"Mike was a great asset to our house buying process. He has a great knowledge of what to look for and is eager to give suggestions of ways to resolve any issue he finds. He was willing to allow me to tag along as he did his inspection and was ready to answer any questions that I had. He also gave a good verbal assessment of issues that would be listed in his report before he left. I always felt that Mike was working for me and giving me a honest opinion. We received his inspection report within hours and the report was professional with good written detail along with photos showing problems with overlay arrows in the picture. If you hire Mike for your home inspection you will not be disappointed! Covington Home Inspections will be my recommendation to anyone that asks me if I know a good home inspection company."

"The best home inspection I ever experienced, very thorough. Past home inspections missed many issues in the homes I purchased. I would recommend A1A as the best in the Tulsa and surrounding areas. Jim is more than home inspector, he is a city building code inspector. Thanks Jim for taking your time and explanations of problems you found in the home."

"I live in Monett, MO and hired Jason Cochran to build a privacy fence for my back yard. First let me say that I sent out the request out on thumbtack on Thursday morning at 7:00. Jason had responded by 7:30. After talking with Jason on the phone he quoted me an excellent price for building the fence and told me that he could do the project the following week so I hired him. One week later Jason will be out to finish the project today and it looks fantastic. Everything is straight, plumb and just the way I envisioned it when I hired him. Jason is easy to work with, prompt, and does high quality work. But that's not all...he stayed in touch with me by phone, through text, etc...to keep me up to date as to when the material would be in, when he expected to be here, and if he was running late. Seriously who else does that in the contracting business? I also asked him to do some things outside the scope of the project and he was happy to help me out. He truly cares about taking care of his customers and it's obvious that he takes pride in his work. I would HIGHLY recommend Jason to anyone and the next time I need a general contractor for anything I will hire him in a heartbeat. "

"Justin Blunt is a licensed electrician and knows his business. He walked in the door and in minutes had our problem fixed. He listened to what we said, diagnosed the issue, and fixed it on the spot. We hired him to come back and do more electric work for our current remodel. In addition, he is just a "good guy"--the kind of man you would want to come to your home. He is professional, prompt, and a hard worker, doing outstanding work! Moreover, his pricing is fair and certainly worth every penny!"

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.
