I appreciate the thorough and skillful approach taken by Zach Weatherford from Bentley Home Inspection Services. I recently contacted Bentley to perform a home inspection on a new residence. The inspector and associate was able to point out a number of defective or unsatisfactory areas that needed to be addressed. I'm very thankful for their quality of service.

These guys did an amazing job with a very thorough inspection and detailed report of their findings... Purchasing a home is one of life’s bigger financial commitments and they helped me have more peace about doing just that. They also have a concierge service that is offered exclusively to inspection customers that looks “full serve” ,which I plan to make use of as well, helping in setting up stuff like initial electrical, water, cable and internet, etc. It’s so good to have a company that truly takes care of their customers. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND you checking these guys out for your home inspection needs (and then some).🇺🇸

The guy was very polite and professional. He kept me in the loop during the entire inspection and was willing to answer any questions I had. I feel very comfortable buying this home because I know he was very thorough. I'll definitely be recommending this company

Bentley's was prompt, friendly, and went the extra mile to make sure we had a comprehensive understanding of the strengths and weaknesses of the property. Everyone with whom we spoke was professional and personable. The report arrived the same evening and was written in accessible language to those who don't work in the building industry and with specific detail to allow us make decisions and request repairs. They made the process so simple and straightforward.

I contacted the company to do an inspection on a house I'm purchasing. Called them on Thursday and they did the inspection on Tuesday; pretty quick turnaround. I had the inspection report in my hand within a few hours of them completing the inspection. The report was very thorough and helped me have a good understanding of the home I intend to purchase. They were very responsive and accommodating. I highly recommend them for home inspections.

Zach and Bentley Home Inspection Services were very professional and thorough in the handling of our prospective home buy in Tennessee. We were buying from out of State and they scheduled the inspection promptly and had the report in our hands within 24 hours. Very much appreciated.

Great experience with Brian from Bentley Home Inspection Services. Brian inspected a home for one of my buyers and the service provided was amazing. I called Brian with a question and though he was about to begin another inspection he answered my call right away. He also gave me a call to go over the report later that day. Will definitely refer more clients to Bentley because of the service I received.

Josh was a pro’s pro! He conducted a thorough inspection and was detailed in his findings. He went out of his way to call and follow up with further information and perspective. Josh gave us the confidence to move forward on a property purchase knowing exactly what we were getting. I couldn’t ask for a better home inspector.
Great experience, very professional! Very thorough and checked everything out effectively. Took time to answer any questions we had. Would highly recommend this company!

I attended the inspection as I wanted to personally observe the inspection. While I was very impressed by the professionalism and completeness of the inspection, I was more impressed by something our inspector, Arland asked me at the inspection. Early on we found the exterior brick could very well have structural issues. He asked me not once, but twice (about 5 minutes apart) if I wanted to continue the with the inspection. Arland wanted to make sure I was comfortable continuing since the issue found could very well be a deal breaker. He stated if we stopped now, the firm would only charge us for a trip charge. The question alone shows Arland and BHIS value customer service over profits. While the inspection didn't go as smoothly as we would have liked (due to issues found with the home) I'll definitely refer others to BHIS..

Arland from Bently Home Inspection Services inspected a house for me from 9:00 AM until 1:08 PM today. I had the report by 4:06 PM. The report was very detailed and included many items I was already concerned about.I also had another inspector from another company review something in the house a week ago. I am stillwaiting for that report. Arland raised the same concern that caused me to request the other inspection.The information in the report from Arland/Bently will be very useful in completing the negotiations for the purchase.

The customer experience from beginning to end was phenomenal! I got the house under contract on a Friday evening and called the following day, a Saturday, to schedule an inspection. The customer service representative was extremely friendly and helpful. I also called back later in the week to add an additional service, which was a seamless process. I met Gerald on-site for the inspection, and he was very personable and knowledgeable. He had an inspection report emailed to me within hours! Every representative of the company set expectations for me on next steps and then delivered on those expectations. Job well done!

I liked their digital report they provide via email. The format and how they go from item to item is well structured. Admittedly I don't have a large frame of reference in regard to home inspection. Though I was for what I know, satisfied with the service.

New homeowner!! Bentley's home inspection service is a must have when buying an house. The service was ordered and completed within the same week. The report was very thorough and detailed. Plenty of pictures were provided that showed multiple angles of the house that I haven't seen. I'm currently in the process of buying a house while I'm out of state. Therefore, I officially never seen the house in person. This report made it super easy to determine what shape the house is actually in and kinda builds a task list of things that need to be done or replaced. Honestly, the service was well worth the money spent!

If you're looking for a through home inspection then you need to work with Bently Home Inspection. They have helped us with 2 homes over the past 5 years and both experiences were positive. On our current home purchase, the news they had to deliver to us was tough, they were so careful to stick to the facts, not over exaggerate and were so kind while delivering such hard news. Top notch!

I was so impressed with the first time I used Bentley Home inspection I am a returning customer! Gerald was at the home right on time as expected, totally prepared to do a thorough exam of the property. During the inspection he asked if there were any items I was particularly concerned with. Living in a different area of the country I am not familiar with things like heat pumps, wood stoves, a couple other items. Gerald took the time to discuss what he would be looking for in particular when looking at these items. Even his report, I just can't say enough positive things about Bentley. wish they had a 10 star rating!

Bently and Associates was a pleasure to work with. In todays market timing is a major factor. Brad (my inspector) was able to come out 2 days after I called and was able to get the report to me the same day. Called at 8:00am and got a person on the phone. He also got on the roof, crawl space, and attic. The report, to my delight, didn’t have any serious problems, however if there were any they would most definitely have been listed. Great doing business with Bently and Associates.
I have used Bentley‘s on several occasions and they have always been fantastic to work with! Specifically Gerald Jones is the best. He’s very knowledgeable and forthright with any and all issues present as well as being friendly, professional and all around great to work with.

Met Danny Tate at a property this morning, he was on time and ready to go. Danny was very knowledgeable and did a great job communicating with me throughout the inspection process. I wouldn’t hesitate to use Bentley Associates in the future, rate them 5 out of 5.

Had an issue with a transaction that could have caused not 1 but 3 different real estate transactions to fall apart, and Zach Weatherford stepped in and saved the day. The moment we came to him with an issue, he himself was out to the property the next day willing to do what was necessary to save our transactions. Zach, you rock! Thank you, Bentley Home Inspections.
