Buying a Home is an Emotional Experience

It's far too easy to become attached to a home. I'm here to provide you with an independent, professional opinion so you can make the right choice.

A home inspection is an objective visual inspection of the physical structure and systems of the home. The inspection will provide you with detailed, unbiased information.

I'll uncover building defects, necessary repairs, safety hazards, and preventative maintenance issues that could cost you a lot of money down the road. I'll also help you understand which problems are major, and which problems can be corrected inexpensively.

My husband and I chose DeRick Home Inspection to come and take a look at our first home we are purchasing. From the get go Paul was very responsive and professional. He recommended we be there for the inspection so we tagged along and we’re very glad we did! Paul was very thorough and walked us through his process and explained everything he was doing. He answered all the questions that we had and gave recommendations on things he mentioned we should look out for. It did not take long for us to receive our report and everything listed made sense to us since we were there to witness. I highly recommend using DeRick Home Inspection! He’s very fair with pricing and a friendly guy who cares about your home!

We couldn’t be happier with having DeRick do our home inspection before buying. His knowledge, professionalism, and his willingness to teach us about our new home such as where to reset outlets and how they are linked together helped us so much. We highly recommend him!

I am very impressed with how the inspection was conducted, the communication to ensure I understood the areas of deficiencies, and his professionalism of interacting with me and my brother.

I recently had the pleasure of working with Mr Paul, and I cannot recommend him enough. From start to finish, he was professional, knowledgeable, and thorough in his inspection of my new home.

Mr Paul arrived on time and was dressed professionally, which immediately put me at ease. He began the inspection by explaining the process and answering any questions I had. He was patient and took the time to ensure I understood each step of the inspection.

Throughout the inspection, Mr Paul demonstrated an impressive level of expertise and attention to detail. He was meticulous in his examination of every inch of the property, from the roof to the foundation. He identified issues that I would never have noticed, and provided clear explanations of the potential risks and necessary repairs.

What stood out most to me was Mr Paul’s professionalism and commitment to his work. He took the time to explain each issue they found and provided me with a comprehensive report that was easy to understand. His attention to detail and thoroughness made me feel confident in my decision to purchase the home.

Overall, I highly recommend Mr Paul. He was a pleasure to work with and provided me with invaluable insights that will help me make informed decisions about the property. If you're in need of a home inspector, Mr Paul should be your first choice!

It was a huge relief to come across Paul while my number was being spammed by large corporations. Paul was down-to-Earth, quick to reply, and very helpful as a first-time home buyer. His report was very detailed and I appreciated his keen eye. For the price and quality, you can't go wrong with Paul.

After a realtor told me I had termites and low balled me on the offer. Paul came out and did a in depth inspection. There were no termites and priced my house dramatically higher. Thank you Paul.

I have the experience and knowledge necessary to give you a clear look at the current condition of your home. I combine a formal education with real-world experience in the field to bring a trained perspective to every one of my home inspections.


The value of a home inspection comes from the potential cost of the issues it uncovers. I offer thorough inspections at competitive rates to ensure you get the most value, ultimately saving money and gaining confidence in your purchase.


I understand that you're busy. I'll work with you to schedule your home inspection at a time that works well for you. Although I strongly encourage you to tag along, your presence at the inspection is not required.


Even the most experienced and capable home inspectors are capable of making mistakes. I carry Errors & Omissions insurance, as well as General Liability insurance, so you can rest easy.

Hire a Home Inspector Who Has Your Best Interests in Mind

You probably won't get to meet your home inspector before hiring them, so it's important to find someone who is dependable, trustworthy, and properly certified. Make sure you're hiring a home inspector who has your best interests in mind.

I've been certified by the American Home Inspectors Training Institute (AHIT) and have the experience and knowledge to ensure that you're equipped with the best information possible.

I also encourage my clients to be present for the inspection, where I'll educate and familiarize you with your new home.

A Home Inspection Is about More than Saving Money

Buying a new house is scary, especially for first-time home buyers. Many problems can be hidden or require a trained eye to notice. These include rotting floors, structural failures, moisture penetration, mold growth, electrical and fire hazards, and so on. Any one of these problems can turn a home into a money pit, or even put your family in danger. That's where I come in. A professional home inspection from DeRick Home Inspection will help put your mind at ease and make the buying process easier.
