorough report. One was done on the house that we are buying from a different inspector over 18 months ago by a different inspector. Many more items were detailed in Jim's report. Good recommendations as to what are timely issues. Highly recommended.

Mr. Hawk provided a though and complete inspection which focused on the areas of interest to me. That said, he was flexible in timing and very sensitive to our needs the day of the inspection. The results were in our hands less than 20 hours after the inspection was complete. He is also friendly and personable. My wife and I would recommend him to anyone requiring a home inspection.
