Welcome to Burnside Home Inspections!
Hello, I’m Dustin Burnside, the owner of Burnside Home Inspections and a licensed home inspector. It is with deep humility and gratitude that I have the opportunity to share a bit about myself and the values that drive me in providing exceptional home inspection services.
I was fortunate to grow up in a small mountain town with a population of fewer than 2,000 people. From an early age, I developed a fascination with understanding how things worked. Whether it was dismantling old sewing machines at just six years old or competing at state and national levels as a member of the Technology Student Association at the age of 12, my passion for becoming the best home inspector in North Carolina began to take shape.
Beyond my love for engineering balsa bridges, I found joy in hands-on projects. Instead of simply watching TV, I dedicated my time to building a tree fort all by myself at the age of 11. Additionally, I was fortunate to be immersed in the trades through my family. Plumbing, electrical work, and carpentry were skills that every family member was expected to possess. During my high school years, I had the privilege of remodeling an 18th-century farmhouse alongside my father. These experiences instilled in me a deep appreciation for craftsmanship and attention to detail. To this day, I am grateful to have licensed plumbers, electricians, and contractors as close family members, always ready to provide their expertise whenever needed.
My journey took an exciting turn when I served in the U.S. Army as a Paratrooper in the esteemed 82nd Airborne Division. This experience taught me invaluable lessons in discipline, integrity, and dedication to a higher purpose. It is with profound humility that I share my military background, knowing that it has shaped my character and work ethic.
After my honorable discharge, I embarked on a new chapter as a husband, marrying my best friend, Brandi. Together, we ventured into the realm of personal and professional growth.
Driven by a thirst for knowledge and a desire to serve, I pursued higher education at the Reeves School of Business at Methodist University. The four-year program was not without its challenges, but I persevered, graduating Magna Cum Laude. Completing their MBA program later. This educational foundation in business has equipped me with the skills necessary to deliver exceptional service and effective communication to my valued clients.
In my unwavering pursuit of excellence, I sought training at Inspection Certification Associates (ICA), a reputable institution renowned for its comprehensive home inspection curriculum. Under the guidance of Steve Prein, a respected industry expert, I earned my certification as a home inspector. I am humbled to be associated with ICA, which is recognized as a trusted source for Home Inspection Training and Certification in North America.
As a licensed home inspector, I approach each inspection with humility and a genuine commitment to maintaining an exceptional reputation. My utmost priority is to serve you with respect, honesty, and fairness, reflecting the principles I hold dear.
At Burnside Home Inspections, I firmly believe that being a great home inspector goes beyond technical expertise. It requires a sincere dedication to your needs and a genuine desire to empower you with knowledge about your potential new home. I am here to support you through this significant investment, ensuring that you feel confident and informed every step of the way.
When you choose Burnside Home Inspections, you can expect personalized service and a commitment to excellence. I am always available to address any questions or concerns you may have, even beyond the inspection itself. Additionally, I maintain strong connections with licensed plumbers, electricians, and contractors, ensuring that if any further expertise or assistance is needed, I can provide reliable referrals.

I would be remiss if I didn’t acknowledge the role of faith in my life. As a Christian, I am guided by principles of compassion, humility, and service. These values underpin everything I do, and they shape the way I interact with my clients and conduct myself in my profession. It is my sincere desire to treat each client with the utmost respect and to serve you with genuine care and kindness.
