My wife and I had the pleasure of having David from Fairbairn Inspection Services check out a home that was built in the early 80's. David is extremely knowledgeable in regards to all aspects of home building and explains things in plain English not expecting you to have been in construction business yourself for the last 10 years! He found a variety of issues of which he broke down into a list of pricey fixes, needs immediate attention and then a short term/long term list of items. I felt this is good as it's easy to go into an older home and expect having to fix everything that's wrong but David took a practical approach and made recommendations in order to accommodate our maintenance budget. Also what I felt was good was that he recommended secondary inspections when he wasn't 100% positive of the condition of something rather than giving it a pass/fail (in our case it was the foundation drain tile system as there was efflorescence on the basement cement walls). The biggest thing I liked about David is you feel comfortable around him and at ease during the whole process. The report he provided was emailed to us within 24 hours and was easy to read and understand. I will be recommending David to all my friends and family if they should ever need a home inspection.
