We hired Mike to come and inspect a property that we are interested in leasing. He went through each and every room, corner to corner and evaluated each space.
He was able to see things that were unnoticeable to us. He has such a keen eye for everything! He took the time to go through the entire space. Wrote up an amazing report with photos, explanations, clarifications, he included a glossary of terms and rules and regulations outlined by the Ontario Association of Home Inspectors/ Standards of Practice.
He emailed us the electronic report and then called us to go over it in case we didn't understand something. We would highly recommend him. He's passionate and very experienced.
Thank you Mike!!!
We were in the process of buying a new home and my realtor introduced us to Michael Holly. We liked the the way he looked at all the details. He suggested any improvements if required in the house. We were very satisfied with his inspection and will recommend him to our friends and family. Thank you Michael.
Mike did a home inspection on a condo unit that I was purchasing. He was very on time, as he was already waiting at the condo lobby before the time we were scheduled to meet. I was concerned about some damage on the walls prior to his inspection. Mike did a very thorough inspection and gave me a good understanding of what had happened that led to the water damage, along with pointing out some other minor issues. He was very helpful in providing me cost effective ways to repair these issues on my own. I was very satisfied with how detailed his check was and his tips in fixing any damages. I would highly recommend him!
When booked inspection lots of things explained to be checked with Ultrasonic etc. in actual just visual inspection checking of electrical outlets and faucet. roof inspected from ground level. basement not checked at all. Even window i reminded to check.
I am sorry that there was a miscommunication but the other Mike did the thermal imaging, with this new model of a $10,000 Flir E75 camera, I just purchased about 2 months ago. He also checked for water penetration in the basement by checking the wall and floor joint with a flashlight and then visually checked the metal band straps holding the insulation for rust and any sign of water in the insulation. When I do an inspection the other Mike does some things that need to be done, in any case you did have a though inspection.
Mike completed 2 home inspections for us and we were very pleased with the experience.
Mike walks the house with you, explains each items in detail, provides great advise, indicates which items are urgent and which ones can be completed in the long run and approximate cost of work.
His report is very well organized and easy to read with useful pictures.
Overall a great experience which ensures you can buy a new home with confidence once reviewed with Mike.
I am writing this review to show my appreciation for the assistance Mike gave on a difficult insurance matter. Mile helped correct a mistake made by an insurance inspector that created problems for us renewing our home insurance. We got Mike involved and he quickly understood the mistake and in short time explained the mistake to the insurance company and got them to reverse their position. Mike is highly knowledgeable, he listens well, and has excellent communication skills. We are very grateful for his assistance and we highly recommend him.
Michael Holley was a lifesaver when it came to answering our questions regarding the many changes we were considering for our 1928 home. Whether it was regarding our unusual front entry way, masonry work needed to open a back entryway, leakage in the basement or possibilities of the location of a new garage his clear and concise answers were a welcome change. I highly recommend him.
Michael was able to meet shortly after my initial call. His inspection was thorough, objective and uniquely professional. He is a great listener and is very knowledgeable. I appreciated him being true to the Ontario Building Code, the important guideline, which many contractors miss.
Michael offers a piece of mind for a safe and sound home. I would recommend him to anyone. So far, the most knowledgeable person I’ve spoke to in the building business. He also gave me a great recommendation for my next renovation project. Sincere thanks Michael.
Michael showed up on time. He took his time to do his inspection and answered all my questions and concerns. He is very professional and knows what he is talking about. furthermore he even connected me with a very professional hardwood flooring guy who also did an amazing job with my floor. I would recommend him to family and friends.
