It is our goal not to see as many homes as possible in one day, but to see YOUR home in as many ways possible. 

At Beach House Inspections we take our time with each inspection. At every inspection we pride ourselves in going above and beyond state requirements and spend more time on the property than most inspectors. We allow 3-4 hours to fully inspect a property. Our inspector climbs on roofs, crawls into crawlspaces, and explores attics to make sure that every angle of your home has been looked at through keen and knowledgeable eyes. 

We provide you with thorough, easy to read and understand reports. ​

The biggest compliment we receive from clients and realtors is how amazing our reports are at Beach House Inspections. Our digital reports are sent within 24 hours of an inspection and provide you with lots of pictures, condition summary, and extra notes from the inspector.

We provide you with quick scheduling, we even work weekends! ​​ 

Our Home Inspector in Panama City Beach Florida is certified by InerNASHI and by Inspection Certification Associates and is also a member of Central Panhandle Association of Realtors. 

We look for the bad, but we also point out the good.

Once, when selling a 75 year old house, a home inspector made it clear to me that his primary purpose was to find everything that was wrong with the property. (We later learned that he also offered his repair services, but that is another story.)

As you can imagine, a house that old had some things wrong with it, but it also was filled with character, had a solid foundation, a new roof, new plumbing, and a new electrical system which were never included with his report. 

Beach House Inspections is unique because our reports provide you not only with the cautions, repairs, and maintenance that needs to be addressed on the property but also the things you can be encouraged and excited by. 

What a pleasure to work with a professional. Hank is always thorough without being alarming. He doesn't feel the need to exaggerate the problems found to make himself appear more valuable. Buyer's love his attention to detail and his way of explaining his findings. He truly wants homeowners to get to know their homes so that home ownership is a pleasure for years to come!

As a young man, a mentor told me that the most important investment I would ever make in my life would be purchasing my own home. Following his advice, my wife and I purchased and remodeled our first home in our early twenties and have gone on to purchase and flip several other properties.

While serving as a missionary-pastor to the Navajo Nation, I encouraged many families within my congregation to make an investment in home ownership. For many of those families I offered to inspect potential homes to help them understand the property and ease their fears before purchasing. 

After retiring from ministry and relocating to Panama City Beach I decided to turn my passion for home ownership into a business that helps others feel confident and secure in purchasing a home. 

If you are considering home inspection services on the Emerald Coast, I want to be there to help you get to know your home!

Hank is a good person that really helps the buyers know the home they are buying. He is always available to ask for more information on items you are concerned with. My buyers like that they can accompany him on the inspection. Hank is not only a good inspector but a great asset to add to your contacts.
