Oscar and his crew did the framing, roof, and stucco for our new workshop and studio. All of the work was good quality, on -time and within budget. Oscar is especially good at keeping your project on track and moving ahead without unnecessary delays. He works well with inspectors and is knowledgeable about what's required to pass the first time. He kept in touch with us through texts, emails, and phone. We'll certainly call on Oscar again!

I would like to recommend REDDINGTON ELECTRIC. Brandon (owner) came out right away; free of charge, assessed the damage and estimated cost and time for the repairs. Brandon is very meticulous, skilled, and hard-working individual. Throughout the process he kept us in the loop. He worked well with our insurance company. He acquired materials, permits and in the end all was approved by the inspector. Very reasonably priced and just a great person to work with. We could not be more pleased with Brandon and Reddington Electric LLC..

Illuminate Inspections was recommended by our Realtor and we were not disappointed. Sam was very flexible with our schedule, punctual and very polite. He was very through, looking at and making notes on everything. He was willing to answer any questions we had during the inspection and was very available to us as this was our first inspection. His report was very detailed and easy to understand. It was also very convenient to access online and download. He made us aware of all the things that needed to be fixed and what was the proper way to have it done. The price seemed very reasonable and competitive to other inspectors we looked into. Over all we were very impressed and happy with Illuminate Inspections. We purchased the house with confidence, knowing exactly what condition it was in.

Michael did an absolutely amazing job on the electrical in my home to duplex remodel. I needed an all new circuit breaker, an upgrade in amps to my house, a ton of wiring to go through conduit on my roof and much more. During my renovation to convert my home into a duplex, Michael knew literally everything that needed to be done for my electrical needs and he knew exactly what I needed within the first 20 minutes of meeting him. He was the most fair priced that I could find and stuck strictly to his quote which was nice because I don't like surprises. He was extremely meticulous with his work. As an OSHA certified inspector for the Air Force, I can assure you that Michael works very well within the regulations. The electrical job had to be inspected twice for two different reasons, and the inspectors from the power company passed Michael's work the first time with flying colors. I'm an extremely honest reviewer and think it's important to share your experience, whether it is good or bad, and I promise anyone who reads this, that you cannot go wrong with Michael. I will be recommending and hiring him for any jobs I have in the future.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What is a home inspection?

A home inspection is a visual inspection performed by a trained professional to determine the condition of a home’s main elements. The inspection usually takes several hours, during which the professional takes multiple photos and notes, tracking information for a final report. After the inspection, the pro will create a printed report, complete with photos and detailed information, summarizing the condition of the house. A home inspection is often used by potential home buyers prior to purchase to determine if there are larger issues (such as dry rot or a faulty foundation) that are not immediately visible to the untrained eye but that would cost a lot of money to resolve. Home inspections are also used by real estate agents and home sellers to address any concerns before putting a home on the market. Longtime homeowners can also schedule a home inspection to get a snapshot of their current home condition and identify any issues that need to be addressed. A home inspection is not a legal document that can be used for divorce or estate settlements, nor can it be used to secure loans or mortgages.

How do you find a good home inspector?

A home inspection should tell you the true condition of a home. A competent home inspector closely inspects your home’s structure and foundation, looks for termites and signs of problems like mold, checks the wiring to ensure it’s in good condition, and investigates the HVAC system, among other items. To find a good home inspector, first research whether home inspection is licensed in your area; not all states require licensure.

If there is no regulatory body that licenses home inspection in your state, there are other ways to make sure you are hiring a trustworthy professional. Carefully look into the person’s reviews and ask for references. Ask if they are committed to continuing education, and whether they are active members in any reputable home inspector organizations. Some organizations that recognize and/or certify home inspectors are the American Society of Home Inspectors, National Association of Certified Home Inspectors, and American Home Inspectors Training. Don’t be shy about asking to see credentials and licensing.

What should be included in a home inspection?

A complete home inspection involves a visual investigation of all major elements that make up your home. A home inspection is a vital part of buying or selling a home to ensure you’re not accidentally buying a termite-infested home or one with major structural defects. Paying for an inspection before purchasing a home can save you a lot of money in the long run. The national average home inspection cost is $310, with prices ranging higher or lower based on your location and the square footage of your home. After performing a walk-through inspection, the pro should provide you a printed report — complete with photos and recommendations — detailing what’s in good condition, what would benefit from minor repairs, and what needs immediate attention. Home inspection pros know how to spot trouble areas, but they’re not licensed contractors, electricians or plumbers, so they may suggest you hire a licensed pro to address specific problems. Here are the main components that a home inspection covers:

  • Home structure
    • Foundation, grading and drainage, roof covering, roof structure, interior and exterior attic walls, ceilings and floors, interior and exterior doors, windows, stairways, fireplace and chimney, porches, balconies, decks, attached carports, and crawl space.
  • Electrical
    • HVAC system, heating equipment, cooling equipment, ductwork and vents, fixtures and switches, branch circuits, receptacles, service entrance and panels.
  • Plumbing
    • Water heater and equipment, drains, waste systems, vents, and plumbing fixtures.
  • Appliances
    • Garage door openers, garbage disposal, dishwasher, exhaust range, range hood, bathroom exhaust fans, cooktop, oven and microwave.

How much does it cost to get a house appraised and inspected?

Home appraisals and home inspections both assess your home and provide a report summarizing the condition or value of your home based on key measurements. Unlike a home inspection for the sale of a property, a home appraisal is used for loan applications, property value assessment for sales or settlements (divorce, estate, etc.), and taxes and insurance. If you’re having your home appraised for lending purposes, you’ll likely need a state-certified appraiser, so be sure to your research their credentials. Nationally, the average cost for a home appraisal is $340.

If you’re buying or selling a home, having a professional home inspection can be an invaluable tool for price-setting and negotiation, as well as learning what repairs are necessary. The national average home inspection cost is $310, ranging higher or lower depending on the inspection company, your location and the size of your home. Other factors that can affect cost are additional inspection services and pathogen testing. Here are some examples of average home inspection costs in various parts of the country:

  • Home inspection in New York City: $425 or more.
  • Condo inspection in New York City: $200 or more.
  • Home inspection in Central Texas: $250 for homes up to 2,000 square feet.
    • $275 for homes from 3,001-4,000 square feet.
    • $300 for homes from 4,001-5,000 square feet.
    • $325 for homes 5,001 square feet and up, plus 10 cents per additional square foot.
  • Home inspection in Los Angeles: $199-$299 or more.

How long does it take to do a home inspection?

On average, you can expect a standard home inspection to take two to three hours. Your house size can affect inspection length, as can requesting additional services such as sprinkler system inspections, outbuilding inspections, radon testing, crawl space inspections, or pool house inspections. During the home inspection, the professional will be taking photos and looking in and around all parts of your home. The inspector will then compile a report that may be more than 20 pages. You should receive this report back within a few days to a week. The report should detail everything from minor imperfections and maintenance recommendations to major defects that need to be resolved as soon as possible, like structural failures or a leak in the basement. Your report should include photos and clearly outlined information about all major elements inspected, as well as recommendations for next steps.
