Yes and no. Yes, because they can give you ideas on what you could do. Having knowledge of repairs is a great benefit. However, in my opinion, you do not want him to aide in repairs. It could possibly be a conflict of interest if your home inspector is also the one who is doing the repairs. The job of a home inspectors is to check for safety and function. If he will also be doing the repairs he may find additional things that do not necessarily need repairing or not want to do the repairs so doesn’t disclose the issue. Which, could cause more extensive and expensive problems down the road. Our general rule is to recommend a couple of people who would do a great job. We are in a referral program for that reason. We have a network of people full of integrity, nice and honest and who are could aide in repairs.
