Cannot say enough positive things about shield guard home inspections and their team.

First, we booked online (www.shieldguardinspections.com in a fairly smooth process. Priced checked them and their prices are within range given the value and service.

We did wait a week for an available appointment and thank god we did. We’ve had 2 previous inspections before on investment properties and they fell short to say the least. Ken and jordan came out to perform a home inspection with septic system evaluation along with a level 2 chimney inspection. Ken was very clear and precise with his answer to our questions. Not surprising as he is a general contractor so he was able to answer those difficult questions. Ken found structural issues on the inspection. After the inspection i spoke with Ken and Adam (the owner) who both offered me their professional opinion on the foundation.

It was a great convo as we still ended up getting the property due to the honest and low cost method of correction for the foundation. Other inspectors always advised us that the foundations need to be replaced if they contain a bow. Not this time, Ken and Adam described a method that was 30% of the cost and still provided the peace of mind that we needed.

Reports were clear, not fluffed with a bunch of meaningless narrative and straight to the point.

The only issue we had was the radon runner was late to pickup the radon from shield guard home inspections. Which delayed the radon ONE day. No biggie. Ken and Adam to this day assist me with questions i have regarding residential and commercial home inspection within and around saratoga and albany ny.

Additionally we have hired shield guard home inspections to perform indoor air quality testing, well shocking and even assisted us on a Refinance construction loan that required a hud consultant which Adam the owner is- I wasn’t aware at the time of our home inspection though.

We cannot say enough positive things about shield guard and their team. There’s a reason why they have so many positive reviews across the web. Don’t make the same mistake we did 2x and call these guys.

As local investor in the Albany County area I have hired Shield Guard Home Inspections on multiple times to inspect my investment properties. He has saved me a bunch of $ on defects that I was not aware of. Adam found 2 serious foundation problems that were hidden/parged over. Additionally Adam has helped me with the permitting process and answered all my questions regarding permitted work. He really goes above and beyond even during the busy season (summer) he was able to assist me. I've hired multiple Home inspectors within the Albany Area for the past 10 years and I can say he is the best. His prices are right in the middle. His reports come with pictures and he is able to go over the report via a phone call after. The detailed report helps me out enormously due to me not being present. The travel from the down state area to Albany NY is a nice hike but I feel comfortable leaving the home inspection process in his hands. Adam is also very familiar with the upstate/Albany area. Id recommend this company to everyone especially investors as there is more involved then just a home inspection when you plan on building additions and extra bedrooms. Adam is always able to point me in the right direction regarding code and regulations. Very knowledgeable and he enjoys what he does. GREAT COMPANY!
