As a first time home buyer with no experience with this process I was very nervous and uneducated. Chris was very helpful with explaining everything in detail to help me have a better understanding. The inspection report was thorough and was easy to distinguish.

I'm very happy with the service Chris provided. I was able to schedule my home inspection with him on very short notice and he was accommodating. Chris took his time to inspect every tiny details of the place I was going to purchase and provided a thorough report the very next morning. He is professional and helpful. I would not hesitate to recommend him to others.

Mickey, Thanks for sharing your Burnaby condo purchasing experience. We do perform short notice inspection. We find it difficult to turn client because of the high standards we set for ourselves. We fear the quality of the inspection they may receive if we are unable to help. Thanks again. Sincerely, Chris Thompson

I had my new apartment inspected before I was in a year so if the builder has to fix something it was fixed before the one year warranty was up. Glad I did I missed somethings and the builder is fixing them before the year is up now. I was given some Ideas on how to keep my place safer as well and what to look for in the future as well as the building ages

Chris did an excellent job inspecting our one bedroom apartment. He was able to accommodate the inspection on short notice and was extremely helpful with his knowledge and experience. Chris was helpful in providing solutions to potential problems or issues that may arise. He spent extra time at our place to make sure that everything was checked. I would strongly recommend Chris to anyone looking for home inspector. Thank you Chris!

I’m a first time homebuyer and Chris did the inspection of my new place. He was really thorough and answered all my questions. He gave me suggestions if I decide to make any changes or Reno to my place. And he was also honest to say if he’s not sure of something and advise me to seek professional advice. I’m happy with his service. And he gave discount on inspection cost.

Chris did a great job for us inspecting our place in a timely manner, and what was a great is the fact that I am still calling him regarding the inspection and asking his opinion on things he mentioned in his report so I can get the proper repairs. Very satisfied with his work and approach. I would recommend haystack home inspection to friends and family.

Hey Marc, Thanks for telling people about Haystack Home Inspections extended service. Helping your plumber understand how the layout of the plumbing system worked was a little surprising but all in a day's work. Good luck with your repairs and call with any future questions. Sincerely, Chris Thompson

We hired Chris and asked him to do an inspection the same day. He was accommodating and did a very through inspection of the house. I was very impressed with his level of knowledge and attention to detail. He inspected the roof, sewer connection and services that were in tight crawl spaces. The resulting report was clear and concise and contained many photographs to document his major findings. He identified many important deficiencies and also explained in simple terms what the consequences of the deficiencies would be.

Hi Peter, Your reference is appreciate. As a professional home inspector it is important to be able to identify issues, just as important is being able to relay those findings to a client in a way they understand them. Thanks for letting me help with your understanding of your Vancouver heritage town home inspection. Sincerely, Chris Thompson

We hired Chris after reading many raving reviews about his services and were extremely pleased with his work. Chris was professional and thorough with his work. He provided us with an 87-page report that was very easy to follow and well above industry standard. We would not hesitate to recommend Chris to anyone seeking a piece of mind when purchasing a property.
