House Inspection

Phil and his partner arrived on time for the appointment and followed health and safety guidelines for COVID-19. Phil walked me through the entire inspection process explaining what he is inspecting and how he performs his inspection. He explained clearly what should be expected from the builder and the exact deficiencies. Everyone was professional and friendly. I had the same opinion for a previous inspection done by Ackerman Inspection and I still have the same opinion to this day. I recommend Ackerman Inspection to anyone for home inspection services.

Home inspection

We hired Acker Homes to do our home inspection since our 1 year is coming up with Tarion. We were extremely impressed with their knowledge of the building codes, real time recommendations and thorough report. This is definitely money well spent since many of the issues found are things homeowners don’t typically know about or can’t see for themselves. We would definitely recommend this company!

Tarion 1-year inspection /warranty claim

Phil completed a thorough inspection and ensured i understood all items he noted as a deficiency. It was simple to apply his notes to the tarion warranty claim and be comfortable nothing was missed.

Acker Home Inspection

I hired Acker Home Inspection I hired Phil Acker to conduct a home inspection for my new Richcraft home. Phil was wonderful to deal with from the very first email/phone call I had with pre-closing concerns. He gave me great advice and his inspection service was extremely thorough and informative. He spent over 2.5 hours at my home with his colleague and inspected every square inch of my home. He alerted me to issues I was not aware of and also explained various things to help me run my home efficiently and safely. He arrived on time, was extremely knowledgeable, and his reported was submitted very promptly. An acquaintance referred Acker Home Inspection to me, and I will recommend his service to anyone and will only use his company again in future.

Home Inspection townhouse

Phil and his team were extremely professional and thorough with their assessment. They also were excellent in explaining their process, and any issues found throughout the house. They followed strict COVID protocols both inside and outside the house. I highly recommend using his services . I will be sure to use them for any future inspections.

You need inspection on a brand new home too

If you think a newly built home doesn’t need inspection, think twice.
I should have got the inspection done within 30 days after possession. Instead I got the inspection done in preparation for the deadline for the one year Tarion warranty.
Acker Home Inspection provided me with thorough analysis and deficiency report and I am confident that I can have the builder follow up with the deficiencies.
Acker Home are two men; I didn’t know there were two gentlemen and I think it just adds more efficiency and therefore time saved on my end too.
I will definitely use their service on our new home that we will move in to this October.
