Why Hire Me For Your Outer Banks Home Inspection?

I perform thorough and accurate home inspections on the Outer Banks of North Carolina in Dare and Currituck Counties. Included is an easy to understand report with color photos and Summary Page. The inspection report will be uploaded to my web site by the end of the day of the inspection and can be accessed with a user name and password via the Internet.

The inspection report will outline systems or components that do not function as intended or affect the habitability of the home as well as those that warrant further investigation by a specialist.

My Qualifications

My name is Doug Mickle and I have a BS degree in Mechanical Engineering from Penn State University.  I had a career in engineering/manufacturing for over thirty years.  Since 2002, I have been a licensed home inspector in North Carolina (#1672) while operating my business, HouseChek Inspections, Inc.  I am a member in good standing of the North Carolina Licensed Home Inspectors Association (NCLHIA), the American Society of Home Inspectors (ASHI) and the Outer Banks Association of Realtors (OBAR).

Choosing an inspector to represent you should be as important as choosing the best interest rate for your mortgage. If you choose wisely, you can save some money. My experience and ability to represent you has been tried and tested over the course of many home inspections. I have inspected many homes and I am extremely sensitive to and capable of finding problems or safety issues throughout the home or building. I use my engineering experience to identify problems and and report them in a manner so that they can be quickly and effectively resolved.

Put my experience and skill to work for you. I recommend my client to be present for the inspection whenever possible.  That way I can point out features and answer questions that they may have about the property.

You deserve the best and the most thorough report.  All of my inspections are documented using a state of the art computerized reporting system complete with digital images and clear direction. I am very interested in providing you with the best possible knowledge about the property. Call me and schedule your inspection today.
