We did our own plumbing and it did not pass! HP came out and fixed it and the inspector said it was perfect. We are very happy. Also we decided to have some pipes replaced. They had cracks and were only going to get worse. The house is a rental so we always appreciate it when something is pointed out before it's a problem since we are not really there to observe it ourselves.

Because we are considering listing our home in the near future, I wanted to get my own inspections done before dealing with any realtors, and be able to fix whatever I could myself ahead of time. Monte was on-time, professional, thorough, and honest with what needed to be done. I used him for all three inspections: home, roof, and pest. His package price was very competitive. VERY PLEASED.

We had Outstanding construction do a full interior remodel (Kitchens/Bathrooms) including landscaping front/rear. Concrete patio and side walkway of my Moms home in Belmont. House was in need of major upgrades throughout. Entire interior was re-textured / crown moulding / kitchen demo/replace including appliances. Because KC has his own dump truck is very convenient for haul out of debris as well as pickup of landscape and other materials for the job as the job progresses. KC did have good suggestions and has the contacts to get good pricing on quality products such as Brick/cabinetry/foam accents/windows etc. Kirk and his team work very hard are conscientious and keep a tidy jobsite. He will work with any of your own subcontractors but will also provide contact details for folks he has worked with in the past. Pricing was fair after the whole job was done although it did take longer and cost more than originally estimated but from what I hear this is normal for larger re-model projects because there are so many moving parts. He had the plans drawn up and went to the city to obtain the permits...so no problems with any of the intermediate city inspections and achieved permit sign off . Our realtor who was checking in periodically on the projects progress was very impressed with the end result as was his colleagues who came to see the finished product. As testament to how well the finished product was received, when we put it on the market it sold in 7 days with multiple offers over asking. Granted alot of that had to do with the location but it also had a lot to do with the "Pop" the house had after the remodel was completed... people that looked at it were very impressed with the finished product.

Got a new 200amp electrical service and a full basement rewire. John ran it all in conduit so it looked really tidy and skillfully done. He also seemed to have a good rapport with the city electrical inspector who signed it all off. Will definitely use him again for other electrical work.

    CJ did a home inspection on a few listings of mine. He is very knowledgeable and helpful through the process. I appreciate his flexibility with scheduling and detailed reports. My clients feel much more confident and prepared going to market after working with CJ. He is one of the only inspectors I’ve worked with that will take the time to explain his findings, provide recommendations based on the clients goals, as well as offering estimates for some repairs. CJ is my go to property inspector for all my clients!

    Whitney Blake is a wonderful home inspector. He was very easy to communicate with and scheduled a prompt appointment to inspect a few homes that my company manages. I would highly recommend hiring him for your home inspection needs. Also, the report that he provided was very detailed and exactly what we needed for our purposes. Thanks again Whitney!

    Don arrived promptly at the scheduled time. He went about his work thoroughly and efficently. I liked his friendly attitude and the fact that he took time to explain why certain defects would require repair. The company does not do repair work, to avoid conflict of interest issues, but the company will set up a re-inspection after repairs have been made. There is a fee for re-inspection

    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.
