How Will You Know
the Home Inspector is a
Professional Engineer?

State of New York Professional Engineer IDUnfortunately, many home inspection companies send out non-Engineer inspectors when the buyer expects a Licensed Engineer.  At the site, the non-Engineer inspector may promise a review by a Licensed Engineer in the office.

When you retain a Licensed Engineer to perform a home, building, condo, or co-op inspection, you expect that a Licensed Engineer will visit the site.  It is unethical for a home inspection company to send a non-Engineer when you expect and are paying for the services of a Licensed Engineer.

Section §197-4.2 of the New York State home inspector law requires non-Engineer home inspectors to have the following wording in the pre-inspection agreement:

Home inspectors are not permitted to provide engineering or architectural services

If you enter the term home inspector in a search engine, most of the websites returned will be non-Engineers.  This is why it is important to see the New York State Professional Engineer Photo ID before the inspection.

Regardless of what Engineering firm you choose, verify that a Licensed Engineer is performing the inspection.  In New York State, a Professional Engineer can obtain a state-issued photo identification card.  When the inspector arrives on site, ask to see the New York State Professional Engineer photo ID.  A non-Engineer cannot lawfully obtain a New York State Professional Engineer's photo ID.


Who is Entering the
House or Building?

Question marks In these days when everyone is cautious, you do not want just anybody in your home or building.  Most people have valuables around that they do not want to put at risk.  Anyone entering a home, building, condo, or co-op to perform an inspection should provide a state-issued photo ID.

Before the inspector enters the home or building, you should identify the person by asking to see the Professional Engineer photo ID issued by the State of New York.

Before the inspection,
ask to see the New York State
Professional Engineer photo ID.

Make sure that you know who is entering the house or building, and verify the person is a Professional Engineer.  Ask to see a New York State Professional Engineer photo ID.

Heimer Engineering respects your privacy.  Some inspection firms share information with insurance, landscaping, snow removal, home maintenance, moving, cable, mortgage, and other companies.  Some inspection firms sell email lists of their clients.  These practices are unethical.  You will not receive phone calls or solicitation emails from third parties as a result of providing personal information.

In the event of a life-threatening emergency (fire, building in danger of collapse, facade with loose bricks, debris falling from a building, gas leak, carbon monoxide detector that is alerting to a hazard, etc.) do not call Heimer Engineering.  If there is a life-threatening emergency or other hazardous condition, call 911.  Emergency situations need to be handled immediately by first-responders who can evacuate buildings, contact appropriate utility companies to have the utilities shut off, and take other steps necessary to preserve life.
