All of my inspections are done to the Ontario Association of Certified Home Inspectors Standards of Practice and I follow the Code Of Ethics.

“Iain made buying our first home a very pleasant experience.  His report was very detailed and easy to follow. Walked us through the entire home, answered all our questions, and was very knowledgeable. He offered excellent advice on how to fix minor issues as well as tips on how to maintain our home to prevent problems down the road. Would use again on our next home purchase. Thanks Iain!”

“My fiancée and I were looking for a house in Ottawa and we hired Iain to do our home inspection prior to submitting an offer. Iain arrived early, in uniform and with all appropriate equipment necessary to do the home inspection. He provided a thorough inspection the home’s interior and exterior and provided us with his findings throughout the inspection. He was also able to maintain confidentiality and demonstrate professionalism, despite the conflict of having two home inspections scheduled at the same time. Following the inspection, Iain provided myself and my real estate agent a quick summary of his findings; a recommendation that we should purchase the house; and that he would provide us with a detailed report via email the next day. The next day we received a detailed and comprehensive report, with pictures, code violations and possible timelines that things would need to be reassessed and/or renovated. Unfortunately, we were outbid for this home and we look forward to using Iain for any future home inspections that we may require.”

“We were extremely happy with Iain’s professionalism and his approach to his work and his knowledge about the building industry. His detailed inspection and his thorough report was most appreciative. He went above and beyond to ensure that every part of the house was inspected, and he managed to find concerns that the previous inspector missed a couple of weeks prior. I would highly recommend Iain’s services to anyone in need of a thorough home inspection done.”
