DC Inspections Inc – Evolution

Why incorporate DC Inspections Inc? Unlike many other people in similar businesses, the motive behind being an inspector and forming the inspection company, Dc Inspections Inc, was not to create a job but was an evolution. The evolution came from being asked by realtors or acquaintances to look over a residential or commercial building as a favor and provide an opinion. This was fine but not demanding enough to leave engineering / construction or the building / facilities management business. 
The real push came about ten years ago when Don’s daughter  and her husband purchased a home in central Florida. The purchase was made without asking dad to look it over because dad is many times to out spoken or blunt. The home was only one year old and was built by the owner occupant. Six months after moving in, Don’s wife asked Don if he would take time to look at some problems with his daughter’s home. A problem wasn’t the word and the initial investigation could not reveal what we were unable to see. No recourse to the sellers, they were gone and divorced, and the money was gone. Add to the complications the county could not find records, drawings, inspection reports etc.

DC Inspections Inc – Is Born

The only choices were to walk away or roll up our sleeves and attack this problem riddled home head on. Out came the drawing board and construction equipment and seven years of weekends and holidays with limited use of outside sub contractors.  Now  what  was once a disaster is a show place in which they still live in today.
To help others avoid a similar nightmare became and still is the primary mission of DC Inspections Inc.
