Looking for an Easley Home Inspector?

You're in the right place - we've got you covered.  As an Easley home inspector, we're in that area of the Upstate a fair bit, especially because we like fishing in Lake Saluda.  Easley is a town in the southeast portion of Pickens County.  Highway 123 runs right through Easley, and makes it convenient to get to Greenville or Clemson.  It's also a fairly quick drive to get to I-85, which is also convenient if you're heading to Charlotte or Atlanta.

Easley has seen tremendous growth over the last couple of decades, with plenty of new communities being developed.  The schools have a good reputation and there are plenty of employers in the area or within a short drive, including Prisma Health Baptist Hospital.  Lots of families decided to call Easley home because of its close proximity to Greenville.  Living in Easley gives you the benefits of living in a smaller town, with the amenities of a bigger city just a short drive away.

The real estate market in the area is still booming, and there are plenty of Easley home inspections being performed to keep up with demand.  There are lots of different housing options in Easley.  Some folks prefer to buy an older home in a more established neighborhood.  Others opt for a newer home in a development that features amenities popular with families. These often include pools, playgrounds, clubhouses, walking trails and even small lakes.

As an Easley home inspector, we see homes that are built on crawlspace or concrete slab foundations, and every now and then we come across a  basement foundation in the that area of the Upstate.  Vinyl and brick veneer siding seem to be the most popular options, but you will find hardboard siding on some of the higher end homes.  Houses in Easley range from mobile homes to large, estate-sized homes that sit on acres of land.  Much of the area on the north side of Easley is still rural, and there are some homes in this area that are more than a hundred years old.

There are plenty of activities to do in and around Easley.  Lakes Hartwell, Keowee and Saluda are short drives away and offer plenty of opportunities for boating, fishing and other watersports.  There are several golf courses in the area including Smithfields Country Club and Pickens County Country Club.  Easley also offers a movie theatre and roller skating rink.  In addition, there are plenty of big box stores, shops, grocery stores, restaurants, etc... both downtown and out on Highway 123.  The Doodle Trail is a walking/bike path that runs about 7.5 miles from Easley to Pickens.

What exactly do we do as an Easley Home Inspector?

Our job as an Easley 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 an Easley 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.
