Joe is very detailed oriented. He checks the roof in details and finds the smallest deficiencies and imperfections. He checked everything, all systems, tested the appliances and took the time with me explaining the builder deficiencies. Again his report was very detail oriented that helped me a lot with a decision... Best Regards, John

What a pleasure to work with this kind & skillful couple! We had a slight leak under our kitchen sink. They responded quickly, scheduled easily & immediately, and showed up on time & well-prepared. Quickly identified the problem (damaged disposal - wet & rusted circuitry), demonstrated & discussed the issue & possible solutions with us, located replacement parts & had them installed for us all very promptly. They even gave the dishwasher a test run to be sure everything functioned with no leaks. I really appreciated that they showed care & respect for our home & family. These folks are top-notch. We will definitely be reaching out to them for future assistance & referrals! Their well-rounded skill set makes them a go-to for any home repair & renovation needs. Thank you, Fransys & Bladimir!

Rance did an inspection on our home Sat. He was on time, very polite and friendly. He was extremely thorough. He answered any questions we had. We had some cracking in our tile and were very concerned about it. Lance explained to us that we need to have a foundation company come out to make sure its not the foundation that is cracked. He did check for any other signs that we could have (above door jams, cracks in walls, dry wall etc.) He took his time and checked everything. We would definitely use Rance again and would strongly recommend him to anyone who is in need of a Home Inspection.

My wife Ashley and I recently purchased our first home last June. We were lucky enough to be part of the build process from the foundation all the way to the paint color! Our excitement soon wore off and was replaced with frustrations after many delays pushed our close date back first a month, then two months, and then finally over three months. Needless to say we almost didn’t expect to be homeowners before 2014 came to a close. But we did get into our home on the 31st of December and are extremely excited to be homeowners! If we had this to do over again we may or may not choose to build a home but what we are sure of is that we will make sure to give Ross Lorimer a call at Triple Pass Home Inspection. The name of his companies testifies to his thoroughness - he literally will walk each square foot of your home at least three times to ensure nothing is missed. Ross’ knowledge and experience also shows in the report you will get after the inspection is complete. We were able to submit this report to our builder and every flaw that was pointed out by Ross was fixed! Lastly one thing about my experience that might be particular to our situation is that when Ross inspected our home the gas had yet to be turned on. Ross made sure to put pressure on our builder time and time again to get into the home to reinspect the gas after it was hooked up but before our scheduled close date. This helped us go to our closing with the confidence we wanted. Buying a home is a big deal - and one that you don’t want to go into alone. Make sure to put Ross from Triple Pass Home Inspection on your side next time you decide to purchase a new or used home - you truly will not be disappointed. We already have it on our calendar for him to come out and reinspect before our builder warranty runs out next year!

John Snow took on a complex restoration/construction job for me on a historic property. He saved me a great deal of money compared with the other estimates I had obtained. The work involved construction, roofing, plumbing, electrical, painting, foundation work, HVAC, etc. He is very knowledgeable, meticulous, works well with subcontractors and completes work on time. I have highly recommended him to everyone for all projects whether small or complex.

Steven Tennison did a thorough inspection of the new house I expect to buy and he friendly explained me every part of the house and systems that were tested. The expertise he has and techniques to perform the inspection was key to find the details that need to be fixed. I consider him as a trusted advisor and recommend him and his company as a reliable source whenever an expert inspection is needed

I would definitely recommend Jack! He was efficient and very pleasant. He tested the dishwasher for any leaks, made sure to show us his work, and made the adjustments we wanted. He did a great job! He really deserves a 4.5 stars!

    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.
