This was an experience full of ups and downs. The gentleman walked in, looked at our fireplace for 2 minutes and said, "That will be $99." We were perplexed that this was the extent of the inspection. They went on though, to thoroughly clean the fireplace and he went outside to inspect the chimney as well. We also had them install gas logs in our fireplace. They had to remove an existing stubborn piece from the fireplace that was rusted on. We tried to suggest a product that we had in our home to remove the rust and were told, "That will never work." They continued to pry at the rusty pipe until we were told they were going to have to break it, go into our drywall and replace it (for an additional cost). Finally, we asked them to please try the product, they did and the pipe came right off! This success was followed by, "Wow that must have been a fluke! It couldn't have been this product." After this, they quickly set everything else up and offered to give us some rocks to finish off the look of our fireplace. Everything worked perfectly. So... we love the end result and everything works perfectly...just some interesting interactions along the way.

Very Honest Plumbing Company! 'Tritan is hands down our go to plumber from now on. I had purchased a $150 deal to replace our outdoor spigot that has been giving us issues. After a few weeks went by without me scheduling the service, they went out of their way to contact us to get it done. After coming out, they realized that the issues were due to a few screws and that the spigot did not need to be fully replaced. They ended up recommending we get a full refund on the deal purchase and instead just pay the $50 service fee. No question they could have gotten away with just replacing the spigot, especially given that the purchase had already been made. By far one of the most honest services we have ever had and we will put them on speed dial for future issues.'

    Scott was fantastic! He inspected a potential condo for me and was very professional and friendly. He was very thorough and walked me through all of the issues in the home even though the were minor. He followed up the same day with a full report of the inspection and was patient as he answered a few of my outstanding questions. Thanks, Scott!

    There is nothing negative I can say about working with IPI. They were able to change appointments on very short notice. They were on time, professional and made the effort to explain things to my wife (I was not present at the inspection due to work). the full report they sent us had more than enough info to allow us to make our decisions. Highly recommend

    About

    With regards to home inspection services, my company motto is "The customer comes first". I show that by treating every customer like you are my mother. My primary concern is that you're informed and educated on the condition of one of the most valuable items you might purchase: your home! I use a thermal imager on every home inspection, and I do not charge additional for it like some other home inspection company do. Performing a home inspection in the absence of a thermal imager is like driving blindfolded. I want you to be part of the process. I want you to be present at the home inspection, so you can ensure how the house works. When you lease Pinnacle Property Inspection Services, design on 3-5 hours for your home inspection procedure. Again, I am not in a hurry to work through your inspection. I desire to develop friendship and trust with every customer I meet. If you prefer me and the work I perform, you will commend me to your family and friends.

    I learned from the best, my father, who is now retired. The one thing he taught me was that if I can't do it right, don't do it at all.

    Q & A

    Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

    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 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.

    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 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.

    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.
