Stephan arrived on time to the property and carried out his inspection.
He was very helpful at answering my questions and delivered promptly a very detailed report. I definitely recommend him for any property inspection.
A home inspection is a peace of mind when purchasing a home, you wouldn’t buy a car without a test drive right?
Stephen is very thorough and deliberately takes his time investigating every possible issue both interior and exterior, this is a good thing because he doesn’t charge by the hour.
There is no rush from him to get it done quick, he truly wants to ensure you and your family are getting the best house for your dollar.
Any issues that Stephen does come across, he will give you a severity assessment.
If it’s a minor issue that can be repaired fairly reasonably Stephen will recommend a company to do the work, if it’s an extreme issue you will be made aware and the decision is In your hands.
need a home inspection for financing or a home inspection for peace of mind call Stephen and you will not regret it.
His fees are very reasonable for the amount of work he puts in, no shortcuts and no quick walk through of your potential property.
You have an interest in a home purchase, he has an interest to maintain his stellar reputation that has been earned one customer at a time.
The report you will receive upon completion is extremely detailed and leaves zero questions, it is as thorough as Stephen!
5/5 and I will definitely recommend
Stephan was AMAZING!! He was able to fit us in last minute for our home inspection and was so thorough. Walked through everything with us, took lots of pictures, made excellent recommendations that were all included in the report as well.
We received the report within 2 hours of having the inspection complete and I was shocked at how thorough the report was for being so little time.
Made our first time home buying experience so much easier! Would highly recommend to anyone.
Thanks Stephan for the great inspection of my home. Your thorough work discover positive things I was not aware ,
Your careful inspection provided me with security that my 59 yr old home was above standards ,
You did not miss anything.
Very impressed and pleased I chose your service. Will pass the word to my friends who are considering selling their homes,
More than a 5 star.
Stephan is great. Only inspector I'll use. Provides a ton of insight and is crazy fast getting the report to you. I won't be hesitating to use him again. Super professional and great part of any real estate team.
Stephan is my top recommended inspector to any of my buyers. Truly the most thorough and clearest reports, gets the reports to the buyers within a couple hours after the inspection so we can meet the fast condition times in this real estate market. Very very knowledgeable, top notch customer care, my buyers that use Stephan are never disappointed!
What a rockstar!! Stephan was truly an amazing person to work side by side with during the purchase of our new home. He made it simple and easy to feel like we are making the right choice for our family. A SAFE CHOICE!
It always about safety and making a new house feel like a home and we just moved in with ease and knowing that our house is solid, warm and anything needing to be fixed was found by Stephan (and was minor). He walked us through his entire inspection and explained everything in detail! Thanks for the help on such short notice as well!!
We highly recommend Stephan services. Buying an investment property is a stressful experience but with the right people with the right qualifications and knowledge it a big help.
Thank you Stephan for all your help and expertise.
I am very pleased with the very thorough and complete home inspection done. Stephan wrote back to my initial text inquiring about them very promptly. (and it was in the later evening) He followed through with setting up an appointment from there. My uncle oversaw his work at my new place for me. (as I was at work myself at the time). My uncle said he would recommend him to any family and friends who needed an inspection done in the future. Stephan sent me the home inspection within two hrs of its completion,complete with many detailed pictures. I was very impressed like my uncle and would highly recommend his services to anyone I know as well in the future.
Stephan came highly recommended from our Realtor; we can certainly see why! He was friendly, professional, and answered questions even after the work was complete. The thorough report and great work were well worth the reasonable cost.
Stephan from Northern Inspections of Windsor is highly recommended. Buying a home is a stressful experience for us, and glad that the choice of this home inspector was solid. Our real estate agent had prior working experience with Stephan, and asked him to come in on a tight timeline ( and Sunday ). He arrive a bit earlier than the appointment, so he could get started on the outside inspection ( Roof, grounds, foundation, etc ).
Stephen is has a wealth of experience, first as a builder of homes, and as a certified home inspector for more than ten years. He did not hesitate to allow me to follow him around the house, and explained what he was checking and observing. Given that i have limited construction experience, i did not feel i was talk down upon.
The inspection lasted about 1.5 hours. And before the end of the day, Stephan created a report of all his findings in a pdf with lots of photos, and written description of likely issues and possible solutions.
I even had some follow up questions about the report, and Stephan replied promptly.
Stephan Northern Inspections of Windsor have provided a very informative residential and commercial inspections. He also forwarded a timely report on the same day. His years of experience in the industry is definitely an advantage especially inspecting a multi-family units. I am based out of town and I am looking forward meeting him in person considering all our transactions were just over the phone. He is definitely one of the power team in Real Estate to keep.
Stephan has provided us written report regarding the health of the house. A good person to talk to during the inspection, very thorough and informative. Because "time is of the essence, he was able to satisfy our request to come prior to making an offer for a house. I also requested recommendations of contractors just in case we need them, which he provided promptly. Thank you Stephen.
Very professional and efficient. Was able
To come do the inspection before any other company could come out. Was thorough and very pleasant. My inspection showed mold and other findings that my rental company was trying to hide and now I am able to get out of my lease with my inspection report!! Thank you.
I had the pleasure of working with Stephan from Northern inspections July of 2019. I was very impressed with his professionalism and knowledge and willingness to provide support even after providing the finished report. He took the time to review the report on more than one occasion and helped us prioritize needed repairs. I highly recommend Stephan - you won't be disappointed!
The service we received was professional and completed in a thorough, timely manner. The home inspector was personable, friendly and explained questions in detail. Would highly recommend this inspector.
We highly recommend Northern Inspections to anyone buying a home. Stephan was very personable, professional and insightful. We learned a lot about our home during his inspection and the written report (that only took 2 hours to receive). We now have a "map" of things that need to be addressed over the short term and long term and have complete peace of mind. Thank you again, Stephan.
Casey from Kingsville.
We had bought and sold several homes in the past and had home inspections on many by differs companies. This time though, we connected with Stephan and we were very happy we did! We needed our inspection within two days and he accommodated us without hesitation. Stephan was very thorough, explained all issues ensuring I understood clearly and was extremely personable. Great experience!
Stephan Tremblay was able to do a Home Inspection of our house on short notice. We want to sell the house "as is" and wanted to be knowledgeable about reports potential buyers might refer to. He went over the house in the morning and had his report in early afternoon. The report was clear and extensive. He recommended a basement wall specialist to get an estimate of the kind of repairs to the basement walls needed and their cost (and the company he recommended responded quickly and gave us a free written quote). His charge was reasonable.
We couldn't be happier with his service.
I recently had a home inspected by Stephan of Northern Inspections. Based on my experience with Stephan, I can say without hesitation that he is professional, knowledgeable, timely, polite and accommodating. I would use Stephan's services again and recommend him to friends and family.
We hired Stephan from Northern Inspections to do a last minute pre-inspection on a house my wife and I were looking at. He was excellent to work with, very accommodating despite my request being of such short notice, and he was extremely knowledgeable. He had answers to every question we had and really knew his stuff. I would absolutely recommend his services! Inexpensive as well which made things a lot less stressful.
Stephen at Nothern Inspections was the most accommodating person I have met. In all the distress of selling and buying a new home Stephen was thoroughly detailed with the inspection on my new home. Through the entire inspection Stephen explained procedures and details, advice and a list of other trusted contractors that will help through this transition. And that was extremely valuable to me as a new home buyer living pay cheque to pay cheque with a growing family. I appreciate all he has done and stepped over his call of duty. If or when I ever move again I most definitely be calling Northern Inspections.
Nothing but positive things to say about Stephan. He was timely and thorough. He provided explanations as he completed the inspection and even gave us some details about the area. The report was clear and detailed and the home owner's manual he provided at the end of the inspection is a great tool for first-time home buyers.
After the inspection he offered to provide names of local contractors as referrals for the work I wanted completed and the small fixes to address outstanding issues. I followed up and he provided a great list of names and I was able to confirm a contractor to complete the work quickly.
Stephan provided excellent customer service and speedy follow up. I would strongly recommend him to anyone.
Thanks again, Stephan and Northern Inspections!
Stephen did an incredibly thorough job inspecting our home as well as providing us with a detailed report. He was not only punctual and reliable but took the time to answer all of our questions in an accessible manner. Additionally, he made a second trip to our home upon our obtaining possession to review a concern we had. This second trip also happened to fall on a holiday yet Stephen made my husband, I and our home a priority. Strongly recommend!!
Stephen was very thorough with the inspection of my trailer. He also mentioned about insulation under the trailer and ventilation. I will also need a furnace and central unit. He was very helpful. Thank you very much.
Very helpful answering a variety of questions regarding the home we purchased and aided in helping us sell our present home by completing inspection prior to listing.
Stephan did my inspection at the last minute on a weekend due to my offer conditions. He showed up on time and did a thorough job. I am out of town buyer and was unable to be there. That day he sent the report soon after and we discussed it. We also delved into more details the next day even though he had a family function. This is good service and conscientious. He was patient explaining things to me since I am just a layman with home construction. Would use him again !
Stephan provided the best every inspection of the house. He even noted very small details and explained all issues. Stephan is highly experienced and privided professional services in timely manner. I would highly recommend him to my family and friends.
Stephan was recommended by our realtor, and we couldn't be more satisfied. He was thorough, courteous, and took the time to explain his entire process to me as we walked through the inspection with him. Highly recommended!
Stephan is prompt and efficient. he is extremely knowledgeable in the home inspection field. he is willing to spend the time to pass that knowledge on to you. if your going to buy a house in this fast passed market you still need a home inspection. the 5 point inspection they offer is money well spent.
We contacted Northern Inspections last fall (Sept 2018) on the recommendation of our real estate agent, to conduct an inspection of a home we were considering purchasing. We arranged a date and time and met Stephan at the home at the scheduled time.
Stephan spent quite a bit of time inspecting the property. He was professional, thorough, knowledgeable and a complete pleasure to deal with.
The report we received shortly thereafter allowed us to proceed with confidence in purchasing the property.
Cost for the inspection was very reasonable.
I have no hesitation in recommending Northern Inspections and would definitely use them again should the need arise.
Stephan did again an excellent job for me! It was the 2nd time when I needed his services and he was again exceptional! Very happy with his services! I'd go again back to him should I need home inspection services in the future! Very trusted, honest and friendly professional! Thank you!
This was the second time I've requested Northern Inspection's support for a home inspection. Mr. Tremblay accommodated my schedule needs, provided in depth and educational information during the home inspection, and presented a professional and thorough report to summarize his findings. I'd highly recommend his services to friends and family.
Stephen was knowledgeable and friendly. He did a thorough inspection of the home we purchased. We are very pleased with the service that he provided. He answered all of our questions and sent us a detailed report of the home inspection. We would use him again and highly recommend him.
Just had home inspection with Northern Home Inspections and was very pleased throughout inspection. The inspector introduced himself, qualifications, took time with each issue that did arise to explain potential solutions. The inspection was very detailed and we loved the digital file so quickly after inspection for us to review. Would highly recommend to anyone looking into purchasing a home.
Stephan was professional, kind, and thorough in his inspection. Extremely knowledgeable and a great resource for learning about the home. He gave us the confidence that we were making a great decision for purchasing the home we were looking at. If we had any questions in how to go about making a change to the house he gave us fantastic recommendations on how we can achieve what we wanted to do. Highly recommended!
Very happy with service. Stephan was professional & knowledgeable, he checked the house out top to bottom. The report is very detailed & tells you what should be done. Well worth the money for the peace of mind you get! I have already recommended him to friends. I think it's a good idea to have your home checked out every 2 years or so to keep on top of things before you end up with major problems.
Stephan inspected my current home to sell and the home I purchased. He was very thorough and gave detailed explanations of everything. He took me around the house and explained things in terms I would understand. He made the process easy and stress free. I would highly recommend Stephan from northern inspections!
We needed, on short notice, a house inspection for a house we wanted to buy and requested Northern Inspections for inspecting the house. It allotted us the date we wanted and did an excellent job.
Stephan Tremblay, the inspector, was very thorough and methodical in his approach. He also showed us everything we need to know about the house all the while he was performing the inspection work on the house. It turned out to be a good learning experience for us in addition to getting an excellent inspection done on our house.
I will always recommend Northern Inspection to all my friends.
What a good company to use when getting a home inspection, very clear at everything that is being said. Very personable and does not treat you like a car salesman.
I would 100% recommend Northern Inspections.
Stephen is great to work with! I have used his services now twice and will always be happy to recommend him to anyone asking! He is knowledgeable and personable and all around very professional.
Me and my family used northern inspections to investigate a duplex we were planning on purchasing Stephen used his considerable knowlage to help us understand some of the current and upcoming concerns about this duplex.
We again two weeks later consulted him on another property we we're investigating. Stephen Tremblay was patient and thurough about making sure we felt at ease at making a proper bid on this property, and armed with that knowlage and understanding better educated on the worth of it's value and deficiencies. I highly recommend Stephen Tremblay in reference to making your next home purchace.
Great service, pleasant gentle man to work with.
Assessment was done within a week of my request, A detail report was given to me within 24 hours as requested.
Great service, I am greatly impressed.
Before buying my investment property in Windsor, I had to contact multiple home inspectors and ask questions about their work, experience and such. Out of all of them, Stephan (Northern Inspections) seemed to be the most qualified and skilled. After the inspection was done, Stephan has called me for few minutes to provide a quick overview of the report. It meant a lot to me since I was very interested to get a quick update. Later in the day, Stephan called me again and we've spent more than one hour on the phone by going with me line by line on the most important items from the report and he also answered professionally to all my questions. Before we ended up the call, Stephan made sure that I got answers to all my questions, thus I felt more confident to take the proper decision. I've worked with several home inspectors in my past, but I'd truly and 100% confirm that Stephan is my NUMBER ONE!!! If anybody would need for their home inspections a really talented, experienced, professional, quick, available and very friendly home inspector, then I’d truly recommend you to contact Stephan! He is the BEST so far!
Upon arriving at the property, we found Stephan already at work inspecting the house, crawling in the basement. He was very professional, very thorough and super friendly. 5 stars service ! Thank you, Tremblay !
Stephen was was absolutely wonderful to work with. Very thorough and professional. He obviously takes pride in what he does, and is an absolute wealth of knowledge. He was able to give us helpful hints and tips on renovating and repairing a lot of the problem areas that he did find in our home inspection. We will be forever grateful!!!
Northern Inspections performed the home inspection for us. Stephan Tremblay was punctual and a thorough professional. His feedback and turnaround time was prompt. We are pleased with service provided and would be happy to recommend Northern Inspections to our friends.
I was very pleased with the service provided by Northern Inspections.
It was quick and easy to book the appointment, and Stephan was pleasant and knowledgeable. We were provided a thorough report the same night. Highly recommend this company if you need a home inspection.
Excellent service. Stephan is professional and courteous, he knows what he is doing and he spares no effort to make the customer happy. He offers a detailed report after checking the house with all its functionality and accurately finds any possible defects or flaws. When buying a house, his inspection is a a service that is worth every penny and can save you a lot of trouble later.
Thank you Stephanie !
Professional and prompt service. Stephen helped our agency asses the condition of a large commercial property that had been sitting for over 5 years. He identified concerns that were not on our radar, and helped ease our minds over issues that we were aware of. Highly recommend his service!
There is always uncertainty when trying to find a home inspector that you can be confident with and trust. These guys are professional and honest. They will tell you exactly what they find which is what you want when you are buying property. I felt more comfortable about my investment after having them out for the inspection. Thank you to the whole Northern Home team!
We had our home inspected by Northern Inspection Group and were so impressed with the process. Not only was Stephan extremely professional but he explained so much about everything that we learned a lot. He was actually at the inspection early and ready for work.
They use the latest technology (for example infra-red to check for moisture) which helps greatly with the inspection. Having had home inspectors in the past, we found Northern Inspection to be very affordable and knowledgeable.
We would highly recommend this inspection company!
Provided meaningful suggestions and materials to better ease us into a new home. Supported us with connections to other trusted professionals whom could help in various ways with the changes suggested. Was willing to go the extra mile with equipment and crawlspace inspection.
Would highly recommend.
Stephan was a pleasure to work with. He provided a walk-thru of the home, pointing out things to be aware of and things to be addressed.
His report came the same day with pictures and details and tips. This helped us make a well-informed decision.
I needed a home inspection on very short notice to decide whether to purchase a fixer-upper or not. Stephan made time and truly amazed me with his vast knowledge, based on more than a decade of working as a contractor himself. He had answers and recommendations to any and all of my questions, even after I had already received his report and his work was basically done. This home inspection was worth every penny and I can highly recommend Northern Inspections. Once I got to choosing contractors to fix up my new home, thanks to Stephan's recommendations and pointing out crucial issues, the renovations went fast and smooth. I can't thank you enough Stephan!
Stephan was efficient, knowledgeable and courteous. He explained the problems in detail and made suggestions on how to fix them. His report was detailed and when I had questions regarding the report he immediately responded. Would highly recommend him.
We used Northern Inspections for both a pre-sale inspection for the house we were selling as well as an inspection for the house we purchased. Stephan was fantastic. He gave us a thorough report on both houses shortly after completing the inspections as well as highlighting some things at the time of inspection. I highly recommend them.
I asked Northern Inspection to check the house I submitted an offer for. My realtor advised me to try their services. Actually the action was so quick and Job done with detailed report. I will consider them for any further inspection.
We were very pleased with the service provided by Staphen on our pre-inspection. This document was a very integral part to the sale of our property. Being able to show perspective buyers the condition of the property was a huge success. We would definitely recommend this company to anyone.
Thanks again Stephen.
The best in the business. Stephan was very thorough in everything he did. He uses all the latest technology and equipment to complete the inspection. He is a very pleasant and honest person and when he leaves the job you know exactly what your into and you have the peace of mind to to buy or the knowledge to walk away. Couldn't be more satisfied with this service.
When I called Northern Inspections my call was returned the same day and the appointment was set up at my convenience. Stephen was prompt, courteous and thorough with his inspection. I appreciated his knowledge and years of experience in his field so all of my issues were addressed.
I would highly recommend his services.
Stephen came out and did a house inspection for us.
He's a awesome dude, full of knowledge and was very detailed as to what he's looking at and what he is looking for.
Over excellent service, super impressed!
I highly recommend Northern Inspections and would use their services again! Stephan is extremely knowledgeable, thorough and courteous. He made the inspection process easy and satisfactorily answered all of the questions we had. He even offered great suggestions and advice for updating the home.
Thanks again Stephan!
We were very pleased with the service provided by Northern Inspections. They were quick to respond to our request, readily available, conducted the work in a timely and professional manner, and delivered the results same day, all at a fair price. What more can you ask for?
I recently had Stephan from Northern Home Inspections complete an inspection on a home I was looking to purchase. Stephan was professional, thorough, informative, timely. I could not have asked for a better experience and would recommend him to friends and family in the future.
Amazing service. Couldn't be happier with the home inspection that was provided. Knowledgeable, professional, and able to explain in detail potential problems and solutions in any area of concern. The report I received was well organized and easy to follow with plenty of detail. 10/10 would recommend and use again!
Stephen is very knowledgeable about many topics when it comes to home inspection. He was very thorough and was willing to answer any of our questions. We were able to talk to him after the inspection with any other questions that we had.
I would not hesitate to use Northern Inspections services again.
I highly recommend Northern Inspection for any mold or water/moisture testing. I called Stephan and he promptly returned my call. He was extremely professional, timely and provided an accurate informative report on my commercial building.
Reasonable rates, very punctual, professional and courteous! Customer only need to call Stephan and Northern Inspections to have the job done right and quickly!
Northern Inspections did a great job in inspecting a house a wanted to buy. This was my first house and I was really worried if i am making the correct choice. The house was thoroughly inspected and all the details/repairs required were properly communicated to me via email. I am very happy with the inspection.
I really recommend Northern Inspections to everyone.
Stephan Tremblay recently completed a home inspection for us. He was very professional and thorough. We would definitely recommend him to friends and family! He took the time to explain what needed to be taken care of right away and what could wait. He answered all of our questions and told us about what we could probably take care of ourselves for very little cost and what we should leave for the professionals. He came highly recommended and rightly so! Stephan is a very friendly, caring individual who wants to provide his clients with excellent service and professional advice! If you are looking for a home inspection done for a reasonable price and done right, then we would recommend you give him a call. His quick response and wealth of knowledge will make you glad that you did!
As a first time home buyer I really liked the fact Stephan Tremblay provided us with a very thorough and honest inspection of the house. He took his time to explain all the details when inspecting the home.
I would highly recommend Northern Inspections.
Stephan was AWESOME. He provided us with a very thorough and honest inspection of our house that we recently purchased. I would highly recommend Northern Inspections to anyone in need of this type of service. He was also very personable and made our first home buying experience a great one! 5 stars!!!
We had a home inspection done by Stephen last week and we were completely satisfied with the experience. He was very personable and informative. He had given us a lot of helpful suggestions and explained exactly what we need to do and in what order. He was very polite and he explained everything to us as we walked through with him.
We will definitely be calling Stephen in the future if we ever need another inspection, and we would highly recommend him to friends and family.
I have had three inspections done in Windsor in the last 4 years. Last week I hired Northern Inspections on the recommendation of my Real Estate Agent. Stephan turned up early to inspect the outside of the home; it was very cold that day. He introduced himself and advised us of the scope of his work. The inspection took 2 1/2 hours, which proves how thorough he was. Stephan checked and tested the appliances, which was not done by my other inspectors. Photos were taken throughout the home, showing the good and the bad. Stephan instructed me on how to maintain certain areas of the home and how to save energy and utility costs. An additional service, that was not offered by the other inspectors, but very important, is the thermal imaging. The device "sees" through walls and ceilings, detecting moisture and the amount of insulation present. This especially critical information is needed after the severe floods we have had in the past year.
Stephan answered every question I asked and treated me with respect, not judging me as a senior female who didn't know what was going on.
He promised to have his report and photos that same day and he came through on his promise within a couple of hours.
Northern Inspections is definitely my home inspector for the future.
Having experienced some issues with dampness from a possibly leaky new roof, I contacted Northern to investigate. After completing the inspection, I was given an excellent overview of the issues, and also shown how the inspection was done (nice camera!) Stephan was very informative and helpful and the written report was concise and to the point, delivered later the same day as the inspection was done. I appreciated the friendliness and professionalism accorded to me and will not hesitate to recommend Northern Inspections to anyone who is looking for such service.
Excellent money spent. Clear information, concise, and knowledgeable. He inspected every nook and cranny, & gave detailed information in a written report afterward. Pleasant to deal with as well. Would highly recommend him to anyone.
Stephan was extremely knowledgeable and very helpful for my first home purchase. He took the time to explain everything thoroughly if needed. Definitely recommend him to anyone who needs the piece of mind when purchasing property.
This was a true home inspection! No corners cut. We received an education at the same time while going through the inspection. And loads of tips on how to improve our new home. All was much appreciated and Mr. Trombley of northern inspections left no stone unturned. It was extremely informative and helpful!
Stephen did a great job explaining every little thing about the house, whether it was small things I could do to help improve it or big things that will help save a ton of money down the road. Super knowledgeable when it comes to anything housing and offered great connections on where to buy things to knowing the right person to call for a certain job. Would highly recommend without any doubt.
I called to have my home inspected, but needed one done next day and Stephan was able to accommodate this. He is very knowledgeable, friendly, and honest. He is amazing and checks every thing. So if your looking for a reliable, honest, knowledgeable home inspector call Stephan at Northern Inspections.
As a local Real Estate Sales Representative I surround myself with trustworthy, reliable and diligent colleagues, Stephan with Northern Inspections is that and more! If you are looking for someone who you can count on to get you the report you need then look no further. I recommend Stephan to each and every one of my clients in need of a home inspection.
Great, knowledgeable and professional. I felt good walking through my new house with Stephan. I have experience in home contracting and was impressed by what he was able to point out and his knowledge in the market in general. Will refer him in the future.
Stephan Tremblay did an inspection on my house. He was very polite and curteous. He explained everything to me so I understood his report and he answered all of my questions . I was very impressed with this company and this gentleman. I would and have, gladly recommended him!
Had the pleasure of meeting Stephan when he did my home inspection this past year. I cannot praise him enough. I would never purchase a home without calling him in first. I have recommended his services to everyone I know.
Thank you so much Stephan!!!
We recently hired Northern Inspections to conduct a home inspection for an older home we were seeking to buy, renovate and sell. After walking around the home with Stephan and listening to his expert feedback it was immediately clear the home was beyond traditional repairs. Stephan is a true expert and provided detailed feedback on everything from electrical, plumbing, foundation, moisture readings, heating & cooling and general repairs. He pointed out many things that were not immediately apparent to us. We found Stephan to be very knowledgeable and professional and we ended up hiring him a second time for a different home. We're happy we hired Stephan and would highly recommend him to anyone looking for expert advice on home renovations.
Stephen did a home inspection for me on a fourplex rental unit in September 2017. He did an excellent job in highlighting several structural issues and also found asbestos, which the owner initially said was not present. This would have cost me thousands of dollars in repairs. If I had bought this fourplex it would also be uninsurable.
Excellent service! The house purchase happened so fast and over a long weekend. Northern Inspections was contacted by my agent Paul Bistany on Sunday I believe and set up an appointment for Tuesday at 9:30 a.m. He took credit card on completion and sent the receipt by e-mail and the printed information the same day.
I'm impressed and would contact again.
We had a home inspection done by Stephan after writing an offer on an older town house. He was prompt, thorough and very knowledgeable providing contacts for any items that would need attention. Due to Stephan's knowledge and recommendations we were able to realize that the property was not a good fit for us due to the work that needed to be done and the amount of money that it would have taken to fix all the items Stephan identified as needing replacing or fixing. The biggest thing for us was that the townhouse was listed and being used as a 4 bedroom townhouse but 2 of the bedrooms were in the basement where there was no egress window for escape in case of fire. This is both illegal and very dangerous. We would not ever put our family or guests in these downstairs bedrooms and putting in the required windows would have been both extremely expensive and obtaining permission from the condo association would have been difficult and a lengthy process.
Thank you Stephan for your expertise.
Northern Inspections was recommended to us for a new home we were intending to purchase. Stephan performed a very thorough inspection of the home and explained what he was doing and noticing while performing the inspection to keep us aware of the entire process. Besides being thorough Stephan also gave advice on issues he noticed during the inspection. Overall we were very pleased with his inspection and we intend to use him again in the future.
I would definitely recommend Stephan and Northern Inspections to do your home inspection. He was friendly, knowledgeable, and caring. He took his time explaining his findings and gave suggestions on what we could do to get the most out of our home. The price was good and he was available when we needed him. Great experience!
Had a home inspection done by Stephen the report was through and concise about the good and bad aspects of the house. Then he was available for any follow up questions that I had. I would recommend using Northern Inspection.
Stephen did a great job for us in inspection our new home. He arrived early, did a thorough walk around and then went through each aspect of each room on step at a time, all the while taking lots of time to explain lots of things to me and to answer any questions I had. Stephen had lots of equipment to see through walls, search out any potential issues, and let us know anything that we would want to keep an eye on as time passed.
I can not stress this enough, don't skimp on a home inspector. Stephan was incredibly insightful and helpful with our inspection, and from reading some of his reviews I come to realize that he is consistently bringing the same experience to all of Windsor and Essex county. I personally love the fact that I can go back and look at my written report (which came surprisingly quickly after the inspection completed) and make a list of things I need to fix or budget for. Worth every penny. His experience will save you down the road!
Thanks again Stephan! Keep up the awesome work.
Stephan is a top-notch home inspector. He holds endless information about building practices, codes, and policies. In fact, my wife commented that she felt she just attended "house building school". Stephan always carries out his business with excellent professionalism and courtesy. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to have a house inspection.
Steph was a true Pro from start to finish. Arrived early, was very knowledgeable, suggested several preventative tips to avoid problems in the future, and includes pool and moisture tests for no additional charge! Would absolutely recommend to anyone!!
Great Job Steph!!
Our experience with Northern Inspections for our Home Inspection was incredible. I can't recommend them enough. The inspection was very thorough, and while going through the home we were provided great explanations for everything that we came across, as well as suggestions for ways to address anything current concerns or even things that might lead to a concern over time.
Thanks Stephen Tremblay for doing the home inspection for a 12 year old house in Windsor. He was through and clearly explained his findings in plain English, both major and minor problems discovered. It was well worth the price. His discovery of a major item allowed us to renegotiate our purchase price in compensation.
We were purchasing a 100 year old home and they are typically not without some quirks, Northern Inspections didn't miss any small details and gave us a thorough report so we could make an extremely informed decision. During the inspection they also gave us many upkeep and ongoing maintenance tips. The thermal camera was also pretty cool. We'll definitely refer.
Stephan conducted a detailed and thorough home inspection on my over 100 year old house. He explained each aspect of the inspection and offered suggestions for any issues he came across. After hearing horror stories of inspections conducted by other companies, the experience with Stephan was anything but that. I left feeling confident the results of the inspection came from a trustworthy, knowledgeable, professional source. I would choose Northern Inspections again in a heartbeat.
Stephan is a true professional on his business. He came for my house inspection and the experience was a total pleasure. He looked into details throughout the house, from top to bottom. Meanwhile, he was very communicative and willing to share his thoughts and suggestions with me, helping me quickly understand the condition of the house. He showed a great concentration and passion on his work, and I am glad that I could have him for the job. Price I paid was also very reasonable, considering the quality of his work. If you are looking for a professional, trustworthy house inspector for a reasonable budget, look no further!
This is the second time I have required Stephan Tremblay of Northern Inspection's services. I highly recommend that anyone requiring a high quality, professional, trustworthy, reliable home inspection, report and explanation, call Stephan. I have found him to be highly knowledgeable, qualified, trustworthy, pleasant, honest and someone you will gladly recommend to others. A pleasure to deal with !
