Ray Mayo loves talking about buildings. With years of experience first as a carpenter and then as a home inspector, Ray has become an expert on how buildings work. Driven by an endless curiosity, Ray is committed to working with his clients to be a “building consultant for life,” and act as a source of information and a sounding board long after his clients move into their new homes.
Growing up in Bowdoinham and now residing in Freeport, Ray has specialized knowledge about the buildings throughout Midcoast and Southern Maine. Our coastal region has buildings unlike anywhere else on the planet; hot summers to frigid winters, a strong shipbuilding community, and a creative population surviving off the land have all influenced how houses are been built here.
Ray was called to determine some home challenges. (an undiscovered leak) . He not only found the leak but I called him back to do a complete home inspection as he was such a pleasure to work with and we have an old house. He was thorough, communicative with my husband, and sent a complete report with suggestions, some articles to review and followed up on top of that. He was very professional and described systems well. I would not hesitate to recommend him.
We bought our first home this fall and Ray did the inspection for us. He was professional, prompt, and thorough. He went over the entire house from top to bottom and gave us an extremely detailed report of the structural integrity of the home, the electrical system, the heat, hot water, chimney, etc. In the report was everything one can tell from a visual inspection that might become a potential issue in the future. He made sure we understood everything he was doing, and answered all of our questions thoroughly. I would absolutely recommend Ray to anyone buying a home. 100% worth it for peace of mind.
Rayna was professional, full of knowledge and exceptionally keen, particularly when it came to providing us an understanding of what we were getting into with our “new” (very old) house. Highly recommended.
Ray was an absolute professional to work with who was extremely knowledgeable, thorough, and took the time to educate us on every aspect that was inspected. As a first time homebuyer I felt that the teaching aspect was just as important as making sure the property was a worthwhile endeavor. Worth every penny!
