Very Thorough

I was very pleased with the service that Home Inspections 4 U provided. Yuri was very thorough, explained everything to me, and answered all of my questions. As a first time home buyer, my mind was eased after Yuri's inspection and detailed report. I definitely recommend Home Inspections 4 U, they are professional and thorough, and it was an educational experience!

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.

Thorough and meticulous

Yuri recently completed a home inspection for us. I am a realtor and have recommended his services often for my clients, however this was the first time that I had actually used his services for my own purchase. He has always been thorough and meticulous. He is always focussed on the job and provided a detailed digital report that included his notes and photographs. Thanks again!

Home Inspection Professional and Serious

An honest and professional home inspection. Straightforward and very knowledgeable. Was excellent to work with and highly recommended. Showed up on time and explained what his roll in the home buying process is and how he will provide all the facts on the building and construction of the home. A true profesional company.

Home Inspection Save

Very professional and concise, Yuri was very prompt and started the home inspection before we even got there but upon arrival he showed us all the things he found out about the house and gave us recommendations pointing us to the right people for the job. he found all the things problematic about the house and gave us a rough understanding of what we are getting. all in all saved us a lot of money down the road.

Very thorough inspection done by Yuri. He was available, timely and professional. A little bit on the expensive side but well worth the cost.

Sabina, thank you so much for the review and for the highest rating. And you are absolutely correct - I charge higher fees than other inspectors exactly for the reason that you mentioned - professionalism. I'm a great believer that professionals should charge a professional fee, especially in unregulated industry, like home inspection, where you always get what you paid for. I'm glad to hear that you received the best of the best. Thank you for choosing Home Inspections 4U!

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.
