HAAAT is owned and operated by Richard Van Vorst out of Rensselaer New York. I have been in and around the residential and light commercial construction, inspection and consulting industry for over 35 years. Through all of those years, I have seen and done about everything there is to see and do in this industry. The biggest asset I bring to you, is my vast field experience and knowledge of the construction industry coupled with my committment to the values that have been instilled in me that I have lived throughout my life. When I do your home inspection, I will take the time to not only do a thourough inspection, but invite you to participate in the inspection with me so you can learn as much as possible about your potential new home. We will talk about the things I am looking at and explain what they are and how they work. You will have every opportunity to ask the questions that may not have the obvious answers to you.

My Promise to you.
Choosing the right Home Inspector can be difficult. Unlike most professionals, you probably will not get to meet me until after you hire me. Furthermore, different inspectors have varying qualifications, equipment, experience, reporting methods, and yes, different pricing. One thing for sure is that a home inspection requires work, a lot of work. Ultimately a thorough insepction depends heavily on the individual inspector's own effort. If you allow me to inspect your new home, I guarantee that I will give your home my undivided attention from start to finish. This is my promise to you.
