Tony did some electrical work in my house. He was responsive to my communication and did the job exactly when he said he would. (Those 2 points alone puts him ahead of most contractors). I'm content with the quality of work. Tony also pointed out bad wiring work in my panel that even my home inspector missed. He worked with me to remediate that issue as well. My only negative would be that total price kept creeping up from the original quote. With that being said, I was in the loop the entire time. The decision was ultimately mine for him to continue or not. I would recommend him.

David came quickly for 1/2 price of others and quickly went thru a dead thermostat issue moving all the way to a simple solution that the break box had not been reset properly by the home inspector. Great job

Mike is a life saver. I have a 5 month old baby, 13 year old daughter and a disabled mother so when I found out we had bed bugs I was mortified. Mike was great! He came and did a thorough inspection of our three level townhome. The price was competitive and reasonable for our salaries especially at the time of an emergency. He was patient with us and answered all of our endless questions and was willing to come over at short notice. I truly appreciate all he has done for us.

Our home inspection with Patrick was better than I could've imagined. Patrick was punctual and started working right away. He was extremely thorough, knowledgeable, and helpful (answered all of our questions and taught us a few things). On top of that, he was very personable and engaging. We learned a lot about every aspect of the house. He even brought a ladder, so that he could go up to the attic. A thorough report was emailed to me later that day. I wish all home inspections were like this!

Ken was great from start to finish. He took the time to talk with me before the inspection and let me know what to expect. Then, he set up an exact appointment (no four-hour window!) and worked with my schedule so I could avoid taking off too much time from work. He was on time to our place and was professional and polite, explaining more about his process and thoroughly checking out the problem. Throughout, he was excellent in his kindness, understanding, and communication. We agreed to two indoor air samples, in addition to the outside control sample. (He even talked us out of another sample as unnecessary!) Best of all, he was very calm and reassuring with my girlfriend, who was highly upset due to her asthma being seriously aggravated by the problem. As he promised, the lab results came back the next day (bad problem), and he had his full report to us the following day. It included an excellent, comprehensive protocol for selecting and hiring a remediation service. Having been through a mold situation three times in three separate places now, I can tell you firsthand how absolutely important it is to get an independent inspector/tester like Unbiased Mold Inspection, which does not do any remediation or anything else. A LOT of companies do it all, which can make their intentions suspect. With Ken and his company, you know you're getting an objective opinion from someone who's not trying to sell you more services.

Troy was great. He promptly called to set up an appointment to come out to do the inspection. He was polite and very respectful to us and our property. He explained in great detail what he would do for us and gave us definite prices up front. When we discovered we did not need everything in his total home inspection, he was very accommodating in coming up with a package that met our needs and gave us a price to match. I was impressed with him and his operation. He inspected the property and then took the time to sit down with us to explain everything he did and what it meant. Then, he followed it up with written reports, recommendations and photos that he took to support his conclusions. I would recommend Royal T Inspections with Troy Vogt to anyone who needs this service. .

When selling my home, the inspector found "possible mold" in our crawl space. I had 7 companies come out and look at the alleged issue and they all said that it was minimal and should not be difficult to fix. The estimates for six of the companies ranged from $1300-3700. AdvantaClean took care of the issue for $195. He was the most honest out of all of them and he can be trusted. This is a quality that was not evident in the others. Awesome company!

I had to organize Masonry work to be done on my house from out-of-state. Thomas was very responsive, and provided an estimate in a short-turn around. His estimate was exactly what my my home inspector guessed the work might cost so I hired them. They completed the project quickly and did a great job matching the mortar and brick to my existing brick work. Great job!

I am a realtor and my client needed a home inspector at the last minute because the one she selected cancelled. I contacted SafeSales. Mr. Cheek came and did an excellent job! He was professional and explained the homes major systems in layman's terms that my first time homeowner could understand. I have since referred Mr. Cheek to other clients who have been very satisfied. He makes me look good as a realtor and they have all thanked me for referring him.

Eugene and his crew were great. They renovated a portion of my retail space in just a couple weeks. Eugene was a great communicator and made sure to contact me with any questions, and always called or sent a picture on days when I wasn't around. He is free with his advice and was helpful in navigating a few snags, always with an eye to keeping costs down. Even one of our inspectors complimented him. I highly recommend RDRI for whatever renovations you need.

James did a great job not only in successfully accomplishing what he was supposed to, as a professional inspector, but also in helping me understand every part of "my new-house." He had been extremely responsive and supportive through out the entire process. He was also very honest about what he can and he can't do. I was also happy that I was present during the inspection, otherwise I wouldn't have benefited from his expertise. I never thought he would point out as many things as he did given that the condo was new. Now I have the bargaining power, through his help, to ask for the seller fixing the identified issues here and there prior to settling the purchase. I am sure I would have to pay a lot if I were to bypass them... He even arrived at the site earlier than I myself and was very punctual. He also made the report available with in less than 4 hours after the he completed the site inspection. Of course, I was also offered a competitive rate compared to other inspectors in DMV--which was the primary reason for me to choose him until I happened to have the first had experience of the customer delight. In general, I strongly recommend him for any one in search of a professional home inspection help.

We highly recommend the All American Home Inspections Team. Our Inspector booked our appointment the same day we requested service. The price was extremely affordable. The team was on time and did an outstanding job. They provided us with a comprehensive home inspection checklist prior to beginning. We are very pleased with the service.

    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.
