WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY ABOUT US
Dear Phil, I just wanted to take a moment to let you know how pleased my husband and I were with your services. When we found ourselves in need of an inspector to work with we pulled from several sources; real estate agent, personal references, and the yellow pages. After we contacted your company we were pleased to find not only did you have 27 years of inspection experience, but that you could accommodate the unusual hours that our client preferred. We really appreciate the information you exchanged with us on site during the inspection. Your attention to detail was excellent ! We also appreciated your suggestions of how we could possibly resolve problems. If we are ever in need of inspection services or have any recommendations solicited from us we will be sure to send them your way.
Thanks again, Krista McCampbell

Summary: A+ work, A+ value, A+ guy
Phil Henderson inspected a property on 4/18/16 that I am in the process of purchasing. He arrived 15 minutes early in a clean and professional looking van and was well dressed himself. Phil was friendly and sociable from the start. I chose to be present during the inspection and am very happy I did. The inspection began with Phil walking the roof and inspecting the exterior of the property. Next Phil got out his drone and took aerial pictures of the roof and property. He had already found issues with the roof within the first 15 minutes. The inspection then moved inside where Phil meticulously inspected and photographed the entire house including the attic and crawl spaces. I chose to have the thermal imaging done during my inspection which uncovered that one of the walls had no insulation in it! The amount of information gathered from the thermal imaging was incredible. Phil showed me how he measured the AC inlet and outlet temperatures and could check for AC leaks with the thermal. I could go on and on about the thermal but for brevity sake I will say that I think it was worth every penny. From start to finish he was there for approx. 3 hours. He discovered multiple issues that I was unaware of and provided picture documentation of all of them. I chose to have Phil inspect my future home because I heard he was a good, honest guy that did quality work and am happy to report that all of these are true. I am thankful for the great work Phil did and am confident that I know the true condition of the home I am purchasing. I asked Phil for multiple business cards before he left because I will be emphatically recommending him to everyone I know.

"We first met Phil Henderson when we commissioned TN Building Inspections to inspect a seemingly great investment, commercial property in 2016. He uncovered some hidden structural flaws and we have saved ourselves from potentially a very bad investment. Since then, we've worked with Phil on four properties, which we successfully closed on with assurance for the strength of each investment that we could not have gauged without Phil's reports & input. Each time, we were met with the same professionalism, enthusiasm, and individualized attention. He understands that time is of the essence in all real estate transactions and is timely with both scheduling the inspection and producing the report. He is equipped with the latest technologies with expertly trained staff, though they are not afraid to get their hands dirty too, climbing and crawling into spaces that isn't visible off the street; we never question whether an item has been left unchecked. With each inspection, Phil has personally followed up with us to go over the report and to answer our questions. We are very grateful for his thorough, candid perspective, and look to no one else!"
