I spent the following eleven years in the electric utility industry with Duke Power in managerial and scientific positions, including Safety Supervisor at nuclear, fossil, and hydro plants, where I was responsible for safety inspections at large-scale construction and maintenance projects in NC & SC. I am currently employed as the Building Official / Code Enforcement Officer for the town of Clover, SC.

Joe was great in doing the thorough inspection of the house. We can tell that his experience speaks when he does his job. He also thoroughly explains all the details of the findings and its criticality. Strongly recommend Joe for his service.

Joe did a good job on my pre drywall inspection. I plan to use him again for my move-in inspection.
- T.W., September 2018
Joe is a consummate professional, and a true leader in his industry. His inspection is extremely thorough and he caught things that inspectors months before him had missed and brought items to our attention that needed immediate attention and which ones werent a priority. Joe also gave an excellent, easy to read report and left out the silly non sense items. All of his reports are easily accessible online. VERY IMPRESSED with his level of service and highly recommend Joe for your home inspection needs!

Mr. Funderburk was extremely professional and performed a very detailed inspection. As we were a second appointment of the day, he kept us updated as to his arrival time. He was very careful about changing shoes to avoid bringing mud into the house from an earlier rain. He sent both a complete report (containing facts about the house-furnace size, insulation grade, etc.) and also a summary report for the builder's warranty. My husband and I would highly recommend his services.

Joe was absolutely the best inspector we have ever used. We have bought and sold many old homes, and Joe went above and beyond to thoroughly inspect a home that we are looking at. OUTSTANDING! Will use him again, and would recommend him to anyone looking for a very detailed, organized, respectable gentleman.

Joe has been amazing. I'm a first time home buyerand Joe has been very flexible and kind. he made everything easy to understand, I felt like he was very thorough in his inspection, the reports were very nice and easy to read. my realtor even said Wow your inspector did a very good job. the first house was not worth buying due to all the problems Joe uncovered, and I didn't hesitate to call him to inspect the second house I was looking at.I highly recommend him.

I can always rely on your professionalism and expertise. Thank you for another job well done, documented and delivered in a timely manor!

Joe is the top inspector in my opinion. I know he is often hired by the selling agents, so I was very glad to get him for me, the buyer on our potentially new home. His knowledge and experience is second to none! I have used Joe on both my homes and will continue to seek him out to inspect my homes from both the buying and selling side.

Mr. Funderburk saved us from buying what would have been a classic money pit. We live in Florida at the moment and were searching for a home inspector in SC, independent of realtors. We did our research on line and found Mr. Funderburk. He is inspecting another house we chose. We are extremely pleased with his thoroughness and attention to the most minute detail. Thank you Joe.

We contacted Joe as a result of his informative website. Joe promptly performed the home inspection and within 24 hours we had a 54 page report. The inspection report was professionally written, easy to understand, included photos and detail explanations of his findings. Joe was quick to return our phone calls. His expertise in this field is priceless. Joe is very dependable and customer oriented.

Second inspection with Joe, and he was absolutely wonderful again! He does a great job and is very thorough. He points out everything, and lets you know how it ranks on a scale of needs to be addressed right away or if it can be fixed in the future. He explains any questions you may have in very easy to understand terms, and is a generally nice man. Hopefully we will be in this house for years to come, but if we ever need to purchase another home, he will be our inspector!!!
- C.H., May 2011
I appreciate the thoroughness of the full report and your professionalism.
- R.C., May 2011
Very pleased - will never use anyone else! We have been present with Joe on more than one inspection, and he is very thorough. He's never too busy to answer questions or translate what he sees into layman's terms. We trust him completely.
- R.B., March 2011
I really appreciate how kind and thorough you were throughout the inspection process. My husband and I felt like you were truly looking out for our interest, and appreciate the amount of time spent/detail that you put into our inspection.
