Professional and kind

I was hesitated getting inspection service but I changed my mind and not regret it. And I recommend you getting the inspection for 30 days or year end strongly. thanks!

Home Inspection townhouse

Phil and his team were extremely professional and thorough with their assessment. They also were excellent in explaining their process, and any issues found throughout the house. They followed strict COVID protocols both inside and outside the house. I highly recommend using his services . I will be sure to use them for any future inspections.

You need inspection on a brand new home too

If you think a newly built home doesn’t need inspection, think twice.
I should have got the inspection done within 30 days after possession. Instead I got the inspection done in preparation for the deadline for the one year Tarion warranty.
Acker Home Inspection provided me with thorough analysis and deficiency report and I am confident that I can have the builder follow up with the deficiencies.
Acker Home are two men; I didn’t know there were two gentlemen and I think it just adds more efficiency and therefore time saved on my end too.
I will definitely use their service on our new home that we will move in to this October.

Home inspection

We were very impressed with the work of Acker Home Inspection. Their knowledge and professionalism during our inspection was greatly appreciated.

The post inspection report provided is clearly written and extremely helpful.

We will absolutely recommend Phil's services to any of our friends who may need a home inspection.

Year end inspection

Absolutely excellent in every way. Courteous, thorough, extremely experienced and knowledgable, goes above and beyond. Gave me helpful information re: the house, especially how to use the air exchange and keeping the humidity down, which the builder was not able to help with

Great friendly service

We bought a new townhouse in Barrhaven, and wanted an inspector in preparing our one year Tarion warranty claims. Acker was very helpful and informative, they even prepared the Tarion submittal form which saved a great deal of time.

More than we expected!

Acker home inspection provided us with an amazing service and exceptional inspection report.
I hope this review helps other potential customers chose Acker the same way other reviews helped us make the choice.
Phil was great from the first minute we got a hold of him until we received the report.
On site he took his time to inspect every detail accessible to him. He also took the time to explain to is in person during the inspection.
His company’s process is very well streamlined from booking to accessing reports and making online payment with multiple options.
The report and findings were very detailed considering the amount of time available for a home inspection and the general observation nature of home inspections. I have hired two inspectors in the past and never used their services again. I would not look for any other company in the future. Thank you so much Phil. Your findings will help us make our next move in this home purchase.
I want to add that we booked the night before. Inspection done at noon and report was available in the evening!

Very professional service

Phil is very professional, knows all the construction details without even need to look at any floor plans. He was guiding me to every part of the house, and explain how it should work, and what the purpose of the fan etc. Leaves me plenty of time to ask questions.

Home Inspection with a Ribbon

Very courteous, professional and knowledgeable service. And not just at the home inspection appointment, but also for after-service support when you have additional questions or concerns, and/or need help challenging the builder.
