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.
Scott Loukes, Certified InspectorOver the past 15 years I have been involved with residential construction from framing to finish. I have a full understanding of how a home should be constructed for maximum structural integrity, efficiency and safe occupancy. With years of construction management experience, I was able to have hands on experience with blue print reading, applicable code designs, and a complete understanding of how all elements, from landscaping to shingle placement effect the current and future condition of a home. Since teaming up with Perkins Home Services LLC I have inspected thousands of homes aging from 1740 to brand new. In addition to being a fully certified home inspector, I am a Maine State licensed septic inspector and a Maine State licensed radon measurement provider. It has become my passion to not only provide buyers and sellers with knowledge of current defects of a home, but also to provide individuals with the knowledge of how a home and its systems operate, and helpful hints as to how to maintain or recognize possible future defects.
