Richard Winters Owner / Inspector - Armada Inspection Services

Richard Winters was born and raised near Roebuck, right here in Leeds-Grenville. He has been involved in construction since an early age. Being hands on is all that he has ever known. Rather then go to college to finish his machinist apprenticeship he decided to see the world and serve his country at the same time, so he joined the RCN as a Hull Technician. The training requirements for this trade were so tough it had one of the highest failure rates in the military. 30 years later, Richard retired as a Chief Petty Officer Second Class. 

Hull Technicians are experts in the fields of all things Structural, Mechanical Systems, Fire Fighting, Helicopter Crash Rescue, and Damage Control. They are Master Fabricators & Installers, and are also known to be among the very best Quality Assurance (QA) and Safety Inspectors in the Navy. They are highly sought out be industry. Hull Technicians were Reconstruction Estimators in Bosnia & Armour Upgrade Installers in Afghanistan to name a few. Hull Technicians of his skill level are granted 3rd year apprentice status in more than 6 Red Seal trades. He is currently working towards 2 of these certifications, his Plumbers and his Gas Fitters tickets.

Over his career, Richard has worked on numerous Habitat For Humanity construction projects. Hull Technicians are highly sought after on these projects. They are exceptional site foreman, draftsman, blue print readers, carpenters, plumbers, sheet metal workers, heating and a/c, cabinet makers, and trim and finish experts. 

Armada is the Spanish word for Navy. The Armada logo is the work of a New Zealand artist. It is the Maori face of Neptune.

Rick is a proud member of the Ontario Association of Certified Home Inspectors (OntarioACHI). 

Be warned. Don’t get him talking about old cars and hot rods. He loves to build them and work on them. He just loves hot rods, especially his 39 Plymouth and 62 GMC Step Side that Carol Anne likes to claim as hers…

Each inspection is unique, yet one thing will remain constant. Armada Inspection Services will bring the best diagnostic equipment to every inspection. Richard Winters is a stubborn, detail driven individual who pushes to do his very best daily. He brought the Navy’s operating philosophy to Armada.
