Great service, thorough and meticulous review, well and carefully explained at each step, lots of good information. Report provided is comprehensive, easy to understand and professionally presented. friendly service, with a very objective tone, no news delivered in an alarmist way even when there were red flags.

Home inspection

My girlfriend and I hired Phil and Randy for our 30 day home inspection and were very satisfied with the service they provided. From the response to my initial email looking for information about home inspections to the actual inspection itself they were amazing. I received prompt responses whenever I contacted to them and they showed up on time and were able to find an availability on short notice. They took the time to help us really understand the different elements and systems of our home and provide the information needed to submit our 30 day warranty claim.

1 Year TARION Inspection

I received a flyer in the mail for Acker Home Inspection. I did my research and was pleasantly surprised with the overall positive reviews online. I went ahead and booked my inspection with Phil Acker & it was an absolute pleasure from the moment we spoke over the phone until the moment he left my home at the end of the inspection.

Phil was right on time, very polite, attentive to detail, & takes his time to explain each and every aspect of the inspection & takes care not to rush any part.

As a matter of convenience, Phil also provides Radon Testing Kits, which I was looking to acquire to test for Radon in my new home.

Phil also has his report ready & sent to you via email before he even leaves your home (how convenient!). The report is also done in the same format as that of TARION's online submission, thereby making it a very stress-free experience to submit the TARION warranty.

Overall, I would not hesitate to recommend Acker Home Inspection for any of your Home Inspection Requirements.

Year 1 TARION home inspection

Phil and his co-inspector showed up exactly on time. Spent a few minutes explaining the process and then started work in parallel. By the time the review was complete, the report was typed up, ready and emailed to my account! Very professional and they answered some other questions that I had. Impressed!

Year 1 - home inspection

I wanted to take minute and thank you for learning experience when you performed a one year Tarion home inspection for us. We thought you provided detailed information on what you were looking for and how it related to the Ontario building codes. Your explanations of the issues you found were straight forward and easy to understand. The reports and associated photos made it easy for us to include in our online submission to Tarion.

We would highly recommend your services to our neighbours and friends looking for a professional home inspector!!

Home inspection

I was most impressed by how well they communicated various issues around the home during an inspection. Even after the inspection, they were great for answering follow-up questions. They provide a great report write-up and will make sure you are comfortable understanding all the info they provide.

New Home Inspection

Phil and Randy's services surpassed my expectations. As a first time homebuyer, I didn't know what I was getting into with a pre-construction home. Phil and Randy were extremely helpful in preparing me for the Tarion 30-day submission. They were professional with their process and explained all the defects that were found with the home. I highly recommend Acker Home Inspection.
