We needed to perform a quick move for my mother-in-law. We accepted Resident Safety Home Inspections offer. Terrell and his team was on-time, communicated well leading up to arrival. Additionally, the move ended up being more complex due to the amount of stuff that she had packed away in every corner of her home. This didn’t faze this team, the reassured us that they would make sure the move was successful. They worked very hard and cared about their work. I would highly recommend them for any of their services. We will be using them again! Thank you Terrell! A+ Job Please feel free to use us a reference.

We are so glad we found James for the inspection. He was very professional, extremely thorough and incredibally knowledgable in the field. We couldnt have been happier with the result. His education in construction management and experience in building homes is really invaluable. The faults he found would have been easily missed by any other inspector who doesnt have construction experience. This is our 5th home in last 15 years. We have seen in the past inspectors make deals with realtors to gain future business etc... Not with James, he is very honest to his profession.his report shows all facts with pictures..Best of all he gave us an extremy resonable price. We would recommend him to anyone who is looking to get home inspected by a true professional without breaking the bank:). If we had a chance to hire him again for home inspection,we would do it in a heart beat.

I am a research kind of person, and I looked at many different home inspectors before I decided to work with Reveal. It was a great experience! The inspection was thorough, and he explained everything he found to me. Justin provided a complete report with pictures, his observations, and he backed everything up with current codes and regulations, which helped us with getting the sellers to pay for repairs/remedies. I HIGHLY recommend Reveal Home Inspections, I wouldn't feel comfortable buying a home without their help!

I hired CAI to do my inspection for the purchase of a new home in Westerville. Matt Keifer was my inspector. I have bought and sold 3 homes in two different states over the last two years, and have had the chance to see several different inspectors, both good and bad. Matt Keifer is, by far, the best inspector I have had the pleasure to work with. He is very personable but extremely professional and thorough. He looked at many things I wouldn't have expected to be part of a general home inspection. More importantly, he was able to give clear and easy to understand explanations of the issues he uncovered. At the end of the inspection I felt extremely comfortable that I knew exactly what condition my house was in. Following the inspection, Matt continued to be available and very responsive to my questions. I would absolutely hire CAI again and request Matt.

Prior to putting my home on the market, I decided to do a home inspection. I think all sellers should consider doing this prior to listing your home. I found Don Stepp by a Google search. I had several inspectors to choose from in my area. What made my choice easy was knowing that Don had spent many years working in the building business. He might be new to the home inspection business but his knowledge of home building and maintenance was priceless! In addition to the 60 page report, Don answered all my questions. He never made me feel like I was asking too many questions. I now feel I can easily put my house on the market, knowing that Don had inspected it thoroughly. Thank You Don!!!

EXCELLENT CUSTOMER SERVICE and DETAILED REVIEW. Inspect my home did a very thorough inspection and I found out about all of the issues that the home I was purchasing had. The majority of issues were not major ones but just a few of the ones that the seller paid for more than made up for the inspection’s cost. Our inspector Frank had a great eye and even pointed out items that we would want to do maintenance on later. The service was very professional and he took the time to explain what he was seeing. That same evening he provided us with a detailed report that summarizes the entire inspection and important items at the beginning and a more detailed report including pictures of any items in need of repair. The report tells you why the item needs repair and how to follow up to repair the item. The report is very easy to read with clear descriptions even for someone that doesn't know much about home repairs. Overall they are a great inspection company and I highly recommend you give them a call if you are buying a new home.

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!

Cap City is the way to go. They brought my attention to some problems with the roof so I gave the report to the listing agent and the sellers agreed to replace the entire thing! The inspector walked my home with me and patiently answered every question I had. The inspection report was well written and highly detailed, with concise descriptions illustrated with high definition photos. Because of Cap City's professionalism and keen attention to detail, I can rest assured that I'm making the right choice. Thanks Cap City.

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.
