Home Inspection Experts, LLC
My wife and I are currently in the process of closing on a house and really needed an inspector (quickly too). We had searched around and found Don through Yelp. We were pretty impressed with the previous reviews and what had really lured us was the amount of detail from the photos he had posted. We had called him on a Saturday night right around the end of business hours. He called us back the very next day to go over what we would like, what it was going to cost, how the whole thing works. We needed a house inspection and a well inspection done and we needed it within 5 days per our contract. Don was nice enough to accommodate the time constraints. We ended up scheduling it for the following Monday with no issues. From what I had read, Don is a very punctual person and tends to show up early to sites. I ended up showing to the site 30 minutes in advance and sure enough, Don was right behind me. He started taking photos of the property right away and spoke with me about what he was going to do and what to expect. He began saving time on the entire inspection by starting early and working on the perimeter of the property while we waited for the real estate agent. Once she showed up, he explained EXACTLY what he was going to do, where he's going to check, what he's checking for, and he mentioned he would regularly update me throughout the process. Sure enough, he got right to work and checked every crack, slit, spot, you name it. He was checking things I wouldn't have even thought of! He was willing to crawl through tight spaces, hop on the roof and get his hands dirty. He was well prepared, well mannered, and a very personable person. He was extremely thorough with the inspection and went above and beyond my expectations. He updated me regularly with what was wrong, how it could affect the house and what I could do to fix it (if it was even a concern). In the end, he was willing to work with me and made sure I was on the same page and understood the pros and cons with everything he was inspecting. He was even willing to note positive comments about the house, though unnecessary. The inspection was a breeze and he definitely put my wife and I at ease. He kept to his word and managed to have the report ready to view online within 24 hours. His prices are fairly competitive with most other inspectors. I couldn't recommend Don any higher! If you're looking for a thorough, quality inspector with integrity, don't pass him up. He's a hard working businessman and I would hire him for any future inspection without any hesitation whatsoever!
I would highly recommend Don as your Home Inspector. He is very knowledgeable, professional and has a delightful personality. I feel satisfied with the inspection he recently did for me. I am comforted to know that the home I have bought is safe and secure. Need a house inspected? Call Don, you will not be disappointed! !
Don was punctual, friendly, upbeat, and never failed to share what he found immediately. Don is also considerate in his willingness to share findings, appropriate steps to take to correct any incompatibilities, and also in sharing advice from experience with both me, the buyer, and my agent. True and honest professional.
My husband and I are first time home buyers and have felt all the stress that goes along with that! We called Don Gardner for our home inspection (even though this is a new construction) we wanted piece of mind knowing we are buying a quality home! Don was very professional and knowledgeable. He took our stress away of knowing we are purchasing a great home. I would most definitely recommend him to anyone!

Don came on short notice to evaluate a problem in my home. He is throrough, professional, and knowledgeable. He has the experience and background to know what to look for. Great guy and very professional report. I highly recommend him. Thank you Don!
Don was very thorough, and I was amazed by his ability to get into the 12 x12 crawl space into the attic, that was located in a cupboard. He made me feel very confident I had made a good decision to purchase the house.
Don is very professional and was great to work with. He was very thorough and took extra time to explain things and answer all my questions. His report was informative and detailed. I would use his services again.
Don di great work for our home inspection. He was very thorough and followed up quickly for the report. I would recommend him to any home inspection.
Working with Don Gardner was an excellent experience. Don arrived early, was very professional and very thorough. He was considerate and was very helpful and informative. I received the report of his findings on the home inspection the very next morning. I will definitely request his services in the future.
Great experience. Very detailed. Don is the guy you want to hire. He's honest, thorough, upbeat, will listen to your concerns, and provide excellent advice. Glad I chose him.
Don is a true professional and expert in his field. He was also courteous and prompt with his follow up report. He did an excellent job of explaining any concerns both at the house and in his report. I can recommend him without reservation. Lance and Pam Baumann
Don was very thorough. We are very happy and confident that he went over the home and found any problems. We would definitely recommend Home Inspection Experts.
Don was outstanding. I asked him to look at a home that was owned by a hoarder with at least 2 dozen dogs. It was worse than your mind could imagine. If you weren't walking around the items left, you were climbing over them. The smell required the use of a mask. Room from room Don took down his data. I was amazed at his drive to go above the call of duty to give me the "bottom Line" on this home. When he was done, we sat down and he broke the home down room by room: structure, electrical, plumbing, roof, ETC. "As long as Don is available, I will never use another Inspector. He exceeded my every expectation of him. It's simply, in his nature to do it right and with honor". Call Don, first. One of the best calls you will make in your home buying process. - Randy
Excellent! Don is professional and extremely knowledgeable. Very prompt and quick with your written report. Steve P. Gig Harbor, WA
I was recently referred to Don, from my real estate agent, to inspect an investment property 4-plex I have in escrow. Don is thorough, professional, easy to contact, and his rates are very competitive. He answered all my questions in great detail and easy to understand terms. It was a genuine pleasure working with Don and Home Inspection Experts.
My husband and I used Don to get our home inspected prior to purchasing it. We were very pleased with his professionalism, his thoroughness and his courtesy. We would highly recommend his services to anyone that needs a home inpector.
Fantastic! Highly recommend Don for home inspections. Very professional, knowledgeable, courteous, fast turnaround with finished report. You won't find anyone better.
I goggled home inspection and found Don at Home Inspection Experts. I sent an email asking about his service and was pleasantly surprised when he promptly responded. At our appointment, Don was very punctual, arriving before I did. He was very friendly. We met outside the location where he explained the process of the inspection. He allowed me to ask as many questions as necessary. I felt very confident in his ability to get the job done and that he did..He was all over the place, under the house on the roof.....I loved it! I'm so happy I found him....I would hire him again with no hesitation.
Don was professional, courteous, informative, and thorough. A genuinely nice guy I'd trust to do further home inspections and pass on to family and friends to do theirs as well.
Don was great! Came out very short notice, was very knowledgeable, and was extremely helpful. We were so happy to have him on our side!
