As the owner of the company, let me start off by making you a BIG Promise. If we inspect your home or condo and you are not 100% satisfied with our inspection – you pay absolutely nothing for the inspection.

In the Home Inspection Business, I’ve seen many fly-by-night Home Inspectors come and go. I feel sorry for the home buyers that are victimized by these unscrupulous operators.

But I’m so confident in our inspections that I’m willing to put my money where my mouth is.

You see, I understand this is an important step in your life. This Guarantee is just one more way to demonstrate my desire and commitment to meet and exceed your expectations. Also, I want to ensure you have an enjoyable real estate experience.

So at Chattanooga Home Inspector, I offer a simple, no weasel words Guarantee. Attend the home inspection, and if for any reason you’re not satisfied with the “Quality” of the home inspection service, tell the inspector before receiving your report and we’ll either make it right, or you don’t pay the home inspection fee!

How Can We Guarantee a Home Inspection?

It’s easy. We find more defects than our competition. The end result is that you save more money. Most contracts allow negotiations with the seller to make repairs or give you credit at closing. So the more defects we find, the more money you save.

We don’t rush. This allows us time to do a thorough inspection of your new home or condo. This also means we charge a little more than most of our competitors.

You don’t want a cheap inspection. A cheap inspection may be the most expensive thing you’ll ever buy, it may cost you thousands of dollars down the road because of missed or overlooked defects.

Cheap home inspectors often know less and do less, which is one reason why they’re cheap.
