Advanced Termite & Home Inspections is proud to be one of Eastern North Carolina’s most experienced, respected, and trusted home inspection leaders. We love what we do, and we’re happy to embrace the daily challenge of inspecting homes—using our investigative skill set and years of hands-on knowledge to provide a service that will make buying a home safer and a substantially simpler process for our valued clients.

We’re committed to being there for you in every way possible, offering a full selection of residential and commercial property inspections—as well as WDI inspections and general pest control services for your convenience!

If you’d like, come along and walk with us during the home inspection so that we can go over our findings in person—helping to answer your questions, dispel your fears, and to communicate realistic solutions for the issues we uncover.

We take the time to both assess the home’s needs and to answer your questions as directly and comprehensively as possible—and we’ll even remain available over the phone long after the inspection so that you can call whenever you need us!
