Chris has blown away all of my expectations of a home inspection. I have spoken with numerous other home inspectors (all of them were friends' referrals), but none of them could provide the services that Chris did. My point is, don't just listen to your friends; read the reviews! Chris gets perfect 10/10s for good reasons.
He arrived early (not just on time, but EARLY) to inspect the exterior or our building before even I showed up. We then went over the machinery room, the roof, and even the parkade where he pointed out any cracks and things and explained why they're there. This is what I meant when I said Chris had blown away all my expectations ---I only employed him to inspect our apartment suite but was happily provided a full comprehensive package.
As expected by this point, with the suite itself Chris showed even more care in the inspection. Every nook and cranny, every light and appliance (yes, he will even make sure your washing machine is running properly) and he even discovered a single missing screw on a door hinge. The list goes on...
At the end of the day, he then emailed us a 50-page inspection report complete with clear pictures, recap of EVERYTHING that we went through on site, along with a super easy to understand colour-coded "severity rating" for what requires action immediately and what can wait. In the end, the inspection report helped us negotiate a better price with the seller and I am now the very happy owner of our new home.
Thanks Chris! Your work gave me confidence in my purchase and contributed to me and my wife's new life here. I will recommend you to all my friends ---and telling them to read the reviews for themselves of course :)
