Personal Attention

We treat the inspection as an educational process. You are encouraged to attend the inspection so you have the best understanding of the house. Your questions are welcome at any time during or after the inspection. You should feel comfortable with your investment. If you ever have any questions about your home, feel free to call us at any time. There’s no charge as long as we can answer by phone or e-mail without a return trip to the home.

Our goal is to provide you with a thorough inspection and comprehensive written report you can use to identify defects, recommend effective solutions and to help you develop a long-term preventive maintenance strategy for your home.


DLM Home Inspection was started in 2010 by Mike Cummins. With nearly 4,000 home inspections completed and 25 years experience in the management of capital improvement projects for single family, multi-family, and commercial renovations, we have had the opportunity to encounter and develop effective solutions to many types of issues found in most homes and buildings. We can apply that experience to the inspection of your home or building.
