What We Inspect and Why

A home inspection is a visual examination of the home's major structure, systems, and components that are visible and safely accessible. Buying a home is typically the biggest investment you will ever make, so it's important to get a home inspection because the inspector can find and document defects that may or may not be obvious to you as a prospective buyer.  Such defects can range from simple replacements or repairs to severe damage or safety and health concerns.

Meet Your Inspector

Michael Berney Smith

Berney Home Inspections has been in operation since 2014. I work in Knoxville and surrounding areas. 

I have completed well over 2,000 inspections to date. I have worked in and around residential construction for over 40 years... (family business). I also have over 12 years working in the communications industry.

As a neutral party in the transaction process I strive to make your home inspection experience as informative as possible. By use of the report details you can make a more educated decision on your potential purchase. As buying a home / property is one of the largest investments a person can make.
