Proudly performing home inspections in Suffolk and Nassau County Long Island Since 1999
When Knowledge and Experience Count
A home is the biggest purchase you will ever make, so it is very important to understand its condition before you sign on the dotted line. I will provide you the information you need to guard your investment. Not only do I inspect the major components of the house I also look for the minor defects that sometimes get overlooked. I try to provide my clients with a complete understanding of the condition of the home so they can make a smart decision.
I realize that the decision to buy a home on Long Island is often lengthy and complicated. Much of the guesswork lies in not knowing the general condition of a home. However, by arranging a home inspection much of that guesswork disappears. Quite simply, the more informed a home buyer becomes the more likely he or she will make a more educated decision.
A Homeguard home inspection identifies problems and offers solutions. My evaluation includes the home’s structure, systems and components from the foundation to the roof. I use the latest in tools and technology, including a moisture meter, gas detector, carbon-monoxide detector, electrical circuit analyzer, laser thermometer, LED microwave oven leak detector, digital and snake cameras, and a FLIR thermal imaging camera. I inspect all of the following when visible and accessible;
- Roof and Gutters
- Foundation, Basement, Crawlspace and Slabs
- Windows and Doors
- Exterior Siding
- Central Heating and Cooling System
- Electrical System
- Plumbing System
- Attic, Insulation & Ventilation
- Porches and Decks
- Walls, Ceilings and Floors
- Sidewalks and Driveways
- Attached Garages
- Interior Structure
I strongly encourage all of my clients to accompany me during my inspections.
You should feel free to ask me any questions you may have during the inspection process. I will point out problems and explain them to you. I will show you the good points of the house as well. Plus, I will explain what routine maintenance is needed to keep the house in top condition. This will help you to get the most benefit from the inspection and gain the most understanding of the systems that make up your home, and how to maintain them.
Your comprehensive yet easy-to-read report will include a summary of the most important findings, as well as detailed descriptions and color digital photos of any defects I discover. Your report will be emailed to you within 24 hours, and my job is not finished until you understand everything in it.
