First time home buyers and Meenach Inspections was phenomenal! Even in winter while snowing he walked the roof and took phenomenal care to ensure that we had the best understanding of what the house needed fixed! Saved us a tremendous amount of money on the old electrical. Honestly, I cannot think of an inspector that would take better care of you! To add this is a family business who charged an amazing price for the value of the inspection verses the chain companies nearby.

We recently had our new home inspected by John with Assured Home Inspections. John was very knowledgeable and thorough. He explained the process to us and went over the house with a fine tooth comb. He examined every nook and cranny of the house. His report was detailed and contained pictures of any problem areas. It was very easy to understand. We are so pleased with the service we received from Assured Home Inspections. We recommend them highly to everyone!

Trustworthy and experienced inspector! Extremely patient while we worked out some "technical issues" with a locked door issue. Was professional and took the time to explain his findings and provided his advice. We highly recommend him and we will be a return customer - soon!

This is my first time buying a home so all this is new to me and with limited knowledge of all the things there is to know when it comes to this. But thanks to Corey I feel better with taking the next in my home purchase. He was on time like he said, given it was on short notice he accommodated me thanks for that . he was very professional and knew a lot about his job extremely thorough with his inspection and very clear and understandable when he explains his finds. I will be recommending to family, friends, or anybody I hear looking for and inspector. Price was very fair and worth it thanks again Corey, if I need another inspection I know where to go...

I work in the restoration and construction field, so I know how important it is to not miss important inspection details. We see inspectors do it time and time again. Except for Tom, he was great to work with and did a great job on my report. I would hire him again!

    He was $100 more than the other inspectors, but he by far made up for it! He did a very thorough inspection, including getting on the roof and in the crawl space. He answered all of my questions and went above and beyond in every aspect of the visit. He is very punctual, reliable, and honest. During the inspection I dropped $10 out of my pocket and instead of keeping it for himself, he returned it back to me.

    Matt Neary did the inspection on my condo in Florence and was extremely professional, thorough and courteous. Having worked for home builders in the Dallas area for several years, I learned the importance of choosing an ASHI-certified inspector. Matt has that certification as well as NACHI and was the most reasonably priced of the three inspectors I interviewed. My realtor was also quite impressed and is now referring clients to him. Thank you, Matt!

    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.
