Introduction: My loyalty is to the home buyer or home owner, not to a third party (a real estate agent or a roofing company). I am a trained and educated building maintenance and repair professional with over 40 years of residential and commercial building management experience. i have worked in older buildings in NYC since 1995. I have advanced education in Building Management and I am a Haag Certified Roof Inspector. I take my time with inspections. if the inspection takes longer because i am finding a lot to document, so be it. I will remain and document at no additional charge to you. For home owners, i offer maintenance consultations and leak detection services. As a Haag Certified Inspector, I also offer roof consultations for low slope (flat) roofs. If you want an industry trained professional and wish to learn from a pro, please contact me. If you are looking for someone to rush over things and sell you a line of BS, call the home inspector your real estate agent recommends. There is a reason they are recommending that person.

We never owned a home before, and had another company inspect our place before we moved in. That inspection lasted less than 2 hours, and we felt he wasn't thorough enough. We wanted another inspection and Steve was recommended to us. He ended up dissecting our house for over 5 hours and went over absolutely everything. He spent an hour on the roof and pointed out an open seam, and instructed us how to get it fixed and to have the roof painted. The previous inspector missed the open seam. He sent something down the chimney to look inside and photograph it. He took photos of every crack in the cement and every cracked brick. He checked every outlet he could access and told us we needed GFCI outlets in the kitchen and bathrooms. He looked under every sink and pointed out something in a drain he thought might leak soon, something the other inspector missed. He showed us how to take out window sashes so we can take one with bad glass to a shop to get it replaced. He inspected the boiler and pointed out black soot on parts of it. When he turned it on and opened a little flap on it, some smoke and flame came out of the flap. Steve said the boiler was very dirty and needed to be cleaned. The other inspector did not say anything about this. We hired a furnace company and they said it was very dirty and should have been cleaned years ago. Steve also showed us how to drain the safety shutoff on the boiler and told us if that gets filled with sediment, it will not work. He checked the electric panel and found a 20 amp breaker on too small a wire, another thing the original inspector missed. He also looked around the basement and said he did not see evidence of termites. Steve sent us a report that was twice as long as the first inspector's. He thoroughly explained everything in a way that was easy to understand, unlike the first guy who talked at us like we were experts. Steve was such a patient teacher and he told me that he is doing longer consultations for new homeowners who need help understanding the basics - like us! I recommend him for this service as it was a real learning experience. This was the best money we have spent on our house so far!

Steve provided an incredible service. We are new home owners and preparing for a renovation project. Steve conducted a thorough maintenance inspection of our home and uncovered issues that were hidden by the previous owner and not found by our previous home inspector. Some of these issues are critical and would have become dangerous had we not uncovered with Steve. Steve was incredibly responsive, provided a detailed report, and truly went above and beyond. Steve’s wealth of knowledge and experience are incredibly valuable.
