  The New York Cosmos began to play in 1971, spending 14 seasons in the North American Soccer League, winning five Soccer Bowl trophies, and bringing some of the biggest names in world soccer to the USA. This included Pelé, Franz Beckenbauer, Giorgio Chinaglia and Carlos Alberto. It had been nearly 30 years since the Cosmos, an iconic global soccer club, played in a professional league. Yet throughout their absence, the club maintained a loyal and dedicated fan following. On Aug. 3, 2013, the New York Cosmos returned to the NASL with a sell-out win at Hofstra University’s Shuart Stadium, before embarking on a season that would see the Cosmos win the 2013 North American Soccer League Fall Season. Visit NY Cosmos for schedule and ticket pricesThe opening game is tomorrow April 3rd, 2016 a...

                          Can you see the potential for water intrusion in this picture? There are actually three, three that are simple to fix, or if left alone, can be costly to repair. One, the downspout does not have an extension. This will result in rain water pooling around the foundation which could then seep through the foundation walls and into the basement. Second, if you look closely the window cap is not caulked. Wind driven rain can also work its way into the interior , not to mention energy loss.The third, and most striking observation is the window. I wanted to take the picture at just the right angle so viewers could see the serious flaw in this renovation. Take note of how high the dirt is, almost even with the bottom of the window. The dirt is level when it should slop...

One of the things that inspectors look for is structural defects in floor joists. In a recent home inspection I noticed the floor in the dining room had a little too much bounce about a 1/2  foot from the wall facing north. It's normal to have some deflection in the middle of the room due to the load the joist carries from furniture. No more than a 1/2 inch is acceptable. however when there is a lot of bounce and/or sags in the floor then further investigation is required.                                                                      An Electrical Upgrade In the basement I noticed some bored holes made in two floor joists. The owners informed us of a recent electrical upgrade that required the installation of a metal raceway for the larger electrical conductors. Floor joists are ...

In my previous post I stressed the importance of having the right size gutters installed on houses and commercial buildings. Depending on the volume of water entering the gutter system, larger sizes may be needed to successfully drain rain water away from the structure. The size of the gutters and downspouts largely depends on the size and shape of the roof. Once the correct size is determined, a good secure installation is vital.                                                                                            Then and Now Gutters at one time was installed with the use of aluminum spikes nailed into the fascia boards. This was a problem because the spikes were known to pull away from the fascias creating a sag due to the weight of snow, ice, rotted fascia boards and bad instal...

Recently I got a phone call from a client that I did an inspection for in September. Highly upset he stated that he and his family just moved in their house and cannot use the water from the sinks and bathtub. "My water is brown and has a low flow." As I was looking up his report he continued saying his plumber ran water from the water heater and this is what the inspector should have done, if he did he would have caught this. The problem is you need a new water heater. Convinced that I gave him a faulty inspection, he demanded that I pay for a new water heater.                                                           Read Your Inspection Report Going over the report with him, I asked him to read the plumbing section carefully. It boldly and clearly states:  Note that the inspector doe...

Many of my friends from other parts of the country appear to on the verge of having a stroke when they hear how much real estate taxes are on Long Island.  Many of my friends live in very nice suburban areas outside of New York and cannot fathom how taxes could have gotten so high where I live and work.  They have great schools, excellent services, and real estate taxes of generally less than $3,000 per year.  In Nassau County, there are more than a small handful of houses where taxes exceed that amount per month.   For example, in Nassau County, a small Cape Cod-style house recently sold in Hempstead for $80,000.  This would make it among the least expensive houses in the entire county.  What were the real estate taxes?  How about $14,262?  Yes, the annual real estate taxes equal almos...

After a long, cold and wet winter spring is finally here. With longer daylight hours, spring is the perfect time to look around the house and make repairs where necessary, especially if you plan to sell your house. Maintaining and repairing your house before putting it on the market is the best way to sell your home faster. So where should you begin? Well sellers should think like buyers. Buyers are mostly concerned with the condition of the roof since it could be the most costly to repair or replace, so let's begin there.                                                                           Roof Covering If you could safely do so, inspect the roof covering. If you find problems such as leaks, worn sections, missing shingle parts, damaged or deteriorated flashing, bowed or cupped sh...
