Thinking of buying a home?

Get the peace of mind that comes with inspecting the home that you are buying. A professional home inspection by David Wood can disclose major defects and can save you thousands of dollars in repairs and maintenance. Approximately one out of five homes will have at least one major defect. These defects are often missed by the buyer and unknown even to the seller.
