About Us


Tennessee Valley Home Inspection is a family owned and operated company serving North Georgia and it’s surrounding areas. The father and son team of Roger and Nolan Scott created TVHI because real estate, construction engineering, and architecture are interests they hold near and dear to their hearts.

Having the foundation to share our knowledge with home buyers, sellers, and agents alike is a truly rewarding experience. Providing professional, technical, and understandable information needed to safeguard your property investments isn’t simply our job, it’s our passion.

Our Story

Roger Scott has spent his career in the construction industry. He founded his own licensed construction company (Tennessee Valley Contractors) in 1975, which specialized in home renovations, new custom homes, and commercial projects. In 1995 he joined the commercial firm of Dayton Showcase as a project superintendent on big box retail stores such as Belk and Parisian. After eight years on the road it was time to come back home, at which point he became a Building Inspector for the City of Chattanooga. After twelve years as a commercial and residential state certified inspector with the city, he took his retirement and decided to go into business with his son. Sadly Roger passed away in 2019, but his legacy lives on in his teachings, trade, and the businesses he helped create.

Nolan Scott has also worked in the industry for the last decade and has direct experience in home remodeling, finish carpentry, and resident job site management. As a landlord, he understands the home buying process and what to avoid when considering the purchase of residential properties. He possesses degrees in both Construction Engineering and Computer Aided Drafting Technology, and is a Master’s of Management graduate.
