It was a pleasure working with Keith for our first home inspection. He was very thorough and knowledgeable throughout the entire inspection and broke everything down for us.

Keith did a very thorough inspection of my property.

Keith has a very clear manner of presenting his results and I felt that the information I received was complete and accurate. I would recommend Keith anytime one is seeking a home inspection. - Jim Villamere - Sales Representative - Century21
- J.V., July 2017
Keith was terrific. He was incredibly thorough and had a sharp eye for all things, large and small. We learned a lot about our house and the types of things to look for when looking at other homes. We have absolutely no hesitation recommending Keith to others. Thank you Keith!
- D.M., July 2017
Keith you went above & beyond for the inspection. Your help has been greatly appreciated.
- T.O., July 2017
Great job. Thanks for all your help!
- T.O., June 2017
Keith was recommended to us by our realtor, and being first time homebuyers, we wanted to have a home inspection on our new home as a condition. Keith showed up promptly, and he was a very friendly and knowledgeable person, going very thorough on the possible issues there were both now and in the future. The report generated at the end was also thorough and provided good recommendations. We would refer Keith to anyone in the region who would require a home inspection.
- J.L., June 2017
Keith was fantastic. Very thorough.
- A.J., May 2017
Keith was great bringing us through the inspection process. As first time home buyers we were nervous of what to look for. Keith spoke to us throughout our inspection answering any and all questions we had about why he was inspecting certain areas of the home to areas that weren't problematic but we may want to keep an eye on in the future. Keith has allowed for follow up questions even after the inspection was completed which provides us with peace of mind.
- K.M., April 2017
Thanks, Keith, for a pleasant, thorough and informative inspection process. Many of our concerns regarding the property were addressed and we were able to make an informed decision about the purchase. BTW we got the house! We look forward to the opportunity to work with you again, should the need arise. -Chris & Tammy
- T.C., April 2017
We found Keith to be prompt, polite and professional. We appreciated his time to explain everything in detail and therefore there were no surprises in his report. We definitely recommend him.
- T.S., April 2017
He is very patient and responsible. Keith explained the detail to me and answered my questions very well.
- R.H., March 2017
Keith has done two inspections for us and both experiences were top notch. He's not afraid to get his hands dirty and leaves no stone unturned to ensure that he assesses everything. He does a great job of grading the age and condition of the various components of a house, which allows us to make a prudent immediate decision (to buy or not to buy) as well as plan for our future (budget to replace XYZ within 5-years). His report contains a wealth of information and, should we eventually win a bidding war, will be something we keep within arm's reach. In addition to everything above, what we appreciate most is his approach. We ask a lot of questions and his patience is only outdone by the thoroughness of his responses. This means a lot to us as hopefully soon-to-be homeowners and Keith's offer of ongoing consultation is something we will definitely leverage. Thanks for all of your help, Keith!

Keith has been very professional from start to finish of our engagement. He responded to my voice mails and emails in a very timely manner. He was clear in what we should expect, how the inspection will be done, what will be included and what will not be. He recommended good inspectors in areas that were not in his coverage, such as well, WETT, and sceptic inspections. His report was very detailed and easy to understand. He followed up with a phone call and walked me through the report in detail and made sure I understood the contents, implications, and the necessary work that needed to be done to rectify the non-confirming issues. I am very satisfied with his work, his demeanor, and his conduct. I would highly recommend him.
- B.N., January 2017
Keith you were very helpful and I appreciate all your suggestions and recommendations. The blue binder is a great source of info for me, someone who doesn't know much about the workings of a home! Thank You again and will certainly pass your name along! Bye for now. Kathy baldwin
- K.B., November 2016
Keith in fact did two home inspections for us. Based on his first inspection, we decided NOT to buy a property because we found areas that needed a very significant investment, but which we had not anticipated. That was a very critical piece of advice we got from Keith, with major financial implications. The second inspection too identified a few key issues that we managed to get rectified by the seller prior to purchase. Equally importantly, Keith continues to provide us with advice on various issues that arise from time to time, ranging from recommending maintenance, product/tool purchases, etc. This is exactly the kind of service customers expect of a firm that tries to maintain a continuing relationship with their customers. And I say this as someone who teaches service management at Laurier Business School. As new home owners it gives peace of mind to get this type of advice from an independent person. Thanks, Keith! We would definitely recommend Keith as a building Inspector.
- C.R., November 2016
Every request given to our home inspector was done professionally, fast and reports sent in a timely manner We asked Keith to come back two more times after original inspection and he came and appointments were booked around our schedule and he was always on time and shared all his knowledge He was not is a hurry, he spent quality time with us as new home owners I will be recommending his company to friends and family
- K., Waterloo ON, October 2016
Keith was a pleasure to work with. He was extremely thorough and took the time to show us each area that needed to be addressed. We'd definitely recommend him to anyone in need of a home inspection.
- D.R., August 2016
So glad I went with Keith as an inspector. He bassically saved me thousands of dollars and a lot of headaches by the things he found during my inspection. Very knowledgeable about all aspects of the house and explained everything in ways I would understand. I learned a lot just from listening. Highly recommend using Keith as your inspector. I will be using him before I buy any home.
- E.M., August 2016
Keith was very thorough. His offer to answer questions during the entire ownership period can be extremely helpful to any homeowner.
- C.R., July 2016
We really enjoyed our inspection and the report will be invaluable to us. We can't recommend you enough!
- S.B., July 2016
This was my first time having a home inspection, and Keith Langlois did a wonderful job of assessing the home. He explained every what exactly he was inspecting, and gave useful recommendations and possibilities of concern. Keith was also open to answer any building-related questions that did not necessary pertain to the home. Keith was also friendly and patient throughout the inspection appointment. Overall I am very pleased with Keith's services. I would recommend to share more photos in the inspection report. But nonetheless, thank you very much.

- A.G., June 2016

- W.S., May 2016

- A.A., March 2016
Keith did a thorough job of inspecting the house we had purchased. He pointed out various problems and advice on how to fix them. He also showed us cut-off valves for the water supply and recommended certain things to do for maintenance in the future. I found it highly educational and Keith was very willing to answer questions for us. I would recommend Keith and will use his services again, if need be. Shelley Jennings
- S.J., March 2016
Keith was very knowledgeable, patient and answered all our questions. He gave a very high attention to all details. We would definitely use Keith again and would recommend him to others.
- C.C., March 2016
Keith was courteous, friendly, and careful. He showed respect for the property and explained everything well.
- S.H., February 2016
Thanks a lot Keith. After I followed you around only five minutes I felt very confident that you would provide an honest and extremely thorough inspection of our almost purchased home. The comments that you provided during the tour/inspection were just what I was looking for - complete and in language that a regular homeowner (not a homebuilder/electrician/plumber) could understand. The 12 page report was more detailed than I had anticipated. It will be a very helpful reference when we move in and start looking after the home ourselves. Thank your Keith. Fraser Brown

- L.T., Acton ON, February 2016
Thank you so much, Keith! We were hoping to thank you before now, but have been busy with finishing up conditions for the house. We really appreciate your thorough inspection and for allowing us to ask questions so freely, as first-time home buyers. We had been informed what to expect from the inspection, but you certainly went above and beyond those expectations. The final report was very concise and well presented. We are very pleased, and can see why you came so highly recommended! We will definitely be passing your name along to anyone we know who will be buying a house! Thank you so much; you turned an unknown into an enjoyable, educational experience! Many thanks!

We found Keith to be thorough and knowledgeable. Keith was also organized and ready to work right from the start. We think he does a good job of pointing out issues and being clear about what are concerns/priorities and those items that should be fixed eventually, but are not hazards. The report format is clear and easy to read/follow. We appreciate the ability to follow-up with Keith about any items that require clarification (I assume mostly when we do not understand the terms). Thanks
