Hi, I’m Richard Powell, owner of Home Inspection Services, and I’ve been doing home and septic inspections in the Southeast Michigan area for over 20 years. I’m originally from Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada but have lived in Ann Arbor for most of my life. I started off as a professional carpenter, went into real estate sales briefly, and decided to launch Home Inspection Services so I could focus on serving home buyers. I’ve also been a Licensed Residential Builder and Remodeler for the last 30 years so you can count on me to provide you with thorough and knowledgeable inspections. What makes me unique, is that I do both home inspections and well and septic inspections. I love being self-employed because it gives me the freedom to be my own boss and the flexibility to pursue other passions.

I practice yoga daily and meditate regularly. I love being on the water in any kind of boat and play poker as often as I can.
