Inspections for Homes & Commercial Buildings

At Thomas Home Inspections, we’ve been helping buyers, sellers, owners, and businesses with their building inspection needs for more than 20 years. Our dedicated inspector uses some of the industry’s best tools to provide highly accurate results, including: 

Thermal Imaging Camera home inspection service

Thermal Imaging

Even with 38+ years working in construction and 20+ years in the home inspection industry, our inspector can’t see through walls. That’s why he uses thermal imaging to look for missing insulation, leaks, hot spots, and areas with energy loss.

Gas Meter Detector home inspection service

Gas Leak Detector

Small gas leaks from gas-powered appliances can go unnoticed for an extended period of time. To protect you and your family, we use a gas leak detector to find leaks before you can smell them. 

We happily inspect a diverse list of residential and commercial buildings, including houses of any value, apartments, townhomes, condominiums, light commercial buildings, and heavy commercial buildings.

Pre-Listing / Seller’s Inspection

Before you put your home on the market, turn to us to learn its true condition. Our Pre-Listing/Seller’s Inspection service can save you a lot of time and energy by preparing you for everything a buyer’s inspector will see. You’ll also gain the opportunity to make any repairs that could increase the value of your home. As an added bonus, being able to accurately discuss your home’s condition will boost buyer confidence!

Home Maintenance Inspection

Getting a home inspection before buying a house is a standard practice. But what happens after you take possession of the property? Most people don’t consider the importance of continual inspections. However, scheduling regular Home Maintenance Inspections is in your best interests as this will help keep your home in good shape. We’re pleased to provide this inspection service to homeowners in NW Pennsylvania.   


After your initial inspection, you’re virtually certain to create a home repair addendum containing the items you want the owner to fix before you close the deal. Once you receive the word that those repairs have been completed, it’s time to make sure everything went according to plan by scheduling a Re-Inspection. This service is your last chance to protect yourself against taking on the financial responsibility of any serious issues in the home. We will inspect the house again and report back on the condition of every promised repair.

Radon Testing  

Radon is a potentially deadly substance that can’t be detected without a test. In fact, radon exposure is responsible for approximately 22,000 deaths each year in the U.S. alone. Per the EPA, every county in NW Pennsylvania has an elevated risk of excessive radon. We offer Radon Testing as an add-on to any inspection service to help you protect your family’s health.

Feel free to call with any questions

Water Testing  

Have you considered whether or not the water at your new home is safe for drinking, cooking, and bathing? We offer Water Testing services that meet the testing requirements of the VA, FHA, and USDA. We will collect water samples and have them professionally lab-tested for a variety of pathogens and bacteria. After which, you’ll receive a report detailing any issues in your water supply. This test is especially crucial for any buyers moving into a home with well water.

Well Flow & Pressure Testing   

When there’s well water on your property, you need to verify that the water isn’t contaminated and that it has the proper flow and pressure. During this add-on service, we will check the flow and pressure coming from your well. If there are any issues, you’ll be able to get them professionally repaired before they cause further problems.

Septic Dye Testing   

Having an overly full septic system is one of many expensive issues that buyers may have to face. Scheduling a Septic Dye Testing inspection service makes it easy to find out if the septic system can handle normal usage. During this test, septic dye will be introduced into the septic system. We will then inspect the leach field to determine if the system passes this critical test or if it needs servicing.
