What was previously a difficult and expensive task can now be achieved much more cost-effectively using our remotely piloted aerial systems resulting in a more detailed building inspection of roofs, chimneys vents, flashings, guttering and dormers. We can give you a series of high resolution images or high definition video of most hard to reach structures. We can even monitor the footage being gathered on our remote ground station screens to make sure we're getting exactly the images we require to determine the condition of our target. The results are a higher level of certainty for our clients.
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 inspection service to work with we pulled from several sources; real estate agent, personal references, the internet and the social pages. After we contacted your company we were pleased to find not only did you have over 27 years of inspection experience, but that you could accommodate the unusual hours that we 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
Phil snd his staff are great to work with and he is very knowledgeable and trustworthy. He has great integrity and works in the best interest of colleagues and clients. Above and beyond the call of duty is what you get with him.

I know Phil both personally and professionally and turn to no other company when I need commercial building inspections. Shanks Properties has been in business over 15 years and invests $2-3 million annually in the local real estate market and we TRUST Phil and company to assist us in those investment decisions. He is my one and only referral when asked about building inspectors, both residential and commercial

Summary: A+ work, A+ value, A+ guy
Phil Henderson and staff inspected a property on 4/18/16 that I am in the process of purchasing. They 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 them walking the roof and inspecting the exterior of the property. Next they got out the drone and took aerial pictures of the roof and property. They had already found issues with the roof within the first 15 minutes. The inspection then moved inside where they 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. They 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 they were there for approx. 3 hours. They discovered multiple issues that I was unaware of and provided picture documentation of all of them. I chose to have Phil and his staff to 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's staff 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 and staff when we commissioned Tennessee Building Inspections to inspect a seemingly great investment, commercial property in 2016. They 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. They understand that time is of the essence in all real estate transactions and is timely with both scheduling the inspection and producing the report. His staff are equipped with the latest technologies , 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!"

The most honest and reliable property inspectors in Knoxville Tennessee!
As an instructor at Pellissippi State I taught several of the courses offered for the Building Performance Analyst Certification. I cannot express enough the insight and knowledge Mr. Henderson provided to our class concerning structural and mechanical aspects of a building. Mr. Henderson scored perfectly in all areas of building science during the two week training course work and was my highest level performer in the field test.
