Hiring Discovery Home Inspection, LLC was the best single decision I made in buying a new home. Even a generally solid house has problems and I firmly believe that Mr. Mortensen found them all.
Besides a thorough inspection, Mr. Mortensen was readily available, prompt, and courteous. Additionally, it was perfectly clear from the moment the inspection started that we were not doing the inspection as a formality as he educated me every step of the way about the house. He regarded the house as if it were already my home.
Within 24 hours of the inspection, I received a 22 page PDF file emailed to me with numerous annotated photographs. The report was comprehensive yet perfectly distilled. My realtor simply cut and pasted the health and safety items into a request to the seller. The seller appreciated the clarity and specificity of the requests and accepted all of them.
By the way, I volunteered to offer these comments.

I want to thank you for all your hard work. I didn’t realize how thorough a home inspection could be. I came up from the lower 48 and home inspector’s down there just didn’t do enough for me to feel confident about my purchase. You went everywhere! Thanks again and we'll be sure to call you when we need your professional services again.

Thank you for the inspection and the report. It was very good and quite easy to understand in spite of my limited construction knowledge. I will surely recommend you to all my friends.

I was quite nervous about getting a home inspection, but was relieved after it started. You were very professional and put me at ease from the very beginning. I asked a lot of questions and you answered each and every one. I appreciate your help very much. Thanks again.

I have bought and sold many homes over the years. Dave is without a doubt the most thorough inspector I have ever seen.
His reports are returned fast and the report photos are a great resource even after you've moved into your house.
I have recommended him to my friends and family, and if I ever need a home inspected again, I know who I am calling.

David Mortensen has been doing Home Inspections for our real estate clients for about five years now. We were impressed with Dave from the moment we met him. He is extremely knowledgeable and professional and yet always able to communicate in a way that is understandable and clear to our Buyers. Another asset in using David is his background as a builder/contractor. His reports are completed promptly, usually by the same day, and emailed to us and to the Buyer. Besides all that, he is just an all around nice guy and a pleasure to be around.

I see the services of a qualified home inspector to be valuable for the buyer and seller, as well as, selling licensee and listing licensee. A thorough home inspection not only protects the buyer but it protects the seller. No one likes surprises and a good home inspector like David Mortensen can carefully review the entire property with out jumping to conclusions and set off alarms for span and insignificant items. David is available for follow up questions and re-inspections. My past buyers and sellers have been very satisfied with David Mortensen.
