Stuart Malamut was excellent. I met him at the property to attend the inspection. He engaged me throughout the inspection, educated me on the nuances he found, and physically showed me what he found to bring clarity to exactly what he was referring to in his report. He was extremely professional, made me feel confident in his ability to provide me the best inspection to make an educated decision on the property. Butch Upton was fantastic. Being a certified stucco inspector, he arranged to inspect the stucco accents on the house to ensure there were no signs of concern. I met him at the property as well, he took his time to explain what he was looking for and why. He pointed out a few corrections he felt was required to tighten things up. He was also extremely professional and gave me confidence in his ability to look out for my best interest. The quick turnaround on the inspection reports were appreciated. Both of your professionals are assets to your company and you should be proud to have them represent your business.

– Andrew A
Greer SC

This was my and my husband's first home inspection experience, and we couldn't be happier with the services that HouseMaster provided. Their on-site explanations of problem areas was great, and the report was incredibly thorough and easy to go through. We ran the report by a couple of professionals we know with ties to contract work and home improvement, and one of them said it was the most thorough report they'd ever seen. Additionally, the value of the inspection plus the CL-100 and radon reports was unmatched by 6 other inspection services I looked at before deciding on HouseMaster. We can now rest easy knowing that our home is safe and well-built!

I love the fact that they are a one stop shop. They can do any inspection needed. Kim & Stuart are very personable and helpful. I will definitely use them again. Also love the follow up that they do when a buyer has moved into their home. They keep the Realtor's name in front of the buyer. Also they have a 1 year guarantee on things that they say are satisfactory on their reports. Just a great company!
