I wanted to email after spending the afternoon with Dave to inspect our potential home in Orillia.   I have never seen a home inspection that was so thorough or professional.  I learned more from this home inspection than I did watching my father finish project after project during my childhood.  Dave took the time to explain all of his concerns from start to finish, taught me what is and is not acceptable about each issue and why they were or weren't a cause for concern. I wanted to go into this project with both eyes open, and after this inspection I feel like we're taking on this project with x-ray vision.

Thank you so much for doing what you do, and I will definitely recommend your business to everyone I know, as well as call for your help in the future. Again, thank you

Hi, Just wanted to let you know that we received the excellent report from Steve, the inspector. He is professional, personable, comprehensive, and a pleasure to work with.

I’ll pass on the report to the builder to have the items corrected.   After everything is fixed up, I would like Steve to come back and check them to make sure the items were fixed properly.

Thanks again.
David
