"Rich was extremely thorough and helpful during my home engineering inspection. He noted all of the home's areas of concern and patiently explained why they mattered. I would recommend Rich to anyone who is looking for a detailed home engineering inspection. He is exceptionally helpful to first time home buyers as he explained the major components of a home."

"Highest quality home inspector you will find. I called Rich on a Saturday afternoon in November 2015 and he agreed to do an inspection the next day (Sunday) at noon. Rich was 5 minutes early and spent over 3 hours on the property. He pointed out numerous hazards large and small and took all the time necessary to explain the appropriate fixes. Rich was friendly, outgoing, thorough...and best of all he made a recommendation which given his 22 years of experience is more helpful than just filing a detailed report."

"I highly recommend Rich Gallagher. Before the appointment Rich and I spoke on the phone a few times. He provided some great advice. On the day of the appointment, Rich arrived at the house ahead of schedule. He was very friendly and professional. During the inspection Rich was very patient and answered all my questions. He was extremely thorough and explained every step. He is very knowledgable and offered great advice. Rich prepared the report and emailed it to me the very same day! Very fast turnaround. I really appreciated that. Outstanding job. **UPDATE** I'm purchasing a second home and hired Rich again. I originally met Rich in 2013 and he did an outstanding job at my first inspection. It's now 2015 and I'm purchasing another home. Of course, I hired Rich again. This guy is amazing. My real estate agent said that he had never seen a more thorough inspector in the business. I think that says a lot. I recommend Rich to everyone I know who is buying a house in the Hamptons."

"Rich performed an inspection of a summer home me, my wife and my sister are looking to purchase on the North Fork of Long Island. We were greatly impressed by the thoroughness and professionalism of the inspection. As first time home buyers we very much appreciated that Rich took the time to patiently explain all of the components of the house, how they worked, and things we should be aware of. I would highly recommend his services. "

"Rich was very informative and explained in detail all aspects of the house during the inspection. He took the time to explain all necessary repairs and why they would be required. He also informed me of the general construction of the home from the time era it was built, detailing potential problemematic materials the house could be constructed with (in areas that we couldn't view). The report was sent to me within a day, no hassels or waiting. All in all I was VERY happy with the detail that went into the inspection and to have someone like Rich to take the time and explain everything without the feeling of having questions unanswered. It made me feel confident in the purchase of the home and safe in the future. Thank you again!"

"Staylor Home Inspection was wonderful. Rich was punctual, thorough and didn't mind taking the time to explain everything to me, in fact I think he very much enjoyed talking about anything technical. Luckily he did it in a way I could understand. There were enough headaches in buying a house, thankfully the inspection wasn't one of them."

"Rich Gallagher, Home Inspections by Staylor Ltd., is simply the best! We recently had Rich inspect two homes for us, one built in 1911, the other in 1940 (with 2005 renovations). We just purchased one of them. And we have experienced home inspections in the past. In addition to obvious care and concern, Rich brings deep knowledge and experience to the inspection; his knowledge of changing construction methods and techniques over time is notable and clearly helpful in assessing homes of the age we were considering. As important is Rich�s ability to explain what he sees, and his natural willingness to share in detail his thinking and respond fully to all questions. Rich�s written report sets forth his conclusions and recommendations, as well as safety information, and also provides, something we hadn�t seen before, an introductory explanation of the purpose of each structure and system, a useful reminder of their significance.."

"Very thorough, thank you and appreciate the quick turnaround!"

Westhampton, Suffolk County, NY


"I work in real estate and have been on a lot of home inspections so, when buying a house for myself, I knew exactly what I wanted in a home inspector and what I didn't want. Rich was very professional, thorough, kept it simple, and knew his stuff. I have dealt with inspectors before that are so caught up in showing the buyer how amazingly brilliant they are about minute details, that the process gets bogged down and it's hard to understand what is important and what isn't. This guy is great. I'd use him again and recommend him to anyone looking to purchase a home. Real meat and potatoes, no b.s."

"Our experience with Rich Gallagher was amazing! He is extremely knowledgeable and a true professional. During the inspection he took the time to show us and explain to us all of the "ins" and "outs" of the home. He excels at taking complex technical information about a home and explaining it in a way that is easy to understand. In addition Rich is friendly, reliable, punctual and very experienced. I would gladly use him again and feel comfortable recommending him to all of my friends and family.'"

"Thanks very much for the inspection report and for the very quick response, both to our request to do the inspection on short notice, and for getting us the report so quickly!  I enjoyed meeting you and talking about the house.  It was an education.  We are very happy and relieved to see your overall assessment is 'very good.'"

"Rich is a great guy. He was punctual, honest and very informative. He not only explained things to me but also my wife if she had a question even if he already told me. I found his information to be accurate and honest. I would strongly suggest if you need a home inspection this is your man.'"

"Your inspection was very thorough, educational, and you really turned the report around fast. If anyone is looking for a home inspector, I will definitely be recommending your services"

Long Island, NY


"As a first time home buyer I was very nervous and wanted to do some homework and choose the right home inspection. I personally found it smarter to go with an inspector that also has a background in engineering. I found a few and started making some phone calls. If you make phone calls to a few companies make sure you make an additional call to Richard at Staylor. You will notice that he is very thorough and takes his time explaining EVERYTHING to you; you can see this man knows his stuff (not to mention his prices were EXTREMELY fair!) Upon meeting and working with Richard I found him very knowledgeable, he took his time showing me and explaining everything to me, and there was no question I couldn't ask. He was very professional and made my experience a wonderful one. Thank you Richard! I will definitely recommend your company!"

"We got the electronic copy of the report. They are easy to understand and are more comprehensive than I would have ever been able to manage. Thank you for inspecting the Lake Drive house for us and thank you for the time to explain what you were observing and recommending."

Southold, Suffolk County, NY

"Thank you for the quick turnaround on getting this report to us within 24 hours. We also really appreciated the details you provided as we walked through the house with you. Taking the time to explain what you were looking at/checking for and why, made us feel included in the process as well as comfortable and confident.  Plus it gave us added knowledge of the home we might not have had with someone else."
