Home Inspection reviews in Setauket

  • I cannot recommend Above & Beyond Carpenter and Mark Wirth highly enough. He has exceeded all our expectations and proven himself an expert carpenter and craftsman with high standards of quality, professionalism, honesty and customer service. In fact, I consider Mark to be a member of our family. It is very rare to find a contractor or any professional of his caliber.

  • Steven charged us $600 for inspection of a 3,200-square-foot home. He was punctual, meticulous and patient with all our questions. Our only quibble regarding the inspection itself is that he did not go up on the roof, which we were expecting at this price point. However, we did have concerns about Steven's professionalism. About three hours in, the tenants living in the house kicked us out, saying the inspection had gone on too long. We don't fault Steven for the tenant's poor behavior. However, Steven reacted angrily. He told us that he would charge $300 for a revisit, double if he saw the tenants again, and triple if they treated him like that again. He said that this fee should be the owner's responsibility. Later, we informed Stephen that the owner did not consent to this, but he did not change his pricing. Given that Steven had already charged us $600, we did not feel that this was reasonable for what would be a short revisit to finish inspecting the first-floor windows. He did not finish the job we hired him to do. This was not the professionalism we expected from a highly rated Angie's List home inspector. We got a fresh inspection with a different inspector the next time and were much happier.

  • We discovered a termite colony by accident in the back yard over the weekend. After some web research & looking on Angieslist - I decided to ask Arnie Fishon's ABCO Termite & Pest Control to deal with the problem. I called him Sunday morning and he arrived within the hour - you can't beat that for service! He rapidly confirmed that it was indeed termites, proposed a treatment method and plan, and very much set my mind at rest. He and his son arrived the following day and completed the entire job, including installing 24 baiting stations, within about 90 mins. The plan includes 3 regular visits a year, both checking and if necessary priming the bait stations with termite poison, plus a first check in a month, and also re-spraying the house perimeter for general bug control. Treatment of any other future bug/pest issues are also included. I found Arnie & his son to be both extremely helpful and friendly, and also true professionals in the way they went about their work, and the way they reassured me. I believe the plan to be good value and comprehensive in its coverage. I would recommend them very highly indeed to anyone requiring this type of service. The fact that they are a local, family-owned business is also in my view a very big plus. Thanks Arnie!!!

  • Rich arrived at my home on time and  spent 3 hours going through every part of home with me.  During the inspection, he kindly explained to me each problem he discovered.   He is a very thorough and a real professional. He photographed each problem area and later incorporated these photos in his report.  A day later, as promised he emailed me a detailed report (PDF file) of his inspection,and the termite inspection and told me to call him any time if I had any questions about my home. Bottom line is, Rich is knows what he is doing and is a great guy.   Based on my experience with him, I can recommend him strongly to anyone who is buying or selling a home.

  • The inspection itself went very well.  Chris was punctual and professional.  He seemed very thorough and patient, and he explained everything clearly.  He went through every appliance, sink, toilet, closet, crawlspace, utility, climbed on the roof, went under the deck. He did find an area that had termites on the side of the house.  I came away from the inspection feeling like I had a very good sense of the shape the home was in, which is what you really hope for.  The report was very thorough and included photos and a summary of the key areas of concern.  We have now been living in this home and there hasn't been anything that has come up that has made us say "how did Chris miss that?"
    The only thing I had to lower the score for was a lack of responsiveness after the inspection.  We were originally promised to get our report within 24 hours.  We did receive a termite report shortly after the inspection, but the main report did not arrive.  I attempted to call, left messages, and sent emails, but didn't get a response.  We finally got in touch with him and got our report about 48 hours after the job.  Since we were in the middle of contract negotiations this lack of communication was very stressful.  I honestly believe that the delay in getting the report was probably atypical and unintentional, and that most people would not have that problem.  But I do think if I contact them in several different ways that they should be on top of checking voicemail/email and at least getting back by the end of the day.
    In the end, I would still recommend A-Pro, as they were great in all the areas that matter the most.  I just hope they are a bit more on top of making sure the client has the report in their hands in the future.

  • All I can say is WOW! Meticulous Home Inspection provided a thorough, detailed, 3-hour inspection of the house we wanted to buy. Extremely complete inspection done by a highly qualified professional who has obviously been doing this for years and knows what he's doing: Roof, windows, plumbing, landscape, property grade, moisture, cooling, heating, foundation, the list goes on. Our inspection report was a full 22 pages, complete with color pictures, in clear, easy-to-read english that included not only the items in question, but recommendations on fixing the issues found, and comments on items ithat were in good or excellent shape as well.

    What sets Meticulous apart from other home inspection services is that they offer to do a comprehensive, verbal review at the conclusion of the inspection with both the Seller AND the Buyer together (optional), so that everyone is on the same page with the results. We did this, and were very pleased that we did. I think the Sellers appreciated the info too.

    Our inspection turned up about 15 issues with the house. Some were minor, others were small, and thankfully none were major. We got the written report via email the NEXT DAY.

    In the end we bought the house, and thanks to Meticulous we knew EXACTLY what we were getting ourselves into.

    Meticulous Home Inspection is highly professional, licensed, knowledgeable and well connected across the Home Service field. We highly, highly, highly recommend them. Their advertising slogan is for real: Don't Be Ridiculous, Call Meticulous

  • Dominic is very professional, courtesy, thorough, and responsive. He provided a very detail inspection reports online with many pictures to show you the issues. You can review the reports online instantly and frequently. I also called and emailed him many times to ask questions and the conditions of the property. He was very patient and tried to explain everything to you clearly. He also recommended contractors, plumbers, electrician, A/C companies he knows when I asked for recommendation. His service was way beyond what an inspector should do. He is excellent! You won't regret to hire him to do the inspection service.
