I am a Durham area resident and home inspector providing unbiased, accurate and thorough home inspections in the greater Research Triangle area. I am licensed and certified to provide inspection services in North Carolina.
Beginning with my time in the US Navy and Naval Reserves, followed by a career in public education, I have always been committed to serving those around me. During those periods, I renovated two turn-of-the-century houses in Virginia from the ground up, worked to improve three other personal homes and participated in the construction of our current home in Durham, NC. As a result of these experiences, I have acquired many skills that directly translate to one's expectations for a great home inspector.
In 2018, I decided to put my service skills and construction knowledge to work for others in the community by securing a license to inspect and advise them about the quality and concerns they will experience in their most valued investment: their home. Now, I hope to serve YOU!
Thank you for considering me for your needs in inspecting your home. My goal is to educate you about the property regardless of whether you are purchasing a new home or just want to learn about potential future concerns/repairs needed in your current residence.
If you have any questions about myself or the services I can offer you, please feel free to contact me via email, phone or using the form on this site.
In this short video, you will meet Rick Sheldahl, owner and inspector, who will tell you about the mission of Inhabitable Home Inspections and how a home inspection can help you as a current or future home owner.
