As a Master Carpenter with 40 + years in the construction Industry I advocate for my clients. Telling the story of the home or building in an unalarming manner that allows my clients to have an educated conversation with their agents.

I had my (soon-to-be) new home inspected on 10/31/20 by Rick. He was phenomenal. As a newbie house buyer, we were looking for the most knowledgeable person we could find, someone who would help educate us in addition to inspecting the house down to the atomic level. I’m so happy to say that Rick was all that and more. Rick was prompt, friendly and focused. He exhibited extraordinary attention to detail and an encyclopedic knowledge of every aspect of the house. The 160+ page report he presented to us was incredibly detailed and helpful. Would HIGHLY recommend Rick and would work with him again. Thanks, Rick!

Rick Kast was extremely professional. He really went the extra mile...showing and explaining in great details. He has a good presence on the telephone, making you feel you've known him for years.

Rick was very thorough in his review and took the time during writing his report to look up an item that my and I were concerned with regarding the house even though it was really a non issue. That I’m my opinion is above and beyond.

My wife and I were looking at buying an older home so we had a few reservations. We'd read some advice that a second inspection can help make sure things don't get missed, but after we met with Rick and he took over 3 hours (actually he'd already started looking things over when we got there) to look the entire house over and explained everything very clearly. We felt that it was an honest assessment of where the place stood on that day, raising caution where necessary, but tempering it with his experience. We would definitely recommend him to any prospective home buyer.
- D.N., October 2019
Rick’s attention to detail was amazing and he was extremely thorough and descriptive in his evaluation of the home. We came with a lot of questions and Rick was extremely patient providing responses as he was able and ensuring that we understood any issues that would be raised in the report. Even after e report he took the time to respond to questions that we had to ensure the future safety of our family in the space. We would 100% recommend him to anyone in need of a home inspection.

Rick is a true professional. His inspections are always detailed and thorough. He's excellent with buyers who may be nervous about the process and is patient with questions. He's careful to summarize his findings at the end of the inspection so that there are no surprises in the the report. As an agent, the online reports and the ability to make request lists from them are a huge time saver. Give Rick and Red Mill Inspections a try - you won't be disappointed!
