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.

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

I appreciate the thorough inspection, your staff is wonderful, very friendly and knowledgeable. This is the first home that I have ever purchased and Bateman Inspections made the process of setting my inspection appointment easy, not stressful. I love the fact that they provide you with a log in to view/print your summary and all details. I will definitely recommend Bateman and will be a returning customer should I have needs for this type of service!! Carolyn B.; Lynchburg/Madison Heights

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!

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!

Thank you for your wonderful service! We appreciate your ease of scheduling appointments and the detailed report you provided us for each home you inspected for us. I will make sure to recommend you to any of my friends buying home.

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.
