Joe Rayhill

I have been in construction for over 30 years.  My experience is in both residential and commercial buildings with new construction as well as remodeling.  I am a member of the Local #64 Carpenters Union in Louisville and OSHA Certified.  I have been a licensed Realtor for the past 5 years and I have seen firsthand the confusion and frustration that can be caused by the home inspection.  Because of that trepidation, I have decided to utilize my knowledge in construction and help buyers and sellers through the home inspection process.  After each home inspection, I will sit down and thoroughly go over each section of their professional report and answer any questions they may have.  I want to make sure my clients understand what is in the report and walk away feeling confident with their inspection.  I offer residential home inspections and commercial building inspections.  I will give a hard copy HOMEGAUGE report to my clients after each inspection.  I will also email a copy to the Realtor that same day.  I serve Jefferson, Bullitt, Nelson, Hardin and Spencer counties and I also offer evening and Saturday appointments.

Joe did a fantastic job looking at the property we wanted to buy. With it being a foreclosure, it was important that we had a trustworthy inspector to work with us.

Can't say enough about Joe. He is extremely thorough and know what he is talking about. I wouldn't hesitate to use him again or recommend him to a friend. I wanted to be there for the inspection, but I didn't know what he thought about me "looking over his shoulder." First thing he said was, "Great, glad your here, four eyes are better than two, tell me everything you see." Then he pointed out everything he found and we talked about it. He didn't rush me at all and wanted to make sure I didn't leave with any questions.

Joe inspected the first home that I was going buy and found multiple things that was wrong with the home. He saved me money by me knowing this home had issues that would cost me thousands down the road. He did such a great inspection with the first home I had to have him come out and inspect the next home. He did a great job on the 2nd inspection which I knew he would from the prior home inspection. I feel he is worth every penny and he is good at what he do. I highly recommend him. Easy to work with and he works with your schedule. Great person and just awesome. Thank you Joe and Beth.
