"I needed to have a home inspection. Before I selected a company, I read some reviews on the internet. I ran across Corner Stone Home inspections and I called and spoke with Mr. Clayton. He was polite and professional when he answered the phone. I explained what I was needing and the turn around time. Mr. Clayton walked me through the process and the timeframe he could complete the inspection. It was exactly what I needed, so I hired him. When he arrived at my home, he was on time, clean cut, and spoke very professional. He thank me for my business, before he even started the job. I thought that was good. It gave me a great feeling about him and the company. He completed the inspection and within 24 hours I had my report. It was detail and Mr. Clayton took the time to explain each page and provided his recommendation on the purchase of the home. With this being my first home, I was apprehensive and didn't want to make any mistakes. The whole process was a success. I took his recommendations and I couldn't be happier with the home I purchased. I have referred some friends to Corner stone and when they told me that there was a bad review, I went out to read it. I was sadden by the comments that were made regarding Mr. Clayton. Mr. Clayton was totally professional throughout the process. I truly believe his company is a Christian company. I could feel it. His language was always professional throughout the process. He even took the time to follow up and see what decision I made on the purchase of my home. He didn't have to do that, but because he cares about people and their well being, he took that extra step. Without a doubt, this is a credible company and the staff is amazing. As a consumer you can make your own decision, but don't let one review make you miss out on a great company and a great inspector. I would recommend Corner Stone Home Inspection without hesitation. Also, my friends did not have any complaints with his service. I wouldn't send my friends to anyone I thought would do them wrong. Mr. Clayton, don't let that review tarnish you. Keep being the Christian that you are and God will provide. They talked about Jesus and even crucified him and he was innocent, but in the end he got the victory. Keep doing what you do, providing remarkable service. God Bless ECharles"

"Chuck did an excellent job. I expect nothing but the very best when it comes to hiring people and Chuck fit the bill to a tee. He was extremely thorough and provided me an extensive report with his findings later the same day. He spotted quite a few things I would have never thought of. This was my first time getting a home inspection and Chuck couldn't have made the experience any better. He took the job seriously and truly cared about making sure I knew the problems he saw with the property. Chuck followed up with me via email with additional questions I had. He's very affordable and you won't go wrong with hiring Chuck."

"I used On Top Service to inspect my chimney and fireplace. Not only were they on time but they arrived early only after calling me first to let me know they were 10 minutes away. Upon arriving the employee was in uniform, professional, courteous, and friendly. He took his time and was extremely thorough. After completing the inspection he took the time to go into detail informing me of a couple existing problems. Even when my wife had trouble understanding he had the heart of a teacher and simplified the explanation and honestly answered all her questions. Never did we feel pressured or like he was trying to up sell us. When leaving he gave us his personal cell number and told us to call if we had anymore questions. He also told us to expect a written report to be emailed within 48 hours. To my surprise it was in my inbox the next morning. I very seldom take the time to write a review but because of the excellent service I received it is my pleasure. I've already highly recommended On Top Service to several friends and business associates. Look no further. Contractors like this are hard to find!"

"David did a home inspection for us for a 20 year old house. He did a very thorough job of going through every item in his checklist. He made sure every major and minor issues were photographed. He explained to us what needs to be fixed/ replaced. He answered all our concerns well. He made a very detailed report of the inspection and sent it to us within a couple hours. We needed an estimate of how much the fixes will take and he gave a quick summary of that without charging us extra. We would highly recommend David for this job!"

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.
