Installed Air Conditioning in a 75 year old house. Worked hard and had to constantly find new solutions when the house presented an unexpected challenge. Had a bit of trouble meeting town code requirements, but worked with the inspector until the task was completed

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.

We were very pleased with the prompt contact and follow up by Daniel Lombardo of Millyard Home Inspections relative to our request for a home inspection. Throughout the process he was friendly, helpful and professional. Daniel was able to meet our need to have an inspection completed as soon as possible. On the date of the inspection Daniel was prompt, thorough and knowledgable in his explanation and completion of the process. As promised the inspection report was provided to us promptly. Daniel's report was thorough and clearly identified his findings. We would definitely recommend Millyard Home Inspections to family and friends.

Larry provided a very detailed home inspection for a new construction condo in Boston. I had contacted him through thumbtack with short notice. I had interviewed other home inspectors but Larry did a great job. I also received a very professional inspection report with photos and details to provide for my punch list at the closing. He worked diligently with me and understood my concerns and challenges in purchasing new construction.

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.

I hired Ron to convert an old oil-based heating system to a tankless gas-based hot water/heating system. I just can say the job was done to perfection !!! He did the job in 2-1/2 days, including the removal of the old boiler, water tank and oil tanks. The piping routes were very well laid-out to minimize changes in the old system. He obtained all necessary permits from City Hall, got clearance from the city inspector, gave me a rebate form for the heater had a very reasonable price for the job.

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 had a flood in a second floor kitchen of a two family home. The tenant lives on the 1st floor and suffered a ceiling collapse and water damage to the kitchen floor. Yikes!! Wait there's more! This could and should've been a not so challenging repair until my town building inspector showed up for lack of permits on the behalf of the demo company. Long story short my 100 + yr old home now had to be upgraded before being re-inspected. I hired John as my General Contractor and in addition to providing a great plumber and plasterers he himself is a carpentry magician and made magic out of bad and unforseen challenges like old knob and tubing and corrective framing and other issues. It was due to his vast wisdom and experience that I was able to get through this nightmare without spending a kings ransom and still retain quality and inspection satisfactory work. He's seen alot so he knew how to problem solve and work miracles.

Very Very happy with the work by Braunack Electrical. I needed my home upgraded to a Breaker Box And changed to 200 amp service (home built in 1890). Keith even understood how picky the inspector is in my town. He explained everything that he was going to do fully and I also found out that 2 other Electricians I tried to hire were selling me a bill of goods on some work that wasn't needed at all!!!! Not only did I get a good and very fair price, he saved me 1000s. Will certainly be using Keith for all future work. Sincerely Hope Carpenter, Salem, MA

This is my 4th home purchase and it was the first time I've walked away from a home inspection feeling as if I'd probably made the best investment I've ever made on my new property. Kurt was the most thorough and knowledgeable inspector I've ever encountered. He has an extensive background in home construction and ventures where most home inspectors fear to tread. His report, which included photos of every item that needed attention was the best I've ever encountered and shows me exactly what items I need to attend to once I'm in my new home. He's also very personable and answered all of my questions completely and to my satisfaction. If you're buying or even selling, please consider Kurt for all of my inspection requirements.

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.
