CARSON DUNLOP —
THE MOST TRUSTED NAME IN 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.

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!

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.

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!

Our inspector from Carson Dunlop was Walter Collodel. He was prompt and prepared during the house inspection. He was very detailed and very clear when providing answers to my questions. We are very happy of the service we got from Walter and Carson Dunlop. Thank you.

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.

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."

Very professional, complete, detailed ... and friendly too! Despite the difficulty in finding the time to do work (before presenting our offer on the house), they went the extra mile and squeezed us in. Everyone was friendly - including the staff - and the final report was very well documented/explained. Great job!

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.
