house insepction

Chris was recommended by a realtor, we were looking at a house and he was able to accommodate our timeline. I met Chris at the house and he went over everything with us and then emailed a detailed report the following day. His inspection discovered a number of issues that the current home owners had not disclosed nor were even aware of in a couple of the items. We ultimately decided to pass on the house as the costs associated with the repairs were substantial. Chris was great to deal with, professional and thorough we will use him again for the next place.

Hi Jordan, There are often a few surprises when reviewing a home perched on a steep slope with a stream running beside it and an ocean for a backyard. The views are spectacular but so are implications of the issues. I wish you luck with your search and hope to be helping you again soon. Sincerely, Chris Thompson

Condo Inspections

Chris was recommended to us through our realtor for a pre-purchase inspection of a 2 bedroom unit in downtown and he did not disappoint. He was punctual, thorough and efficient. He tested every component of the unit (electrical, mechanical, structural, etc.) and would provide live feedback as he completed each steps. He took time to address all our questions on specific items and concluded the inspection with a verbal report and confirmation on viability of the unit before we committed to the purchase (which met our tight timelines). He then followed up the next day with a more thorough written report for the record. He had a wealth of knowledge about the area and the surrounding buildings which kept the session informative and interesting. Overall very satisfied with the service and highly recommend Chris.

Hi Shahab, I am happy to hear you found the inspection informative and interesting. When you have such a good view of something as iconic as the Marine Building it is hard not to impart some local history. Good luck with your renovations. Sincerely, Chris Thompson

Home Inspection

I recently bought a condo in an older building and used Chris' services for the inspection. He was very thorough and helpful in explaining everything. I had a tight schedule for closing and Chris was able to turn the report around very quickly. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for home inspection services.

Home Inspection on a 1985 House

Chris was prompt and very thorough. He pointed out any issues with recommendations on what needed to be fixed immediately and which ones could wait. He worked with our realtor and provided a detailed report the next day. I would recommend Chris to friends and family.

Home Inspection prior to purchase

Our realtor included Haystack Home Inspections in his recommendations when we needed an inspection done. We are very pleased that we chose Chris. He is very personable and easy to work with. He was available within our timeframe and responded quickly when we had an opportunity to view. His work was very through and complete, and he submitted a followup report which we still refer to as we plan future projects. As a result of his inspection report we had the confidence to follow through with our desired purchase. His price was fair and we would recommend him to anyone wishing to have a good house inspection.

Home Inspection Review

I recently purchased my first condo and elected to use the services of Chris as my home inspector. I found Chris very professional throughout the entire process. Chris answered all my questions and provided a detailed and informative report regarding the inspection. Chris also provided care and maintenance steps to follow to ensure my new purchase is kept in good condition which I really appreciated. I would recommend Chris to everyone and will definately be using his services in the future.

Hi Rebecca, It was great getting a chance to work with you and your partner. Like many first time home buyer's your first choice wasn't quite what you expected. It is wonderful to hear that you are so happy with the second place we inspected. Good luck. Sincerely, Chris Thompson
