Home Inspection

Egbert with Diamond Home Inspections is fantastic. He is thorough, professional, extremely knowledgeable about everything home related and more then happy to answer your questions - plus, he's not too good for a good old dad joke! Would recommend him to do our home inspection 100%!

Home inspection

He was a great knowledgeibl person, he did detail work one by o e and explained all the concerns and all the issue needed to be looked at. He spent about four hours starting from outside then inside upstairs, downstairs then the basement. He finally put the report together the same day very detailed with supporting pictures and references with governornment codes etc...
I would definitely recommend any one who needs a house inspection to go through him.
Thank you very much.

I am grateful for the review. It is generous and kind. It important to me people understand that code is the most dangerous you are legally allowed to build a home. Code is not a goal but a bare minimum starting point.

Home inspection

Edgar is very knowledgeable. He really made us feel very confident in making our first home purchase. He was also able to teach us a lot about how to maintain our home for the future. I would 100% recommend Edgar to anyone looking for a home inspector, and would use him again.

I'm grateful you took the time to write a review for me! A home inspection is such a great opportunity to learn about maintenance and renovation potential when you are able to attend. I think you'll enjoy your home.

A home inspection well done

Great service and professional service. I would highly recommend Egbert to friends and family.

Just like all other reviews online, I was provided with a very detailed and professional report. Egbert also took the time to explain every finding on the report. I have used quite a few home inspectors before and Diamond Home Inspection is bar none the best home inspection company I came across. I am confident that anyone used his home inspection service would agree the paramount quality of service they received.

Home Inspection

Diamond Home Inspection is excellent and especially fantastic if your a first time home buy like myself. Friendly, professional, and thorough. I would absolutely recommend this company. Egbert takes his time, and encourages you to inspect the home with him. He patiently and clearly answers all and any questions you may have. He takes photos and prepares a report detailing everything you go went over together in the home, and emails it to you. Very happy and relieved in my mind with my choice in a home inspector.

Hi Peggy. Thanks for taking the time during the chaotic home buying experience to write a review. Who knew it was that hard to buy a house? Well, OK, Maybe your Realtor did.

Second inspection with Egbert : Another perfect job!

This is the second time I hire Egbert and the work done was again perfect and met all my expectations.
highly recommend him , no doubt about it.
The first time he saved us from buying a condo with electrical issues in the unit and structure issues in the building.

Nice to meet you this time Paulo. Great deals always come with caveats. Even when you buy a condo you are buying a job. Glad this one worked out!

Got an Inspection. Saved money on home.

We hired Egbert to inspect a home we were purchasing. We were reluctant to hire anyone as all the inspectors we've had in the past have been a waste of money. Egbert was not.

He came to the house prepared with all the equipment he needed to look at our place. He had a critical eye for the items that were going to cause us the most problems and require attention (either immediately or down the road). He was patient and answered all our questions and explained why something was a big problem that had to be addressed immediately and what were items to watch and fix later.

We got his report the same day. It was detailed with both text and pictures and when we provided it to the seller we were able to negotiate the price of our house down $7500.00 from what they had agreed on based on the issues he found. We now also have an idea of what priority we should be tackling the numerous items he found.

He was funny (come prepared with Dad jokes!), patient, detailed, professional, and prompt. I wouldn't hesitate to hire Egbert again and would recommend him to anyone looking to buy a property.

Thanks for the great review Katrine. When you're buying a house you're buying a job. I'm sure you'll find great uses for all the money you saved.

How can you tell if a joke is a dad joke? The punchline is a-pparent!

COVID PROTOCOLS IN PLACE - Get it inspected - safely!

When you are buying a house you are buying a job. Invest in a Diamond Home Inspection and make an informed choice when buying your new home.
I am committed to providing the best inspection experience for my clients. I am responsible for giving you an understanding of the scope of the work that you are looking at buying. Some of that depends on how it was built, some of that depends on how well it was maintained/renovated. I perform a visual, non-invasive inspection of the condition of the home, so you can make an informed purchasing decision. Using my training, tools and experience to read the story of how the home was built and how it was maintained. Every house will have "issues", doesn't matter if it is a "new" house or a "used" house. The question then becomes - so what? Is this a major problem now? Is it something that will only get worse or is it something that is no longer changing? Is it is a big deal or red herring? Some of the answers will depend on you, your patience, ability, monetary situation and/or your plans for the home, others- like safety issues, are self explanatory.
I have a background in construction, internationally recognized training, national inspector association affiliations expert tools and a thirst for continued education.

May is Deck Safety Month. Be sure to get a deck inspection before the summer entertainment season!
