Meet Our Team
Reese Perkins, OwnerI have over 30 years of experience in the construction industry. I have a degree in Civil Engineering from the University of New Hampshire. After many years working on heavy civil and industrial projects, I decided to follow my dream by becoming self-employed performing residential renovation work. Mostly using my own hands, I have completed three renovations in the Bangor area, including one which was a total renovation from the building frame out. This has provided me with great experience in all areas of house building and renovation. In addition, over the last few years, I have been performing repair and renovation projects for others as my time allows. Performing this work has required me to become familiar with local and national building codes, especially the International Residential Code. This experience has allowed me to be exceptionally prepared to perform home inspections. Not only do I know what to look for and what is required by code, but usually I can suggest the cause of a construction problem, as well as possible remedies and estimated cost.

We just wanted to thank you for the comprehensive inspection report. Eric was very nice, extremely professional and thorough, and explained everything he found so we could understand exactly what we were dealing with and what needed to be done, if anything. Please thank him again for us for his great work and attention to detail!
From our initial phone call to delivery of the final inspection reports, Perkins Home Services was a complete delight. Professional, prompt, thorough, and accommodating. We even learned a thing or two from the general home inspector, in addition to the required information. We're satisfied and smarter!
Scott and John who inspected our septic system have completed their work at our home in Deer Isle, Maine. We wish to complement their professionalism, courtesy and willingness to respond to our questions. They were very informative. You sent a very good team and we appreciate it. Thanks for your help too in explaining the process and arranging our appointment.
I just wanted to say thank you and how incredibly happy we were with everyone. Scott & John were beyond friendly and answered any and all questions we had! We hope to recommend you to anyone that is looking for the same service in the future.
Just wanted to say I was pleased with your Septic Check on the Blackwood Rd, Property. But saddened that I was hoping to buy it without incident. Nice to be forewarned of future problems. Thank you. I would recommend you to others.
It has been a pleasure dealing with all at Perkins. Very professional and knowledgeable. Little wonder that you are highly recommended by every realtor that we have met.
This is a very professional, thorough company. Their excellent work takes much of the worry out of buying a new home.
Scott came and inspected a home today I am interested in buying and he was great! I just wanted to say thank you for being so flexible and available. Scott was great about explaining everything to me in depth and answering all my questions. Thank you again!
Many thanks to you and the Perkins team for the great work on inspecting the home I plan to purchase. Your workers (both those who answer the phone and send out reports and those who do the hands-on inspecting of house, water, and septic) are all wonderful- friendly, knowledgeable, efficient- and you came so quickly when I needed you! I especially liked it that I could observe the inspections and ask questions. I learned a lot about the place I will soon call home!
