Daryl Palubiak & Kelly Macaluso

Inspector Daryl has been building, inspecting and mainting homes in SC since 1986.  That means you're not getting someone who decided that being an inspector sounded interesting and took a 60 hour course.  Daryls' years of experience in all phases of home building and repair means you're getting an inspector who knows homes inside and out!

While we appreciate referrals from agents, most of our business comes directly from homeowners and home buyers.  We think this is a good thing.   We have always been very clear about who we are working for. Our customer is the homeowner or homebuyer. Not an agent, not a lender, and not a contractor .. only the person who hired us to give them information.

Not only do we give a full report of the condition of the home, but we take the extra step of providing valuable information that our clients frequently tell others about.  Things like where the water shut off is, where GFCI outlets reset if not in the same room, maintenance items that they 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 ladder...one reason many inspectors don't get on the roof.

To help the business run smoothly, Kelly handles all scheduling, coordinating with realtors and the reporting. 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 homeowners prior to listing their home for sale (great way to have anything repaired that is likely to come up on an inspection done by a prospective buyer!) and home buyers, we provide the following additional inspections:

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 Inspections - 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 www.EyeSpyCarolina.com/radon.html
 

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.

 

We are Licensed NC and SC Home Inspectors, SC Specialty Contractor/Roofer, as well as bonded and insured.. because we think that's the right way to do business.  We would be happy to answer any questions about our Home Inspection services. We're Here When You Need Us!

Daryl was not only thorough with the home inspection he went above his required duties. He graciously measured every room for me since I mentioned I wanted to install hardwood. The old adage you get what you pay for holds true. Aside from the required items he inspected he also gave me guidance on maintenance of my home being that I am a new home buyer. Thank you to both you and Kelly for all you have done.

- G.B., July 2013
Daryl did a very good job in identifying all problems with my home and giving me the knowledge to fix them. He also did the inspection for less than any other company i could find. I have already recommended him to friends and will continue to do so!
- M.A., April 2013
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

Thank you so much for inspecting our home! We were amazed at how we were able to get an appointment so fast, you came right out and it Didn"t take you much time at all to have the inspection report right back to us! Thank you again!!
- W.L., Rock HIll SC, March 2013
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.
- K.S., March 2013
