Professional and informative

We hired Phil to do a new build 30 day inspection. Phil and Randy performed the inspection and were both knowledgeable and professional. They explained everything concisely and focused on key systems. They managed to find some issues that were not obvious but important to find. This was precisely what we were looking for in an inspector and are grateful for their help. I would strongly recommend them.

Worth every penny

We hired Phil to inspect our newly built home in preparation for the 30-day inspection. He and Randy, were thorough, knowledgeable, and pleasant. They knew what issues to look for and found several non-obvious problems that will save us money and headaches in the future. We are very grateful for their help.

Wonderful service by Phil and the team

Phil and team provided were really professional in carrying out the inspection of my home which is nearing second year Tarion warranty. Phil was very helpful in clarifying all the doubts I had and explaining on everything related home inspection, which was very educational for someone like me who is very new to this subject.
Phil and the team looked into every little detail and pointed on all issues, most of which we had not even identified.
Within few minutes of completing the inspection Phil and the team provided a detailed report for our reference highlighting the important points to be raised with Tarion with second year claims. I highly recommend Phil and his team to anyone seeking inspection services.

Home Inspection for Tarion Year-end report

This was second time we hired Phil for our new home 1-year inspection. Last time was 19 years ago. As expected he performed very good job and is so professional and efficient with details for everything for new home inspection. We have received all necessary reports for Tarion's Year-end report, and also additional full report for our personal record. He explained and answered all the questions or concerns we had. Highly recommended! Thanks a lot, Phil.

Thorough Home Inspection & Report

A home purchase is no small investment and Phil made me feel as though he was inspecting his own him. Took time to thoroughly check things, point out small issues, obvious issues and also in the post inspection report (which came within about 5-10 minutes of his departure to my inbox) highighted the priority items to address.

I also appreciated as I shared some changes or modifications I wanted to make, they offered suggestions as to how to make it easier as a DIYer!

Really appreciated the treatment I received, the time they took and the quick report to help me digest all the information to take in!

Thank you, Chelsea! For people purchasing a resale home, the number of decisions to be made and the need to get answers to questions related to the home is stressful. My objective is to help to the greatest degree possible in helping my clients understand the current condition of the home they are considering purchasing.

Great service, very thorough and would definitely use again

Had a great experience. They are very thorough and take the time to answer questions and go above and beyond (literally and figuratively) with the inspection: from roof to the basement. I have full confidence in Aker Home Inspection and will definitely be using them again in the future.

Home Inspection

We hired Acker Home Inspection to inspect our home. We were incredibly happy with the service that they delivered. They were very thorough and professional during the entire time that they were at our home. When we accompanied them during the inspection, they identified obvious issues, and they offered suggestions on how these could be addressed. The reports that they produced for us were comprehensive. These included a thorough assessment of the house, good recommendations to remedy all issues that they observed and many photos that illuminated the issues. I would highly recommend this company's service to anybody who needs a comprehensive home inspection.
