Home Inspection

Phil came in last minute and did an amazing home inspection for us. He was available on a Sunday to come in and did an extremely thorough inspection of the house. He answered any and all questions we asked with great information. We walked away from this learning so much more than we expected to learn. We had the report of the inspection sent to us within hours of the inspection being completed and the report is extremely detailed and has as much information as humanly possible added to it. We will definitely be recommending Acker Home Inspection to anyone we talk to, and will be using their services again in the future.

New home assessment towards 30 day Tarion review

I asked Phil to help inspect my new Mattamy home within the 30 day window from first occupancy and with a view to outlining issues for my Tarion report. Found him personable, knowledgeable and to the point. He laid out the issues found with photos and direct explanations to the extent that I understood. He was thorough and clarified everything with recommendations for remediation where necessary. I would use him again and unreservedly recommend him and his services.

Excellent Attention to Detail

I bought a new home and brought in Acker after hearing positive reviews in my community about their experience working with them to prepare for a Tarion Warrenty 30 day.

They were amazing. They not only found a lot of defects that I would have missed which pretty major but they also took pictures, wrote it up and even cited the exact Tarion warranty subsection that applies to each defect so make my job as the homeowner super easy.

I would recommedn without hesitation.

One year inspection

So glad I hired Acker Home Inspection for our one year Tarion warranty. They found defects I never would have noticed and explained everything along the way. I learned a lot about my home and they gave great maintenance tips throughout the inspection. Worth every

Phil is just Amazing . Through home inspection

Phil is extremely competent, patient and we had a very good experience with the home inspection. He is very detailed and explains everything as he goes. No question is silly for him. Would highly recommend.

House Inspection - one year

Re-hired Phil and his team to come by and do a second home inspection. Phil and his team found items that were not on our radar which further validated on why we should have a home inspection!

Tarion 1 Yr Warranty Submission Inspection

I received the Acker Home inspection flyer in the mailbox at the right time. My 1 yr Tarion submission was due date was coming up and figured an inspection was the right course of action. Called Phil and set up an appointment. Phil and Randy showed up on time, explained the process and then proceeded to do a very detailed inspection inside and out (in a heavy rain storm). Not only did they do an inspection but educated me on aspects of my home which I greatly appreciated. They took the time to answer the myriad of questions I bombarded them with. As I was filling out my online submission with Tarion I had a few questions, emailed Phil at 9:00pm and received a prompt reply - this was definitely a pleasant surprise. I would definitely recommend Acker Home inspection.
Phil and Randy are courteous, professional, detailed oriented and willing to pass on their extensive knowledge. I wish there was more than 10 out of 10 i could give them.

Quality Home Inspection

Acker Home Inspection was professional, efficient, friendly and well worth the money. I learned a lot about my future house during the two hour inspection. This gives me the confidence to move ahead in a well informed way with the purchase of my first house.

New home inspection

Mr. Acker came highly recommended by a friend who used him to do their new home inspection and he did not disappoint. He came on time with an assistant and did a detailed inspection of our new home. He was very knowledgeable and pointed out deficiencies that we would otherwise not have noticed. In the end, a detailed report is generated on-site that included a pre-filled Tarion form that makes it very easy for us to file the form with Tarion.

Overall, we are very satisfied with the inspection and would glad recommend Mr. Acker to anyone.
