Having just relocated to the middle Tennessee area from outside the state, I needed to find a qualified, trustworthy, inspection service that didn't cut corners for my new home purchase. I interviewed several contractors via phone, and I chose Dan Brazelton at Above Home Property Inspections because of his 20+ years of experience in the industry, his background as an engineer, his willingness to go up on the roof and in the crawl space, and the fact that his business was family owned and operated - not a franchise. The last point was important to me as I discovered there were many franchise operators in the area who just bought their way into the industry, but didn't have the background or experience. The inspection was in late December 2016 and I deliberately waited until now to give my review to see if anything major was missed. I can genuinely say that I couldn't be more pleased with my selection of Above Grade Property Inspections. The report I received was very thorough, lots of pictures and clear, detailed, explanations. I was able to use this in negotiating the fixes with the seller. Best of all though is that Dan took a lot of time to go over everything with me after the inspection AND was available for several follow up calls and e-mail responses when I had questions post-inspection. The customer service level was second to none. It's been six months since the inspection and not one thing has popped up in my home that wasn't outlined in Dan's inspection. I only gave him five stars because there wasn't a sixth!
