We hired Gary as a recommendation and we are so glad we did. Due to a snow storm in Calgary we were unable to review his finding in person but he called and gave us a very in depth overview and answered all our questions. After a few days he called back to make sure we made it into town OK as we had a blow out on HWY2 and asked if we had any questions.
Gary's report is by far the best report I have ever seen and he was a pleasure to work with.
I would highly recommend him.
I appreciate you taking the time to review the Home Inspection experience, together with the report. That first snowfall in Calgary (see image - Crowchild North) was huge and a staggering 4 hour drive to the property; a drive which normally takes 40 to 45 minutes. That said, compared to a blow out on highway 2 in that weather, doesn't even compare. You were very lucky indeed and it was a miracle that no-one was injured.
'Good Luck' in your new home.
There are three reasons why I would have no hesitation in recommending Gary to anyone intending to engage a home inspector. These are:
1. His willingness to take the time to share his observations during an inspection. Gary would highlight potential issues and offer solutions that, in our case, put our minds at rest.
2. His report was thorough, well presented and clear. The accompanying pictures were particularly helpful. His communication skills in general are very good.
3. Throughout the process, he sought to establish a working rapport, from the time he was approached to do the work until the final submission of the report. This contributed to a positive experience.
All in all, this was a job well done. Thanks, Gary.
Gary was incredibly flexible - as we had a bit of a crazy schedule to work around. He was easy to reach when we had to adjust times, and was amazingly accommodating! Through out the inspection he carefully explained things and patiently answered our questions. We have dealt with other inspectors in the past who have whipped through the house and while the inspection may have been completely accurate, we felt as though we were being a pain asking questions as the inspector was definitely rushed. Dealing with Gary was completely the opposite. He took us through the inspection and was extremely thorough. This was a house that had lots of renovations to do and he gave us very detailed information about the house as well as shared his opinion (as a good friend or member of the family would do). He went above and beyond in every way, including contacting us well after we had received our report to let us know about a product on the market that could help us remedy one of the concerns we had about the house. Gary was instrumental in helping us make the decision of whether or not we wanted to go through with this purchase and we are writing because we want to share with others the excellent service he gave to us. Hopefully this is our last home purchase, but if not, we will definitely seek Gary's services again.
Gary is very professional and thorough. It was a pleasure to deal with him on two occasions. He explains each step with you and will answer any and all questions you have. He makes the home inspection process very understandable. His written report and photos are very detailed and informative.
Thank you for your review. It was nice meeting you both and being part of your journey from another province to Alberta. I'm glad we were able to eventually find you a nice home - minus the 'Gas Leak' of course! :-)
