Stephan was very thorough and personable. He gave very sound advice about ways to keep the home in good shape. The price was extremely reasonable. Will definitely recommend Northern Inspections to anyone buying a home!
Stephan was so very knowledgable and thorough. It was a very in depth inspection and he took the time to explain everything to us as he was doing it. The inspection report was ready within a couple hours and we really appreciated it. Very, very professional. Have absolutely no problem recommending his services.
Thanks again, Stephan.
We used Stephan and his team for 2 properties in Windsor, he was thorough and honest about each property. Because of his review, we were able to make an informed choice. Thanks Northern Home & Commercial Inspections!
Very knowledgable and thorough inspection. Stephan was patient with all of my questions and answered them with ease and expertise. I will definitely be recommending this company to others.
Stephan provided a very professional experience. We actually learned quite a lot about houses and the things to look for when buying one. We'd recommend Northern Inspections to anyone.
As a buyer and as a seller I chose Northern Inspection because I could see how my own home was thoroughly inspected by Northern Inspections and I wanted the same assurance when it came time for me to purchase. During my inspection process everything was pointed out to me and solutions were offered and so I had a clear picture of what needed immediate attention and what could be worked on over time. I have no hesitation in referring Northern Inspections to any home buyer as piece of mind is everything when making a huge investment.
Stephan arrived early at the house and got to work immediately. He met the home owner/seller and learned a few things about the house to aid in the inspection.
I felt comfortable speaking with Stephan and he answered all of my questions in language that I understood.
Bottom line was that I came away educated about home inspections and about home maintenance. It was a great experience that gave me confidence in my pending purchase, and some plans for future maintenance of the house.
Excellent and accurate home inspection, Stephan Prevent me from spending lots of money when he inspected my first time house and the problems he found were fixed by the seller.
We used Stephen Tremblay from Northern Home Inspections, he was very professional, friendly and knowledgable, everything you expect from a good home inspector. He suggested a few maintenance/repairs and picked up the things that may need doing that could be costly in the not too distant future. Highly recommended! You won't be disappointed!
I hired Northern Inspection to go through one of my offers for a home inspection and was greatly impressed right from the start. Not only was Stephan Tremblay profession from start to finish, his final report exceeded my expectations. It was in depth as well as thorough. Each section of the house was meticulously examined and explained in the report. I would highly recommend Stephan. He was outstanding to work with.
Highest level of home inspection I have seen. Stephan at Northern inspection is creating a league of his own with the quality work and knowledge that he provides for his clients! I will recommend to anyone that needs a home inspection done to try him out you will not be disappointed. Buying a house is a huge decision and Stephan assured me that what I was buying is worth what a paid.
I used Stephan twice, for my own house and an investment property. He was highly recommended by my realtor who I trust as well and is a good friend. He didn't disappoint, he hits all targets for what you want in a professional inspector, he's curious and professional, very friendly, has a ton of knowledge and experience and comes prepared with the latest technology. He is the only one I've used that uses the latest portable infrared technology to really ascertain if you have moisture and foundation issues. Even the end result is innovative, you can pay right there with Credit card using square and get a email receipt and his reports are so thorough sent via email same day!!!. Lastly that alone give him 5 stars but for me he goes beyond because even when your business is done he will recommend the best affordable people to fix the issues he found and he's very honest about his work, he won't recommended fixing things that don't need to be fixed immediately.
Had a wonderful experience with Stephan. The home inspection was highly detailed and extremely professionally handled. He took the time to explain his findings, answered my question and sent a very detailed report. I highly recommend Stephan to anyone needing a professional home inspection!
I was extremely happy and grateful for the thoroughness of the home inspection done by Stephen. The home I purchased (conditional on inspection) was 300km away from where I live (work was done in Windsor). I was not present for the inspection but received a very detailed report which gave throrough descriptions of the issues along with photos. Issues identified were not only the big issues but also the many little things which are easy to fix but could lead to bigger problems if left. I appreciate knowing about this so that I can be proactive. In the end, I backed out of the offer because there were significant issues. I would definately recommend Northern Inspections. They saved me a huge future expense. My home search continues and I will use them on the next offer I make!
I highly recommend these services! All emails and messages were responded to very quickly and all interactions were professional, courteous and personalized. The feedback on my home was candid, honest and cost saving efforts were shared which I greatly appreciated. I found Stephan to be an being aging and sincere professional that I will use again in the future.
Today I had the pleasure of meeting and watching Stephan complete my home inspection. Not only he was a true professional and thorough with his work, he went above and beyond the call of duty to make professional recommendationservices on projects I was looking to complete. I would recommend Stephan with my eyes closed.
Thanks for the great work.
I was thrilled with our recent Building Inspection experience provided by Stephan Tremblay of Northern Inspections as we were in the process of buying a commercial/residential building in southwestern Ontario.
Stephan proved himself to be very friendly, outgoing and extremely knowledgeable about the condition of the building we were interested in purchasing. As this was an older building, Stephan's level of expertise made his input extremely valuable. This was acquired I found out as a result of his past hands-on construction experiences, in particular with some older buildings. Stephan also showed the use of state-of-the-art technology which included an infra-red sensor device to detect any potential issues with the building. I also really appreciated Stephan's background in the construction industry and willingness to explain any details with respect to his inspection. His final comprehensive written report including pictures was one of the keys to us being able to buy our building with confidence in the state of it's structural repair.
Thank you again to Stephan and Northern Inspections for a job well done. I would have no hesitation to recommend their services to anyone requiring a home/retail/commercial type inspection.
As a first time home buyer I was really eager to know everything possible about my future home and I got exactly what I was looking for. Not only did Stephan allow me to follow him around like a puppy dog, but he also entertained all of my questions and gave me detailed and easy to understand answers. He provided excellent suggestions of things to do based upon the condition of the house and provided me with a very detailed breakdown of everything that we discussed/found in the inspection. I am now going forward with the purchase of the house without any hesitations, knowing that if I need any help or further explanation of something brought up in the report, that help is only a phone call or email away. I will not hesitate to use him in the future for my next home.
These guys are great, very helpful and informative, walked me through the whole house and was very detailed about all areas and I would defiantly recommend them.
They take their time and they have great customer service, an excellent company to deal with and I would hire them to do any of my inspections.
Stephen was great!!!! I would recommend this company to anyone. I did not feel rushed, or hesitant to ask any question!! Stephan was extremely thorough, and gave a lot of important tips on how a little bit of preventative maintenance can save you a lot in the long run!! I appreciated the report at the end too, so I can look back and review specific things of importance!! I thank the person that told me about him! Kudos to this company!
We recently requested the services of Stephan for two home inspections in Windsor and was very satisfied with his services. Both inspections were arranged to be done on the same day back-to-back. He was very early for both and walked us through every area except the crawl space for one property. However, even though we did not go under the crawl space, we felt like we did because he took very good standard and thermal pictures of all the relevant area under there and explained and showed us all he could.
The final report was very well done and included extensive and clear pictures and recommendations.
His honesty, approach and professionalism shines light bright lights and it is evident that he loves what he does and wants to help people.
I did a lot of research before choosing Stephan from Northern Inspections and all the indications and high recommendations told us that we made a great choice. We would recommend Stephan to anyone in a heartbeat.
Stephan was very thorough in his inspection , which I really appreciate, because of his professionalism and attention detail I was able to back out of a costly purchase and was able to continue searching and ended buying another home which he inspected to my satisfaction.
Thank you Stephan.
We were very happy that we chose Northern Inspections to provide us with a home inspection on a potential investment property. Stephan arrived right on time and was excellent to work with. He was knowledgeable, thorough and professional. He took the time to explain each area to us and, along with providing us with necessary renovations, he also had practical and inexpensive suggestions for cosmetic improvements. The 46-page detailed report included numerous photos and thermal images, along with a summary of things that needed attention. We highly recommend Northern Inspections and will be using their services again with our next property.
Did a pre inspection for the sale of my current home and an inspection for the home I'm buying. Northern Inpections is professional, provides vast amounts of insight, and is very thorough. I would not hesistate to use them again or recomend them to anybody buying or selling a home.
Given that I am a first-time home buyer, it was very important to have a proper inspection done. I was thrilled with how detailed and thorough Northern was with every little thing. Their report will be my Saturday to-do list for many weekends to come. I would recommend them whole-heartedly to anyone.
Stephan from Northern Inspections was very knowledgeable, punctual and professional. Stephan’s expertise and passion in century old homes was evident. Not only did he provide feedback on the current state of the house, but also suggested preventative maintenance and restoration tips for our century home. He made it clear which repairs should be tackled immediately and those of lesser priority. He also had suggestions for local vendors and services.
When we arrived Stephan was already there inspecting the exterior of the house. He provided us with the detailed inspection report, including photos, within 1.5 hours of completing the inspection.
We are happy that we chose Northern Inspections to inspect our new home!
Stephan show high level of professiona list and respect. He asked us to join him and he was on time. He explained to us what's he doing every step of the way. He answered our questions and provide suggestions and ideas on how to fix the few things that needed fixing. I highly recommend his services.
He not only told us but gave us a photographic written review so as the home owner we knew what and where we needed to repair immediately with the older home we purchased, but also what should be done in the next 5 to ten years so we could budget for it.
Thank you so much Stephen.
We cannot recommend Northern Home Inspections enough. Professional, courteous and informative when booking an inspection- no hidden costs, everything is explained very carefully in advance and no surprises the day of the inspection. Stephan was not just punctual but early and went above and beyond to inspect everything carefully and thoroughly and share his observations throughout. We really enjoyed working with Stephan- he is passionate, communicative and inclusive throughout this whole process and great with people. We are very satisfied with his comprehensive report that allowed us to make important decisions regarding the purchasing and maintenance of the biggest investment of our lives- our home. Thanks Stephan!
Our experience with Stephan was amazing. We are first time home buyers and he walked through every part of the house with us and explained everything to us! He definitely went above and beyond! I would highly recommend this company to anyone!
We have actually used Northern Inspections twice, and couldn't have been more pleased with our experience! Very thorough, professional and honest. I can't say enough about our level of satisfaction, and I would not hesitate to recommend this company to anyone!
My partner and I used Stephan at Northern Home Inspections for our home inspection and we were wowed by his professionalism, knowledge, and approachbility. We felt comfortable asking him questions - but there was little need. He took us through the house breaking down his findings in a way that we both understood. He made reccomendations for preventative maintenance, shared his knowledge on the area, and was even able to suggest trades proffesionals for projects that we mentioned wanting to start later on. We felt completely at ease during the process and more importantly we felt completely at ease purchasing our home.
After researching extensively on home inspectors I knew that we would not be disappointed with Northern Home - but I had no idea what a great experience we'd have. From Stephan's friendly emails before we even found the house, to his lengthy and detailed photo and text report, our home inspection was without a doubt the best experience we could have asked for.
My move was from Western Canada to Windsor and purchasing a house sight unseen so I had to trust my home inspector as to the condition of the house and the area the house was located in. First house he went to inspect was not suitable and Stephen was on the phone to me explaining the problems with the house as soon as he realized I was not spending my money well. I chose a few houses that he thought were not in the best area and 2nd house he inspected was a charm. Passed with a few problems that are easy to fix and he had thermal images and a written report and pictures explaining everything to me within hours of completing the inspection and all my questions answered. He clearly explained the exact problems and what needed to be done to repair and why each repair needed to be done.
Very professional work and yet easy to talk to and questions answered in a language I understood.
Stephan is a very nice person to deal with. He doesnt take long and works fast. Told us all the problems with our property and how to fix them. He even gave us reliable contacts to call for work to be done. I woukd definatley recommend him forbhome inspections. 100% satisfied.
I live overseas and was not able to view the property myself before making an offer so a home inspection was very necessary. Northern Inspections was incredibly thorough and professional. I received a detailed, digital report within an hour of completion of the inspection. The inspector was very thorough and knowledgeable and the service was courteous and timely.
having a home inspection was very important to us for piece of mind in going into a new residence. Stephan the owner was so skilled at conducting the inspection ,we felt complete confidence in the service he performed. he furnished us with a complete report within hours and photos of everything.he encouraged us to contact him at any time if we needed anything.i would strongly recommend this company to perform this important service.
Stephan was extremely professional and personable during the home inspection. He provided explanations for all of his findings and answered any questions we had regarding the inspection itself. I would definitely recommend Stephan for any future home inspections.
Stephan was great. He really knows his stuff. He took the time to explain anything I had questions about and made recommendations throughout the whole inspection. I'm first time home buyer and I can't express how glad I am that he was there to help me through the home inspection process. He is very thorough and professional. I'd definitely recommend him to anyone and everyone.
We hired Northern Inspections to inspect the home we wished to purchase based on their reputation and excellent reviews.We were certainly not disappointed !.Stephan was very professional and took the time to point out areas of concern such as outside cracks in the stucco ,plumbing fittings that could be a concern down the road.and recommendations on how to repair them,such as types of sealant to use etc.He was very thorough checking the furnace system,plumbing system,electrical,roofing,and all toilet and sink fixtures,to ensure they were all operating correctly.
I was impressed at his thoroughness in checking all the foundations for moisture using the thermal imaging detector, as well as providing photos of all systems as they were checked by him.
We would recommend Stephan of Northern Inspections to anyone who is purchasing a home and wants an inspector who has the knowledge to point out every detail as well as recommending ways to repair minor areas of concern to keep the home safe . Al & Jeannine C
I hired Northern Inspections to do an inspection of the property I was looking to purchase. Stephen was very professional, courteous and walked me through the entire inspection. He explained each and every item that needed attention in the house and also highlighted the benefits of other features. I felt that I was in good hands with Northern Inspection and I would highly recommend them to others.
We had a great experience with Northern Inspections. Stephan accomodated our busy schedule and was very thorough. He is very skilled and reviewed the deficiencies and remedies with us. We received our report very quickly. We've already recommended him to friends who just purchased their first home.
Stefan did an excellent job in inspecting a property that we are buying. He responded quickly and professionally to our initial request. His inspection was detailed and enlightening. His previous experience in the building industry as well as his obvious intensive training in home inspections, as well as his ability to use a wide variety of technology in the inspection was impressive. He goes the extra mile. In addition, we received an comprehensive report with photographs of every aspect within hours of his completion of the physical inspection. And he is simply a very nice guy!
We were so pleased with Stephen's inspection. He took his time, was thorough,clearly explained deficiencies and recommended solutions. He has a great knowledge in his field of expertise. His report to us was very detailed. He accommodated us when inspection times had to be changed. He was extremely courteous. I would recommend he be your first call for any inspection. You will not be sorry.
My wife and I hired Northern for my home last month and both of us were very impressed. As a masonry contractor, I'm not a big fan of most inspectors as I feel that sometimes their experience doesn't add up. But, I needed someone to look at the things I'm not comfortable with like electrical and plumbing and structure, etc.,,After talking with Stephan at the inspection and learning about his background in building I knew my wife and I chose the right guy. He was so good, that we hired him to inspect a larger income property for us. Again, his inspection, knowledge and report were awesome. If you need a guy, this is it. Don't bother looking anywhere else. We will always recommend Stephan at Northern Inspections. Grazie il mio amico!
The inspection was inclusive of state of the art equipment and Stephan included his customer in the tour and in making his recommendations. His report was thorough and will benefit us far into the future as a reference tool to use in making improvements and in knowing what to watch out for in terms of potential areas that may need to be addressed down the road. His report included pictures/photos so you have a great resource. He definitely sets the industry standard and others out there should look to him to match his work ethic. We have referred other family to him as we were referred by a former neighbour.
Stephan was fantastic, far surpassing my expectations of what a home inspection would include. This is my first home purchase and I had a lot of questions buying an older property. He took the time to cover every square inch of the house and detached garage, and we had lengthy discussions without him trying to rush through or avoid any questions.
He is a genuinely friendly, personable yet professional individual. He clearly knows his industry, keeps his relevant education up to date, and aims for customer satisfaction. I do not hesitate for a minute to recommend him to anyone.
Stephan completed our home inspection thoroughly and efficiently! He is extremely knowledgeable and took the time to explain all of his findings to us. We received a detailed report with pictures right after the inspection. We definitely feel more confident about our home purchase after Stephan's inspection!
Stephan from Northern Inspections was great to work with. He conducted an inspection on the house I was purchasing. He was extremely thorough and took the time to explain everything to me and made sure I understood and answered all questions I had. The report I received shortly after was great as well.
I heard about Stephan from a friend. He was very professional, and punctual. He explained his findings, and wrote everything up in a detailed report. I was impressed with his work and would recommend him to everyone that needs a home inspection.
Stephan was amazing at his job. Right from the moment I explained the situation with our company. He jumped right in and went over and beyond what we needed. Stephan knew what he was doing and did his job very thoroughly. I would recommend him to anyone needing an inspection.
Stephan provide a home inspection for the couple that purchased our home. We were so impressed with how polite and professional he was while inspection our house, that we called him to do the inspection on our new home. Stephan was not only professional, he was also a pleasure to deal with. He took the time to explain everything and was also great to just joke with and talk with while he was there. He was very, very thorough (even though it was pouring rain that day) and used up to date technology to emphasize the points he made during the inspection. Stephan provide a greatly detailed report within a few hours, emailed directly to me. I was definitely impressed by him and would suggest anyone use him. Also, he did not rip us off, great pricing too!!!
We were extremely pleased with the service provided by Stephen at Northern Inspection. As first time home buyers we were nervous making our first home purchase and Stephen went above and beyond to make the process stress free. He performed an extremely thorough and professional inspection and went through every aspect with us and provided us with a thorough written report to refer back to. I highly recommend Stephen and Northern Inspection if you are looking for a professional and comprehensive inspection.
Stephan Tremblay from Northern Inspection Group was referred to us from a close friend who said he was amazing. He was very knowledgeable compared to home inspectors we have had in the past and wasn't afraid to get his hands dirty in the process. The price was very afforable and his report was very clear and easy to understand with great pictures. Would recommend to anyone!
Stephan was very thorough and takes great pride in his work. He climbed up onto the roof, checked every tap, drains, electrical panels, furnace ect. What we really were impressed with was his infra-red camera to check for water and mould. It was a great ease to our minds to know we had a dry basement. Stephan gave us the confidence to go ahead and purchase our home. Thank you Stephan!!
It was a pleasure working with Stephan from Northern Inspection, as a property investor in the US I was looking for a small property to call home, even though I have experience purchasing over 10 properties in the past 10 years and I am pretty good determining cosmetic repairs budgets I needed a very through inspection of roofing, electrical and plumbing to ensure there were no surprises and that all repairs were included in my budget. He was very helpful making recommendations to pick the right area as I was not familiar with Windsor and will be occupying the property. He provided me with a very detailed inspection with photos and step by step of the areas that needed to be addressed as well as recommendations of people that could eventually do the work. The price was very competitive and included a 90 days warranty that no many inspectors in the area offered. I will highly recommended them to anyone, as a matter of fact I already recommended them to my Real Estate Agents that agreed that they were better than the other inspectors they usually use for their clients. Looking forward to need their service in my next purchase.
I was referred to Stephan by my sister, who was referred by her friend who was referred by her co-worker. There is a reason why I kept the chain going! Stephan was an absolute delight to work along side of at the inspection. He brought a lot of tools like a thermal camera (way cool!). He did a fantastic job, he got onto the roof and into the attic. Afterwards we spoke about what he found and he made me feel very good about the home. The report was beyond my expectation. The furnace had some issues when we moved in, but the inspection warranty covered the $400 repairs. Can you say amazing? Yes I would refer Northern Inspection Group to anyone!!! :)
