home inspection

We were extremely happy with Trina's services as our home inspector. She did an excellent job on the inspection itself and provided a detailed report with pictures that is very helpful. She helped us prioritize what needed to be done first [It is an older home with lots of things to do ] and what things could wait abit. But even more importantly she talked us through things ,contacted trades people for us and helped us in many ways she did not have to. As we were moving from ontario we needed a bit more help and she never hesitated . I feel comfortable calling her anytime and know she will be an ongoing source of support !

Home Inspection

I hired Trina through the recommendation of a friend who used her for their home inspection. I was blown away with the inspection she did and the detailed report and how she went above and beyond to answer all our question days after the inspection. What impressed me most was the knowledge she had what lengths she went to to get information we needed. We highly recommend Trina to anyone and have to all our family and friends and will be using here for all our future inspections. Thanks Trina!!

House Purchase - Vernon

Trina completed our Building inspection on our new home. I was most impressed by how thorough, detailed, knowledgeable and professional she was. Not only did she help us on a last minute request on a long weekend, she provided a report in a record turn around with an easy to read report that summarized deficiencies and recommended maintenance schedules with how to's. I felt Trina went above and beyond expectation to get us all the information we reqiuired about the septic and garage concerns / questions and was great in communicating with us. Thank you Trina for making this an excellent experience and helping us with our new home!!!!

Condo inspection

I'm so glad I booked Trina for my pre purchase condo inspection. She was highly recommended through my agent. Nothing but great things to say. Super informative, extremely thorough, and showed a real passion for what she does. It's clear she truely cares about her customers and their need to be fully informed about their real estate desision. She stayed around to answer every question I had and even went over all the strata minutes, as well as went out of her way do her homework on the area and building prior to coming. Highly recommend to anyone needing an inspection. Thanks Trina!

Highly Recommended!!!

Trina came to me through a recommendation from my realtor, I was given a few companies to choose from but the moment I heard that the inspector was a woman I didn't hesitate for a moment. And I wasn't disappointed, it is very obvious from the moment I met Trina that she loves her job. Trina isn't afraid to get her hands dirty and what I really appreciated, she shared her knowledge and went into detail in plain language about what she was seeing throughout the inspection.

The place I purchased was overloaded with furniture which made it difficult for Trina to do a full inspection in many of the rooms, so she offered to come back once I moved in to check the areas she couldn't get access to during the initial inspection just to be sure, and she stuck to her word! I moved in during the summer but once winter rolled around the heat stopped working, so when I reached out to Trina she immediately came over to look into the issue on her own time and at no extra cost! It's this kind of service that sets her apart from the others.

Trina is extremely knowledgable and trustworthy. She is very thorough in her inspections, detailed in her review with her clients and is highly aware that even the small details matter!

I will never use another inspector! Thank you Trina!

Simply put, Trina is one of the best inspection I have ever seen! From the first moment you meet her, you can feel her pure enthusiasm to her profession. Each client that have used her services thoroughly enjoyed her professionalism and attention to details to provide the ultimate inspection.

I promise that you own’t be disappointed and that you will recommend her to your circle of influence, friends and family.

House inspection

Trina did the pre-inspection for our house and she really went above and beyond! Not only did she arrive early to take a look around the property, she also stayed late because we had to wait to get into the rental suite - and all on her wedding anniversary, as it turned out! Trina was thorough and knowledgeable, patient and generous with her explanations, and very personable and professional. In fact, the sellers of the property were so impressed with what they overheard that one of them went outside in his socks to get her card. She highlighted areas of concern and answered all of our questions. In addition, she came for a follow-up visit after we had taken possession, and gave us a bunch more useful information-- quite helpful, given that we are first-time owners and given how much of a whirlwind the bidding process had been. We recommend Trina and Need To Know Home Inspections to anyone who needs their home inspected!

Home Inpsection

Trina was a great home inspector ! She was extremely thorough in checking every nook and cranny in the house but also able to zero in on the big important areas where an owner would neglect, such as the roof, the stucco siding, the attic/ crawl space, etc. She gave us a great walk around of the house and pointed out all the issues we needed to know. The inspection was over 4 hours and she worked very hard. We felt very confident about the report, which was very detailed. We highly recommend this company.
