Tim agreed to do my home inspection on very short notice, and did a very detailed analysis of my soon-to-be beach home. His explanations were detailed, complete with color pictures and markups showing me exactly where problems were located. He has many years of experience, which was evident in the inspection report. I have no reservations recommending Tim to anyone.

- G.L., Chesapeake NC, March 2013
As I was leaving you and the buyer, to inspect the home on Friday...I met the Appriaser, who was pulling into the Driveway and he asked "Why are you doing a Home Inspection on new construction????"...I said, I will ALWAYS recommend a Home Inspection! He told me it was a HUGE waste of my Clients money, and shook his head.......I would say, the items that you found are WELL worth the $325.00.....1) for the Buyers peace of mind...and 2) the items that you found, could cost him THOUSANDS, after years and no outward signs of trouble.
- L.B., Moyock NC, August 2012
Tim, thanks for the inspection!!! I can tell you take your work seriously. GOOD JOB!!!! You have my recommendation for any perspective home buyer!!
- S.S., Elizabeh City NC, August 2012

Tim, thankyou for posting my foundation pictures. Now is there any way I can know from them where the termites are. According to Carr they are just in one place...near the pipe that was leaking.

Tim Arn is top notch! He will NOT tell you what you WANT to hear...he doesn't care who you are...he is unimpressed by what you do for a living..he is there to do his job and he does it with unmatched skill and diligence. He has been known to uncover many things that other inspectors have deemed "unable to inspect due to obstruction".....Mr. Arn is a true Inspector and doesn't mind getting dirty in the process. I will always recommend his Company, the staff are courteous, thoughtful and professional.
- L.B., Moyock NC, February 2010
