I have been a self-employed general contractor, specializing in high-end residential additions, kitchens and bathrooms. I have a thorough knowledge of how homes are built, and I also know how all the different parts function and work together as a whole. This level of background and experience gives me more insight into the quality of the construction of your home. While older homes cannot be held to the same code standards as new homes, I am familiar with the codes and what would make sense for your home.
David Mitchell did multiple tests as part of our home purchase inspection and repeated them when needed to assess the overall effects of mold remediation. He was punctual, clear with explaining his results and answered all of our questions. We now consider him a trusted source for information on air quality issues. In addition, he did the whole home inspection and went through every issue with us point by point and then supplied us with a detailed description and grading with picture documentation.
Fantastic home inspection experience! David is knowledgeable and educative about all home systems. He walked our clients through items that are defective and safety hazards as well as providing a general home orientation (where shut off values are, water main location, how to change the HVAC filter, etc). He encouraged our clients to follow him throughout the inspection and to ask questions along the way. He is helpful in providing possible solutions and estimated costs of repairs to defective items as well as giving an idea of replacement costs and when to budget for items in the future. He was meticulous and thorough, provided detailed description write ups and lots of photos in his report. And to boot, he is just on awesome human being. We continue to recommend David to our clients and they continue to apprecate him.
I hired Dave to perform the home inspection for my first home purchase. When I was getting quotes, Dave answered his phone immediately and helped me even though he was busy. His website for information and scheduling is intuitive and easy to use, and provides an easy to access portal for all the important documentation you need to review, sign, and retain. His prices are in-line with other inspectors in the region, based on the numerous quotes I got. I chose Dave specifically because of our positive interaction on the phone. He will get in touch with your realtor and keep them in the loop on the inspection. When we met at the property he was prompt and prepared and talked me through the process. As we went through the house he took tons of photos and he talked about things in a way that met my level of understanding. After the walk through, we reviewed the results and he sent us a report promptly with photos and descriptions of issues. He was quick to follow up on any questions we had, and generally went above and beyond for us. As a first time home-buyer the process can seem a little daunting, and Dave did an excellent job being patient and explaining things. I highly recommend Dave if you’re looking for a home inspection.
