Looking for the Best Value and Quality Home Inspection in Charlotte?

Learn the true condition of the home so you can know you’re making the right decision.

When looking for a professional home inspection in Charlotte, choose Starmark for our thoroughness, experience, easy-to-understand reports, and exceptional customer service.

In other words, we provide peace of mind. 

Looking for the Best Value?

You’re in the right place! When it comes to anything in the home buying process, you need the best service at the best price. We are not the cheapest nor the most expensive, but we offer you the best value.  We are known for our thoroughness, integrity and customer service and we offer a detailed report with digital pictures.

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

You don’t want a cheap inspection. It may be the most expensive thing you’ll ever buy. It could 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 cost less. They don’t look at everything we look at. Only a representative number of switches, doors, windows etc are tested. We inspect everything we can access. We run a full dishwasher test, when some inspectors may only test a short cycle. We fill up your sinks instead of just running the water. You can imagine how these differences can add up!

The more thorough we are, the more defects we find, and the more money you can save!

We just wanted to say thank you to Starmark Inspections.  You did a really good job.  You made us feel really comfortable with the house.  You were really laid back and explained everything in layman’s terms which is good for us since we are new home buyers.  We weren’t exactly sure what to look for and you gave us a clear understanding.  
You also discovered everything from major things to all the little stuff…not just—“Ok! Everything’s fine!”.. 
Very good.  We recommend Starmark. Casey Ogrodnick & David Hunt

John was not only a great inspector, he also took the time to thoroughly explain all of his findings in an easy to understand manner. He’s obviously there to make the buyer comfortable and aware of any and all issues that he finds and has done a great job of helping us be comfortable with making a major purchase. I will be recommending John to anyone I know who is buying a home, new or old. Benjamin Brown

Take it from our Happy Customers

Since 2005 we’ve worked with over 12,700 happy customers. We love working with all types of home buyers. Our clients are so grateful for the information and peace of mind we provide.
Extremely Thorough

We purchased a new-build and assumed it would be in almost perfect condition; Starmark proved otherwise! They were able to provide an extremely comprehensive review that, once we work with the builder to rectify the findings, will ultimately give us peace of mind on our home purchase. Would definitely recommend!

FAQ’s

Q: How do I choose a home inspector in the Charlotte NC area?
A: Call up and ask about their credentials and experience. If for some reason you don’t feel comfortable asking this of the inspector when speaking with them on the phone then how will you feel asking questions at the inspection of your home? You must feel that the home inspector is qualified, experienced and attentive of your needs.
Q: What are your home inspectors' qualifications?
A: John Hill is trained and is NACHI Certified. He adheres to The Standards of Practice set forth by NC & SC Standards of Practice and those set forth by NACHI  and also adhears to the code of ethics and was educated and trained and worked as a CE with his Masters in CE and had his PE for 15 years in the Charlotte NC area.

John Hill started working in the construction industry in the early 70’s.  He gained an appreciation for quality construction materials and techniques.  This early experience led John to attend college,  graduating from Virginia Tech with a bachelors and masters degree in Civil Engineering.  After college, John moved to Charlotte in 1978 and worked for the City of Charlotte.  His duties included project management and overseeing construction of all type of municipal buildings, including fire stations, bus terminals, recreation centers, museums, and operation centers.  After leaving the City, John pursued direct involvement as a subcontractor and later became a Principal in a large award-winning architectural / engineering firm.   His responsibilities included overseeing large construction projects.  John became licensed as a Professional Engineer and General Contractor.

After a successful career, John decided to go into business for himself, doing home repairs and home remodeling projects.

In 1999, John was licensed as a home inspector and is a full time dedicated home inspector.   John is a member of NACHI and NCLHIA.  John’s education is always being improved.  His yearly education far exceeds what is required by the state of North Carolina.  John is noted for integrity.

John is also licensed by North Carolina Home Inspectors Licensing Board  #1232 and South Carolina Home Inspectors Licensing Board # 2268.

Q: Can a house fail the inspection?
A: No. A home inspector does not issue a pass or fail grade on a home. A professional home inspection is an examination of the current condition of the prospective home. The inspector will describe the physical condition of the home and indicate what may need repair or replacement.
Q: What kind of report can I expect?
A: The Home Inspection Report will give easy to read details on:

  • The general condition of the home from the roof to the basement.
  • How things work.
  • Major and minor deficiencies.
  • Suggestions to remedy deficiencies.
  • Any major expenditure coming up.
  • What to watch out for.

See a sample report here.

Q: When and how do I schedule an appointment?
A: You generally have between seven and ten days after you sign the contract to get a home inspection. We would advise you to call us as soon as you sign a contract on the prospective home. This will ensure that you can get an appointment at a time that’s most convenient for you.

When you’re ready to get on our schedule, just give us a call or book online. We have two full-time schedulers on staff to assist you. We answer the phones until 9 pm every day of the week. If you don’t catch us, just leave a message and we will get right back to you.

You can also use our easy online scheduler by clicking here. It will let you see our open availability and choose the time that is best for you.

Q: How much does a home inspection cost in Charlotte NC?
A: The price of the home inspection varies based on the size of the home. Larger homes take longer to inspect, hence the fees for these homes are greater than those for a smaller home. However, don’t let the price of the inspection determine whether or not you get a home inspection or the selection of your home inspector. The knowledge gained from an inspection is well worth the cost, and the lowest priced inspector is not necessarily a bargain. The inspector’s qualifications, including his experience, training, and professional affiliations should be the most important consideration.
Q: How do I pay?
 A: Payment is due at or before the end of the inspection. We accept personal checks (made out to Starmark Home Inspections), cash and all major credit cards. If you are unable to attend the inspection, we ask that you provide us with your credit card information when scheduling your appointment. Your card will not be charged until the inspection is complete and we keep all data in a secure online system.

You can also pay online here.

“I initially choose Starmark Home Inspections based off of prior client reviews, but after working with them, they will always be my first choice of inspectors. The staff was always professional and courteous. The inspector took his time and thoroughly looked over the property and even made sure items were up to code. After completing the inspection, the inspector was willing to sit down with me and review all findings. If you are looking for a qualified home inspector, book today!”
