Timely, professional, thorough services!

Home Suite Home Inspections (HSHI) provided timely services twice during our home buying adventure. Mark and George were extremely professional, friendly, and responsive during each home visit. They completed comprehensive investigations within the very short timeframes we had to work within. They were honest and forthcoming in their assessments and their services are excellent value for money. I highly recommend HSHI! Thank you!

Thank you so much for taking the time to share your feedback. It was truly our pleasure working with you two on both these homes. I believe that you both ended up with the right home and that it was worth the wait. If you have any further questions about the home don't hesitate to contact us once you've moved in.

Home Inspection

George came highly recommended by a trusted friend and I was so thankful I hired him to do my home inspection. He is very knowledgeable and made sure my new home was safe for my family to move into. He was always available to answer questions and supplied additional information to explain dangerous issues. Would definitely recommend to others

Renovation inspection

We did a complete renovation of our newly purchased house. We wanted to make sure that the work was completed as per contract and up to code.
George not only provided the inspection report on site, but also followed up with a detailed picture summary (with thermal imaging & drone pictures), and report on work not completed as per contract. This really helped us to get work done up to code by the contractor.
George did an excellent job, was very helpful, detailed explanation in person & on report and very responsive.

Thank you very much for taking the time out of your day to give us such a great detailed review. I'm thrilled that our report is helping with the issues you're having with the contractor. I hope it also helps you with some of the additional issues that we identified that were not within his scope of work.

Let us know if you require anything in the future.

Thank you George and Mark!

As a new homeowner, I was so thankful for the expert insight that George and Mark provided with their inspection report and the corresponding repairs. They went above and beyond the call of duty with their prompt responses to emails, texts and phone calls and suggestions of how to do things more efficiently. I would highly recommend this team of professionals.

Home inspection

George did a home inspection for the house we purchased last month as an investment property. He identified a number of safety issues that we are correcting before we advertise the house for rental. He was very thorough - he even wriggled through the cramped crawlspace to find the municipal water shutoff valve. We highly recommend George and would use him again.

Pre listing inspection

George recently did a pre listing inspection for us. We had heard that if we had the house pre inspected it would reduce our liability for any future issues and attract more offers. Boy were we right. We had over 20 offers with several asking to see the inspection report. We were able to address some of the issues prior to listing and provide proof of professional repairs. I would recommend George and this type of inspection to anyone.

Hi Maggie,

Thanks so much for your very positive review! Unfortunately so many buyers are unable to get home inspections with this crazy market. So doing what you did sure does help! I'm glad that you had such great success with our pre listing inspection report.

Repair to crack in basement wall

Last year I had water coming into my basement and didn't know where it was coming from. My floorboards were all wet in a certain area, so I knew it was probably coming from one side of the basement, but didn't know which wall. After looking around I was told that a home inspection company should have the tools to help pinpoint the source of the crack. This would then make it easier to get the problem fixed. George from Home Sweet Home Inspections came to check the problem and was quickly able to identify two areas as the entry source for the water. George took out a small piece of the drywall and indicated that by pinpointing the source this way, that we would keep the drywall damage to a minimum. Possibly a small portion of a wall as opposed to multiple walls. George was very professional and was even able to refer a company that came in and repaired the cracks for a very reasonable price.

Hi Mary,

Thanks so much for your positive review. I'm glad I was able to locate your source of moisture intrusion with our moisture meter and thermal imaging camera. It's nice to know that you were able to get the cracks repaired as well.
I hope this is the end of water intrusion for you and your tenant!

George was Amazing!

Great inspection for our walkthrough of our first home purchase! George took his time, explained everything he was looking for and provided an easy to understand list of projects for us to maintain and improve our house in the coming months/years.

Would recommend to anyone!

Thank you so much for sharing your positive feedback. I realize that this is a crazy market and you were unable to get yourself a full inspection. I'm glad you reached out and at least got yourself the one hour walkthrough inspection for some peace of mind. It was a pleasure working with you and your family.

Best regards and happy holidays,

Full house inspection

We got connected with George through Homestars for our newly purchased house in Hespeler, Cambridge. We bought our detached house built in mid 80's without pre-inspection. We were worried about the condition of the house as a first time buyer of an old house. George was quick to respond and set the inspection on closing day. He was very detail; basement, roof, garage, shade, attic, water, furnace, electric- everything you name it. After his inspection for more than 2 hours, George took us walk through the whole house and pointed out his observation. He provides a detail inspection report with pictures. We are very pleased with George's inspection and highly recommend his service.

Highly recommend!

I hired George to do a home inspection on my first home. He was very professional and helpful. Not only did he point out things that need fixing, he went above and beyond with recommendations of how to fix them, even sending me pictures of a relevant product he saw in a store. He also took the time to show me things I would have had trouble finding myself such as the water shutoff and how to adjust the temperature on the hot water tank. Thank you for your help and valuable tips!
