Very prompt, knowledgeable and personable. They got right to it and hit all the hot spots. They even found active termite activity in our backyard. Something our home inspector missed. Would definitely recommend and use again.

I had to get a pre-purchase home inspection completed in a 5 day timeframe, and Mr. Clayton was VERY accommodating to my schedule. He was able to do an evening appointment since I worked until 5 every day, and he took his time on the inspection, never running or rushing between rooms (something I have noticed with some other inspectors I've previously worked with). When we arrived, he let us follow him around the house and was always receptive and took time to answer our questions on the spot. At the end of the inspection, he let us scroll through all 120+ pictures and video (it was a 1700sf home) and explained every item that he noticed, again taking time to answer all questions. I love his digital video format that he provides for the home inspection report, and I'm sure it won't be long until others catch on. The seller of the home was in Mexico at the time of the negotiations and the video helped immensely in negotiating the selling price on the home versus only having pictures. I trust Mr. Clayton's expertise and would definitely recommend him to my friends and family who are in the market to purchase a home. Nowadays it's hard to find an inspector who you can trust, because it is definitely a seller's market, and hard to find someone who is unbiased.

As a real estate professional, it is important to me that I only refer those vendors whom I would use myself. Greg Contreras is one of those people. He is always professional, courteous, warm and friendly when he shows up for inspections. Greg always arrives early and carefully explains what the inspection will entail and how the process works. He is extremely thorough and takes the time to explain all of his findings. Greg provides a complete inspection report with detailed pictures and notes. His prices are great and his work is exemplary. I will continue to recommend him to all of my clients.

Brooke was someone who knew what he was doing. We were buying a home in Plano Texas and really needed someone who could come in a give an honest opinion. He took the time to actually explain things which others dont. The thing which stood out was he has been doing it for a while now and this experience showed by the way the was explaining it and helping us with his personal judgement. Thing with inspections is you wanna make sure you get your money worth and I would recommend him and his company.

Top Tier did an amazing job. We had another inspector that our agent recommended, but he wanted us to wait over a week before he could get to us. We found Top Tier Inspection on Facebook and had an appointment set the next day. Our agent now uses Top Tier for her recommendations because of how quick they are able to get to the clients! Thanks Top Tier for excellent work on a last minute request!

Angela Galloway from Optimum Engineering performed a foundation inspection due to possible shifting of house. This took approximately 3 hours to do a thorough evaluation. i was impressed with the amount of detail in Angela"s inspection and her ability to explain the findings in such a manner that I understood without having to as a lot of questions. My experience with this inspector was very good and therefore, I have no recommendations for improvement. In the future should anyone need this type of service, I will definitely recommend your company and this inspector.

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.
