My name is Richard Fletcher and my company Tri-Lakes Home Inspections serves the northern Adirondacks of New York from Plattsburgh, Malone, Saranac Lake, Tupper Lake, Lake Placid, Keene Valley and every place in between. I am a licensed New York State home inspector and have been involved with homes and the construction trades for over 35 years. I strive to perform a home inspection that both buyers and sellers can be confident in. Adhering to New York State Standards of Practice, I methodically go through your house pointing out areas of concern as well as good points. A home inspector brings a different perspective to the inspection process observing things that would not be obvious to the ordinary home buyer. Many problems are minor and can be taken care of with minimal cost or by the homeowner. Others can be extremely costly. In any case the inspection process gives the potential home-buyer a clearer, more transparent view of the condition of the house and what they are getting for their money.
