Assisted Review

An assisted review is collected by a contractor on behalf of the homeowner after their work is completed. The homeowner must confirm the text of the review and may make any changes she or he deems appropriate. The homeowner then assigns the contractor a review score out of 10. Assisted reviews receive the same scrutiny as other reviews and must follow our review guidelines.

After researching home inspection companies on HomeStars, and reading such positive reviews about Clearview Home Inspections, I know I wanted to give Clearview a call about my pre-sale/pre-listing home inspection. Tom took my call immediately, gave me different inspection options and the costs for the various services right over the phone, and once I decided, he fit me into his very busy weekend schedule. He arrived on a Sunday afternoon for the home inspection, when I only contacted him on that Saturday evening, the night before! He arrived on time as promised, was patient and respectful throughout, as I had a number of inspection-related questions about prepping my house for sale. He didn't even seem to mind us following him around, watching & accompanying him as he thoroughly checked out the interior and exterior of my main property, but also my detached garage. Not only did he do the pre-listing home inspection, but he also did the Infrared (IR) Home Scan. I was very impressed at how thorough Tom was and how easy it was to understand the main items he noted in my 58 page inspection report. It included lots of helpful explanations of the issues, with photos of my property items to repair along with sample images & instructions for correcting the problems. I am currently working my way through his recommendations, as I am renovating/updating a 60 year old bungalow, but I found his advice and feedback meaningful and helpful so that I could confidently repair, list and sell my property. When a home buyer sends in their home inspector as a condition of sale, I will know that I have already attended to the issues. Tom, thanks again for your timely responsiveness to not just attending to my property for the inspection, but for providing such a thorough report so quickly. On my next home purchase, I already know who to call before I sign a deal. As a regular user of companies listed and reviewed on HomeStars, I was very pleased with Tom's service and would happily recommend ClearView Home Inspections.

Dan, thank you so much for coming right over to help secure my wood fence that was damaged after the strong winds we had in Toronto this weekend. It was an urgent repair, as it was ready to fall into our small parking lot, and I needed it fixed before cars were parked there again, as I didnt want the fence to fall and damage anyone's vehicles. I called you for the first time this Sunday at 12:45pm,and you were at my house at 2pm as promised, just 75 minutes after receiving my call. I couldn't believe it. Thanks for helping me, instead of doing your own property repairs that you had planned for the afternoon. You not only fixed the fence as best as possible on this cold winter day (until the ground thaws this Spring and we can replace the fence posts), but you also re-secured some eavestroughing that was blown loose. On top of all that, you even helped my neighbour rescue a pigeon that flew into his property accidentally by carrying the bird out of his office with your hands and placing him safely in a box for us to release him back to his awaiting flock. I hope to work with you again. Reasonable rates, willing to fix a small but very urgent job (on a long-weekend), reliable, friendly & helpful. I will try my best to book you in advance next time. Thanks again. Cheers, Evelyn in North York.
