Right off the bat Dave was very thorough and professional while answering all of my questions while explaining the positives and negatives of his findings. All the while, telling me how to correct the negatives, sometimes even recommending people who could do the repairs. I most certainly I am pleased with the inspector.

ric does inspections in a manner that is not traumatic or filled with drama which is comforting to a new, young, orbuyer who hasnt purchased in quite some time. he reports the facts in such a way the buyer knows all they have to do is evaluate the info and make their decision in a completely objective way. john nickless
