Washington-Licensed Home Inspector #1754
InterNACHI Certified Inspector
Licensed Architect in the State of Washington
AHIT Graduate (American Home Inspector Training Institute)
My name is Douglas Bailey and along with my wife Carol I am owner of Absolute Pros Home Inspection Service, LLC. I've lived in the Puget Sound for 25 years, and recently moved to the Woodinville area.
I am backed by InterNACHI, the world’s largest inspection trade association. All Inspector Members are required to meet strict membership requirements and pass a rigid entrance exam before being accepted into InterNACHI. In addition, to retain membership Inspectors must adhere to the InterNACHI Code of Ethics, Standards of Practice, and complete twice the number of continuing education hours each year than is required by the State of Washington.
In addition to being a licensed home inspector I am a project manager, cabinet maker, finish carpenter, tile setter, electrician, plumber, and remain active in home renovation. I'm a creative guy and love to dabble around in the shop and make things for my wife.
As an architect I've always been told I'm organized and detail oriented. Those skills come into play for me in everything I do, not the least while I'm inspecting homes.
I love vintage photography (which to me means any camera that uses film) and have photographed with more than 400 different cameras. If you want me to ever finish your home inspection, don't get me started talking about old cameras!
Join me on Facebook where I'll be sharing unusual, scary, and hopefully sometimes funny discoveries made during home inspections.
