This is our 2nd time working with David, and his service is top quality as always. We wouldn't consider another inspector unless David's not available.
- D.P., September 2021
Absolutely qualified, ethical and with many years of industry experience. David knew what to look for in my home right away.
As a first-time homebuyer I had no idea how many minor fixes needed to be done, but David took the time to explain it to us in a way that we could understand. Great communication skills.
In a nutshell, the service was impeccable from start to finish.
- C.M., Arlington VA, August 2021
David was incredibly informative, thorough, and went above and beyond to explain potential issues and general home maintenance tips. Would highly recommend.
- A.M., Washington DC, October 2020
Very knowledgeable and fair.
- M.R., Churchton MD, January 2020
I cannot recommend David as a home inspector.
He never responds when emailed. I asked a few questions from the inspection and didn't get a response.
Furthermore David missed substantial visible water damage in the master bathroom and never responded when emailed. This was an unexpected $20,000 cost for a new purchase.
- S.R., Washington DC, December 2019
I have used David for years on multiple inspections. I would highly recommend him. This may be the biggest and most important purchase in your life. Make sure you hire the best. David will not let you down.
- M.W., April 2019
David was professional, very knowledgeable and obviously is drawing upon many years of experience having inspected thousands of home. Highly recommended.

I couldn't be happier with the suite of services provided by David Kempton. He is incredibly knowledgeable, has a lifetime of experience, and offers the perfect balance of professionalism and friendliness. My clients always enjoy the experience, and somehow, him being so good always makes me look like a rockstar. If he were driving Uber, it would be 5 stars all day!
- J.W., November 2017
Highly recommend. David was professional and personal at the same time. He outlined key components of the house and made sure I, as the new buyer, was comfortable with the operation and status of each element.
- J.S., Washington DC, July 2017
David was absolutely outstanding
- J.K., Washington DC, April 2017

- T.B., Washington DC, October 2016
Very impressed with David. Highly recommend based on his expertise and positive attitude.
- M.B., Washington DC, February 2016
David, did an absolute fantastic job. He arrived on schedule, explained what the inspection would entail and how he would go about conducting the inspection. As we made our way through the inspection, David pointed out any concerns/issues, and provided details on possible solutions and repair cost.
David was also quite informative during the inspection. He explained in detail how to cut off the water if necessary, which was good to know because our house includes fire sprinklers and a lawn irrigation system. Knowing which water lever shuts off the main water supply versus the other two systems is very important. He also provided information regarding the electrical capacity of our home so that we would know that there is plenty of electrical supply currently in the home to handle practically any addition we decide to do.
David was very easy to work with. He may seem laid back and has jokes, but he's very detailed and knowledgeable. We would highly recommend David.
- K.P., Alexandria VA, June 2015

David Kempton was extremely thorough, professional, knowledgeable and experienced. He paid a lot of attention to detail, explained carefully, and put his observations in the proper perspective. It's very helpful to understand what his findings mean, and hw serious they actually are (or aren't!).
David was pleasant and friendly, and even as an owner of more than three houses, I learned a lot from the inspection.
I certainly recommend his services as a home inspector.
