Keith, Jamie, and their whole team were incredibly helpful. Responsive, reactive and thorough through the whole process. We hired them for a pre-drywall inspection, working entirely remote and couldn't have asked for better service. We will be using them again for the final inspection and look forward to having the chance to meet them in person at that time.

Absolutely recommend them for home inspections. They were professional and thorough. I was able to make an informed decision based on the condition of the house because of the inspection. Thank you!

Our inspection of the house we were buying was very thorough. Every area of the house was inspected inside and out, top to bottom. The detailed report gave us all the information we needed for areas of the house that were a concern and needed to be repaired or further inspection needed. We were very happy with the service we received at a fair price.
- H.J., June 2021
I would definitely recommend this team. They did a fantastic job. They told us things about the house that played a big decision NOT to buy it! At least now, the seller has to disclose what was found. At least I hope they do.
- M.H., June 2021

My dealings with Coastal Home Inspection Services was exceptional. Being for out of state, I was a little skeptical of what I was in for. Dealing with Keith Jamie and Benton was a great experience.

First time I've actually been present during the inspection. At the end of the inspection, our inspector was able to review all the major findings with me in person. This was invaluable. He also answered my questions and explained things I did not understand. I would absolutely recommend Coastal home Inspections.
- C.C., March 2021
Did a thorough job. Facetimed with me to explain what they found.
- D.K., March 2021
The home that we are purchasing was only a few years old so we didn't expect to find a lot of issues in the inspection. We were correct in thinking that there were not a lot of major issues, but I would certainly recommend Coastal Home Inspections to anyone who is looking for a home inspector. Even though we didn't have a lot of issues that came up with the house, the inspection contained a lot of information about the features of the house that we may not have been familiar with in newer construction type of homes. Our inspector was great and always willing to answer any questions in as much or as little detail as we required. We were very happy with the results and it was well worth it!
- S.J., March 2021
thorough and complete thanks for a job well done
- J.A., March 2021
Very thorough. Attentive to our concerns. Prompt and professional.
- T.W., February 2021

- P.S., January 2021
Cindy and I were extremely pleased with the work down by Keith and Jamie. They were friendly and professional, and very thorough in their inspection. We were informed of all issues, large or small. Those that we needed to have fixed and those that we should just monitor over time. We would have no problem using their services in the future and highly recommend them to anyone needing inspection services for their property.
- M.S., January 2021

Our home inspection was such a smooth process from start to finish. We were so impressed with the detail provided in the report, as well as the communication throughout.

We are in the real estate and construction industry in the Northeast and have never encountered a home inspection report as thorough as this. Thank you!!

- J.D., October 2020
They were very thorough with their explanations so I could understand their concerns and recommendations plus their reports were very detailed and included pictures. Would highly recommend them for future inspections.
- K.C., October 2020
All went well and timely!
- R.K., September 2020
We were impressed with how thorough the inspection was. I’ve been a licensed home builder for over 25 years and the inspection caught things that I’m not sure I would have identified. Many home buyers hesitate to spend the money for an inspection. Some have a friend, or a relative who they ask to look the house over. This is all Keith and Jamie do. They’ve seen most of the issues over and over, so they know what to look for. If you want a professional review of your home, give Keith and Jamie an opportunity. They could save you thousands of dollars.
- S.K., September 2020
For a full, comprehensive inspection report on the condition of your home, Coastal Home Inspection Services is the company you want and can trust.

I contacted Coastal Home Inspection Services for a home we were purchasing on Hilton Head Island. I initially spoke to Benton in the office, who was a pleasure to deal with. He was able to give me the date & time we were looking for & followed up with emails providing clear information of the process & a confirmation call as well. Keith & Mark met us at the home & were quite thorough & professional. They went through each item they found~it’s a 23 year old home, so there were plenty! As promised, we had the emailed report, with clear photos by the next morning! Keith answered a question that I had concerning some findings & made himself & his knowledge available for any other questions or concerns. I highly recommend Coastal Home Inspection Services. N. P.
- N.P., May 2020
They were fast and so unbelievably thorough. We are moving from out of State and their report covered everything, making us completely confident in our home choice.

- J.S., May 2020

Our inspector was prompt, professional, courteous, and knowledgeable. After the inspection was complete he went throughout the complex showing anything that was deficient, why it was and what should be done to correct it. We were able to contact or realtor immediately so that the seller could begin to make the appropriate repairs. The inspection report was quite detailed and arrived in a timely manner. We would definitely recommend Coastal Home Inspections to anyone looking for an inspection company with integrity.
- K.S., March 2020

I've lived in more than 12 houses in four states over the past 20 years and needed an inspection in all of them.
