“When buying our first home, we hired Hugh Kelso twice. The first time, he saved us from an $850,000 mistake. He has a wealth of experience, a passion for home inspecting, curiosity and superb observational skills that definitely make him a cut above the rest.” --Angela Droz & David Domansky
The Toughest Standards in the Industry
DBI was founded to assist homebuyers with the information they need to make their purchase decisions. We serve Pierce, King, Kitsap, Snohomish, Thurston, and Mason Counties.
DBI inspectors belong to and follow the Standards of Practice of the American Society of Home Inspectors (ASHI) — the toughest certification in the business. Recently there have been several other home inspection groups offering nearly instant credentialing. But none of them have the track record or the exacting standards of ASHI. DBI meets, and often exceeds, ASHI Standards, so you’re sure to receive a quality inspection.
Buying a home can be an emotional experience for the buyer. At DBI, it’s our job to make an objective, unemotional assessment of the home to make sure you’re making the right choice based on a different set of criteria. We’ll review the foundation, mechanical systems, plumbing, electrical—covering every detail, top to bottom. Then we’ll provide a thorough and concise assessment, which includes the inspection as well as maintenance and repair summary.
You’ll walk away with a more complete picture of the home you’re in love with, so you can make an informed choice now—as well as educated maintenance decisions down the road. With DBI, you’ll feel confident that you received a high value service for your hard-earned money.
