We had the fortune of having Zack as our inspector. He was very thorough, which was exactly what we were looking for in an inspector. I can not say enough great things about him as he was amazing!! He was extremely efficient and attentive. He spent a lot of time doing an amazing job and even making suggestions and recommendations for repairs. He even gave us rough estimate how much repairs would cost. The experience was fantastic because we now understand the property we are purchasing . Zack even did our termite inspection as well. He was not one of the inspectors recommended by my realtor but I am so glad I did my own research and went with him. We waited to after closing and after we moved in to leave our review just to make sure no new surprises arose.

Ken is a great home inspector. I researched many inspectors prior to hiring one and he had the most thorough reports. He is honest and tells you what really needs attention and what doesn't. Any special requests to be added on the report he will do. His prices are comparable to other inspectors but much more through. My agent actually has begun to use Ken for his clients inspections. It is much easier to negotiate when the items of concern are mentioned in the inspection report.

My husband and I were first time home buyers with not a lot of knowledge when it comes to homes and anything that needs to be fixed. We knew we needed to hire a home inspector that we could trust. Bob has many years experience and also has been a realtor, so that was an extra bonus. He gave our home a thorough inspection and came back to us with a very detailed report. He helped us make an educated decision on what we needed to address with our home. I highly recommend Bob to anyone that is looking for a trustworthy, honest, courteous, reliable home inspector.

Dan showed up on time to look at my roof/chimney that was leaking. He gave me an estimate on the spot. This was Saturday morning. Monday morning he came and fixed my roof, sending me progress pictures along the way. We had a really bad storm last night, and not a drop of water in my attic. Problem fixed. They also gave me a 5 year warranty if anything goes wrong they will fix, no questions asked. Great job and a nice guy!

I have bought multiple homes and hired different home inspectors to get the job done. KJ by far is the best one I came across and I will surely be using his services going forward. His price is very reasonable as well and send you the report in timely fashion.

Our business with Wisebuild construction has now concluded, and we could not be happier with the results. The site supervisor Frank, was a down to earth person who was patient with us in regard to answering questions and had a keen understanding of roofing materials, techniques, and the specifics about what we could expect from his company. After looking at the paint colors on our freshly painted house, Frank recommended a darker roof to compliment the house. While skeptical at first, Frank's recommendation proved to be right. On the day of completion, neighbors walked by and complimented us on our choice of colors saying that the roof complimented the house and the house complimented the roof. We agreed, and are glad we listened to Frank's suggestion. Throughout both days of removing the old roof and installing the new one, I was up and down off the roof watching what was happening and how it was happening. The efficiency of the Wisebuild roofers was impressive. They worked like a fine tuned machine, always moving, always supporting one another when necessary, and yet demonstrating that each man in his own right was a professional roofer. When the day was over I felt in awe of their skills, their work ethic, and even the playful demeanor between members of the crew. When the roof, the skylight, the vents, the chimney, the gutters, and the cleanup were completed, we felt grateful that we had chosen Wisebuild to replace our roof. As a retired school teacher, I would give the company an A+. We feel nothing but goodwill and gratitude toward Wisebuild, Frank, and every member of that work crew. As it turned out, every claim made by Frank came to fruition. After this experience, my wife and I will never turn to any other roofing company for any level of needed support.

I am pleased to say I will be giving this company a 4 star rating. I've dealt with several chimney repair companies and never have I crossed with one that actually would complete the work with such diligence until I received services from All Season. They were very clean with their work,and had great time management. Previous to them starting work,I received a detailed explanation of how and what would be done to fix my issues,as well as photos. I am highly satisfied with the work that was done,such a professional company with reasonable pricing. 10/10 would recommend them to anybody.

A few days ago I had a new stove delivered while they delivered it to my kitchen they suddenly said that the connection required a license electrician. Thank God for Thumbtack and Mike. He answered quickly what's Pleasant and efficient with a sense of humor and was here all of 20 minutes. I would recommend his work to anyone who is tired of contractors who take hours to do a simple task or who overcharged I felt that his rate was good and I fully intend to use him again if I have additional electrical needs. He's on the permanent Rolodex

When we were looking for an inspector for our first house most of the places we called were not available for over a week or didn't even reply to our calls or emails. DenCia responded right away. All within one weekend we had our inspection appointment and our report. We were very happy that the inspector found the issues he did, we were able to get some money off for repairs and now we're happy in our new house! Thank you!

Don is very fast in response and keep his promise. He did a thorough job in the inspection, explain all our questions as well as what he was doing in each step. He also produced the report the same day (couple of hours after inspection) which is very critical to time sensitive buyers. The thermostat he uses and the warranty are both something we only see from him. In one word, u get what u paid. He is awesome!

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.
