My experience working with House Masters was a very positive one. From the Representative that answered the phone and took my request to the Inspector that carried out the home inspection. I found them both to be very professional and easy to work with. The inspector was very thorough and willing to answer and explain any questions that I had. House Masters came highly recommended by other Agents in my office and now I see why.

– Larry C.-Client
Davidson, NC

We had Chris do a previous inspection for a house we were looking to buy. Based on his findings, we decided we could not afford to proceed with the purchase. We requested to have Chris do the inspection for this house as we trusted and respected his findings. Chris took the time to walk us thru the photos and why they were taken and explained to us the rating system and why he gave the scores he did. He did a very thorough job and he, and the company, will be recommended to anyone needing an inspection.

– Jean G-Agent
Concord, NC

Chris Craparo is great!!! This is a new construction and friends of my buyer were discouraging him from using an inspector. Chris found several items in the crawl space and what would have been a major issue with grading, that could have cost my clients plenty if it wasn't found beforehand. Chris has goes above and beyond to make sure the client understands the home and how things function. I feel more than comfortable with suggestions and concerns he raises.

– Avery N.

Chris did an excellent, detailed job. He explained everything and answered all my questions. He took the time to look at things that aren't required of him; like the fence and shed; and even tightened up loose outlet covers as he went along. HouseMasters provided a thorough, easy to read report accessible online. The discounts from their partners for things like home warranty, etc. are nice too.
