Excellent Pre-sale Inspection

We would highly recommend the services of Home-Inspectors. This is the third inspection we have had of properties in the last 34 years and it was hands down the most professional and comprehensive. Paul’s 40 years in the business have allowed him to develop excellent technical skills and the structural knowledge necessary to give home owners and prospective buyers a solid assessment of the condition of homes and suggestions for necessary remediations. If we decide to purchase another home, our first call will be to Home-Inspectors. Thanks Paul!

Professional and Thorough

Fantastic service from top to bottom. Mr. Wilson and his assistant took their time, answered all our questions, and provided a detailed report. We were so impressed with the first inspection of our new home, we had them back to inspect our home again prior to submitting our 1-year list to the builder. Highly recommended!

New home inspection

Paul and Connor were professional, punctual and thorough. We were very pleased to have them take a long, critical look at a property we were looking to purchase and would hire them again.

30 Day Tarion Home Inspection

I had Paul come to my house to conduct a 30 day new home Tarion inspection. He arrived on time and came with an assistant. They did a thorough inspection, answer numerous questions, and in general were very helpful. Very happy with the service.

Home pre-Listing Inspection

We have an older home built in 1977 and wanted a pre-listing inspection to identify potential problems. Paul came and with his assistant did a thorough job. He found several problems and put them into context for us to prioritize and where needed recommended potential contractors to work with. Paul is easy to talk to and answered all of our questions.
We were pleased with his work and recommend his services to other homeowners.

Pre-Listing Home Inspections provide current owners with an accurate state of their home in order that they are aware of any deficiencies that may hinder them from receiving the maximum sale price for their home. Based on our inspection clients can either repair the deficiencies or price their home accordingly when it comes time to sell. Glad to hear that we were of assistance in helping you identify the current deficiencies and remedial courses of action required in order to maximize your return on your home when it is listed.
With thanks and all the best in selling your home.

Thorough inspection

We used Home Inspectors to inspect a new townhome and to help us prepare our 30-Day Tarion list. He identified a number of issues we could not have identified ourselves. All issues were noted in a well organized binder, and a series of photos were provided to document the overall state of the home.

Home Inspectors were punctual, professional, very knowledgeable, and thorough in the inspection. Everything was explained everything to us in plain language.

Home Inspectors also provided guidance for issues to watch for at various stages during the construction of the home. He promptly responded to all our emailed questions, and provided helpful information.

We intend to call on his services again as we prepare for our year-end Tarion submission. Very happy with the service received.

Detailed, Conscientious, and Considerate Inspector

Paul and Connor are fantastic home inspectors. I've had him inspect homes for my fiancee and I in the last few months and I've learned valuable lessons from their experience and insight.

Paul stopped us from buying 2 houses with foundation moisture/crack issues, and based on their experience they could tell us fairly confidently that the weeping tile would have needed to be replaced soon, a $50,000 + cost for the houses we were looking at.

Regardless of the outcomes of the inspections themselves, Paul and Connor have taught me valuable lessons about codes/best practices on windows, proper grading, roofing, and non-structural repair work that I know I'll use for years down the road in our new house. They also have great tips for assessing primary inspection points quickly, so I can have a rough gauge of house conditions during viewings before even ordering a full inspection.

Paul is THE home inspector in the Ottawa region for anyone who really cares about buying and keeping a home in proper condition. They might charge a little more than others, but this is a tiny cost in comparison to the quality and experience they offer, and what you can learn along the way.

All reviews giving poor ratings either made a mistake (wrong inspector or bogus review) or probably shouldn't be buying a house for themselves if they don't want to take proper care of it.

home inspection services

I used Paul Wilson home inspection services several times.
He either helped to find out serious problems, or I can use his inspection report as a bargain power. I are very pleased with their thoroughness and professionalism.

Home inspection

We were in the market to buy a house and chose Paul Wilson as our inspector. The first home he inspected for us turned out it would of cost us a lot of money and head aches if we were to have went threw with the sale. Due to Paul's extensive knowledge he pointed out some serious issues on the home. We decided not to go threw with buying that home. Let me tell you we could not be happier to have had him there he saved us from buying a lemon of a house. Paul was very thorough during the entire inspection and explained every single detail to us. We decided to use Paul again for our second home inspection. Turned out the second home was in much better condition then the first and we can now move on feeling confident with our decision on purchasing our future home. We would strongly recommend Paul to anyone looking to get a thorough and honest home inspection. We thank you very much Paul for your time and detailed inspections. We have learned some valuable information from your inspections.

Thank you
Rob and Roxanne

Glad that we were of assistance in helping you make an informed decision to walk away from the first one, as several structural, mechanical, plumbing, electrical and health issues were evident.
