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!

We are so glad we took our agents suggestion to have Gordon Mathieu do our inspection on our less then perfect house before we listed. Our agent told us that he is the only inspector she would use when listing a house. Gordon knew exactly what to included about our home and what he did not have to include in the report. It made selling the house easy and we got over asking. We purchased a home which also has an inspection completed by a different inspector at Carson and Dunlop - it was tougher and more detailed on the home and outlined issues for us to address with the seller.

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!

My buyer clients made an offer on the property that was conditional on a home inspection of the new build property. The new-build inspector from Carson Dunlop carried out an inspection of the house, some minor issues were noted and the sellers were able to resolve them. This process led my buyers to feel confident in waiving the inspection condition and purchasing their dream home. Very happy clients and agent. Thank you.

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."

I've done a lot of work with Gordon Mathieu and I've always had very good service. He's professional, very knowledgeable and he explains everything clearly to my clients, he puts them at ease. By the time the inspection is done, my clients feel they understand the property they are about to buy. That's very important to me. The rest like the call back on the appliances, the waste pipe inspection are very nice to have too.

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.

First of all Josh Natovitch is an amazing guy. He took the time to explain everything on site. He was very knowledgeable, and was open to me asking questions. On top of this he gave advice and tips that were beyond the requirements. Because of Josh, I learned more about home maintenance than I had in years, and allowed me to feel comfortable closing on the house. If I ever can get asked by someone for a home inspector I WILL be recommending Josh specifically. From what I have heard, inspectors can vary in "quality". Carson Dunlop... Josh should be treated like gold. He blew us away. As for the service in general. The appointment was booked and attended almost within 24 hours, and the report within 8 hours of finishing the inspection. The quality of the report was above expectations.You guys do a great job.Thank you Carson Dunlop, and specifically Josh.

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.

The home inspectors was very friendly, professional and patiently explained everything he saw in great detail. Not only did he share us his thoughts on safety or other concerns but ways to correct them as well as weighted importance as to when and what needed to be fixed first. Definitely the best money spent on a home inspection. I would definitely recommend and use Carson Dunlop again.

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.

My agent booked the service online. Inspector arrived at the premise on time. Inspection was carried out very professionally. The report provided is easy to navigate. There’s a free recall report which gives me additional peace of mind. I’d definitely recommend Carlson Dunlop to anyone who needs a home inspection.

Pre-purchase inspection. Also, he found @$300 in deficiencies which we had seller remove from purchase price so the the report cost was cut by %50.

I have used Carson Dunlop many, many times over the years both with my Buyer Clients and my Seller Clients. They provide predictably good quality, professional Inspections and thorough Reports. As well, they are always willing to discuss their Report not only with the Client, but also others interested in the property when I have had a pre-Listing Inspection. Their name is synonymous with quality & reliability. When you have a Carson Dunlop Inspection, then you have peace of mind.

I used them to inspect a home I was buying. The inspection was done by a gentleman name Jim Gibson. He was great! Super knowledgeable, took his time and checked out the home. I loved that he didn't rush and went above and beyond with explanation. Hard to find service like this nowadays IMO. If you don't want to stress or second guess your choice I would go with Carson Dunlop

Engineer Gordon Mathieu, with Carson Dunlop, recently inspected a house we had put an offer on. Gordon was extremely professional. He did not rush through the inspection or his verbal explanations of the intricate electrical, plumbing and heating systems. Gordon has years of experience and it shows in the quality of his work and his great communication skills. It was a pleasure working with him.

Being able to call a single inspector to come view not only a rural home but also test the septic system and well made a huge difference in our timeline to purchase our new home. I am impressed not only with the attention to detail in the final report, but also the time our inspector took to explain and highlight things about the home throughout the inspection. I highly recommend Carson Dunlop for real estate inspections.

Josh was an absolute pleasure to work with. We loved his approach and attention to detail. Josh recognized we were first-time home buyers and took the time to explain everything to us. He helped navigate areas that we need to look into further while answering all the questions we had. I would definitely recommend Josh and Carson Dunlap.

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.
