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 !
Excellent home inspection provided by Stephan @ Northern Inspections.
Stephan clearly explained the home inspection process prior prior to beginning and answered any questions we had.
The home also had an in ground pool which was also inspected free of charge.
Thermal photography along with the standard inspection was performed in the basement and along exterior walls and thanks to Stephan's explanation were were given extra piece of mind.
I would recommend Stephan and Northern Inspections to anyone looking for a great home Inspector.
I had an appointment booked he same day, roughly 5 days prior to the inspection. The final report was generated within a few hours after the inspection, much sooner than we thought.
Stephan Tremblay goes above and beyond for his clients ... from accommodating busy schedules to making himself available even after the home is sold. Steph is knowledgeable, friendly and very thorough... he really is great at what he does. As a real estate professional it is so important to refer only those you trust and steph certainly tops my list. :)
Stephen is a great home inspector. He understands the ins and outs of the business and leverages his experience in construction in order provide an exception unparalleled service.
It also helps that he responds very quickly to phone calls, texts and emails.
I would definitely recommend him to anyone in the market for an inspection.
Stephan has his certifications which not all inspectors have. He came on very short notice on the weekend to do an inspection as we were only in town for 1 day. His report helps to explain to new home owners what you should be paying attention to including photos of potential current/future issues in your home. His inspection was paid for by one request we added to the purchase contract.
Stephan is always on time, usually early. He has over delivered each and every time that one my clients has used his services. He is extremely knowlegable, answers every question and delivers an excellent very detailed report upon completion. A true learning experience for my clients. He explains the issue, how to fix, and how to maintain going forward. Stephan is always my first recommendation when my clients require an inspection.
Stephan is a true professional! His business is truly run by an individual who cares. He is a very knowledgeable person and his work is quite thorough. He was very detailed when answering any questions I had and he also provided recommendations for every issue that was observed during the inspection. His final report was very detailed and well organized and was sent promptly. I would highly recommend Stephan and Northern Inspections!
So incredibly happy with the service! It is our first home and I felt so comfortable signing the offer letter after Stephen sent us the inspection. Can you believe we almost didn't do an inspection !? Which I must add was super timely and so thorough! He gave us suggestions and referred us to other companies that can assist us with any TLC our home needed.
Thanks Northern Inspections. I have and will continue to pass on your name!!
Stephan at Northern Inspections did an excellent detailed job inspecting my new home. He took time to explain a lot of things in detail, and taught me alot along the way.
Thank you very much! Will be using you again for any future real estate purchases!
My husband and I were very pleased with Stephan. He was on time and very professional. He gave us the option to either follow him around or walk around ourselves and check out our prospective house. At the end of the inspection he briefed us on a couple of concerns and provided some solutions. Our home inspection report was emailed to me within a couple hours which was great too! I would highly recommend Stephan and Northern Inspections.
Stephan is the consummate professional!
He was ahead of schedule in arriving at the home, was thorough in his methods and was comprehensive in answering my questions.
With the inspection itself, probably the best part of the experience was his use of the FLEER camera... what an incredibly sophisticated piece of equipment and certainly an invaluable tool.
By explaining to me how it worked, Stephan was able to build my confidence that the home I was about to purchase would be perfect for my entire family.
Thank you Stephan for such an amazing job!
Stephan was very pleasant and thorough in his inspection of our new home. We needed someone to come out to the property within 3 days due to a fast closing. He was very prompt and thorough and took the time to answer any of our questions to ensure we understood what he was checking and what he was looking for. Excellent experience and would use him again if need be.
Stephan was extremely thorough. He took time to answer any questions that I had during the inspection and provided recommendations to resolve any issues that arose. After the inspection was complete, I felt that I could make the decision to purchase a house. I would strongly recommend using Northern Inspection before making your next big purchase.
I like the fact that Stephan was very prompt and thorough with his inspection, Stephan also explained the issues at hand and offered solid advise. I would highly recommend Northern Inspections for your next home inspection.
I was impressed by the service we received from Stephan. He was prompt, courteous, and professional in all of our interactions. He is extremely knowledgeable and provided us with numerous suggestions and explained the reason behind it. He was very thorough, arrived at the inspection early, and provided us with the written report the same afternoon. His experience helped us to be confident in our decision to buy a home. We are very glad that we went with Northern Inspections for our home inspection.
Truth be told!! Bar none this was the most in depth and informative inspection we have ever had. We were from out of town looking to purchase a property and after an exhaustive search on who we think we could trust based on experience, education,reviews,time in industry, and being up to date, Northern Inspections is the one we went with. We now have a realist snapshot on the biggest purchase of our lives as far as condition of property. I WILL not only use him again in future purchases but recommend his services 110%. Great resource to have!
I found Stephan Tremblay to be one of the most reliable, courteous, respectful, professional, prompt and conscientious individual with whom it was a great pleasure to deal with. He is a person who I could easily have as a trusted friend.
Stephan arrived on site as prescribed and had our home inspection and report completed within 24 hours. His report was easy to navigate and provided us with valuable insight as to the overall condition of the house. I would recommend Stephan for anyone requiring a home inspection!
Had a home inspection done by Stephan Tremblay, March 19, 2017. The transaction of selling our home a purchasing new home happened so fast, and the inspection was done on a Sunday. From the second we walked on to the property, Stephan was explaining details in the construction, possible faults to look for, and the overall condition of the home.
Completed in a thorough and timely manner, while mentioning a couple of small improvements to be made in the future. Within a couple of hours after the inspection, we received a 30 page email including colour photos, and thermal images of all walls.
Overall, great inspection, great great learning experience, at a great price!
Stephan provided a complete home inspection with professionalism on a not so weather friendly day. He then provided a complete and easy to read report with solution suggestions and tips. Our report was received within 24 hours of the inspection, which was done on a friday late in the day.
Stephen was clean and professional and provided the service he promised and much more. He gave us confidence in our purchase and gave us straight answers and professional opinions when asked. He was personable and a joy to work with. Any issues that arouse within the inspection process were clearly explained and solutions were suggested.
I would recommend Stephen's services in a second.
Firstly I just want to Stephan for clear cut excellent report. I have had many home inspections done over the years, so I know the standard forms used by so many that really have never meet our needs or provide a true report of the home.
With the report from Northern Inspections not only did we get a true detail report with pictures indicating the problems. But also addressed issues that need immediate attention as well as items that should be attended over time.
By far the best home inspection that I have had done in my experience of purchasing homes.
A big thank you to Northern Inspections. First, for a thorough detailed report with relevant pictures.
The report gave me the information I needed to make the decision I needed whether to purchase the property I desired.
It pointed out facts about the house I did not see when I viewed the house.
They were professional and friendly and I would recommend this company to anyone considering buying a house or building.
Stephan came to inspect a house that I was looking to purchase. He was professional and easy to talk with. He provided a detailed assessment and ended up discovering extensive structural damage that would have cost me tens of thousands of dollars to fix. His expertise saved me from some major issues down the road! I will definitely be calling him for my next home inspection!
Inspection was very thorough and informative. Told us what the biggest priorities would be and how to go about fixing them. Wasn't overwhelming with information and took time to explain everything face-to-face. Definitely would recommend to others.
Stephen was very thorough and took the time to explain everything to me. I'm a young guy but that doesn't change how the inspection goes. He educated me and informed me about everything. To some, what would have seemed like a nightmare to-do list, is much more achievable now that I understand what's going on. He was there early and stayed for 2 hours. His report is detailed and descriptive, and easy to understand. For my first ever home inspection, I can say this went better than I ever expected.
I had two home inspections done by two different inspectors, Stephan being the latter of the two. Though I will not name the other inspector, I will say that the service that Stephan provided was in another league, all on its own. The extreme detail he provided with each and every issue, as well as going as far as suggesting various ways to repair it and their associated costs was bar-none. Stephan was exceptionally knowledgeable, punctual, and courteous; and executed his duties in a professional manner. I would, without reservation, recommend Stephan at Northern Home Inspections, to any and everyone looking to acquire the most in-depth and honest home inspection.
Mr. Tremblay diligently inspected my recently purchased house. I liked his service because he was thorough and insightful in identifying and inspecting the property. My personal conversation with him was very cordial. He took time to explain the importance of several areas that required immediate attention. He appeared to be experienced in his professional endeavor and I would recommend him to others and also would consider him for my future need.
I was extremely pleased with the service provided by Stephan; he did an excellent job! He educated us throughout the whole process, he was very pleasant and it was easy to interact with him. He demonstrated a lot of knowledge during the inspection which was very detailed and thorough. He went above and beyond what was expected of him, providing additional information which was very useful for us going forward with this project. I have no hesitation in recommending him to others who might be looking for a reliable and professional Home Inspector.
Stephan of Northern Inspections did a great job for us. He is professional, thorough and very easy to work with.We were extremely pleased with his work. He explained in detail the inspection process, and provided us with a written report that was delivered in a timely fashion. He made our decision to purchase our condo an easy one.
We HIGHLY recommend his services.
I strongly recommend this company, they do a thorough inspection and they explain everything in details. The report was done promptly and easy to follow including pictures. The price was right. Inspector was very knowledgable in the business and gave me ideas, store to use for certain renos and links to visit for grants on renos.
I highly recommend Stephan for your home inspection, I feel he went above and beyond what other home inspectors usually do. He took the time to explain every step along the way, making sure we understood what he was looking at throughout the inspection. He was like a verbal instruction manual for buying our home. In our particular case he was inspecting a 101 year old house, in which he had experience restoring century homes in the past. It turned out to be a great bonus for us. His report was well documented and delivered an hour after the inspection was completed.
Stephan did my home inspection for me on November 10, 2016. It is my first home and he gave me a lot of information.
He was very friendly from the minute I arrived at the house. He was very knowledgeable and walked me through everything. He was straight to the point and let me know what needed to be repaired/replaced in the house.
His report was ready within an hour and it was very detailed, easy to understand and very organized.
I will definitely recommend Stephan to anyone who is looking to buy a home!!!
Thanks again Stephan!!!
Stephan conducted the inspection for me. One word. Thorough! He checked every part of home and was extremely thorough in his inspection. He also took time to educate me on his findings and why it's an issue. I am definitely going to use his services in my future investment properties.
Good luck, guys!
Stephan did our home Inspection for us on October 2 2016. From the start he was very friendly and appeared to be very knowledgeable about home. Starting with the exterior he pointed out a few minor things but also gave us tips on how to rectify the issues. Going further into the inspection this only continued. By the end of the inspection I had a very good idea about the quality of the home we were buying and also alot about how I can and will repair and maintain it as well. I would highly recommend northern inspections to family and friends and anyone who else may be in need of a great inspector!
Thank you Stephan!
Stephan is very professional.
Stephan came in to do a second inspection on a property that was previously inspected by Seacliff homes. I can honestly say that the stuff Stephan found on his inspection that was missed by the first inspector left me in awe.
It just goes to show you that Stephan takes the time to treat your home as if he was buying it himself. I would highly recommend this inspector.
He is very well educated and also gives great advice.
Highly recommend. I used Northern Inspections for my first house. Stephan arrived on time and performed a thorough inspection in a timely manner. He walked me through each step of the inspection and provided simple, clear explanations for what needed to be repaired/replaced and by when. Report was organised, easy to understand, and ready within an hour.
We recently had Stephan inspect a property for us. Being out of town buyers and going by the internet and pictures we were sure the home was very nice and a good buy. After having Stephan go through the house it was apparent that the house was cheaply renovated to look good. He detected many unnoticeable problems. With his equipment Stephan detected that the roof was leaking even though there was no dampness. The owner fixed the roof. Stephan actually returned to inspect the job and found out it was not done properly. Because of his inspection we did not purchase the house.
We will definitely use and recommend Stephan to anyone looking to purchase a house in the area that he covers.
Please do not be foolish enough to buy a house without getting an inspection!
Very knowledgeable and thorough, report was delivered within hours of the inspection and was detailed with tips on how to fix any findings that needed attention. Would recommend to anyone for this type of service.
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.
Stephan's inspection of a commercial plaza and restaurant in Windsor was fantastic. As a long time investor, I have been privy to many, many building inspectors, appraisers and engineers. I found Stephan to be extremely professional, knowledgeable and easy to communicate with. His findings were spot-on and his finished report was surprisingly detailed and informative. I will be adding Northern Inspections to my Windsor team of professionals for all of my future purchases and encourage all investors looking in the Essex County area to do likewise. Kudos on a job well done. It was a pleasure.
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.
