My name is Rick Kast, owner, inspector, and founder of Red Mill Home Inspections. I am a Master Carpenter, an InterNACHI Certified Home Inspector, A NYS Licensed Home Inspector, and a Licensed Westchester County Contractor. I am also a member of ASHI (#261854), A CT Licenced Home Inspector (#0000836), and a NYS Home Inspector Instructor. I have spent the vast majority of my life building a great deal of hands-on experience and training that is irreplaceable during a home inspection. As a Master Carpenter, I have been involved in home renovations, residential and commercial carpentry, and home inspection industries for over 38 years with a degree in Applied Sciences from Westchester Community College. I bring a great deal of experience, training, and knowledge to each and every home inspection. I take pride in being able to see an issue, understand it, and then to be able to explain it in understandable terms. This is possible because very likely I have fixed that type of issue with my own two hands.
