We are selling our house and the house inspector found mouse droppings and signs of nests so we hired Robert. He came and looked around and found nothing active. He did see a few signs so he set all kinds of traps and looked in the usual places. He came back 2-3 days later and found nothing. He told us our house was very clean and there were no rodents that he could see but he set more traps in different areas of our home and he will return in a week. Very professional and friendly. Called before he came which was a nice heads up.

He did his job well and efficiently. He arrived early and started to look around the exterior of the condo building. His report was hand written on a pre-printed form, which was different from some of the inspectors who provided a typed extended report with photos. The advantage of working with him was that I obtained the report at the end of the inspection without waiting for a couple of days. It fit my tight timeline well. He definitely provided great services for the price.

Very reliable and helpful through the entire process. I was purchasing a home and during the home inspection mold was found in the attic. The home inspector gave me the name and number for Hamco and I am pleased that he did. I was at work when the job was being done so I was not able to see if before they left. Steven took the time to contact me to make sure I was able to see the work and if I was satisfied. I explained to him that we needed to buy a ladder before we could get up there. At that time he offered to either come over with his or pick one up for us and pay him when he got here. I declined both but could not believe the customer service provided.

I WAS LUCKY TO FIND THIS CONTRACTOR Future of Construction, Inc. did a structural framing reinforce of a three family house, including the concrete foundation, stair construction, replacement of two triple windows and exterior siding. Mr. Adam Komarowski was highly professional and he always anticipated the inspector’s requirements, Adam always responds very fast at any change. The company work quality was excellent and more than I expected. I had my detailed budget and Future of Construction, Inc. estimate never went over it. I recommended them to all my friends.

Professional and thorough, quality work I am a first time home buyer and didn't know where to go for a home inspection. Things happen fast in the home buying process and I felt a little lost. I contacted a few inspectors and Tom was the first to return my phone call. He was available to inspect my new home within a week which was great. On the day of the inspection he was right on time, explained the process and what to expect, and got right to work, no dilly dallying. He performed his inspection in what I thought was a reasonable amount of time, and then took great care to discuss all of his findings with me in detail as we walked throughout the home. He answered all of my questions with satisfaction. I received a very thorough report the very next day, fully documenting and categorizing all of his findings. The format is very useful and can act as a to-do list for anything that might need attention in my new home. His report also includes useful information in how to perform regular maintenance on your home - things I wouldn't really think of as a new home owner. To top it all off, the price is extremely reasonable - actually, I feel like I got a bargain when comparing his price to others. Especially with all the ancillary benefits aside from the home inspection findings. I would definitely recommend Tom and Quality Check Home Inspection to anyone, and I know I'll use him again if I buy a new home! Bob Fall River, MA

We hired Flynn to treat a bedbug problem. They sent out an inspector who was timely, professional and friendly. He evaluated the problem, designed two treatment solutions then walked us through them both. We ended up going with the heat treatment which was very effective. I will recommend Flynn Pest Control to anyone who wants fairly-priced, professional and prompt service. They were a pleasure to work with!

Amazing! Derek is very knowledge. Don't let the fact that he's not ASHI certified fool you. I talked/reviewed a few other home inspectors before selecting him and he out performed all of them. He took the time to answer all my questions and explained his observation. The inspection report was very detailed (even with out pictures; there was an issue with the memory card) and easy to comprehend to get a good picture of the house. It pointed out areas that I clearly needed to discuss with the seller. I didn't close on the house, but his report saved me from making any rash decision and getting myself into a money pit house. Thanks Derek!

Ed Martin installed new plumbing for our bathroom remodel as well as the plumbing and a gas line for our new upstairs laundry room. We have had numerous bad experiences with plumbers and have finally found a reliable and trustworthy professional who we will be our 'go-to guy' for future projects. Everything from start to finish was great. He always shows up on time as agreed... his work is of the best quality... his pricing is fair... and he's a really nice guy to work with. He also has all the right connections for HVAC and other professionals. Look no further, this is the guy to call!

I am not able to post a review of John O'Riordan as he was ill and unable to make the inspection. He sent Mr. Stuart Liebovitz in his place. I was very, very pleased with Mr. Lieobovitz's thoroughness and care. I certatinly would recommend him to others. Vard Johnson

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.
