NYS Licensed Inspector

Kevin Melquist

Cobblestone Inspections owner Kevin Melquist brings more than 20 years of extensive, hands-on, real-life construction industry experience to home and commercial inspections. He has been and continues to be involved with all aspects of construction including estimating, building, maintenance, and sales. He is a NYS Licensed Home Inspector # 16000058514.

Kevin started working as a carpenter after he graduated from high school, eventually opening his own construction company in 2002. In addition to building houses from the ground up, Kevin also served as a project manager for a commercial roofing company. He now specializes in commercial roof inspections, as well as commercial property inspections and a wide range of home inspection services, sharing the knowledge he developed from years in the roofing and construction industry.

In 2005, Kevin obtained his real estate license and started working as an agent while continuing his construction work. This gave him extensive hands-on experience in listing and selling houses, and finding properties to rehabilitate and flip. Kevin’s background in construction and real estate instilled valuable knowledge and the skills to properly inspect and evaluate all areas of residential and commercial construction.

Kevin named his business in honor of his parents, who owned a restaurant when he was growing up called Cobblestones. When he’s not inspecting, building or restoring homes and buildings, Kevin is busy with his wife Karianne and 7 children, who stay active in baseball, football, and soccer. He loves to explore the history of properties and areas around Pennsylvania and New York, and volunteers with local community organizations. He also follows sports that involve strategy, like baseball and hockey and being outdoors hunting and bicycle riding.



Since adding home and commercial inspections to his repertoire, Kevin has come to relish the role of teacher. He loves the opportunity to show customers about the structures and systems in their current and future homes or workplaces. He also enjoys sharing his experience with new building inspectors and subcontractors and helping them get started in the business.
