home inspection

Yuri was extremely thorough and checked everything from top to bottom in our home inspection.

Yuri took us through the house and explained everything he found as well as how certain things work such as the furnace humidifier etc.

I would highly recommend him to anyone.

Home Inspection before buying a house

Yuri did a home inspection for us about two weeks ago. My feedback is mixed - see below.

Positive side:
First of all, Yuri identified a serious issue (Kitec plumbing in a renovated part of the house) and pointed out that, basically, it makes the house uninsurable.
Also, Yuri came at a very short notice, thoroughly inspected the house, answered all our questions, and produced a detailed and clear report.

Worrisome side:
In general, my impression is that for Yuri making the process of selling/buying a house less stressful for his clients is not among his priorities.
We were surprised to find out that our broker and Yuri were in an open personal conflict. It’s OK, not all people get along well. But I found myself in a situation when I had to explain to Yuri the specifics of our transaction (owners are old people concerned about COVID and their agent is their daughter, who strongly protects their interests), and to ask him to follow the protocol established by the owners and their agent. It helped to some extent…

Thank you, Leo, for the time you took to write this review. Although, I'm surprised at the rating that you found as appropriate for my service when, according to your own admission, was top of the line in finding and identifying deficiencies. It is too bad that I didn't know who was your realtor, as otherwise I would not come to do your inspection. My personal conflict with this agent has absolutely nothing to do with the outstanding service you received. I'm not going to discuss this here as her behaviour is now before the TREB discipline committee. As for the Covid19 protocol... It is not the sellers' agent that established it. The protocol was established by OREA and we, as professionals involved in the Real estate transaction, are required to follow it. This protocol does not require wearing masks and gloves outside but only inside the property. And that what I did. The loathsome behaviour of your agent didn't help a bit in following this protocol. I'm glad my service was at high value to you, according to your own email:

Hi Yuri,

Thank you for a great, very informative report!

Best regards,

Leo

Home Inspection

We have been referring Yuri of Home Inspections 4 U to our clients and agents for a number of years. More recently, we had Yuri do a home inspection on a property we purchased. We cannot speak highly enough of our experience with him. Extremely knowledgeable and thorough, with an impressive attention to detail, Yuri is the consummate professional and beyond compare. Due to a time constraint, Yuri went above and beyond to ensure we had a detailed written report within a couple of hours of the inspection. We can cannot thank him enough for his impeccable service! We have no hesitation in recommending him and will definitely be using him again for any future purchases.

Thorough Home Inspection

Yuri inspected and found items that normal inspectors wouldn't bother checking. He provided a clear and comprehensive report on the same day of inspection. I'm really happy with his service and extreme professionalism.

Home energy inspection

This review was long overdue as the service was completed last year. I apologies it took so long. I needed to change the furnace and my heating contractor recommended I get an energy inspection to be eligible for the rebate from Enbridge. He gave me the name of Yuri. Turns out Yuri were a home inspector who inspected my house when I bought it 4 years ago. I was very happy with his service at that time. And now I can confirm that he is a very knowledgeable energy inspector as well. He provided an impeccable service explaining every upgrade that I had to do. I didn’t know that I had to do other upgrades to qualify for the rebate. Yuri laid out all my options and explained in great detail the benefits of replacing water heater tank with tankless unit and improving air leakage in the house. He also conducted pressure test using specialized equipment and pointed out areas where the house was losing heat. After all the work was completed he conducted a follow up visit to verify all the upgrades and submitted application to Enbridge on my behalf. Again I was very happy with the service and highly recommend Yuri from Home Inspections 4U for all your home inspection needs. Natalie

Best Man for the Job

Yuri's services were best in class from start to finish. Yuri took the time prior to our house inspection to walk us through the process, answer questions and provide advice.

Yuri was very accommodating and made himself available on very short notice which was greatly appreciated.

During the inspection Yuri was incredible thorough and professional. He took his time to explain all his findings to us as we went along - it was very informative and educational. Yuri left no stone unturned and provided a detailed report.

I'd highly recommend Yuri - you won't be disappointed.

Home Inspection for purchaser

When buying a home it pays to get yourself the best home inspector you can find. I did a lot of research and decided that Yuri would be the best man for the job. And indeed he was. I know the exact status of the home's condition. I also know the approx cost of repairs and upcoming maintenance so that there are no hefty surprises in the future. Report is very detailed and pictures are accurate. Yuri is easy to talk to and will explain anything that you have questions on. Thanks once again Yuri!

My pleasure, Evette! Thank you for the time you took to write a review and for the highest rating. It is so important that people will do a proper research before hiring a home inspector. Much like you did, where experience and education is what matters, and not the inspection fee. If you have any questions down the road, please do not hesitate to call me. All the best in your new home!

Whole house inspection

We contacted Yuri to have a whole house inspection with thermo imaging for our piece of mind. Yuri was very detailed through out his inspection, and provided us lots of knowledge and information. I was impressed by the fact that even though there was snow on the roof he still managed get up to the roof to inspect a problematic area. Great work and really loved his detailed report which we think we can use as a benchmark.

Tips for selecting a good home inspector from the article in Toronto Star:

Do your homework: Ask savvy people for recommendations and settle on an inspector before getting caught up in the stress of buying or selling. Inspectors should have serious experience in the building trades, errors and omissions insurance, and, at the very least, Registered Home Inspector, National Certificate Holder or Certified Master Inspector credentials.

It's no warranty: Some have sued successfully when inspectors have been wildly inaccurate about a home's structure and mechanicals, and the costs of necessary repairs. But inspectors can't break holes in walls or peel shingles and siding from a house. A report is an analysis based on a largely visual examination. Read the contract carefully.

Who works for whom? Buyers should be wary of reports done for vendors and vice-versa. Inspectors should be impartial third parties, but it's an unregulated business. Some may be willing to sacrifice objectivity to help a sale. Some may have inappropriately close relationships with real-estate agents.

The big stuff: Demand a clear statement on the foundation and structural integrity and estimates of repair costs. Attic mould, signs of basement leakage, substandard wiring or insulation materials such as vermiculite, asbestos and urea formaldehyde can disqualify you from a mortgage or insurance. How long till the house needs a new roof, furnace or windows? Find out what costs to deduct from an offer.

Seller beware: Having your home inspected before listing it can head off untimely surprises. It can let you be up front with buyers or enable you to seek good contractors to get the work done at a fair price. Pre-listing inspections can also help vendors rebut dubious claims from buyers' inspectors.

The bottom line: A typical home should take two to three hours to inspect, covering 400 checks, and cost in the $400 to $600 range. Be leery of an inspector who offers discounts or to fix problems he finds.

Only those inspectors, who charge a professional fee, do a real professional job. Everyone else is looking around.
