Our home inspectors are licensed in MA & CT. At present, the RI home inspector licensing law is not implemented. This means anyone can legally perform home inspections without a license in RI! The law was passed in 2000 but was never funded. Griggs & Browne has been the leader in the fight to help get this program up and running.  The citizens of RI deserve it!

 In the meantime when interviewing RI home inspectors, ask questions like;

  • How many home inspections have you performed?
  • How long have you been in business?
  • Do you carry errors & omissions insurance?
  • Do you perform continuing education?
  • Are you licensed in any state?

It was a pleasure doing business with you Paul. It was also very educational for me I have not owned property since 1988 so I have been out of the loop with upgrades requirements and such. You were very thorough, informative and patient!! Your professionalism is to be respected. The time you took examining the house, section by section, then reviewing the findings with me were much appreciated. I also felt very relieved knowing that I could reach out to you if I had any questions regarding the findings. I am not going forward with this home and again I am so thankful that I had you as the Inspector, you have saved me a lot of money and heartaches!! I would recommend you highly! Joanne 10/03/14

Paul did an excellent job under adverse conditions. On top of dealing with the recent snow-storm and frigid temps the house being inspected was cluttered with the sellers personal effects. Paul took his time examining the house, section by section, then reviewed his findings with us at regular intervals. Paul produced an extremely detailed report, which was available within 6 hours of of the inspection. All in all a professional, thorough inspection, we are extremely satisfied and would recommend Paul to our family and friends. Thank you Paul!

Paul, No doubt that you are the best in your field. You are extremely thorough, with a wide range of knowledge, but most importantly you have the "bedside manner" which is most appreciated by realtors. Your skills and competence also put both Buyers and Sellers at ease during a somewhat tense period for both parties. It is pretty difficult to perform your duties when you have buyers breathing down your neck, following you around, and asking a million questions, yet you seamlessly integrate all of it effortlessly. Kudos to you! Carol Viccione Randall ,Realtors Watch Hill

Paul was thorough, knowledgeable and covered everything. Also, he didn't seem like a salesman trying to get cash out of me - he seemed like a guy who was trying to give me good information. Plus after the inspection was over he was still available through email for advice and clarification on information he had passed on to me regarding the inspection.

Great Job Paul, as my clients told you,they had many homes inspected, but haven't had an inspector that was half as good as you! Keep up the good work,Mike Behm
- M.B., Cranston RI, September 2009
I could not possibly be happier with the service Paul provided. He was extremely thorough, explained what he was looking for during each phase of his evaluation, explained all findings and allowed me to ask as many questions as I wanted. I never once felt that he was annoyed with my barrage of inquiries as he was always ready and willing to provide me with a detailed answer. The information and advice he gave was practical and great. He was able to explain things in such a way that I really understood what was going on, despite having little to no working knowledge of home constructions. This was definitely money well spent! I cannot recommend Paul highly enough.
