Inspection Pros/BPG Scheduling: 877/838-5959

Originally from Michigan, I moved to California in 1987, and have lived in Alameda since 1995. My wife Charlene and I have 2 children in college, Ellie and Cooper who keep us on the run.

Prior to my home inspection career, I did general construction, remodeling and building maintenance, and have spent the last 24 years exclusively doing home inspections.

I have performed over 11,000 inspections, both residential and commercial, and I'm familiar with all types and era's of construction from Victorian to Mid-Century Modern to brand new.

I'm an ASHI (American Society of Home Inspectors) member in good standing since 1995 - Member #201132

I focus primarily on the East Bay (Alameda and Contra Costa Counties), however I have performed inspections in San Francisco, Sacramento,San Jose and the surrounding areas, and am always happy to consider inspections, regardless of distance.

I served on the Board of the Alameda Development Corporation (affordable housing advocacy group) for several years as their liaison to contractors, and have worked with Habitat for Humanity.

I was also the featured inspector on several episodes of HGTV's House Detective.

I love my job and take it very seriously, and take pride in helping people understand the intricacies of their property. Every day I help clients with the challenges of buying or selling a home by identifying, explaining and documenting the conditions of the property. At the end of the day, my goal is to make sure there is a clear understanding of our findings, including health and safety issues, improper installations and significant defects, as well as emergency preparedness, upgrade suggestions and seasonal maintenance.

Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

David was very thorough and took the time to answer my questions and explain the process and his findings. Very nice to work with!

David Teare is an exceptional inspector--thorough and extremely knowledgeable, and giving careful, thoughtful explanations.

David was great - very friendly, no-nonsense professional who got to work immediately. His brief summary of findings was honest and reassuring.

David Teare always gets 5 stars from me. He is knowledgeable and professional. I will never use your roof inspection services again. Chandler Ham is the opposite of professional. They are arrogant and think they can just do whatever they want and they do not cover all areas that we need. You should consider contracting with a different 3rd party on roof inspections in the future if you want my business.

It's always a good experience with BPG, especially with First-time homebuyers.

David Teare was very knowledgeable, professional, and I thoroughly enjoyed working with him.

David Teare is the best - professional, knowledgable, & always willing to go the distance to help.

David was very personable, professional and knowledgable. I will certainly use David as my home inspector from now on. Thank you.

inspection was thorough; David answered all my questions and was patient with answering all my questions; he made sure I understood his process and implications of his findings

David Teare did the inspection of the home and completed the report within a day. His report was complete and easy to follow. Made the decision process on whether to purchase the home much easier. I have used his services in the past and have always found the info in his reports pertinent to my decision making process. Very satisfied with the service.

Dave Teare was a delight to work with! Arrived early, introduced himself & got right to work. Spent time explaining each step of his inspection, showing us what he was observing and pointed out the issues he suggested were priorities to fix. His written reprot was ready the next day as promised. Payment process was easy-peasy.
