iNACHI CERTIFIED #03061206 - International Association of Certified Home Inspectors is the world's largest most elite home inspection association in the world. Annual Inspector testing and continued education is a prerequisite. Visit their massive website at www.NACHI.org

MASSACHUSETTS HI LICENSE #566 - I currently meet all State approved Home Inspector educational requirements and qualifications. I'm fully approved by the Massachusetts Board of Home Inspectors.

FLIR (ITC) CERTIFIED BUILDING SCIENCE & LEVEL 1 THERMOGRAPHER - I have participated in a thorough applications training curriculum leading to certification in Infrared Building Science through the Infrared Training Center (ITC). I am a professional Thermographer who has a solid understanding of heat transfer laws, thermal dynamics and the various properties of Thermal imaging. VERIFY CERTIFICATIONS

PAST EXPERIENCE - I have performed over 3,000 Home Inspections throughout the State of Massachusetts and New Hampshire with over 3,000 very satisfied clients. Prior to inspecting homes, I spent over 20 years traveling around the world managing and supervising government construction projects. This included numerous overseas assignments where we refurbished many U.S. government buildings. I've traveled throughout the world to various Countries supervising foreign laborers in rebuilding the interior office spaces of our United States Embassies (SEE MY TRAVELS TO THIS DATE). I have gained vast construction knowledge and expertise that my home inspection clients will always appreciate and trust.

HOURS OF OPERATION - I am available Seven days a week - Dawn till Dusk. For those who work days, I will have open slots for early evening inspections also. If there's sufficient daylight for me to complete the exterior portion of the home, I'll gladly fit you into my early evening schedule.

ALWAYS ON TIME - I'll always arrive at your prospective home a 1/2 hour early. I'll complete your exterior inspection and reporting and I'll be waiting for you when you arrive. I'll then walk you through every nook and cranny of the entire property.

ACTUAL TOUR GUIDE - You will literally walk through your prospective home right alongside me. You and I will be there to learn as much as possible about the condition of the property and to jointly engage in the discovery process. This will be the ultimate time for you to obtain the answers to the questions that you may have, regarding the house. Once we finalize the Home Inspection, you will ultimately have a better understanding of the property that you have chosen.

HIGH TECH EQUIPMENT - I refuse to simply guess on any of my findings. I continue to utilize an advanced high tech Infrared (thermal imaging) camera as an optional service, and I carry a tool bag that is chock full of instruments, such as natural gas and carbon monoxide leak detectors, temperature sensors, numerous digital meters which include several moisture meters and an array of lasers, in order to confirm any of my findings throughout your prospective home.

SAME DAY REPORT - You will receive your highly detailed comprehensive inspection report immediately following your home inspection (Same day Report). My reports are highly detailed, legible and very easy to read and understand. Your 17-page inspection report will be categorized into components in order for you to locate specific details right away. My report is much better than those narration reports which require you to thumb through every page in order to locate specific issues that were noted.

FREE HOMEOWNERS GUIDE - You will receive a comprehensive 64 page manual (written by myself) that contains important facts, tips and safety concerns regarding your new home. I've integrated many useful maintenance tips to help you keep your home and mechanical's in great shape for many years to come. At the rear pages of this manual you'll find a "Life Expectancy list" of just about every component in your home.

Ratings & Reviews

David was awesome! As a first time home buyer I was so happy after David completed our home inspection. He arrived early and began outside inspection of the home. He was extremely clear and was willing to share and teach us about elements of the home. David gave me pointers and recommendations for things I wanted to renovate even though that's beyond the scope of inspection. I was so pleased and felt amazing after the home inspection with him.

I used David Valley for the first time to inspect a piece of commercial property. He was the only certified inspector in the area that was able to book a site visit with only a few days' notice. David was very methodical in checking structural integrity and examining the plumbing and electrical work. He explained exactly what had to be upgraded, what was or wasn't up to code and patiently answered all of my questions. He was able to troubleshoot several issues just by sight, including improperly installed roof drainage that was directly contributing to water and mold in the basement. The report David generated was critical for my investors and we ultimately passed on a money pit that seemed like a great deal until he got under the surface. I will definitely be using David at Massachusetts Home Inspections again!  More Less

Dave was professional, thorough, helpful, and a pleasure to work with. He made himself available for questions after the inspection when some issues came up, and didn't mind explaining each item in detail.
