Ben Chambless

EVERY client is encourged to be on site during inspection to ask questions, it's your time & inspection and possibly your new house.  Unlike many other inspectors, I schedule time for this.  If you cannot be there,  I can call you prior to completion of inspection and discuss the findings, I will include HD photos and HD video clips of any issues or concerns in the report.


Alabama HI-0833, Since 2004, NACHI, The Home Insp Institute, ASHI, Professional Trainer, HERS Energy Auditor since 2006


Performed thousands of residential and commerical inspections, trained and mentored home inspectors. Adjunct Instructor at UAB, School of Engineering. Over 25 years of Residential and commercial Construction & Project Mgt experience.


Ben did a thorough job and provided a detailed report with pictures. All within a 24 hour period. My buyer and I were viewing it the following morning preparing for our response to the seller about impending repairs. We felt that we had a good understanding of the report because of the time that Ben took to walk us through and explain his findings. Thank you Ben!

I would highly recommend Ben for someone to use for a home inspection. Ben was very thorough and he was not in a rush to get done and move to his next job. He took the time to explain things to me and help me understand things that would be helpful to me as a future owner of the home. He was able to schedule an appointment with me faster than anyone else that I called and most importantly, I was provided with my inspection report later that same evening. Kenneth Springville, AL

We bought a house back in 2011 and used another inspector and we ended up with basically a 3 or 4 page report. With our new house, Ben issued a 69 page report, in depth, with recommendations and future considerations as well as pictures so you could recall what was being referred to. In addition he was more than happy to walk all over the house and give suggestions or advice.
- A.F., February 2014
Ben was professional, on time, and was willing to answer any questions that we had. His attention to detail was amazing and he also made the home buying process much easier and less stressful. We would most definitely recommend Ben Chambless to others who are interested in purchasing a home.
