A home is the biggest purchase you’ll ever make, so it’s important to understand the condition of your investment. River City will provide you with a thorough home inspection and a report you can rely on so that you can make the right choice for your family.
As a state-licensed home inspector trained and certified by the International Association of Certified Home Inspectors (InterNACHI), I follow a comprehensive Standards of Practice and abide by a strict Code of Ethics, which puts my clients’ interests first.
Having lived in my community for nearly 40 years, I consider my clients my neighbors. So, whether you’re a first-time home buyer or ready to downsize the family home, let me put my expertise to work for you. River City Home Inspection will give you the information you need and the peace of mind you deserve to make a confident decision.
• Kentucky-Licensed Home Inspector #HI-4053
• Trained and certified by InterNACHI, the International
Association of Certified Home Inspectors
• Certified by the National Radon Proficiency Program
(NRPP) for Radon Measurements & Inspections
• Affiliate Member of the Greater Louisville Association
of Realtors
• 10-year veteran of the Louisville Fire Department

I’ll inspect the structure, systems and components of
the home, inside and out, from the foundation to the
roof. And although I’m not required to walk the roof like
most inspectors, I’ll do it when conditions are safe so
that I can make my observations up close to get you the
information you need.
I will inspect all of the following, when visible and
• Roof
• Structural Components
• Attic, Ventilation & Insulation
• Exterior Cladding, including EIFS
• Porch & Deck
• Attached Garage
• Driveway
• Foundation
• Basement/Crawlspace
• Electrical System
• Plumbing System
• HVAC System
• Interior, including:
° Built-In Appliances
° Ceilings, Floors & Walls
° Windows/Glazing
° Doors
Following my evaluation, I will compile my findings
in an easy-to-understand report that includes highquality
digital photos, video, checklists, and detailed
descriptions of any defects I’ve discovered. Your report
will be emailed to you within 24 hours. And my job isn’t
finished until you understand
everything in it.

Ryan did a thorough job and walked me through everything he noted. Very easy to work with and very respectful. As a plus, he even wore footies over his shoes to make sure he didn't track dirt into the house.

This was my first experience with a home inspection and I did my research prior to attending the inspection. I think Ryan handled the process very well. During the walk through he didn't make a big deal out if everything, he walked us through a few items and let the report cover the details. I have already told friends about Ryan and have recommended him as a highly qualified and professional home inspector.
