About Tarheel Home Inspections

Home Inspector James Keel #2476

I started in the construction industry before I was out of high school and worked in the industry for 20 years. I liked the construction industry but decided that I was ready for a change and started doing home inspections part-time. I did this for about a year and liked it so much that I leaped at being a full-time inspector. I have been a full-time inspector ever since. I do all types of inspections for real estate transactions, banks, relocation companies, trusts, and miscellaneous field inspections. I like to provide a thorough home inspection with a detailed report, so my clients know what they are purchasing.

Pre-listing Inspection

A home inspection can go a long way toward the successful sale of a home when the service is scheduled before the listing is made. We’ll assess the property’s overall condition, letting you know about existing defects so that you’re aware of issues that could become potential deal-breakers to prospective buyers. If you choose to make repairs, there’s a high likelihood that doing so will lead to a smoother and less stressful real estate transaction.

New Construction Inspection

This inspection service is conducted before the builder’s final walkthrough of new home construction. We’ll take our time investigating the property’s readily accessible structures and mechanical systems, providing a detailed inspection report that will explain any defects or systems that are not working correctly that we discover. Scheduling a home inspection at this time is essential for protecting your investment, allowing you to request repairs and other improvements before you close on the home.


We can perform a secondary inspection of a home if the seller of the property has made repairs since our initial inspection took place. We’ll return to the home prior to closing and looking back over the components that were repaired to make sure that the home’s condition has been improved as promised.

11-Month Warranty Inspection

When you purchase a newly built home the standard is for it to be protected by a limited builder’s warranty for up to one year. Before the warranty expires, we’ll conduct an inspection of the property to look for repair and maintenance issues that may have emerged since the closing date. Many types of repairs will be covered by the warranty agreement, potentially saving you hundreds or thousands of dollars.

Commercial Property Inspection

Our inspection services are also available for commercial properties, whether it’s a small business or an industrial building. We’ll come to the site and thoroughly investigate the condition of the entire property and report on existing deficiencies and safety hazards. The inspection report will clearly explain areas of concern so that prospective investors have the information needed to protect their interests.
