Welcome to Vail's Home Inspections
Where experience matters most !
My name is Gary G. Vail and I am a Certified N.Y.S licensed Home inspector.
Lic. # 16000068003
I bring over 30 years experience in residential construction to my home inspections. I've had experience renovating / restoring 200 year old historic homes up to present day, including modular and custom building.
With a Vail's Home Inspection, you will get the best structural inspection available and I will educate you on the components of your new home and answer any questions you may have.
I am a resident of Saratoga Springs serving Saratoga, Kingston, Saugerties, the Capital District, Troy, Schenectady, Clifton Park, Glens Falls, and more!
Before you purchase your new home, whether it is an existing home or new construction, you need an independent, trustworthy inspector to search for safety issues. Selling your house? A Pre-listing inspection will allow you to address any issues beforehand on your time, on your dime.
Full Structural Inspection
A non- invasive, visual examination inspection of a residential dwelling, including garages and out buildings to observe defects within specific components of the house.
A full structural inspection will also cover mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems.
Water quality testing
We offer many options for the testing of well water. Starting with basic testing of total coliform bacteria, fecal/E, & coli bacteria to complete health scans that for over 197 contaminating elements.
Water flow & yield of well water
We will use sophisticated professional equipment to test water flow.
We will test the home for the presence of Radon gas.
If a roof is too steep or deemed unsafe to walk I will use a Drone to inspect the roof. As a courtesy to my clients I will take an aerial picture of the property and surrounding neighbor hood.
If weather prohibits a drone flight during the inspection I will reschedule ASAP
We are a certified N.Y.S licensed Mold Assessment company. If there is any question of mold during our inspection we can expedite any remediation if necessary. There will be no delay in waiting for a third party for assessment.
We were very impressed with the home inspection that Gary performed for us. He was knowledgeable, professional and insightful. Gary patiently answered our questions during the inspection and any additional that we thought of, after reading his detailed post-inspection report. We highly recommend his service!

Gary did a great job inspecting our most recent home. This is the fourth house i have purchased and it was a bit of a fixer upper. Gary is meticulous in his work and his breadth of knowledge in construction enabled us to identify all the areas we were going to have to work on. His reports were detailed, with accurate pictures, and he got them back to us within days. I could not have been more pleased with his professionalism and attention to detail. I will certainly use him for any future purchases.

Gary was very thorough when completing our inspections. The home buying process can be a stressful one but having Gary as part of the team helped the process run smoothly. We would highly recommend his services.
