Steven was super efficient, knowledgeable and great to work with. Showed up early took his time and... carefully explained every detail to me as I had numerous questions. TO ADD to that after the report I had clarifying questions and he was never to busy to walk me thru the detail and explain the WHY to me. In this day and age when you pay for a service and its considered complete after money is exchanged it was so pleasant and refreshing to have Steven stand behind and in FRONT of his work to follow it thru. I would recommend him 110% and that is no small feat coming from me and my standards. Keep it up Steven integrity and hard work are a dying breed. Sincerely, Teresaread more

Very very thorough. Gets the report back to you very quickly. We paid for it. So apparently you... own it . It's yours. Thats what he told me on the phone unless u want to share it. I said no we dont want to share it. It was a verbal. I didn't email it to him so he gave a copy to the realtor who basically can share that with other buyers, so how are we suppose to know that. There is no way of knowing that.read more

Purchasing a home can be very stressful. You never know what you may come across. Steven made us... feel at ease with his professionalism and home inspection knowledge. He was transparent and honest about his findings. My husband and I were not able to be there during the inspection and Steven accommodated us. He conducted a zoom meeting between my Husband and I and went through his findings. He was very kind and spent time answering our questions. Steven provided a full report with a legend, photos and notes detailing his findings and also suggestion on how to replace or repair. Made this experience smooth and provided us with the confidence of our new purchase. Steven is a genuine person. Would highly recommend him to others. Thank you Stevenread more

Having Steve do a complete inspection of our home that we have owned for 27 years if the best... investment we have ever put towards are home. Steve was very professional, he sure knows his line of business and is easy to talk to. Something we needed as we are going to do some major renovations and we know what we would like to do, but he was abe to explain that some damage has been caused by a slow amount of water going behind walls, something we would never know and the mould needs to be removed before doing any work down there. He is open to all questions which is comforting and never judges you. I would never buy a home without an inspection such as Steve provided us with. It is good to have an outside party look at your home with open eyes, and experience. You simply can not go wrong and we both highly recommend Steve as your inspector. We are so glad we did so, it has been a big help to us to do the repairs in the correct order. Thank you Steve. Carol and Gordread more

Additionally, he thoughtfully assessed the lot and provided valuable insights on its various aspects. Steven's attention to detail was truly impressive; he pointed out all areas of concern and ranked their importance, which helped us prioritize any potential repairs.What made our experience even more enjoyable was Steven's keen eye for functionality. He suggested some minor changes that would make the house even more practical and comfortable for our family, which was an unexpected but delightful bonus.Throughout the inspection, Steven remained patient and informative, encouraging us to ask questions and providing clear and understandable answers. He genuinely cared about our understanding of the property's condition and made sure we were well-informed every step of the way.With the comprehensive report Steven provided us, we felt confident in removing the inspection condition from our offer to purchase.

Residential & Commercial Inspection Services

Pre-Purchase, Pre-Listing Single, Multi-Family & Commercial Properties

Walker Inspections will conduct an extensive, non-destructive review of all building and property systems. All accessible spaces are inspected, from walking on the roof, to crawling in the attic and getting into the crawl space. All structural components as well as foundational stability is closely inspected and reported, including windows, doors, walls and floors. Major internal systems including electrical systems, panels and sub-panels, wiring and fixtures, heating and cooling systems and plumbing are tested and examined. Exterior landscaping is even reviewed to ensure water runoff is correct and awareness of potential concerns with the surrounding grounds are noted. Minor flaws, opportunities for improvements and items that require normal maintenance is included for your awareness.

When the property is a multi-family or business property such as a duplex, triplex, apartment or office building, each home or business is individually reported so you know exactly where any deficiencies can be found. Estimate your inspection and book it now using our online tool.

Pre-Listing

Sellers can identify and address issues beforehand, prioritizing repairs, building trust with potential buyers, maximizing marketability and reducing the likelihood of surprises that may arising during the buyer’s inspection.

Pre-Purchase

A comprehensive assessment of the property’s condition, identifying potential issues and ensuring transparency in the real estate transaction. An essential step that offers peace of mind to the purchaser.

Post-Purchase

If you’ve already purchased your home or business but did not have the opportunity for a quality inspection, now is a good time. Maintenance and repairs are usually much less costly when discovered before things go wrong.
