Many ratings websites are designed for restaurants, museums, attractions, and similar things. These ratings website are not designed to compare home inspection companies or compare Professional Engineers. Using these ratings websites to choose a home inspector or Professional Engineer can cause you to choose poorly.
Many negative home inspection ratings are posted by home sellers. Some clients are disgruntled for reasons that have nothing to do with the home inspection, like the seller backed out of the deal. Some positive reviews are not from clients, but are paid advertising.
Organizations like the Better Business Bureau, which requires verification of reviewers, give Heimer Engineering℠ an A+ rating. The Better Business Bureau provides a level playing field where both the business and the client get equal input. The Better Business Bureau gives Heimer Engineering℠ an A+ rating.
Some pre-purchase home inspection companies post lists of complimentary emails, letters, and phone calls they receive. Heimer Engineering℠ receives far, far more complimentary feedback than negative feedback. We only post snippets of this positive feedback, and only if the location or reviewer cannot be identified. Your privacy is important.
Some home inspection companies post a list of the addresses they have inspected. Posting the address where an inspection has been performed reveals confidential information and violates our client's trust.
We value our client's privacy. You will never see us post the positive feedback we receive. You will never see us post a list of the addresses we inspected. We value every client's privacy.

Thank you for sending …. He explained everything and was very patient with us.
J…, Suffolk County
I was a little annoyed that … didn't talk much during the inspection. After the inspection, … went over everything. It was obvious that … was concentrating on the house.
My first deal didn't go through because the sellers backed out. I need another inspection. We loved … Please send … again.
O…, Westchester County.
Thank you for sending…. Not only did he do a great job, but he called me back on a Friday evening because I needed an answer right away.
"Our first inspector, …, said he was an Engineer. Turns out he only used a computer program written by an Engineer. Now the sellers won't accept anything the guy said. So I need to pay for an inspection by a real Engineer. Thank you Heimer for sending … on short notice to save our first home purchase."
"We hired a Home Inspector. We've lived in apartments since we were married and didn't know better. The inspector said there was a crack in the foundation. The inspector said an Engineer needed to tell me if it was a problem. My broker said to call Heimer Engineering. Heimer sent an Engineer who said it was not structural. Heimer's Engineer also told me that the electrical service was good (the inspector told me to replace it) and that the chimney only needed pointing (the inspector told me to put new bricks on the chimney). And the Engineer cost less, because he didn't test for radon and didn't charge extra for termites. Next time, I'll get an Engineer the first time. Thank you Heimer Inspections."
S…, Nassau County
The old house needed work, but it was big and cost less than other houses. The floor was sagging, so I had an inspector come who said he could tell me about the floor sagging. He didn't say a word about the sagging, so I asked him. The inspector told me to get an Engineer to check the floor sag. So I paid an Engineer from Heimer after I paid the inspector. Good thing, because Heimer Engineering showed me there were serious problems because of the way this 100-year-old house was built. I got an estimate from a contractor for $90 thousand to rebuild the porch and the second floor. No thank you, deal's off. The broker said I was smart to get an Engineer. I'll use Heimer Engineering for the next inspection!
