Like all professions or trades however, there are differences between inspectors. The level of detail in both the inspection and the report varies. Advantage Inspection Services is a locally owned, independant inspection company. We offer a full line of professional home inspection services, and have been serving Altoona PA, State College PA, Huntingdon PA, and surrounding area homebuyers since 1998.
Customer service is our highest priority!

All of our inspections are performed in accordance with the American Society of Home Inspectors (ASHI) standards of practice. WWW.ASHI.Com.

Our reports are narrative, and custom written for your house. This is not a checklist!  All of our reports are computer generated and include digital photos of deficiencies for reference.

Take some time to make sure you are hiring someone you can trust, and who will look out for your interests above all others. Visit our web site for additional information:

Dwayne was extremely professional and thorough. He arrived early and took the necessary time to review every aspect of our potential new home. He was knowledgable, kind, and treated the inspection as though it were his own home. We can't recommend Dwayne enough if you are looking for a quality home inspector!

Dwayne is down to earth, and very customer service oriented! Very responsive when trying to schedule any inspections, and will guide you on the things you need to prepare your seller or buyer for, when doing certain inspections! Always early for inspections, and is spot on with inspections! Dwayne is a one stop shop for inspections, you tell him what inspections you need, and he will arrange everything! I would Highly recommend Dwayne!

Thanks. Great job. Was very happy with the investigation and comments of Dwayne. Would ask for him specifically in future inspections if it any were needed.

You cannot get a better inspector than Dwayne Ott. He was through, knowledgable and very pleasant to work with. He insisted on checking every detail of the house we were interested in. I would certainly recommend him to anyone needing an inspection and I would trust his assessment and advice. Thank you Dwayne for being there for us.

Dwayne was professional, easy to talk to, intelligent, and EARLY. He answered all of my questions (first time home buyer, I had numerous questions) and even all of my 'hypothetical questions'. I would recommend Dwayne to anyone, and already have.
- J.S., May 2017
As a buyer, you want to know the home you are about to purchase meets the quality you desire. Dwayne will not leave a leaf unturned. He will do an extremely thorough job and you will have a very detailed report in hand the next morning. You will not be disappointed.

Thanks for being so easy to work with! I appreciate that you are very thorough and take the time to answer any questions I may have and also to explain in detail to my clients! I ALWAYS suggest you when they have no one in mind for an inspector!

Dwayne is a straight shooter and will tell it like it is. I felt very confident that he had my best interest in mind (as the Buyer)

I have to say that I am very satisfied with your inspection report and the quick write-up. It was detailed as much as you could give me and produce a comprehensive overview of the problems, many of which I was aware of and some that we were not. No matter how this case turns out, I am very pleased. My attorney wasted no time in contacting me after receiving your report. In fact it was only a day afterwards. I feel confident that this will give me the ammunition that I needed to win my case. I will be seeing my attorney within the next 9 days and hopefully we will not need you any further. However, I have that feeling that Rick Gieg, my attorney will be contacting you to appear in court. Thank-you so much for your rapid responce . Della Harris.

Very thorough inspection and took time and answered any questions and concerns. Very personable and would recommend/use again if the need arises.

I'm massively impressed by Mr. Ott's professionalism. I would highly recommend him to anyone that wants to ensure they get someone they can trust. Besides responding promptly to all my inquiries, his report was prepared by a skilled technician. Further, he provides post report explanations. Recommend highly. Penny Ann Barr

Dwayne, I had several people tell me that I was wasting my money having the inspection done but I was impressed with your knowledge, thoroughness and the way you kept me informed. I would certainly use you in the future and recommend you to others. Thanks, Rob
