When looking to purchase or sell a home, a property inspection ensures that the residence is safe and reliable for years, and it is usually required for mortgage loans and insurance. For sellers, it protects you from lawsuits and other issues after the buyer takes ownership. For purchasers, it protects you from surprise expenses later on and helps to make the home functionally safe, durable, and habitable.

New Paltz Home Inspections from A to Z
In order to satisfy the mortgage lender, the underwriter for the insurance company, and the owner or purchaser, we inspect more than just the basics and do not skim over areas just to get it done. Whether the property is big or small, we inspect it the same way as any other property. We cover every area in great detail, no matter how long it takes.
Our inspection service includes:
- Detailed exterior inspections: Entry doors, garage doors, windows, storm doors, siding, under-siding walls, roofs, gutter systems, foundation surfaces, porches, patios, and more
- Interior inspections: Walls, interior doors, steps, railing, floors, countertops, sinks, bathroom fixtures, heating and cooling systems, basement walls, subfloors, built-in appliances, and much more
- Attic inspections: Trusses, ceiling boards, insulation coverage, ventilation, and more
For exterior analysis, our inspectors check the entry doors to ensure they are safe during use, lockable, and secured well. We check porches and patios to make sure they have solid flooring and that there is no potential for water damage underneath or above. We inspect railing to ensure code compliance and safety. Attic ventilation is reviewed to ensure proper airflow and code compliance. We also check for water damage underneath the roof while we are in the attic.
Inside the home, we inspect the entry doors for level operation and weather-sealing capabilities. All floors are tested for squeaking, warping, and water damage. The furnace (if applicable) is checked for proper operation and proper duct distribution throughout the home. Steps and railing are inspected for safety and durability. We also make sure that the kitchen countertop is properly installed and fastened. All sinks are checked for leaks and functionality. The list can go on.
Quality Home Inspections
Do not come back to the home to discover that someone broke in through a defective window lock or a failed mechanism. Do not discover later that you had a small leak in the corner of the attic that ran down the wall in the bedroom and caused mold or drywall rot. Do not get sued because someone grabbed a loose railing on the steps. Above all, do not get stuck spending more money on major repairs that could have been prevented. As a rental owner or even as a buyer, you will not see everything during your visits. A lot of things go unnoticed for quite some time, but we discover them for you to help keep you safe from danger and protected from sudden expenses.
