About DBI Building Inspections

DBI Building Inspections was founded to assist homebuyers with the information they need to make their purchase decisions. We serve Pierce, King, Kitsap, Thurston, Mason, and Lewis Counties.

DBI Building Inspections belong to and follow the Standards of Practice of the American Society of Home Inspectors (ASHI) — the toughest certification in the business. Recently there have been several other home inspection groups offering nearly instant credentialing. But none of them have the track record or the exacting standards of ASHI. DBI Building Inspections meets, and often exceeds, ASHI Standards, so you’re sure to receive a quality inspection.

Buying a home can be an emotional experience for the buyer. At DBI Building Inspections, it’s our job to make an objective, unemotional assessment of the home to make sure you’re making the right choice based on a different set of criteria. We’ll review the foundation, mechanical systems, plumbing, electrical—covering every detail, top to bottom. Then we’ll provide a thorough and concise assessment, which includes the inspection as well as maintenance and repair summary.

You’ll walk away with a more complete picture of the home you’re in love with, so you can make an informed choice now—as well as educated maintenance decisions down the road. With DBI Building Inspections, you’ll feel confident that you received a high value service for your hard-earned money.
