Knoxville home inspector review

Dan was ABSOLUTELY the right choice for our home inspector. I had a business emergency and had to leave before our scheduled appointment and when I explained this to him the night before I would have to leave he made sure to be there the very next morning so that I was able to be present for the inspection. I interviewed several potential inspectors and when it comes down to it, the owner of the business that you speak to on the phone is rarely the person who comes out and does the actual inspection. Most often you’ll get a young employee who may be experienced but will be more likely to cut corners when it comes to getting into some of the dirty/hard to reach places. I own my own business and I know that when I’m on site the quality of work is much higher than when I send an employee with less experience. That’s why I was happy to hear that I’d be meeting “The House Scout“, in person. Dan did a very thorough inspection lasting around 3 hours in which he crawled into many hard to reach places to examine for any potential … our home inspector.

He was extremely knowledgable and professional and emailed me my 24 page detailed inspection report that very night. The report was very well put together and included pictures. With his report, it was easy for us to counter the seller and have those problems fixed before we move in. I will definitely use Dan when I purchase a home again, and I know that if you choose “The House Scout” you’ll be in good hands.
