The High Country of North Carolina, encompasses seven counties - Alleghany, Ashe, Avery, Mitchell, Watauga, Wilkes and Yancey.  Most people relocate to the area for a dose of peaceful High Country living and choose one of the three B's:  Banner Elk, Blowing Rock or Boone.  Steeped in rich Appalachian history and breathtaking natural beauty, our inspectors relish every drive through the High Country of North Carolina.  


While incredibly beautiful, the mountainous areas of North Carolina contain the highest probability for elevated levels of life threatening radon gas. The only way to know if your home has a radon problem is through proper testing.  Chris Hilton and Associates inspectors are trained and experienced radon testing experts.  

From sprawling mountainside estates to tiny houses, and historic churches to healthcare facilities, we have the home and building inspection experience you are looking for in the High Country of North Carolina.
