Thank you for your great and informative home inspection. Lee David couldn't have been more helpful during the whole inspection and gave us the piece of mind to proceed with the purchase. Thank you very much Lee David and the Carson Dunlop Team!

Josh was so patient and informative. He knew we were first time home buyers and really explained everything to us. From what the problem was, how it should be fixed and how immediate or minor the issue was. He spent over 3 hours with us going from bottom to top of the house. He was very thorough and detailed. We learnt so much from him. His expertise helped us make an informative decision about buying this house. We would definitely use Josh again for another home inspection. Worth every penny!

Great service! Was referred to us by our agent.I really commend one of your inspectors Hal Woolley for doing the inspection of our new home. He was very informative and knowledgeable. He had great attention to detail. He walked us through step by step on things we should monitor, the do's and dont's in the household even though he was busy inspecting our house at the same time. It felt like a learning curve for us especially I do not know much about what to look for within a home. He made sure to address critical issues in our next home and provided us professional solutions and recommendations. He readily answered our questions as well and made us involve with the entire inspection process. Definitely outstanding service and love love the household bible book that he gave me as it provided me more information on how to maintain and take care of our home. Very detailed inspection report! plus plus 10 for great service! More than what we expected ! highly recommended!

I've had the pleasure of the assistance from Carson Dunlop, twice before. Recently, in the throws of a bidding war, my real-estate agent suggested we wave an inspection in order to have a better chance at the bid. I told him "no, we may need to find another place, because I won't go ahead without Carson Dunlop going through it first."

Greg Kendall completed our home inspection, and I would highly recommend him to anyone purchasing a home/in need of a home inspection. Greg completed his inspection in a very thorough manner, while also taking time to answer any questions we had, or provide us with advice and suggestions for certain issues. Greg was polite and respectful the entire time, and is very knowledgeable.

We had our buyer's inspection done by Scott Thompson and had a great experience. He was informative and thorough, and took the time to explain to us what he saw, potential implications and ongoing maintenance items we should consider. He was also transparent of limitations/what he can't see during a non-invasive inspection which was appreciated. Overall very professional and caring. We initially had some concerns as heard that the larger inspection companies were 'in bed' with agents, but Scott was fair and balanced. Would highly recommend!

Ms.Shiela Corman was our inspector today. She was having a good knowledge on every question we asked and she explained the issues and gave us suggestions on how to deal with it. She did a good job. I felt the cost for the inspection was little high. Other wise everything was good.

Hal was great - he was thorough and provided simple direct assessment, without dumbing down information or being patronizing. He was friendly and honest. Also the process itself, from booking to follow-up, was simple and helpful. Adding the homeowner's guide or book with general information about houses was also very helpful.

Both my home and business properties were inspected by Carson Dunlop. The inspection reports were very thorough yet easy to read. CD also provided me with a historical review of my commercial property and neighbourhood; information I would have never thought to search for on my own.The Inspector reviewed the issues (and we had some) and discussed my options for repair and cost. This helped me to renegotiate the purchase price with the seller. Six years after purchase, a leak developed in my basement on the adjoining side with my neighbour. I reached out to Carson Dunlop and at no extra charge, they helped determine the problem was associated with my neighbour’s property. Their recommendations saved me time and money making them truly a partner I can rely on time and time again.I strongly recommend them to anyone looking for a home inspection.

We had our home inspection done by Hal, and it was an absolute pleasure! As first time buyers, it can be an overwhelming experience; Hal took his time to explain in full detail what he was looking for, what we should/shouldn't worry about. Overall, his inspection was very thorough and no-no sense.He was extremely professional and friendly; our family felt really comfortable, knowing that we had a pro like him do the job.Definitely recommended; would do business with them again in the future!Extremely recommended!

I have had nothing but the greatest experiences with Carson Dunlop over the past 30+ years and many, many inspections. They are extremely knowledgeable and conscientious.On those rare occasions when there was a problem, usually due to the inspectors not having X-ray vision or outside the scope of the inspection they were very quick to offer a solution even years later.I will never have anyone but Carson Dunlop do an inspection for me.

I have dealt with Carson Dunlop on many occasions over the past 25 years. They have always been consummate professionals. I have recommended them to family members, friends and business associates and have never received anything but thanks and positive comments. There is a good reason why they have endured and flourished in a challenging industry.

Very thorough, friendly, helpful and professional. Greg happily answered all of our questions as he took us through the house, and clearly explained to us the work needed and potential costs associated with every aspect of the home. If you need an inspection, especially if you don’t know much about home-ownership, this is who to call, no question.

Hal was very informative and thorough. He explained everything in a down to earth way so I could understand what he was talking about. He didn't try to upsell things and just stated facts like "this may need to be upgraded but it works right noe so there's no rush". Also, the home encyclopedia that came with the report was well worth the extra cost for Carson Dunlop

He made us feel comfortable and was extremely knowledgeable. The report we received was very detailed and the additional benefits (recall notifications, Home Care plan etc.) are excellent. Would recommend this company to my family and friends. Thanks again Josh!

I have been using Carson & Dunlop for 27 years for my clients' inspections. They do an excellent job, and have been very truthful about structural concerns. I had one of my clients walk away from a house which had major structural damage from a poorly constructed addition. I would never have been able to see this on my own. All their inspectors are engineers, yet are gentle with clients who are purchasing older homes which might have specific issues. As they state up front to the clients, they can't see behind walls - they can only inspect what's available but they do give a great overall picture of a property.
