Trim includes corner boards, window and door casings, rake boards, frieze boards, and soffit and fascia boards. If it isn’t siding, it’s trim. Here is a photo of a standard double-hung window with rotted windowsills and trim. This house, built in 1996, has rot on every single window and door frame.

This black streaking on the roof caused by a type of mold is preventable by protecting the roof with the metal fragments embedded in new roofing shingles.

Name the movie! We know you keep hearing it, but it's so important to wash your hands (not just right now, but all the time!).

It is not required for anyone to be at a home inspection, except the home inspector. Social distancing is easily accomplished and the inspector can make many accommodations. We are still working and glad to help you with your home inspection needs.

About The Home Inspection

Congratulations on Your New Home! 

Buying a home is one of the most important purchases you will ever make. The home buying process is filled with many decisions. When you buy a house, you should be able to expect a safe, sound, and secure home for you and your family to enjoy. 

Here at D&M Home Inspection Company, I assure my clients that you can trust me as your certified inspector to bring personalized, exceptional service and expert knowledge encouraging smart decisions and peace of mind in your home buying experience. You can count on my knowledge and over 30 years of experience in the construction field. I do not benefit financially from the sale or repairs of any home. My inspections are dependable, honest and sincere. 

I encourage my clients to follow me through the inspection. In this way, I can point out issues and help you to distinguish whether an item is routine maintenance or a costly repair. I work for you and treat every inspection as if one of my family members was making the purchase. 

How Much Does A Home Inspection Cost? 

Quality you’d expect at prices you wouldn’t. I offer affordable pricing and my goal is to provide the best value in the neighborhood. 

My home inspection rates for towns in Northeastern Massachusetts (within a 25 mile radius from our office in Boxborough, MA) currently start at $525 for homes up to 1500 square feet and include a full narrative style report with photographs, a free pest inspection ($125 value) and a free visual mold inspection (I am also a certified mold remediation contractor.) 

Radon, water, and mold testing are available for an additional charge that includes lab fees.

Cost should not be the only factor in deciding whether to have a home inspection, or in the selection of your home inspector. The sense of security and knowledge gained from an inspection is well worth the cost, and the lowest-priced inspector is not necessarily a bargain. Use the inspector’s qualifications, including experience, training, and professional affiliations as a guide.

Do not get fooled by a low introductory price. Always get the total price for a COMPLETE home inspection and factor in the inspector’s qualifications and experience. A highly qualified Home Inspector can save you thousands of dollars on the purchase price of your home by uncovering defects that a less experienced inspector might miss.

The Report 

After inspecting the home, I return to my office and prepare a professional narrative report to document the inspection findings. The report is easy to read, and the embedded photographs help you comprehend the significance of each area of concern. 

Why You Should Not Perform Your Own Home Inspection 

Even the most experienced homeowner lacks the knowledge and expertise of a professional home inspector who has inspected hundreds, perhaps thousands of homes. An inspector is familiar with the elements of home construction, their proper installation, and maintenance. They know how the home’s system and components are intended to function together, as well as why they fail. 

Above all, most buyers find it difficult to remain completely objective and unemotional about the home they really want, and this may affect their judgment. For accurate information, it is best to obtain an impartial third-party opinion by an expert in the field of home inspection.
