As local home inspectors in the communities of Virginia Beach, Chesapeake, Norfolk, Suffolk, Portsmouth, Isle of Wight County, Southampton County, Smithfield, and Franklin, we understand the importance of a thorough and accurate home inspection. Our team of experienced inspectors communicate effectively and knowledgeably with our clients, to provide education and avoid causing undue alarm while being open and honest about the home condition.

Exceeds Industry Standards

  • We have performed more than 15,000 home inspections, and are considered one of the top home inspection providers in the areas of Virginia Beach, Chesapeake, Norfolk, Suffolk, Portsmouth, Isle of Wight County, Southampton County, Smithfield, and Franklin.
  • We have been providing professional home inspections of the highest quality since 1997, working with home buyers, home sellers, and real estate professionals.
  • In addition to home inspections we train real estate agents through CEP about home-related topics – that is why real estate agents trust us.
  • We have been involved with more than one hundred of these courses so far, and are frequently sought out by real estate professionals for seminars and training courses.

Additional Inspection Services Available

We offer additional inspection services to clients, and these may be arranged along with a home inspection or scheduled as a separate service. These services include:

  • Asbestos Lab Testing
  • Meth Lab Testing
  • Chinese Drywall Inspections

Each home inspection performed will usually require between two and four hours, and the findings are provided on site once the inspection is finished. A comprehensive report with full details is printed on site, and will include color pictures of any areas that need repair or cause concern. Part of the home inspection process is educating our clients, and we will answer any questions promptly and fully, even after the inspector has left the site. We value and encourage client participation through the entire process.
