Home Inspection Services in Melville, NY and Surrounding Areas!


Exterior of Gray Home in NYPaul Besmertnik has personally performed over 4,200 inspections since 1976. He is one of the few graduate Civil Engineers doing inspections on Long Island, with a Bachelor’s Degree in Civil Engineering from Cooper Union in NYC, one of the best engineering schools in the country, and has a Professional Engineers (PE) license. This allows him to discuss house structural deficiencies, something almost every other inspectors cannot do, as they are not a Professional Engineer. In fact, if you want or need a structural commentary, they will refer you to a Professional Engineer in their report, so you may pay double when you use a non-engineer.

His goal is to give buyers a comprehensive and unbiased visual property inspection to help them make confident buying decisions. Most of his inspections will take 2 to 3 hours, while most other inspectors may do it in half that time. His inspections take longer because they are more comprehensive.

The reports are concise, well written, about 20 pages. It is not computer generated with generic comments. It concludes with a Summary Page that gives you a road map of what actions you should take after you buy the house, based on over 35 years of experience
