What We Inspect and Why
A home inspection is a visual examination of the home's major structure, systems, and components that are visible and safely accessible. Buying a home is typically the biggest investment you will ever make, so it's important to get a home inspection because the inspector can find and document defects that may or may not be obvious to you as a prospective buyer. Such defects can range from simple replacements or repairs to severe damage or safety and health concerns.
Interior, exterior, walls, windows, and doors
HVAC (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning)
Basement, crawlspace, and structure
Roof and attic
Meet Your Inspector
I taught high school agriculture for 37 years. One of my classes was called "Agriculture Structures" where I taught electricity, masonry, carpentry, and plumbing. During my tenure as a teacher, I also did many side jobs as a builder. I designed and built a house to sell from start to finish as well as many "handy man" type jobs.
My classroom teaching experience, coupled with my real-world practical experiences in construction, made the business of home inspections an easy fit.
I am a member of InterNACHI®, an InterNACHI® Certified Home Inspector, and a Certified Professional Inspector CPI® (NACHI 21010420). I am a graduate of InterNACHI® School (internachi.edu) with a Certified Home Inspector Certificate. I am licensed New York State Home Inspector (#160000124791)

Choosing the right home inspector can be difficult. Unlike most professionals you hire, you probably won't meet me until our appointment. Furthermore, different inspectors have varying qualifications, equipment, experience, reporting methods, and pricing.
Ultimately, a thorough home inspection depends heavily on the individual inspector’s own effort. If you honor me by permitting me to inspect your new home, I guarantee that I will give you my very best effort.
This, I promise you.
