About Us

Our Story

I started out as a commercial photographer in 1980. Slowly my past experience working in a family construction company kept finding a way to get into my photo shoots. My wife worked as my assistant / Partner , so we decided to take both of our middle names, hers being ANN and my middle name being RUEL  to form AnnRuel. We felt this would be a great name. As insurance photography and then insurance inspections took over my business it was evident that this was fate, that I would become the best Home inspector in Maine. I not only gained the education and experience as a home inspector but I had years in the family business building as well as over 1000 insurance inspections. Thanks to the insurance angle I had a massive edge over the competition. I care about every inspection, knowing that I have been trusted to see if this major purchase is worth the asking price or not. It is a great responsibility that We do not take lightly, as this will often be a purchase that will take a good part of the buyers income for the next 30 years. We also brought in several other talented inspectors to cover the entire state as well as having  Inspectors that care and take pride in their work.

Our Goal

It is our goal to make sure that every client feels confident that they can make an educated offer on the property they are looking at buying or they can have the correct information to know if they should walk away.  I take it very serious that a home inspection will often be the deciding point on a good chuck of a persons income for the next 20 to 30 years and can not be taken lightly. Not only is our inspection to look for structural issues but also issues that may be harmful to the buyer.
