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!

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!

Condo Home Inspection

I was in the middle of purchasing a condo in North York and Yuri was able to conduct a home inspection for me on a very short notice. Yuri was punctual and thorough for his inspection work. He also took his time explaining certain functionalities and maintenance tips that would be relevant for me. It was a tight time window all around but Yuri delivered what i was looking for.

Home Inspection

Yuri is a true master of his work. Setting up an appointment date is quick and easy. He is skillful, knowledgable and thorough when inspecting the house that we were considering for purchase. His report is clear, and detailed. It is helpful to have the summary pages of any concerns in the beginning given that these reports often long. His pricing is fair and reasonable given the quality of service that he provides. We would definitely recommend Yuri to all our friends and family.

Inspection- New house (1 year warranty)

Yuri helped us with 1-year warranty inspection for our new house. He is thorough and very detailed. He explained the process thoroughly before the inspection and answered all our questions in details. Yuri highlighted all the deficiencies in detail as did a walk-through of the entire house outside, then inside. He helped us greatly to carefully think through some issues that came up during the inspection and of course to consider them in our 1-year warranty report to Tarion. A detailed 55-page report was produced, that very evening - I cannot comprehend such a quick turnaround on such a large report with photos, analysis, recommendations, course of action, etc.
A home is one of the biggest purchase of your life, don't go for the cheap options, go for the quality. Would recommend Yuri to anyone looking to receive this service.

Catalina, thank you very much for the review and for the highest rating. It was a pleasure to meet you and provide a quality home inspection for you. New houses need inspection as much as the older ones and you made the right choice by exploring the option of the professional home inspection prior to your 1 year warranty submission. I'm happy that my inspection was useful and beneficial to you. All the very best and thank you for choosing Home Inspections 4U!

All star inspection, as usual

I have relied on Yuri for the 50-year houses I purchase. He is professional and thorough. I really appreciate how he takes the time to report on every detail and answer my questions, both during the inspection and after I review his report. The pdf report is incredibly detailed with photos, recommendations, detailed descriptions of issues, and Yuri prioritizes the issues so I can quickly refer to the report to make an informed decision.
5 stars would recommend.

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.
