Quality Home Inspection

Bryce was very thorough in his home inspection, very professional and was able to provide a comprehensive report within a few hours in order for us to make an informed decision on buying a home in Dundas. Incredibly efficient. We were much more confident after hearing his review, especially with all his great suggestions on how to improve problem areas, as well as the thermal imaging tool he used to detect any hidden areas of heat loss, proper spacing of joists, and any potential water damage. We highly recommend him, and would most certainly use his services again in future.

Home inspection in Burlington

We contacted Bryce through a referral from our real estate agent. Bryce visited the property we were interested in buying and did a very thorough inspection. Moving from a condo into a home, we had many questions, and he completed a through inspection and then provided a very detailed report. The report was helpful not only in our purchase decision, but as a guide to home maintenance for our new property. Would highly recommend. Thank you Bryce!

Noticed the little details - saved our bacon

Bryce did a very thorough job and was able to give us an insider's look at the house we were buying. His most valuable service, however, was uncovering the hidden knob and tube wiring that the seller claimed/believed had been updated. With this information in hand we were able to deal fairly with the seller to ensure that the wiring issue and other serious issues raised in the inspection were satisfactorily handled. As a side note, I showed the inspection report to a friend who is in the trades. He commented that it was the best inspection report he has ever seen.

Home Inspection

I chose Rankin Home Inspection because their sample report online was more detailed than most, and the report contained actual photos taken on site of potential problems in difficult-to-access areas of the home. These photos would allow us to communicate clearly when it came time to have repairs done.

I accompanied Bryce on the inspection and asked him questions and took notes on nearly everything he examined. He was pleasant, welcomed my questions and took time to give clear answers.

One example of how he arrived at one of his findings will best illustrate the detail of his observation and follow-through in his analysis: Bryce noticed that a pillar supporting the roof of the front porch was slightly tilted inwards. He probed the bricks that were supported by the pillar, and found one of the bricks was loose. Temporarily removing the brick and exploring behind it with a flashlight revealed rotten wood in the frame of the roof (evidence of prolonged roof leakage), and a soot-like coating on interior surfaces, (suggesting fire damage.) The covered porch, and second floor balcony above the porch would need major repairs or replacement.

Other disappointing findings (such as knob and tube, poor patching of chimney flashings, pinholes in the main sewage stack) led me to tell Bryce, just one hour into the inspection, that my husband and I would probably withdraw our offer to purchase. Bryce offered me the option to speak with my husband, make a decision, and if we decided not to buy the home, to end the inspection right then, and he would charge us a reduced fee for a partial report.

We've had four home inspections on a variety of homes, as our family has relocated within Ontario. And the inspection done for us by Bryce Rankin last week was the most meticulous, helpful and informative of them all. I can't imagine buying another home in this region, without first getting a report by Bryce.

Home Inspection

We purchased an older house in St. Catharines a few months ago. The sellers had a home inspection report available so we did not arrange for one. However after living here for several months, we decided that the sellers' report had some gaps and that we needed more information about our house. We contacted Bryce Rankin, who is highly recommended on Homestars. We are happy to say that the Homestars ratings for Bryce are bang on. He did an incredible job for us and we highly recommend him. He is extremely knowledgeable, patiently answered all of our questions and provided great tips and advice. He was prompt, respectful, courteous, personable and friendly from the time he arrived and throughout the inspection. Thank you Bryce!

Home Owner's Inspection

I bought a house without an inspection and immediately on winning the bid set up time to have Rankin Home Inspection come to complete a review of the property. Bryce was prompt and very professional, taking the time to walk me through the house and what he was seeing. The checks of appliance make/models for recall was a huge bonus for me. It turns out the gas fireplace in the basement was recalled and needed to be disconnected immediately!

The final report contained a great write-up along with pictures to illustrate problem areas and a timeline of repairs to consider. I would 100% recommend using Rankin Home Inspection to all my friends and family!

Home Inspection

On May 11th, 2017, Bryce did a home inspection of a townhouse I was really excited about buying in Crystal Beach. Thankfully, after Bryce did a very thorough, knowledgeable and professional inspection of the property, I managed to avoid buying a money pit fraught with both interior and exterior water damage due to incorrect pex plumbing, incorrect couplings with the pex plumbing, poor exterior sealing around house, windows, doors and master bedroom balcony, joists were cut down to only 1 inch left to fit tubs and showers in - which left them unstable - therefore causing the plumbing to leak down the main & basement floor walls and ceilings. A real house of cards waiting to collapse. Thank you, Bryce, for saving me a ton of $.

Home Inspection

We can't thank Bryce enough for his excellent work. We contacted him to provide a home inspection on a property we were considering buying. He was knowledgeable, thorough and attentive. He uncovered some serious issues with the home's wiring and pests and saved us countless amounts of time, money and agony. He was flexible and quick to respond to our questions. We will definitely be using Bryce's help again in the near future.
