WHO WE ARE

CERTIFIED INSPECTORS WITH OVER 30 YEARS OF EXPERIENCE

With over 30 years of experience, we work hard to give each customer the best possible service and quality. Every house, no matter how old it is, has several “systems” that our inspectors will check during every inspection. This includes an exhaustive evaluation of the kitchen, bathroom, laundry, fireplace, heating, furnace, electrical service, plumbing systems, hot water tank, air conditioning, roof and ventilation, chimney, attic, exterior walls, exterior grounds, garage, and foundation. These areas need to function properly to ensure you enjoy your new house and not worry about major expenses.

We’ve been working on houses for more than 30 years, and we know what it takes to make a home a safe, comfortable place. We’re here to help you make informed decisions—using our knowledge of the industry and the best interests of our clients at heart.

Our team is New York State Certified, which means we’ve undergone rigorous training to identify home problems, so you don’t have to worry about them down the line. We’ll check out more than 400 points of inspection to ensure this house is right for you! We’ll inform you if any major issues are found. This way, you and your real estate professional can work with the seller to remediate the situation before you sign on the dotted line.
