My partner and I were very nervous about purchasing our first home, since we know nothing about maintaining one. We felt this put us at a disadvantage, so we wanted to be ultra-confident in our inspection so we'd at least start on the right foot.
Our prospective home featured a wood-burning fireplace, so we needed a WETT certified inspector as well. We found Lyall online and decided to book him after reading amazing reviews.
My partner and I went from incredibly overwhelmed and nervous to feeling so at ease with our purchase, all thanks to Lyall's inspection. Many of his reviews will mention his easy-to-get-along-with personality, and his thorough and informative inspection.
I have to second these reviews. Lyall made us comfortable with him instantly. His inspection was very in-depth, and he explained everything we needed to know, and more, about the house as he went along. He took detailed notes and informed us of the timeline we could expect for replacing certain things, as well as the price we would be looking at.
He also gave us plenty of tips to keep the home in tip top shape, and provided basically an education on home-maintenance as he went along. A priceless bonus for someone in our situation.
My partner and I know so much more about our first home now. And we feel completely capable of maintaining it.
We would both highly recommend Lyall to anyone, no questions there! But if you are a first-time home buyer, we'll go a step further and say you NEED Lyall on your team to help you understand your home!
His incredibly competitive prices are just a bonus. If you don't want to take our word for it, just give him a call. It won't take you long to see what we're talking about.
