What Our Clients Say About Us
If I can give The Inspectors Company 10 stars, I would! As a realtor for over 17 yrs, I’ve worked with many home inspectors in the past that I did not continue to use. The Inspectors Company has exceeded my expectations every time. As my “Go-To” Inspectors they have always done a great job locating all the issues and expressing any concerns to my clients.- Melissa Gutierrez
Outstanding service! We purchased a new home and we had Eric come and inspect our home. They did an excellent job and informed us of issues that we previously didn’t know about which we used to negotiate the price on the home. Worth every penny! Highly recommended, they are experts in their field and really go above and beyond to provide a quality level of service.- Chris Nguyen
We recommend this company 100%. We had suffered leaks from the top of our 1st floor windows during rain events and no one; not roofers, stucco pros, window guys, or general contractors could determine the source. We had an inspection done by this company and within 20 minutes the inspector pointed out the problem. We took his advice and during the last 3 inch rainstorm not a single droplet of water visited us. Excellent results without big investments!- David Stearns
I am so happy with my inspection process. Miguel Diaz was able to walk through the inspection in Spanish for my Older Parents. He disclosed that there was some condensation around the kitchen sink pipes. He pointed out the problem areas and answered all of our questions. I will definitely refer them to my friends and family!- Amelia Pillado
I hired The Inspectors Company to perform a mold inspection at my house. Eric showed up on time. He was very personable and had a great attitude. He tested my kitchen and sure enough a couple days later I got the results and I did have mold. Not knowing what to do I called Eric again. He walked me through how to remediate the mold and what steps to take. These guys are great!- Andre Edwards
Awesome San Diego Home Inspectors! Eric and Miguel inspected the home I was buying in La Jolla. They performed a thermal imaging inspection and sewer line inspection along with the home inspection. They were both very respectful and the report was detailed and explained everything about the home.- Patrick Salvio

Frequently Asked Questions
Home inspections are not mandatory in California, even if you’re buying a home with a costly mortgage loan. However, you would be ill-advised to purchase a house without an inspection because the purpose of a home inspection is to reveal the condition of a home. A home inspection is useful for both parties in a house purchase: it protects the interests of the buyer and raises the odds of closing the transaction for the seller.
Because it is not legally required, prospective homeowners often ask themselves if a home inspection represents a worthwhile investment. Now most buyers assume that a home inspection is only useful if it reveals major defects with a home and stops you from making the mistake of purchasing it, but nothing could be further from the truth.
Considering the cost of a home and the fact that purchasing one is a once-in-a-lifetime decision for most people, home inspections are definitely worth it as they reveal the potential defects of a home, as well as the scope of repair works needed to resolve the issue. Whether or not you decide to proceed with the transaction nonetheless, a timely home inspection will safeguard you against uncertainty and help you prepare for the repairs that may be needed.
When we say home inspection, we are typically referring to the standard home inspection, also known as a 4 point home inspection which includes electrical, plumbing, HVAC and roofing. However, there are other specialized types of home inspection which have a narrow focus and inspect one aspect of a house in detail.
Some of them are:
- Structural inspection;
- Roof inspection;
- Electrical inspection;
- HVAC inspection;
- Septic tank inspection and sewer line inspection;
- Pool and spa inspection;
- Plumbing and water systems inspection;
- Mold inspection;
- and more!
As a reputable company with a long history in the industry, we can readily conduct a wide range of regular and specialized home inspections and provide a professional opinion without leaving room for uncertainty.
All the members of our team are certified, highly experienced industry veterans in whose expertise and dedication San Diego homeowners and real estate agents have full confidence. Schedule your home inspection appointment and become one of them!
A typical or standard home inspection will include the inspection of the following:
- Foundation, basement and structural components.
- Roof, attic, visible insulation;
- Interior plumbing & electrical;
- Heating & central air conditioning system;
- Walls, ceilings, floors, windows, doors.
Mold infestation is all too commonly undetected until it has widely spread, posing a considerable health risk. If there is any suspicion or doubt, you should contact us promptly to conduct a mold inspection. Mold inspection consists of the following:
- Taking a sample of the air in your home (spore trap) or the suspected surface (bulk, swab or tape sample),
- Performing sample testing and analysis to determine mold type.
But we can do more than identify the source of the problem. We can also help you take steps towards remediation. Since mold goes hand in hand with dampness, risks of material deterioration and structural damage are not to be taken lightly. Rest assured we will leave no stone unturned in the process of mold inspection and remediation in your future or current home.
A home inspection will normally take 2 to 3 hours. The duration depends mostly on the size of the house and property. It also depends on whether you are doing the standard 4 point home inspection (electrical, plumbing, HVAC and roofing) or a specialized inspection performed because of a specific issue which requires an in-depth approach. Other factors which may affect the duration of a home inspection include the inspection technique, accessibility, etc.
Technically speaking, a house cannot fail an inspection because a home inspection simply represents an examination of its current state. Still, the expression is frequently used in the context of home inspection services. If a house has failed a home inspection, it means that the home inspection report is fraught with negative items and that the home is need of major repairs or replacements, such as:
- Foundation issues;
- Roofing issues;
- Chimney damage;
- Electrical issues;
- Plumbing issues;
- Mold issues;
- Presence of asbestos;
- Termite damage;
- Issues with windows and/or doors.
Although it is not set in stone, the rule of thumb is that the buyer should pay for a home inspection. A buyer will typically schedule a buyer home inspection in order to make the final decision and finalize the purchase of a house.
A home inspection is typically conducted after the buyer has accepted an offer for a home. However, the seller may schedule a pre listing home inspection service so as to raise the appeal of their home to potential buyers. The cost of a home inspection will depend on factors such as house size and location.
You do not need to make any preparations for a home inspection. In fact, you are not even required to be present for the inspection. However, you should consider being there anyway as this is highly recommended, and not only if there is a serious issue to be wary of.
Being present during a home inspection will give you the opportunity to follow the home inspector closely and observe them at work. You may learn a thing or two about the condition of your prospective home and proper house maintenance even if you decide to forgo the purchase of a particular home.
