First Time Buyer Home Inspection

Egbert was great as a home inspector. Fast response and great communication. He explained all the costs and processes up front and the purpose of the inspection. Explained things to a first time home buyer. Would recommend to anyone buying their first home.

Home inspection

I used Diamond for my first home inspection in Conventry Hills. Egbert was really professional and very good at his job, he tried to explain everything to me during the inspection. I really recommend him to anyone who is looking for good home inspector.

Home Inspection

Diamond home inspections was incredible. Egbert was most professional throughout his inspection. He was very thorough and knew all the code and building standards. His report was detailed and provided pictures of every item discussed with detailed explanation of the issue and recommendation to resolve the issue. I was referred to Egbert by two other homeowners who said he was the best they had worked with. He showed up early and got me the report on the same day. I highly recommend.

Egbert of Diamond Home Inspection is worth it

Egbert of Diamond Home Inspection is a life saver. He saved me from buying a 3 year old home in Carstairs, Alberta with 3 latent deficiencies. More so, I hired him for 6 home inspections (that is why the home inspection cost is high) done on specific milestone activities on a new built and he recommended a licensed plumber and electrician re the new built. His construction background is an asset. The home builder in Carstairs, Alberta is less then competent, skilled , professional and Diamond Home Inspection reports are extremely detailed, documented, to the point and, if need be, he will state that the deficiency is substandard, poor workmanship, or, if warranted, he will state that the work done does not meet manufacturer's requirements, standards given the home owner the necessary ammunition to fight the legal battle. BEST VALUE FOR YOUR MONEY.

Thank you for the review Suzanne. This has certainly been an experience for you as we worked on your new home. Finding structural concerns early in the game was not surprising (glad we got them rectified) but what was a surprise was the number of things that the municipal safety code officers missed (like the floor/beam structural deficiencies above windows, and the lack of head clearance in the stairwell). Glad I could help you!

Inspection and structural assessment of house

Egbert from Diamond Home Inspection inspected the condition of the structural components supporting the floor and main wall in the dining room area of our 35-year old house. There is some uneveness in the floor and displacent in the wall. Egbert inspected the supporting structural system thoroughly and provided an assessment of the cause and corrective measures. A job well done.

Amazing home inspection service

Egbert is the best house inspector I've ever had. He has incredible attention to detail during the inspection and his report is so detailed, helpful and easy to understand. I would recommend Egbert to anyone.
His report helped greatly in follow up negotiations and more importantly, I feel a lot more comfortable about the house I'm buying.
Come with a joke though, he likes to hear and exchange jokes during the inspection.

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.

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!
