Home inspection

We had a very good experience with Vahn's inspection of our house. His response was swift, he was timely in booking and his visit was thorough and informational. Every question we had was answered and we have a very good idea of our home systems now. Grateful for good work & highly recommending.

Thorough inspection, Detailed report

I used the website to book a home inspection online and got a call back within 2 hours to finalize the details. Vahn was extremely helpful and gave me all the details on how and what to expect the day of the inspection.

On the day, Vahn was extremely punctual (even though I had put a wrong address on the form :) ) and started the inspection right away. He was very open and we discussed every step of the way providing me with a wealth of tips and gotchas along the way. I really really appreciated his patience, friendliness and willingness to provide detailed feedback on every little detail and question I had.

Once the inspection was complete I felt I had a much better understanding of the state of the property I was buying. Less than 24 hours after, I received his full report, a whopping 50 pages of details, notes, pictures and recommendations describing everything we've seen the day before (and no, it's not that the house had a million issues, it's just that there was a lot of detail and effort put into every little aspect of the inspection and report)

Incredibly satisfied with his service and recommend him with no hesitations for your home inspection.

Thank you Vahn!

Alex.

Home Inspection

We had Vahn do our home inspection and couldn't be more pleased. He was extremely thorough and identified some key areas that needed to be rectified prior to closing the purchase. We even had him do the thermal inspection and found a leak that otherwise would have been missed! Would definitely recommend him to anyone purchasing a home. Our home was 6000 sq ft.

Thank you for the great feedback Nabeel. I appreciate you taking the time to post a review on the home inspection performed. I'm glad you decided to do the full thermal scan as well. Without it, that water leak wouldn't have been identified since it wasn't visible to the naked eye. Good call! Get in touch if you have any questions, I'm here to help.

Home Inspection March 1 2021

Solex was hired to do an inspection on this newly built townhouse
in the Avenue Rd and Lawrence area. Having not witnessed a full inspection before I can say I was very impressed with the attention to detail and the technology used to confirm if there was heat loss, water damage, etc. Solex provided a very detailed report within 24 hours for us to review which went a long way towards increasing our confidence that the property did not just look good from the outside but was also soundly constructed and mechanically up to spec. I would encourage anyone buying a property to have it inspected.

Home Inspection on 1890s Old Toronto Home

A long overdue review, but you can't forget an amazing experience and thorough job well done.

We had the opportunity to work with Vahn in the spring of 2019. He thoroughly examined our home and was able to clearly outline numerous deficiencies and provided solutions.

His extensive report has been absolutely helpful and every home owner should get one completed. It has been incredibly insightful, useful and worth every penny.

Vahn is an absolute pleasure to work with. He is knowledgeable, trustworthy, patient and professional. I have the utmost confidence in recommending Vahn without any reservations.

5-star Home Inspection for New Build

If you are looking for an excellent home inspection, I would recommend Vahn to you and anyone else, on the spot.

Vahn greatly exceeded my expectations by demonstrating these qualities:
1) Quality: He was very thorough and spotted many details. While this is what you would expect of any inspector, the details were often very small and could've been easily missed. Also, the overall volume of details found was much higher than I expected.
2) Communication: Despite all the details, he took the time to explain each and every one of them to us. For example, when showing us the HRV, he explained the predecessors to HRVs in order to better help us understand the problem it was solving.
3) Timeliness: He showed up early and began inspecting the exterior proactively. This ended up being important because the inspection ultimately went beyond the original timeframe. After the inspection, he sent over the report well ahead of the stated SLA timeframe.
4) Attitude: Perhaps above all, Vahn was really friendly and was genuinely passionate about his work. As someone unfamiliar with the inner workings of a house, I thoroughly enjoyed talking to and learning from him.

The outcome was two-fold:
1) A report that we converted into a 60-item list that our seller agreed to fix. That's real $ value.
2) Psychological confidence in our investment, which has its own intangible value.

If you're looking for an A+ home inspector, go with Vahn.

Excellent Service

Vahn was extremely professional, thorough and gave us piece of mind in our new home. He was great at explaining each item during the walk through and helped us identify some immediate work to prevent more costly issues later on. Also really appreciated how quickly he provided the comprehensive report. Would highly recommend.

I am a returning customer, and I believe it can tell you all!But to be explicit: Vahn is very knowledgeable, always on-time, detail-oriented, smart, and professional, he uses adequate types of equipment and he is very friendly as well. I received my report less than 24 hours after the inspection and I am a very happy customer, again! I'd definitely recommend Solex Group to anyone needing a home inspection. Thanks!

Home Inspection for a 20+ Year Old Home

This was my first time doing a home inspection and Vahn was thoroughly detailed and informative when he addressed the issues that were found. He gave me very comprehensive explanations on the cause and effect of the issues and offered unbiased suggestions on how to remedy the problems. The entire service lasted 3.5 hours where I opted for the extended inspection because of the thermal imaging scan, which gave me a greater peace of mind in regards to any cold/hot spots in the house that needed to be remedied.

It was a great experience overall and I highly recommend his services for anyone needing a home inspection! Don't look elsewhere, Vahn is definitely the guy to go to!
