I performed a home inspection a couple years back in Rensselaer NY for a nice couple. Well, the house had a couple of issues that they were not willing to take on. Long story short, they tried to hire me for another home inspection, but had to hire another home inspector for their next home because I believe I was out of town or booked up. But when they had a question years later, which home inspector did they contat? Me :). After helping them, here is what they had to say:
"I had Ian do an inspection in my first house we wanted to live in and he was just excellent as he arrived 35 minutes early and showed us everything that had issues! In the end we never bought that house but due to Ian's extreme knowledge we could have been in trouble. Even to this day if a question comes up he is very friendly and will try to assist you."

"Description Of Work:
Wood Destroying Organisms
Ian did a fantastic job and I would absolutely recommend him. We used Ian for two home inspections this year. This first inspection he found a significant number of major issues, and saved us from a real headache down the road. We happily used him again when we found another house that we were interested in. Luckily this house was in much better condition. He is extremely thorough and his reports are very clear and easy to read!"

Another Great Review from a client! This review was placed on Angie's List
Pre-Listing Home Inspection Review
"I asked for the inspection since I plan on putting my house on the market in the spring and I wanted to to identify any issues that I may encounter when a buyer hires a home inspector for my house. Ian was very professional and explained each issue and its level of severity. He further explained how my home may be viewed by other inspectors. He responded quickly when I emailed him to get further clarification.
Based on Ian's inspection, I am having one issues fixed and I have my winter "punch list" to spruce up my house for a spring sale.
Description of work:Ian performed a full house inspection include Radon and termite inspection. He produced a 30+ page report identifying the condition of all interior and exterior parts of my home. "
Another happy home inspection client! This one is from Ballston Lake!
"Spec-Pro is excellent!!!! Not only did they do a great job inspecting my home, the inspector even found a problematic spot on my roof that I was able to get fixed before it caused too much damage. I saved their card for the future because they were so great."
Many times a house looks great and people wonder "do I even need a home inspection?"
That is an interesting question. If everything seems to work and there are no apparent issues, then why get a home inspection? Well, it comes down to 2 things: knowledge, and peace of mind.
A home inspection does one (or both) of those two things. First, if there are issues that you, contractors, or handy family members don't notice, you will now have knowledge. Does that happen though? I will tell you from the experience we have seen on thousands of inspections - %100 yes, all the time, almost every day.
If anything though, if you don't find out anything new from the home inspection that you didn't already know, then you at least have peace of mind.
Here is a thank you note that we received from a home inspection client up past Wilton NY who had this same dilemma:
"Thank you for the home inspection. It was an eye opener. At first I did not think I needed one but once we walked through the house I was VERY glad you came an gave me the bare bones of the house so I could see all the what parts needs to be kept up on what parts need attention now and things not to worry about. thank you ."
