Chris Barnard - Owner

Chris Barnard – Owner

As the owner of the company, let me start off by making you a BIG Promise. If we inspect your home or condo and you are not 100% satisfied with our inspection – you pay absolutely nothing for the inspection.

After many years in the Home Inspection Business, I’ve seen many fly-by-night Home Inspectors come and go. I feel sorry for the home buyers that are victimized by these unscrupulous operators.

I’m so confident in our inspections that I’m willing to put my money where my mouth is.

You see, I understand this is an important step in your life. This Guarantee is just one more way to demonstrate my desire and commitment to meet and exceed your expectations. Also, I want to ensure you have an enjoyable real estate experience.

So at Intercoastal Inspections, LLC, we offer a simple, no weasel words Guarantee. Attend your home inspection Port Orange FL, and if for any reason you’re not satisfied with the “Quality” of the home inspection service, tell the inspector before receiving your report and we’ll either make it right, or you don’t pay the home inspection fee!

How Can We Guarantee an Inspection?

It’s easy. We find more defects than our competition. The end result is that you save more money. Most contracts allow negotiations with the seller to make repairs or give you credit at closing. So the more defects we find, the more money you save.

We don’t rush. This allows us time to do a thorough inspection of your new home or condo. This also means we charge a little more than most of our competitors.

You don’t want a cheap inspection. A cheap inspection may be the most expensive thing you’ll ever buy and it may cost you thousands of dollars down the road because of missed or overlooked defects.

Cheap home inspectors often know less and do less, which is one reason why they’re cheap.


Our Licensed Home Inspector in Port Orange will spend two to four hours thoroughly evaluating all aspects of the Property you are purchasing, from the Roof to Foundation and all areas in between.

We want you to come along with us during the course of the Home Inspection in the Greater Port Orange area. Okay, if you’re a seasoned home buyer it may not be as important that you’re there the entire time.

However, if you’re new to the home buying process, it’s very important that you’re there from start to finish.

We’ll not only inspect the house you’re buying, but we’ll share with you what needs to be maintained and why. You’ll get a real education about your new home.

Don’t worry, we’ll explain everything in terms you can understand. We are a “Jargon Free” Company!

We know your schedule is very hectic so we work hard to accommodate you! Because not everyone can attend the inspection during the day or week, we offer weekend inspections.

Please know that our weekend schedule is limited and on a first-come, first served basis. So please call now (386) 868-8375 to let one of our schedulers know as soon as possible if you need a weekend inspection. We’ll do our best to accommodate you!

One of the ways to judge the quality and professionalism of the work done by a home inspector is to take a look at their inspection report.  We’ve included them here for your review.

What Our Clients Are Saying

As a Realtor in St Augustine for the past 8 years I have worked with many great home inspectors over the years….but Chris Barnard outshines them all! He always fulfills his promises and over delivers to all my clients. I appreciate his honesty and candor and his down home friendliness and his willingness and patience to answer all my clients questions and concerns.. This past weekend there was a mixup in the scheduling of a home inspection but he came to the rescue and did an inspection for us on his Saturday off! That is just one demonstration of his willingness to go the extra mile for his clients! Thanks Chris……in my book…you are at the top of the list!!!!


The owner Chris was extremely knowledgeable and thorough. In a process that can be very stressful and place a lot of pressure on a first-time home buyer, he spent time walking my boyfriend and I through each of his concerns as if it were his own investment at stake. We will definitely be using and recommending InterCoastal Inspections for anything possible throughout our buying experience – very pleased for a reasonable price, and he even went out of his way to accommodate our last minute request outside of business hours. Thank you Chris!


Thank you so much for your inspection! With your 50 page review, we literally can hand repair men your review inspection to have problems addressed. Makes my life way easier and I can actually talk about the issues sounding like I know what I’m talking about My house is a huge project and your printed inspection is an awesome “to-do” list! Thanks again Chris… best money spent on the house!
