As A Home Inspector I Am IMPARTIAL AND WORK only FOR YOU

I am impartial and work only for you.  My job is to provide you with a comprehensive, fair, independent, objective evaluation so that you can understand and take care of your valuable investment.  Your interests are my interests before, during, and after the inspection.

The inspection process provides an invaluable learning and discovery experience during which your questions can be answered on the spot.  You will gain insight into maintenance and energy conservation tailored specifically to your home.  I wholeheartedly encourage you to accompany me during the inspection.  In addition, all of my clients are offered free telephone consultation after the inspection and as often as they need, I am always available to answer questions.


I have been a builder for almost three decades.  My whole professional life has been centered in my commitment to delivering a quality product and excellent service to my clients.  And, I began to realize that too many individuals who were providing inspections for my clients that had purchased homes from me did not share this same dedication to quality.  These inspectors had little or no experience about construction and basically lacked any real qualifications to perform these inspections and provide the homeowner with the fair and accurate inspection report that they paid for, deserve and need. I believe and recognize that there are certainly some qualified inspectors out there but it is not always easy to pick them out of the crowd.   You need to do a lot of homework to find them.

I take great pride in my hard-earned reputation for excellence, which comes from both my education and decades of construction experience and my relationship with my clients. I became a Home Inspector because I knew that I could bring this same level of professional excellence to home inspections.    Our inspection services offer both the experience and the necessary qualifications to a service that I saw was lacking in these areas.

As an InterNACHI and ASHI certified home inspector and an AHIT trained inspector  you are hiring an inspector that is a member of both of the largest nonprofit associations of residential and commercial home inspectors.  InterNACHI and ASHI provide their members  with accredited training and education, expert advice and peer support – all to help them serve their homeowner clients by providing them with the highest quality inspections.

My standard home inspection is an evaluation of the visible and accessible interior and exterior structure, system and components of the home following the NY State Standards of practice for home inspectors.  Your report will include my findings of any material defects I discover in an easy-to-read format.  I will also provide my recommendations for monitoring, repair or replacement.

My job isn’t finished until you understand everything in your report.
