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.
