It was great working with Chris

Chris was incredibly knowledgeable and was able to translate that knowledge into concise explainations of his findings. Hey conveyed his observations clearly and made the significance of everything known. He was great to work with and I will definitely choose him in the future

Hi Lukas, So happy we could help with your Vancouver condo inspection. It is so important for clients like yourself to get a true understanding about the building they are potentially buying into. With some buildings still holding out on getting up to date depreciation and engineering reports it becomes that much more important. Thanks for sharing your Haystack Home Inspections experience. Sincerely, Chris Thompson

Home inspection

From Anne B - Chris went above and beyond what was necessary for a home inspection. He even helped me measure the rooms after his inspection was over. His verbal summary was encouraging and his written report comprehensive and easy to understand. I would certainly recommend him to family and friends.

Hi Anne, Helping you measure up your Vancouver condo is definitely beyond the call of duty. Fortunately, the afternoon allowed that extra time. It is certainly nice to read that you found both the verbal summary and written report to your liking. Sincerely, Chris Thompson

Coquitlam

The inspection was very thorough and professional. Chris was available on short notice and was able to accommodate our schedule. He answered all of our questions on the spot and followed up after sending the report to see if we needed any further clarification. Overall, it was a very reassuring and positive experience. Happy to recommend his services to others who're looking for a reliable inspection company.

Home Inspection

I conducted a home inspection this summer with Haystack. Chris Thompson's style of reporting and advice was key in negotiating a reduced price with the seller. His report and advice will be the guide for the ongoing repairs and maintenance at our new home. The greatest value of Haystack is the post-inspection services. Chris made himself available to address our questions. I would strongly recommend Haystack when buying a home.

Hone Inspection

Chris was recommended to me by someone with good reviews who had stopped doing home inspections. I saw Chris's online reviews and I was encouraged that he would be the right person for the job. Chris answered my call promptly and he showed tremendous flexibility to schedule a home inspection with short notice. Chris was thorough and professional on the day of the inspection and he let us know everything we needed to be aware of before deciding whether or not to purchase our home. His final report was well illustrated and detailed, yet still easy to understand. I would recommend Chris to anyone else who is in need of a home inspection.

Home Inspection

We approached Chris to come and conduct a home inspection on a house we were contemplating buying in North Vancouver - he came highly recommended to us from our realtor. We were so happy with the very thorough report Chris provided us with - he took the time to closely inspect all areas of the home, inside and out, leaving no stone unturned. We joined Chris for the last half hour of the inspection when he summarized his main findings and showed us in person, areas of the home that were of concern (in particular a major issue with a retaining wall on the boundary of the property). We found Chris to be highly knowledgable, professional and approachable. He provided a complete report by 9am the following morning and followed up with us after we'd had a chance to look over the report to answer any questions. Due to some of the issues highlighted in Chris' report, we decided not to go ahead with the purchase of this particular property. We plan to use him again when we find the next possible home to buy and have already recommended him to friends of ours who are currently looking to buy their first home.

Hi Sarah, Thanks for the detailed review of your Haystack Home Inspection. Factors outside the home may have the largest impact on your decision to purchase at times. Sorry you are still looking for the home of your dreams and I look forward to working with you again in the future. Sincerely, Chris Thompson

Home inspection

Chris was a referral from a guy who is no longer in the business of home inspection. I immediately set an appointment with him for condo inspection. On the day of inspection he gave us an overview on what to expect before, during and after the inspection. He is straight to the point,approachable and has keen in details. The report was very detailed and easy to understand. His company is highly recommended.

Detailed, thorough, and followed up

My realtor recommended Chris at Haystack when I was doing my due diligence before buying a house in North Vancouver. I was very pleased with Chris’s inspection, report, and follow up. I had time to attend the inspection and he walked me through what he saw as he went, and was happy to discuss when I wanted more detail. His report covered all the bases, and he followed up with me the next day after making some follow up calls about aluminum wiring. Would recommend.
