Five Reasons to Choose
a Licensed Engineer
- Under New York law, only a Licensed 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.
- You gain much, and loose nothing, by choosing a Licensed Engineer. A Professional Engineer does everything that a Home Inspector does, and more.
- Becoming a Licensed 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 Licensed Engineer is also required to take continuing education to keep up-to-date. A New York Licensed Home Inspector only needs to take only a 140-hour class, which is the equivalent of one month of training.
- A Licensed Engineer assesses the systems of a building, and how they work together. A building has a structural system, a heating system, an electrical system, a plumbing system, etc. Both the function and the interaction of these systems must be evaluated. A non-Engineer can just describe what is visible. No assessment is made of how the systems work together.
- The Licensed 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.
Remember, with Heimer Engineering, you receive a home/building inspection, Engineering inspection, and termite inspection with no extra fees.
During the inspection, the Licensed Engineer examines and analyzes (as appropriate based on the building):
- The Foundation
- The Heating System
- The Hot Water System
- The Electrical System
- The Plumbing System
- The Roofing System
- The Leaders and Gutters
- The Siding
- The Exterior Trim
- Carpenter Ant Activity
- Termite Activity
- Rotted Wood
- Basement Water
- The Air-Conditioning System
- The Interior
- The Exterior
- The Appliances
- The Windows and Doors

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.
