Wonderful Customer service. Very Knowledgeable.
- T.M., Beaufort SC, January 2023
Their inspection of our new home under construction was an invaluable asset. The report that they provided was very clear, even to someone like us who have no experience in construction. It is obvious that they have a lot of experience in inspections. They work well with our construction manager to insure that the finished home will meet our expectations.
- D.O., November 2022
Mike was a huge help and we felt he very thorough. Honestly, we were extremely satisfied in comparison to other inspections that we have had.
- L.T., November 2022
Coastal Home Inspections did an excellent job on our recent inspection of a 19-year-old, 6300 sq. ft. home. The inspectors were excellent, very knowledgeable and provided a very detailed report of their findings. Everyone in the business was very available for follow up questions. They inspected our smaller home 6 years ago, so I was happy then and obviously happy now.
- L.L., November 2022
They did an excellant job in explaining all that was done during the inspection !
- S.S., Ridgeland SC, October 2022
Great detailed in-depth inspection. Very much appreciate your work.
- S.M., October 2022
Excellent Inspection with detailed report.
- T.F., October 2022
Our inspector was Harry Stoud. Harry was there when we got there, and we were early. He introduced himself, explained what he would be doing, and what he would not be doing, and then methodically went about his business. He was both professional and polite. When he was done he gave us a verbal outbrief and promised the on-line report no later than the next morning. It arrived the same evening. It was thorough and clear, supported by photos. I would recommend Harry.
- R.H., October 2022
Very thorough inspection and details report. Pictures included on all notes which was very helpful. I will highly recommend Coastal Home Inspection Services as well as Keith and Jamie Hutcheson. Benton, the office manager, made scheduling so easy and kept us updated on communication with builder.
- C.R., September 2022
Very pleased with the detail in the report. Everything was clearly spelled out and easy to understand. Exceptional value, absolutely would recommend this service.

Very easy to work with. Always sends great inspectors who are thorough and precise in their explanations of both the positives and negatives found. Fair and competitive prices. Wonderful articulation of the home inspection report.
- S.B., August 2022
Great service
- S.F., July 2022
Very thorough, but irritating and unprofessional to include such minutia as burned out light bulbs and food stains on kitchen cabinets. Let's stick to the meaningful issues, not the everyday items that people don't need an inspector to point out to them. It would be better if you could prioritize the results so people know what's most important.
- R.P., July 2022
They are the best of the best!!! HIghly recommend!!!!!
- S.G., July 2022
I highly recommend Keith and Jamie! They were very accommodating and were able to perform the inspection within one weeks' time of my contacting them. Their inspection was thorough and the report easy to understand. Linda

- J.A., June 2022
Thank you for your thoroughness and allowing us to ask you questions during your inspection, much appreciated.
- G.E., Reynoldsburg OH, June 2022
Coastal Home Inspections, and specifically Michael O'Keefe, does a very thorough job in inspecting homes. They take the time to explain to the client the areas of concern they found after completing the inspection. This is then followed by a detailed written report with pictures documenting all areas inspected. In addition, they provide home maintenance items suggestions for the future homeowner. They arrive on time and reports are sent out within 24 hrs and sometimes the same day. As a realtor, I value the work they do and the customer service they provide to my clients.
- N.C., May 2022
As thorough as I have seen, and I have done this multiple times. Then took the time to verbally go over what they found. Report was well written and the photos made it easy to see the issues. Price was more than fair.
- D.W., May 2022
We were impressed with the detailed Inspection Report. We're still in Michigan and it was beneficial to get the feedback on our new home. Thank you for your professionalism.
- C.T., May 2022
Keith was wonderful. He was professional and knowledgeable and answered all our questions. We couldn’t be happier.

Michael, our inspector did a great detailed job and answered all my questions in a timely manner.
- R.S., March 2022
Coastal Home was great! They were fast to take our request and made an appointment in hurry, as we had very limited time to make decision on purchasing the home. The two inspectors we had (Harry & Mike) were extremely thorough. They walked us through their findings and report on the day of and we had hard copy of inspection report at 6:00am the following morning. They were professional and courteous throughout. They were very hands on with our real estate agent and kept everyone in the loop during the entire process. I would highly recommend Coastal Home and we will use them again in the future, if we need to!
- H.Q., March 2022
A very thorough, professional team! Easy to work with and explains things concisely.

- J.P., November 2021
Wow, They did a tremendous job. Great detail & pictures. Thanks for all the super work. AWESOME. Thanks, Mark & Alison
- M.H., November 2021
I was able to get insight on construction in the Low Country as compared to that of the Northern Mid-West, my previous home. The inspection was thorough with suggestions for maintenance throughout the year. This inspection was the second reviewing of the house before my warranty contract ended. There were several items that needed to be repaired which I would have NOT seen or noticed. Photos made it very clear that the inspection was worth the money to avoid larger damage costs in future years.
- M.E., November 2021
these 2 gentlemen were very professional, personable, courteous, and knew what they were doing. the report they wrote was extremely detailed and easy to understand. and they gave us a few pointers on how to better take care of our house, something they did not have to do. i am 100% satisfied with all they did. tony fiorillo
- A.F., November 2021
Great detailed inspection report! Fast Service!
- T.W., November 2021
Very detailed report. The pictures and detailed explanations by Jamie and Keith clearly presented each issue. This made it very easy to provide our concerns back to the owners as part of our purchase process.
- G.S., October 2021
Provided good, timely service to help with discussions with the home builder. Some items I would not have picked up on and were important to try to extract as much quality out of the home build as possible.
- D.R., September 2021
I cannot say enough good things about Mike, Harry and the whole team. We wanted to have a second inspection because the first inspector with a different company was negligent and missed a number of critical issues. When Mike and Harry showed up and we saw how they approached things, we had immediate confidence that we were in great hands. They were very knowledgable, thorough, professional and explained everything very clearly. Their report was detailed and provided us the necessary documentation to have a fair negotiation with the seller. I would highly recommend them and would absolutely use them again on another future purchase.
- K.N., September 2021
Mike and Harry were very thorough as was the inspection report. Answered all of our questions with clear and concise explanations. Made recommendations where needed. We have used Coastal on two occasions and would highly recommend their services. Lou and Joanne F.
- L.F., September 2021
Keith, I hit submit on a previous comments and suggestion survey, did it register. I left a long detailed report, all in great praise for you and your company. Hopefully it registered.
- D.M., September 2021

- P.S., September 2021

Keith and Jamie are absolutely wonderful. They took the time to explain the issues we had. They were also very informative. If needed I would use coastal home again.
- C.W., September 2021
Keith and his team are knowledgeable and professional in all aspects of construction. Great people to help you with your home inspection needs.
- D.W., September 2021
Keith, Jamie, and their whole team were incredibly helpful. Responsive, reactive and thorough through the whole process. We hired them for a pre-drywall inspection, working entirely remote and couldn't have asked for better service. We will be using them again for the final inspection and look forward to having the chance to meet them in person at that time.
- D.K., August 2021
Very courteous, professional and thorough--
- A.L., August 2021

Absolutely recommend them for home inspections. They were professional and thorough. I was able to make an informed decision based on the condition of the house because of the inspection. Thank you!
- L.M., July 2021
Our inspection of the house we were buying was very thorough. Every area of the house was inspected inside and out, top to bottom. The detailed report gave us all the information we needed for areas of the house that were a concern and needed to be repaired or further inspection needed. We were very happy with the service we received at a fair price.
- H.J., June 2021
I would definitely recommend this team. They did a fantastic job. They told us things about the house that played a big decision NOT to buy it! At least now, the seller has to disclose what was found. At least I hope they do.
- M.H., June 2021
Keith and Michael were very professional, on time, and friendly. Their report was very thorough and helpful in dealing with our contractor.

- A.C., April 2021
My dealings with Coastal Home Inspection Services was exceptional. Being for out of state, I was a little skeptical of what I was in for. Dealing with Keith Jamie and Benton was a great experience. Their Customer Service was exceptional as well as being very thorough in their reporting... C.H.I.S. is very easy to recommend. Thanks Team.
- J.B., April 2021
Keith and Jamie were so thorough! They were very patient with questions and were so easy to work with. Will absolutely recommend to anyone in the future.

- C.H., April 2021
First time I've actually been present during the inspection. At the end of the inspection, our inspector was able to review all the major findings with me in person. This was invaluable. He also answered my questions and explained things I did not understand. I would absolutely recommend Coastal home Inspections.
- C.C., March 2021
Did a thorough job. Facetimed with me to explain what they found.
- D.K., March 2021
The home that we are purchasing was only a few years old so we didn't expect to find a lot of issues in the inspection. We were correct in thinking that there were not a lot of major issues, but I would certainly recommend Coastal Home Inspections to anyone who is looking for a home inspector. Even though we didn't have a lot of issues that came up with the house, the inspection contained a lot of information about the features of the house that we may not have been familiar with in newer construction type of homes. Our inspector was great and always willing to answer any questions in as much or as little detail as we required. We were very happy with the results and it was well worth it!
- S.J., March 2021
thorough and complete thanks for a job well done
- J.A., March 2021
Very thorough. Attentive to our concerns. Prompt and professional.
- T.W., February 2021
Our team is very professional. Reports are detailed and easy to understand. Team did an outstanding job of communicating throughout the process. We have not participated as a purchaser in this process for over 20 years, but I found the cost to be reasonable. Would ask that title be changed from Perri to Terri. Thank you
- D.F., February 2021
Very detail quick efficient and when I had follow up questions answered right away!

- P.S., January 2021
Cindy and I were extremely pleased with the work down by Keith and Jamie. They were friendly and professional, and very thorough in their inspection. We were informed of all issues, large or small. Those that we needed to have fixed and those that we should just monitor over time. We would have no problem using their services in the future and highly recommend them to anyone needing inspection services for their property.
- M.S., January 2021

- A.U., December 2020
