Thanks Chris for doing an excellent job of inspecting our home. Every aspect was positive from the clarification on PBT piping, the willingness to review Strata documentation, the friendly and thorough onsite work and finally the professional report. Thanks Chris.
I wanted to take the opportunity to thank you for your recent inspection of our new home in North Vancouver. I’ve purchased several homes in the past and worked with a couple of different inspectors who are well established in Vancouver. I found my experience this time to be far more positive than with past inspectors.
For starters I was impressed by your willingness to assist with providing great web based information on the Polybutylene piping that exists in our new home. There was a lot of ambiguous and misleading information surrounding the PBT piping in the complex which you addressed through various historical and installation specific references effectively putting my mind at ease. Another aspect of your pre-onsite work that was particularly impressive, and very different from my previous home inspection experiences, was your willingness to review strata meeting minutes on past maintenance activities performed. This was great background information which led to a more relevant and informed final report.
The onsite work performed was equally thorough and professional. From showing up early to your independent yet inclusive and friendly approach to the inspection both the realtor and I were impressed. In the past I’ve found that the inspectors seemed rushed and somewhat detached. In your case I could tell you thoroughly enjoyed evaluating every aspect of the structure and all the nuances of the internal workings of the place. At the same time you were able to distill the review down to what was most important and put it in a way that was easily understood.
The final report was the icing on the cake. It was professionally presented and written and included a summary of what we discussed onsite as well as information on other minor points. I will keep the report as a reference guide to the home on what was done in the past and what may need to be done in the future.
I feel even better about our home after your inspection as I now feel I know it better than homes I’ve lived at in the past. I am now aware of its strengths and it’s weaknesses. This also allowed me to leverage my investment in the inspection by requesting repairs from the seller. Thanks again Chris for inspecting our home. Both the realtor and I will confidently refer you to other home buyers.
