I discovered Joe and his company through Homestars. He performed a home inspection for me in Hamilton. Joe knows the Hamilton area pretty well.
I believe the person in the previous review hit the nail on the head on all accounts. Joe was very punctual, showing up earlier than me to perform an initial review of the exterior. During the inspection, Joe would bring all concerns and insights to my attention. He also used an assortment of high tech tools, such as a camera mounted on a mast that allowed him to view the shingles without even venturing up onto the roof. I found his inspection to be quite thorough; he was able to spot a large gaping hole in the attic floor. Phew! He's a polite,intelligent and articulate individual.
At the end of the inspection he provided me a verbal review along with a company binder. A soft copy report was emailed to me within 2 hours - excellent!
Please keep in mind that Joe is only one of 35 certified home inspectors in Ontario. He's not a run of the mill inspector, he's paid his dues through plenty of schooling and seminars.
An awesome inspection done at a very reasobale price - $425.
