Jeff was amazing! I cannot recommend him highly enough. I was very nervous about my inspection and he took great time and care to walk me through every step of the process. He was extremely thorough, both getting on the roof and crawling under the house into the crawl space. So many inspectors don't take the time to do that thorough of an inspection, and to explain every step of the process with you. I cannot recommend Jeff highly enough and I will definitely use him again should the need arise!

I just purchased a home in the area and our inspector found termites in the backyard shed. I contacted Mr. Flowers and he was very responsive, answering all my questions and concerns. I also asked him to provide pest control service in our new home. On the day of service, Mr. Flowers was very punctual (he was actually early, which was great!). He went right to work and completed the job very professionally. His prices are very fair and he provides law enforcement and military discounts. I always support small business owners in the community and encourage everyone else to do the same. Mr. Flowers does an outstanding job and I recommend him 100%.

Green Home Solutions is the best of the best. My family and I had to react very quickly to an HVAC emergency in our rental property on Father's Day night that exposed the possibility of unknown mold issues. Joe answered the phone after just a few rings – a remarkable response time that immediately put us at ease and made us feel like someone would take care of us. He outlined what to expect next, and gave me an upfront, no-nonsense price for a mold inspection. Joe scheduled Daniel to come to our property within the next 48 hours, yet another rapid response time. Daniel, a 23x certified professional inspector, was everything we had hoped for. He gave us deep knowledge into the various types of molds in our region and their health hazards, as well as insight into the structural integrity of the issue we were dealing with. He thoroughly conducted both an air and strip test, documented everything he saw with photos, and even took moisture samples of the wet ceiling to let us know how to avoid potential new mold growth while the HVAC system was replaced and the ceiling was repaired by another team. Daniel and Joe got us the mold reports in record time, and I believe worked overtime to get what we needed in-hand. We hired Green Home Solutions because of their A+ reputation not only in Charleston, but across the entire Southeast, through a network of inspectors and builders who rely on them to perform routine testing. Thank you, Joe and Daniel, for going above and beyond the call to help make order out of chaos and get us the answers we needed. You have our business and our referrals for life!

This being my first dealing with Insight and home inspections in general I was concerned. The rep, Mr. Turner, put me at ease from the start and handled everything very professionally. He knew what he was doing and everything worked out just as he said it would. Excellent job Mr. Turner! Thank You, Terrell

Being a second home buyer from out of state, I was quite apprehensive about the inspection process. Both my realtor and Thumbtack provided recommendations for inspectors. Cardinal was very responsive and able to accommodate my timeframe. Robert was kind, thorough and professional. The report I received less than 48 hours after the inspection was incredibly comprehensive and detailed. I wish that I had used Cardinal to purchase my current home! I will definitely recommend Cardinal.

Great experience. The inspector was very professional, took a lot of pictures and noticed several things that I had missed (and I used to work construction). To top it off, the final report was done very professionally and included pictures with arrows to denote what needed correcting. Highly recommend.

    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.
