About Dana

Owner of Home Inspections by Dana. I started performing inspections part-time in early 1992 while I was a full time carpenter and general contractor. Shortly after becoming a home inspector, I realized I had found my true calling and decided to make home inspections my career.

I custom built inspection form sets for performing home inspections, which include digital/defect photos, defect recognition clipart and color prioritized findings. When performing inspections, some people say "I'm too picky", others say, "They wouldn't recommend anyone else". I take great pride in performing my inspections and love my job. My inspection reports are very detailed and have color prioritized findings so each and every client has a thorough understanding of the condition of the home they're purchasing. The reality is each house tells a story by its own conditions. I document and report the conditions found, and color prioritize the findings in a logical manner to educate each client on the condition of the home they are purchasing. You can rest assured you will get a non-biased "state of the art inspection" from me.
