I'm Dan Kopp, Construction Consultant, Certified Professional Real Estate Home Inspector and president of Valley Home Inspection LLC. I know you have many Home Inspectors in the Boise area to choose from and I appreciate you looking into our services.
Why should you choose Valley Home Inspection LLC?
Valley Home Inspection LLC provides a 200% guarantee on every inspection we perform. If you are not completely satisfied and believe our inspection service is the absolute best, we not only will refund your full inspection fee but also pay another ASHI-certified inspector of your choice to re-inspect the property.

We work for you. We will give you the straight facts about the condition of the home you are about to purchase. We are also a locally-owned company with one inspector, not part of a nationwide franchise or a multi-inspector firm. Companies with multiple inspectors may be able to get your inspection done faster, but you will likely end up with an inspector who has less experience or training.
We're thorough and detailed.
We usually do only 2 inspections per day. This allows us the time needed to do a thorough inspection of your home, explain the findings to you and answer any questions that you may have. If you are able to attend the inspection, we will show you the location of all of your main disconnects, explain any issues that were found, and walk you through all of the pictures that were taken during the inspection. The pictures will also be included in the narrative-style report that will be emailed to you the same day as the inspection.
Our sole inspector, Dan Kopp, has been in the construction industry since 1989 and has personally inspected over 6000 homes. He was a former licensed general contractor from Sacramento, CA (#781522), and has built and remodeled many houses. This background not only makes him a better Home Inspector but enables him to offer you the valuable "fix-it yourself" advice you may need as a new homeowner.
Did you know that in the great state of Idaho, there are no regulations or licensing requirements for home inspectors? That's right; anyone with a flashlight can call themselves a home inspector. This is why it is so important to only hire an ASHI-certified inspector. In order to become ASHI certified, Dan had to prove himself by successfully passing the National Home Inspectors Technical and Ethics Exams, he was required to send ASHI a random sampling of his reports to insure that they met ASHI’s strict standards and had to prove that he had performed more than 250 inspections. Dan has been ASHI Certified since 2004.
To maintain his ASHI certification, he is required to attend classes annually to stay on top of the constantly changing construction industry. Essentially, ASHI has pre qualified Dan for you, saving you time and making it easier for you to choose the right inspector. Please visit www.ashi.org for more information.
We write better reports.
Our reports are computer-generated, easy to understand and well-organized, not to mention detailed and thorough. They are specific to your house and type of construction, not a generic preprinted checklist. We use color-coded narratives for easy navigation and include pictures and illustrations so you don't need a construction background to understand what we’re talking about. However, if you do have any questions after reviewing your report, we’re always a phone call away and we are happy to further explain items or answer any of your inspection-related questions.
We go there.
We cover the entire Treasure Valley from the Oregon border to Mountain Home, including Boise, Nampa, Caldwell, Eagle, Meridian, Star, Kuna, Middleton and even up to McCall, Donnelly and Cascade. However, travel charges are added for areas outside of a 20-mile radius of Meridian. Feel free to call or email us for an exact price quote.
Our business philosophy is simple.
We inspect your home as if our family was going to live in it. You'll learn things about the home you wouldn't find out any other way, such as maintenance tips, safety concerns, areas to monitor and estimated life expectancy of vital components. We will take the time to explain the systems and components of the home, show you where your main disconnects are, and answer any questions you may have. We’re also available for questions even after you move in, We want to be your "building consultant for life."
Our guarantee to you.
We don't like paying for services that we’re not happy with and we don't expect you to have to pay for our services if you're unhappy. We’re so confident about the quality of the service we provide, that if you're not completely satisfied with your inspection, We will refund your money and pay another ASHI-certified inspector of your choice to re-inspect the property.
