Based in Old Fort NC , I inspect homes in  Asheville, Sawnnanoa, Black Mountain, Marion, Morganton, Lake Lure.  Further with a little extra for mileage fees. Real Estate purchases (new and existing dwellings).  Need an inspection for your rental property?  How about HUD 203(k)? or a foreclosure purchase?  Or, consider an evaluation of your residence in which you have no plans to sell?  Finding a problem when it is small can save significant money.  Perhaps you have heard of someone whose refrigerator door water supply developed a slow leak and rotted away the floor?  Or the same with a slow lealing toilet?  Send me into your crawl space and I will battle the snakes and spiders, peel back the insulation and inspect.  I do NOT make repairs, and therefore have no conflict of interest in finding problems.  Moisture in basements is a source of major problems if left unattended.  Lets find out the condition of this valuable asset of yours and wisely protect your nestegg.

You have your teeth checked annually right?
You have an annual physical right?
Your house?  Schedule an annual inspection (just the major systems, foundation, roof, and attic).


NC Home Inspector #2620, Insured and Bonded, NC General Contractor, Mechanical and Electrical Degrees


I have been described as tenacious and I accept that descriptor. I will be a dog in getting to the bottom of your dwelling, rooting in crawl spaces, on roofs, and all in between. Then, I compile an easy to read report for your records.

somewhere on your website people need to know that you do not do do many cosmetic inspections and that that is between the owner and contractor

Don is very professional. He did not mind me (the buyer) being present at the inspection and answering any questions that I had.

Don is a very knowledgable and intelligent professional. He doesn't mess around,he gets right down to business, checks your place out. If there are problems, he'll find them, point them out to you and tell you why they are there.

We highly recommend Don Miller for your home inspection. Don is very informative and points out the very important aspects home buyers may have concerns about. We had our report with all details the same day. He also explains in detail where crucial shutoffs are located as well as whats code and not up to code. he made this a very simple process for us!
- R.M., April 2015
I really appreciated your willingness to come on such short notice.
- C.S., March 2015
I called one evening and the next day he was at the house doing my water inspection. I would use him again.
- J.R., March 2015
Upon needing a home and well water inspection done on a home we were looking at buying, I did an internet search for home inspectors. Don Miller came up in the search and I began reading about him and the reviews on his site. From the reviews, Mr. Miller was the man I wanted to do the job for us and I am so happy that I picked him. He was able to come out the day I called him and arrived at the home at the scheduled time, actually a bit before the scheduled time. He was very thorough and was very good about showing me pictures and explaining things that needed to be replaced or repaired in the house. He took his time and looked at everything, from rooftop to basement. I am very pleased with his service and would recommend him highly as your home inspector.

Thank you for the fast and easy inspection and the so easy to read report.

Don, you did a great job, I know our realtor, Tom Perry was very impressed with you. I appreciated your knowledge, thoroughness, and calm demeanor. the report was very complete with clear pictures/arrows. All in all, very impressive! I'd highly recommend you. I appreciate all the time you took and not rushing through this. Dave & I decided not to buy the house, wanted to let you know. Lots of little things that could end up bigger. Concern with mold and mildew issue and lack of vapor barrier for 50 yr all added into our tough decision to let go of the house. I enjoyed meeting you, sue puffer .

Mr. Miller inspected my potential condo purchase on August 26, 2013. He was prompt, courteous, thorough, professional and most of all efficient in all respects. I would highly recommend his services for anyone who wishes to have a condo inspection WELL DONE. Sincerely, Sybil B. Groulx
- S.G., August 2013
Don, I appreciate you being so thorough and knowledgeable in your inspection and in relaying the information to myself and my Realtor. I feel more confident regarding my purchase with the information you have provided.
- M.D., August 2013
I appreciate the good quality photos that accompanied your report. However, I did not feel the inspection was complete since the attic was not observed, and other areas as mentioned in your report. I would very much appreciate a full inspection to accompany the quality report you provided on the rest of the property. I appreciated your availability to answer question afterwards. For the high price of an inspection I expect every aspect of the home to be observed at the time of the appointment. Perhaps a call to the occupants prior to the inspection to educate them on your needs to access spaces would prevent an incomplete inspection in the future. Thank you very much for the opportunity to give feedback. Best wishes,
- L.S., August 2013 did a good job as far as I can tell. You were very communicative and kept me informed on all fronts of the inspection, plus a few extra concerns. I thought you would find the rotten wood on the front porch edges. Not all were in that condition and is not a big concern. Will talk to the builder about it and I realize that not everything wrong can be found I would definitely recommend you! Carrie
- C.L., August 2013
Buyers were very pleased with the inspection. Thanks.
- C.G., July 2013
Don, quickly called to schedule the inspection. Although I could not be at the house I was very comfortable with his explanation of the procedures & taking photos. He was very responsibe to my questions via email & even followed up my phone to be sure I understood the email reply.
- R.Y., July 2013
Be careful on ladders
