Facebook Review from Kevin Paul. Mike arrived on time, went straight to work evaluating and documenting everything....he truly reviewed everything in this property as if he was doing a review for his own family. He was responsive to questions and input from our realtor, yet remained focused on inspecting the condo unit to give his best recommendations on anything that needed our attention as we determined whether to buy. A well-written, comprehensive report reflected not only his thoroughness but his professionalism and expertise in completing a most thorough review of all aspects of our prospective purchase. We strongly appreciate the Michael J Turner Home Inspection staff and process and reporting! Include a brief testimonial or reference to positive reviews.
Google Review by Brandon Lemoine. Mike is awesome. He has performed two inspections for me personally and does excellent work. He is very knowledgeable, thorough, and dependable. He was always prompt in regard to arriving at a property as well as submitting the inspection report. I arrived at each home early to find Mike already working on the roof. Each report was in my hands in less than 24 hours. They are impressively meticulous and highly informative. I appreciate his easy-to-understand explanations, and his advice on each issue is truly valuable. Mike is honest, trustworthy, and a master at his craft. I highly recommend him to anyone in search of a home inspector. You can be assured that he will provide outstanding service and you can rest easy knowing that you have hired the right person to do the job.

Not All Home Inspectors Are Created Equal – Experience Matters!
When it comes to purchasing or selling a property, a comprehensive home inspection is a non-negotiable step in the process. The quality of this inspection, however, is heavily dependent on the inspector's expertise and dedication. At MJTHI, we understand the significance of this investment and strive to provide a level of service that stands above the rest.
Experience and Expertise:
The difference between a licensed home inspector with 1-5 years of experience and one with a decade or more is profound. Additional contractors' licenses and certifications, as held by our inspectors, further enhance the value we bring to the table.
From structural integrity to electrical systems, roofing, HVAC, and plumbing, our qualified inspectors leave no stone unturned. Through years of hands-on training and experience, we've honed our ability to uncover potential issues and hidden problems within a property.
Documentation for Informed Decisions:
Our comprehensive inspection includes a detailed report that is easy to understand. This documentation empowers you to make informed decisions about negotiations, repairs, or adjustments to the property's price, safeguarding you from unexpected expenses down the line.
For sellers, a pre-listing inspection is a strategic move. It provides an opportunity to address issues before listing, increasing your property's marketability and potentially maximizing its value. This is especially crucial, as standard appraisals may not consider necessary repairs or maintenance needs, impacting the perceived value.
Proactive Maintenance Planning:
Beyond transactions, a comprehensive home inspection helps homeowners prioritize maintenance and plan for future upgrades. Understanding the current condition of the property allows for proactive measures, preventing potential problems from escalating into costly repairs.
Transparent and Assuring:
In essence, a comprehensive home inspection offers transparency and assurance. It prevents post-purchase or sale surprises, empowers homeowners with knowledge about their property, and is an essential step towards sound real estate decisions.
Invest in peace of mind and knowledge – choose MJTHI for an accurate, detailed, and reliable home inspection. Your property deserves nothing less.

When it comes to purchasing a home, one of the most important steps is getting a qualified and thorough inspector!
In this section, we will explore the factors that contribute to the cost of a home inspection fee, helping you understand why these variations exist and what you should consider when selecting a home inspector. By gaining insight into these factors, you can make a decision and ensure that your investment in a home inspection is both worthwhile and cost-effective.
Square Footage affects the price! The larger the home, the more time is needed to inspect all the components on the property and to type the report. Adding photos with comments will take even more time. I can spend upwards of 3-4 hours typing the report with 2 hours inspecting the home. An average-sized home inspection from start to finish usually takes me about 5-6 hours. This is why we only perform (2) inspections per day! That’s a 12-hour day when doing two home inspections.
Raised Homes / Crawl Spaces
A raised home is unique in that another space under the house is provided. This requires additional time and a lot of experience. Most crawlspaces have very little head clearance which is one of the most critical foundation and structural components that needs to be inspected. This requires a well-trained eye and years of experience in the construction industry. It also usually requires personal protective equipment to be worn to safely inspect this area.
As a home age, it usually has more problems… (Do-it-yourself repairs are a common find). Older homes normally have older equipment, appliances, roofing, framing, electrical, and more…it is usually related to neglect or as we call it “deferred maintenance”. These items can stack up quickly and require more time to inspect and type the deficiencies in the report. Note: Many of the renovated homes usually have new floors, new cabinets, and a lot of caulk and paint. They rarely replace the important and most expensive components in a home like all new electrical wiring, a new roof, new air conditioning and heating, new plumbing drains, and water lines.
Multiple HVACs and Water Heaters
As with any inspection, adding more equipment requires more time to inspect and more time to type the report. Most fees are based on square footage and then additional fees would apply for an extra AC system or water heaters.
Further evaluation is a term used by many home inspectors that requires the attention of a qualified licensed contractor or specialized professional. This means the inspector pointed something out to be unsafe or in need of repair.
Further evaluation by a licensed contractor is very different than inspecting a home. While a home inspection may take 2-3 hours to visually inspect all the many components of a residence. A contractor could potentially spend this much time evaluating 1 or 2 components. Licensed contractors are the ones who would be doing the work and providing you with a cost estimate. Most licensed contractors will use specialized tools to evaluate the condition. For example, the home inspector may say the AC is not cooling. Further evaluation is recommended by a licensed HVAC contractor. At this time, the contractor will use refrigerant gauges, temperature probes, take apart the system and determine the cause of the problem and deliver a repair cost to fix the problem.
Achieving superior performance as a home inspector is neither for the faint of heart nor for the impatient. The development of genuine expertise requires years of struggle, sacrifice, and often painful self-assessment. There are no shortcuts to providing your customer with the very best inspection money can buy! It will take at least a decade to achieve expertise, with a lot of your time and a large sum of money invested in education, training, certifications, licenses, experience, tools, specialized equipment, and knowledge.
