Here’s what we can do for you

Buyer's Inspection

A buyers inspection is a comprehensive inspection of the home and all of its systems. We provide an in-depth, thorough look at the home so the client can make an informed decision in the home buying process.

Pre-listing Inspection

A pre-listing inspection is similar to the buyers inspection, a fully comprehensive look at the home. This will let the seller know exactly what is happening with their home so they can make any necessary repairs and prevent any home inspection “surprises” and keep the home sale process moving smoothly.

Crawl Space Inspections

What is happening in your crawlspace? Most people don’t know. Let us crawl through the spider webs and dampness for you! We can let you know what is happening with your home from the underside. From plumbing to HVAC to structure. We will cover it.

Radon Testing

We provide a 48 hour continuous monitoring test that is standard for real estate transactions. We setup our RadonAway machine and ask that the homeowner observe “closed home” conditions. After the 48 hour test is over our machine gives us a readout onsite, so we are able to provide you results immediately and offer suggestions as to the next step.

What is Radon? Radon is the breakdown of radioactive uranium in the soil that enters your home. Radon is now the #2 cause of lung cancer in the U.S.

1 Year Builders Warranty Inspection

We will do a full inspection of your home prior to the 1 year builders warranty expiring.  This will help you create a punch list of items to have the builder repair before the warranty is expired. We have saved clients thousands of dollars in repairs with this inspection.

Reviews from our clients

“We were referred to Wallace and Trout Creek by our realtor. He was there before we arrived and was ready to start. He was very informative and easy to talk to. He did a thorough inspection and explained everything with great detail where we could easily understand it. We are extremely pleased with the job he did and highly recommend him. The price was lower than some we got quotes from and we feel we got more than our money’s worth. He seems to inspect the home as if he’s gonna be buying it and clearly cares a lot about doing right by his customer! You won’t regret hiring Wallace to do your inspection!” – Matt Bryan

“Extremely thorough. Very professional. Took the time to review finding with us. I would recommend them to anyone buying a house in the Nashville area. !!” – Jim Rohnkohl

“Fair price and extremely thorough. They did the inspection for the person buying my house and immediately I knew I wanted them doing mine. I was even able to contact them several times after the inspection to ask follow up questions. I highly recommend them.” – Felicia Hacker

“We used Trout Creek Inspections before our one year home warranty was up. Wally is such a pleasure to work with and really puts his customers first! His thorough inspection has saved us thousands of dollars of future maintenance. I can’t thank him enough!” – Autumn Ramsey

“As first-time home buyers, we had no idea what we were getting ourselves into. we had one house inspected after getting our offer accepted, and even though it was a new-build we discovered that it was not up to snuff. We couldn’t have done that without Wally. So naturally we called him again when we found another house that we loved. We move in soon and we couldn’t be happier. Wally and Trout Creek really helped us dodge a bullet.” – Melissa Pisarski
