Jeff was extremely thorough. He went in all the attics and crawl spaces, something that previous WDO inspectors had not done. He is NOT affiliated with treatment of insects which means he is not trying to sell you on a treatment plan. His only goal is to create an objective WDO report and/or educate you on what's going on in your home. He told me all about the issues I'd be facing and made recommendations based on his many years of experience. His estimates on cost were spot on. WELL worth the money, and he is someone you can trust. I will recommend him to my friends and family.

I highly recommend Blue Heron Property Inspections,Travis Johnson is a true professional,arriving before our scheduled appt. time and worked steadily for 3 hours. Only stopping to point out issues and explaining the proper way to fix them. I received very thorough reports with pictures within 2-3 hours post inspection. I am totally satisfied with Blue Heron Property Inspections and would give them '10' stars...........for their outstanding service. Thank you, Michele Vidal

This company is awesome and here is why: Thanksgiving afternoon I discovered a water leak in my home that had developed mold. I googled mold inspector and Thumbtack popped up. I entered some brief information and they immediately emailed me back with two different businesses. I sent each one my phone number asking if they would contact me. Friday morning at 9 AM I got a call from Michael of Extreme Extraction and Decontamination LLC. He asked me some questions and said he was within an hour from me and wanted to know if I would like him to come and take a look. Within that timeframe he appeared at my door. For the next few hours he assessed what was going on in my home and made some suggestions if I wanted to go with him. Yes I did. He explained to me exactly what was going to happen, what he was going to do and why. I could not believe I had this in my house. Before he left he had dryers going and had taken several samples within my home. He discovered I had two different issues and took pictures so I could see. On Saturday he came back to check on what he had done on Friday, told me what to watch for and he would be back Sunday and to call him if I had any questions. The drying took a couple of days and he checked on them each day, then he set up a restoration crew to come in and tear out what needed to be replaced. In a little over a week I'm ready to put back together. If you have a mold or water problem or anything, give Michael a call and talk to him. He's honest and will tell you what needs to be done.

I liked that Titan Certified Inspectors came in with a two man team to get the Home Inspection done very quickly which all parties appreciated. Felt we had double the experience inspecting the home to help eliminate missing anything. The appointment was scheduled quickly, they did a great job, was quick to supply the needed reports and they were happy to discuss repair issues with the client so they had a clear understanding of the issues. Suggest giving them a try if you need an inspection!!!

    During the process of closing on my first home, i needed peace of mind on such a big investment. My realtor recommended me to do a home inspection and she referred Alpha Home Inspections. The inspector, Melvyn, came to the house dressed very professionally and after introducing himself proceded to begin the inspection. I have to say he took his time and knew what he was doing. I asked a lot of questions and he answered all of them!! I was very pleased with the whole process. Im glad to have hired 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.
