Home inspection

Tristan was both very professional and detailed in his inspection. It was clear that he takes great pride in his work and wants to ensure that his clients are satisfied with the end results. I have heard many horror stories about home inspectors cutting corners but would recommend Tristan to anyone. He was clear with me what he could and could not examine, and went over everything with me once he was complete. While the property was in good shape, he did find a find a few things that the owners were not even aware of themselves. (all relatively minor)

Home Inspection

As a young couple buying their first home it was important for us to ensure we had a thorough and experienced home inspector!

After interviewing about 10 other home inspectors we were most impressed with Tristan's background, experience, his approach to home inspections and his honesty...now we know we made the right choice in hiring him!

Tristan went above and beyond for us when he spent 4 hours doing a comprehensive home inspection for a house we intended to purchase. He inspected every accessible nook and cranny of the home including going on the roof and crawling inside the attic!

He was very knowledgeable and took the time to explain every component of the home to us with care and patience and answered all the questions we had.

Tristan was upfront and honest with us. He did not try to undermine or sugar-coat issues but he also did not blow issues out of proportion. He was ultimately working for US to make sure we were informed about the condition of the house based on his visual inspection (he does not have any interest in whether the house gets sold or not and is not affiliated with any realtors). He also made recommendations about what further (more invasive) investigations might need to be done to give us more comfort in making a decision.

Unfortunately/fortunately, whichever way you look at it, Tristan pointed out a number of more serious issues which we did not see in our previous visit to the house that ultimately helped us decide to walk away from the sale. Tristan was very sympathetic about the tough decision we had to make, but made us feel very good about it in the end.

He was AMAZING all around. Professional, knowledgeable, caring and in the end saved us potentially tens of thousands of dollars in remedial work. I would highly recommend Tristan to anyone and will use him again when we need him!

Thanks Tristan :)

Thank you Ines, it was a pleasure to have you as a client!

I am happy you were impressed with the level of detail provided, since my number 1 priority is informing my clients about the current condition of their prospective home! In this case you likely saved yourself much time and $$$!

Home inspection

Tristan inspected a property that I intended to buy. His work is thorough and comprehensive. He identified a lot of issues that I could not possibly know. Most importantly, Tristan found out water leak in the main bathroom. At the end I didn't buy the property, avoided a dangerous investment based on Tristan's findings. I would strongly recommend him to anyone who wants to have a serious home inspection!

Home Inspection

Tristan did a great job on completing a home inspection on a preowned home. His report is very thorough and includes pictures of the problem areas. He provided us with good advice on the repairs and maintenance that is required. He completed the report that day as we were pressed for time on closing the deal. His information allowed us to make an amendment to the agreement to purchase to have the seller complete some of the work required. We now know what we will need to fix after taking possession. I would highly recommend using his services.

Existing home inspection.

Tristian proved to be very knowledgeable, through and friendly when inspecting our first home purchase. He answered questions honestly, and was happy to have us go with him throughout the inspection. The report arrived the next day as promised; it was well organized and easy to understand. The photos helped us keep track of which areas of the house will need attention first. He was punctual, came prepared and completed the job within the expected time frame. Highly recommended!

30 day Tarion Inspection

Tristan spent over 4 hours inspecting every detail and provided a very comprehensive report to use for the 30 day tarion warranty. Tristan identified a number of deficiencies that I had totally missed. I was very happy with the service. And result.

Very thorough home inspector

Tristan should change his name to Thorough. Tristan inspected a 100 year old home for me and his attention to detail brought out defects in the house that were severe and not apparent at first glance. Tristan is very knowledgeable, appears to love what he does, is punctual and professional to a T. One very minor area of improvement would be to give a better estimate on how long the report would take to write up so we can manage expectations better during a negotiation with the sellers. That being said, we were very happy with the service we received and would hire Tristan again.

Thank you, I do love very much what I do, and doing a thorough inspection for my clients is priority #1! That house had some rather interesting findings that we did not expect to see (but are very glad we did!), and as such, the report took some extra time to prepare.

House Inspection

We are so glad that we get your service. You did a thorough assessment of the house and the issues that you pointed would be a nightmare if we just move cuz assumed everything is fine.
We will definitely recommend you to our friends.

Home Inspection

We retained Tristan Hall of Hallway Home Inspections to do an inspection on an older home we were considering purchasing. Tristan was very thorough during the inspection and did not rush through the inspection at any point. He noticed various issues that were not apparent to us and would have cost us a significant amount of money to fix. He explained the urgency of fixing each of these issues in person and in his report.
Tristan provided a detailed report with recommendations after doing further research into some of the issues he found so that we had the most up to date information and recommendations possible. Tristan was a pleasure to communicate with, explained his findings and concerns to us without being asked, and answered any additional questions we had knowledgeably as he inspected the property.
