Very good communication with ATM from scheduling to completion. The inspection and written report were thorough. He gave us a few helpful comments about the foundation that the structural engineer didn't cover with us.

First Home buying purchase inspection was done by Clif. Clif was at the home before hand to do the exterior of the home and also he went there two days before to put the Radon test in the home because it takes 48 hours to get a proper read. Luckily we had it done.. the home needs treatment. Clif was very welcoming with a big smile and excited to help us in the inspection process. He was very thorough, took his time and double checked things. When it came time for him to do Summery he explained in great detail and within 5 hours later we had a full report on the home. Clif also was willing to beat anyone's rate that he had by $25 less. But even if could match he is your man. Highly-rated and recommended from us. Thank you Clif!!!

Scheduled the appointment on a Saturday, no extra charge. He arrived early and started going to work on the inspection. Very nice guy, easy going. Answered a lot of questions. He also did the radon test. He made a second trip out to the house a few days later because the seller forgot to turn on the water and gas. The inspection reports were done very quickly, and thorough. No negatives :)

Great work, best price. Showed up five minutes early, did the work contracted to do, and was very professional and courteous. Even did a quick spot check for my chimney, even though the work was to clean the dryer vent. Took out a bird's nest and tested to ensure better flow. Cleaned up and reconnected everything like he was never there. Would hire again.

Simply the best. The only inspector I use and have for 10 years. I don't even give my clients a list of inspectors to choose from, because I haven't found one better and would be doing my clients a disservice to suggest others I know aren't as good. Extremely thorough and a nice guy too!. Prices are in line with other inspectors. Won't scare buyers and will try to explain alternative ways to fix an issue. Knows mold inside out and also does mold testing and remediation. If you want the best, and are prepared for a very thorough inspection, hire him.

Matthew went above and beyond coming over to my house to rewire & reconnect my Nest thermostat that Google Fiber had installed that day, but left without making sure that my HEAT worked! I called Google and they said it would be at least 2 DAYS before they could send someone out, and they were going to charge me $75!!! It got down to 29 that night- my house was already freezing and it was only 47 outside when I gave Matt a call. He was able to drop what he was doing at 8pm that night and considered this to be a high priority due to the risk of damage to my house from pipes potentially freezing, along with the risk to my family's health! He got here less than 30 minutes and it took him less than 15 minutes to diagnosis the issue (Google had connected 2 wires into the wrong terminal, along with not flipping the circuit breaker to the HVAC system back on), and he was able to ensure the entire system was working- my heat and heat pump, it was obviously too cold out to test the A/C, but was able to check it yesterday and it works fine. Besides the prompt professional service, what really stood out was that he REFUSED TO CHARGE ME for the trip, even when I kept insisting that he accept something!! So Matt, I hope that you will accept this review as my satisfaction to a job well done! I will be in touch!!

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.
