Chris was recommended to me by my real estate broker. He was punctual, organized and thoughtful throughout my inspection and a wonderfully detailed report arrived exactly as promised the next day. Chris was clear with me about what he was looking for or testing (and how he was testing) and made sure I understood not only the state of the house but how to best keep it up in the future.

This is my second time using Mr. Long for home inspection. I find him to be very thorough in his work He is also very easy to talk to and friendly. But the main reason I called Mr. Long a second time is what I call his free FYI on early preventive care on thing in the home we should address that most home owners see as nothing for example mold fungi and moist area. Thank you chis.
- V.M., Bronx NY, July 2016
Chris is the definition of a professional while throwing in a little humor to make the process less nerve racking. He went above and beyond his actual duties to make sure that we were getting a sound home.

There is nobody else I would entrust with my future needs whether it comes to buying another home or just maintenance on the one we are in the process of purchasing.

- A.J., Croton-on-Hudson NY, June 2016
Chris was recommended by a family member and he didn't disappoint. Chris answered every question as well as pointing all minor and potential issues.

Chris was fantastic and incredibly thorough. We had a more complex outdoor area than many houses and he climbed and crawled to wherever it was he had to inspect in order to ensure that we received a comprehensive report. We had not been aware of a number of issues on our potential new home, but Chris made sure we were well informed in order for us to make our best decision. He stopped sporadically throughout the inspection to review things with me, which was incredibly helpful. I would recommend Chris to anyone that needs an inspection done!

Chris was the ultimate professor, guardian of safety, understanding and easy to speak with Inspector. His reports are easy to follow.

I felt he truly cared about the property and my well being. I would recommend him to my friends and family. I was very impressed and appreciative.

- S.N., October 2014
Chris was great to work with. He was there on time and his process was streamlined, efficient, and very thorough. He uses his tablet to (voice) record his notes and take pictures so that nothing is lost in transcription when he produces his report ... which was ready the next day. He took me through the whole house and explained everything along the way, including what needs to be done for future maintenance or possible future concerns. Knowing we have one small child and one on the way, he geared many commented towards the safety of the children.

I feel confident knowing that Chris inspected our future home and happy to know him as a lovely person.
- M.S., Forest Hills NY, June 2014
This was our first home purchase. Chris walked us through every inch of the house explaining what everything was and made recommendations for little things we could do to protect the integrity of the home going forward., He also provided a seasonal checklist to follow so we knew how to keep our new home in it's best condition. On top of that, he was an absolute pleasure to deal with and made us feel like we were part of his family the way he was looking out for us. I wouldn't waste your time looking for anyone else. This is the guy you want.
