Bringing a Wealth of Knowledge and Experience to Your Family Home.

Rich Roessle, Owner of RCR Inspections Inc.

Meet Rich Roessle

Buying a home is one of the biggest investments that people make in their lifetime.  It is important that home buyers have someone knowledgeable and trustworthy to inspect their future home and provide them with an unbiased and practical assessment of what you, the home buyer, are purchasing.   I started this company to take my experience and apply it directly to you and your family’s home purchase. My background includes working in a variety of different industrial, commercial, and residential construction fields. I have a background in Surveying, Civil Engineering, Project Management, Gas Pipeline Inspection, Welding, Carpentry, Plumbing, High Voltage electric to name a few.  My experience comes from years of working in the utility field as a surveyor, field inspector, project manager, and draftsman. I work every day with carpenters, plumbers, laborers, welders, pipefitters, laborers, and electricians and most other trades while working on industrial and infrastructure projects. I have worked With Most Governing Agencies such as MTA, Con Ed, ECS, NYC DEP, DOT, State Department, Highways, Bridges and Tunnels just to name a few.

I remember when it was time for my wife and I to buy our first home and we were getting the home inspection.  I was walking around with the inspector and finding things that he was overlooking and not including on the home inspection report. I know how frustrated that made me and I never wanted anyone else to experience that frustration.  Then, as friends started to purchase homes, they would ask me to come over and give them my opinion.  That is where my journey to become a home inspector started. We all deserve a home inspector who is thorough and detail oriented.  I wish to provide you with that service.  Being a home inspector is all about helping and guiding you to make the largest and most important purchase of your life.  It is about safety and quality, and I take those things very seriously.  I want to arm you with all the information about your future home so that you can make logical decisions for your family.

What Services We Offer

Residential Inspections

Buying a home is one of the biggest investments you will ever make. Before you buy, you should have a home inspection to avoid potentially costly repairs that would otherwise go undetected until they become even more costly. This is our typical home inspection that catches common defects so you understand the investment you’re making.

Pre-Listing Inspections

Some homeowners want to make repairs to their house before they put it on the market and will make repairs using their inspection report as a baseline reference. Please understand that most buyers will still want to perform their own inspection even if the seller has already had an inspection done.

Radon Testing

Radon is colorless, odorless, and extremely carcinogenic. According to the EPA, radon is one of the leading contributors to the development of lung cancer, behind only smoking. For this reason, regular radon testing is key whether you’re a homeowner, or you’re interested in purchasing a home.

Water Testing

We work with EPA-certified laboratories to examine and assess the water quality in your home. We can check for contaminants such as lead and heavy metals, bacteria, parasites, and other organisms and contaminants. If you have concerns about your water quality, give us a call right away.

Sewer Scope Inspection

Are your sinks and tubs emptying too slowly? We use a special camera to scope the sewer line to visualize any blockages that are interfering with the plumbing system’s proper drainage. Finding and addressing such problems now can head off catastrophic and expensive repairs later.

Septic Inspection

We will inspect the Septic Tank by digging out the inlet and outlet, measure the affluent, inspect the baffles visually, and give a general overview of the condition of the Septic and its components. *note septic risers are nominally 8" cover at time of inspection if it is deemed deeper additonal time and charge will be agreed at time of discovery.

Walk and Talk

A walk and talk is a non-invasive conversation about the conditions visually seen.

Pool Inspection

We look at electrical, supply and return lines, pool liners/ gunnite condition, safety measures/ devices and general condition of the pool/spa and provide a written report of the findings.

Frequently Asked Questions

A home inspection is an objective visual examination of the physical structure and systems of a house, from the roof to the foundation. Home inspections are designed to protect the buyer, by revealing problems they might not have noticed otherwise.

The cost will vary based on the square footage of the home, the age of the home, and location of the home. Call, text, or email us for a quote today!

Home inspections generally take 2 to 4 hours to complete. The duration of a home inspection depends on many factors such as the size of the home, the condition of the home, and the ability to access certain areas of the home (roof, crawl space, attic, etc.).

Although it is not necessary, we do recommend that you attend the inspection so you can ask questions and learn more about the home. You will learn a lot from the inspection report, but we always encourage you to attend!
It is important to note that no house is perfect. At the end of the home inspection process, we will provide a detailed report that describes the physical condition of the property, with images and videos highlighting what may need repair or replacement. The information provided is to allow a potential buyer to make an informed decision about moving forward with the transaction. It is not pass or fail.
