Doug West

I have been licensed as a Home Inspector since 2012 (Lic.# IOS.0001864-RES), I have performed hundreds of inspections since then. I work diligently to establish great rapport and a strong relationship with local professionals. My mission is to provide a comprehensive and valuable inspection for my clients, which allows them to make an informed decision on one the biggest investments in life, buying a house. I also provide pre-listing inspections for clients who would like to sell their home and seek a knowledgeable and thorough report on the condition of the home, this allows the clients to correct issues that may have gone unseen in order to get the most value out of their home and prevent possible hurdles during the real estate process.

As an ancillary service to home inspections, I am sub-contracted through Hayman Engineering and Harrison Engineering to provide them the information needed to procure Foundation Certifications and other engineer services/certifications. Foundation Certifications are becoming more prominent during the real estate process if potential buyers are financing (especially if financing through FHA or VA), as well as, current homeowners who are refinancing.

I am certified through IAC2 (International Association of Certified Indoor Air Consultants; Cert# IAC2-02-4462) to perform mold inspections which can reveal if mold growth is present, which allows the client to take the necessary steps to prevent damage to the structure and possible health concerns that may be associated with mold exposure.

About:

With experience doing home inspections since 2012, I can take a closer look at the house of your dreams so you can rest assured you are making a well informed decision on one of life's biggest investments.

Mr. West was right on time. The review of the home was right on the money. He deals with detail and finds things that will help the new buyer a easy at mind. I would and will tell any one that needs a home inspection to contact Mr. West. I am from California and buying my first home in Pahrump Nevada and feel much better about my purchase.

We met with Doug yesterday to perform an inspection on our new house. WOW! He was thorough, pleasant, professional and courteous. We were very impressed with him. He doesn't belong in Pahrump, or I should say, we need more people like him in Pahrump. Doug was not afraid to have us stop him and ask him questions. A matter of fact, he welcomed our questions. In less than 24 hours he provided the complete inspection report. He was certainly a pleasure to work with. Thank you Doug

Doug seems to be a "no-nonsense" inspector who objectively does his job! In addition, his keen awareness of potential problems is reflected by the detail (photos and comments) in his report. In fact, he may have saved us from buying a house that turned out to be more of a "fixer-upper" than the house we thought we were buying. How much is that worth??
- R.L., May 2017
