First-home buying experience peace of mind!

We wanted a pre-purchase inspection on our new home before removing subjects and David was recommended to us. He walked us through our home, room-by-room offering his findings and tips for remediation/resolution in a clear manner. His inspection was very thorough and the detailed inspection report was delivered to us within a few hours.

We are very happy with Fairbairn Home inspection services and will recommend to friends!

Home Inspection

David came on time and provided professional service. He is very personalized with the client when explaining the issues and has a lot of knowledge on issues relating to potential problems with the house. His report comes within 2 hours after the inspection. I will definitely engage his service again and will not hesitate to recommend his service to friends.

Condo purchase

The home inspector was very thorough and provided a detailed report. He was straight forward in pointing out deficiencies and explained whether or not they were of concern. As a result, we felt well informed to make a decision. I should add that this inspector was open and available to answer any questions during the inspection and after we received his report.
This is the second time we have used this inspection service. I highly recommend them.

Home inspection

Dave was honest and thorough. its honestly hard finding someone who is good at their job and honest in my opinion from previous experiences. His expertise, communication and professionalism has left us feeling great and lucky when we think of the stressful time of when we were going through the process of purchasing a property. We would highly highly recommend him to new home buyers because we were and he assisted us in our journey to make the decision that were still very happy with. We have used him multiple times and have recommended him to our family members.

Great work

Friendly, professional and knowledgeable! Pointed out a few deficiencies that led to additional credits from the seller too. The PDF report is clear and easy to download. Plus lots of useful little pointers when it comes to future maintenance. Highly recommended.

Home inspection Coquitlam

David was very efficient and explained all the issues with the home. It was built in the 1950s with very few updates so there was a lot to cover. He offered suggestions and gave estimates for cost of repairs with a priority list of most urgent to less urgent. I am very please with the inspection and would highly recommend this company to anyone looking for a building inspection.

Home Inspection

David was a most excellent resource as we looked to purchase our first home. From his professionalism to his keen eye and ability to explain issues within the home in laymans terms, David helped give the reassurance needed to make such a large purchase. He also pointed out some minor problems that would need to get taken care of, which we were then able to negotiate into our deal. Thank you, David, for your expert eye and experience!
