TITLE GOES HERE
My wife Shelly and I were married in 1982 while attending the University of Akron. We currently reside in Wadsworth where we have been since 1988. We have been blessed with two married adult children four wonderful grandchildren.
Shelly is a retired school nurse and is now teaching piano lessons. I spent over 30 years as a software engineer at a local company. That experience taught me to pay attention to detail and to get it right the first time. I apply those lessons to my property inspections every day.
Our son Matt joined the team in March 2021 as a Radon Technician and will be a great asset.
Our Personal Background
I (Tom) first developed my love for houses as a young boy when I had the priceless opportunity to “help” my father build our family home. I remember digging the basement floor drains with a pick and shovel and learning how to lay the clay tile which was the norm of the day. The best part of the day was the short nap we took after eating our lunch. I tried to rest my head on my lunch bucket the same way my father did. For the 2018, 2019 and 2020-2021 school years I have been employed by the Wadsworth City Schools as the assistant to the head carpenter for the Four Cities Compact carpentry program. This program provides senior carpentry students the opportunity to build a home from the ground up and is a phenomenal experience.
Matt wears many hats. He is the high school coordinator with Youth for Christ in Wadsworth where he is actively involved with many at risk youth. In the fall season he roams the sidelines as an assistant coach with the Wadsworth High School football team teaching, encouraging and challenging the players. We are excited to have him as part of the Footer To Ridge team as well.
Both Matt and I have a passion for people. We consider our services to be an opportunity to serve, and will treat all people with respect. We firmly believe that honesty is in fact the best policy and will therefore present our inspection observations with as much integrity and accuracy as we possibly can.
We would be honored to provide your inspection services.
