I think a home inspector is probably the most important key to buying a home. If your spending 100's of 1000's of dollars for a piece of property you sure want to know what you are buying. We were referred to Precision Home Inspection of America from 3 of our friends that had used them. They raved about them and the fact that they sent two inspectors to complete the inspection. We had names of other inspection companies given to us by the real estate agent to call as well. All together we called 4 inspection companies and when I called Precision I spoke to one of the owners whose name is Hank. He explained the whole inspection process to me which made me feel more confident in their ability. The other people I called just asked how big the property was and gave me a fee and really didn't explain anything. When the two inspectors came they asked if we would follow them around so they could explain items to us as they came up. We followed them through the inspection and they not only explained items that needs repair but also explained to us how the heating, AC, electric, and plumbing systems worked. We received a great education. We received the report the following day. The report was filled with many pictures that were diagrammed with circles and arrows that pin pointed exactly what we needed to look at in the picture. We had a number of questions about the report and when we called Precision they answered all the questions we had and spent at least a half hour talking to us. We also received two books, one on home systems and maintenance and the other on how to go about completing a home remodeling project which was written by Hank. We would like to commend this company for providing a great service. Buying a home is a scary experience and we are glad that we had this company lessen our anxiety about the purchase. They were very friendly and they even discussed some of their findings with the owner of the property which eliminated us telling the problems found through the real estate agents. WE will gladly refer this company to all our friends and relatives. They really seem to care very much about what they do and do it quite well.

We did our homework and wanted an independent home inspector to do our home inspection. We felt it didn't make sense to hire an inspector recommended by the agent because the agent wants us to buy the house .... dah. We looked through various search engines and came across as it turns out a one of a kind company. This is the third time we have used a home inspector and this company was so much better than the other two it was amazing. We read the one poor evaluation in this post and our experience was totally opposite.

They send two inspectors that do a very thorough inspection. Their report is very comprehensive and they are always available for consultation. The 2 books they provide with their inspection were very informative and useful. I highly recommend them.

A terrific job. Highly recommend they are extremely knowledgeable. We chose this company instead of the real estate agent recommended company because we wanted to get someone who was independent from the sale. We are glad we did.

These guys know their stuff. If you want to get a thorough inspection by real professionals this is the company. Sending two inspectors is what sold me. They were meticulous and the report was inclusive. The books were very useful and we have recommended them to several people.

They seem professional...for the most part. However they were not very thorough and missed many key and expensive items that were found later by a second inspection. They failed to check all the appliances (fridge and washer/dryer). In the report they are more worried about covering for themselves than the quality of the work for example the water pipe "may be leaking but is hard to get to" and one of the appliances they never checked "appears serviceable". It is an appliance so I guess it is serviceable but....is it working? For the amount they charge $500+ depending on the home, they provide the services associated with a basic home inspector ($125) who for a quarter of the cost would probably do a better job. Not at all what you expect from an engineers report. Also, they claim to be 200% guaranteed, until you tell them you are unhappy and want your money back, then the story changes very quickly into "I explained your concerns so you should now be happy". An engineers report should contain clear photos (they were terrible they didn't even use a flash for the attic pics), be well organized, contain a summary and ideally rough estimates for repair costs. Do not expect any of this.

Business Response:

As New York State licensed home inspectors we are regulated by performing a strictly visual inspection. We do not take items apart nor remove items such floor tile to find out if a floor drain may have a leak. Not sure who this review was done by because the persons name is not revealed. I suspect this review is possibly done by a competitor? We have over 65 reviews to date on numerous review sites and this is the only one that has any negative content....maybe that should tell you something about this review. I have never heard of a basic home inspection for a fee of $125. I strongly suggest anyone who is interested in using our services go to http://www.longislandhomeinspection.org to see a recent inspection report we completed for a client and judge the quality that this review questions.
