About The Inspector

    When you hire Alan Chase of Chase Home Inspections you are hiring a seasoned professional who has vast training and experience in the building industry.

    I spent many of my earlier years as a carpenter.  I know the pride it takes to do a construction job right and the temptation that exists to cut corners.  I worked for ten years as a field inspector for FEMA where I learned how to professionally document field observations of damaged residential dwellings.  I became well versed in local building codes after serving several years as a Knox County Building Inspector.  I am the only full time Knox County home inspector to maintain certification as a State Building Inspector for New Construction. 

    When Tennessee implemented the Home Inspector License Act, I was the 12th inspector in the state to become a licensed home inspector.  In August 2010 I was appointed by the Department of Commerce and Insurance to serve as a member of the Home Inspectors Advisory Committee.   I presently serve with eight other State Licensed Home Inspectors.         

    After 30 years as a home inspector, performing over 8,000 local home inspections I feel confident to fully evaluate your new home and provide you with full disclosure of the present conditions.

Life After Work

I greatly enjoy life here in East Tennessee.   My wife and I are fortunate to run a business that we both find fulfillment in.  You may find me on weekends biking the Green-ways in Knox Co. or paddling the shores of Norris Lake.  I attend Yoga classes at the Y' and on Friday nights you can usually find me at a Mexican Restaurant.  After spending the last 25 years remodeling every room in my home and rebuilding the barn I am now eyeing the unfinished basement.
