About Us

After 25 years of running an award winning and nationally recognized home inspection franchise, Rick Contonio, the owner of American Home Inspections, decided it was time to start a new company that represented the values and professionalism his inspections have shown over the decades. Out of that was born American Home Inspections, a local leader in the Massachusetts home inspection industry.

  • Rick Contonio was fantastic. Really thorough -- and super patient.  He listened to (all of) our concerns and took great care to make sure everything we had on our minds was addressed (which took a lot longer than he probably thought it would.) He knows so much about so many things. We've had quite a few inspectors in our tenure as homeowners, and Rick was by far the most informed.  And -- he's a super friendly and pleasant guy!  Stellar.

    T.B. - Westboro, MA
  • Thank you for making the inspection process enjoyable and understandable! I felt all my questions were addressed honestly and that the inspection was detailed and very thorough. I would recommend to everyone!

  • Rick was very detailed in his investigation and did a wonderful job of explaining what he saw & why. The home he inspected for us had some features that were new to us and he was very patient & courteous with us. He even took some time out to look over a few items that did not necessarily fit into his scope of investigation. I would highly recommend Rick for any home inspection.

  • Buying a new house is not something I take lightly. I only understand the basic concepts of electrical, plumbing, etc. so I rely on a trained eye to not only see the issues but also tell me when things are done properly. We had a home inspection today with Richard Contonio in Charlton, MA and he was very thorough and took the time to explain the good as well as the not so good. He also was able to put the deficiencies into context as far as major or minor issues. We definitely feel more comfortable about what we are buying after talking to Rick.

  • Very thorough. This should be the industry standard. We have used Rick in the past and would not have it any other way. I have seen other inspectors not even bother with the great detail you provide. Thank you so much, well worth the investment.

  • I felt very comfortable with my inspector. Buying a home can be a very stressful time. Rick was very professional taking time to listen and address questions we had. He showed us things we might overlook that a trained professional like Rick would not.
