Jose called as planned to confirm our appointment the day before and the morning of. He was punctual. They took about 3 hours to clean all the air ducts and the dryer vent. They showed us before and after pictures as they proceeded, and the total quantity removed when they were done. They left the place clean. Jose also found that we had a light to disinfect that was not functioning. He was helpful in explaining what needed to be done, and advised to replace the dryer vent, as our home inspector had last fall. I had forgotten.

The inspector did an extremely thorough job, treated the problem, and the ants have disappeared, all for a reasonable price. I'd do business with him again in a heartbeat.

Steve is a a great inspector! He worked very hard and provided us with a detailed report of what needs to be fixed. He did not leave until he made sure that everything was inspected and that the job was done. He went an extra mile to double-check things when we had questions. I highly recommend him!

Our home inspection with Patrick was better than I could've imagined. Patrick was punctual and started working right away. He was extremely thorough, knowledgeable, and helpful (answered all of our questions and taught us a few things). On top of that, he was very personable and engaging. We learned a lot about every aspect of the house. He even brought a ladder, so that he could go up to the attic. A thorough report was emailed to me later that day. I wish all home inspections were like this!

Patrick did a fantastic job. He made special arrangements to come on a Sunday morning which he is typically off. He was there half an hour early. He did a through exterior and interior inspection and had the report ready by the afternoon. Would highly recommend him. I also added the radon test. I researched many home inspectors and choose Patrick because he was professional and explained to me the process. Many others when I called seemed to be too busy or are doing me a favor. And he was the opposite attentive and showed appreciation for my business. He did not deviate from what he described on the phone to when he did the inspection. If there was a 10 rating I would him 15. Thank you Patrick for a great job.

I really appreciate EJ’s Pest Control. After having another company cancelled my original appointment on the day of service, EJ was able to provide same day service. The staff were well trained and very professional. Although they were unable to locate the snake in my basement, they completed a thorough inspection of that area and did an excellent job placing the repellent around the perimeter and inside of the home. Not to mention their work is warranted for 30 days - that provides a great peace of mind. You should know that they do require a deposit of $50 to secure/confirm the appointment and the remaining balance is due after the service is complete. Pricing seemed somewhat reasonable: $195 for the inspection and sealing the perimeter and $275 for the inspection and removal of the snake. I am hoping the snake is gone, but I wouldn’t hesitate to call them again if he returned.

Dominic is an awesome Inspector. He took the time to go over every detail with my husband and I. He is very professional and ensured that we did not leave the home without questions being answered. He explained the typically difficult things in a way that was easy for me to understand. He is simply awesome and I will continue to refer him to others. Please go with him. You will not regret it. Remarkable service. 100 stars!!!!

Ken was great from start to finish. He took the time to talk with me before the inspection and let me know what to expect. Then, he set up an exact appointment (no four-hour window!) and worked with my schedule so I could avoid taking off too much time from work. He was on time to our place and was professional and polite, explaining more about his process and thoroughly checking out the problem. Throughout, he was excellent in his kindness, understanding, and communication. We agreed to two indoor air samples, in addition to the outside control sample. (He even talked us out of another sample as unnecessary!) Best of all, he was very calm and reassuring with my girlfriend, who was highly upset due to her asthma being seriously aggravated by the problem. As he promised, the lab results came back the next day (bad problem), and he had his full report to us the following day. It included an excellent, comprehensive protocol for selecting and hiring a remediation service. Having been through a mold situation three times in three separate places now, I can tell you firsthand how absolutely important it is to get an independent inspector/tester like Unbiased Mold Inspection, which does not do any remediation or anything else. A LOT of companies do it all, which can make their intentions suspect. With Ken and his company, you know you're getting an objective opinion from someone who's not trying to sell you more services.

We were very pleased with Les' service. His price was lower than the other quotes we received. He was patient with answering our questions ahead of his visit. He thoroughly inspected the whole home, finding a few things that our home inspector didn't alert us to. As new homeowners, Les gave us peace of mind that our worries would be taken care of. He filled holes, gave us helpful advice, and spayed to stop the bugs we had found. We will be calling him again, when needed.

I hired MJ Home Services to complete some work around my house that was on the inspection list. They offer a wide range of services but seem completely qualified and able to do everything. Roof was repaired (leak in the master bedroom from vent pipe) Mold Removed in basement front wall from a spicket leak (which they repaired as well!) I was extremely pleased to find 1 company that did everything. I received a certificate once work was completed and the entire crew was a pleasure to work with. I would recommend them if you need any type of work. Thank you John (who is the owner) he spent a hour doing the first walkthrough and was overall a overqualified inspector/owner that really seems to care which is hard to find.

I am a realtor and my client needed a home inspector at the last minute because the one she selected cancelled. I contacted SafeSales. Mr. Cheek came and did an excellent job! He was professional and explained the homes major systems in layman's terms that my first time homeowner could understand. I have since referred Mr. Cheek to other clients who have been very satisfied. He makes me look good as a realtor and they have all thanked me for referring him.

We highly recommend the All American Home Inspections Team. Our Inspector booked our appointment the same day we requested service. The price was extremely affordable. The team was on time and did an outstanding job. They provided us with a comprehensive home inspection checklist prior to beginning. We are very pleased with the service.

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.
