Inspection / Review of Home

Pierre Lacombe did a wonderful job for us. We found his comments both accurate and on point. He appreciated the issues at hand and took the time to explain things in a way we could understand. He not only discussed the matters that were more or less self-evident to the trained and experienced home inspector, but also extrapolated on that which was not obvious, to identify likely important issues based on observed facts. He gave us his opinion, and not just a list of observations. I have recommended him to a friend for his home purchase inspection and we would not hesitate to us his services again.

Home Inspection

Pierre and Mark were thorough and diligent. They saved us from the prototypical "lipstick on a pig" in Coquitlam, showing us many issues that we as first-time homebuyers wouldn't have seen. Predictably, the realtors' downplayed the findings but MHI did a standup job and went to bat for the little guy. For the house that we did end up buying, Pierre and Mark found a ton of issues and their exhaustive report has formed the basis of a gigantic TODO list that we are slowly working through. Very knowledgeable, excellent evidence-based findings and a friendly inclination to dispense practical advice are what makes these blokes very valuable, in my humble opinion.

Home Inspection

Pierre was recommended to me by a family member as a top-notch inspector. We were looking to buy our first home, and we're so glad that we hired Pierre because he saved us from a total lemon! There were major issues throughout the property that Pierre pointed out, explaining why they were issues, how they needed to be fixed and his thought on costs. Thanks to him, we avoided a property that would have cost us around $15,000 to fix!

Home Inspection

I recently sold my condo and looked back on some of the documentation I had from when I purchased it few years back. I reviewed Pierre's original home inspection and realized that everything that was mentioned on his home inspection not only came true, but was also mentioned in the depreciation report our strata had gotten from an engineering firm. I was absolutely amazed at the accuracy and reliability of his inspection and assessment. Definitely gave him a call to inspect our next place. I would highly recommend!

Home inspection

This is my second home inspection with Metro and they have found many issues that other inspectors have missed. They are fantastic. Their reports are thorough and concise. He walked through the house and ensured I understood every issue.

HOME INSPECTION

This inspection company is highly recommended by my co-worker. I was in an urgent and decided to give a try. I don't regret a penny. The inspector is competent, thorough and knowledgeable. We did a lot of repair and revamp as per the recommendation. I will definitely go back again.

Pierre Lacombe arrived early for the inspection, he was extremely thorough, he provided detailed notes about problem areas in the home, and was the epitome of professional and high quality.

We used Metro Home Insepctions 3 times and we were satisifed every time. The reports were very easy to understand. We also hired Pierre as a consultant for our townhouse complex with great results.

Condo Inspection

Competent, thorough, comprehensive, knowledgeable and professional. Those words describing Pierre seem, somehow, inadequate. Pierre's company was highly recommended to me by a colleague practicing in the building industry.

I met with Pierre to inspect the condo unit where my daughter had put in an offer. While I am not a technical expert in this field, my technical background and experience as a do-it-yourself homeowner had me concerned about some issues. Pierre not only confirmed my suspicions but identified other important factors that clearly demonstrated his deep understanding and extensive experience in the construction industry. He was able to point out a number of telltale signs indicating issues and backed up his observations with an impressive knowledge of building codes and construction practices. Even more impressive was the thoroughness of his inspection leaving virtually no aspect unreviewed.

Pierre's evaluation is straight-up. It is not sugar-coated and he tells it like it is. Home inspection is a difficult thing to do well. It is important to choose someone who is experienced in building design and construction. I highly recommend Pierre, a professional engineer who demonstrates competence and provides an excellent service at a very fair price.

I cannot recommend Pierre more highly.

Home Inspection

You think Mike Holmes is good? These guys are better and don't need to tear down walls to see issues. Pierre and Mark saved us over $100,000 on a new home purchase - moisture/leaking issues everywhere. Quite simply, they work for YOU and not the realtor or strata. We went into the home inspection not expecting to find anything. Both Pierre and Mark within the first 15 minutes, showed us major areas of concern that would take a LOT of money to fix.

These guys are WELL worth the money and are exceptionally experienced; they take practical, methodical and a scientific approach to the inspection. Check out their website to see the resumes - these are highly talented guys and are well worth the price AND more. We can't be happier (I'm sure our review shows that).
