Ron Dean is the only home inspector you should consider hiring. His expertise and knowledge in home construction extends far beyond the every day home inspector. He is extremely responsive and readily available to meet with his clients. Thorough - considerate - trustworthy - and well-informed, he’s the best in the area. We couldn’t be more impressed by his expansive knowledge and professionalism.

Ron Dean has been involved in several reconstruction projects in our circa 1830 home as contractor/supervisor/designer. To refer to these jobs as simply renovations or remodels belies the complexities and challenges each project presented. Thanks to his knowledge and experience in construction, creativity and patience, Ron exceeded our expectations for each project and brought 21st century technology to our home while retaining the integrity of its original structure.

My experience working with Ronald Dean has always been a pleasure. His experience and expertise in the fields of construction, maintenance, and repair is very apparent in his high quality of work and craftsmanship. Over the last year, Ronald Dean has assisted me in restoring an old farmhouse that I was later able to market and sell at a premium value. Following the sale of my previous home, Ron Dean has been an advocate and consultant for my family and I in the construction of my new home; ensuring that construction was compliant with NYS code enforcement as well as making certain that the home was being built with quality workmanship and integrity. I cannot say enough good things about Ron Dean.

I have known Ron Dean for over thirty years. I can vouch for his honesty, judgement and fantastic mechanical ability. I have known him as an expert electrician, plumber, HAVC authority, carpenter and building inspector. His humorous, affable personality puts others at ease. I would recommend him for any job.

I have worked with many building people over 40 years. Ron is without a doubt the most knowledgeable building professional I have worked with. I highly recommend using Ron for any building inspection needs you may have.

Ron's experience with historic home restoration has been invaluable to us. He uses a great combination of "old School" craftsmanship, best practice methods and safety compliance. He is thorough and conscientious and puts 110% into every project.

Buying a Home is an Emotional Experience

It's far too easy to become attached to a home. I'm here to provide you with an independent, professional opinion so you can make the right choice.

A home inspection is an objective visual inspection of the physical structure and systems of the home. The inspection will arm you with detailed, unbiased information.

I'll uncover building defects, necessary repairs, safety hazards, and preventative maintenance issues that could cost you a lot of money down the road. I'll also help you understand which problems are major, and which problems can be corrected inexpensively.

Hire a Home Inspector Who Has Your Best Interests in Mind

You probably won't get to meet your home inspector before hiring them, so it's important to find someone who is dependable, trustworthy, and properly certified. Make sure you're hiring a home inspector who has your best interests in mind.

I've been certified by the American Home Inspectors Training Institute (AHIT) and have the experience and knowledge to ensure that you're armed with the best information possible.

I also encourage my clients to be present for the inspection, where I'll educate and familiarize you with your new home.

The value of a home inspection comes from the potential cost of the issues it uncovers. I offer thorough inspections at competitive rates to ensure you get the most value, ultimately saving money and gaining confidence in your purchase.


I understand that you're busy. I'll work with you to schedule your home inspection at a time that works well for you. Although I strongly encourage you to tag along, your presence at the inspection is not required.

A Home Inspection Is about More than Saving Money

Buying a new house is scary, especially for first-time home buyers. Many problems can be hidden or require a trained eye to notice. These include rotting floors, structural failures, moisture penetration, mold growth, electrical and fire hazards, and so on. Any one of these problems can turn a home into a money pit, or even put your family in danger. That's where I come in. A professional home inspection from RWDean, LLC will help put your mind at ease and make the buying process easier.
