The service was very good. The only inspectors I would use, very thorough, very professional and any problems he would find it. He came highly recommended by the Realtors in Raleigh. I would definitely be using his services in the future purchases I would be having.

A little confusion while scheduling but that was primarily our fault as we were out of state during most of the process. The inspection report itself was the best I've ever seen. It was thorough, with pictures and explanation and repair recommendations - no fluff. They went back for redress after completion of repairs. The guys were great!

Home inspection part seemed to go fine but not very detailed oriented. The Radon inspection was suspect. He placed the unit in a small closed off room and ran the test during a 2 and a half day storm. The results came back and they were very strange and off the charts. Unfortunately this caused a lot of issues with our potential buyer. We immediately hired a certified Radon inspector which told us that the test was invalid and the inspector was clueless. They said the test should not have been done during a record breaking almost 3 day historic storm and that the inspector did not place the detector in a place which would accurately record radon levels and the unit and software were outdated and the inspector was not certified. The inspector also said that he was redoing a number of test which were done in error by the same inspector. Buyer beware this firm is not a firm which i would recommend.

I thought Steve and his team did an excellent job. They did a full home inspection on a rather large house and did a good job detailing the problems in the report, including pictures. I had lived in the home for the prior 8 months so thought I was pretty familiar with it, but he found many things that I had not paid attention to or was unaware were dangerous. He also did a separate termite and radon inspection. Finally, he recommended very high-quality contractors (which I used) to repair the items and I was very pleased with that.

Bruce inspected our home just before it was drywalled. He is very thorough and found some moldy wood, some areas that weren't put together completely, a large hole for electrical in our concrete in our kitchen. It should have been a small hole and we made sure the contractors fixed it before they put the island on top of it. Our fireplace vent was not put in properly, as lay people, we wouldn't have known. During the final inspection, Bruce found several issues including a hole in the foundation that wasn't readily visible unless you got down on the ground, a crack in the foundation, several non-working outlets, in all he found about 20 things to fix. He's friendly, explains everything to you, answers all your questions and it's obvious he's an expert. He also did a radon test in our home. Bruce is very easy to work with, knows his stuff, is on time and again very thorough. We highly recommend him! We have a much better home because we had the issues addressed by our contractors thanks to Bruce! Margie & Chris

Steve conducted a thorough inspection of the house and identified a number of items that were needing repair or were not compliant with building codes. He explained his findings in detail and took time to answer all our questions. We are happy with the work he performed and were glad he identified the repair items that had been missed by the builder and builder's inspections. This ensured the items were added to the punch list before home closing and avoided a discussion/negotiation with the builder after closing to try and get the repairs completed!

Steve Smallman showed up at the set time of the appointment and inspected the entire home including the roof, crawl space, exterior elevations and all interior rooms. Elecrical, plumbing and HVAC were also checked. Steve provided a detailed and well-written report with good photos. Concerns were found and noted with recommended repair methods included. In addition to this inspection, Steve has performed two prior inspections for me as well as one for my daughter and this one for my son. All were prefessionally completed. I would recommend Steve Smallman for home inspections if you want a thorough inspection with detailed reporting.
