    We had the privilege of working with Mr. Richard Washington of RW Home Inspections as Home Inspector for our new home construction in Katy, Texas. As we prayed and searched, we felt convinced to work with him and we are very glad we did. He performed the three phases of inspection and two re-inspections. He is very courteous, professional, understanding, responds promptly to calls and messages, and is easy to work with. He is very knowledge and very detailed in his inspections, more than what we saw in the sample reports of some other inspectors we looked at. He engaged the building construction manager on our behalf when necessary. His thorough work saved us from significant problems and headaches. We are looking forward to having him perform a warranty inspection for us before the warranty on our new home expires. We recommend Richard as a very dependable home inspector to anyone.
