About General Inspections


Founder of General Inspections, Inc., one of the leading home inspection companies in Northwest Ohio & Southeast Michigan, Richard Jones has been involved in the building industry since the late 1970’s and was a Plant Engineering Manager for a local Fortune 500 company in the 1990′s.

During this period, he was also an Ohio state certified instructor for the construction industry’s continuing education program.  In 1999, he founded General Inspections, Inc. in Perrysburg, Ohio in order to fill a need for honest, accurate home inspections for the general public.  The business has grown steadily, helped by Richard's positive philosophy and his ability to effectively communicate the condition of homes to his clients.  Serving over 12 counties, the firm remains a major presence in the competitive home inspection market.  He is married with two children, and has six grandchildren with whom he enjoys golfing and trips to Fifth Third Field to root for the Toledo Mudhens.
