JPG HOME EVALUATION SERVICES - Serving New York’s Hudson Valley since 1999.
Offering a full line of inspection services - before, during and after your purchase.

Full Pre-Sale Home Inspections

We cover all visible systems - Exterior (focusing on water/moisture issues), Roofing, Siding/Trim, Windows and Doors, Interior Structure and wood destroying insect inspection (basement, crawlspaces, and attic), Heating System(s), Plumbing, Electrical (heavy focus especially on older homes), child safety concerns, and all interior rooms. If there are handicapped members of the family, I have studied Universal Design (handicapped accessibility) and will include that in any inspection. Energy Conservation issues (not a full energy audit) are a major part of the inspection and are always included.

HUD, FHA & 203K Rehabilitation

Each of these are special loans through the Federal Housing Authority (FHA) and HUD (Housing and Urban Development) that require a slightly different inspection than the standard home inspection.

 The 203k program allows the home buyer to add construction costs into the mortgage loan. We provide loan work write ups and consultation services.

I am certified with the FHA and HUD as a home inspector and full consultant. If you are applying for an FHA loan it is important to hire an inspector that is on the FHA list.

Energy Audits

These are generally done after the home is purchased, as the testing and reports can double the time of the inspection. There are also some aspects that would be considered destructive (heating system combustion analysis, checking insulation levels in the walls, etc.) so they are not allowed before the home is purchased.

Thermal imaging (heat sensitive photography) and blower door testing can be used to locate problem areas. A report is generated outlining the cost effectiveness of the recommended repairs.

New Construction Inspections

New Construction inspections can be scheduled throughout the different stages of the project or at the very end. A punch list can be drawn up along with a follow-up inspection to make sure that all work is completed to your satisfaction.

Enviromental Inspections And Testing

These tests include measuring radon in the air, mold and allergen sampling, lead paint testing, asbestos sampling (when recommended), and water tests (bacteria, lead. full FHA water scans).
