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!

Very thorough

Egbert is an excellent inspector who is very detailed orientated and thorough. He was punctual, efficient, and sent us a very thorough report which ultimately helped us make our decision. He knows his stuff, and also many 'Dad jokes'.

Thank you for not calling them 'bad jokes'. Glad I got to be a part of this process and that you found all the information useful. There's a lot to be aware of as you decide if, "This is the job we want to buy."

Home inspection (second times)

Egbert is very knowledgeable and very detailed and provided report quickly so that we can finalize the offer. This is the second time he did a home inspection for us. We would definitely use him again..

Thorough, a sharp eye for detail and educative

As a first time home buyer I found this walkthrough extremely helpful. It provided me with insight into how to take care of my house, what to look for during the first year of living (under warranty) and the opportunity to ensure all mechanical/electrical equipment was up and running on day one. I was pleasantly surprised by how much time we spent inspecting the exterior of the building...other experiences usually lack in this area and blow by these details.

Overall Egbert was great. I highly recommend.

Thanks for the review Alex. Glad I could get that inspection done for you before I disappeared on holidays (my apologies for not responding to this review earlier). Most of a home inspection is about water; anytime I come across synthetic stucco in Calgary I know I need to find the details that help us determine the risks. Thanks for letting me a part of your first home purchase!

Home inspection.

This is one VERY THOROUGH inspector. He didn’t miss a beat. Love that his reports have a picture for every deficiency or anything he noted. They are not only rated by importance but also note related codes and explanations.
Very well done. Thanks Egbert !

Fantastic Experience

A truly amazing experience. We are 2nd time home buyers and couldn't have asked for a more thorough, professional and pleasant experience with the inspection of our new home. Thank you, Egbert!

Detailed, Fair and Subject Matter Expert

​The only home inspector to consider. Punctual, professional, honest, detailed and fair. Egbert’s home inspection provides more than a perspective on purchasing. My report was like a 36-page strategy guide for what needs to be done, what to do to prevent issues and what to watch for in the future. Not a template, but each item uniquely commented on and compared to what should be. Diamond Inspections is absolutely the best I have seen. If you are buying a home, this is the company to use.

Thank's for taking the time Scott, to write such a thourogh review.... I sense a theme here... Hahaha. It was a pleasure to work with you. I'm guessing since you found the right home the second time, you won't be needing me for a while. But thanks for not keeping me a secret.!

Home Inspection

Egbert's home inspection was conducted professionally and thoroughly. The inspection report was comprehensive and recommendations indicated in the report were easy to follow. It did not overwhelm us even though it was our first time doing an inspection. He found a way to make everything simple and easy to understand and saw to it that every detail in the home was inspected. The whole experience overall was really pleasant and his services are highly recommended!

Conducted home inspection as part of my conditions to purchase a new home

The inspection Egbert completed was thorough, easily understood, and very beneficial! I appreciated his attention to detail and the points he identified in his report. The whole process was extremely easy to work through, and I was able to make an informed decision to purchase my home. I would recommend Egbert and his services to other folks looking to have a home inspected prior to purchase - it’s worth it!

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!

Getting you shingles replaced and want to be sure it was done right? Include an inspection as part of the contract, and Call for a roof inspection before you make final payment.
