- C.C., Port Alberni BC, September 2017
John was easy to deal with. He took the time to go through what he found on site with us and also gave us a thorough report. He was very efficient and caught things that weren't caught in a previous inspection. Would use again and recommend for sure!
- N.F., Courtenay BC, September 2017
Very thorough. Pictures are great to visualize areas needing attention. And the ability to summarize the full report is a bonus! Pleased to recommend John as a home inspector.
- D.M., Abbotsford BC, August 2017
Very pleased with the detail and thoroughness of his report. Very easy to understand. John was very professional and helpful and pleasure to deal with during what can be a stressful situation. We would recommend John without hesitation.
- M.D., W. Vancouver BC, July 2017
I am very satisfied with your report, John. I found only one item that you missed! And that was the patched up damage on the outside edge of the shed! I particularly appreciated you sitting down with me and going over the details. I found this very helpful. Thanks. Anne Sharp
- A.S., Qualicum Beach BC, July 2017
We are extremely happy with the inspection service provided by John D'Aigle and will be highly recommending him to others. The scheduling and inspection process was simple, and we found the inspection report to be thorough and comprehensive. It will be a great tool for necessary repairs, and it is full of useful information regarding ongoing upkeep and maintenance. I also like the fact that John will make himself available should we have any questions or require advice about this property in the future.
- D.S., Nanaimo BC, May 2017
We were very impressed from start to finish. The booking process was smooth, and he accommodated us at quite short notice. We were not able to be present for the inspection, so we appreciated the ability to do everything online (sign the agreement, view the full report with pictures and explanations). John then spent an additional 20 minutes on the phone with me, answering all of my questions. He has offered to continue providing follow-up advice as necessary, as we move forward with quotes for the required work. Thanks, John!
- C.B., Calgary AB, May 2017
We really appreciated your flexibility in accommodating our time schedule for arriving at the inspection, John. You made it clear you were working for us and we were entitled to be there during the inspection. We found you relaxed and unhurried. Your inspection was comprehensive and explanations and suggestions thorough and detailed. The photos made it clear and we will definitely be calling as you offered to have further questions answered and get recommmendations for ways to proceed with necessary repairs. Thanks so much.
- J.S., Qualicum Beach BC, April 2017
John did a thorough job, discussed inspection parameters with me prior to the inspection and completed the inspection on a timely basis. Thanx John
- S.T., Regina Sas, April 2017
Our experience with John exceeded our expectations and past experiences with home inspections. Right from the initial appointment set up, firm price quote, appointment reminder to his on time arrival at the property. We're by no means first time home owners but we are first time buyers on Vancouver Island and John did a great job of checking for the weak points properties develop in this climate as well as offering great advice on maintenance issues to keep up with. John is 10/10 in our books.
- R.M., Calgary Al, April 2017
This is the second time we've used John's services. John came promptly and does a very thorough inspection. His reports are excellent with pictures and comments that address any issues. I highly recommend him.
- H.K., Parksville BC, April 2017
John fit us in with short notice and was very thorough in his inspection. I would have no problem recommending him to those who require a home inspection. Report was well documented, pictures attached of each item requiring attention, clear concise, easy to follow. Very pleased.
- D.H., Surrey BC, March 2017
John D'Aigle did a very thorough inspection of the home we are buying. I feel confident after his close scrutiny of our purchase that we are aware of all faults existing or liable to exist in the near future in this house. He also provided good suggestions as to what is involved in preventing further damage and how to repair what problems he found. The report, both oral and written with photos, is very detailed. I would not hesitate to hire John in the future.
- Y.M., Errington BC, February 2017
We are pleased with your report. Also, we will recommend you to others as the opportunity presents itself.
- E.D., Whistler BC, January 2017
Very thorough, professional and just a nice guy :)
- P.M., Courtenay BC, January 2017
The photos to augment the text were invaluable. The little arrows to point directly to the item described in the text made things very clear. The followup conversation was clear and concise, especially when he invited me to contact him for brand names and materials to do necessary repairs. He also described some further services he could perform for me at this site if I couldn't be there myself. All round, very well done.
- L.D., Loveland CO, December 2016
I would hire John for a home inspection again in a heartbeat. He did exactly what was asked of him and more. He was very thorough, detailed oriented and his experience in the field was evident. Job well done!
- K.H., Nanaimo BC, November 2016
Mr. D'Aigle was kind, thorough and efficient. His minute attention to detail enabled us to get a clear picture (so many photos) of exactly what issues were immediate, and things to fix down the line. Thank you!
- H.H., Fort St. James BC, October 2016
I would have been lost without John's expertise and experience. He provided a very detailed report and allowed us to have the asking price of our new home to be reduced to allow for all or most of the recommendations in his report to be completed. 12 out of 10 for sure.
- A.P., Parksville BC, October 2016
John was very thorough. He went about his work quietly and professionally. His experience in the field was very evident.

Thank you John, for the extremely informative and thorough home inspection! It was so much more comprehensive than we expected.

We will recommend your services to anyone we know who is looking for a home inspection. Keep up the good work! Derek Y.
- D.Y., Nanaimo BC, August 2016
Service was fantastic! John explained the process upfront and followed it. He was very thorough and spent a lot of time going over his findings in detail, which was particularly helpful as a first time home buyer/owner.

Very punctual, thorough and complete.
- A.B., Calgary AB, August 2016
We would like to give a big shout out to you John for the home inspection you did for us on Aug. 03, 2016. Your explanation of the various items, that need addressing, were very well received and understood. Your patience with us was thoroughly appreciated, as you explained yourself in terms that we could understand. To have the full report the following morning with photo's was incredible. It gave us peace of mind in making the final decision on purchasing this property. We couldn't be more satisfied with your professionalism

- M.C., Bowser BC, July 2016
Excellent job inspection. I like that John is a straight shooter and tells it like it is. John was thorough and clear about every part of the home. The emailed report with pictures highlighted and confirmed what was said during the walk-through. Having a chance to call John after to ask questions was very much appreciated too. Thank you!
- R.B., July 2016
I appreciated John's willingness to accomodate my need to have an inspection done quickly. He was always professional in our interactions. The use of electronic documents has made it easy for me to review the reports and pictures wherever I am.

Thanks John! Your WETT Inspection was on time, efficiently done, and your suggestions for reasonable ways to complete the repairs were truly helpful. I also sent your excellent photos and descriptions to our roofing company and they agreed to clean the attic debris and bring the chimney clearance back up to code at no charge. And the peace of mind in knowing we'll have a safe wood stove will be worth the fee!
- C.E., Nanaimo BC, April 2016
Appreciated John's honesty and thorough inspection. Will definitely use him again when we need the woodstove we wish to install inspected! Highly recommended!
- L.L., Errington BC, March 2016
Personally, I was very happy with the work you do :)
- J.G., Nanaimo BC, March 2016
John was extremely flexible and accommodated my long distance and somewhat time limited request. The inspection was thorough and provided essentially a maintenance to do list for when we move in. Although we couldn't be there, John was more than willing to discuss the inspection over the phone, answered all our questions and offered follow up consultation if required. John was very professional and provided the contract and report in a very timely manner. Rated 9 as opposed to 10 only because we didn't have the opportunity to meet him. Our failing, not his!
- V.K., Ardrossan Alb, March 2016
John was a very helpful and thorough inspector. He went the extra mile, helping me renew and resubmit my home inspection to my insurance company when they were requiring improvements. He is professional and his knowledge of the housing industry really shines through.

- W.A., Victoria BC, October 2015

A very thorough house inspection, a well-crafted report and he readily identified both positive and negative results. John's mentorship is to be applauded, as he constantly questioned and guided his "trainee" on this occasion.
- B.W., September 2015
John did a great job with his inspection. He was very prompt and punctual which is important to us. John took the time to explain his findings, and also suggested repair items. We would definitely recommend John again to anyone wanting quality. Thank you John
- J.C., August 2015
We were very impressed with the honest opinions and comments about the house we had John inspect. His suggestions as to what should be done to improve certain conditions he discovered will be followed to the letter once we take possession. Our realtor mentioned one of the problems to the current home owners and they had it taken care of immediately. Listening to someone with so much experience in the home construction business is reassuring when you're deciding to spend so much money and we now feel confident in moving forward with this purchase, thanks in a large part to John.

He took the time to go through all of the minor issues he discovered with me at the time of the inspection, and provided a full report which will be very useful to me as I move into my new home.

Hello John, Carole and I were both very impressed with your coverage of the building and manner it was reported. Your report was the most comprehensive I have witnessed. I see no area that needs to be changed. Thank you Lee Goodfellow
- L.G., May 2015
We found John to be a very knowledgeable Building Inspector with the right balance of conveying his findings in Layman's terms so we were left understanding his concerns as well as the good points of the house we are purchasing. Very nice down to earth guy is how we would sum him up! We are very comfortable in knowing we can ask him for any clarification or suggestions after the sale is through. Thanks John Jim and Christine Bergman
