Home Inspection

We were very impressed with Yuri during the inspection of our new home. He was very deliberate in his approach to his inspection and clearly explained each step in the process. His meticulous review provided us with a high degree of confidence in the condition of the property. We would definitely recommend him to other potential buyers.

Home Inspection

I was very happy with Yuri’s attention to detail. He provided a very thorough inspection and took the time to answer my questions at the site and after. He is also a top notch communicator, answering my phone calls promptly and making sure that I got his report and was able to open it. I also got him to do the infrared camera inspection to help determine what is behind the drywall. I wanted to reduce the inevitable ’surprises’ that are bound to come up once I move into my new ‘old’ home. Thank you Yuri, you were a pleasure to work with!

Excellent Experience Working with Yuri

Yuri is an excellent inspector, very knowledgeable and professional.

This is the second time we work with him, both times he spent time looking into every details and explain to us at the same time. Each inspection took around 3 hours to complete. When we have any questions, he is willing to answer and provide us various solutions.

He provided us the final report within short time (same day or next day morning). The report was very detailed, about 54 pages long together with a lot of pictures. In addition, he follows up with us if we have any questions.

Overall, we had great experience working with Yuri, and will work with him again for future housing purchase. We also got 5% discount as a returned customer.

Thank you Yu for the raving review and for the highest rating. It was a pleasure to meet your lovely family and conduct a quality home inspection for you. We are not the cheapest company but we are the most detailed and thorough. You pay a little more to us than other inspectors for your education and our knowledge and experience. We get lots of referrals from Realtors but regardless of the source of referral we always work for you, our client, and always provide you with an honest unbiased professional service. I wish you all the very best in your new home and thank you for choosing Home Inspections 4U!

Inspction at 1166 Bay street, app. 1503

Per our request the home inspection was performed at 1166 Bay Street on February 15teen, 2019.
The report was very detailed, clear and simple to understand. The Inspector addressed and explained every item of concern and provided the recommendation for the possible solution. All our questions have been answered and clarified. His patience, professional expertise and attention to detail is second to none. His report has helped us to make the decision regarding the purchase of the above mentioned property. We will recommend his services without hesitation.

New home inspection

Being our first home, this was our first home inspection. Our real estate agent recommended Yuri from Inspections 4 U. Not knowing anything about the industry, we trusted our agent's recommendation.

Yuri was fantastic. He was on time (early actually) and got to work right away. Before arriving onsite, Yuri recommended that at least 1 of the buyers be on-site so we could ask questions and discuss his findings as he went along. This turned out to be great advice as it allowed us to have a dialog about the different things he was finding. At the end of the inspection (it took about 3 hours for a bungalow), we de-briefed about the major findings. Later that night we received the full report and were able to make a decision about our purchase.

All in all it was an excellent experience. Yuri is experienced, detailed, and is always available for questions. I would highly recommend using Yuri to anyone interested in a home inspection.

Excellent thorough home inspection

I just bought my first house, and I hired Yuri to do the home inspection. He was excellent and thorough. Given that it was my first home purchase, he took time to explain every aspect of the home inspection to me, the nuances of what I needed to look out for, what maintenance work had to be done to the house, etc. I always felt he had my best interest at heart. He was patient and very professional. I highly recommend him, particularly for first home buyers like myself.

Fantastic Service

We opted to do the extended inspection and didn't regret it as it's an investment in our new home. Service was great, everything was explained as the inspection was progressing. The report after was delivered at the time agreed upon and was very detailed. Will go to my trusted contractors pile and would use again without question.

Tips for selecting a good home inspector from the article in Toronto Star:

Do your homework: Ask savvy people for recommendations and settle on an inspector before getting caught up in the stress of buying or selling. Inspectors should have serious experience in the building trades, errors and omissions insurance, and, at the very least, Registered Home Inspector, National Certificate Holder or Certified Master Inspector credentials.

It's no warranty: Some have sued successfully when inspectors have been wildly inaccurate about a home's structure and mechanicals, and the costs of necessary repairs. But inspectors can't break holes in walls or peel shingles and siding from a house. A report is an analysis based on a largely visual examination. Read the contract carefully.

Who works for whom? Buyers should be wary of reports done for vendors and vice-versa. Inspectors should be impartial third parties, but it's an unregulated business. Some may be willing to sacrifice objectivity to help a sale. Some may have inappropriately close relationships with real-estate agents.

The big stuff: Demand a clear statement on the foundation and structural integrity and estimates of repair costs. Attic mould, signs of basement leakage, substandard wiring or insulation materials such as vermiculite, asbestos and urea formaldehyde can disqualify you from a mortgage or insurance. How long till the house needs a new roof, furnace or windows? Find out what costs to deduct from an offer.

Seller beware: Having your home inspected before listing it can head off untimely surprises. It can let you be up front with buyers or enable you to seek good contractors to get the work done at a fair price. Pre-listing inspections can also help vendors rebut dubious claims from buyers' inspectors.

The bottom line: A typical home should take two to three hours to inspect, covering 400 checks, and cost in the $400 to $600 range. Be leery of an inspector who offers discounts or to fix problems he finds.

Only those inspectors, who charge a professional fee, do a real professional job. Everyone else is looking around.
