Home inspection

Darren was wonderful! He was so kind and helpful. He knew it was our first home inspection and answered any questions or concerns we had. He took lots of pictures and explained things in detail of what needed to be done. He made us feel at ease with everything. I highly recommend him and will definitely be working with him again.

Home Inspection

Darren was very thorough, knowledgeable, and professional during our home inspection. He went above and beyond explaining things we did not understand and even sat down with us to explain his findings. He educated us on things to do in the future to prevent us from running into problems that may cost alot later on. I would definitely use his services again and would definitely recommend him to anyone needing an inspector in the future! Thanks again!

House inspection

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.

Very happy with this company, home inspector is very knowledgeable & patiently answered all my questions. 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.

Home Inspection

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.

SPECIALITIES
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.
