Anthony Dawson


I am Tony Dawson, a professional home inspector. 

A home inspection is a great tool when purchasing a new home. A home inspection also comes in handy when you are planning for maintenance or renovation of your existing home! 

During a home inspection, I inspect and analyze the structure from the ground up; then I prepare a thorough, easy to read report on the home, and deliver it to you through the internet in an accessible and easy to share format via 

I offer a variety of additional home inspection related services in addition to a standard home inspection, such as:  water testing, septic testing, and will soon be offering energy audits.

I service all of Northern Lower Pennisula Michigan!

My excellent reputation and long list of satisfied clients attest to my attention to detail, clear communication, honesty and integrity!
Please visit my website, and let me know if I may be of assistance to you!

Tony was very thorough. We were not able to be there for the inspection, but Tony made a point to call us and walk through everything he saw. He was very kind and candid throughout the process. We would strongly recommend his services to others.
- A.H., Maple Grove MN, February 2020
Tony was not only extremely prompt at scheduling my inspection and getting it done but his knowledge was invaluable. He seemed very thorough. I've had a terrible experience with an inspector before which ended up costing me a lot of time and money. I feel confident his inspection explanations and knowledge are accurate. Would I recommend Tony or use him in the future? ABSOLUTELY!

- W.G., Dearborn Heights MI, March 2015
I was able to set up an appointment with Tony right away sense I had requested a short closing date. He was on site immediately and was amazing, he did an in depth inspection that saved me and my wife lot of time, money and headaches. Because of the inspection he pointed out a lot of potential safety issues as well as a failing foundation I had not seen prior to this. He presented a 42 page inspection report with pictures and explanations on all his findings (good and bad). We are not done looking for our dream home yet, and when we find the next one Tony will be our first call to make sure everything is right. Thank you Tony, we will be singing your praises for a long time.

- J.C., Seattle WA, November 2014
He was fast and reliable at a fair price. I would use him again!
- S.S., Huntington Beach CA, November 2014
We called Tony and we had NO problem in setting an inspection date. He did an EXCELLENT job. He took his time and was extremely thorough. He even corrected our real estate agent as to the type of construction the home. Our realtor stated it was a stick home and Tony quickly informed her it was a modular home. I was "impressed". Tony inspected the home from the roof to basement to outside and including the slope of the property. His final inspection report was the best we had ever seen - and my husband and I have purchased four primary residents. The pictures submitted in the final inspection report were outstanding and clear. Each photo he took had an explanation and if any corrections were needed or if the item was functional and very easy to read. The report did not leave us guessing what was being talked about. I recommend Tony highly and will call upon him for any future inspections.
