DISCOVER OUR IMPRESSIVE HISTORY
Shelton Home Inspections is proud to be a family-owned and operated home, termite, and insurance inspection company. President and co-owner Stephen Shelton founded the company along with his wife and business partner Christine Shelton, in 2004. He’s been inspecting homes as a termite inspector for over 40 years and was co-owner and certified operator of Exterm-A-Tech, Inc. (a full-service termite and pest control company) which was sold in March of 2017.
In 2004, Stephen saw the opportunity to add home and insurance inspections to his service portfolio and therefore created Shelton Home Inspections, Inc. It’s no surprise that Stephen is very knowledgeable in the systems and components throughout a home and their functionality. Shelton Home Inspections is the “premier home inspection company of St. Petersburg”. “Our customers and realtors are extremely important to us. We have grown our business by providing quality inspections and making sure our buyers, sellers and their realtors have all the necessary information to make an educated decision.”
In today’s housing market, we understand it is extremely competitive and inspection timelines are shorter than ever before but don’t let the pressure and an emotional purchase be your guide, that’s when mistakes occur, and in this case a very expensive one. You can still be a competitive buyer at the same time by ordering all the necessary inspections needed to make an educated decision in a short timeline. With Shelton Home Inspections you will receive your reports within 24 hours, unlike an appraisal which can take up to a week to receive so there’s plenty of time to get your home inspections. We can typically do your inspections within a 3 – 5 day window so we highly recommend you always do a Full Home Inspection, termite inspection, 4-point (for homes 15 years or older depending on your carrier and condo’s over 40 years old), and wind mitigation. Purchasing a home is usually one if not the biggest investments a person will make in their lifetime.
Shelton Home Inspections may not be the least expensive inspection company in the area and is oftentimes the most expensive however when making one of the largest investments in most people’s lives, quality and attention to detail is critical. Our inspectors spend an average of 3 hours in a 1,500 sq ft home and take the time to do an overview of their findings with the buyers and realtors on-site after inspecting. Reports always have color pictures and detailed narratives of all issues found. Stephen is a licensed Master Home Inspector (#HI-709), Pest Control Certified Operator (JF3878), WDO Termite Inspector (JE7937), Certified Wind Mitigation Inspector, a Master Florida Association of Building Inspector (FABI) (ID #MPI-0687), Affiliates of the Pinellas Realtor Organization (PRO) and the President and Co-Owner of Shelton Home Inspections, Inc and Shelton Inspection Services, Inc, our termite company.
