We had Watchman Inspections inspect our home on October 9th, 2015. I would recommend them to everyone I know whether you are preparing to sell your home or purchase a new home. Watchman Inspections was very easy to communicate with as they answered my inquiry very quickly. They are very easy to communicate with, prompt, thorough, and we completely trusted them being in our home. We have gone through the process of buying/selling our homes many times and Watchman Inspections has easily become our favorite go to for inspections. I would also recommend them to anyone who needs an update on the workings of their home if it has not been inspected for a while. Watchman Inspections has been an absolute pleasure to do business with. If you are looking for trustworthy, honest, and knowledgable service in regards to you home, then this is who you are looking for.

I am selling my house and a home inspector found mold in the attic. I hired Pur360 because they said they could be out for service right away so that I didn't have to push my closing date. They came out the next day and the treatment took 24 hours. I also had a mold analysis completed to verify the treatment worked. Thanks!

We were looking to buy our first home and the home detectives were incredibly professional. On time, efficient, and courteous. We believed the home appeared perfect, but after our inspection, we learned there were hidden problems that needed to be dealt with. Totally satisfied and would definitely recommend them to everyone. Don't be fooled by other inspectors who claim to be thorough. The home detectives showed us every problem and what needed to be done and why. Down to earth and genuinely cared about our purchase. Educated us and answered every little question we had. If you are looking for someone who takes their job seriously, knows what they're talking about, and doesn't have astronomical fees, call home detectives, you won't regret it!!!!!!!!!!!!

Bruce was a pleasure to work with. He was punctual, professional and thorough. He gave us honest feedback and explained everything to us in a way that we could understand. He was good at summarizing the big picture as far as the overall condition of the home. We can now move forward confident in our purchase. I have worked with other inspectors and Bruce is by far the best. Highly recommend!

With this being my first home buying experience, I did not know what to expect, but I am very happy that I selected Master Home Inspectors!! I was sold on the length of experience alone, before I even met with the inspector. The home inspection itself, was informative and very thorough. Every process was explained to me patiently, before, and during the walk through inspection of the home. David Mcmasters made me feel very comfortable during the inspection process. My questions were encouraged and welcomed. Each question or concern I had was professionally addressed, and explained in a knowledgeable manner. The information and feedback provided by Mr. Mcmasters was informative and detailed for me to properly understand what was being discussed. Overall service was on time, safe, friendly, and honest, which is extremely important when deciding to invest into a home. I would definitely recommend and refer David Mcmasters with Master Home Inspectors for future business and services. David Mcmasters is the true definition of service with a smile. Thanks again!

I hired Mr. Hansen to inspect a home I was considering to purchase. He promptly and honestly responded to several qualifying questions which confirmed his qualifications and experience. At the site, he had an eye for details most inspectors would miss - especially decks! He takes pride in his work and took his time to make sure nothing was missed. In fact, he came back a second time just to reconfirm his measurements and maintain credibility with all stakeholders. The report took a few iterations but came out perfect in the end. I would trust his service again and would highly recommend him to others as well.

Orest inspected the house me and my husband bought in Winnetka, and we had a great experience. He was very professional and thorough, and gave a clear and readable report for us to review. We are very grateful for his patience, since my husband had quite a few questions about a few issues we suspected might become problems in the near future (it was an older home). Orest answered all of our questions thoughtfully and went out of his way to take extra time to make sure we understood everything about the condition of the house. We felt very comfortable moving forward with the sale knowing what to expect. We could not be happier with Orest's service and we are happily settled into our new home! We plan to refer him to our friends and family.

They know what is a big deal and what is a minor repair. I would recommend them to anyone who needs home inspection services.

      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.
