Home inspection

Arranging for the survey was very easy and Chris was very prompt in providing the service within couple of days. The report was clear, well written with good photo documentation. Pricing was reasonable.

Great Service

Chris was a great help for us as the first time home buyers. I connected with Chris and asked for help with a short notice. During the busy time of pandemic, he kindly accommodated our request in his busy schedule and helped us with the inspection before our subject removal date. he did a great job for inspection and provided us with a timely inspection report. Without his help, we probably wouldnt have been able to make our mind about our purchase. highly recommended.

Home Inspection

Having needed a home inspection for the purchase of our first fully detached house, we contacted Chris on the recommendation of a friend. Purchasing an older character home can be a bit nerve-racking given the possibilites of issues that could be hidden. Chris did an amazing job finding and presenting every detail that we needed to know, first together at the house, then again when we were given the complete written report. This allowed us to make educated decisions and ultimately a confident purchase. Chris followed back up with us three months later to see how everything was going. I would highly recommend Chris for any home inspection.

Home inspection

Chris did a great job on our apartment. He was very thorough and the report was really clear and easy to understand. He made some great recommendations on what could be fixed. Super professional. I will be using Chris again for the next inspection and highly recommend his services.

Home Inspection for Condo

I called in Haystack to do a home inspection for the condo I purchased. Chris came to the inspection early. He was well prepared and friendly. He took his time to comb through the entire unit, which I really appreciated. Chris is dedicated to his craft, professional, an excellent communicator and really cares about doing a great job. There is a reason he is one of the very best at what he does. If you need a home Inspector, I highly recommend you call Haystack first!

Extremely professional and thorough

We were extremely happy to have Chris do our home inspection. He was very professional (especially during Covid!) and the report was very well done. We are using this as a checklist for updates we want/need to make in the future. We would highly recommend Chris to anyone purchasing a property.

Quick, thorough and fair price

I needed a quick condo inspection for purchase. Chris was available next day and did a thorough inspection and gave us a written report within 24 hrs. He pointed out things I had not thought of. I felt confident making an offer based on his report. He also did an inspection on our son's condo and all the things he flagged were borne out. Chris is very pleasant and easy to deal with.

Home inspections

From DK. Chris and Haystack home inspections did two inspections for me. They were both thorough and exhaustive, and in one case caught significant but not obvious issues that led us to not purchase that home. In the second case a leak was spotted that we had missed that was quickly fixed. We have used the excellent inspection report on the home we have just purchased to fix minor issues that could have had long-term consequences. I highly recommend Haystack, with the cost well worthwhile.
