home inspection

Chris was very professional, thorough and great to work with. He provided an in depth report and answered all of our questions. He inspected a condo for us and went from the roof to the basement checking everything out.

Hi Kerith, I am glad I could help. Thanks for sharing your experience it means a lot because you have such a solid back ground in purchasing and renovating properties. At Haystack Home Inspections it is important to review major components from the roof to the basement even in a Condo. If any further questions come up during your renovation please get in touch. Sincerely, Chris

Home Inspection

I was extremely pleased with the inspection of our new condo. The inspection and report were thorough and provided me with the information I needed not only to make an informed decision, but to understand what might be needed in the coming years.

I recommend Haystack Home Inspections without hesitation and will utilize their services again, should the need arise

Home Inspection

Chris was an exceptionally thorough and meticulous inspector with a friendly demeanor and infinite amounts of patience. He answered all of our questions, even the ones we didn't know we had, and took care to explain everything to us in a way that prepared us for future costs and renovations. He even made sure we'd never open our large windows too wide, to protect our daughter from falls. That kind of care and attention was very much appreciated. His home inspection documents were also very nicely laid out, detailed, and in our hands within a day. I look forward to working with Chris with future home purchases.

Condo Inspection

Haystack Home Inspections was extremely professional and thorough. He did a great job inspecting the place, and pointed out issues we never would have foreseen. His report was extremely detailed, clear, and easy to follow. He also reviewed minutes and strata documents, and gave us his general impressions from those. Haystack Home Inspections was vital to our decision to purchase a property. I would highly recommend this inspector!

Hi Jane, I appreciate you taking to time to post a review. Getting down to details and what's not being said can make all the difference in a purchasing decision. There are so many condos in Vancouver that have deferred long term maintenance and it's important to know what you are taking on when you finally decide to remove your subject to inspection. I look forward to working with you again. Sincerely, Chris

Home inspection prior to purchase. Inspection post renovation.

Worked with Chris to do the inspection prior to my purchase. Chris was extremely thorough and took the time to explain his findings to me very clearly. I also renovated my suite and wanted to double check the work in my bathroom. I have full confidence in Chris, do I contested him again for a follow up inspection. Again, he did an outstanding, thorough job. You can really see that he has his customers interest as his top priority.

Hi Mike, Thanks I really do have my customers interest as my top priority. While it is great getting paid for a home or condo inspection helping others is a reward in itself. Your renovations look great and I am glad you felt I was the best person to inspect the work done by your contractors. Enjoy your condo and if questions come up please get in touch. Sincerely, Chris

Home Inspection

Chris was professional, friendly and thorough. Couldn't have asked for more. After some very bad home inspections with other companies in the past Haystack Home Inspections was a breath of fresh air.

Home Inspection

Chris from Haystack Home Inspections was professional, thorough and pleasant. I particularly liked the full detailed report he emailed to us after he did his inspection- which is something I had not received with previous home inspections with other companies.

Pre-purchase condo inspection

Chris walked me through all of the maintenance items for future consideration, and was very flexible in booking the appointment at the time of my convenience. His report was thorough and full of helpful photos.

Company Response

Kevin, Thanks for the review. Taking the step of getting a pre-purchase condo inspection on a relatively new building can help with that last little bit of reassurance before purchasing. When we find no significant issues it can be just as important as when we find major issues. I am glad you were happy with the service you received. If any questions should arise after you move in please get in touch. Sincerely, Chris

Home Inspection

The property I am interested is over 1M - quite a big investment. So i am very caution, and want to 200% sure the property has no problem and no potential problem. Chris is very professional. He knows what he is doing and I actually followed him during the whole inspection. He explained each procedure to me, I am very happy with his professional knowledge and service. Highly recommended! AAA+++

Hi Steven, Thanks for your A+ rating. I appreciate whether people are spending a couple hundred thousand on a condo or millions on a detached house it is usually the largest investment they are likely to make. It's important for an inspector to take care to allow them to make the wisest decision they can. I hope you are happy in your Richmond home. Sincerely, Chris
