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!

Superb Service

David was very thorough and detailed. His most impressive attribute was his attention to small details that people would easily missed. He was very detailed with explaining his findings and was very patient in answering our questions. He was very friendly throughout the process and was very pleasant to work with. You can see his enthusiasm in his work and it definitely gave us, the customers, a strong confidence booster.

Home inspection

This is my second time working with david. He always does a wonderful job with home inspections and I chose to work with him again because he has great attention to detail, is extremely thorough and explains things really well. I would 100% hire him again when the time comes for me to buy my third home.

Home Inspection

David did a fantastic job inspecting a home we had (conditionally) purchased. He was very thourough in his walk through, included many pictures in the final report and took the time to explain everything. He even answered our questions on many aspects we were unfamiliar with.

Best Inspector Ever

I would highly recommend Fairbairn Inspection Services to anyone who need home inspection. David, the inspector, is not only professional, but also very patient and responsible. Not like just going for a quick walk-through, David spent 3 hours to inspect the 2300 sqft house we intend to buy. He checked everywhere possible, using his professional device, and went through the report with us at the end. Within an hour after the inspection, an comprehensive report had been sent to our email. David is the best home inspector I have ever seen!

Home inspection for new home purchase

We chose David after a friend recommended him to us. David was professional and extremely knowledgeable whilst conducting an inspection of a home we purchased. He was able to find the smallest flaws and after the inspection, he provided a detailed written report with verbal explanation and recommendations. I am overly impressed with the quality of service and would recommend him to anyone needing a home inspection.

Great Home inspection, saved us few thousand dollars

David did inspection on our new home. It was very through and helpful. He found an issue that water leaks from chimney to basement. It could've been easily missed. We saved few thousand dollars after seller agreed to reduce the price for the fix.
Strongly recommended. Also remember to do your own research. Educate yourself so the inspector can work better with you.
