Top Notch Home Inspection, LLC performs home inspections in Blount and surrounding east Tennesse counties. David Sparkes has 25+ yrs. of knowledge and experience in every facet of the building industry. Reports delivered same day.


I am a retired contractor from Florida. I contacted David to inspect and evaluate work done on the home of my elderly mother in Tennessee. I could not have ask for a more professional and through evaluation. He responded quickly and his knowledge of the current building code that was in effect in the county my mother resides was actually quite impressive. I have come into contact with numerous home inspectors during my building career and I can say without doubt that David Sparkes far exceeds them all.

David did an extremely detailed inspection on the home my wife and i had contracted to buy. He identified multiple potential issues that I would have never seen. He was prompt and communicated every step of the way. I would definitely recommend David and TopNotch Home Inspections to anyone, and already have.

David Sparkes didn't miss anything when it came to our home inspection. He was extremely thorough! His home inspection was laid out nicely, and was easy to follow. I recommend him to anyone and everyone!! He is extremely knowledgeable and has a lot of experience doing home inspections! We will definitely use him again, if we ever move!
- M.W., September 2016
I'm very happy with your detailed inspection.
- P.C., August 2016
Very thorough. The most detailed and to the point inspection I have ever seen. Would definitely use again and recommend to everyone
- R.K., May 2016
David was very prompt and thorough in his inspection. His report was very detailed and pointed out many issues we didn't see and probably wouldn't have found until it was too late. We feel comfortable in our decisions based on his observations and assessment. We will most certainly call on him again!

I chose David because he had just done the inspection on our current home for the buyer, and I saw just how closely he examined everything. Even though I saw that, I was absolutely amazed by the level of detail and thoroughness of the inspection at the new house. I was also really impressed that the final product was delivered in less than 24 hours and had clear digital pictures marked with arrows to identify every item. That's really helpful for those of us who aren't familiar with all of the construction "lingo". It saved me from having to Google a bunch of words to find out what specific items were, such as a lentil. I specifically thanked him for his work in the driveway when we were all leaving, and told him if we ever bought another house or knew anyone needing a home inspection I would recommend him. I guess that being willing to hire the same person a second time says just how impressed we were.
- K.C., May 2016
We have already told friends that David is who they need to call if they purchase a home. His precise and detailed inspection of our new home was spot on and so appreciated. There were many things that he caught, that will save us a lot of stress in the future! Thanks David!!
- J.D., Powell TN, March 2016
David is professional and totally comprehensive. He is willing to answer any and all questions and allows the buyer to walk through the entire inspection with him. I highly recommend him!
- D.W., March 2016
Thank you for the thoroughness of your work at 'our' house. We are both very pleased with the easy to read format and video segments.
- J.B., September 2015
Thanks David for an excellent home inspection. Your thoroughness and detailed investigation revealed not only hidden problems but also provided useful info on future maintenance considerations. With 33 years experience in the sophisticated Metro DC Maryland real estate market, I have met few inspectors as knowledgeable and detail oriented as you are. Every homebuyer needs someone like yourself in the homebuying experience. The process is long and complicated and the unknowns are always hanging over any transaction creating stress and fear. You eliminate a huge amount of that with your detailed and technical approach and you have all the tools to make it happen. I will highly recommend your talents and experience to all my friends, agents and fellow buyers. Thanks again.

David, I really appreciate the home inspection you did for me. The report you sent the same day was very through. You did an absolutely wonderful job. Many thanks, Cathy

I couldn't feel more sure about an inspection. David is EXTREMELY thorough. I was present throughout the inspection and he was willing to explain what he was seeing. He and his wife were a joy to work with. I believe he inspects a house as if his family were going to live there. Thank you so much!
- S.T., June 2015
Dave did a thoroughly professional job. This is the 4th home I've owned and I have never had such a competent inspector. He went to great lengths to do the best job possible, responded promptly to my questions and concerns, and I highly recommend him to anyone needing a home inspector!
- S.M., June 2015
Very thorough. Easy to read and understand. Loved the pics as well, that show the problems. David is the best inspector I have ever used. And I have owned 9 homes. Best money ever spent. I work at Bass Pro Shops, Tracker Boats. Meet lots of people on a big scale everyday! Word of mouth is the best Advertising, and I will highly recommend David to those that are needing an honest, man that does a fantastic job. Sincerely, Angela Lawler

I am very pleased with the thoroughness of your inspection, and the report was very detailed and easy to comprehend. My mother was thinking of having her home inspected to see if it needs any repairs. I have already recommended you to her.

David did a fantastic job on my inspection. My daughter who is an engineer went over my report with me and said he did a great job on my inspection. It is hard to come by compliments from her on these types of reports so I was impressed. I would HIGHLY recommend his services. Monica W.
- M.W., December 2014
Mr.Sparkes went above and beyond in his home inspection. He was more than willing to walk me through what he was doing. He explained what he was doing and what he was looking for. I would recommend him to any of my friends and family. If you are looking for an Inspector who is good, and very knowledgeable in what they are doing. Then Mr. Sparkes is the person you need to pick.
- J.C., December 2014
Looked over everything very thoroughly and kept us well informed during the inspection. He inspected the entire home and noted every detail to help us in our decision making on the house. I'd recommend him to any friend that asked and I would definitely use his services should the need ever arise again.
- C.P., October 2014
Did a great thorough check of the home! Would definitely recommend
- L.R., September 2014
I believe the greatest compliment one can pay a professional home inspector is to employ their services a second time when the need arises. Such has been our experience. Two different properties, two inspections, one purchase. David saved us several thousand dollars and the irritation of having to do a lot of repairs on the first property by conducting a thorough inspection. As he inspected the second home he has given us confidence in making the purchase and valuable information about the physical condition of the property. We give Top Notch Inspections our highest recommendation without any reservations.
- J.B., August 2014
David did a very good job and was really thorough. If anything negative it would be how long it took. I have been on many inspections and they usually avg. 3 hrs at the most
- L.J., August 2014
David Sparkes was an outstanding home inspector for us; from our initial contact with him to the completion of the home inspection and the prompt delivery of the final report. His first priority was to do a thorough job of inspecting the home without regard to the amount of time it took him to do so. He was on premises for a total of 4.5 hours. He was courteous and a true professional in the performance of his work. We recommend him without reservation. We will continue to employ his services should the need arise in the future.
