I have been recommending Dan Williams and HouseMasters for years, and finally have the opportunity to be on the consumer side of the inspection. I am very happy with the detail and attention Dan brings to his reports, as well as the professionalism demonstrated in all the reports and documents provided by the company. I recommend Dan and Janet for Home Inspections and Mold Certification without hesitation. I believe they are the best in the business!
