Terry was informative, thorough, and patient throughout a long inspection. I feel like I have a clear list of what I will need to to repair and maintain my home, rather than just waiting until something breaks.

incredibly thorough....expensive but worth it saved me a substantial headache by exposing the hidden defects in a home recently that I was on the final day of DD....An overall good guy who knows his stuff

Terry was a fantastic inspector - he was thorough, explained everything well, and was patient with first-time home buyers like us. He performed two inspections - the first house would have been quite challenging for us to fix, and Terry carefully outlined every problem we would encounter in a neutral but clear way. The second went much better, but Terry was just as thorough - we are keeping his inspection as a “checklist” of sorts to keep on top of home repairs. We couldn’t have asked for a better inspector. Highly recommended!

The best inspector hands down, I would not buy any property without Terry looking at it first, thank you for being so good at what you do
- J.S., December 2021
Terry is a delight! I never knew that spending several hours walking around a home and watching someone work could be so enjoyable. He was very open, easy to talk to, clearly loves his job, and is very knowledgeable. I learned so much! I would absolutely recommend Terry to anyone who is looking for an inspector.

Terry’s inspection reports are incredibly professional and detailed. His extensive knowledge of the home building trade is apparent every step of the way. When we purchased a newly-constructed housing unit, the home inspection gave us great comfort that everything was built to high standards and nothing was overlooked.
- J.P., Atlanta GA, May 2021
Terry was fantastic. He did a very through inspection, walked me through what he found, answered all of my questions, and provided his inspection report quickly. I highly, highly recommend working with Terry. I will be using him again in the future.
- D.R., September 2020
Terry was all over it! Very willing to educate us and listen to all of our questions. Very thorough inspection. Highly recommended.
- L.P., July 2020
Terry was fantastic to work with. He was thorough, informative, great with any and all questions. He's at the very top of our list of people we would contact again not just for an inspection, but for any suggestions about maintenance or repairs in our home. Thanks, Terry!
- R.C., July 2020
Great details and very thorough! This inspection helped save us money on the offer so we could take care of a foundation problem and roofing. The overall details of the report with many photos helped us to put a good plan in place so we can be sure our home is sealed up and in great working order. This is my second time using this service and again they have delivered the best in class service to allow us to feel comfortable making the purchase of our new home. Terry is also great at follow up and helped us to get estimates from reliable contractors. Thanks so much for the report and recommendations! We appreciate the details of this report.
- C.D., Atlanta GA, May 2020
Mr. Roberts was extremely professional. knowledgeable, transparent and helpful. He was a pleasure to work with and took the time to consider the specific issues of my home.
- S.O., April 2020
Terry was very thorough and took the time to explain his concerns in detail to us during our inspection. His report was extensive but clear and easy to understand. Terry even helped us follow up on some concerns after the inspection. We would highly recommend Terry for home inspection services!

Terry, You were so thorough and explained situations and answered questions. Thank you for the time you spent with us and your expertise.
- S.T., June 2019
What a fantastic person and what a report! Terry did not rush through the inspection and sincerely wanted to make sure I understood everything he pointed out to me, even though, as he promised it was covered in his report. I have paid for two inspections on other homes, years ago. Either the reporting requirements have changed or Terry is just very thorough. In any case, I was very impressed and completely satisfied with Terry from start to finish.
- S.H., December 2018
Thank you so much for your patience and expertise! As a first-time home buyer, I had no idea what I was getting myself into, but I walked away feeling knowledgeable and like I had a good understanding of my new home's issues.
- C.S., Atlanta GA, December 2018
Terry is very experienced, thorough, and skilled. He brings an attention to detail and years of expertise to the inspection process. We really enjoyed working with him through our home purchase process.
- M.A., December 2018
Terry was incredibly thorough in inspecting our home and very thoughtful with his explanations. He was very patient in explaining what everything meant while not pulling any punches on what had been done and needed to be done to the home. I would recommend Terry for any inspection, especially for first time home buyers like ourselves. I would also highly recommend him for older homes with "quirks" that may freak out an inspector used to newer construction. That was how we found out about him to begin with.
- T.S., November 2018
This is by far the most thorough, comprehensive and detailed report I have ever had on any home I have purchased or have sold. In addition to the detailed report, Terry made sure he explained everything he was pointing out to me, and he was open to any questions I might have. He is also very friendly and easy to talk with. All in all, I could not imagine a better professional for my home inspection!
- S.S., October 2018
Terry is very knowledgeable, thorough and helpful!
- S.R., October 2018
Terry has done 4 inspections for me and is very detail and honest. A wonderful person to deal with and I wouldn't use anyone else for the job.
- M.C., September 2018
Terry did an amazing job. He was very thorough and the inspection report sent was very detailed. He took the time to explain all issues with the property and as a first time home buyer this was extremely helpful
- E.S., September 2018
your the man!
- K.D., July 2018
Terry you are extremely thorough. My client appreciated all the major things you pointed out that she was concerned with and you made her feel at ease which is important when this is one of the biggest purchase she will make. Thanks Terry. I will use you every time I can.
- K.D., Decatur GA, July 2018
We went through the entire inspection with Terry on site - and we recommend *anyone* using him in the future do the same. His knowledge is invaluable, and he'll answer any and all questions as you go.
- D.B., June 2018
Thank you for your thorough inspection and making yourself available to discuss the results! My client and I appreciate you.
- A.W., Atlanta GA, May 2018
I'm a high-volumn realtor, and encounter many inspectors on a regular basis. Terry Roberts is by far the most thorough of them all! His knowledge of all facets of a structure, plus ability to help homebuyers work through obstacles is so valuable. Highly recommend Terry to anyone looking to make a home purchase.
- C.D., May 2018
Terry is thorough, knowledgeable, and (most importantly) a natural teacher and explainer. I know exactly what we are getting into with this house (our first) and know what needs to be done! Highly, HIGHLY recommended.
- J.H., May 2018
Thank you for the VERY thorough report. Reality check at its finest!
- T.P., March 2018
Terry was thorough and diligent. He walked through each step of the inspection report, and went out of his way to answer all of my questions. I would recommend his services without hesitation.
