Since our founding in 2007 Safety 1st Home Inspection has helped thousands of East Tennessee home buyers and sellers.

We are different.

To our knowledge, we are the only home inspection firm in East Tennessee that employs our home inspectors. Most home inspection businesses use 1099 contractors to perform their inspections.

ALL our employees are W-2 employees. This is a benefit to our clients as well as our team members. As an employer we provide our inspectors with regularly scheduled ongoing continuing education and expect our inspectors to perform your home inspection to our high standards. A company that uses independent contractors is limited by IRS law as to how they may instruct, train and evaluate their contract inspectors.

Additionally, each of our inspectors is certified by both the International Association of Certified Home Inspectors and the Home Inspectors of Tennessee Association.

Our inspectors have workers compensation insurance and are eligible for additional insurance benefits. All tools are supplied, and the cost of insurance and professional organization fees are paid by Safety 1st Home Inspection. We are seriously invested in building our home inspection business the right way. For the benefit of our team and our customers.

We would love to help you with your next home inspection!
