The home inspection was unbelievably thorough. I had a home inspection before and it was just 2 pages with check boxes. Mill River Inspections was a 46 page report with photos and recommendations. Mill River was also moderately priced in comparison to the other inspectors. Would highly recommend Mill River.

I have bought multiple homes and hired different home inspectors to get the job done. KJ by far is the best one I came across and I will surely be using his services going forward. His price is very reasonable as well and send you the report in timely fashion.

Mick is the best! He was very thorough with his inspection and explained every aspect of it. Mick is extremely professional and was at the job site prior to appointment time. He actually began exterior inspections prior to me getting to the property and was able to get me up to speed on the few issues he had found. I am very pleased with the service I received and would recommend Mick anytime.

I have dealt with many contractors in my lifetime , however I can honestly say it was a pleasure dealing with Dan. I hired Dan to replace a deck on my home prior to putting it in the market for sale. Dan not only did an excellent job on the deck, he helped me make economical solutions to various repairs and remodel that ultimately help sale my home. What was most impressive is that Dan dealt with the constant hassle from the building department in a patient and professional manner. Most importantly the craftsmanship of the deck was so impressive that the inspector said "Your Contractor did right by you and built a deck that will outlast any deck I have seen in the past 2 years." If I was not moving out of state I would hire Dan to do any project in my house because it is not often you come across a true Master Carpenter and that is what you will get when you hire Dan.

We highly recommend using Alan and PHI for home inspections. We found PHI through the high number of positive reviews received on the BBB website, and decided to go with them to inspect our prospective house in the Stamford area. At a surprisingly affordable rate, Alan spent almost 4 hours with us, going over the house, from attic to basement, backyard to front yard, roof to crawlspace. He pointed out issues we would not have noticed. With his camera, he took photos during the inspection that he could review more closely later. During his review of the photos, Alan found evidence of pests, and took the time to make a second visit back to the property to ensure what he saw were pests or not. Alan is very passionate about building and inspection, and seems very interested in what he does. Within 48 hours after the inspection, Alan provided a detailed, comprehensive report with accompanying photos of the inspection which later helped in negotiations with the seller. We were very pleased with Alan's services and would hire PHI again in the future.

Glenn is very reasonable and reliable, he's more affordable than the other inspectors he goes above and beyond home inspection, after inspecting he'll help you to find solutions to the problems he found. In the form of links to the appropriate source, so you can make an educated decision.

Very knowledgeable inspector. His experience was impressive and clearly imminent when we first met outside, to go over the roof. His tips and tricks documented in the inspection report saved water from entering my basement.

My inspector was great! He was very quick to respond to my calls and questions. He was early to the appointment and priced in line with other inspectors I had contacted, but where I think he separates him self in value is in his detailed report with pictures and the availability of his IR camera services. I used his report to help guide me in areas the house needed attending to first. I have referred several of my friends to him and I will be using Solid City Home Inspection exclusively for any inspections I have for as long as I'm in Levittown, NY.

Needed a last minute home inspection. A friend recommended Square One Professional Home Inspectors, I called them right up and he was able to coordinate an appointment to my schedule. The inspection lasted over an hour and they sent me the report the next day. Exactly what i needed. Very professional.

I have used many home inspectors in the past, but Lance from Eagle Eye is a notable step up from the rest. Being in construction myself, I was very impressed with his knowledge in building construction, heating, electrical and plumbing systems. There were no short cuts with Lance, very meticulous to details and left no stone unturned. His professional, courteous and friendly attitude was a pleasure to deal with. I will definitely be using Eagle Eye again on my next purchase.

I have never found an inspector as detailed oriented as Brian Sweig. His knowledge was crucial during the purchase of my home. Brian's expertise saved me thousands of dollars on what could have been a money pit. I would recommend Brian to anyone looking to purchase a new home, preparing to sell their home or trying to figure out underlying issues in their current home.

    Jim did a home inspection for us that convinced us not to buy the house we were looking at. The seller's real estate agent pressured him to change his report but he stood his ground and we were impressed by his integrity. When we needed a rush inspection on another house Jim couldn't be there but he referred another inspector who did a good job as well, and we went on to purchase the house. We were happy with the service and the referral. I recommend him.

      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.
