Home Inspection

I had Darren inspect my newly purchased 2.5 story property in Hamilton.
Darren is a polite and personable gentleman. I called him on short notice and he was nice enough to accommodate me into his schedule, even though I had to cancel on him on one occasion. Darren is quite knowledgeable with his craft, answering all of the inquiries I through at him. He was even able to pinpoint some knob and tube wiring. I especially like the fact that he knew the building history behind Hamilton's century homes. Some added advantages to using Darren: he provided the inspection report on the same day, with great colourful pictures, great detail, and a binder to boot; he's not another run of the mill inspector, he's actually certified and accredited by BBB and NACHI (he attended his inspector schooling at Mohawk) he accepts both credit and debit card mobile payments. Wow, this was super convenient.

Overall, an effective inspector who's a straight shooter, quite honest in his dealings with customers.

Thanks, Darren!

Good luck with your future inspections.

House Inspection

Amazing service and ultra professional. I wouldn't recommend anybody else. Was very impressed with how thorough Darren was. We spent over an hour just in our basement which was very important to us. And the report we received after was incredible and very helpful.

Darren was fantastic. Very thorough, his report was clear and to the point, the pictures were very helpful in explaining his assessment, and he took his time to make sure the paperwork was clear and understood. Overall, a pleasant and helpful experience.

Home inspection

I called Darren to do an urgent home inspection the next day (weekend) and he was very accommodating. He arrived even before the scheduled time and was very thorough in every single aspect that he was inspecting. He's very professional and is highly recommended. Sending me the full 23 page report with all the photographs of the problem areas in the house the very same night (Saturday at 11:00 pm) tells the whole story. I'd recommend him to everyone I know who needs a real house inspector.

Home Inspection

Darren was a pleasure to work with right from the start. He was very flexible with his scheduling and arrived on time. He explained everything to us before he started and answered all of our questions. He was full of helpful advice throughout the entire inspection and did a very thorough job. He was very personable and we enjoyed talking to him. The home inspection report was sent promptly and was clear and easy to understand. This has been our best experience with a home inspector and we will be using him for any future inspections for sure. We would definitely recommend him to our friends and family!

Home Inspection

Don't get a home inspection in Winter, he won't check various areas if they are covered in ice/slow. He also does not go up on the roof. Watch out, because you can be missing a lot of important issues.

Thank you Sunny,
I'm glad I was able to help you with your decision.

Response to clients edit: It is not safe to climb up into a 21/2 story roof in Winter, plus the neighboring houses are so close you can't properly or safely place a ladder even if wanted. I cannot control the weather, a couple of feet of snow piled up against the foundation is a limitation to ANY home inspection! I cannot comment on what I cannot see- no home inspector will. Yes winter poses some limitations, this is usually accepted and understood by most rational people.

Home Inspection

We found Darren recommend on a website so we called him for a home inspection. The whole thing went very well. Darren was on time, he did a thorough job, inspected everything and provided us with a detailed report. We didn’t have any problem and his price is fair so we would definitely recommend him.

Home Inspection

Like most people, Darren was referred to me by my real estate agent. With the home inspection, he did a great job. He answered every question of mine, checked everything of importance, everything that he should. It was a very thorough inspection. The price seemed competitive. I’d say it’s pretty affordable for what he does. And I there were no issues at all.
