In October of 2007, HOME INSPECTORS® was awarded the Better Business Bureau Once in a lifetime "TORCH AWARD" for Ethical business practice, providing exemplary customer service and going "above and beyond" for it's clientele. The most rewarding thing about receiving this award is that we were nominated by our clientele - which to us, speaks volumes...

About the level of service that we provide…

"Honestly, this was the best money we ever spent! I am so glad we hired you as our inspector. It was not only an extremely helpful evaluation of the house but also an education on the type of things we should watch out for when shopping for a property. We will probably never look at the houses we visit the same way again. You did a fantastic job."

"As a first time home buyer, Paul's experience and knowledge was very helpful in discovering potential issues about the house to further investigate. He answered all my questions and provided very helpful insight based on his experience. I received the inspection report at the end of the inspection without any delay. The report was well organized, with sections covering the different parts of the property. It also included notes to explain the more technical issues that may not be obvious to a new home buyer like myself. I would not hesitate to recommend him to my friends."

"We wanted to thank you for your helpfulness, advice, thoroughness and expertise, which made our decision less stressful. You had pointed out many deficiencies that we had not initially noticed, they were a big surprise to us. You found asbestos, mold, structural, HVAC, electrical, issues (plus many additional issues), and most importantly this home was not environmentally safe for us. You took the time to explain all of the deficiencies in detail, and provided us a ball park estimate on the cost to fix those issues. Thank you once again for your service, when it is time to purchase another home, you will be the first person we call, and will recommend you to any friends or family that may be looking for an experienced home inspector."

"Conscientious, thorough, and professional" are words that describe Mr. Paul Wilson, Registered Home Inspector. Not only does he provide the technical knowledge expected, he goes out of his way trying to find solutions, and/or people, to solve the deficiencies that are found. He is a definite expert in his field!

Dr. Bao Nguyen, DDS - Client


"As part of the preparation for selling our home, our agent recommended a Pre-Sale Inspection. This seemed like an idea that would help in the sale of our home. Although we had expected a three to four month wait, the house sold within two weeks, and for our original asking price.

We believe that the inspection had a comforting effect on the buyer, who could be assured that there were no major hidden costs or unpleasant surprises to be faced. It was also very comforting to us, knowing that we would not find ourselves responsible for unexpected last minute repairs.

We were very pleased with the professionalism of your service. We are pleased to recommend you to others. We will certainly consider using you again."

Ross and Willa MacDonald - Clients


"Paul Wilson first inspected a house for me in 1986. My initial impression was one of professionalism, knowledge, and a true concern for the safety and pocketbook of his clients.

Eleven years and three properties later, that impression has been confirmed time and again. Paul's knowledge of both urban and rural environments, his judicious advice and his availability have helped me make informed and timely decisions about each purchase. Buying a home is an important financial commitment. I make sure that it is also a wonderful experience by insisting on a pre-purchase inspection by Home Inspectors."

"There is no question that because of Paul Wilson's experience and dogged determination, my wife and I have confidence in our new home purchase in Riverside South. The 4 - phase inspection allows the home owner to see what lies beneath the drywall. I am confident that we have saved thousands in future costs because of the number of items that were pointed out by Mr. Wilson at each stage of construction."

Rod Emby - Comfortable New Home Owner

The 4-phase inspection program allowed me to have a precise statement of the state of my new home before I committed to the final full payment. Today, with the increasing problems related to "tract housing" by larger builders, this knowledge was more powerful than any guarantee. Mr. Wilson did a thorough enumeration of deficiencies, many of them I would haven't known".

Francois Groulx – New Home Owner


"I have used Home Inspectors on three occasions - twice for re-sales and once on a new home. I have been very satisfied. In the case of the two re-sales, I withdrew my offer to purchase as a result of problems identified in the inspection. In the case of the new home, they identified problems (such as faulty electrical, covered ventilation in the attic, basement steel beams that were neither shimmed properly nor cemented in place). These problems were missed by both the builder and the city inspectors. As a result of their report, I was able to have the builder make a number of other important changes, including adding a cold air return to the master bedroom, and redoing my stone work. Moreover, just having them there may have given me a better product. My neighbours did not use an inspector. All of them had significantly more problems than I did and had considerable difficulty resolving these problems with the builder. It most definitely helped to have a written report by an accredited inspector. Without it, the builder is more inclined to contest whether the problem really requires fixing.

The cost of the 4 phase inspection was less than a half percent of the purchase price of the home. It was less than the cost of my lawyer or my movers. It saved me considerable headaches and possibly expense. In the case of the electrical problems, I was surprised to learn that my house was never inspected by a city inspector. The sub-trade had been accredited by the city. After that, the city only spot checked their work and this did not include my house. To me that is another reason to obtain the services of an accredited inspector.

I have referred Home Inspectors to two friends who have also been very satisfied with their service. I would highly recommend them."

Richard Konchak – New Home Owner


"I have known Paul for approximately seven years. He has assisted me in teaching a course for first time home buyers at Algonquin College.

Paul is extremely knowledgeable in the area of home inspections. He is highly regarded by others in his profession and by the legal community. I have and will continue to refer him to my clients. In fact, I hired him to do my own home inspection."

Richard O'Reilly - Solicitor


"I would like to thank you for taking time out to speak to my group of students at the "Buying a Home" class I presented at Algonquin College.

You put on a great presentation which kept the students glued to the screen and your words. I very much enjoyed it and I know they did as well."

"Thank you for assisting us with our First Time Home Buyers Seminar. Your professional advice and input was greatly valued by both the members and myself. We have spoken to several members who have used your services recently and all praised your professionalism and attention to detail. "As a financial institution, we are happy to refer any home buyers to your firm. As you pointed out in our seminar, a home purchase may be the largest financial transaction of an individuals life. Perhaps the best indicator of our satisfaction with your firm is that some of my staff have hired you to perform their own home inspections. I look forward to a long association with your firm."
