Our professionals and your projects

The quality and usefulness of any investigation, report or recommendation depend upon the knowledge and experience of the person who conducts the inspection and follow-up. While many states have established some minimum standards for home inspections, the building inspection industry is still largely unregulated. That means the extent and quality of the site inspection, report and follow-up assistance vary significantly, as do the expertise and credentials of the inspectors.

Lockatong’s engineers exceed the minimum requirements and are members of several national organizations, most notably the National Academy of Building Inspector Engineers (NABIE). As Professional Engineers, we provide our clients with an independent, accurate and unbiased evaluation of a property and its components, making recommendations without regard to a particular product or service.

A word about Professional Engineers: The PE license awarded by each state is your assurance that the engineer is knowledgeable, ethical — and accountable. Accountability is a true measure of commitment to one’s profession and clients. In addition to their professional qualifications, all of Lockatong’s engineers participate in continuing education programs, intensive training and regular peer reviews.
