Professional! Prompt! Polite!
Our experience with Gary and Sherlock Homes Inspectors was excellent. We had an offered to purchase an older home and were concerned about the extent of renovations and repairs needed.
Gary's thorough assessment revealed the true extent of the problems and found several more. On the basis of his findings we withdrew our offer, knowing we would have bought far more problems that we bargained for. Gary's inspection no doubt saved us thousands.
We thoroughly recommend Gary and Sherlock Homes for your home inspection needs.

Hi Stacey and Michael,
Thank you for your kind comments and I'm glad our findings were able to help you to make an informed decision. I agree with your comments, it needed 10's of thousands spending in obvious, serious and unforeseen issues. A lucky escape indeed!
Sherlock Homes Inspectors.
Hired Gary at Sherlock Homes Inspectors, who came highly recommended to complete the electrical work & CAT 6 networking system in my recently converted man cave. His standard of work and detail was incredible and after testing existing circuits, he found lots of faults like reversed wires and one circuit even had a staple through it! After he’d finished, I told my colleague how pleased I was and he said: “you should be” Gary was the QA/QC Electrical Inspector for the South Health Campus Hospital project, it’s great to know the work has been completed to a very high standard. Awesome!
Gary inspected a "well maintained" property we were going to purchase in Nanton this July and discovered a host of problems with the roof, electrical and siding. In the end we walked away from the property and likely saved ourselves years of repair and Reno's. Very happy with his practical approach and candid demeanor. Called him again for the next house.
Many thanks for your comments, I'm sure you had a lucky escape with that property - especially the issues with the indoor swimming pool, on top of everything else. I think the sellers were very unrealistic in terms of your offer, it was quite conservative given the huge amount of work required.
I was completely blown away with his very efficient and organized inspection and had no idea of all the things he covered with much detail - from roof and complete exterior to his thorough detail of the interior from attic to every individual room - and with thermal imaging he missed nothing. We have had inspections before which entailed all of 20 minutes. He has followed up with e-mails to me to make sure the Condo Association are acting on the recommended repairs. He is conscientious, efficient and trustworthy and I would gladly recommend him to you.
It was a pleasure to meet you and 'thank you' very much for your kind comments and review. Should you have any questions now or in the future regarding the Condo Board please be sure to give me a call.
All the very best to you in your new home.
