EXCELLENT SERVICE AND THOROUGH INSPECTION

He walked us through his report, highlighting those issues that were most important to address...The few major issues he discovered with the house, we were able to resolve with the sellers and negotiate off the asking price. In addition, the report he provided us was highly organized and extremely user-friendly. In comparison with inspections I have had past experiences with, Michael supersedes.

THOROUGH AND INFORMATIVE

As a second time home buyer, we used Michael from Lighthouse to do both our inspections. He was on time, very thorough and patient in answering all our questions. He also made honest recommendations through out the process. We used him twice and we would not hesitate to use him again and the price was reasonable as well.

UNBELIEVABLE AND EXCEPTIONAL SERVICE

I truly have never experienced ANY service like what my husband and I received during our time with Lighthouse Inspections. Lighthouse is beyond thorough and genuine...and went above and beyond both our expectations, made us both feel comfortable and made sure we understood his findings and recommendations. I would recommend Lighthouse to ANY homeowner for his quality service. Thank you again, Lighthouse, for relieving our worries about purchasing a new home!

GREAT REPORT

We had such a great experience with Tim. He was able to work around our schedule to get into the house to do the inspection. The inspection report was detailed and easy to read. He even gave us recommendations on how to help keep up the condition of the house. Thank you, Tim!!

DELIVERED ON ALL CLAIMS

Ernie inspected my daughter’s condo last night and we were so impressed by him. He is as nice in person as he is on the phone, completely knowledgeable and professional. You will know within minutes of his arrival that you are in good hands. During the months of researching homes and dealing with many different individuals, some great and some...not so much, it was a very welcome relief to know that this critical part of buying a home, the inspection, was being conducted by someone who knew his job and delivered on all of the claims on his website.

Michael Tita was not only friendly, but extremely knowledgeable and conducted a thorough inspection of the house from top to bottom! At the conclusion of the inspection, Michael walked us through his very detailed report, and highlighted any current or potential issues that may arise down the road. Thank you Michael for helping to make our first real estate transaction a positive experience!

FIRST HOME INSPECTION

Our first home and first experience with a Home Inspector and we have no regrets choosing Lighthouse Inspections. Lighthouse was very professional, detail-oriented and friendly. The inspector shared knowledge and explained every detail to my husband and I about what he was doing. He made us aware of current and potential issues within the home which was very helpful in making out decision. He documented it all into a binder at the end of the day which we got to keep. Strongly recommended. Will definitely use you again in the future! Thank you Lighthouse!

TOTAL INSPECTION OF HOUSE

The inspector was a delight to work with. Very professional - very knowledgeable and extremely detail oriented - took his time to explain every little detail to me and gave me examples of what could happen if not fixed. Thanks to the inspector's thorough work - we discovered a leak in the ensuite shower - which we asked the seller to fix before the closing date. The inspectors at Lighthouse know their job inside out - and take the extra step to explain to a non-technical person such as myself - in very simple terms.

VERY THOROUGH AND INFORMATIVE

I was very pleased with the inspection performed by Tim Palmer recently on my new house. He was very thorough, and informative. He took the time to answer all my questions, and provided me with invaluable information on taking care of my new house going forward. I found Tim based on the positive reviews online, and I was not disappointed! I will use Tim again in future, should I ever decide to put myself through the torture of moving again!

WORTH YOUR WEIGHT IN GOLD

I have bought and sold 6 houses in the past 20 years and I can honestly say that our inspector carried out the most in depth and thorough inspection I have ever witnessed. He is very patient, calm and extremely knowledgeable and I felt that he left no stone unturned...I will be recommending you to all my friends and colleagues. YOU ARE WORTH YOUR WEIGHT IN GOLD.

Couldn’t Have Asked for a Better Home Inspection

As first time home buyers, we were a little anxious about our inspection - especially since we were buying a century home. Lighthouse put us at ease. The Inspector was very professional, explained everything to us at a level where we could understand and was very through. Lighthouse has a lot of experience with older homes, and gave us many tips and tricks to maintaining the home. ...The inspector gave us his number and email and told us to let him know if we had any questions after he left. We did and he got back to us immediately and was just as nice and informative...

Will Keep Using Lighthouse

I have used your services twice in the past three years, with two homes I have purchased. The Inspectors were different workers each time. And now I am calling them today for a third time! I truly appreciate how thorough they were in regards to going through the homes, more so I was a first time home buyer in '09 and the Inspector took his time in going through the Binder with me afterwards...I thank you for being so patient with all my questions and for accommodating my schedule both times I called on you-- on such short notice.

Fantastic Inspection

Our home inspector with Lighthouse was simply fantastic. He discovered vermiculite insulation that another inspector missed and saved us from having to spend thousands to have it removed. He spotted foundation issues that another inspector had missed too. All in all he saved us from at least $10,000.00 in repairs....Recommend him to anyone looking to purchase a home who wants real peace of mind before they sign the deal.

Very Pleased with Tim Palmer’s Home Inspection

My wife and I used Tim for a recent home inspection and we were very pleased with his performance. Not only was he friendly and knowledgeable, but his use of the infrared scan was very comforting to us as we could see details of the house not available to the naked eye. He also sat down with us and went page-by-page through the report to make sure we understood everything that he had discovered.

Would Recommend Lighthouse Ten Times Over

Our inspector was very patient an knowledgeable. The inspection took about 2.5 hours. He encouraged us to ask questions and answered every question we had honestly. A few days later when we had more questions he was happy to answer those as well. We would recommend Lighthouse Home Inspections ten times over. Thank you for such great service!

They put my mind at ease

Gene was recommended to me by real estate agent Ameil Gill. I'm a first time home buyer and to be honest I know nothing about owning a home. Gene was thorough, patient and extremely informative. He took me through the entire home, answered all my questions and gave me some amazing pointers. I have actually recommended Lighthouse inspections to my co-worker and she was very pleased with their service.
