Home Inspections in the Portland Area
“Dave provided a very thorough home inspection, and because of him my wife and I were able to identify several issues which we needed to know before purchasing our home. Dave took the time to go over each item with me, and he answered my questions with honesty and in plain language. We had the official report from him that same night, and all for an extremely competitive price. As an architect, I really appreciate his professionalism and thoroughness. His online booking system was also very convenient and because of it we were able to book quickly and painlessly. I whole heartedly recommend Front Porch Home Inspection to anyone needing his services. Thanks, Dave!”
“I really love working with Dave. He is not only thorough but does a great job of accommodating buyers and our clients when they are at the home inspection asking questions. On one very hot day, he offered to re-inspect the attic after a client had a few more questions. Additionally, his reports are very detailed and give you the option to pull out only those items that need repair/credit costs. This has saved me so much time and is a great organizational tool! I would recommend Dave highly.”

“Thank you Dave!! Thank you for your thorough inspection of our future home and shop. The information you were able to provide us allowed us to counter offer and save money for doing repairs. I was amazed at the amount of time you spent inspecting all areas of our future home including the attic and crawl space which nobody enjoys. Thank you also for coming so far to do our inspection. I will definitely recommend you to everybody I know.”

He took time to answer our questions and it was clear he was very knowledgeable about the home inspection. The report was thorough and informative and easy to understand. I would definitely recommend Front Porch.”
“Thank you, Dave, for doing just what the buyer has hired you to do….. making them aware of what they are purchasing…… making them aware of any flaws or issues that you can see as well as offering suggestions to help ease the clients’ minds! I highly recommend you and have already been referring you to my peeps. Thank you again.”

The Home Inspection Report
Buyers and agents regularly comment about the clarity, organization, and thoroughness of their home inspection reports, and how they stand out above the competition. I realize that you may be unfamiliar with a lot of the language and terminology related to home building, so I put a lot of effort into clearly communicating what you’re looking at in the report. Lots of photos are included to help visually describe any issues needing to be addressed and recommendations are made for the best follow up action to take. Reports are always delivered within 24 hours or sooner, and can be viewed either online or downloaded as a pdf. You’ll also have the ability to use the built in Create Request List (CRL) feature to create a repair list or a to-do list directly from the report, a convenient and time saving service that buyers and real estate professionals love. If any questions happen to come up after the inspection, I’m available and happy to help make sure those question are answered.
