"Karl was amazing with our home inspection and immediate follow-up. His experience as a former builder, current homeowner in the area, and home inspector in the highlands-cashiers plateau was very beneficial to our family. We were in the process of purchasing a home, so the home inspection was an essential piece of information that we needed to review prior to completing the transaction. Karl took the time to respond to each of the areas that he included in the report; offered some ideas on how best to mitigate the issues; and provided guidance on how to maintain the property after its purchase. We never felt rushed with his explanations and ideas on how to move forward. Karl uses his builder experience to explain, in great detail, how systems that run the home work, what to do as a homeowner to maintain a home that is already low-maintenance, and where to look for potential areas that could become a future problem in a temperate rain forest. Most importantly, we could tell that he loves what he does, and he takes great pride in teaching others. Thank you, Karl, for your guidance and support!!!"

"Karl, with Bluebird Home Inspections was absolutely the best home inspector I have ever met! He was professional & courteous, he went the extra mile to make sure that I had a complete understanding of all the issues. In my experience, his thoroughness was unprecedented! I would highly recommend this professional to anyone buying a home in this area!!!"

"I was very happy with the service and responsiveness I got with Bluebird Home Inspections. The report was thorough and detailed in every aspect. I was able to use the information to get the sellers to replace the roof shingles which was extremely helpful. I highly recommend Karl if you are buying a home in the Franklin area!"

"I am in the process of purchasing a home in the Tuckasegee area, but live full time in South Florida. Karl performed inspections on two properties for me, and the information and insight from his thorough and detailed approach has been outstanding, and an invaluable resource in the consideration of such a large purchase from a distance. The reports are excellent, and the process was seamless and punctual. I would highly recommend Bluebird Home Inspections and Karl if you are purchasing a home in the area!"

"It was a pleasure working with Karl Haiss and Bluebird Home Inspections.  I had serious roof issues, and received conflicting reports from 3 separate people from the insurance company which btw all contradicted each other.


His inspection was thorough, patient, friendly, professional, knowledgeable, and responsive.   

His report (which he had shown me an example of on what to expect, was given to me before he showed up) was thorough, easy to read, and understand. 


Above all, I so appreciated Karl confirming my concerns “early" in the inspection. He did not “wait” to write the report to bring concerns to our attention.  

He was professional in letting us know the difference between the BIG, versus small issues.​  I cannot overstate the value of his expertise and knowledge in advising us on this major home issue/investment."
