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!

Residential and Commercial Building Inspection

Arne was professional and we were very satisfied!
He clearly communicated what to expect from beginning to the end of the inspection process. Arne arrived on time and was very thorough in his inspection, documenting each element with notes and photos. He was very knowledgeable and left us feeling confident and like we could make an informed purchasing decision. He provided clear, detailed information about the condition of the property, including deficits and went the extra mile to explain the implications for repair. We were left with a comprehensive written report. We will definitely use him again, and recommend his service.

Home inspection

Arne was prompt and professional. He provided a very detailed report with corresponding pictures. As a result of discovering deficiencies with the property, I was able use the inspection report to renegotiate $5000 off the original accepted offer.

Thank you very much for the review! $5,000 off? That's FANTASTIC! If I recall correctly, using the inspection report I did for you 5 years ago with the previous house, you were also able to negotiate $4,000 off the original offer on that one. It's stories like this that remind me why I love what I do!
