Thorough Job!
I had DBI inspect my house. Blaine was great...thorough, patient and willing to talk over concerns and questions I had. He was here 4-5 hours which is a long stint, plus having to write up the report, I thought I got a good deal for my money. Blaine is a dog friendly guy, which gave him points in my book where I have a home with a "bully breed"... Blaine passed no problems. Topped off with him giving part of the payment proceeds to animal related charity, whats not to like?? Thank you DBI for the the pre purchace peace of mind.

Thank you so much Holly for taking the time to leave this amazing review. Dilly is a sweetheart, and it's great to see a rescue dog so well cared for!

We have been very positively impressed with Blaine. We have relied on him to perform three home inspections for us in 6 years, and in every instance, he has completed the job with great thoroughness and dedication to detail. He is always very prompt and prepared. He is also very knowledgeable. He has good communication skills, and he welcome questions. If we purchase any more homes, we hope that Blaine will be able to perform the inspection for us.

Thorough and reasonably priced
I met Blaine at the condo building and he gave me an overview of the process as well as a detailed agreement to review and sign. The inspection included a careful examination of the outside of the building as well as the unit itself, which I appreciated. He was available to answer my questions as well as the questions of the agent, and sent the report and invoice to both of us the very next morning. The whole process was smooth and easy, which is great thing to have when you're going through the long and complex process of buying a home!

Very Thorough / Highly Skilled
Blaine inspected a house we wanted to purchase. I was nervous about which inspector to hire because it's a large and complex property (pond, indoor pool, gardens, additional living structure, wiring done by the owner, etc.). Blaine exceeded my expectations! His experience, attention to detail, and tenacity gave us the information to make an informed decision. I understand that my 5-star rating is another perfect score aligned with everyone else's, but those high marks are accurate. I highly recommend Blaine and will use his services again in the future.

Thorough inspection
We just had the pleasure of having our prospective house inspected by Blaine. He did a very thorough job and the report afterwards was clear, descriptive and offered excellent recommendations. Blaine debriefed us immediately after the inspection and had the report to us the next day. His skill and expertise has made us much more knowledgeable about the status of the home. I can honestly tell you that we won't hesitate to use his services again in the future. Highly recommended!

The highest caliber building inspection
As an out of state owner of a commercial building in Tacoma, I needed an inspector that would be of the highest professional caliber and utmost thoroughness. I was referred to DBI Building Inspections and was completely satisfied. Blaine did outstanding work and produced a very detailed report with many recommendations and heads up about issues that not only need to be handled in the near term, but would also require repair or remediation further out. Blaine was also happy to discuss the report after he sent it out, and answered follow up questions well after the inspection. He was a great source of knowledge, and went above and beyond the scope of work and my expectations. I strongly recommend DBI.

Fantastic Inspection
We were very happy with our inspection that Blaine performed for us. He spent several hours going through our house and was very thorough and knowledgeable. Blaine has a well rounded background on construction, electrical and plumbing. His report helped us with negotiating on our house and making sure that everything was working and in proper shape before we purchased the house. I would strongly recommend DBI Building Inspections if you are getting ready to buy a house.

Very Thorough
We hired Blaine to look at a house we are buying. His inspection was very thorough and covered every area. We appreciated how much time and care was put into each point of his inspection. His service was friendly and it was obvious that he cared about the work he was doing. Absolutely worth it to use this service if you're looking for a home inspection.

Extremely thorough and detailed inspection
I have used Blaine from DBI Inspections on two separate occasions and intend on continuing to use their service on future purchases. The level of detail Blaine goes to is just what I want from an inspector and it makes me feel more confident with the costly decision I am about to make. I would higher recommend using DBI Inspections.

Helpful and Thorough Inspection
Not only did this inspection help us with the purchase of our home, but it gave us a working list of what needs to be done to get and keep our house in great shape. Blaine was very thorough and it was a pleasure to deal with him. He cares about his work and his customers. Sometimes that's hard to find. We highly recommend him.
