About Our Firm
Professional Building Inspectors, Inc. is open seven days a week and we proudly serve all of Long Island, New York City, Staten Island, the Bronx, Brooklyn, Queens, Westchester, Rockland County and parts of Connecticut.
Professional Building Inspectors, Inc. (PBI) was formed in 1972 on Long Island to meet the demands of many purchasers and law firms in the construction and real estate fields. The initial goal of the company was to provide clients with sufficient information before they entered into a major real estate transaction. Since then we have expanded our services to include thermal imaging analysis, water intrusion testing, defect recognition, problem solving and environmental testing such as mold, asbestos, lead, allergen, and particulate testing in all parts of New York.
We employ only the top New York State licensed inspectors for all property inspections and PBI conforms to New York State Code of Ethics and Standards of Practice. Our inspectors were awarded the designation of Certified Real Estate Inspector (CRI) which is the National Association of Home Inspector's highest degree of competency and proficiency. In addition, our inspectors are licensed home inspector instructors.
In addition to commercial inspections and home inspections, PBI is a full service independent, third-party testing company based on Long Island. Some of our services include mold testing, asbestos testing, lead paint testing, particulate testing, cause and origin determination, areas of contamination surveys and if requested, environmental impact and remediation plans.
All environmental assessments and New York & Connecticut mold testing are conducted in accordance with the guidelines established by the American Congress of Government Industrial Hygienists, the Indoor Air Quality Association, Federal EPA guidelines and the New York City Department of Health, Division of Epidemiology. All laboratory testing is performed in independent, third party, federally accredited EMLAP laboratories.
Our company offers thermal imaging inspections by Council- certified Environmental Thermography Consultants and one of the owner/inspectors of PBI sits on national boards for thermography and also structural drying.
PBI's New York lead inspections and asbestos inspections are conducted by New York State/EPA licensed professionals, and New York EIFS inspections are by AWCI certified inspectors. The staff at PBI maintains their leadership position in these areas through their field experience and industry-sponsored continuing education and recertification.
