Home Inspections

I was recommended to use All Seasons Home Inspections by my realtor who spoke very highly of John. I was not disappointed - his reports are thorough, detailed and easy to understand. He will answer any amount of questions you have and you can tell he has a true passion for his career. He gave me his honest opinion on an aged house I was about to buy and I ended up choosing a different house with less issues. This guy is the real deal and his inspections are worth every penny. I recommend him to all my family and friends.

Pre-sale home inspection

This was my first time using a home inspector before selling my 100 year old semi-detached house in the Greenwood and Gerrard area.
John personally answered my phone call and spent 15 min explaining how home inspections work. I made an appointment for 2 days later.
Very pleasant, and loves to talk about homes.

Pros
He spent 4 hours carefully examining all home systems interior, exterior and even went onto the roof.
He gave suggestions on what needed to be fixed, which items could wait and shared his wealth of knowledge.
Extremely detailed report about 20 pages which gave specific price ranges to repair and the current state of the home.

Cons
No company website after 21 hears in business. He says he is working on one.

Home Inspection

I am Realtor based in Toronto and have used All Seasons Home Inspections for many years. John Tackaberry is the consummate professional. He is very knowledgeable, thorough and prompt. John takes the time to answer any questions or concerns. The inspection report is presented in a clear and detailed manner. As I do with all my clients, I would highly recommend John to anyone looking for a home inspection.

I have used John three times now

I have used John Tackaberry three times now over 10 years. The first time was based on a realtor recommendation when I was buying. As I have health concerns and a small reno budget I asked the realtor for a tough inspector. He recommended All Seasons and John caught many flaws in that first house. I did not buy it. Then I used him for the one I did end up purchasing and his great checklist made me feel comfortable enough to buy. I used his checklist, with the suggested repair costs, to complete all of the repairs as soon as I moved in. Fast forward to April 2017 and I am selling this same house to move farther away and I am using John for my pre-sale home inspector before I list so he will be just as thorough for the potential buyers. I only hope the new house I buy is close enough for him to do that inspection as well.

Thorough, no BS inspector

When we were looking for a house to buy, I would read the seller's home inspections. Most of them spent pages and pages saying virtually nothing, mixing advertisements for their services with their assessment of the house. One inspector stood out: John at All Seasons Home Inspection. I knew that's who I wanted to inspect any house we were serious about buying.

Luckily, when we did find a house, John was available on very short notice. As I was hoping, he conducted a thorough assessment that is helping us decide what repairs we want to concentrate on. He also reassured us about several things we were worried about. I recommend him without hesitation.

Pre-Sale Home Inspection

I hired John as his reputation is well known in East York by buyers and agents as providing a thorough and responsible home inspection. And I got what I expected. His reports are objective, detailed and easy to read. He lists repairs needed, recommended and also assigns costs to them. When you read his report, you can rest assured you have the best possible idea of the shortcomings of the home you are buying or selling (within the limitations presented by being a non-invasive inspection).

Pre-sale home inspection

This is the second time that we have called upon John to inspect a house. We hired him this time to do a pre-sale inspection of our current home. John was thorough and fair. He charges a little more than the competition but the completeness of his report is well worth it. He will go through each item on the report with you as well as with prospective buyers as part of the inspection itself.

Home Inspection

I was recently looking to make my first real estate purchase and was quite satisfied with the service provided. The inspector could see that I was not understanding everything that was being shared and made it simple and easy for me to understand. Ultimately, I opted to not buy the house as it required too much to fix it up, but glad that I spent the $400 instead of how much more it would've cost me to make the repairs.

Home Inspection

My husband and I made a very expensive mistake buying our first house without a house inspection. We moved at the end of April this year and have noticed many uncomfortable flaws around the house. So we decided to have a house inspection with John on September 20th, 2011. He listened to our concerns and went through the house with us. He explained whenever he found some issues and suggested recommendations what we need to do. He was extremely thorough and patient. For instance, although we were told from our previous owners that the furnace was maintained every year, John indicated that our furnace had a problem and suggested us to call for a service immediately. We contacted the service and learnt that our heat exchanger was cracked and that we had a serious health risk due to high Carbon Monoxide exposure. The furnace was shut down by the service on the same day. We also were told from our realtor and previous owners that our electrical was updated and had no problem, but John suggested otherwise. John also indicated few other problems in the house that we might not have noticed by ourselves. He provided us how to tackle the problems in what order. Because of John, we are able to adjust our priorities in our house renovation. My husband and I know that we made a mistake by not doing a house inspection prior to the purchase. But John helped us identifying the problems for us and gave us right direction to fix the problems. We highly recommend John to anyone who thinks to purchase a house.
