Hime inspection

Josh arrived early and started working immediately. He respected the Covid rules. He seemed diligent and through in his review. He took the time to verify the installation dates of equipment, verified plumbing and went to the roof(s) to inspect conditions. He took pictures to illustrate his findings. He spoke to us after the inspection and provided us with an overview of his finding which aligned to the written report so there were no surprises. The report was sent to us as promised within the timeline agreed (about 5 hours after inspection). I would recommend Josh without hesitation.

Pre-listing home inspection

Carson Dunlop inspections are on the pricey side compared to many other inspection services. However the service itself is very good.

Our home inspector (Sheila) was very professional, efficient, and accommodating. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her services if you want a thorough and reliable home inspection.

Excellent service. I learned a lot from the inspector, as she took the time to point things our and explain them. I would happily use the service again and recommend it to anyone.

Carson Dunlop Home Inspection did an excellent and thorough job inspecting the house we purchased. The inspector, Gordon, was meticulous in his inspection and reporting. I would highly recommend them to protect your investment!

Met the challenge with aces!

The Buyer was unreasonable and rude. The Buyer mistreated each of the 5 people in attendance. Hal, the home inspector was "grace under fire". Patiently answering, re answering their many big and many nit picking questions, many asked several times. The home inspection should have taken 2 1/2 to 3 hours and we were there for 4 hours. Hal's report did get sent that night and although the report showed the home to have a few issues all were very fixable and could have been accomplished for a reasonable sum, the Buyer walked away from the purchase. Hal worked very late to get that report out after an exhausting client interaction. He was wonderful.

Thorough and Professional Home Inspection

I found the entire inspection process to be very well done. Carson Dunlop was recommended by our real estate agent. Since the house was built in 1967, we wanted to be sure to have a thorough and professional inspection.The inspector arrived on time and we went through the house together with a very detailed inspection. He took the time to answer all the questions I had. He discovered a number of minor issues that were highlighted in the final report that I would never have found myself. As well he had a variety of interesting methods to look for potential issues. The use of the thermal imaging camera was also well worth the additional cost.We were very pleased with the detailed final report, as well as the accompanying home maintenance book. Overall it was a very professional inspection and I would certainly recommend Carson Dunlop to anyone looking for a home inspection.

Home Inspection

The report was very informative. The fact that it was all through email made it extremely easy. Wish I could of been there to view it personally. The encyclopedia is definitely worth the look for regular maintenance and a more in depth understanding of the basic home aspects.

Home Inspection

Greg met us at our new home on time and prepared.
He did a thorough walk around the house and spent an hour on each floor. He provided live feedback as he went through and provided suggestions on how to best address the fixes.
He had excellent customer service skills and made us feel safe in our investment.
