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

Yuri inspected a home in Newmarket for our client. He is the most detailed and professional home inspector I have ever worked with. He clearly knows his business and I highly recommend him.
Thank you Yuri for helping us to protect our clients interests.

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.

home inspection

Yuri was very professional about this work, not only knowledgeable about all the home component, he is also willing to explain to me all the detail he put on the report, specially in his electrician expertise. He gave us advice and recommendations on future repair and prevention. Very thorough and detail oriented from the basement to the second floor. Possesses the necessary tools and equipment to detect hidden flaws and damages in the house. Very Satisfied with the service provided by Yuri. Thank you!

Thank you very much, Tony, for the review and for the highest rating. It was not an easy inspection and the items that were uncovered do not present in every home. Therefore I was extremely happy to be able to provide you with all the details and put the things in prospective. Although, my fee was higher than other inspectors, I'm confident I was able to provide you a lot more in return. Thank you for trusting my expertise.

Home inspector - highly recommend

We worked with Yuri on two occasions during our house search. He is very knowledgeable in all areas of the home including electrical, plumbing and structure; however he also knows when additional expertise is required to ensure the safety and accuracy of his report.

We highly recommend Yuri and will continue to tell others about his services.

Home Inspection

Yuri came in such short notice on a holiday to do the inspection for me.

He was very thorough and professional and took the time to inform and teach me about my future home. He made sure I was part of the inspection and that I understood what he was looking at/for. I appreciated that he wanted to have me involved and did not mind me asking questions.

The next day, he included a very informative report and inserted specific pictures of my future home with detailed descriptions of what needed to be done.

I would definitely use him again and suggest him to my friends!

Home inspection

Yuri was recommended to us by a family member when we were looking to buy a home in Scarborough. Yuri was very comprehensive in his home inspection, and we are very pleased with the service he gave us. He was punctual and friendly. It was very easy to set up an appointment, we called him a couple of days in advance. He was very thorough and knowledgeable throughout the whole process. He answered all of our questions and took his time during the inspection. The report came the same day and we were very pleased with the result. Thank you Yuri for a pleasant experience during the inspection and for helping us make the decision on purchasing our new home! We would not hesitate to recommend your company to all of our friends and family!

Air Quality Inspection...

We recently hired Yuri to do an air quality inspection and we weren't disappointed with his service. He was quick to respond, quick to come to the house to do the inspection and quick to send us the report. He was extremely thorough and did exactly what he said he was going to do...don't hesitate to book Yuri for an inspection, he is top notch!

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.
