Chris, we are very pleased with your inspection! Your thoroughness and promptness of report ar Suggestions: Some other way besides a zoom camera to visually inspect steep roofs such as ours would be beneficial (perhaps a drone?) Photos of all deficient areas if possible would be beneficial. (Reference 4.6 and 5.2 on inspection report)

- L.B., Vanceboro NC, September 2017
We thoroughly enjoyed the inspector that came to inspect a home we were looking to purchase in Kinston. He was very knowledgeable, very friendly, and courteous. I know most inspectors like to be left alone to do their jobs, but our inspector went above and beyond to make sure we understood any and all issues he found. We built a relationship with our inspector Waylan(I believe that's how you spell it). This is the second time I've used this company for an inspection and I don't think I'm going to anyone else.

The job done by Chris Matthews was extremely thorough, but more importantly to explain the details of the inspection in a comprehensive manner was great.

I feel the job done empowers me as a buyer to be informed when it comes to complete the buying process with the seller.
