Have used other home inspectors on commercial evaluations. This inspection was far more thorough and the turn around was one day. Will be my first choice for my next inspection!

Bill is very thorough. I have little experience with home inspections, but his report seemed thorough and my realtor agreed when he read it. Bill was friendly, on time, and I feel he was a good choice for the job. He provided his report quickly.

My husband and I hired Scott Ferguson with some apprehension, as we were first-time homebuyers and have not been through this process before, and so we had no idea what to expect. His estimate, obtained through the website, was about $100 to $150 cheaper than other inspectors, which we thought was maybe a red flag. However, he is NACHI-certified so we decided to go for it. At the end of the day, I couldn't be more pleased with his service. He was professional, competent, and extremely pleasant. He went over the home thoroughly and took the time to explain everything he was doing every step of the way. I would definitely use his services again and recommend him to others.

This Company is extremely professional, honest, considerate, and kind. They arrive in a private, unmarked vehicle. They wear every day clothes. Your neighbors would never know what is going on when they are doing their inspections and treating your home. They are respectful. Every encounter I have had with them has been wonderful. I really appreciate you treating what I thought was an emergency so attentively. I would highly recommend using this company if you are looking for honest answers at a truly affordable price. Thank you so very much.

This was a great price that included all three inspections that we needed to buy our new home. We had a few hickups with the inspector but got the issues fixed quickly. I would recommend anyone who uses this company to get the FULL TYPED report from the inspector and don't let him leave anything behind. Other than that, they were good.

Our second home inspection with Frank went just as well as the first one (well with less issues). Because of Frank's expertise on the first house, we were saved from a money pit and then we were able to find the house of dreams. After working with several home inspectors and witnessing other home inspectors work, I know his passion and professionalism is second to none. I will always recommend Terra home to all my friends and family.

I used John from eagle eye inspectors for my first home. John was very helpful and knowledgable. He took his time to show us what he was looking at and what major issues the first property we looked at and decided the house was to much of a headache after John showed us things that we would have never seen on our own. We decide to continue looking and found another home that we used John again and now feel comfortable that we made a good decision on both John to inspect and our new home. Very flexible with our schedule and received our reports very fast.

Joe Kiss took the time to thoroughly explain the right solar system for our needs. He and his employees did a most professional installation of our solar array and micro-inverters, and included other electrical work we needed as part of the project. All personnel were quite careful and accommodating when working both inside and outside our home. Probably the best indicator of our project's ultimate success was the statement made by the township inspector. He said that we received a first-class installation and that, unlike some of Joe's competitors, Kiss used the finest quality materials and components for our system rather than skimp by using inferior ones. We have had many months since the system was turned on in early 2011 where our electric bill has been $0. or close to it. Although system payback was projected for 8 years, we are poised to see our return in 5 years, instead. One of the micro-inverters failed about a year and a half into its use, but as it is still under warranty, Kiss replaced it at no cost to us. In addition, we have received the promised 3 annual panel cleanings and preventive maintenance at no charge. To anyone who is considering "going solar", we highly recommend Kiss Solar (a.k.a. Kiss Electric) and their very capable team.

My buyer had L&L inspections come out to do an inspection and Don was very knowledgeable and pleasant to work with. He was punctual and offered a great price. My only gripe was the actual report. Pics were too small to make out what repairs were needed and descriptions were a little vague. He did take the time to explain in more detail once we contacted him.

Neil is absolutely the only home inspector you need in your corner when purchasing a property. Thorough is a understatement I was about to make a huge mistake on a new construction which I assumed would have no issues because it was brand new and a bit on the pricey side. 3 and a half hours later I was so glad I hired Neil. Not only did he find many major flaws in the construction where the builder cut corners that would have been very costly to me down the road he also took the time to explain everything to me so I understood. He even checked the sewer drains down the block on the corner. Buying a home is a huge investment and hiring the right inspector to help you make the right and properly informed decision is crucial and should not be skimped on. I hired Neil for my second inspection on a different property shortly after the first and he was just as informative and helpful as the first time. I plan to use him on all of my future inspections.

I used this business on two different properties and really impressed how inspector did his work. From the moment I called phone number I was greeted with the polite and professional person who arranged a convenient date and time. When I arrived at the house inspector was already there, he introduced himself to me and explained what he would be doing. We went through all areas of the house covering the areas of concern and after 2 hours or so I went away happy that a thorough inspection was done. This company is the best!

I brought a foreclosure and it was a stressful experience. The Bank was cold and unreasonable at times. Having Steven as my Inspector put my mind at ease on issues like foundation and mold. His expertise helped me better negotiate with the Bank to accommodate my concerns. It turned out to be a great investment. But without Grapevine Inspections, I probably would have walked away prematurely. I highly recommend them.

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.
