Thorough, detail oriented service

I would happily recommend Safe Homes Canada to anyone looking for the highest quality home inspection out there. As a real estate investor, I have hired many inspections in the past and I would guarantee that Andy will provide the most detailed report you will find and go the extra mile with his inspection. Truly a premium service

Home Inspection

I had the please of meeting Andrew at a home inspection preformed on a protentional purchase of a home which I was hired as project manager for a friend of mine. Andrew was recommended for this inspection for his expertise and his inspection met higher than my personal expectation. He preformed a 6 hour thorough and accurate inspection of both the inside and outside of a home that had some much needed TLC. The purchaser had hesitations of this purchase due to it being a modular home. During the inspection, Andrew provided insight to every possible issues in this home, leaving no stone unturned. His even more impressive 46 page report; including photos; was incredible well written and expanded further on issues discussed during the in home inspection. I would definitely recommend Andrew for any home inspection as his knowledge surpasses most by far. This is no 2 hour cosmetic look around inspection. The purchaser of this home felt at ease and confident in continuing on with the purchase of this home; knowing what to expect and simple solutions of correcting some major and not so major issues discovered, pointed out and explained in logical detail by Andrew in person and report base.

Top notch home inspection

My client needed a home inspection quickly before Christmas and only 1 inspector came to mind. Andy made time for us the next day and as always was great. With Andy, you don't get a 30 minute in and out inspection. It's thorough and top notch. Andy takes the time to speak with the clients and let them know what he's seeing and ensures that they understand everything possible. The effort and quality is simply the best and Andy takes as much time as the house needs to make sure that everything has been covered. Even with snow on the roof, up he went to check it out. Attic is fully and thoroughly inspected. When it comes to ensuring my clients are kept happy, I can only trust the best and most professional partners. Andy has epitomized professional and is always my first recommendation for a home inspector.

Buyers Home Inspection

Andy was available to come in for a house inspection at a moments notice. He was very knowledgable and walked me through the whole process. He provided me with valuable information about how to repair and maintain many areas around my soon to be new home. He even went up into the attic. He provided me with a detailed report with everything discussed. He was a great person to work with and I thank him for that. I would definitely recommend him to family and friend and would use his service again.

Home inspection

We had the pleasure of having Andy from Safe homes Canada do our inspection for our first home. He was exceptional, going the extra mile not only to review the entire home and property top to bottom but also giving us detailed reports on every inch of the house with expert advice and recommendations as to what was needed and ways to prevent future issues. Highly recommend using Safe Canada homes if youre looking for a thorough inspection at a great price.

Home Inspection

We recently had the pleasure of working with Andy for a home inspection, and it was an exceptional experience. From the outset, Andy distinguished himself with his friendly demeanor and his incredibly thorough approach to the inspection process. He meticulously examined every inch of the property, from the roof attic to the crawl spaces, ensuring no detail was overlooked.

Andy's expertise was evident throughout the inspection, and his willingness to share his knowledge was incredibly helpful. He was open and honest, without any hidden agendas, solely focusing on our interests as homebuyers. He took the time to explain the significance of each finding, which trades would be best suited for any required work, and provided a detailed report that left us well-informed.

His commitment to transparency and education made the entire process a valuable learning experience for us. We found great comfort in his patience and responsiveness to all our questions. Working with Andy wasn't just about getting a home inspection; it was about building trust and confidence in our real estate decisions.

Without a doubt, Andy's dedication to his work and clients is a rarity in the industry. His integrity and professionalism are why we would highly recommend his services to anyone in need of a thorough and honest home inspection. Andy truly made us feel like well-educated and empowered homebuyers.

New home review

We were selling our home and I had Safe Homes Canada inspect my homes for any deficiencies that could hinder the sale of my home. Andy the ower of Safe Homes Canada thoroughly went thru each area of our home and let us know what should be upgraded. Many of the items we updated were helpful in the sale of the home when the new owner had their own inspection completed prior to finalizing the sale.

Proper diligence and great expertise

Andy is a knowledgeable, thorough inspector. Not only is he willing to go the extra mile for his clients, crawling into attics and crawlspaces instead of just sending in a camera, his expert advice helped identify what was a true issue and what was simply an area for eventual improvement. I'd recommend him to anyone who cares abimout having an inspection done right.

Home Inspection and more

I recently used Safe Homes Barrie to perform the home inspection on a property in Midhurst, Ontario that I was considering purchasing. I have used home inspectors before but Andrew FAR EXCEEDED any inspection I have previously had. He was thorough in all aspects of the inspection and took the time to explain what was required to make fixes or improvements to any minor defect that he identified or what it would cost to remedy.
I would absolutely recommend Safe Homes Barrie if you want a thorough home inspection

More about Safe Homes Canada

Safe Homes Canada is THE MOST THOROUGH home Inspection company in Canada. And that is PROVABLE. We walk and crawl all the way through attics and crawlspaces, examine all elements fully, while approximately 90% of home inspectors look inside from access points. We also fully inspect roofs - every surface and flashing - all winter long, while most inspectors say they cannot be inspected. Massive change is required in this industry, as there is no requirement for home inspectors - in any association Standard of Practice - to go all the way into attics and crawlspaces. So most home buyers are at risk relating to rotted structure, mould, asbestos, etc.
We are a civil engineering technology-based home inspection company that has been committed to integrity and excellence for a quarter of a century.

Our custom-typed reports are photo-driven, free of generic hyperbole, and grounded in the vernacular of building sciences, and are GUARANTEED.

Here is a simple tip for interviewing home inspectors: ask them exactly how they will inspect the attic. The only correct answer is, 'We go all the way through it, unless it is super-tight, so we can check all sheathing for mould, prod structural wood, and dig test holes for asbestos, bat guano, wood chips, etc.

Don’t risk costly surprises when you buy your next home. Call Safe Homes Canada first!
