“Be honest and give people the best quality work you can give.”
- Johnny Kay


Johnny Kay is the owner and Lead Inspector of Arrow Home Inspection. 

As a life-long resident of York County, Johnny began working on his dad's construction crew at a young age, learning lessons that he still uses today: “Be honest and give people the best quality work you can give.” He later graduated from Western Carolina University (BSBA) with major concentrations in Economics and Marketing.


Johnny has proudly served the Charlotte-Metro/York County areas for over two decades providing thorough and quality home inspection services. Having personally experienced the tremendous growth of the Charlotte-Metro area, Johnny has had the opportunity to assist thousands of area residents with their new home purchases.

When you schedule a home inspection with Arrow Home Inspection, Johnny will be the one to schedule the inspection, answer your questions, and most importantly, he will be the one who performs your home inspection. Not a part-time inspector, new trainee or inspector with a few home inspections under his belt, but an inspector with the experience and knowledge gained by having personally performed thousands of home inspections.

The name of Arrow Home Inspection Service was born/derived as a way to incorporate Johnny's hobby of competing on the national archery circuits. Archery demands precision and accuracy as does the home inspection business. Discipline and consistency incorporated shot after shot, inspection after inspection, provides win after win. We can help guide you during, most likely, the biggest expenditure of your life by providing accurate, detailed information in a friendly environment. 


Our Commitment to Quality

In addition to his many years of home inspection experience, Johnny Kay is also a Certified Home Inspector. This means he has passed written examinations testing his knowledge of residential construction, defect recognition, inspection techniques, and report-writing, as well guaranteeing he adheres to Standards of Practice and Code of Ethics.
