New construction

When building or buying new, the last thing a builder wants is a Real Estate INSPECTOR reviewing or inspecting their work. Unless you know construction & code requirements well, hire a licensed profession to be your eyes on the project before it is too late! Also knowing your home inspector is a licensed Builder gives you that extra experience you want!

Roof damage, Inspection damages, dry rot repairs

Some roofing companies will roof right over this type of damage without repairing damaged wood. It often takes too much of their time to fix.  You have to identify and fix these repairs as  needed. Homeowners beware, hire a License SC Inspector to inspect their work!
