TARION - 30 Days Home Inspection (Half Moon Bay - Barrhaven)

This is the second time I have asked Phil, from Acker Home Inspection, to conduct a home inspection for one of my homes. This time, Phil did a 30 days inspection for my new house that I purchased through Mattamy Builder. Phil and Randy are very helpful, very professional, very polite as well as meticulous and conscientious about checking everything. They went through the entire house (exterior, interior, heating and cooling system, air conditioner, every single corner in the house..etc). After every step, Phil sat down with me and showed me all the defects that he found in my house that he recorded on his camera. He explained exactly what issues he came across and gave me his advice about how to address the issue. Both Phil and Randy went above and beyond to ensure my satisfaction and that my home would be brought to its full potential. Thank you so much Phil and Randy for another amazing job!! If you are looking for a home inspector, I would recommend Phil Acker as he is one of the best ones out there in this field!! Thanks again Phil and Randy for your help with my house inspection!

Tarion 1yr home inspection

Mr. Acker and his associate were able to accommodate my schedule and arrived promptly and prepared. They were very professional and detail oriented. Mr. Acker talked me through the process and took detailed pictures and notes and asked for history of certain events. This was not a cookie cutter process but a joint discovery.

Once the thorough inspection was completed, i was provided with several detailed documents that complimented what I was to submit for my 1year inspection.

Very pleased and satisfied with the service provided and highly recommend.

1-year Tarion report home inspection

Phil and Randy were total pros and easy to work with. They explained both their procedures and issues they found clearly, and caught a number of problems I’d have missed myself.

Professionalism, attention to detail and great service

We hired Phil and his team to conduct several inspections of our newly built home. They were on time, courteous and professional every time and gave us plenty of value for our money. Phil is a wealth of knowledge regarding home construction and was very patient answering all of our questions. His attention to detail is second to none and he and his team were very helpful in the context of our multiple inspections. Their reports are detailed and were helpful in the context of addressing certain issues with our builder. We highly recommend Acker Home Inspection to anyone who wants a thorough, detailed and professional home inspection.

Home Inspection -for new home

Phil and his partners are very professional. Phil explains the scope and progress of home inspection. He conducts his inspection thoroughly. He provides the inspection reports and photos in electronic format. He also provides Tarion 30 days form paper copy for submission and other relevant information such as Tarion Key Reference Documents. He shows his care and respect that he brings his own indoor shoes while he works inside my house. I am glad that I made the right choice to have Phil conducting my home inspection.

Very nice service, recommend!

Phil provides a very thorough inspection, takes his time to explain every finding.
And at the end of process he even prints the entire report right away. We also receive a digital version of everything documented (pictures and forms generated by Phil).

Phil's services were very helpful and I'd definitely recommend!
