About Us


Henrey Jetty President / Founder

My name is Henrey Jetty and I am the owner of Veterans Home Inspection Services LLC (VHIS). After retiring from the Army I wanted to continue using my skills developed in over 30 years in the Army Special Operations:attention to detail, the ability to anticipate critical issues and quickly adapting to changing situations.

Now, I use that same vigilance and dedication to my Home Inspection business. I would appreciate the opportunity to personally conduct a professional Home Inspection for you and your family. I am available 7 days a week for your convenience. VHIS reports can be delivered over the Internet to anywhere in the world. My comprehensive reports are computer generated .PDF file in a narrative format. VHIS reports outline the home's structural and functional components along with all safety concerns. Your Home Inspection report will be written in layman's terms, including documented photos with detailed descriptions of my observations. Aerial photos are included in the report if weather and location permits the use of my Drone.

My goal is to minimize the stress that can come with home ownership. I know that this can be best accomplished by providing you with an informative Home Inspection Report and answering your questions during the onsite inspection. I highly encourage my Clients (with their family) to attend the home inspection with me.Your Home Inspection Report will encompass all visually accessible elements of the home and property. This will enable you to make an educated decision and negotiate repairs prior to the final sale, based on facts provided in the inspection report and in conjunction with you participating in a thorough onsite inspection.

If you are looking for inspection prices and an example VHIS Home Inspection report, go the Services page on this website. Take the time to review my example reports. Your VHIS report will not be done onsite and you may have to wait 3-4 hours after the inspection for it to arrive in your email. Each home is unique and may have issues that takes time to fully research the condition, the cause and the recommend repairs. Not all Home Inspectors reports are the same and very few are as detailed as the VHIS Home Inspection Report.If a Realtor is recommending an Inspector, you should review their website, services, and prices. There are other Home Inspectors in the Rochester area that have hand written five page checklist reports with no pictures or complete their minimized boiler plate reports on site. Check and compare the quality of other home inspection reports with a VHIS report before you make your decision.

I am looking forward to meeting you and your family and booking your Home Inspection.

  • Identified major defects

Inspection Report is Not a Repair List For Seller:

You probably have assumed that when you hire me as your home inspector, the VHIS Report would be a complete repair list for the home you're buying. I've done a thorough job and may have disclosed problems with the property. Maybe it was in the plumbing or the electric wiring or perhaps it was the roof. What if the seller refuses to fix anything or are they willing to work with you? Is the seller responsible to make these repairs? Were you under the impression that the sellers must repair the problems discovered by your home inspection report?

This process can be all very disillusioning. This is a common misunderstanding about the purpose of a home inspection. Clients often view an inspection report as a mandatory repair list for the seller. The fact is sellers are not required to produce a flawless house. They have no such obligation by law or by contract. All homes need some repairs or maintenance. The critical issues covered in my report are with functionality, safety, or structural aspects of the home.

Talk with your agent and discuss how you want to proceed with the negotiations. Is the house priced correctly as is? Are the owners willing to make repairs or give a credit towards specific repairs? Will your home insurance company give you a policy with needed repairs? Look over the requirements for a VA, HUD, FHA or other loans and ensure that if repairs are needed the issues can be resolved prior to closing.

If you can check with the local building departments for permits and the original plot map for the house. The disclosure statement (dos 1614-A) may show improvements or issues related to the house (or not).

Talk with your agent before you forward your inspection report to anyone. You have paid for the report and have no obligation in the state of New York to give it away. Once the report has been forwarded to a third party, they may use it for whatever purpose they see fit. You can re-sell your report to any interested party if you can make the deal. This may include a radon report. You may want to include a statement that limits the distribution of the report without your consent.

As your home inspector, I will not say if you should buy the house or not. I will give you the best report that I can provide and make recommendations to any needed repairs. I cannot provide exact estimates to the cost of repairs. You and your agent may want to ask for at least 3 qualified and licensed contractors to give detailed scope of work and cost estimates.

Try to look for and discuss "big ticket" issues that may cause a "deal breaker", before the home inspection. Ask the seller if they have conducted a pre-inspection and ask to see the report. I am available 7 days a week for any questions text or email 585-362-2848.
