Welcome to D.A.D. Home Inspections
My name is David Delzeith and I am the owner and operator of D.A.D. Home Inspections. Thank you for
choosing D.A.D. Home Inspections to serve your home inspection needs.  Buying a home is probably one of
the biggest investments you are going to make in your lifetime.  Everyone knows that home ownership is the
American dream.  That dream can quickly become a nightmare, however, for uninformed buyers.  Even newly
constructed homes can harbor costly mistakes that may not be visible to the untrained eye.
The training I have completed to become a certified home inspector, along with my 20+ years of experience in
construction, allows me to provide you with an accurate and detailed inspection report.  I am a member of the
National Association of Certified Home Inspectors (NACHI).  My thorough home inspection takes about 3 to 4
hours to complete, unlike some inspectors who take only 2 hours or less just looking around.
I encourage you to follow along with me during the inspection process, where safety permits, so that I may
point out and help educate you on specific areas of interest.  After your home inspection is complete and you
have read over your report, I will answer any questions you may have.  My services do not end when your
receive your report.

Inspectors
D.A.D. Home Inspections is independently owned and operated, not a big franchise.  I am impartial and work
only for you.  My job is to provide you with a comprehensive, fair, independent, objective evaluation so that
you can understand and take care of your valuable investment.  Your interests are my interests before,
during, and after the inspection.
The inspection provides an invaluable learning and discovery experience during which your questions can be
answered on the spot.  You will gain insight into maintenance and energy conservation tailored specifically to
your home.  I wholeheartedly encourage your to accompany me during the inspection.  In addition, all of my
clients are offered free telephone consultation after the inspection.
Choosing the right home inspector can be difficult.  Unlike most professionals, you probably will not get to
meet me until after you hire me.  Furthermore, different inspectors have varying qualifications, equipment,
experience, reporting methods, and yes, different pricing.  One thing for sure is that a home inspection
requires work, a lot of work.  Ultimately a thorough inspection depends heavily on the individual inspector's
own effort.  If you honor me by permitting me to inspect your new home, I guarantee that I will give you my very
best effort.  This I promise you.

What Really Matters
Imperfections.  These are nice to know about.  However, the issues that really matter will fall into four
categories:

1.  Major defects.  An example of this would be a structural failure.
2.  Things that lead to major defects.  A small roof-flashing leak, for example.
3.  Things that may hinder your ability to finance, legally occupy or insure the home.
4.  Safety hazards, such as an exposed, live buss bar at the electric panel.

Anything in these categories should be addressed.  Often a serious problem can be corrected inexpensively
to protect both life and property (especially in categories 2 and 4).
Most sellers are honest and are often surprised to learn of defects uncovered during an inspection.  Realize
that sellers are under no obligation to repair everything mentioned in the report.  No home is perfect.  Keep
things in perspective.  Do not kill your deal over things that do not matter.  It is inappropriate to demand that a
seller address deferred maintenance, conditions already listed on the seller's disclosure of nit-picky items.
