First off Where does the Name AnnRuel come from?
AnnRuel is the middle names of Marlene Ann MacNaughton and James Ruel MacNaughton the Owners of AnnRuel Home Inspections
When did AnnRuel Start?
AnnRuel was first formed in 1980 as AnnRuel Services  As the years went on, Home Inspections appeared to be the majority of the business with thousands of  insurance inspections under his belt for companies such as Allstate, USAA, Tower Insurance, Liberty mutual and many financial lenders, Jim decided to use these talents where he was trained to inspect above and beyond what a normal home Inspection  would be able to do, to become AnnRuel Home Inspections. Along with the years spent building homes with his father this was a great fit.
After several years of taking courses through Internachi, Southern Maine Community College and water test classes from Rutgers University as well as Radon Air testing through Spruce Environmental , AnnRuel Services now offers complete Home Inspections as a certified home inspector serving Maine. Based in Oakland Maine
How much notice do you need before an Inspection?
We are a  two man team that cuts the inspection time in half making it possible to book more jobs. We try  to book the first inspection of the day before noon so that we can have time open for last minute inspections later in the day. So we may like to have a week or two notice but we have been able to fit in all last minute jobs
What is a Home Physical?
This is where every year or every other year, We come back and do a light inspection to see how everything in your home is holding up and to find what new problems might be about to happen and hopefully prevent costly losses. Usually we find things that can be fixed for a few hundred dollars and saves thousands of dollars of damage
What is Insurance Photography?
This can be anything and everything from shooting all aspects of a property that shows the building and cosmetic features to property damage or photos of special things you want your insurance to cover.
What is the difference from a handyman and a contractor?
A contractor builds from the ground up and works with all aspects of the construction, and a handyman has basic knowledge in a lot of practical  purposes of construction but should only be used for repairs and minor construction.
