Eskine Betts was extremely professional and an excellent communicator. On site, he described to us very clearly the major issues with the house, prioritizing for us which items need immediate correction and which are longer term concerns to consider. We were also very pleased with the thoroughness, clarity and timeliness of the written inspection report Erskine produced. The photos and drawings he included will be especially helpful in communicating issues with the seller and with professionals we will be asking to provide repair estimates. Nice work!

He not only saved us from having to pay for these needed repairs ourselves, but he found some issues that, if they had been missed, could have led to serious structural problems. My wife and I are very glad that Mr. Betts was our home inspector.
Beyond the home inspection, Mr. Betts has been a huge help. We are moving to NC from CO, and with the differences in climate and critters we had several questions about the best way to protect our home, which he answered. He is prompt in responding, professional, and knowledgeable. I recommend him without reservation to anyone needing a home inspection.

Bottom line, I recommend him highly.
