Looking for a Greenville County Home Inspector??

We've got you covered.  As a Greenville County home inspector, we've spent a lot of time in that area.  The county itself covers a wide swath of land that includes mountainous areas in the far north and the piedmont area to the south.  

Greenville county features a good school system, plenty of outdoor recreation options, and tons of large employers, like Prisma Health, GSP airport, GE, Michelin, etc... Lots of Greenville county home inspections are being conducted because the real estate market is booming.  There are tons of new homes being built all over the county, but lots of people are buying older homes in more established neighborhoods as well.  Many people choose to live out in the county because of the lower taxes and opportunity to own more land. 

As a Greenville County home inspector, we find basement and crawlspace foundations are typically more common in the northern part of the county, while slab homes are often found in the southern area.  Greenville county is conveniently located between Charlotte, NC and Atlanta, GA on I-85, with  Asheville, NC being fairly close by.  From the central part of Greenville County, you can drive to the beach in 3 hours or head the opposite direction and find yourself in the Smokey Mountains in about 90 minutes.

Greenville county is home to several colleges and universities like Greenville Tech, North Greenville and Furman.  It's also home to lots of lakes like Cunningham, Saluda and Robinson to name just a couple.  If riding bikes or jogging is more your thing, check out the Swamp Rabbit trail.  If you want a chance to see a black bear, head north past highway 11 to the Caesars Head recreation area.  If you like shops and restaurants, head to downtown Greenville, downtown Traveler's Rest or downtown Greer.  There are tons of golf courses in Greenville county, from Thornblade to Pebble Creek to the Greens at Verdae to the Links of Tryon, just to name a few.  A relaxing afternoon can be had wandering around Paris Mountain or checking out the Reedy River Falls.  Greenville is home to a minor league baseball team and a minor league hockey team.

As a Greenville County home inspector, we look at houses ranging from mobile homes to multi-million dollar properties and estates.  There are some very old homes in Greenville county that were built in the 1800s.  In addition, there's still some old farms with barns in the area, although quite a bit of the once rural areas have been sold off and turned into residential and commercial developments.

What exactly do we do as a Greenville County Home Inspector?

Our job as a Greenville County 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 Greenville County 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.
