My name is Kevin Michaels, principle inspector and owner of Hudson Valley Property Inspections. My career as a building inspector is the result of over 35 years of inspection, design and installation experience which started in a family machine shop business in Ulster county as a Quality Control Inspector. After the sale of the family business 20 years later, I owned and operated an electronics business for 15 years, specializing in custom home theater, commercial audio / video systems and satellite installations. My many hours of training and hands-on experience with the design and installation of electronic systems in new construction as well as renovating existing structures was invaluable. As the business advanced into new technologies, I soon became NYSERDA certified in the design and installation of solar power and renewable energy while also working for the Town of Saugerties as the HUD Inspector for the 100+ properties in Town of Saugerties HUD program.
In the meantime, I branched out into Real Estate and obtained my Real Estate Licensing. This is where I realized the importance of a home inspection, especially the relationship that an inspector has with you, the client. In 2008, after taking additional home and building inspection courses and securing my professional certification and NYS Licensing, I began developing Hudson Valley Property Inspections, LLC , into a well-known and respected property inspection company throughout the Hudson Valley in New York and the surrounding communities. In 2016 I acquired my NYS Mold Assessor License in accordance with New York’s Dept. of Labor new Mold regulations.
After a full day of inspections and assessments, I enjoy playing golf, softball, bowling, and spending time with my wife and two pups (oh yeah, and the cat).
