Looking for a Campobello Home Inspector?

We've got you covered.  As a Campobello home inspector, we're very familiar with the area and the homes, both new and old, that are in the area.  In addition, we've lived in Campobello for more than 20 years.  Campobello is located in northern Spartanburg County, about 3 miles west of I-26 at exit 5.  Highway 176 runs through Campobello, and it's the quickest route to get to Landrum and Inman.  Many of the folks that live in Campobello work in Spartanburg, Greenville, or the surrounding areas. Because of the close proximity of the interstate, it's pretty easy to get to Spartanburg or Asheville fairly quickly.

Our local schools have won statewide recognition and awards for their academic excellence.  Many folks are moving to the area because of schools and the opportunity to own a little more land.

Homes in Campobello are usually built on concrete slabs or crawl spaces foundations, but as a Campobello home inspector, we have seen a few homes built on basement foundations in the area.  There are some newer homes being built in the Campobello area, but there are also plenty of older homes as well.  We have neighbors whose homes were built in 1800s.  The area surrounding town is mostly rural and agricultural land, with plenty of peach orchards and country roads.  Some of that land has been sold off in recent years for residential development.  Houses in Campobello range from mobile homes to multi-millions dollar farms and estates.  Lots of Campobello home inspections are being performed now because the housing market is booming.  There's not many multi-family units in town, and most folks live in 1-2 story single family homes.  The town of Campobello does not have a public waste disposal system, so every home and business has a septic system.  The town of Campobello is small, with just a single traffic light, a couple of restaurants and antique shops, a barber shop and a couple of convenience stores.  In addition, there's an SCDOT maintenance shop located in town.

Most folks who live in Campobello drive to Boiling Springs or Spartanburg to get to the nearest big box store, Walmart, etc...  Regular grocery stores are closer, with a Food Lion in Inman and an Ingles in Landrum, both of which are about 6 miles from downtown Campobello.  Campobello does have a city park that features a baseball field, small playground and basketball court.  The town puts on a Christmas parade every December.  Most folks enjoy living in Campobello because it's a small town with a tight-knit community.

What exactly do we do as a Campobello Home Inspector?

Our job as a Campobello home inspector is to conduct a visual inspection of the components of the home that include the following:

Roof System - including flashings, drainage, chimneys and plumbing stacks
Home Exterior - including porches, decks, retaining walls, stairs and steps, railings, driveways, sidewalks, exterior doors and windows
Structure - including the framing and foundation
Home Interior - including stairways, steps, railing, interior doors, appliances and cabinets
Plumbing System - including supply systems, drain systems, sinks, tubs, showers, fixtures, faucets, hot water heater and vent systems
Electrical System - including service drop, grounding system, receptacles, switches, fixtures, service panels, main disconnects, wiring and overcurrent protection devices
Heating and Cooling System - including fuel identification, age, size of units, location of air handler

When possible, we also like to look in the attic and the crawlspace. This gives us a more complete picture of how the house was constructed.

After our inspection is completed, we issue our report. The report includes details about the home and our findings regarding the components and systems. The report contains tons of information - things like the age of the HVAC system and if it is appropriately sized, the age of the water heater, building materials used, plumbing materials used, electrical component descriptions, etc... Our reports average 20-25 pages, depending on the issues we find, and include color photographs. Our reports are typically issued within 24 hours of completing the inspection and upon receipt of payment.

We conduct a Campobello home inspection from an ethical, objective, unbiased perspective. We don't have a vested interest in the home or the possible pending real estate transaction. Our goal is to give our clients a clear picture of the condition of a home, so they can make a more informed financial decision.

We are often asked if our clients can be present during the inspection process, and the answer is YES! We love showing our clients the details of the home they want to buy. We'll walk you through how to change the furnace filter and show you where the fuse box is. We'll also show you how to shut off the water supply and help determine where the septic tank is located.
