Buying a house is a longterm financial commitment that should not be taken lightly. Therefore, you need experienced and friendly professionals to complete your home inspection. Michael Moran was just that. He was not only friendly and welcoming but thorough and knowledgeable of the inspection process as he left no stones unturned.

I would recommend anyone to contact Michael Moran at Banister to Beam before purchasing their next home.

Mr. Milk Moran was excellent. He was very detailed from the roof to foundation of the house. Every Conner he Found in details. He make the buyer feel very comfortable before buying make sure everything on point. He was very fast and excellent service. I bought a house one before but the inspector I got didn’t do half of job.

Good job
- K.N., November 2019
Very thorough work, Thanks MIchael!
- J.C., August 2019
Mr. Moran was extremely thorough and walked me through all of the aspects of the home inspection process. While he explained that the actual report would be in greater detail, which it was, he took the time to actually show me the major and minor issues with the property. He didn't push any other businesses or companies that would repair or fix things - his purpose was to make sure I was informed and educated on all matters. I really appreciated that considering many of these factors play into the health and safety of myself and my family. Considering this is the first time I have done this process, he made certain that any questions I had were addressed and, at times, broke things down into layman terms so that I could understand the full circumstances of the situation. Lastly, I had questions arise after we had parted ways a few days later, and Michael was very swift in getting me the answers I needed, alongside explaining what qualities I should consider in other contractors, agents, etc. I would and will recommend him to others who are in need of a home inspection.
- J.S., August 2019
You were very personable and thorough. We appreciated your insight and candor. I will reach out to you in the near future to get further recommendations.
- S.R., August 2019
Michael is very knowledgeable, thorough, timely, personable and takes the time to explain his findings to my clients. The software he uses to send the reports make it very easy to create a repair list that can easily be saved as a pdf or emailed directly from his website to contractors in order to get estimates.
- L.P., July 2019
Mike was very thorough in his inspection of our property. We are happy that Mike was recommended to us. He took time to explain in detail his findings, and answered our questions. We highly recommend Mike to anyone needing an inspector. Thanks Mike.
- K.B., July 2019
Michael was professional, thorough, and direct. He had a good conversation with us to explain what was in the report before he left. Would recommend to anyone.

- K.P., January 2018
Mike is very thorough in his inspection. He is also very willing to inform the client of what really needs to be repaired vs. what should be repaired vs. what is just an FYI.

Mr. Moran is a true professional. Very thorough, informative, and helpful. I would recommend him to anyone needing his service.
- J.B., Greensboro NC, April 2017
Mike is what I like in a Home inspector, thorough, tells it like it is, good suggestions and makes you realize that what he finds good or bad is to protect you going forward, not to scare you or convince you one way or the other. He also has built homes and knows construction as well as electrical and pluming which is a plus as some inspectors have never really been involved in day to day building issues and how to remedy. He was great.
- J.W., March 2017
I have purchased multiple homes in Greensboro and have used Mike each time. He's the consummate professional and I can't imagine using anyone else for this job.

But you made that process easier. After the inspection I feel I have all the information I need about the property. You were great to work with & have my recommendation for anyone who is need of a home inspection! W. DeBrew
- , July 2016
Michael was very helpful. Although many of the faults were obvious, he was able to point out things that we had overlooked. His knowledge of the local codes and building requirements was especially helpful since we are from another state and were unfamiliar with NC codes. The inspection report was delivered very promptly and Michael's pictures and commentary will serve as a lasting reminder of where we started on what will be a long process to bring this property back to an inhabitable living space.
