Check Mark was great! Sven, our inspector was EXTREMELY thorough, very personable, and incredibly informative. I would highly recommend using their services!
I rarely write reviews, but felt compelled to write one for Check Mark Services because of the incredible experience I had working with the company. I had a home inspection on a 90 year old home in Westchester county. As a first time home buyer I was very nervous. Working with Jeff allowed me to make decisions with confidence. He was incredibly knowledgeable, professional and thorough. He was flexible and accomodating in scheduling and extremely prompt. He completed a very in-depth inspection and provided a well-written, detailed report with ample photographs and clear captions within 48 hours. He was patient in answering my many questions and explaining home maintenance recommendations. He provided multiple solutions to issues with the property and gave estimated costs for proposed work. During the home-buying process, which was confusing and often misleading, working with Jeff was an absolute breath of fresh air. I would recommend Jeff, and Check Mark Services, to all of my friends and family members fully and without reservation.
Jeff Molloy of Check Mark was superb. He was exceptionally detailed during his 4 hour inpection and provided extensive tips on maintanence and the relative importance of issues that we came accross during his inspection of a 6000 sq ft property with pool and cabana. I have been involved in 5 property purchases over the last 18 years and Jeff is by far the best property inspector among the ones I've used.

Check Mark helped me with a problem I was having trying to get a C.of O. for my home. I had a number of major and minor problems that the Bank wanted Inspected. The inspector from Check Mark provided me with a very nice photo report that helped me with my contractor and with the Banks Attorney who was being unreasonable as to what should be done. A concise letter from Check Mark along with the Building Inspectors notes made the bank back down and release my escrow funds. Thank you for a great job and your ongoin support! I Highly recommended them!

I am very happy with the home inspection performed by Check Mark Services, for three reasons: Jeff's knowledge, his experience, and his "user friendliness".
Jeff was very knowledgeable on the mechanical, electrical, and other systems of the home. He pointed out many problems that I will need to address when I become a homeowner.
Second, his experience led him to look for the "big issues." While he reported on every last issue - big or small - his focus was on the more important high-cost items that should be negotiated with a seller.
Third and most important, Jeff's user-friendliness really made this inspection go well. Jeff went out of his way to schedule the inspection on a busy Sunday morning on very short notice. Also, he was very patient and asked all of my newbie-homeowner questions in detail. Third, his report was very detailed, with full color photos with arrows showing problems, and included pictures of what an ideally corrected version of the problem should look like. This was all very helpful.
If you're considering buying a home I strongly recommend using Check Mark to conduct your home inspection.
Breath of Fresh Air
Breath of fresh air Jeff Malloy is. I was very nervous to use him because I just found him on the net and called him based on reviews, he wasn't recommended by a friend who had experience with him. From the moment I called, I got good vibes. He was personable and sounded like he knew what he was talking about. We are first time buyers and this is the second home we've had inspected. We had used Heimer [Engineering] prior and while we didn't hate them, we didn't feel like they were thorough and I didn't want to use them again. Mr.Malloy walked us through everything and explained what he was doing. He took pictures and provided us with our report within 24hrs. The report was clear and concise, no technical terms that we can't understand like what Heimer [Engineering] did in their almost 100 page report. A wonderful man who knows what he is doing, engages his customers, takes his time to explain everything. Highly recommended.

We recently used Jeff Molloy for a home inspection and had a very positive experience. He was prompt, thorough and personable, and he answered all of our questions along the way. We also had a number of questions after the fact, and he got back to us in a timely fashion. We would definitely use him again!

We were extremely pleased with the home inspection that Jeff Molloy of Check Mark Services performed on our first home in Rye Brook, NY. Jeff was informative, thorough and friendly. He took the time to explain both major and minor issues, as well as advise us
of preventative measures we could take to ensure the well being of our new home. His report helped us to negotiate several thousand dollars reduction in our purchase price. We would not hesitate to recommend Check Mark Service for anyones home inspection needs.

We were so pleased to find Jeff as he is straight talking individual who evidently is great at his job and enjoys it. Our Realtor was so impressed with him she is going to recommend him to all of her clients.
Jeff actually performed 2 inspections for us and on the basis of his report we did not proceed with the purchase of the first property as he identified so many issues the place was screaming 'money pit'. We are first time home buyers and were emotionally attached to what we thought was our first property but Jeff presented the information and took the time to explain all aspects so we could make an informed decision.
I am pleased to say the second inspection was just as thorough and did not show as many issues. I would highly recommend Jeff and that you spend the time to shadow him on the inspection as you will learn a huge amount about your potential new home and building regulations in general.

About 6 months ago we had Check Mark come out and give us an air quality review. It was pretty straight forward...the inspector looked for obvious mold sources, water leaks etc. He also checked our A/C and heating equipment for proper operation and general condition. Most items were in good shape, but the Inspector explained the the use of inexpensive filters in our air handling was not doing us any favors. I was a bit skeptical at first but am now happy the we decided to try the the high quality filters that Check Mark recommended. They were custom measured and fitted at no charge to us and my wife claims she has noticed the difference in house dust and animal hair (we have two large dogs so that used to be a problem). Maybe I'm imagining it but I seem to be sneezing/coughing less too. With a total cost of less the $250.00 for BOTH of our A/C systems combined I'm convinced it was worth it. - Thanks for your honest "try the simple thing first" approach. Steve W.

Check Mark did an awesome job inspecting the house we are purchasing in Scarsdale.
We wanted to move very quickly on getting it done and he was able to come out within 24 hours of our call.
He eased our fears on some of the things we thought were major problems, pointed out other things we hadn't noticed and really knew his stuff. The entire inspection took about four hours and was very thorough. Jeff's fee was reasonable and his 35-page report was incredibly detailed with tons of photos. I would definitely hire him again and recommend him to others.
"I was very impressed by how thorough Jeff was with inspecting a prospective home for me. He took the time to explain things and advise me to watch out on things that weren't included in the inspection (pool, shed, underground oil tank, etc.). He was also very personable, pleasant and trustworthy. Taking the time to walk through the agreement between myself and Check Mark Services was also impressive. I would definitely hire him again!"

Customers Are Talking!
"Check Mark Services" provided me with a very thorough home inspection . The owner, Jeff Molloy, took his time, was very thorough, and answered all of my questions during the course of the inspection. This was followed up by a very detailed written report. The report covered all aspects of the inspection, pointing out the pluses and the minuses in the design, quality of construction and problem areas ( current and potential ). I HIGHLY RECOMMEND Check Mark Services.
Jeff performed a very thorough inspection, even walking on the roof! As a first time home buyer, the whole process seems overwhelming and there's a lot to learn in quick notice. He took the time to explain several items to me as he was performing the inspection. The report was very well detailed and he took dozens of pictures. I'd definitely use him again.

I liked the inspector very much. He is thorough, open, and honest. I am impressed with his techniques. He uses infrared camera, moisture meters, and other technical devices to check thermo and hydro insulation.
I highly recommend CheckMark Services.
