A very thorough and knowledgeable inspector who lives here in Treetops.
We just used him for our 30 day and I strongly recommend him. I know of a half dozen others in the community that have used him also.

Terry was amazing! We used him for our one year, he was extremely detailed, provided us will lots of photos and he found a lot more deficiencies than what we initially found. Definitely worth the money and peace of mind!

We also used Terry for our 1-year inspection and he was great! Very thorough and a pleasure.

He was great and found a lot of items we would never have had fixed.

We also used Terry for our one year. He spent about 7 hours at our home and found 68 deficiencies. Biggest deficiency that we never would have found without him - was depleted insulation in areas of the attic. It wasn't secured properly so wind got up inside and blew a lot of it all back -so there were multiple areas where there no longer was insulation. He has a heat gun, which was what he used to detect this. He is very thorough and doesn't miss a thing. I too would highly recommend him.

TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN

 

We were buying a new house in Collingwood and felt we needed a professional Home Inspection as a condition of sale. I asked around and a friend recommended HOMESTAR INSPECTIONS.

 

Within a few days Mr. Terry Griffiths was at my house with a whole battery of tools, testers, probes, and flashlights.

 

He seemed to know everything about the building code and all those things that are both good and not so good about the condition of  the house.  As I followed him around I noticed him taking notes and consulting charts and filling out things on every page of a 25 page checklist.  He explained EVERYTHING to me as he observed, measured and tested all these different categories.

 

I was VERY surprised to see so many different categories in this inspection including waste water, electrical, humidity, plumbing, heating and cooling and so on.  In fact there were 35 different categories. 

 

As he handed me the completed report I was relieved to hear him say that HE would buy this house himself, it was in such good condition and I didn't realise this as it was such an old house.

 

Thank you so much Mr. Griffiths,

 

Brian and Elaine Rose, Collingwood, Ontario
