Looking for a Landrum Home Inspector?

You've come to the right place.  As a Landrum home inspector, we're very familiar with that community and area of the Upstate.  In addition, Landrum is just a few miles from our home.  Landrum is located in northern Spartanburg County, just off I-26.  Highways 14 and 176 run through Landrum, making it easy to get places fairly quickly.  Many of the folks that live in Landrum work in Spartanburg, Greenville, or up in Hendersonville or Asheville, while others own businesses in town.  One unique feature of Landrum is that while most of the homes are located in Spartanburg County, quite a few are located within Greenville County.

As a Landrum home inspector, we see houses that are built on concrete slabs, crawl spaces and even basement foundations.  Many of the homes in Landrum feature asphalt shingles and vinyl siding, but we've also seen plenty of brick homes and metal roofs in the area.  There used to be quite a bit of agricultural land in the Landrum area, but some of it has been sold off or developed.  There are still quite a few peach orchards in the area.  Landrum also has a large equestrian community, and there are plenty of horse stables and equestrian estates in close proximity to town.  Lots of Landrum home inspections are being performed right now, because the real estate market is booming and the number of buyers far exceeds the number of sellers. Homes in Landrum range from mobile homes to multi-million dollar estates.  Lake Lanier is located just northwest of town and there are quite a few homes on this fairly small, private, mountain lake.  There are also mountain homes north of town, that often feature walk-out basements and dramatic views.

The Spartanburg County Library System has a nice branch in Landrum.  There are plenty of antique shops and restaurants downtown and just outside of town.  Landrum has a good-sized hardware store, a farm supply store, an Ingles grocery store and a few fast food restaurants and gas stations.  There's also a family practice medical office, several banks and other necessary amenities located in town. The schools in Landrum are in the highly sought-after Spartanburg District 1, which has received statewide recognition for academic excellence.  On Friday nights in the fall, you'll find a good crowd at the high school football game.  The town also puts on a good Halloween festival and Christmas parade.

What exactly do we do as a Landrum Home Inspector?

Our job as a Landrum 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 Landrum 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.
