  • ISO Home Inspector

    I highly recommend Matt Barnett, he spent four hours looking over our future home, stood up to a very pushy seller’s agent who tried to rush us, and identified a number of problems that we took into account in further price negotiations.
  • Looking for a very thorough Home Inspector

    Larry Ubell at Accurate Building Inspectors is very thorough, direct and has been in the business for years. His well of knowledge runs deep. He’s been on the Leonard Lopate show during a “How-to” segment http://www.accuratebuilding.com/about_us/events/radio.html
  • Looking for a very thorough Home Inspector

    Highly recommend Matt Barnett from Accurate Home inspectors. So incredibly thorough. He’s definitely not the cheapest but worth every penny.
  • capital reserve fund coop advice

    I’m the board president of a 14-unit self managed co-op. We sort of went through this when we refinanced our underlying mortgage last year. We are still figuring out the sweet spot for our reserve, but in terms of a review of the building’s systems and “forecasting” future repairs, we worked with Matt Barnett at Accurate Building Inspectors. He came recommended by our co-op lawyer. We did the walkthrough with him and he was super detailed and helped us prioritize projects. He’s also been on the board of his own co-op so he gets it. I think the inspection cost us around $1k.
  • Re: ISO: Home Inspection Recommendations

    I highly recommend Matthew from Accurate Building Inspectors. His number is 718.265.8191. He's really there for the buyer and is incredibly thorough. We used him twice.

    Matthew Barnet inspected our brownstone last year before we bought it. He came highly recommended by a friend who had used him 3 times. He was thorough and patiently answered my many questions. March 2012
  • Looking for a building engineer

    Accurate Building Inspectors http://www.accuratebuilding.com/ Thorough, honest, smart. Plus, they are the "Gurus of Home Repair" on the Leonard Lopate show on WNYC (Feb 2012)

    I second this recommendation, although we've used Larry Ubell from the same company. He is fantastic, thorough, takes plenty of time to translate everything for the ignorant, very prompt and quick to get you your inspection report. I know there are periodically requests for recommendations for building inspectors on this list and have wanted to chime in our feelings about Accurate Building Inspectors.

    A year and a half ago I posted a glowing reference for my home inspector, Matt Barnett of Accurate Building Inspectors. I have a followup to that-- and it's even more glowing. Matt did a great inspection job for me in mid-2010. Recently I called him back because I wanted his opinion on potential damage to my house from a gut-renovation being done next door. I saw no damage, but was concerned because the pounding on the common wall had been shaking loose mortar from my exposed brick wall. I wanted to know if he'd come take a look on a per-hour basis. He told me he'd be happy to take a look, no charge involved. Matt came by (on the afternoon of New Year's Eve!) and spent 90 minutes with me. Not only did he look at the wall but he examined the whole house, including the roof. He found no damage, but gave me advice on how to deal with the situation, and spent much of the time answering general questions about how to handle maintenance problems in the house. Matt refused my repeated offer to compensate him for his time. He gave me his time and advice-- 90 minutes of it-- for free. He's a great inspector and a great guy, and all of Park Slope should know it.

    ditto for matt and accurate building inspectors. he inspected the house in kensington that we bought 8 years ago and was absolutely right about everything. we've slowly addressed the various imperfections but the inspection was so thorough that we've had no surprises. also, i love when his bosses - al and larry --go on the leonard lopate show on wnyc. (the gurus of "how to") so freakin funny.

    I had a home I am thinking of buying inspecting recently by Matt Barnett of Accurate Building Inspectors.He did such a refreshingly great job and fielded followup questions so cheerfully and thoroughly that I want to post something detailed to the list as well. I've been through dozens of professionals in my time (lawyers, doctors, home inspectors, plumbers, contractors, exorcists... OK, well no exorcists yet, but that's only a matter of time), and it's almost always a mixed experience at best. Matt was a different story. Let me begin by saying how thorough Matt was, within the acknowledged limits of a 2.5 hour inspection. The resulting report was much more detailed than the boilerplate-heavy reports I got the last 2 times I had homes inspected. I accompanied Matt through the house and he took time to explain to me what he saw, how to fix it if necessary, how much it would probably cost, and the best way to solicit bids and even tips on how to monitor the work. When I called with detailed questions two weeks later, he recalled the house well and spent time with me addressing issues raised in the report he wrote. Most important of all, this gave me-- who can't hammer a nail-- vital perspective in understanding what matters were urgent and what matters could likely be ignored. He told me that he tells all his customers that they can call him anytime with followup questions "till he's under a stone". I give Matt Barnet and Accurate Building Inspectors my highest recommendation. --- Update, Jan, 2012 Update, Jan 2012: 18 months after Matt did my inspection, I called him back because I wanted his opinion on potential damage to my house from a gut-renovation being done next door. Matt told me he'd be happy to take a look, no charge involved. Not only did he look at the wall but he examined the whole house, including the roof. He found no damage, but gave me advice on how to deal with the situation, and spent much of the time answering general questions about how to handle maintenance problems in the house.
