Introduction: I am a nationally trained, licensed and certified professional inspector. I originally started inspecting homes in Florida, which requires 120 hours of education and training, passing a national exam, maintain GL insurance, and continuing education. Utah and California currently, doesn't require these. However, I keep my Florida license active, so if and when Utah moves to a license required state, I can transfer my license easily. When choosing a home inspector, keep in mind- this is most likely the largest investment you’re going to make. When I first started inspecting homes (ten plus years, and over 3,000 inspections ago), I was the cheapest- I had very little field experience and needed clients. That how it starts. Just remember, an inspector with more experience is an inspector that can provide more accurate and valuable information, and give you more peace of mind! I am a member of NACHI, and stay current and trained with all aspects of home inspecting, to provide you with the best possible service. I love providing clients with information about their potential purchase. A home is usually the single largest investment a person will make. I love providing valuable information about the condition of the home and its systems, so my clients can make an informed decision about their purchase.

Home Inspection

Working with PPI was a very smooth process. I reached out and heard back from Darren within a few minutes which was great because we needed to get our inspection done quickly. I could tell he did a thorough job in his inspection and left feeling confident with the purchase of our home. Thanks again!

Home Inspection

Having worked with multiple home inspectors I can confidently say Darren is the best of the best. Darren is punctual, affordable, and very knowledgeable. I’m always impressed by his findings (even after trying to inspect myself) and he is always so willing to provide suggestions on how he would go about making improvements or fixes to any home, be it owner occupied or an investment. Darren is my absolute go to inspector and would recommend him to anyone

Home Inspection

Doing business with PPI was easy and a pleasant experience. I would 100% use PPI again. We were buying a home out of state. He did a great job of providing a thorough inspection and providing us with helpful pointers on care and maintenance. He walked through the home with me through a video call and made sure to address all concerns or questions that I had. Even silly ones like how quiet is the garage door when it opens.

Home Inspection

Working with Darren was great! He conducted the inspection and gave us a very detailed report that helped us have a better conversation with the house seller. He was always there for us when we had questions and would definitely recommend him to anyone interested in having a good inspection report.

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    My prices are within the average range for my area, and are based on the square footage of the home. I have a few levels of pricing, depending on your budget. While I strive to be competitively priced, I like to emphasize, that less expensive is NOT always the best choice. Sometimes you really do get what you pay for! For more details on my pricing, and the different levels/types of inspections I provide, please visit my website.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I am completely adaptable and "First-time-home-buyer" friendly! I start off by informing the client, what to expect, and how the inspection process works. I also encourage them to write down any questions, or concerns they have, prior to the inspection, so I can make sure to answer them. My relationship does not end with the customer, at the end of the inspection. I emphasize that I am a continuing resource, for any questions they may have in the future (no charge). As well, ALL my inspections include a re-inspection, at anytime within the 12 months following the initial inspection. This is a great resource for those clients that opted for a home warranty, and is a great time to pinpoint any items that need to be addressed prior to the expiration of that warranty.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I was formally trained at the Ed Klopfer School in Florida, which requires completing a 120 hours of instructor based training. Current member, training and certifications, by InterNACHI (National Association of Certified Home Inspectors). Experience includes 20+ years in the construction industry, and over 8 years in the home inspection industry. I have completed more than 3,000 Home Inspections. I am licensed by the state of Florida, which requires passing a NATIONAL INSPECTION EXAM, continuing education, insurance, and fingerprinted background checks (Utah currently does not require any formal training, insurance, or licensing for Home Inspectors).
