He did a good job and was here very quickly. Before I found him on Thumbtack I had called 4 other termite inspectors for an emergency. None could come that day. Then I checked Thumbtack and he was there a few hours later. Thank you!

We asked Paul to do our home inspection after hearing how great of a job he had done for friends of ours. He responded quickly and traveled 200 miles to complete the inspection! He was meticulous and even informed us of the things we may seek to have issues with down the road. I appreciated that because I feel this can be something inspectors frequently overlook so they can only give you the "good" news. He spent half of the day inspecting and then took the time to talking with us on any concerns etc. I would highly recommend using A plus if you want the job done right!

Mike comes highly recommended by my entire family. We have used Mike twice and my father-in-law has used him as well. He exceeded our expectations each time. He is a breath of fresh air after dealing with so many other inspectors in the past that just didn't cut it. I have been dealing with inspectors for my company and I could never find one that was realiable until I met Mike. Mike shows up on time and is knowledgeable in many aspects beyond inspections. I couldn't ask for better service with my needs. I look forward to having Mike inspect our new home that we will be purchasing in 2018. Thank you again Mike for everything you do for me and my entire family.

Todd performed a home inspection on a newly built home I am in the process of closing on located in west Houston. Todd was very punctual and professional and pointed out several items that my builder had missed. One item in particular that stands out is the fact that that at the time of the inspection, the builder had neglected to install the thermostat so the HVAC system could not be tested. Todd agreed to re-visit the property at a later dated to complete the inspection once the builder had installed the thermostat. It is my understanding that most inspectors charge a re-inspection fee to perform this service. Todd agreed to waive his re-inspection fee and delivered a revised inspection report in a prompt manner. I highly recommend Todd's services to anyone that needs a home inspection. Great customer service and quality!

I went at the end of the inspection and the inspector took me through the house and showed me the issues that she found. I got my report the next day. I would use her again if I ever buy another house.

Michelle was amazing! She went step by step through our inspection with us and showed us any problem areas that the house had. She has great advice and made purchasing our home a little less stressful. As a former Realtor, I have worked with many inspectors and I must say, Michelle is top notch!

We hired Meticulous Home Inspections for both an initial and follow-up new home inspection prior to moving in. Thanks to their incredible attention to detail, they saved us a few headaches and potentially a significant amount of money in the future. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Meticulous Home Inspections for anyone getting ready to purchase a new home, because no doubt, the money spent on this inspection will more than pay for itself in the long run. We have have never dealt with a company more thorough than Meticulous Home Inspections. You won' be disappointed. Thanks again!! -Mass4

I am a first time home buyer, and was skeptical on hiring a professional home inspector because they all have an expertise in one area. Well, Brady exceeded all my expectations because he is knowledgeable in every area. I felt extremely comfortable asking questions and he was honest with every answer. From the nails on the roof to the mulch on the ground, he covered every square inch of the home with perfection!!! I'm extremely satisfied with Brady, and will recommend him to my friends and family. Thank you for your business!!

I needed a full house inspection done. I thought the inspector, Jeremy, was very punctual, professional and thorough. After the inspection he even did a walk through so we knew what to expect. He was very personable and polite. I would suggest southern value inspections to all my friends and family.

    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.
