WHY CHOOSE David Andrick @A-1 HOME INSPECTION?
PLEASE READ ON......
"I was referred to David by a "buyers agent" who was representing us in our search for a country home. As the agent put it "he's the only one I would use to inspect my house!" He was right. Dave was very thorough, he sat down to explain all aspects of his inspection and even contacted me weeks later to see how everything turned out. Most importantly, he is independent ---. Dave works for you and I highly recommend him. A. Tessier NYC customer (Columbia county purchase) Call A1: 845-518-6494 now!
My personal guarantee....you will receive over TWICE (double/200%/two times) the valuable information about any given home when you have A1 conduct your inspection vs.any other inspection company...without paying double. PERIOD! Others may talk the talk...and maybe give you a paragraph on say the roof, plumbing, heating, electrical areas... I provide you with a PAGE of valuable info!! Get what you pay for!! Why settle for less?? Cheap price, cheap inspection, minimal info! Don't you want the BEST inspection possible for your hard earned dollars? I may charge more in some cases...but YOU WILL ALWAYS GET MORE INTEL WITH DAVID @ A1 GUARANTEED.
MYTH BUSTER: The purpose of a home inspection is not whether the house will "PASS OR FAIL," It's how much new intel will be provided to better inform you.
INDEPENDENT MOLD TEST SAMPLING CONDUCTED..... Don't Let mold get out of hand especially with the recent floods. Prof. cleanups can cost thou$and$ of dollar$.
I have even seen where just the quotes are thousands of dollars apart! I look for possible mold issues...but without the hysteria or emotional pitch. Don't assume it's mold, confirm it with an inspection and lab testing.
FLASH 1: NATIONAL RADON AWARENESS MONTH (JAN.) - Reg. stand alone testing is $150 ,$99 JAN, FEB, MAR --- special Limitations apply.
FLASH 2: "W.H.O." recommends new lower radon action level thresholds to 1/3 of previous action levels to lower lung cancer risk of homeowners (9/22/09 Minn. Post & WHO site). Note: U.S. EPA has not yet adopted this new lower standard.
FLASH #3 : New Carbon Monoxide (CO) "Amanda's Law" - NY State law requires all 1-2 family property, apartments, condos, cooperative apartments, multiple dwellings that have appliances,devices or systems that may emit CO and/or has an attached garage must have a working CO detector. This is in addition to the previous "listed only for sale" provision.
FLASH #4: NYS adopts NEC 2008 electric codes (residential 1 & 2 family) Dec. 28, 2010. Is your electrician up to date on the new codes?
Flash #5... I have received several calls from (New York City) property owners experiencing Carbon monoxide levels which tripped their detectors, Fire dept. was called, limited findings, then the owners called me and I was able in all cases to uncover the source(s). Unlike radon, CO takes but a few minutes to cause harm OR death!... Call A1 to be sure!
Flash #6.... EPA lead paint rules 2010...unless you are a DIY homeowner, your contractor needs to be EPA/RRP certified to work on pre 1978 homes with greater than 10 sq. ft of disturbed surface. That means at least one person on the job needs to have completed a qualified EPA approved RRP course on lead paint...period. EPA has put the "burden" on the contractor level to have completed and keep up on lead paint removal, abatement etc... David @ A1 can inspect and test before and after your planned renovations.... call us first...and last!
Short sales, foreclosures, auction properties, first time home buyers ... you "really" need to hire "The Sherlock of Homes!" What may seem like a really good deal at the forefront could end up becoming a really deep money pit! CALL 845-518-6494 NOW!
Contemplating choosing the "over 15-30 years renovating/builder construction-experience turned-inspector" professional?
Please think twice.... how many houses have they "INSPECTED" let alone built over that time period? They sub most of their work out and rely on the local municipal "inspector" to "check"their work. Are you in need of a builder/renovator/contractor, OR an INSPECTOR?
So I would ask you to ponder again, are they a experienced home builder or an experienced inspector? Building and inspecting are two different endpoints...and ironically, most builders (and many realtors) don't think ANY new construction needs to be independently inspected. I cannot remember the last time I was warmly greeted by a new construction builder on an inspection site. So, now after an epiphany... many " contractors " are becoming inspectors all of a sudden (and conveniently still do contracting work!) Hmm, do you smell conflict of interest here? Rethink my friends...or as my young daughter would say....oh,good grief!! Call 845-518-6494 NOW!

Don't get stuck with a blind inspector, someone in training, or just any inspector from a group... nor should you automatically choose a prior builder or tradesperson. Most home builders might have built (completed) say 60 homes in 20 years time.... A-1 has professionally "INSPECTED" over 2,500 homes and counting!! Ask yourself, do you want to hire a "veteran licensed inspector" OR a "tradesperson" ? Call A1: 845-518-6494 now!
Pleaaase, if you are looking for a cheap, quick/FAST home inspector ( words which should never be considered in ANY home inspection) YOU WILL NOT GET A THOROGH INSPECTION...just a CHEAP one! Please don't email or call me for a quote!! Why not try the yellow pages (do they still exist?) or a family "contractor friend" WITHOUT home inspection experience! They may save (spend) your money in the short term..but could cost you thousand$ in the long term! Better yet, call me (845) 518-6494 and I will refer you to the cheapo priced inspectors you may not even know about ...advertising themselves as such! I guarantee you a thorough inspection AND a report with 200-300% more meaningful/useful information. Do I charge 200% more than other lower minimum standard reporting inspectors....no.
