Home Inspection

I phoned Arne on a Tuesday to see if I could get an inspection done that week. He was able to fit me into his schedule. He showed up at the home on time, totally prepared. The inspection was thorough, and the report was comprehensive. I especially appreciated the fact that he used his FLIR camera to to view heating and heat loss in many parts of the house. After the inspection, he spent a considerable amount of time going over the good, the bad, and the ugly of his findings. He certainly found items that I never would have found on my own. He had lots of suggestions on resolving the deficiencies he located, as well as tips for overall maintenance of the property. The price was as advertised, no surprises there. I would not hesitate on using his services in the future.

Highly Recommend!

We've used other inspectors in the past when buying a home and Arne is by far the most thorough, concise and professional. A summary and full report was provided after the inspection, along with multiple pictures. The home sellers had some hurt feelings / defensiveness about items on the report (they had neglected important maintenance over the course of several years) and were trying to deny and mislead on what was found. Despite the undermining accusations, Arne very diplomatically explained his findings and was able to fully support the deficiencies with his knowledge base and pictures that were taken at the time of inspection. He clearly enjoys his job and takes pride in what he does. We will most definitely recommend Arne and would absolutely use his services again.

Home inspection

I really appreciated the job West Coast Inspections completed for me. Arne was respectful, prompt, and very thorough. The previous owners to my home were present when Arne did the inspection. They were very impressed as well. They expressed regret that they had already had an inspection done by another company on their purchased property. I would highly recommend West Coast Inspections!

Exactly what we needed

Couldn't be happier! Arne from West Coast Home Inspections has now done two inspections on two different condos for my wife and me. We love his professionalism, his knowledge, his attention, he was very thorough, and he was a pleasure to work with personally. His skill set and professional experience allow him to speak efficiently and appropriately with (in our case) condo buildings' mechanical managers, but he has the ability to translate that information into something more understandable to the average person when it comes time to preparing his report. We received our reports immediately after our inspections, with photos and explanations outlining what was in good condition, what needed attention, and what was flat-out deficient. We'll definitely use him again in the future, and we've already recommended him to our family and friends.

Home Inspection

Arne was timely and competent with his inspection service which was conducted quite thoroughly and efficiently using quality instruments.
He was also quite helpful in answering frequent questions during the inspection. A multitude of photos were taken to back up his comments and recommendations.

I would not hesitate to use Arne on future projects and gladly recommend his service.

Chilliwack Home Inspection

My wife and I hired Arne to inspect our potential home purchase in Chilliwack - we knew the house needed work, however we wanted to get a detailed list of defects and repairs needed.

The booking process was very easy and Arne sent a detailed confirmation email quickly, with a contract and list of how to prepare for the inspection.

On the day of inspection he showed up promptly on time and went to work inspecting every nook and cranny of the building. He took many photos during the inspection, and was even able to squeeze his arm and camera into the 12” high crawlspace to identify the location of the water shut off valves.

We found him to be very professional, polite and easy to speak to during the entire process.

At the end of the inspection, we were given a review of the major items and overall condition. Later that evening, we received a highly detailed report by email, with photographs and descriptions of all the deficiencies.

To say we were impressed is an understatement. Arne surpassed our expectations and we will be referring him to friends and family at every opportunity!
