Get to know David Valley
My inspection standards are always amongst the highest in the industry and meet or exceed every standard set by the Master Inspector Certification Board (Home of the best Board Certified inspectors in the world), Commonwealth of Massachusetts and NACHI (National Association of Certified Home Inspectors). I have the extensive training and experience to accurately assess the condition of any home, and I possess the communication skills to clearly describe the inspection results to you. Through my commitment, experience, and expertise, I will establish and personalize a business relationship with you that will last for as long as you own your home. I am also offering infrared inspections (also known as Thermal imaging) to those who are interested. Infrared inspections is basically a non-invasive predictive maintenance technique that uses an infrared imaging and measurement camera to "see" and "measure" thermal energy emitted from surfaces within a building.
I will slowly and methodically walk you through your prospective home and fully educate you on all of its features in order for you to fully understand your property. I will assess those areas where upgrades or replacements may be necessary and screen for those costly defects and safety issues that could lead to serious problems in your future living conditions. I'll locate and identify those problem areas that need attention now and (at the same time) you'll have the opportunity to ask me questions while we view and consider the object of your investment together.
As an added Bonus; along with every Massachusetts Home Inspection report, I will include a complimentary 64 (sixty-four) page home maintenance manual "Know Your Home" (that I have personally written myself) for every one of my clients. This guide contains invaluable information that will fully explain (in detail) almost every concern that you may encounter, pertaining to your newly purchased property. This comprehensive manual has all the answers and is a must for every Massachusetts homeowner.
Before you invest hundreds of thousands of dollars in a Massachusetts Home; be sure you hire Massachusetts Home Inspections to verify that your home does not contain major defects and to minimize the risk of any future complications which could potentially cost you thousands of dollars after you move in.
I am a Certified Master Inspector, State licensed; Nationally Certified and Fully Insured. I can and will reduce the risk of any major or expensive surprises that may happen after you take ownership of your new Massachusetts home.
