About Me

My name is Darren McClurg. Unlike most professionals you hire, you probably won’t meet me until our appointment. Furthermore, different inspectors have varying qualifications, equipment, experience, reporting methods, and pricing. Ultimately, a thorough home inspection depends heavily on the individual inspector’s own effort. If you honor me by permitting me to inspect your new home, I guarantee that I’ll give you my very best effort.

As a Certified Professional Inspector®, I’ve performed over 1,000 inspections in my time. Before that, I was a home builder since 1994. It’s an honor working for my home-buying clients and helping them make smart decisions. I am married to the most beautiful woman in the world, and we’re raising a lovely, intelligent son. Feel free to contact me for anything, at anytime.

    5 star review  Darron was a pleasure to work with. He was patient and explained all the defiencies and what to look out for. He took time to explain how to properly service the different components in the house. His report was really thorough, and it included pictures. He sent us the report the same day as promised. We ordered this inspection for our 30 day and we have no regrets choosing Bent Nails. If you want someone who will go above and beyond, Darron is your man.
