I am Michael (Mike) Mugford, owner and principal inspector of Downeast Inspection Services, LLC. As a professional home inspector, trained by the American Home Inspector Training Institute (AHIT), licensed by the State of New Hampshire (License #0287), and certified by the National Association of Home Inspectors, (NAHI), you can expect a thorough and knowledgeable property inspection, held to the highest of industry standards, and in terms that you will easily understand.
Early on in my life, I had the opportunity to grow up in a highly respected homebuilder's family, and learned first hand about the differences between right & wrong, and quality or unacceptable workmanship.
Since then, I have accumulated over thirty-five years of professional experience in both new & renovation construction, construction defects investigation, and apartment facilities management. I have owned my own business for over twenty years. The core principals learned in the early years, coupled with the hands-on experience and knowledge gained from my career achievements, furnish me with the technical expertise to provide you a thorough and objective inspection.
It has been my experience over the years that there are often many indicators of whether or not the structure, and it's many interior & exterior systems, are performing correctly. Over the course of our inspection it is my job to provide you with an accurate assessment, or "snap shot", of the property's current condition based on how well it was built, and how well it has been maintained since it's inception.
My goal is to provide you with the knowledge necessary to make an informed decision on one of life's largest investments. I will strive to provide you with the information you will need to negotiate a position that is right for you. You can expect realistic and accurate observations, presented in an easy-to-read electronic format.
I look forward to meeting & working with you...
David and I were blown away with your report. Very thorough. I would recommend you to anyone in a heartbeat. David said it was great working with you. He really enjoyed hearing your thoughts on the house and picking you brain. It was very kind of you to show him things and explain things you saw. We think you did an awesome job with the report. This is our first house so we didn't quite know what to expect and your report exceeded our expectations. And your thoughts within the email were so great for us to have and to hear. We really appreciate you taking the time to do the inspection, and getting it done as soon as you did.
