Did a great job! I would highly recommend him. Very impressed. He even had to come back (which most inspectors do not do) and he did. What great service!

Two knowledgeable inspectors showed up promptly and encouraged me and my husband to follow them around the home and learn about the property and ask any questions. I appreciate the fast turn around of the inspection report!

Was able to do what the initial contractor was not. Dismantled fire ring that was improperly provided and fit it into the box. Fire is flowing perfectly now.

Bill was waiting at the house when I arrived. He went about his inspections and occasionally reported what he found. He was extremely thorough, professional and very polite to everyone present. I would highly recommend Bill Iwanicki with Inspectify!

We hired Michael to inspect our house on Longboat Key and it was a great experience. On the day of the inspection it was raining and we were afraid that we would need to reschedule. Micheal and his team went ahead anyway! When the inspection was finished he took us around and showed us all the findings. He carefully went through each item recommending possible solutions. There were several water stains on the ceiling in the closet which he was able to show were dry with his X-ray camera. The roof was new so we were sure the stains were old. Cool toy! That night we received the huge report filled with pictures and recommendations. We liked the service because he brought along other services, something most home inspectors apparently don't do - at least the ones I called. I would definitely recommend Michael and Direct inspections!

Steve has done many 4 point and Wind Mitigation inspections for our clients and he is prompt, helpful, thorough and easy to work with. If an inspection is needed in a hurry he is always willing to help out the client and re-arrange schedules to accommodate them. His reports are very accurate, easy to read and includes numerous photos from all angles when needed. I would highly recommend Steve's company for any inspections needs. Karen Fazio

I needed a home inspection in a hurry and not only was I pleased with the inspection itself, but the professionalism of the inspector and patience he had to walk me through everything he found, was second to none. Highly recommended.

Great experience with this company. I loved the messaging system they use that updated me every step of the way. I had them inspect my home after a home inspector spotted areas with mold in my property. They provided me with different options to help me move forward and fix the mold problem.

I went with Dennis because although he was not the least expensive he had great reviews and is a certified master inspector. We needed a last minute home inspection and Dennis was able to work with us to fit us in! He was so helpful and patient with us as first time home buyers! Thank you for giving us piece of mind!

I had Mr. Anthony from Best Home Inspections do a home inspection on my home and was very satisfied with the service he provided, the cost was very reasonable, the report was easy to understand and he answered everything I didn't understand. I would recommend this company if your looking for a good home inspector at a good price.

Stephen (owner and inspector) was prompt, courteous, experienced knowledgeable and thorough. Not a resident of the local area, I consulted Thumbtack for bids for a home I wanted to purchase. The quote was fairly priced, and included both the 4-point inspection and wind mitigation. Stephen was very responsive to my follow-up calls concerning questions I had, including requests for repair estimates. He encountered several issues (i.e. soft spot in ceiling, grading of drainage area outside of sunroom, exterior waterproofing) I should watch for in the future, which was great, because I wouldn't even know to look out for those areas! Wife Sherri, who works in the office, was on top of things as well. She was my first point of contact, and I felt comfortable that they knew their stuff and would do a good job. Would definitely use again and recommend.

What an awesome crew! Super professional, very timely! They got the job done when they said they would and I have a quality report with tons of color photos. Onsite, the inspectors did a great job explaining to me what risks I potentially will face with my new home. Thanks again!

About

I like to work with customers who are looking to purchase a home. Some Home Inspectors will "over look" certain things during the home inspection just to close a real estate deal. My reports are always thorough, accurate and reflect the true condition of the home.

About

After 30 years of building, designing, and managing the mechanical systems in all sorts of buildings I started a Home Inspection business to help home buyers and sellers to understand the condition of their home and its systems and components. I enjoy helping my customers in making their decision to either buy or sell their home.

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.
