Rusty Bateman

Knowledge is the buyer's best defense against the unexpected.  All homes have issues.  Some issues are normal and some are not.  It takes knowledge to find the issues and distinguish one from the other. Emotions run high and can cloud decisions.  Since inspectors are not emotionally attached to the home, they can objectively evaluate the homes condition and provide an unbiased perspective.  Inspectors understand the emotional side of a new home purchase and the importance of keeping issues in perspective while protecting you from unexpected repairs and cost.

Thanks for the timely report and great communication. Of course we have some questions about some of the issues you point out, but they are easy enough to track down when we are at the property. We plan to use you on the next area purchase too. Many Thanks, Tim Reddington

Rusty was very professional; he was a man on a mission! He got busy right away and bustled around the house inspecting every last detail. The final report was written up in a very timely manner and was very thorough. Rusty offered his assistance on any questions I needed answered now and in the future. I would unequivocally recommend Rusty to anyone needing a home inspection.

Very professional, thorough, concise, well documented , objective, home inspection. Timely inspection, on schedule. Report provided within 24 Hrs.

Rusty Bateman was very informative. The report was very helpful for someone who is a visual learner. The detailed images help explain the results/findings. I appreciate his thorough work and detailed responses to the findings. I would use Rusty Bateman again, as well as recommend him to other's looking for an inspector.

Rusty did our inspection and I would recommend him to anyone! He is very thorough, professional and talked to us in way in which we would understand. He talked about the repairs he thought were necessary along with long term care to items for further prevention. We have had 4 inspections done on houses by different companies and this one was by far our best yet!
- D.S., January 2019
We are highly impressed with the attention Rusty gave to our forever home,in fact I have already recommended Bateman's to 2 other potential home buyers. Thank you
- W.W., January 2019
I highly recommend Bateman Home inspections. Doug Cash was prompt, very experienced, friendly, professional and answered any questions I had during the inspection. He even had a pen, clipboard and flashlight waiting for me. Nice, high tech equipment to do the job right. We spent 3 hours going over everything and I feel like every inch of the house was inspected. If you are looking at buying a home, don?t hesitate to give Bateman a call.
- J.T., December 2018
This was an easy, pleasant experience, couldn't have asked for a better buyer's service, while purchasing our 1st home, in the month of Dec I might add. Im a SAHM Mommy to 4 kids under 13, using only pictures im taking to show my husband the "good stuff:, A/C, gutters, basement walls, yard, potential man cave, windows, manufacturing dates), my husband has not been in home in over 2 months, being stuck on a contract job about 6 hours away, that has been extended 2 weeks, multiple times, has of of course made this purchass a bit more complicated, then your everyday home buyin experience ( and thats hard enough) so this easy step in the home buying process was enjoyable, Rusty was polite, thorough and a joy to work with. Sincerely, Kelley Thornton

Rusty is down to earth and highlights every issue, positive or negative, in a clear and precise fashion. Every problem observed is outlined, giving you the confidence and guidance necessary to proceed with purchasing and repairs or upgrade to your home. I am wiser because of this inspection and now know what needs to occur to ensure the safety and life expectancy of the home. Thanks Rusty!
- K.C., November 2018
Rusty was so kind and helpful during my home inspection! He was very knowledgeable and helped me to understand exactly what I was getting myself into. I will definitely be recommending him to any and all home buyers I know.
- V.G., November 2018
Thank you for your time yesterday answering all of my clients questions about this property. It was really cool to see you using the drone!
- T.D., Lynchburg VA, November 2018
Very detailed and informative. Pictures for each item with a very detailed summary that quickly defined if there was an issue or if there was nothing to worry about.
- O.E., October 2018
Rusty did a fantastic job inspecting our new home (to be). His comments along with photos were outstanding and will provide us with the information we need to work with the seller to make sure our new home is safe and to be aware of other areas that we need to take care of. The appointment was scheduled quickly too and we do appreciate that as well. I'd recommend Rusty to others without hesitation!
- R.J., October 2018
Doug Cash was friendly and professional. He explained the process and answered any and all questions. Would highly recommend him!
- S.S., September 2018
I really wanted someone webpage would go through this house carefully as it had been sitting for a few months. He went above what I had hoped for by including important shut off valves and pictures. My previous inspection had not been this good! Highly recommend!
- S.B., September 2018
My husband was very pleased with the inspection you performed. He indicated how in depth the inspection was and commended you for it.
- J.P., null nul, August 2018
Very thorough inspection and excellent report.
- B.S., August 2018
The company as a whole are easy to work with and down-to-earth while remaining professional. My inspector, Doug Cash, was phenomenal. As expected, Doug was thorough during the inspection, taking time to discuss not only the issues he was able to find in the property, but also patient as I asked questions to clarify my understanding or regarding issues I found. In the instances where Doug found significant problems with the property, he requested another inspector to come by so that his assumptions regarding the issue were supported. This point also speaks well of the company; a teamwork which is supportive and not territorial. Once the inspection was completed, Doug, as well as others from the company, gave permission to contact at any point following the inspection if I should need help or have further questions.
- J.C., August 2018
Everyone we dealt with regarding our home inspection and radon testing was wonderful. From Rusty to Linda, and Neal we couldn?t have asked for a better experience. Neal was so helpful through the home inspection and answered all our questions on the spot. Great job by everyone!

We were very impressed from the moment we met Rusty, and immediately felt confident that if there was anything wrong within the house that it would be found. We liked being informed what was going to happen, and felt very comfortable with the process. The report was detailed not only with the information we needed to know for the inspection, but also valuable information to keep for our records. We would not hesitate to recommend or use Rusty again.

Please feel free to use this in your marketing! "Rusty and Linda at Bateman Home Inspections were recommended to us by our realtor, to provide a home inspection when purchasing a home. Not only were they professional and efficient, we appreciated the time Rusty took to answer our questions. The communication was excellent and the report outstanding ... great for a visual person! Would most definitely recommend them to others. In fact, we already have and we're only a couple of weeks out from being in our home!" Lloyd & Amy

Great job Rusty! Thanks for being thorough.
- C.M., May 2017
I was informed as problems and concerns came up. If I have a need for this kind of service again I would call Mr. Bateman to do the job. He answered every question that I had to my understanding and made sure after that I understood his answers. Both was very nice and professional the whole process. I will refer him to anyone that needs a home inspection in the future. The price for the inspection is very good. My inspection lasted for over two hours and I know the job was performed because I followed them around as they worked. I feel a lot better about my purchase, knowing the inspection was done to this level. Great job!
- W.S., April 2017

Rusty was not only the most affordable but was very friendly as well as professional. Being a single mom, he made me feel reassured that he checked every inch of my future home to make sure it was up to par for my family. He gave me sound advise and made me aware of what was "safety" related versus items that I would want to just keep my eye on for future maintenance. I appreciate Rusty taking the time out to break things down to basics for me without insulting my intelligence. He is an A1 inspector! Thanks, Rusty!

Thanks again for your assistance. We were able to close on the home last week and are now looking forward to enjoying this new home. Your comprehensive inspection provided my wife and I with the confidence we needed to move forward in purchasing this home. We have already begun working on some of the issues you discovered and when completed I believe we will have a solid house for years to come. It was a real pleasure working for you and if ever needed please feel free to use us for a reference.
