Inspection Services

You will get a high-quality home inspection backed by experience and care.

Whether you are buying, selling or maintaining your home, NC Home Inspection provides professional and quality service from the moment you call us. Our licensed home inspectors will walk through your home with you and teach you as much as you want to learn. We strictly follow the Standards of Practice for home inspectors established by the North Carolina Home Inspection Licensing Board (NCHILB).

After we walk through the home together, we will explain the general condition of the home and systems with you and your agent. We will talk through any major issues that need to be addressed sooner rather than later. We will also mention the items that you will want to keep an eye on for deferred maintenance. All of this will be detailed in our easy-to-read Spectora report, which will be delivered in HTML and/or PDF format. From that report, you will be able to see the items we discussed, with images for reference.

What's Included in a Home Inspection

Residential Inspections

If you’re planning on purchasing a home, then hiring a home inspector could save you thousands of dollars. It will also help you understand the property you want to buy and the possible defects.

A home inspection can improve your confidence as a buyer or a real estate agent.

Radon Testing

Radon is the 2nd leading cause of lung cancer in the US. Make sure you and your family are protected by getting your property inspected.​

New Home Inspections

Newly constructed homes need an objective third-party to inspect. We have a keen eye for anything that could compromise a new home’s lifetime or safety.

Pre-Drywall Inspections

It becomes increasingly difficult to inspect these important parts of your home when the drywall is installed, which means it’s imperative to get a preemptive inspection.

Pest Inspections

Getting a wood destroying insect inspection will help you determine if there are pests in your home, and what the next steps will be.

Septic Inspections

Having your septic tank inspected can save you thousands of dollars from major septic repairs if issues are not caught early on.
