Townhouse inspection

David was really patient with my questions on site and by email. He is friendly and explains issues with me thoroughly so that I understand what the problems are, future risks, etc. I could tell he enjoys what he does and shadowing him throughout the inspection was fun and informative. If he didn't know the answer to my question, he would call his contacts who are experts in that field to get their opinions instead of giving me a quick answer. I got his report within a day and it was easy to read with photos and descriptions. I would definitely recommend him to anyone that is looking for an inspector.

Townhouse Inspection

David is the best home inspector we've ever had. He has skills and knowledge beyond what you would see in most home inspectors out there and he has all the necessary equipment to inspect fully and properly. You haven't had a true home inspection until you've had David inspect your home.

Home Inspection

We had David notified on short notice for a home inspection and he was kind enough to do it for us. We saw his reviews on Homestars and tried him out and we are glad we did. We had used other home inspectors but they were not as good as David. David was very detailed and had pictures to go with his inspection. He showed us his findings after the inspection was done and down to even a front stone on the house was loose he even noticed. We were very impressed! He also gave us info on how things can be repaired and maintained with a list of people he knows and trusts to do repairs. Thanks again for your help David we will recommend you to others and request your help again on the next property!

Condo Inspection

David did a great job. He found a number of deficiencies in our brand new unit, and made several recommendations to reduce the ongoing maintenance inside the unit. I would recommend David to anyone looking for a thorough inspection.

Home Inspection

My wife and I needed a home inspection for a townhouse in Port Moody that we ended up purchasing. David came highly recommended and was able to come out on short notice (1 day). He was both professional and very friendly. We enjoyed shadowing him for around 3 hours learning all the ins and outs of our new home. The inspection was quite thorough and afterwords he provided us with a great, easy to read report, along with recommendations for fixes/changes we should make. We would highly recommend his services to anyone!

Home Inspection for a new home

David Fairbairn inspected a home we were about to purchase. He did a though investigation and found problems that we would have never found. Because of these details he discovered we were able to negotiate $9,500 of the purchase price!! That is money well spent!!
I highly recommend David for his passion towards his profession and his detailed reports.

House Imspection

David thoroughly inspected the house that we intended to buy and explained all the cons and pros of the place which greatly helped us make up our mind about the purchase. He is very friendly and I strongly recommend him for pre-purchase property inspection.
