Home Inspection Athens, 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 Athens

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.

I was very impressed with the detail and time taken with the inspection. It went above and beyond my expectations and then some. It's very obvious the inspector, Timothy, is very knowledgeable just from the report I received even having never met him in person. If I ever needed another inspection within their range they would be my first call.

I had Tim as my inspector for a house in Kingsport. He was professional and went over every detail. I highly recommend this company for home inspections, especially if you’re a first time buyer.

Everything from the initial phone call, to working with Anita on scheduling and my specific needs, to the day of inspection where Zach did an amazing and thorough job, was top tier service. I will be calling Bentley for all my future inspection needs in the area. Couldn't be any more impressed with everyone I spoke with and the experience I had working with Bentley home inspection.
I had a pre-drywall inspection on a new construction completed by Nic. Very knowledgeable guy with a sharp eye. He found some minor things that needed to be addressed and explained some of the codes and requirements that were missed by the builders. The inspection gave me peace of mind for my new home.

Very satisfied with the inspection, it’s hard to find honest people these days. Without the inspection we woulda fell into a money trap. I will be using you again!! Thank you
Bentley has been great to work with. All communication, quick and efficient. Nic, the inspector, was very thorough. I had a few questions after I read the report and left an email for him to call me. He got back to me by the end of the day and answered all my questions. HIGHLY recommend Bentley Home Inspection Services
