Expert Long Island Home Inspectors

When you buy a car, you take it for a test drive. You check up on its performance and safety ratings. If you are thinking about the purchase of a home, obviously you cannot take it for a test drive like a car. There are no performance or safety ratings published on that house like with cars. So, how can you be certain the house is safe and in good shape “under the hood” – in areas you can’t necessarily see? You can order a thorough house inspection by a reputable Long Island home inspection company like ours. We have been inspecting homes across the 631, 516, 718 and 212 area codes for more than 25-years. We have built a first-rate reputation as meticulous, ethical, and highly-skilled inspectors.

 Why you need an inspection

Whether you are purchasing, building, or selling a home, knowing the condition of a structure can be critical. You will want to know if there are any issues or areas of concern with your new home before you buy it.
A detailed assessment of the structure and its major systems conducted by one of our qualified technicians can provide valuable information regarding the condition of the property.

 

Selling: If you are selling a home, you would be very wise to get your house inspected first. We’ve been in the business for years, so please trust us when we tell you it is better to order a Pre-listing inspection rather than waiting for a potential buyer to order their own and uncover a problem. When it comes to the condition of your home, surprise issues could mean losing an offer from a potential buyer. Identifying issues ahead of listing your home allows you the opportunity to either address them before listing your home or providing disclosure to any potential buyers. A pre-listing inspection lets you set the selling price accordingly or provide full disclosure to potential buyers.

 

Buying: If you are purchasing a property, knowing the quality of what you are buying is critical. A pre-purchase inspection by a highly reputable inspector allows you to make a fully-informed decision as to whether you would like to continue with a purchase, re-evaluate your original offer, or back out completely. A thorough pre-purchase assessment will identify any issues of concern and the possible costs involved in remediating them.

 

New build: If you are purchasing a newly-built house, it is prudent to have a thorough new-build assessment done before taking possession or closing on the house. It’s not uncommon for something to turn up on a new-build anlaysis – usually along the lines of something installed incorrectly or not at all.

Technology and Assessments

We equip each of our Long Island home inspectors with the latest technology including detection devices to uncover issues not always evident during a visual examination. The latest technology allows the greatest efficiency in conducting any assessment thoroughly.

We can perform EIFS moisture testing, thermal screening, termite, and windstorm inspections. We also assess ventilation, water seepage, insulation, chimneys, attics, crawl spaces, basement, framing system, foundation and other structural components. We will examine all of the mechanical systems, such as air conditioning, heat, electric and plumbing systems as well as built-in appliances. Our employees will inspect or assess any space they can readily access within a structure, meaning that our home reviews are always thorough.


Inspections and Reports  

In addition to our reviews, we take great pride in our written reports. Each of our technicians understands the importance of these highly-detailed, written reports. After a comprehensive assessment of the structure, the client will receive a report of all our findings. Any areas of concern will be photographed and included in the written report.

Customers are encouraged to attend the inspection, and our inspectors will gladly answer any questions that a client may have. We will point out the positive as well as any areas of concern with the structure and offer suggestions or solutions for long-term maintenance or remediation of the issue. Our reports are prepared solely for the client, and all of the information contained within a report will remain confidential. We will provide additional copies of your report as needed.

We offer our standard house inspections for all of our clients, but we can also tailor our inspection to what suits you. For example, sometimes some of our existing or new clients will request only a termite inspection as they might not be buying or selling their residence or property but rather just want to stay informed of what is going on within their dwelling.
