Being under a time crunch approaching the end of our second 'house-hunting' trip to Qualicum/Parksville, we were very appreciative of John being able to conduct his inspection on less than 1 days notice. Onsite first thing in the morning, he was able to give us a thorough report with explanation while patiently answering all our questions before noon which enabled us to finalize our decision that day. A full written report followed the next morning. Outstanding service. Highly recommended.

I cannot thank you enough John for saving me from making a huge mistake. If it was not for you, I might have ended up with a home that would be nothing but a "money pit".

John was punctual, efficient and very informative. He took his time to review the report with my client to ensure everything was covered.

We were very pleased with the WETT Level 2 inspection service provided by John D'Aigle on a wood burning fireplace/masonry chimney, as well as a wood burning stove/superpipe chimney. We needed a really quick response time due to a subject removal deadline crunch, and John rearranged his schedule to accommodate us, even travelling over to Port Alberni to do so. John's reports - both verbal update and formal written reports - were easy to understand and follow along, and provided us with exactly the information we needed to be able to move forward confidently with our home purchase, knowing exactly what we needed to budget for, and how to keep our family and home safe.

- C.W., Qualicum Beach BC, August 2018
We have worked with a half-dozen home inspectors over the years and John is now top of our list and will be the first we call if we need home inspection services again. He's very thorough and knowledgeable, understands the special needs of older not-to-code construction techniques, his photography is excellent, he's patient and helpful, and right on schedule. We wouldn't hesitate for a second recommending and using John again in the future.
- G.G., Vancouver BC, June 2018

We were so happy with John's service! He was accommodating, on time, very thorough and took the time to explain his findings in a manner in which we could understand.

We would use him again in a instant, and definitely recommend him to others!

I particularly appreciated you sitting down with me and going over the details. I found this very helpful.
- 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.

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.

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.
- 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.

- 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!

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.
- 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.

- 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.

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.
