Jason seems a nice person. Reasonable price and knew how to resolve a plumbing issue. He had to redo the piping work for kitchen sink. He knew what he was doing. Also he installed my Nest thermostat and it seems to be working fine. He could only test the heating though and I have to wait to see if cooling is OK? My feeling is that it will be fine but I still need to wait till May 2016.

I was amazed with all the problems he found in a home that was just remodeled . I guess there is a reason why he holds the title of "Master Inspector" . I tagged along for the inspection and I was glad I did because I learned a lot from him about how a home operates . I really don't think other inspectors are as thorough as he is. He inspected every room in the home very carefully which irritated my agent and the seller. When I was looking for an inspector online I was searching for the most qualified inspector not the cheapest inspector. Overall my potential home was in great condition , my primary concern was the structure and foundation which turned out to be good. So I have to say that Zack will be working for me and my family in the future if we ever need to purchase another home.

Ken was great to work with on our home inspection. If you are looking for a true professional who won't cut corners, I highly recommend Ken. We needed our radon test to be in the home for 48 hours and Ken set out with little notice to get the equipment in on the seller's clock so that we would not run into any obstacles. Thanks so much Ken! We appreciate the time you took to do a great and thorough job for us.

Mike did a great job. Would not hesitate to recommend him. Our inspection report was thorough, comprehensive and detailed with excellent quality photos. Turnaround time was excellent. At first glance, Mike did not appear to be competitive with other quotes, but we then realized his quote INCLUDED termite and radon testing, while the others did not. Made his fee very competitive. Super nice guy too.

Bob was there early and already completed everything that was accessible on the outside of the house. He went through the entire home and the outside a second time. He answered all of my (many) questions. Bob pointed out all the positive, negative and questionable aspects of the house. His turn around on the report was quick, less that 48 hours. His report is thorough, easy to follow/read and includes photos for reference. His price was fair and reasonable. I went with the home inspection, termite cert, radon testing and also had mold samples tested. Do-Rite Property Inspection is highly recommended!!!

Phil provided excellent service, and was very thorough with his inspection. His price is very reasonable, and he even offered to take off Radon testing since I didn't really need it, but I still went ahead and got the Radon done for my own mental peace. This clearly shows he is an honest person, who has his client's best interest at heart.

the problem was fixed, but it seemed like an electrician should have figured it out quicker than Jason did. I had blown my kitchen lighting fixture. There are two dimmer switches, the master and the 'slave'. Jason spent the first hour replacing these outlet switches with new ones I'd purchased. That didn't fix the problem, so he was ready to have me order another entire transformer. I called the manufacturer and explained what had happened. They told me the transformer has a toggle switch that prevents the transformer from being damaged. I flipped that switch and the fixture worked perfectly! So, I don't know if the transformer switch would have fixed it immediately, or if putting in the new dimmer switches was also needed. I just wish Jason had thought to test the transformer before spending over an hour changing out the dimmer switches.

Mark Bendit came as scheduled and was thorough in his assessment of the mold and testing for water damage and eased this owner's mind when he kindly explained the process of filing my claim. He even spoke with my insurance agent. I would recommend this company very highly.

    I have had two home inspections by Chris. The first home inspection was on a house I had put an offer on and Chris spotted serious foundation damage that the owner had tried to cover up instead of fix- I never would have picked that up. Needless to say I passed on that house. On both inspections Chris was extremely thorough and professional. I give him my highest recommendation Alex B

    I called Inspection & Remediation Services to do a mold test at a client's house. They were very professional and helpful. We were able to schedule an appointment the same day and had the lab results the next afternoon. They are definitely the company I will be using and recommending for any mold or air quality testing. Pleasure to do business with.

    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.
