"It is not your customer's job to remember you, it is your obligation and responsibility to make sure they don't have the chance to forget you."

- Patricia Fripp


I loved the professionalism and friendliness of John. Frank and experienced with great advice for future repairs.

John has a great demeanour. He was very willing to share his knowledge and was inviting of all and any questions.

Can not describe, But in single word Amazing

I have always had home inspections done as part of the buying process. I found John's inspection to be very thorough, and one of the better house inspections that I have had. The inspection report was top notch.

Highly professional

Timely response. Knowledgeable and thorough. Walked me through how things worked and what I will need to do for future maintenance. I've used John for three inspections and each time I had the inspection report within 2 hours of his leaving property. Highly recommended.

It was great I did the home inspection. They found that the furnace was not working. I was able to negotiate with the owners before buying the house to get a new one.

John was extremely friendly, knowledgeable, and professional. He made our inspection a wonderful opportunity for learning about our home, and let us feel very involved in the process. He answered every question we had a great experience.

"This was the most professional and efficient home inspection. Receiving the inspection report while we sat with John was just so great. There are so many steps to buying a home and as we were selling a home at the same time not having to wait for the inspection report was priceless. The inspection report was very thorough and left us feeling very prepared to buy an 80 year old house."

"I want to commend John Daigneault - who acted as my first-time home buyer home inspector. She recently put an offer on her first home, and along with it came the anxieties one feels with making such an investment. In the sometimes stressful process of buying a new home, John's services came as a breath of fresh air for both my client and I. John lead her through the home inspection with much attention to detail and careful scrutiny; it was as if he was the one buying the house. Both myself and my client were especially impressed with his professionalism, sense of humour, pleasant demeanor and excellent work. As the real estate agent I accompanied my client during the inspection and was very impressed with his work.  When making a decision such as purchasing your fist home, it was very comforting to have a professional such as John helping my client make the right choice."

"I appreciated the explanations about heating systems and others. I like the layout of the report. It's clear and helps me pinpoint what improvements I must make on the house, even small details. I also want to mention that this inspector was eager to answer any questions, even after the inspection. The emails were very promptly answered, and this is something I appreciate. He also gave me extensive written information on renovation costs, if I needed them.."

"I needed a pre-listing inspection... John was very reassuring and thorough... I very much appreciated that he took the time to answer all my questions and to explain to me what he was doing and looking for more specifically... I am proceeding with a feeling of relief that a potential buyer can rest assured that this home is indeed worthy of buying and on the flip side, I have the assurance of being able to negotiate more wisely when the time comes to consider an offer"

"Very thorough inspection. A definite learning experience as we accompanied the inspector. Many shortcomings of the residence were identified by John, many of which we never acknowledged from our first walk-through."

"John was kind and polite, and very patient with my silly first time buyer questions.  He was thorough with his inspection and gave lots of great tips to improve efficiency in my house, along with suggestions on where to find things, and estimated costs.  He also assured me that while these were suggestions, they were in no way required, and things could maintain as they were with no negative impact.  He gave advise in a way that I could relate back to myself.."

"I always appreciate the prompt service I get when I call on you for an inspection. I get positive feedback from my purchasers about the way you treat them. I appreciate your assistance in helping them feel confident and at ease they are making a good decision....and if the house does have problems, then so be it...I'd rather they know it now and I'll find them a BETTER ONE!!"
