Finding a properly trained home inspector in Suffolk County, Long Island can be difficult. There are some really good companies on Long Island, but most are inexperienced and some are just licensed contractors.

We also protect the home with a wood destroying insect warranty for 1 year via Knockout Pest Control.
Some questions to ask sellers when making an offer on a property.
How old is the home and did make any renovations to the property.
Is the home on sewers or cesspool? If a cesspool, was it pumped or replaced? Remember that any cesspool before 1974 was built with a block system that can collapse. Suffolk County is now giving grant money for homeowners that want to upgrade the cesspool system.
Was the home damaged by Hurricane Sandy in 2012.
Do you see stains or cracks on the foundation wall in the basement?
How many layers of roofing are present?
Is the electrical panel working with todays standards? If you have any questions, please reach out to us.
Does the homeowner have any termite guarantee or appliance warranty on the property?
Is there any significant notching in any structural members?
Are the basement windows too low to the ground?
Is the property sloped toward the home? This would lead to water penetration.
Watch out for those open floor plans without proper permits.
Be careful in regards to finished basements without 2 exits . You will need a proper Egress window.
