About Us


The Best Choice for Home Inspection Services and Drone Inspections in Contra Costa County. 

I put my outstanding reputation for service and reliability to work for you. By using Avion Inspection Service, you benefit from experience that will deliver reports that meet or exceed the national standards. I encourage your presence during the inspection. By being present at the inspection I can educate you about the home and explain things in clear, non-technical terms as we move through the house. I take the time after the inspection to sit with you and review the report in as much detail as you like.


I conform to the strict code of ethics established by the American Society of Home Inspectors (ASHI), this ensures quality service while providing important protections. For example, inspectors must:

  •  Work Exclusively for the Customer
  •  Follow ASHI Accepted Standards of Practice
  •  Not Perform Repairs on Any Home Inspected

Please click here to see the ASHI Code of Ethics I have been trained to be familiar with a wide variety of situations and adhere to the ASHI Standards of Practice when conducting all inspections. I believe that consumers have the right to expect the highest standards of thoroughness, fairness and effectiveness from their home inspector.  Please click here to see the ASHI Standards of Practice    All of my inspection reports are authentic and stand up to critical examination. 


Dave Pagano - Owner / Inspector 

I have worked in the construction industry for over 30 years . I have an Engineering Degree from Bucknell University.  My home inspector training and certification was completed through Inspection Certification Associates (ICA) North America's most trusted provider of Home Inspection Training and Certification.

I passed the National Home Inspector Examination (NHIE) and am a member of the American Society of Home Inspectors (ASHI), where I continue to further my education and expertise in the field of home inspection.


 I utilize HomeGuage, state-of-the-art industry leading software that allows me to incorporate full color photos, graphic images, as well as video clips in to your report.  I can provide a bound hard copy, and a thumb drive with the report the day after the inspection. In addition, you will have access to the report on an FTP site where you can download it at any time.

Drone Inspections

Aerial Photography

Utilizing the newest in Drone technology from DJI, the Phantom 4 Pro, I provide high resolution photos for every client.

Neighborhood View

Rising several hundred feet above the house, I can provide a perspective of the house and surrounding terrain that other inspectors can't.  

Drone Roof Inspections

Many roofs in our area are made of materials that shouldn't be walked on. For every house (without tree or power wire obstructions) I provide a drone roof inspection.  This allows me to provide the customer with close up views of the roof that often can't be viewed.
