The Standard Home Inspection is provided for a home that has a maximum size of 2000 square feet, a maximun age of 100 years and a maximum distance of 40 miles from the Mid-Hudson Bridge.

Other than a detached garage, additional buildings or apartments in the same building with separate living quarters are charged as an additional Home Inspection.
Water tests are only offered as an added service to a home inspection and may not be ordered as a stand-alone service.

Some municipalities require that the Water Test Laboratory take the samples for the Dutchess County Testwell Series. This is an reasonable guideline and I recommend the same approach for all locations.

Inspection Consulting Services

$85.00
Hourly Rate for Inspection Consulting regarding Building Systems or Components
Do you need help understanding a home component or system. Perhaps some element of the home needs to be repaired or replaced, but you don't want or need a complete home inspection. Wouldn't it be helpful to be informed prior to speaking with a contractor.

I can help you with that. Also, it is helpful to be able to compare apples to apples, in the process of comparing estimates. ​Starting the process knowing what home component repair or replacement is needed helps to streamline the process.

When you bring your car to a mechanic for a repair, it is good to know that your mechanic has you covered. That they will take care of you, not overcharge you and fix what is broken.

It is the same way with your home. If you have a contractor that you can trust and has you covered, that's is great! If you want assistance in this area, I can help you identify and clarify the home repair

​For example, maybe your home needs a new roof. The process of having roofers visit your home to discuss a new roof would include the roofer's desire to sell you a roof. That is the natural process, the roofer makes money by roofing homes. But perhaps you would like a knowledgeable and independent person to consult with you regarding the new roof. ​​
In this case, I would perform a roof inspection. This would include inspecting the roofing, flashing, gutters and leaders, adjacent wall surfaces, roof penetrations such as plumbing vents, attic vents, skylites and chimneys. The recommendations regarding a new roof installation would include each of these items. I would provide a report to you regarding the home components and systems related to the home repair.
​In summary, there may be times that a consultation regarding a home repair could be beneficial in the long run. It may be worthwhile having me take a look for you. Call me if you would like to discuss this approach to a home repair.
