"I highly recommend Alltech for their inspection services. I have had Tom Sr. perform an inspection on a home I decided not to purchase and then I had Alltech and Tom Jr. perform the inspection on the home I have decided to purchase. Both times the service and professionalism were outstanding. The reports are detailed. The information was essential in my decision."

"We have had two pre-purchase home inspections done by Clearview Home Inspections Eccl.9:10. On both occassions, Mr. Chioda conducted the most thorough home inspections we have ever had. I do not say this lightly, because, as buyers of rental properties, we have had over thirty home inspections done over the years, so we know how to rate inspection services, and we are happy to say Mr. Chioda's Clearview Home Inspections Eccl.9:10 is THE BEST OF THE BEST!!! Mr. Chioda arrived early to do the exterior inspection process, which included everything from the grounds to the roof, from the foundation to the chimney top, from curb to doorstep, and everything in between. He then went on to do the interior inspection and left nothing uninspected. During the entire process, he was very patient with our questions and often stopped to point out things we should particulary note regarding the house. Even though Mr. Chioda sent us a full and detailed review of the property, complete with detailed photos of every key feature, on the same day, via email, he still took the time to review everything with us during and at the completion of the inspection process. Mr. Chioda's rates for his services are very good. We were very impressed with the real value we received from Mr. Chioda's services, and his commitment to doing a truly excellent and professional home inspection. We would recommend Mr. Chioda's Clearview Home Inspections Eccl.9:10 to anyone, and especially to first time buyers. Even a brand new construction house can still have many issues the builder has left unfinished or incorrectly finished. A good home inspection can save you thousands of dollars by having the seller fix any problems with your new home before you buy it. We would also like to suggest for anyone thinking of selling your home, that you have a complete home inspection done before listing your property for sale. The relatively low cost of a complete home inspection will more than pay for itself, as it will reveal issues that you, as a homeowner thinking of selling, should know about your home. It is much better to know about potential problems so you can address these issues for two reasons. Number one - just for your own sake, you need to know about any possible safety concerns you will want to fix right away, so you can live in your home safely. Number two - potential buyers of your home will most likely want to have a home inspection, and will often attempt to offer you a lower price for your home and/or ask you to fix any issues revealed in the inspection. You can avoid unpleasant surprises and take care of these issues before putting your house up for sale. You will also enjoy having the peace of mind that comes from knowing your home is safe to live in, not only for your own family, but for the new family that will buy your home from you. It is always good to know you have done the right thing. You may also want to consider having an inspection of your current home. Even in the best kept homes where you perform regular maintenance, there still may be issues you would want to address. In one home Mr. Chioda inspected for us, the owner maintained everything in perfect, meticulous, spotless good order. The owner had regular servicing of the furnace on a scheduled basis. However, when Mr. Chioda inspected the furnace, he found that a small hose connection had become loosened and a tiny water leak had started. Since it was many months before the next schuduled furnace maintenance, the homeowner really was able to benefit from the knowledge that this hose was loose, and they had it corrected right away. Had it gone unrepaired, it might have cost them a lot of money to fix it. There are many other issues that can affect any home over a period of time, so it is a good idea to have an inspection at least every five to ten years just to be on the safe side. After all, you wouldn't wait twenty years between going to your doctor or dentist for a check up. Why take chances with your home? Overall, we would rate Mr. Chioda's Clearview Home Inspections Eccl.9:10 to be the best home inspection service we have ever used. Mr. Chioda himself is a very professional, but also very open and friendly person who takes the time to be professional and thorough in his work, as well as forthright and pleasant in his manners. If you would like to contact me for a reference, my name is Kathy Quito David, and my email address is kwqd@hotmail.com Please feel free to contact me anytime."

"Working with Chris and his wife, Kristen was exceptional from start to finish. The cost was very reasonable and Chris took 3 hours doing the inspection - very thorough and as a home buyer I was very grateful. Unlike most inspectors, he walked on the roof as well. We had the inspection report that evening. He did 4 day radon testing. I would highly recommend Chris to any new home owners out there. His construction experience and knowledge was greatly appreciated. Thank you Chris and Kristen!!!"

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.
