My husband and I were were so pleased with Doug and his work. We really felt as if we could not have found a better home inspector. We loved the attention to every detail and the awesome report that was both printed and email to us. More than anything it was really comforting to have an inspector that was joyful about his job. As a first time home buyer, he really gave me the tools needed to make a informed choice on whether or not to buy this home. Keep up the good work and keep that joy because it truly is contagious. - Jasmine and Dwight Drinkard
