Cottage Inspection

Steve provided a comprehensive inspection of a cottage that we eventually bought up on Indian Arm. He was willing to travel by boat to do the work and encouraged me to accompany him on the inspection. The report turned up some serious deficiencies which helped us renegotiate the price. Also Steve is a WETT Inspector. Our insurance company required that the wood burning stove be WETT certified. Prompt service, helpful report.

Home Inspection

We needed someone very quick and last minute to do a home inspection for us. My husband found Stephen Burke online, emailed him, and promptly got a reply that Steven could come over. We have only positive things to say about Steven and his inspection — he was extremely professional, organized and user friendly (no technical jargon). He gave us an incredible report, that’s basically worth its weight in gold, and all for a fair price. We highly recommend him!

Jan & Bed were great clients, by the time we were finished the inspection, they had made their decision to purchase the property.

house inspection

Stephen was referred to me by a panel of department space. I thought he was very professional and thorough. When I confirmed the appointment with him he made himself available and ready for the date I needed. During the inspection he pointed out a lot of things to me that he thought I should know about. And, on the whole, I was very happy with his services. The price was just right and I had no complaints at all. I’d highly recommend Stephen.

Home inspection

I was pretty happy with Stephen and his review. His report format was good and he was very detailed. The one issue that I came across was that I actually had to follow up with him in regards to the attic of the home which he didn’t get a chance to pop his head into for the inspection. So he did follow up on that without any extra charge, but I wish he had given the tenants a little more warning in advance that he was coming because the closet in the attic was very dirty and they didn’t have any time to clean. Overall, I thought Stephen was very good and I was glad he addressed the one issue without any hassle or additional cost.

Another great inspection, sellers need to be aware of the fact that home inspectors need access to all area's of the home.

home inspection

Stephen did our home inspection for us and he was very professional. The process he went through was very thorough. He seemed to follow a step-by-step format for the inspection and he gave us detailed information about the home as well as advice that would be useful to us when we moved in. He answered all our questions and explained everything in a simple and professional manner. Since we’ve moved into the house we haven’t had any unforeseen problems arise so we think Stephen did a fantastic job.

I like to walk my clients through the inspection procedure, so they understand all the systems and can ask all their questions.

home inspection

I found Stephen Burke just through word of mouth. He did a good job with the inspect and he’s pretty thorough with it all. As far as the cost goes, he’s not overpriced and I was happy with the way everything went overall. I’d highly recommend him.

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.
