1 review Toronto, ON

My inspector (Darren Arseneau) did an excellent job. He made me aware of serious issues present in the house I was interested in buying and answered every question I had with patience and in-depth knowledge. When you read other reviews highlighting Darren's professionalism (in every aspect of the word), you can trust them because they're 100% accurate.

He checked attic, roof, used special camera to check if there are any plumbing issues, checked basement, AC, electric, backyard, windows and a lot more. All of the suggestions were listed in the report that I got same day.

We were buying a home for the first time and hired Durham Home Inspection out of our realtor's recommendation. He was very courteous when we first met him and was very thorough in his inspection. Provided some honest feedback and outlined precisely what we needed to fix once we took possession. It was a great experience.

Very reasonable price and thorough job. Provided advice even after the contract was complete. Highly professional and willing to go the extra mile. It's important to have someone you trust do an important job like a home inspection. Would recommend for any job!

My wife and I hired this company to inspect a home we purchased in Pickering and found him to be very thorough. We found him to be very professional and gave us all the information we needed. We've since followed up on his recommendations and are pleased with the purchase.
thanks and will recommend to others.

We hired this company to inspect a vacant house that we were buying. We made the mistake of not seeing a red flag, he does not climb roofs! He went on with the inspection pointing one thing after another which seems to be good. In the end he missed out critical things such as why are there only three exhaust when there are two bathrooms, two kitchen range hood and one dryer at the basement! That the vent in the bathroom fan on the main floor is connected to nothing blowing moisture in the attic! That garage roof is in very bad shape that it needs immediate replacement! And the main thing is that we'll have to spend thousands of dollars for the things that he considered minor issues! That there are holes inside a basement cabinet which would tell us that the basement has no insulation of whatsoever! So do yourselves a favor and find another inspector!

Homeowners who take the time to complete some simple jobs in winter can reduce or eliminate costly repairs down the road. The following easy steps will help contribute to your comfort and energy efficiency while reducing future repairs. 1. Monitor basement humidity and avoid low relative humidity levels. Use a humidifier to maintain safe, relative humidity. 2. Examine your attic for frost accumulation. Check your roof for ice dams or icicles. 3. Vacuum your fire and smoke detectors, because dust or spider webs can prevent them from functioning. 4. Check electrical cords, plugs, and outlets for all indoor and outdoor seasonal lights to ensure fire safety. If worn or the plugs or cords feel warm to the touch, replace them immediately. 5. Clean your humidifier two or three times during the winter season. 6. Examine windows and doors for ice accumulation or cold air leaks. If any problems are found, make a note to repair or replace the windows or doors in the spring. 7. For more useful tips, visit the CMHC website.
