Home inspection

Doyle home inspection was very professional when making the appointment and arrived on time to the new house. They did a very thorough job, including looking closely at the septic bed. They spent several hours with us and the home owner and were instrumental in dropping the price because of certain issues they were able to bring to our attention. The report came back within 24 hours. Very friendly and polite. We would highly recommend their team!

Home inspection

I hired this company to inspect my new home. Nelson and his assistant were punctual, knowledgeable, and professional. I would highly recommend them to inspect your home for a real estate deal or after taking possession of a newly built home.

Home Inspection

I hired home and septic to complete a pre-purchase home inspection. They came out and provided a complete extremely detail report and gave me confidence moving forward with my decision. The entire home inspection took approximately 3 hours to complete and the entire time all members of the team were friendly, and professional while answering all of my first time home buyers questions... I would 100% recommend this company for any inspection needs

Excellent and friendly service

Reg and Nelson are great to deal with, very knowledgeable and have a great attention to detail that is invaluable for a home inspection. They have done two inspections for us and have been quick and thorough each time, for two very different houses. Would not hesitate to call them again.

I wish to thank you for taking the time to provide such a good recommendation. Nelson and I are constantly looking at ways to make the inspection better in order to protect our clients. Country or city, it can be a challenge with changing geological hydrology and hydrogeological conditions. City properties have an edge with both storm and sanitary sewers available.

Home/Property Inspection Metcalfe ON

Had Reg and his team inspect a rural home/septic/property. They were professional thorough and invaluable in their assessment. Every time I called Reg he was ready to answer all my questions. He had the answers and provided the knowledge/answers I needed to make a difficult decision. I highly recommend using Doyle Home Inspections especially if you're looking to purchase a rural property. Reg offered the expertise I needed and offered excellent value going well beyond what was expected. Thank you Reg!

Private sewage system assessment and report.

Amazing customer service!!! I bought a home in Almonte and needed a septic system assessment immediately. Reg Doyle and his team were thorough, professional, friendly, courteous, and highly knowledgeable experts. I've never had a septic system before so Reg explained and showed me what he and his crew were doing in layman's terms so that I could understand the reason behind his recommendations. Reg went over the Assessment Report with me and told me that I could call him at any time if I had further questions. I couldn't be more pleased with his service. I would highly recommend Reg and his company.

Thank you Danna. I have been dealing with Septic systems for over 48 years now. I understand what it is when you have something new. The best way to know how something works is an education on the various components. Understanding is the key to living with and maintaining a key structural component of your house. Best wishes in the years to come and thank you for an amazing recommendation.

Home and Septic Inspection

This is the second time we have used Reg and his team for a home and septic inspection. I would not even think of using anyone else. The entire team are extremely professional, experienced, knowledgeable, thorough, friendly and patient (we had lots of questions). They are never in a rush and take their responsibility seriously. It is very evident they dig deep and explore every nook and cranny gathering all possible information in order to provide the best advice to their clients. We could not have been happier with either one of our experiences. I would highly recommend Reg to anyone who is in need of a home or septic inspection.

Thank you Travis. Those were kind words. We try to inspect a house as if we were the ones buying it.

House and Septic Inspection

I hired Reg and his team to do a house and septic inspection on an older (1971) home I was purchasing.
It took about ten seconds on the phone with Reg to know that he knew his business, inside and out. His knowledge and experience was incredibly helpful, and beneficial when it came to renegotiation with the seller. He was fully transparent about what he could and could not see, and the limits of the inspection.
His notes and inspection report were well-detailed, and he took plenty of time to show me around the home and ensure that I knew what I was getting into.
Since I had him do the septic inspection as well, he brought his brother and grandson. They both provided me more knowledge about septic systems than I ever thought I'd have, and explained things in a way that was easy to understand.
The entire team was very personable and great to work with, and gave me far more knowledge about the house than I expected. I'll definitely recommend them to anyone that asks.

Thank you Adrian for such a good recommendation. I am always learning and every year, I am better inspector. Older homes are interesting but that was a new home when I was working. It is incredible the number of changes that have evolved since that time. Education is the key. Thanks again.

Home inspection for older home

We have used 4 different inspectors while in Ottawa and Reg Doyle is by far our favourite and will be the one we use going forward. He was punctual, very thorough and extremely patient as he explained everything every step of the way. He encouraged questions and even sent us pictures afterwards (47 of them!) This allowed us to see areas that we were unable to see such as the roof and the attic. This was the first time I was able to see the roof of a house we were purchasing for myself :) He also had a thermal imaging camera that gave us information about the insulation, which was important since we were purchasing an older home. This helped us understand where to add extra insulation after we moved in. He seemed very familiar with older homes as well and understood the inner structure. He was very factual and didn't exaggerate or minimize issues (we have had inspectors that have done both in the past). We were very pleased with him and have recommended him to family and friends. It's no surprise he has a 10 rating :)

Dear M.G.:
Thank you for the kind words. I pride my self on understanding the way things were built in the past and knowing the changes that has evolved over the years since the building code was first implemented around 1950. I hope things work out with the new house. Reg

Septic and 2 x Home Inspections

Reg and his crew have done 2 home inspections for us now. In both cases Reg's attention to detail and background explanations have been invaluable in putting issues into context and understanding the fundamentals of a property.

In one instance we were considering a property on well and septic; something which was new to us. Reg took the time to explain the important aspects of system design and operation and really helped understand the issues and process. On the basis of his first inspection for us we were more than happy to see him again for a second inspection when the first sale didn't complete.

Highly recommend Doyle Home Inspections.

Thank you Graham for your kind comments. It was a pleasure doing the inspections for you and I do believe that second property is something you will treasure for a long time. - Reg
