The Inspection went very well. The inspector was courteous, knowledgeable, and helpful. Fortunately there was no evidence of bed bugs in my home. The house inspection was thorough and the results were reassuring. I am glad I hired this Company

George and Jamie came out promptly and walked me through my options for repairing the liner in my chimney and the furnace flue. They stayed for nearly an hour and did all of the inspections free of charge which was a very pleasant surprise. They broke down all the costs in a series of detailed estimates and work combinations for me to choose from. Couldn’t be happier. Highly recommended.

We are selling our house and the house inspector found mouse droppings and signs of nests so we hired Robert. He came and looked around and found nothing active. He did see a few signs so he set all kinds of traps and looked in the usual places. He came back 2-3 days later and found nothing. He told us our house was very clean and there were no rodents that he could see but he set more traps in different areas of our home and he will return in a week. Very professional and friendly. Called before he came which was a nice heads up.

He did his job well and efficiently. He arrived early and started to look around the exterior of the condo building. His report was hand written on a pre-printed form, which was different from some of the inspectors who provided a typed extended report with photos. The advantage of working with him was that I obtained the report at the end of the inspection without waiting for a couple of days. It fit my tight timeline well. He definitely provided great services for the price.

Very reliable and helpful through the entire process. I was purchasing a home and during the home inspection mold was found in the attic. The home inspector gave me the name and number for Hamco and I am pleased that he did. I was at work when the job was being done so I was not able to see if before they left. Steven took the time to contact me to make sure I was able to see the work and if I was satisfied. I explained to him that we needed to buy a ladder before we could get up there. At that time he offered to either come over with his or pick one up for us and pay him when he got here. I declined both but could not believe the customer service provided.

We arrived earlier than our appointment time as Lawrence told us he likes to go early. Of course he was already on site and working for us. He was extremely thorough and explained things to us along the way. Loved his report that contained pictures and pointed out some items we should repair or ask to have looked at by a professional. I have had other inspectors who rushed through and caused us problems later I do not think that is at all the case here. Lawrence did a great job can't thank him enough

As a Realtor for 18 years I've worked with dozens of home inspectors and I have to say that Sue is excellent at what she does. Not only is she extremely responsive, she accommodates every buyers and/or sellers schedules within the necessary timelines. She educates her clients as she inspects and makes the process not only interesting but fun. My clients love her knowledge, professionalism and sense of humor but more important that she can relate to all types of people and properties.

I WAS LUCKY TO FIND THIS CONTRACTOR Future of Construction, Inc. did a structural framing reinforce of a three family house, including the concrete foundation, stair construction, replacement of two triple windows and exterior siding. Mr. Adam Komarowski was highly professional and he always anticipated the inspector’s requirements, Adam always responds very fast at any change. The company work quality was excellent and more than I expected. I had my detailed budget and Future of Construction, Inc. estimate never went over it. I recommended them to all my friends.

In seeking a licensed, certified home inspector for our home purchase in RI, we were referred to Tom Martin by a Master Home Inspector on the West Coast. Tom had gone through the same high level training as our acquaintance and came highly recommended. Tom was quick to respond to our request, flexible in meeting our turnaround time, and reasonably priced. Although he doesn’t normally service the part of RI where our new home is located, he is very accommodating to referrals. Both via phone and in person, we knew we were dealing with a professional and one who is looking out for our best interest. On inspection day, Tom arrived early to take time to inspect the area around the house and upon meeting he thoughtfully explained his inspection process. When the inspection was completed, Tom walked us through the entire house. As he explained his findings, we could see that he does a meticulous inspection. Tom also made a few suggestions for the house which are mandated in MA, where he is a certified inspector, however not required in RI. Even our realtor was impressed by the knowledge and information shared by Tom, who offered to be contacted if we needed any further assistance with the house. We received the full inspection report and photos of a minor deficiency via email the next day. We have actually contacted Tom several times in the three weeks following the inspection for his guidance prior to our home purchase. On each occasion Tom was more than willing to share his expertise and made excellent recommendations, which will continue to save us money and eliminate stress. There are many home inspectors out there and then there is Tom Martin.

Dennis and his crew have done work with me for a few years on a couple of my properties. He's been fair with his prices, and has had good humor about the whole thing, and worked with building inspectors for me. I plan to continue working with Dennis into the future.

Flynn did an awesome job spraying for Mosquitos! They use all natural products which is not harmful to our dog or any other pets. It's is also good for keeping other bugs such as ticks away. Our dog for the first time ever over the summer did not have any ticks. We were able to have cook outs and fires without any Mosquitos! It was fantastic. I highly recommend Flynn pest control they did a great job

Amazing! Derek is very knowledge. Don't let the fact that he's not ASHI certified fool you. I talked/reviewed a few other home inspectors before selecting him and he out performed all of them. He took the time to answer all my questions and explained his observation. The inspection report was very detailed (even with out pictures; there was an issue with the memory card) and easy to comprehend to get a good picture of the house. It pointed out areas that I clearly needed to discuss with the seller. I didn't close on the house, but his report saved me from making any rash decision and getting myself into a money pit house. Thanks Derek!

Ed Martin installed new plumbing for our bathroom remodel as well as the plumbing and a gas line for our new upstairs laundry room. We have had numerous bad experiences with plumbers and have finally found a reliable and trustworthy professional who we will be our 'go-to guy' for future projects. Everything from start to finish was great. He always shows up on time as agreed... his work is of the best quality... his pricing is fair... and he's a really nice guy to work with. He also has all the right connections for HVAC and other professionals. Look no further, this is the guy to call!

I had a flood in a second floor kitchen of a two family home. The tenant lives on the 1st floor and suffered a ceiling collapse and water damage to the kitchen floor. Yikes!! Wait there's more! This could and should've been a not so challenging repair until my town building inspector showed up for lack of permits on the behalf of the demo company. Long story short my 100 + yr old home now had to be upgraded before being re-inspected. I hired John as my General Contractor and in addition to providing a great plumber and plasterers he himself is a carpentry magician and made magic out of bad and unforseen challenges like old knob and tubing and corrective framing and other issues. It was due to his vast wisdom and experience that I was able to get through this nightmare without spending a kings ransom and still retain quality and inspection satisfactory work. He's seen alot so he knew how to problem solve and work miracles.

Very Very happy with the work by Braunack Electrical. I needed my home upgraded to a Breaker Box And changed to 200 amp service (home built in 1890). Keith even understood how picky the inspector is in my town. He explained everything that he was going to do fully and I also found out that 2 other Electricians I tried to hire were selling me a bill of goods on some work that wasn't needed at all!!!! Not only did I get a good and very fair price, he saved me 1000s. Will certainly be using Keith for all future work. Sincerely Hope Carpenter, Salem, MA

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.
