Very professional, informative and thorough service. Would definitely use them again and have no issues in recommending them to other. Chris performed the inspection in the allocated time and went through all of the items that we should pay further attention to. It was re-assuring to gain Chris's perspective of where to and where not to further investigate the deficiencies that were identified.

Home Inspection

Very thorough and professional inspection followed with a very detailed Manual highlighting any issues which we were able to use to negotiate a better price from seller. Chris was great to work with, honest and knows his stuff. Was great having the Manual with all the details also as we were able to tackle the issues he pointed out within the first few weeks of occupancy. Result, very happy new home owners with peace of mind. Thank you Chris!

Condo Inspection

Exceptional inspection, which helped inform my decision as a first time buyer. Chris performed a thorough inspection of both the condo and the common areas in the building (roof and garage and common areas where access was allowed). He answered both my questions and my agent's questions, and made himself available to answer follow-up questions free of charge. Ultimately I ended up not purchasing the condo, but I was able to make an informed decision, with extensive knowledge of the building and suite to back up my decision. The report was very detailed and would be a great reference document if I had purchased the home. Both in the report and in person, Chris informed us about whether particular repairs required were serious or not, which was very helpful as a first time buyer. He also went through the very long strata documents to give an opinion on the state of the building itself. Overall this was an excellent service and I will recommend Haystack Home Inspections to my friends who are also looking to buy, and will return when I end up purchasing my home!

Home inspection

Chris did the home home inspection for us first time home buyers! he was patient and thorough regarding our many inquiries. We didn't know exactly what to look for and Chris lended his expertise frequently helping us to alleviate some of our worries. Chris spent over 2 hours in the house and gave us a large digital report after covering all the good and bad. We ended up purchasing the home and it has been great so far!

Home Inspection

Chris came recommended to us by a family member and also a family friend... he was highly punctual and prompt in his responses and exceeded our expectations. Chris provided a thorough report which lent itself to identify issues that needed to be addressed as well as some helpful "nice-to-do's". Chris made several follow-ups and made him available to any questions we had, at any time. Thanks again Chris!

Pre-Home Purchase Home Inspection

Chris was quick to respond to inquiries about his services and get an appointment time scheduled. His Post Inspections Report was thorough and easy to follow along. We will be recommending Chris to friends and families looking for a home inspector in the Vancouver area.

Condo Inspection

We were very happy with Chris to do the condo inspection that we planned to buy. At the end of the inspection, Chris walked us through the whole place, pointed out all the potential and existing faults in details. I got the written report the following day and it was very comprehensive, with photos and detailed explanation. Chris is a very knowledgeable inspector that I would highly recommend.

Condo Inspection Vancouver

My son purchased a condo in the west end of Vancouver in 2020. We were very fortunate to find a realtor that specialized in condos to help us as we were in Ontario. When we settled on a condo, our realtor gave us a few names of inspectors and we picked Chris. He did an in-depth inspection of the condo my son wanted to purchase as well as the building, the parking and storage areas. His report provided wonderful pictures and detailed explanations of all important areas. This helped us to make an educated decision and we were very appreciative of his knowledge and information because we couldn't be there. I would certainly recommend him to anyone who wants an expert to help them out! Helen K

Hi Helen, I was happy to help with your son's inspection. Images definitely help clients better understand the issues we are identifying, especially when they are unable to make it to the inspection summary. Thanks. Sincerely, Chris Thompson

Home Inspection

Chris was great! He made himself available for an inspection on short notice (what a crazy market we have in Vancouver right now!) and gave me a helpful and comprehensive report. With the information Chris provided, I was able to negotiate with the vendor to get issues of concern to me fully resolved. I would certainly recommend Chris for a thorough and candid inspection.
