Home Inspection

Stephen was very thorough and explained every to us along the way. He included us in every step of the inspection. The final report was well organized, extremely detailed and had photographs for each entry.

Stephen was very accommodating and charged a very fair and reasonably priced rate. He was a pleasure to work with and I will definitely be recommending him to all friends and family looking for an honest and qualified home inspector.

This was a Burnaby Townhouse inspection of an older 70's building, the clients were on hand the entire inspection, so as i was able to point out area's of concern, the fully detailed report was delivered the next day.

Home inspection

It was a pleasure having Stephen of Hands on Home Inspections conduct an inspection on a house I was considering purchasing.
He was direct, down to earth, open to questions and very informative.I accompanied him on the inspection, as he recommends, and I learnt a lot as well as enjoying myself! His prompt written report detailed all the things that needed to be done, their urgency and ball park cost.
I cannot recommend him more highly.

Vancouver Kits area home inspection. My client did indeed accompany me on the inspection, and together we went through the home from top to bottom. The pleasure was all mine.

House inspection for a prospective purchase

Stephen Burke provided us with a comprehensive report that assisted us in our decision on whether or not to purchase a property. More importantly to me, He was welcoming to me to be at the site while he did the inspection. This provided additional insight that helped us make a good choice concerning our options. Thanks Stephen.

This inspection required a little more effort than most, the home had two additions and a large attached deck area, i like my clients to be able to see what i'm doing, where i'm looking, most clients enjoy assisting during the inspection.

Garden Bay Home Inspection

We are in the process of buying our fifth house. We have hired three previous home inspectors (one inspector twice). This was our first time working with Steve. He exceeded our expectations in a big way! The house we are buying in located on the Sunshine Coast and Steve needed to commute via the ferry. He was punctual. Steve made it to ferry line-up in Horseshoe Bay before us. During the inspection, Steve was thorough. He was methodical and he did not rush. He took photographs of each issue. He was also pleased to have us accompany him and he was candid, honest, yet respectful. The house we are buying has a fast closing date but Steve was able to complete this inspection on very short notice and on his day off! Early the following morning, Steve emailed us his completed 28-page report replete with photographs of each issue. I can’t image how another home inspector could improve upon what Steve delivered. He was personal, communicative, and courteous to us as the buyers and to the sellers who were also present during the inspection. It is so clear that Steve is in the right career! He is skilled, experienced, and friendly. This is a no-brainer review: 10/10!!

North Vancouver Town home Inspection

Stephen reviewed 3 units and was very clear in his explanations. He also answered any questions we had and sent our report back to us very quickly.

This exterior inspection was a result of an earlier inspection on one of the tow homes, the other two owners asked me to have a look at all three together and put a report together for them. I also supplied them with a reputable carpenter's name and number.

More about Hands On Home Inspections Ltd.

When you’re planning to purchase a home or an investment property, you’ll need to decide who to have your home inspected by. Your real estate agent will probably show you a list of possible home inspectors, but who you choose is up to you – and it’s a very important choice.

I am:
Registered member of CAHPI (Canadian Association of Home and Property Inspectors)
WETT Certified to inspect wood burning installations
approved by Consumer Protection BC (License #47457)
member of BBB in good standing
I take the time to make sure you get all the information you need to make your home purchase with confidence. I work for you, the buyer, not the seller, not the real estate agent, to make sure the house you are buying is going to be there for the long term. Many homes look good on the outside but have serious problems on the inside that can cause you or your family harm or depreciate the value of your home.

I can also help you when you plan to sell your home, to make sure it is ready for selling and that there will be no unpleasant surprises when the buyer’s home inspection is carried out.

I believe in taking care of my clients, the people who trust me to go in and check the house for them. A home is one of the biggest purchases we ever make, and having a thorough inspection done on your potential home is the first step in making that decision. Your report comes complete with pictures of your house that are vital to the decision you make when purchasing your home. I work for you whether you are the buyer or the seller: I check over every inch of your home so that no crack in the foundation or weak spots in the structure are missed.
