    3.0 Sajid S. Irmo, SC

    OK service - did not find anything outstanding as I have done with previous home inspectors. The report output was pretty basic and I felt I could have found all the things myself in a similar amount of time. Hence, I would not recommend.

    Response from Company:

    Dear Sajid, Thank you for the review. We strive to give a 5 Star service. Please call me (803) 446-5468 and let me know if there is anything that I can do to provide that for you.

    5.0 Charles G. Irmo, SC

    Chad is very professional and willing to explain his findings during the inspection. Bonus that he is able to inspect HVAC systems.

    5.0 Robert B. Columbia, SC

    He was very responsive and wrote a clear report with added information of contractors at the end.

    5.0 Craig H. Lexington, SC

    I had the pleasure of working with Chad Strickland. First, he was prompt and on time and when my realtor was having problems getting into the house Chad was able to assist with getting into the key box. He was very thorough and took the time to explain what he was doing and after he was done, he took the time to explain his findings. He also took the time to print a report on the spot and gave my realtor and I both a copy of the report. Then he followed up with an email and when I asked about a particular item that wasnâ t on the emailed report, he resent the report with the Item and thanked me for reminding him of the missing item. Thank you so much Chad for taking the time and I will defiantly recommend Preferred Home Inspection if asked in the future. Craig

    HomeAdvisor allows Service Professionals to post information about themselves and their business on their profile. HomeAdvisor does not review or verify the information representations set forth in those profiles as they are self-reported by the Service Professional.

    HomeAdvisor verifies state-level licensing where applicable - note: some states require local or county level licensing and you should verify whether or not your pro is properly licensed.

    Seal of Approval

    What is the screening process that Service Professionals go through in order to become members of the HomeAdvisor network?

    1. Verify Trade License
      HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.
    2. Verify Insurance
      As a part of our screening process, we encourage professionals to carry general liability insurance. We require coverage for hundreds of services.
    3. Verification of State Business Filings
      For business types that require a Secretary of State filing, we confirm that the business is in good standing in the state in which it is located.
    4. Criminal Records Search
      HomeAdvisor uses 3rd party data sources to conduct a criminal search for any relevant criminal activity associated with the owner/principal of the business.
    5. Sex Offender Search
      We confirm that the owner/principal is not listed on the official state Sex Offender web site in the state in which the owner/principal of the company is located.
    6. Bankruptcy Search
      We use 3rd party data sources to check the history of the principal/owner of the business for bankruptcy filings by or against them.
    7. Legal Search for Civil Judgments
      We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for state level civil legal judgments entered against them.
    8. Liens Search
      We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for liens placed against them.
    9. Identity Verification (SSN)
      HomeAdvisor verifies the social security number(s) of the owner/principal for identity check purposes. This check applies primarily to smaller business entities.
    10. Identity Verification (Reverse Phone Lookup)
      We conduct a reverse business phone lookup to identify records matching the phone number information provided by the business.
