ASHI Certified Inspector #244460 NYS License # 16000009710


In March of 2011 my premium home inspection reports averaged 68 pages with 37 photos. Compare this to any of my competitors. Contact me if you are looking for objectivity, value and ethics. I promise to look out for your best interest.


Dave was a consummate professional. He was very prompt and incredibly thorough both regarding the inspection itself as well as the report he provided. I would strongly recommend Dave to anyone looking for an inspector.

Dave did an amazing job, He knows everything! It was a pleasure working with him. You'll never do better than Dave, trust me!
- E.G., April 2017
Dave inspected both of the homes that we've purchased and we'd hire him again without question. Dave is very thorough. He spent about 4 hours onsite, and was available for any questions we had following the inspection. He took his time explaining all issues he'd found - large and small. He is passionate about about his work, home safety, and ensuring that his clients have the information needed to make informed decisions. We shared his report with the home professionals hired to address the issues Dave uncovered and every one was impressed with Dave's knowledge and thoroughness. Our agent also commented that he's the most thorough inspector she's met. He doesn't miss a thing.

Dave; Thank you for taking the time to travel to and inspect Lenny and Kelly's new home! It was greatly appreciated by me and them, as they now have an independent report on their investment to give them peace of mind that the overall condition has been carefully and professionally reviewed. Sincerely, Bill Tierney Nothnagle Realtors
- L.W., October 2015
Thank you so much for explaining everything to me and being so thorough in your report. Being a first time home buyer, you made me feel so much more comfortable with my new house! I will definitely recommend you to anyone I know looking for an inspection! Thank you!
- A.C., June 2015
He is the best inspector a BUYER could hope for. We learned lots from him!
- E.K., December 2014
In short, if you have Dave inspect your home, you won't be able to say "I didn't know", and the sellers won't be able to put anything over on you (our inspection went smoothly, thankfully!) I would not hesitate to recommend Dave to anyone, and I'd use him again if we were ever to buy another house.
- E.B., July 2014
I contracted with Dave as the owner/ seller to better prepare my home for sale. Dave performed a though and detailed inspection, which uncovered many items I, the home owner, was unaware of. Many of the items were minor in scope and esaily corrected. A few were more significant and required out side contractors. The report also provides the rstionale and/ or the building standard why certain items require change or repair. I used Dave's comments during the indpection and report as a guideline to improve my home from a safety and operstional basis. The inspection also gave me a "heads up" on what a buyer might expect when considering a purchase. I was very pleased with Dave's inspection and professional approach. I highly recommend his services either as a home owner/seller or a buyer.
- F.P., June 2014
Very thorough and knowledgeable and is great at explaining why certain things should be done vs have to be done. I highly recommend him

We are very pleased with Dave's level of professionalism. He explained terms in a way that lay persons could understand. Dave was very meticulous evaluating systems in the home. Dave had a common sense approach to problems he for issues he uncovered. Recommendations were supported by standards in both building code, equipment manufacturers and professional journals. Dave is a very intelligent and motivated by standards not often seen today.

Unreal, this report was so specific. Being a first time home buyer and not really knowing the in's and out's of purchasing a safe home, this report gave a great amount of detail and knowledge. This man knows what he is doing and I am so glad that he inspected our home. I feel safer already. Thank you for doing such a wonderful job. Many thanks!

Great job Dave! You were extremely thorough, having gone above and beyond my expectations.

I am confident that you have provided me with the information I will need upon moving into my home. I trust that there will be no surprises waiting, as you left no stone unturned. Thanks!

Dave - Thanks so much for your thoroughness in inspecting our new home at 4300 East Ave. The time you took to inspect our new home coupled with the detailed report you compiled, allowed us to feel completely assured and confident in our purchase. We will definitely be recommending you to family and friends in the future! Barry and Karen Fingar
- B.F., July 2010
Very thorough, prompt and professional. I would definitely recommend you to anyone needing a house inspection. All of the information from the inspection is included in the Report with details, photos, explanations, and links to further information on topics. The only thing that I see that could be done differently would be to make the 'summary report' a simple 1-2 page check list or table of items inspected, with only the code next to them (IN, NI, NP or RR) would be nice to have. But then again, it's probably there and I haven't found it yet! Thank you, Mary
- M.H., July 2010
