About Us

About Us

We offer reliable, professional and thorough home inspections to Maryland, Virginia and DC agents, home buyers and home owners.

Our inspectors are certified by the American Society of Home Inspectors (ASHI), and are licensed and insured.

Our comprehensive and user-friendly reporting system offers clients a simple, easy-to-read inspection report, along with useful insights. This reporting system allows us to:

  • Put your property into perspective by comparing it with its peers.
  • Summarize major areas of concern and significant qualities of the property.
  • Identify potential remodeling problems.
  • Note amateur workmanship or substandard maintenance.
  • Detail the maintenance for all components of the house.
  • List problems in major and minor groupings (generally, major problems are defined as constituting a safety hazard or that cost $500 or more to repair).

  • We were really impressed with Sprout. Chris took me throughout the house and property, explained what we was looking for, and showed me the items that were strengths of the home, as well as, pointing out future care and maintenance priorities. We had a question about a possible future modification to the home, and Chris even went the extra mile to help us get a second opinion. Overall, I was certainly satisfied, and I would recommend Sprout to others.

  • Chris did a great job. He was very thorough and his written report, which was on the web with detailed photos made it very clear which items need to be fixed. I would highly recommend his services.

  • I had the pleasure of having Chris do a home inspection. He is extremely professional, thorough, and knowledgeable. He was early to our appointment, and stayed to answer any and all questions, giving thoughtful answers to each, even though it prolonged his time with us. We never felt rushed throughout the inspection, though he had mentioned he had a few more appointments once we were finished. He is a fantastic home inspector and an all around great guy! Highly recommended!

  • Fantastic job. As first time home buyers, we weren't sure what we needed to know or be aware of, and in addition to adding issues to the report that required attention to be fixed/remedied, Chris also answered all our general home upkeep/knowledge questions when they came up as we went through the inspection with him. Detailed report including pictures and videos.

  • Mr. Chris Lee completed our home inspection and we couldn't be more satisfied. Chris gave so much time and attention to each detail of the house. He was very patient, knowledgeable, and informative throughout the appointment. We felt great that we were in trustworthy hands, which made the home-buying process that much less stressful. I would recommend this professional to anyone!
