Home Inspection

We were very happy with the inspection, it was detailed, thorough, and we learned a lot about the home. We received a quality report on the same day of the inspection. Thank you

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!

Garage Inspection

We had our garage inspected after noticing some water staining on the drywall. Egbert came out and did the inspection. He was very professional and explained everything he was noticing and his initial thoughts. He was extremely knowledgeable and even had some great blonde jokes. The inspection report we received was easy to understand and very thorough. I would highly recommend Diamond Home Inspection to anyone needing some piece of mind.

Very Professional, very detailed and gave great advice

Egbert gave a very detailed report and was very professional. He also gave good and appropriate advice. Egbert came prepared with the correct equipment for the job. He would also point out an issue but give a quick idea of how it would be repaired. Would highly recommend to others!

Very detailed report, extremely useful, learned tons from Egbert!

Egbert was very detailed in his inspection and I followed him around the house while he did. The knowledge he shared and jokes he made during that inspection made for an enjoyable experience. We used this report to have an informed decision for our 1 year new home inspection. It really helped us to get some deficiencies in our home uncovered and addressed. Loved that the report had pictures, details and recommendations for fixes. Finally, Egbert gave us the completed report within a few days and we were impressed with the quick turnaround.

Thanks Wendy. I know the home inspection is a lot of information in a short time and can be overwhelming, sometimes humour keeps it in perspective. I recommend inspections on new homes, before you have committed all your money. A one year inspection finds the things that show up after the house has been lived in. Both are important!
It was a pleasure to work with you. Enjoy your home!

Responsive and thorough roof evaluation

I've had an assortment of roofers come by and take a look at my roof, all reporting that it needed to be replaced without much in the way of detail or pictures as to why. The quotes to repair varied in price by quite a bit. Diamond home inspections provided an independent evaluation including what needed to be repaired immediately and what could wait for a bit. Very professional and experienced company, reasonably priced and knowledgeable. I would definitely recommend.

Thanks for your kind words KD! I really enjoy my job and helping to understand whats going on with their homes. It was pretty amazing for me to see the difference that the lack of attic ventilation can make on the two different halves of this roof! I look forward to inspecting it after the work is done.
It was a pleasure to do this for you. Glad it fit so easily into the schedule!

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!
