Thorough and Professional

Our experience with Carson Dunlop was a positive one. From first point of contact through to receiving the detailed report following the inspection, we were very impressed.

Our inspector was patient with us, allowing us to follow him through the inspection and ask plenty of questions. During the stress of the home buying process, Carson Dunlop helped to provide us much needed reassurance and comfort with our investment.

Great home inspections

I have used Carson Dunlop several times for home inspections, dating from buying my first house in toronto back in the 1980s.

In my experience they are invariably professional and knowledgeable. They charge a fair fee for their excellent work.

Alan Carson is still at the helm and ensuring a rare continuity of honest and reasonably priced professionalism. He returns phone calls promptly, which in itself rare these days.

I strongly recommend them.

Home Inspection

I am very impressed with Carson Dunlop & Associates Home Inspections. From the moment the inspection appointment was booked I was confident that I had hired the right company. The inspector arrived on time and well prepared and was extremely thorough. The physical inspection appeared to be very detailed and the inspector was quite knowledgeable.
I received the inspection report with no delay and found it to be as I observed the inspector, detailed and thorough. While detailed, it was still an easy read and it was easy to follow
I have no reservations about highly recommending Carson Dunlop & Associates to anyone looking for a home inspection

pre listing home inspection

Had a freehold detached home in the east end (Scarborough area) that my group was preparing to list. Was previously aware of Carson Dunlop's reputation for thoroughness. What I found refreshing was the professional conduct, timely/punctuality of the assigned inspector, clarity of their explanation of matters identified and most importantly, their willingness to be completely accountable for their statements and findings.

Home Inspection

Hal was the home inspector that was assigned to inspect my home. He was very informative and I learned many new things that I wouldnt have ever known. He also tells me what he is looking for and what it would be like if he found something out of the ordinary or concerning.
