Chief Inspector Daryl Palubiak has been building, inspecting and maintaining homes in the Carolinas since 1986.  That means you're getting somomeone with years of experience in all phases of home building and repair -- an inspector who knows homes inside and out!

We have developed a reputation for thorough and accurate reporting and an easy to read Inspection report filled with pictures and descriptions of defect items, as other information about the home, such as utility shutoffs, maintenance items you will want to address to keep their home in good order and safety items like expired smoke alarms and missing CO detectors.

We are one of the few inspection companies in the area that actually walk most every roof. As a licensed roofing contractor, owner/inspector Daryl knows what to look for, and the importance of making sure the roof  -- one of the most costly systems of a home -- is sound and properly installed.  We are able to do this with special equipment and a second person onsite to hold the reason many inspectors don't get on the roof.

Inspector Travis has years in construction trades prior to beginning his inspection career. With an eye for detail, advanced training on inspection techniques/non-destructive inspection and and a caring personality, Travis is a great addition to our team.

To help the business run smoothly,Carrie efficiently takes care of inspection requests, pricing and scheduling.  Kelly handles management of the business, report review and the relationship building that is the core of our business.  Our Team Inspecting approach means most appointments are attended by two inspectors or an inspector and an assistant.  Utilizing high tech inspection software allows us to complete much of the report on site, which can be reviewed with the client at the end of the inspection.  

In addition to home inspections for home buyers, we provide the following additional inspections:

Sellers Pre-Listing Inspections -
for homeowners prior to listing their home for sale. A great way to have an experienced inspection professional ltake a fresh look at your home so you can take care of small things you may have overlooked, as well as alert you to any larger items that you may be unaware of. These are usually found on the roof and in attics and crawlspaces. Finding out about any such issues early in the process means you can address them at your discretion and within your schedule, not under the contraints of a buyers Repair Addendum. While a buyers inspection will still likely find some defects to include in their report, a Pre-Listing Inspection typically makes you aware of more significant items, taking away alot of the stress/uncertaintly of the Buyers Inspection. 

Phase Inspections - we'll check the work being done on your home AS IT IS BUILT, rather than finding out about problems after it's too late.

Contractor Inspections - If you're not sure what you're looking at, let us check up on your contractor during any work / remodels.

Radon Testing - We are certified Radon Inspectors, and utilize the most current technology, with the Sun Nucler Continous Radon Monitor. If your home has Radon, it's not a huge expense to correct the ventilation and bring indoor Radon levels to acceptable levels.  In York County, SC, we are a Level 2 (out of 3 levels) as established by the EPA.  Testing is the only way to know if you are living with dangerous levels of radon in your home. Visit our website for more information about our services and homeowner/homebuyer issues, including Everything You Need to Know about Radon

Maintenance Inspections -  This is an important inspection that we reommend to most clients.  Here's why:  Most people don't check for potential problems with their home. But those 'little things' that would be caught in a maintenance inspection, left unattended to, can become major issues that can be costly to repair.  If you aren't on your roof, in your attic and basement/crawlspace, walking around the interior and exterior looking for signs of 'little things' -- chances are you will have things developing. And by the time that little hole on the roof becomes noticeable downstairs in the dining room, chances are - you've got a major repair on your hands.  We recommend maintenance inspections every 2 years for most homes.

Water Testing - If you use well water, and have not had your water tested in the past 5 years, do yourself and your family a favor by finding out what you're drinking.    Again, the analysis is a small expense that can save big expenses later to your plumbing system and your health. We offer 3 different levels of testing, from a basic screening to a full analysis of your water, covering  more than 100 components. 

Pest Inspections - Pest inspections will be scheduled with a licensed Pest Control Operator (PCO) - required by the state to write a CL100/WDIR Report /Termite Letter).  While some companies have technicians certified as Technicians, who work under another company's license, we follow the state's code that you must do majority of your business in Pest Management in order to by a PCO.  While some of the inspections are duplicated by home and pest inspector, we are full time home inspectors and prefer to have full time PCO's handle the pest inspection. We work with several exceptional PCO's that provide a discounted rate when performing a Pest Inspection with Eye Spy and we schedule their visit at the same time as our home inspection when possible.

Mold Testing - We are equippped to take air or tape samples in a home for lab analysis.

KS: Thank you so much for your comments and feedback. Re: your range hood: many (if not most) vents in this area are now "recirculate" type, particularly those in combination with a microwave, as yours is. Your inspection report notes the Range Hood as "non-vented/recirculate". We are sorry if there was any confusion surrounding this issue. Best wishes in your new home. EyeSpy

Report is professionally done in a timely manner. Pictures depict findings so you see any problem areas. One item was missed not only by you but the rest of us, there is no exhaust for the stove. Apparently when the previous homeowner remodeled the kitchen, no outside exhaust was installed. There is a microwave above the stove but no exhaust.
