My name is Patrick Rightmier. I have worked in many aspects of construction for over 10 years including roofing, siding, windows, deck construction, interior remodeling work for a local construction company. Those years of experience have afforded me the depth and breadth of experience needed to provide a solid foundation for being a New York State licensed home inspector.
My experience doing home improvements led me to attending C.A.T.S of Albany at Syracuse. During my stint with this school for home inspector training, I furthered my knowledge of homes, their components and construction. My training with C.A.T.S involved a rigorous 100 hours of classroom training in the area of home inspection to include all components of the home. In addition to that classroom training, I performed field inspections totaling another 40 hours made up of 10 mock home inspections.
During my home inspector training I joined the International Association of Certified Home Inspectors (InterNachi). InterNachi is the world’s largest home inspector association. Membership with InterNachi requires regular continuing education training of at least 24 hours per year. Between InterNachi and New York State I must complete at least 36 hours of training per year insuring I maintain my license, membership and allowing me to stay current on important building practices.
I also hold a degree in accounting. This education has afforded me the background needed to run a successful home inspection business.
When I’m not involved with home inspections, I love spending time with my wife and two children and performing home improvements around my own home.
