Rick Cauchon, CRI

Thank you for considering me as your home inspection professional. I have been working as a full time home inspector in the Tuscaloosa, AL area for over 28 years. During that time, I have had the pleasure of working for and meeting many wonderful people.

Tuscaloosa is a great place to live, work, raise a family, attend college or run a business. I have called this wonderful town home for over 28 years and would never considering living anywhere else. Roll Tide!

I take the utmost pride in providing my clients with the most professional and complete home inspection and consulting possible. I maintain industry training and education levels annually to be sure I am on top of my game and knowledgeable of current events as it relates to your home.

A professional home inspection is basically an unbiased look at the home. I focus on areas in the home inspection as they relate to safety and mechanical/structural condition. I don't check for things we consider "cosmetic" such as scratches, dents and stains.

It gives me great pleasure to assist real estate buyers AND sellers in providing an educational experience during the transaction and have enjoyed doing so over the past 20 years. I look forward to many more and possibly meeting you in the near future.
