Customers are encouraged to attend the inspection and be part of buying a new home. Feel free to ask any questions, measure rooms and envision yourself in your new home.  Thermal image camera used to check for insulation and leak issues at no charge.  

I have been an instructor at a local college for new home inspectors. 

Meeting new people and helping home buyers understand how a house works together as a system.  I have been inspecting homes for others for about 15 years and remodeled homes prior to that. 

In 2019 Ohio required licensed for home inspectors and I have secured the licensed.

Thanks and congratulations on your new home !

    I liked the way Rick inspected my future home. The detailed and careful inspection and step by step explanation of what each piece/part inspected indicated was so amazing. In addition, his detailed explanation of every piece of evidence including the positive and negative aspect is so helpful in making decision not only for current risk of the inspected piece of information but also for future potential consideration.

    Very knowledgeable and incredibly thorough. Taught me a lot about my "new" house!! Now I feel more prepared for when I move in, and have a plan of action to remedy some things. Rick is absolutely fantastic and highly recommended!

What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

I encourage customers to attend the inspection if possible to get a better look at the home and how it works. This is a great time to ask questions.   

After the inspection a computer generated report with photos will be sent within 24 hours for review. 

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

In 2019 the state of Ohio required home inspectors to be licensed.  I have secured the licensed.  

For over 7 years I was on staff of a local Real Estate college as the Home Inspection, Radon testing and Mold testing instructor. 

I typically perform over 250 inspections per year and attend continuing education classes each year. 

Before becoming an inspector, I remodeled multiple homes.
