Excellent service, that paid for itself!

Overall an excellent experience, very thorough, explaining issues and possible future problems throughout the inspection, made many suggestions, but wasn't pushy with recommendations. Detailed report given right after inspection along with a follow-up report emailed with photos. Even responded quickly to questions we had many days later. Offered but didn't push an asbestos test, which we decided to have completed, and it actually ended up saving us money on our offer as things previously unknown to us and the homeowner were discovered. In the end, this equipped us with information and knowledge we didn't have previously that will be of great benefit since we are planning extensive renovations... to know where things stand now is invaluable. Would use them again without hesitation. Thank you, George!

The Perfect Guy for the Job

We had initially booked with another company, but after the insistence of my son, I changed to Home Sweet Home based on reviews here at Homestars. What a pleasure it was to meet and work with George. Home inspections are a titch stressful, but my Son and I were confident we were getting the best within mere minutes of meeting and chatting with George. We walked away knowing exactly what the house needed. I've been there twice previously and never noticed half the small and medium items George pointed out. His opinions and report enabled me to confirm this is indeed my forever home. But the best part? Who else gets such a fun, laugh out loud inspection? A wonderful experience with the perfect mix of humour and professionalism! Would recommend 1000 times over!!!! Thanks for making this easy on us George!

Home Inspection

Based on George’s credentials and good reviews online, I used him for a home inspection. He was thorough in his review of the home, showed me where there were issues and provided an extensive checklist/report as well as photographs of areas of concern. He also had better pricing, which included answering any questions that I had after the inspection. I would definitely recommend George.

Customer service

I would like to give George Mendes top marks for his excellent customer service. George did the home inspection for the buyers of a listing I had in Hamilton. Not only were the buyers satisfied with the home inspection and the house itself but my interaction with George was excellent. He went over and above the call of duty to make sure everyone involved in this home purchase was completely satisfied. I would not hesitate to refer George to anyone looking for a Home Inspector.

Home Inspection = Niagara Falls, On

I called Home Sweet Home to do a home inspection for me, based on reviews online. I am a female, buying alone and so I needed someone who knew what they were doing and who was honest. I cannot even begin to tell people what an amazing experience this was. George came to the house, did the inspection and took the time to explain everything and answer all questions. It is a pleasure to find someone who cares about what he is doing, and provides the best advise and information during this critical time of home buying. I would tell anyone - there is no one else you would want to hire to do your home inspection. Incredible from start to finish.

I was entirely satisfied by the service I was provided by George Mendes of Home Sweet Home Inspections. He was very thorough and explained everything very clearly. I was very reassured by what he said and showed me throughout the inspection process. In addition he was a pleasure to work with. I would certainly recommend George and his company to anyone about to initiate a home inspection.

First Time Home Owners House Inspection

George came highly recommended to us by multiple friends. He was very flexible to accommodate our inspection date and showed up right on time. He was very thorough with his inspection and took us through a walk through to go over any issues or concerns, as well as, provided an inspection report. The shed was locked during the inspection and he was unable to enter so he came back on a different date to inspect it for us. We are very happy with the inspection, he was very professional, friendly and offered sound advice. We will definitely recommend Home Sweet Home Inspections to our friends and family!

It was our pleasure to come back and do a check of your shed as it did have power running to it with a sub panel. It was a pleasure working for you both. I hope you enjoy your home for years to come.
