Looking for a Greenville Home Inspector??

You've come to the right place - we've got you covered.  As a  Greenville home inspector, we spend a good portion of our time in that part of the Upstate.  Greenville is routinely named a top 10 city in the country and it's a great place to retire or raise a family.  There's tons to do downtown, with theatres, the arena, West End Field, hundreds of restaurants and shops and bars.  There are several street festivals every year in the downtown area, in addition to the farmer's market.  In addition, there are lots of options for living downtown in a condo or loft or apartment.  Greenville also features several modern hotels.

Greenville is conveniently located between Charlotte, NC and Atlanta, GA, right on I-85.  The mountains to the north are a short 30 minute drive.  And thanks to I-385, you can drive to Columbia in about 90 minutes.  There's a decent sized commercial airport (GSP) a few miles up I-85.

There's been a ton of new housing and commercial development in the Greenville area over the last couple of decades, which means lots of Greenville home inspections.  At one point in the late 90s, 5 new families were moving into Greenville every day.  The Greenville School district is one of the largest in the state, and has more than 70,000 students.  The Greenville area also features plenty of older homes in established neighborhoods in all parts of the city.  Some of these stately homes are over one hundred years old.

As a Greenville home inspector, we look at houses that range from mobile homes to multi-million dollar properties and estates.  Some are multi-unit structures, but most are single family homes.  Greenville features a wide range of styles of homes, from stucco to brick to vinyl siding.  Most homes are one or two stories, but there are some 3 story homes in the area as well.  Greenville homes can be built on crawlspace, slab or basement foundations.

Prisma Health is a large employer in Greenville, along with financial institutions, ad agencies, aerospace companies, GE, Michelin, etc...  There's plenty of parks in the Greenville area, and Reedy River Falls is usually quite busy on a nice weekend.  If outdoor recreation is your thing, there are tons of nearby lakes and rivers to explore, along with the Swamp Rabbit Trail, numerous golf courses and Paris Mountain.  If you're more of an indoor person, there are numerous theatres, a comedy club, art galleries, concert halls, dance clubs, museums and other entertainment venues.

What exactly do we do as a Greenville Home Inspector?

Our job as a Greenville 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 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.

If you need a Greenville home inspector, please give us a call - we'd love to help you learn more about the house you want to buy.
