Old House Inspection Specialists

Colonials, Victorians, Queen Anne, Bungalows

There is something special about living in an old house. If you are considering purchasing an old or historic house in Rhode Island or Massachusetts contact Hearthstone Home Inspection to avoid spending historic amounts to repair or maintain the property.

We have inspected thousands of old houses from 300-year old historic colonials to 120-year old Victorians to 40 year old bungalows, plus every style and era in-between.

We have a passion for understanding the way old houses were built; from the materials used to the construction practices and tools common for different eras and styles. More importantly to you, we have the experience to understand the concerns and peculiarities associated with old houses.
