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.

- 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.

- H.B., June 2019
From beginning to end this inspection was so smooth. I was called right away to set the inspection up, they were on time and went right to work. I had not planned to be there, my realtor was handling it. However, I did end up coming to let contractors in. Keith and Jamie were just about done. When finished, they went over their findings and suggestions as to what they felt were the important issues to be addressed. They were so thorough, very professional and within hours I had the written report in my email, highlighting, with pictures, their recommendations. It doesn?t get any better than that, hense-score of 10! Thank you!
- L.B., June 2019
professional and thorough very pleased with our first experience-will definitely use and recommend for our South Carolina business.
- B.P., Savannah GA, May 2019
I researched home inspectors before using Coastal Inspections, and was not disappointed. Everything went smoothly from the initial contact, scheduling, billing, inspection and subsequent questions I had. Their website is very useful and I love the ?fix or repair? function to create a list for the seller. Keith was friendly, explained any faults found and took his time. I would not hesitate recommending them.
- W.D., May 2019
We wanted to be onsite during the inspection, but our commitments would have meant the inspection would have to be put off for two weeks and we didn't want that to happen. The inspection report came quickly (on a Sunday even) and detailed with photos giving us more insight than we expected from a remote position. This process was timely and thorough and put us more at ease with the condition of the house we are under contract for.
- T.H., May 2019
You run a terrific business. Thorough, prompt, responsive, knowledgeable, always open to answering questions and explaining the details. Everything is easy from scheduling the inspection to viewing the results. We have complete trust in your judgement and feel secure knowing you inspected our new home. AND you are both so pleasant to be with!
- T.M., April 2019
From the eyes of a novice I observed your inspection to be thorough and complete. Your verbal explanations were easily understood and the photos reinforce your explanations. Now to get the issues repaired by current owners. Thank You JoAnne and Bill S
- B.S., April 2019
We were very pleased with the thorough inspection and next day detailed deficiency report on our new home. It is comforting to know EVERYTHING that needs to be corrected going into such a major purchase, and Keith & Jamie left no stone unturned. The trusted contractor list that accompanied our final report was an unexpected plus, and will be useful for year to come. We highly recommend Coastal Inspection Services!
- S.D., April 2019
Worked with me to do the home inspection prior to my short deadline. Called Keith with some questions about items on the report and he was extremely informative and helpful. Would definitely recommend!
- L.G., April 2019
Very thorough inspection and clearly written reports.
- J.W., April 2019
Thank you, this is my first time buying a home and didn't know what to expect. Coastal Home Inspection was recommended by my real estate agent and family friend who used your company, I am very happy with the results; detailed beyond belief. It gave me a view to what the "naked eye" walking through missed. Thank you for such a great job, when asked do I know an inspection company, my response will be Coastal Home Inspection.
- C.V., April 2019
Although we are in the digital age, a choice to receive a hard copy of the inspection report (vs printing on home printer yourself) could be included.
- B.L., March 2019
Keith and Jamie and their entire staff are the best!! They are knowledgeable, thorough, professional top to bottom. They provided very detailed inspection reports. Everything was done in the most timely manner. My husband is a civil engineer in building construction, so there was a lot of angst in building a home while living 12 hours away. Keith and Jamie and staff had our backs all the way. They come with the highest recommendations from Tom and myself !! Geri

- L.F., Hilton Head SC, February 2019

- B.B., November 2018
The service and appraisal we received from Keith and his team were quite impressive. They showed up 5 minutes early and proceeded to inspect this home in a way that I never experienced before. They were thorough and professional, alway connected by headsets so that they could communicate with one another. Keith took some time to discuss a few issues with us and he was genuinely engaged and concerned for our situation. Service like this is so rare today. I recommend the team at Coastal Home Inspection Services with the highest regard. They were simply amazing.
- W.J., November 2018
You fellows were fantastic!😊. We could not have been more pleased!!! A very thorough and informative inspection. Joe and Terri Lenahan
- J.L., November 2018
Your folks were thorough and communicated very well with me and the seller. It was a pleasure to work with you. My only concern was that there was no mention in the report of a severely damaged fire pit....which I now hope won?t become a more difficult issue to resolve with the seller. Also would appreciate your advice re the lumber stored in the crawl space. Need it be removed?
- T.S., November 2018
Quick response time. Extremely thorough. Well staffed with several inspectors on site. Together, they found several things I missed. I will use them again!
