Home Inspection

John did a great job inspecting a home we were buying. He was thorough and did a great job explaining what he was looking at and highlighting must address issues vs. issues which should be addressed longer term. In addition to being professional, he was also personable. I really appreciated that immediately after the inspection he gave a 1-page summary of his findings so we would have them prior to receiving his full report later that day.

Very Professional!!!

Thank you John for such a thorough inspection!
John took the time to explain everything in detail and made suggestions on some easy fixes as we went through the house. We can’t believe how much he covered, so many things we would not have been aware of. We never felt rushed and there were lots of opportunities to ask questions. We received the report from John the same day, it was very clear and contained explanations and photographs. We would highly recommend John and Welcome Home Inspections to anyone looking for this service. The knowledge we gained from John’s expertise helped us decide how to proceed with our offer.
Thanks again John!

Home Inspection

I have used John twice now for home inspections and he continues to impress. He even gave me a discount for being a repeat customer. I am a very pleased with John's meticulous nature, perfect for the job that he completes. He was able to find some plumbing issues in the attic that paid for his service and hopefully I won't have to worry about a wet ceiling now when I move in. Thanks John for taking your time, explaining what you are seeing and being very knowledgeable with the particulars of various homes.

Missed major damages and chemical spills

In regards to major problems and damages, this was the worst inspection I have encountered. Lost tens of thousands of dollars due to missed, obvious, problems that were identified afterwards. I would never use this company again nor would I recommend it to anyone else.

Since this reviewer has chosen to remain anonymous it is not possible to respond to this review. We have not been contacted by any past clients regarding issues of this nature. We do not know if this is a legitimate client or valid inspection complaint.
We strive to provide a thorough, detailed report on the property being inspected and present it in a clear, concise and professional manner. Our inspection process is the same for every inspection and no one works harder for their clients.

Home Inspection

The company travelled approximately two hours away in order to perform an inspection on what I consider my "forever" home. They were very thorough, and spent several hours going through the house from top to bottom, answering all questions that were posed. He was very congenial, professional & accommodating. I highly recommend this company to anyone & everyone!

Home inspection

The housing market in Guelph is insane, I refused to purchase a house without an inspection. John was incredible, available on short notice, extremely knowledgeable, answered all of our questions. I can't say enough about him. Would definitely use him again, and will recommend him to others.

Thanks Ryan,
We appreciate your comments. Yes,the market is "hot" making it difficult for many buyers. We agree that that opting out of conducting a home inspection could be a mistake when you are making the largest investment of your life.
Congratulations on your new home. We wish you every success in the future.

Jenna and I would like to thank you for your very helpful and informative inspection yesterday. We were very impressed with your thoroughness and professionalism throughout. We will most certainly pass along your name to anyone else looking to have an inspection done.

Fantastic!!!

John was great! He was so thorough- he answered all our questions and made me feel very comfortable and assured that I was buying a good house.
Purchasing a house is the biggest thing you can do - John is the inspector you want to make sure you know what is going on (good and bad) with the house before you sign! Highly recommend!!!

1st time buyer Home Inspection

I learned early on that an easy way to determine if somebody knows what they're talking about is in the way they answer questions. If somebody really knows their stuff they can answer any question in very short and easy to understand terms. John very obviously knows his houses, had very clear answers to all of our questions along the way and made the anxiety of the inspection melt away quite quickly. He made us feel very relaxed and confident about this major purchase we have made, and I would highly recommend Welcome Home for anyone's inspection. Thanks again John!
