We had a humid, moldy unappealing crawl space that I knew would eventually cause us structural problems with rotted joists and subfloor. Lucas and his Top Choice crew did a thorough evaluation, quickly tendered a proposal to encapsulate the space and followed through on every commitment made. We couldn't be happier with the results. The work was just completed, but the area is clean and sealed and the humidity is coming down. I don't expect any more crawl space troubles.

I used Kemp Outdoor Solutions to install an irrigation system for my new home that I recently purchased. I had three estimates and decided to work with Rusty because of his fair price, the time he took to explain the system and for the materials that he recommended. Rusty took the time to explain the different sprinkler heads, number of zones and zone placement. He was the only contractor who took the time to do this during the estimate process. Once started, Rusty and his crew worked nonstop installing the system. Rusty personally laid out the system for his crew to install. When Rusty was gone, Zack (Rusty’s supervisor) and the crew worked nonstop in 95 degree heat installing the system. The crew worked extremely neat, was very polite, and cleaned up every night leaving my yard intact as much as humanly possible. The crew took the time to repair my yard from trenching, raked and compacted the soil, to enable my lawn to recover quickly. Once installed, Rusty personally adjusted all the heads to provide optimum coverage. Zack took the time to explain my “smart, wifi connected controller “which I absolutely love. I decided on this controller based on Rusty's recommendation and as far as I am concerned, was a home run. To be honest, being a retired builder and residential home inspector from up north, I tend to be critical on contractors in general. There was absolutely nothing for me to be critical about. I found Rusty to be head and shoulders above most contractors I have dealt with and I would definitely not hesitate to recommend or use Kemp Outdoor Solutions in the future.

    From our very first contact, Jeff was the consummate professional and he just came across genuine. Jeff was easy to work with and he adjusted to our schedule. He called to reconfirm our inspection two days prior and again the morning of to insure we had the time for a thorough inspection. From the moment he arrived at our home he provided proof of credentials, reiterates what we previously discussed on the phone, stated what and where he needed access to, asked if we were okay with his freedom of movement or did he want us to check in before he moved locations, and get this, "he welcomed us to accompany him at any point and to ask questions at any time." Upon completion he took his time explaining what his concerns were and shared photos to aide in our conversation. He told us when he left late afternoon that our report will be emailed to us that evening. True to his word, I received an email by the end of supper as we were just clearing the table. The report was well thought out leaving little room for questions or misunderstanding. There were plenty of photographs accompanying the report and detailed photos where I thought they were needed. Our experience with having Jeff as our home inspector was phenomenal and we HIGHLY recommend his work. There's no doubt that when I need another inspection Jeff will be the first person we reach out to.

    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.
