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.
