Home inspections

From DK. Chris and Haystack home inspections did two inspections for me. They were both thorough and exhaustive, and in one case caught significant but not obvious issues that led us to not purchase that home. In the second case a leak was spotted that we had missed that was quickly fixed. We have used the excellent inspection report on the home we have just purchased to fix minor issues that could have had long-term consequences. I highly recommend Haystack, with the cost well worthwhile.

Very Thorough Inspection

After a bad experience, I was somewhat sceptical of home inspections. On the purchase of our new condo our realtor convinced us we should have one done. Chris was recommended by an acquaintance of ours.
His inspection was very thorough and he pointed out several issues that we had overlooked and we were able to have them rectified prior to moving in. Well worth the cost!!

Pre-purchase Condo Inspection

Chris was very thorough with the inspection both inside the unit and outside regarding the condition of the building. He noticed many things we missed during our own walk through and graded the observations using an easy to understand scale. He answered all my questions clearly and thoroughly and provided me with a very detailed report in a timely manner. I will definitely recommend Chris to anyone who is in need of similar services. Overall Chris provided me with vital information regarding a major purchasing decision and I feel the money was very well spent.

Inspection

Chris allowed me to spend the entire inspection with him because I wanted to be educated while he worked. He was friendly and professional at the same time. He is open to further education beyond the service date, which is generous and helpful. I highly recommend Chris!

Condo inspection

I was referred by a friend who had Chris did an inspection on his home and he mentioned he is the best in the industry. Chris was amazing when he did the condo inspection for me. He explained in detail on what to expect prior to inspection and he was extremely thorough during inspection, and explained the findings in a way that anybody can understand. He sent me the written report in a day! Give Chris a call so you don’t have to stress over it. -Janet

Excellent customer service!

Highly recommend! Chris was very fast to respond, very thorough, knowledgeable, and professional. Most importantly for me, he described to us any issues in every day terms that we could understand! He let us know exactly what to expect before the inspection and reminded us again what he was going to do on the day of when we arrived at the house. The turnaround time for the report after his inspection was extremely fast. Communication was excellent! You will be very satisfied with the service you get. Thank you Chris!
