Five Reasons to Choose
a Professional Engineer

New York Professional Engineer pre-purchase home inspections, building inspections, condo inspections, and co-op inspectionsAre you using a non-Engineer to perform the pre-purchase inspection on the real estate that you may purchase?  Consider the following:

  1. Under New York law, only a Professional Engineer can assess structural integrity, sufficiency of electrical service or heating, etc.  An Inspector who is not an Engineer cannot advise you about structural soundness.
  2. Becoming a Professional Engineer requires a minimum of four years of Engineering College and four years of relevant experience with Building Codes, Engineering Standards, passing two Engineering exams, etc.  A New York Licensed Home Inspector only needs to take only a 140 hour class, which is the equivalent of one month of training.
  3. If there are structural issues, you need a Professional Engineer to assess them.  If a non-Engineer does not recognize a structural issue, how will you know to call in an Engineer?
  4. State of New York Professional Engineer IDA Professional Engineer is required to take continuing education to keep up-to-date.  With many thousands of approved online courses, the Engineer can choose Engineering topics that improve inspection skills.
  5. The Professional Engineer's training and experience help him detect deficiencies that a non-Engineer would miss.  Engineers are, by training and experience, problem solvers.  An Engineer can analyze areas of concern and provide you with reliable recommendations.

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

Home inspectors are not permitted to provide engineering or architectural services.

THINK about the above restriction and why it is required when choosing who should inspect the home, building, condo, or co-op you are considering purchasing.

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.
