About us

Lowcountry Home Inspection was started by Lewis White and Kevin Westendorff  in 1989 to fill the need for Buyers and Realtors in search of a competent Home Inspector with a construction background. In business for 25+ years, Lowcountry Home Inspection, Inc. has done 10,000+ inspections.

Background: The creation of Lowcountry Home Inspection was a natural fit for Lewis and Kevin. They both were in the construction industry for some 15 years prior to forming the inspection firm. Additionally, they were SC Licensed Residential Builders since the mid '80s and have built everything from starter homes, to condos and apartment complexes, to custom beach homes, and historic renovations in downtown Charleston. Their experience in building construction and codes provides the foundation from which they draw knowledge and form opinions. These attributes, in combination with their excellent communication skills, have made them the most recognizable and sought after authority in the coastal South Carolina Home Inspection industry.

Both Kevin and Lewis are founding members of the South Carolina Association of Home Inspectors (SCAHI) where they each served as President, and the South Carolina Chapter of the American Society of Home Inspectors (SC ASHI).  As members of both organizations and participating in required Continuing Education, Kevin and Lewis have set themselves apart by staying on top of changes in construction and Home Inspection best practices.
