Buying a Home is an Emotional Experience

It's far too easy to become attached to a home. We're here to provide you with an independent, professional opinion so you can make the right choice.

A home inspection is an objective visual inspection of the physical structure and systems of the home. The inspection will arm you with detailed, unbiased information.

We'll uncover building defects, necessary repairs, safety hazards, and preventative maintenance issues that could cost you a lot of money down the road. We'll also help you understand which problems are major, and which problems can be corrected inexpensively.

A happy couple who just became new home owners after a great home inspection.

I highly recommend using Carolina Shield Home Inspections! Mike was able to get my client on his schedule quickly, and conducted a fantastic inspection. This property had two other inspections done by other potential buyers, and both of the other home inspection companies missed major damage. Mike was able to uncover about $13,000 of missed damage for my clients! His report gave them negotiating power, and a significant credit at closing. My clients could not be happier, and neither could I.

I highly recommended this company! Mike did an inspection for me recently, on a home in North Carolina. I live out of state, and I found Mike's company using a google search and reviews. His website is very informative and user-friendly. I was even able to set up an appointment online. Mike is professional and responsive, with great attention to detail, customer service, and reliability when I had additional questions. I wasn't able to attend the actual inspection, because I am out of town, but Mike stayed in contact with me and gave me detailed explanations of what he found. This isn't my first house, and I was incredibly impressed with his knowledge of detail and professionalism. He was happy to spend time answering my many questions. I will absolutely hire him again when I need an inspection done.

Our clients love Michael's inspection reports, which are extremely detailed with color-coding, and the hands-on approach he has with our Buyers/Sellers. He takes the time to explain things in a clear, concise manner, and (often times) relieves the stress or fear that can accompany these reports. Michael is thorough, detailed and leaves no stone unturned while making sure the client is protected throughout the buying process. Keep up the great work, Mike, and Thank You for all you do for our clients!

Mike was incredibly thorough and detailed, and even had the inspection report complete the same day. He gave me some excellent feedback and really gave me peace of mind knowing that he truly checked everything possible. I feel much more prepared for what's ahead in buying my first home. Highly recommend!!

We suspected a rodent had gotten into our duct system, we called our HVAC company who told us to call our Pest Control company. Our pest control company (who we have a contract with) told us to call our HVAC people and refused to do anything about the issue. Tired of playing phone tag with different companies we contacted Carolina Shield Home Inspection desperate for some answers. Mike was exceptionally friendly and quickly came out to the residence to complete a crawl space inspection. Instantly he knew there was a problem with the duct system (things our other companies blatantly overlooked) and gave us a detailed report WITH PHOTOS of exactly what was happening underneath our home. If you're having an issue with your home, and want someone who is knowledgeable, friendly and will give you the truth! call Carolina Shield Home Inspections!!

Michael is very responsive! Getting set up for an inspection is simple and quick. The prices are reasonable, especially for the time and care put into the methodical review. Best of all, he conducted a professional inspection and made sure all of my questions were answered, including education on systems I am not familiar with.
