CARSON DUNLOP —
THE MOST TRUSTED NAME IN HOME INSPECTION

We put a conditional offer on a house and needed to have an inspection completed within 5 business days. We called up Carson Dunlop based on our real estate agents advice, and found that booking an appointment was super easy and quick. They sent through the terms and conditions and receipt within minutes of my first phone call.We had Sheila as our inspector, and she was prompt, and very friendly. She also was very thorough and despite COVID-19, did a quick walk-through the house with us, to identify any issues/ concerns/ and possible maintenance required in the future. She also flagged possible future concerns and offered that we could call her up when we move in if we have any further questions / concerns. Overall, we are very happy with our experience with Carson Dunlop and would happily recommend them to family and friends.

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!

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."

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.

My only opinion of Carson Dunlop is formed based on our interactions with their Home Inspector, Sheila Corman. She was on-time, prepared and professional. She very happily allowed us to walk around and throughout our home with her while she explained what she observed. She was also really gracious about answering about a hundred of our questions. She was careful with all of her caveats, but explained the different possibilities and outcomes for everything. She was fantastic! If all of Carson Dunlop's Home Inspectors are comparable to Sheila then I couldn't imagine a better home inspection company to work with.

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.

The report was very informative. The fact that it was all through email made it extremely easy. Wish I could of been there to view it personally. The encyclopedia is definitely worth the look for regular maintenance and a more in depth understanding of the basic home aspects.

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.

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!

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
