What Do You Inspect?

NYS defines a home Inspection as the process by which a home inspector observes and provides a written report of the systems and components of a residential building including but not limited to:

  • Cooling System
  • Plumbing System

  • Structural Components – foundation, roof masonry structure, exterior and interior components or any other related residential building component recommended by the Home Inspection Council and implemented by the Department of State through the regulatory process.

How Do You Report?

We use reporting software which includes both pictures and a narrative. The report is broken down by components of the house and is concise, detailed and easy to comprehend.
