About Advantage Inspection Services
DEP/PA Radon Certification #1962
Completing Home Inspections for 19 Years
Hi, my name is Dwayne Ott, and I founded Advantage Inspection Services with homebuyers and homeowners in Central Pennsylvania in mind. I have been a fulltime home inspector since 1998 and have inspected thousands of homes over the years. I started my business with a simple concept: to inspect every home as if I were purchasing it myself.
A Background Customers Can Depend On
I have a background in electrical engineering, quality management, home construction, and renovation. This experience provided me with useful knowledge about how a home and all of its components work and function together as a whole. I previously worked as a quality control manager, a position which honed my attention to detail and ability to find even the smallest issues that others might overlook. But, my single best qualification is 19 years of inspection experience. My understanding and hands-on experience allows me to identify problems and explain them to my customers. My goal has never been to do the most home inspections, only the best.
I provide detailed, unbiased inspections that customers are encouraged to attend, easy to understand custom reports, and customer service, even after the home inspection.
I am an American Society of Home Inspectors (ASHI) certified inspector. ASHI is the leading professional organization for home inspectors. ASHI requires a minimum of 20 continuing education units annually. In addition to this membership, I hold the following degrees, certificates, and licenses:
- Associate’s degree in Electrical Engineering
- ASHI licensure as a Home Inspector
- PA Department of Environmental Protection certification for radon testing
- Certification for infrared thermography
