Home Inspection Kingsport, TN

What is a Home Inspection?

A home inspection is a professional evaluation of the condition of a house. It determines the home’s suitability for purchase or rental purposes. Home inspections are integral to real estate transactions all over the US. Inspections prevent fraudulent activities, safeguard the buyer’s money, and help a seller get a fair price for what his property is worth.

During a home inspection, an inspector looks at various aspects of the house; these include the structural and functional components. The inspector will look at the home’s structural integrity, safety, heating and cooling systems, electrical wiring, plumbing and drainage systems, roofing materials, foundation and basement conditions, and exterior walls and windows. He will also inspect appliances like stoves and refrigerators for safety and to ensure they function properly.

A home inspection typically takes two hours to complete, but this time can vary and is affected by location, age, and house size. The home inspector presents the homeowner with a detailed report at the end of the inspection. These reports include photos with notes on what he or she has found during their inspection.

About Our Home Inspections in Kingsport

Our inspections give you much more than just peace of mind. You actually get to learn about basic systems of the home, how they work, what condition they are in, and what future maintenance is necessary. In addition to a thorough and detailed inspection of the home (structure, foundation, exterior, plumbing, heating, cooling, electrical, interiors, garage, attic, roofing, grounds, and much more), we also include an infrared scan. This allows us to more accurately inspect the heating and cooling system as well as find hidden moisture or insufficient insulation inside walls. The digital report with color photos is delivered by email within 24 hours, and can be postmarked for next day mail.

My inspector was Joshua. He was terrific. He was polite, professional, knowledgable and thorough. He took the time to walk me through his findings and explain cause and effect. I would recommend this gentleman and his company to anyone! Thank you for a great experience!

Our inspector, Shannon Brewer, was top notch! He was super helpful through the entire process, very professional, and explained everything so thoroughly. He was also very responsive to any questions we had even after the inspection took place. We were lucky to have Shannon help us through this first-home buying experience for us. Highly recommend!

Very Detailed reports and when I called to speak with Danny late on a Saturday he was not available but he did call me Sunday around noon and answered all my questions and concerns. Danny was very knowledgeable and spent a good amount of time with me, making sure I understood what he was saying. Thank You
Scott was very professional and educational. He took his time to explain things to me that I didn't understand. He was thorough and had to go on a scavenger hunt for my furnace as I didn't know where it was. He was fantastic and I highly recommend Bentley Home Inspection Services.

Bentley Home Inspection is phenomenal! Our inspector Brad Bartlett was quick with our report but was extremely detailed and let us know every single thing that needed to be repaired at our new home, all the way down to the electrical outlets! His report was thorough and gave us peace of mind when buying our new home! I 100000% recommend using them for all your inspections!

The inspector that came out and looked at the home I was anticipating on purchasing was very thorough told me that things that needed attention didn't beat around the bush really tried to help me out being a first time home buyer. Luckily by talking with him and doing a little thinking I ended up not getting the house because the owners refused to work with me to fix an out-of-date HVAC unit and many other things. So from the bottom of my heart I truly do thank you for being thorough. I've decided now to buy a brand new house.

Bentley Home Inspections was recommended by our realtor, Joe Young.Josh Yauney arrived on time was very professional and extremely thorough. He immediately started work and did not miss any areas of the house. He spent time educating us about items/areas to monitor. We received a detailed report the same day, with photos and descriptions of all areas. We also requested a termite inspection and we received that report in detail also. We have hired home inspectors before, but never had faster service or a more complete inspection. We highly recommend Bentley Home Inspections.

We sent the original inspection request at 8:35pm on 9/7. One week later, our inspection is completed and report is in hand. From start to finish our experience has been exceptional. Josh walked us through our report at 9pm on his way home. He was extremely thorough, knowledgeable and helpful. In a time when customer service has become nearly nonexistent Bentley Home Inspections is setting a new standard. Many Thanks!!!
