Home inspection

As an experienced realtor who has seen many inspections, I invited Andy to take care of my mom’s inspection near Barrie.

My feedback is simple: it was a thorough process, and we had a great time.

Andy is an educator as much as an inspector. His civil engineering background is a major benefit.

He takes the time to inspect and assess every piece – so no surprises - but also takes the time to teach all the simple solutions. He helps people NOT WASTE MONEY.

I am completely happy to recommend him.

Superior service

Not only did Andy take the time to discover everything that needed to be done, he taught us how the building code has changed, and the inexpensive things we can do – like add insulation – to update the home, prevent future problems and save money. It was satisfying to find someone this passionate about doing a thorough job, and who took the time to not rush the process. If we move again, we know who to call.

Honest and Thorough Home Inspection

Andrew is a very reliable and honest home inspector who is extremely thorough. He leaves nothing overlooked. My husband and I called him on a referral to inspect our home in Cannington. Andrew provided sound advice, a very thorough and comprehensive report, and made sure that we understood the information he was providing to us. In addition, Andrew assured us that if and when we have questions or concerns about anything, we can contact him. Its comforting to know that we know someone to consult with as needed :)

Home inspection

Andy was a God sent. He walked me through the entire house and was very knowledgeable and detailed. Home inspections are usually boring and dull, but Andy makes it engaging and fun. He answered all my questions and was still available after the initial inspection to
answer my questions. Worth every penny for a professional of Andy’s caliber!
Go Leafs Go!!

Detailed...Detailed...Detailed

A home inspectors job is to provide an honest, detailed holistic view of the property under consideration. Andy does his job with extreme care. He is fastidious and passionate about his trade, taking the time to walk through the entire property with care.

As a home purchaser I know the warts and beauty spots of the house I am procuring. I would absolutely hire Andy again!

You are in Safe hands with Safe Homes Inspections

Professionalism. Thoroughness. Educational. Concise. Peace of Mind. All words that speak of the commitment to the job that is provided by Safe Homes Canada. Andy is truly one of THE best home inspectors out there. His client driven approach to providing services enabled us to make a well-informed decision on the purchase of our new country dream home back in October. His knowledge and section by section approach to going through a home, coupled with his report/photos and his recommendations for any issues (big or small) was invaluable. Do yourself a favour and call him for your home inspection needs...and he has a great sarcastic wit to boot, which we loved.

Home inspection Wasaga

When buying a house for the first time, there are many things that as a buyer you need to keep in mind. We found out first hand that this is no easy process. Decision time came fast and we needed an expert to provide us with a thorough report of the house we were so interested in. Speaking to Andy from the first time and until we made our decision we felt in safe hands. He was always available and ready to provide an insight in all the questions we had with regards to the house. He went out of his way to make sure we understood what he was doing every step of the way. We learned so much just by following Andy around the property - " There are no stupid question.." He would say.
If you want the inspection done right call Andy!
We definitely recommend his services!

Beyond Expectations

Andy was not only thorough but added a lot of value by providing information about maintaining the property. He was personable and helpful and he even let me know about an out of the way beach nearby that I didn't know about beforehand. A great guy and a great service.

Awesome inspection

We moved into our new home in August and Andy came in to do a very thorough inspection from top to bottom. We spent the afternoon with him going over every element and he explained everything to us in fine detail. He's friendly, up-front, honest and even helped us lock down a roofer to help us fix a leak (which occurred after inspection once we were already moved in, following a bad storm) which was not at all something he had to do for us - but he went above and beyond.

Absolutely recommend his services to anyone looking for inspection services!
