My wife and I hired Scott Saso of Certinspectors to conduct a thorough home inspection for a house in Saugerties, NY. While we have previously owned an apartment in a Brooklyn coop, we knew very little about what it means for a house to be well built and maintained. Not only did Scott provide us with an incredibly thorough, honest, and well-documented inspection, he also spent a lot of time and energy explaining what he was evaluating, why those things are important, and what we'll need to think about moving forward as future homeowners. My wife and I feel much more knowledgeable about/capable of thoughtful care and maintenance of our future home because of Scott. Finally, it's worth mentioning that his honest approach to the work was tremendously helpful in grounding our decision-making amidst this unsettlingly rapid seller's market. The inspection and his report enabled us to make smart decisions at our own pace.

Scott Saso is wonderful at his job. He's friendly, prompt, thorough, professional, generous and smart. He's clearly an advocate for the buyer. I learned a lot and feel like I can keep asking question. I recommend him without reservation and with enthusiasm.

Scott did an outstanding job for us. His report and comments during the inspection showed a deep professionalism and a personal commitment to help us understand the house we are buying. I am very grateful we found Scott. I recommend him without reservation.

Scott is a great inspector. He never misses a thing, which is a wonderful trait for an Inspector to have.
He is friendly and soft spoken. He relaxes my clients - especially first time home buyers who are so nervous about doing the 'wrong thing' and buying the 'wrong home'... He lets them know what works right, what might need to be replaced down the road and what to know about but not worry about.
I enjoy working with him and get rave reviews from my clients.

Scott is wonderful. He took the time to answer all my questions during the inspection, and provided excellent detail. This was my first home buying inspection experience, and there was so much I didn't know, and Scott was patient and so informative. He's report is very detailed and I find myself returning to it often now that I've moved into my new home.

Scott was methodical, responsive, informative and friendly with how he had conducted the inspection of our new home. He was patient with our questions and concerns, as well as technically knowledgeable while able to communicate in laymen's terms how a number of systems operate. I would undoubtedly recommend Scott to anyone wanting to understand the operations of their home and its best practices.
- P.L., November 2020
Scott could not have been more professional during our home inspection as a buyer. He was prompt, took the time to explain things that most inspectors omit, and could not have been more pleasant to work with. Highly recommended to anyone who needs inspections done!

I can't recommend Scott enough. I have owned coops and condos my entire life so buying a house and getting it inspected was a totally new experience. Scott offered for me to be his "assistant" as he conducted the inspection so I learned a lot about the idiosyncrasies of my new house before closing. Scott was generous with his insights and was fun to be around. Considering the inspection took a couple of hours, it's good I enjoyed his company. The written inspection report was clear and the items he identified for remediation served as the basis for my requests of the seller. He also offered his "unvarnished" view of a water issue that emerged during the inspection. His independent view was important. He also was willing to return to the property to check on the items the seller had remediated. All-in-all, I highly recommend Scott!

We are SO happy we used Scott for our home inspection. His attention to detail was unparalleled and he was extremely accommodating of our (many) questions. Scott has recently started working with a third party lab to do water testing pre and post water treatment to verify that the filtration system is working properly--this is a fantastic addition to his service. When you have well water, it's helpful to know what you're drinking! Scott is also a mold specialist--it felt good knowing that if there was mold in the home, Scott would know how to find it. He also gave great advice about preventative measures for our specific home based on the construction and type of ventilation/insulation in the home. Also, the report itself was a thing of beauty--I loved the formatting (pictures!) and thoughtful commentary he gave to each and every line item. I'd give 6 stars if I could.

We were completely happy with our home inspector Scott Saso. Buying a new home can be very daunting. This is where you will be living for a number of years, and need to have the ?best? people you can find working for you. I can say without hesitation Scott is the BEST! Watching him inspect every inch of our home left us with a wonderful re-assured feeling. He is an EXPERT in every part of the construction of our home, and his fees are very reasonable. If anyone wants to be assured that they are getting the home they are paying for then without question we recommend Scott Saso. I would also add, he is a pleasure to work with.
