Our Approach to Home Inspection

We touched on the “why we went into business” a little bit in our introduction blog.  We felt the nomadic lifestyle we were living wasn’t the best choice for our family. As we began planning for a career move, we did some soul searching in an attempt to find the best fit for us.


So why did we choose home inspection?

The choice was straight forward for Brantley.  He liked his work at his corporate job, and a big part of his job was inspecting the work of others.  He didn’t like the lack of control over where we were sent and the length of time we would be there. We knew he wanted to continue his career in the construction industry, so we needed to create a business allowing him to perform the aspects of his job that he enjoyed, while being able to stay in one place. Home inspection fit the bill perfectly.

For Jennifer, the choice wasn’t as clear cut. Her strengths are organization and planning, but she didn’t want to be sidelined to administrative tasks. Home inspection presented itself as an opportunity to learn and develop skills necessary to be involved in the business. She did not grow up around construction so she had a lot to learn.  She completed a pre-licensing program and passed the state exam, with high marks, on the first try.  She likes her newfound knowledge. Being able to apply the skills she obtained to help people in a real estate transaction is fulfilling.

Now that you know more about our background and experience, why choose Parkwood Property Inspections?


At first glance, people might think all home inspection companies are the same. Often, they don’t research their options and just go with whomever their realtor recommends. With so much money involved in each real estate transaction, selecting the right inspection company adds value to the process because you are able to feel more confident in your purchase.

Here are some great reasons to choose Parkwood:

  • We are a full service inspection firm, which means you only have to make one call and we take care of the rest. We can do Home, Pest, Septic, Radon, Well, Water, and Air Quality Inspections.
  • Typically, we do all our inspections together. When you hire Parkwood for your home inspection, you get two trained eyes looking out for your best interest.  We understand at the point of your real estate transaction when you meet us, you want the deal to go through. We want that for you! And we can help you navigate what is important and what items are less critical.
  • We pride ourselves on customer service and satisfaction, and because we are a multi-inspector firm, we are able to have more time for you.  We can divide the work and be more readily available to answer your questions in person, on the phone, or by email.
  • Brantley’s lifetime connections in the construction industry in the Piedmont Triad area are another great reason to choose Parkwood Property Inspections for your home inspection. We are able to put you in touch with respected, affordable, and licensed contractors to complete any repairs required.  We do not get compensated in any way by recommending a contractor to you. It is an added service we provide to make sure you have someone you can trust and that will do the job right the first time.
