About Us Image 1
im, what can I say. You saved the day! My father use to be a builder and checked out the house on the lake for me, very closely and thought it looked good. When you used your thermal imaging camera and detected moisture under the new shingles on the roof and then verified the previous damage to the roof decking that was hidden under the new shingles you really saved the day. The owners agreed that the new shingles needed to be torn off and all the decking should have been replaced by the roofer they used. We came to an arrangement and would have lost thousands if you did not inform us of this issue.
Thanks for knowing your stuff and looking so closely

I hired Annruel Home inspection Services to check on a Home I am planning to buy in Weld maine. I could not believe how thorough and knowledgeable Jim was. It was almost like He was buying the home for himself. He checked out things that I hadn't even considered should be checked. I highly recommend this company!!! I have peace of mind now knowing that the house I am buying is safe and structurally sound. Thanks so much Jim......

Just a Note to say GREAT WORK . This is the third home I have purchased and the first time I feel secure about what I am getting myself into. The contractor I hired noted several things you pointed out needing repairs and when I showed him your report he was surprised at several things he missed that needed attention.

Jim people have been amazed at the way you have taken care of my camp and even my mother who lives up there can not believe how you have looked out for me and my camp as if it was your money being spent. Thanks again

+++ Service! On my 200 year old home purchase I was amazed when He found mold and mildew in a wall that looked like new! Upon tearing the wall apart it was just as he described, so glad he used the thermal imaging and then that snake camera he ran in the wall. I would highly recommend to anyone especially if you have an older home.
David Nelson My insurance company sent an inspector out to offer me $1,600 to cover damage from my burst water pipes, after giving them your inspection report they agreed to pay me $6,350 , thanks for crawling under the house and getting those detailed photos and thermal image photos to prove my case

I was impressed with your service after the inspection I never would have expected you to come back and re-inspect that the issues were fixed correctly by the plumber and electrician I hired and I am so glad you caught the joints he did not insulate properly , a small fix now saves major problems later
Thank you very much

Review by Ian D. in Gardiner, ME
Project: Inspect a Home
Comments: Jim was fantastic, does more than you'd ever expect from a Home Inspection. Also the most certified Inspector that you will find in Maine. Extremely thorough, gets the report to you the very next day, in intricate detail, Very highly recommend.I was very impressed that Jim also checked two windows for lead paint, Checked the stove and dryer for gas leaks or built up gas pockets and used thermal imaging all for NO EXTRA CHARGE. He also provided photos inside the chimney that I expected to hire a separate chimney inspector for this since the last time I bought a house the other inspector put in the report " have checked by a professional" . Jim showed me all his certifications and I think that along with his true way of caring about my homes safety this makes him stand out from the pack.

Jim is probably the best that one can get in a home inspector. He not only cares deeply about what he does but he shows it by constantly adding many certificates and licenses to his practice. He is an educated expert in just about all areas of home inspection including air quality, pests and roofing. Jim will not just advise on aspects of a home that have issues and need immediate correction, he will also advise on issues that might become a problem further down the road. His goal is not to just advise on what needs to be done to home to pass inspection but to make sure that issues don’t come up in the future. Jim is a great home detective and home sleuth. He will find the smallest potential issues that others will not notice and explain potential problems that could occur down the road. Jim is a very very friendly and easy going person. He has been in the business many years and I fully recommend him! ***** Eric W.

5 star rating Jim is extremely professional, thorough, and knowledgable. I was very impressed with his service and will recommend him to anyone in need of a home inspection.

Annruel Home Insections was the only company my loan officer said he would trust to inspect a log home like the one I bought. Thankfully their detailed report pointed out issues that I had no clue about and the first three people I spoke to gave me three different answers on what to do. After hours of research I found what my report said was the correct way to care for my new home and correct the issues. Robert my loan officer was correct in recommending AnnRuel and Now I say the same thing. Do not buy a log home with out AnnRuel by your side.
