Born of Deaf parents, he can speak ASL (American Sign Language) and communicate with deaf clients.

Derek brings to the inspection process his background in real estate. His goal is to assist buyers in evaluating properties they are considering for purchase. He inspects each property for his clients with the same scrutiny, as if a close family member were buying it. Taking time on each inspection to explain how things work and how to maintain your new home.

Tom Carmichael:  Home Inspector
Tom Carmichael
TCarmichael@FletcherInspections.com

Tom was a residential carpenter and eventually foreman of a rough framing crew for nine years starting in 1995. He worked primarily as a subcontractor for Pulte homes building hundreds of houses right here in Washtenaw County. As the market slowed and houses were harder to come by, he went back to school to pursue a construction field related degree. While attending WCC he worked part time on a siding/ roofing crew out of Saline that did home improvements. At Washtenaw he excelled in math and science which is what lead to the decision to become an engineer. He finished WCC with an associate degree in math and physical science.

He was accepted into the civil engineering program at Lawrence Technological University in 2006. In the same year he accepted an apprenticeship on the staff of an engineering firm that had a contract to work the Ann Arbor resurfacing street projects. When he received his BS in Civil Engineering in 2009, he became a full time employee at the company and began serious work in the industry. He was a senior materials testing technician, which made him responsible for concrete testing, soil stability and compaction, and asphalt testing and extraction. He is still currently certified as a level I technician for concrete by the American Concrete Institute (ACI) and Michigan Concrete Association (MCA) and am MDOT certified in Soils and Aggregates.

The need for year round work and more flexibility to spend time with his family facilitated the need to leave the commercial/ municipal field and transition back to his first love of residential construction.
