Home Inspector Review - Delmar NY
"Ian was very knowledgeable and conscientious in providing me with all the information as we went through the inspection. He was happy to thoroughly answer all my questions. He provided a detailed report - ~40 pages with lots of photos. It was a great relief to have the information and I would recommend him without reservation. "

"Ian has been my go to for home inspection for years. His knowledge of the field is outstanding and he takes the time to thoroughly walk you through the house and answer any questions.
If you are like me and like to keep copies of everything, he provides a beautifully formatted pdf with pictures and explanations as part of his
final report. I enjoyed learning about some of the history of my home and he also had some excellent recommendations for what to tackle in terms of repairs and provided a general idea of the cost so that when I had people come out for estimates of work that I would not get ripped off.
He was very responsive to questions, emails, and phone calls.
I could not speak higher of his work or his attitude."
Recently I did a home inspection for a very nice client and her two children in East Greenbush NY. I wanted to make sure they had a good, solid house that would last them. The first one did not work out well for them, but the second one did. Below is a review they left us on Angie's List. I like how she made note that I let the water run for most of the home inspection. This is something I make sure is done whenever I can to make sure there aren't any leaks.
Home Inspection Review - East Greenbush NY
"He arrived much earlier and had been on the roof and done a thou rough walk around the property prior to my arrival and then walked through all findings with myself and my agent. Had all waters running from time of arrival to exit, checking for leaks and all surrounding walls for moisture .Checked foundations, heating and cooling, electricity , attic for mold and moisture and leaks. Checked everything! He took detailed pictures of all findings big or small and wrote them up executively while explaining them to myself and 15 year old son in laymans terms. Very knowledgeable and helpful and report was emailed with pictures included same evening! Radon test resulted by email as well.
Description of work:Home inspection. I had used Ian for an additional home inspection on a house I did not purchase and again on this one which I am. Besides the routine super punctual thorough detailed inspection, he just goes above and beyond explaining in detail all the little things and the big things and is such a pleasure to work with. He takes the scary and formidable house buying experience and just really makes you feel comfortable about your biggest investment ever.I highly recommend."
I recently performed a home inspection in Colonie NY for a wonderful young family. I was happy that we caught some issues on their home inspection. I worked hard to answer all of their questions and to give them the best information possible (as always). Apparently they appreciated it by giving me the review below on Angie's List :)
Home Inspection Review - Colonie NY
"Spec Pro was extremely thorough and engaging during the inspection. Ian explained to us exactly what he was doing throughout the inspection and was very candid about issues that were concerning and about those that were of little or no concern. For example, we were worried about some stains in the shower and Ian reassured us that the issue was likely a cleanliness fix, not an underlying issue. He climbed into the attic and inspected so thoroughly that he identified potential mold-like substances under the insulation. The report was promptly provided the same day and included detailed descriptions and pictures of the home. When we had follow up questions to clarify elements of the report, Ian was responsive and helpful."

Recently I performed a home inspection in Schenectady (near the Rotterdam area) and I client left me a very nice little statement that made my day (see below).
I love working for clients like this. They seemed to have done their research ahead of time, were ready for the inspection, asked questions, and worked with me throughout the morning.
I love when my clients are that thorough and prepared. I always encourage all of my clients to be on the home inspection with me. I want you to see what I see and understand how your home works and the little "ins-and-outs" of your house.
See what our clients had to say below:
"Thanks again Ian for your work, you were knowledgeable and made it fun. Will certainly recommend you going forward. "
