Contractor & Service Referrals
 
Below are Trade and Service Businesses that we have found to be experienced and reliable -- the service providers that we use.  If you use any of them, please feel free to let them know that Eye Spy Home Inspections referred them! 
 
We only refer businesses that operate in a professional and ethical manner, and who (at the time we verified) held necessary licensing as required by the state.  Because licensing requirements are designed to protect homeowners, we recommend you verify contractors licensing with the state prior to having any work done. A link to SC LLR (Dept of Labor and Licensing Regulation) to check contractor licensing is below.

Please note that while we have found these service providers to be qualified, professional and consistent, and we are happy to refer them to you, our referrals are not a guarantee of service.  Each contractor you choose to do business with is an independent agreement outside the realm or control of EyeSpy Home Inspections.   If you have a very good , or very bad experience with a service provider, please feel free to pass along your input.  We work hard to only refer quality contractors and service providers.
 

Don't hire a home inspector or any contractor to perform work at your home without checking for their state licensing!  Note: The requirements in NC and SC differ greatly: in South Carolina, no work of $200 or more may be done in a home in the required specialties without proper state licensing.  
The good news is that SC makes it very easy to verify licensing:

2. At the dropdown box for governing board, select RESIDENTIAL BUILDERS
3. Search by Last Name, Business Name, License #, City or License Type. Type your entry in and then type the verification characters in the box at bottom.  [Ex, you can type Palubiak in the Last Name field, and either select the Home Inspector License button to verify that, or leave that field blank to bring up all licenses -- which will show both his Inspection License, as well as Roofing / Specialty Contractors licenses.] 
4. Select the license you want to check and you can verify whether the license is active or not, whether a bond if on file, and how long the license has been issued.

Note about Bonds:  Licenses expire in June and LLR wipes out all bond listings in May so they can begin entering the new bonds in as they are received with license renewals.  If you are searching in May/June and it shows No Bond On File, you can call LLR to verify if there is actually a bond --which is valid thru end of June.
