What our clients say

At MIKE HOLMES Inspections we believe in bringing the highest quality and being completely transparent with our clients. We go above minimum code to conduct the most comprehensive and thorough home inspection you can get. Trusted by our clients, we strive to continue to make it right.

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
