The Inspector

Home Inspection Services Inc.

More than just a Home Inspection!


Some kind words from past clients.

Your obvious experience and enthusiasm gave me the confidence that I was making an informed decision. Your charming personality really put me at ease in this stressful process. (M&C)


Shawn is very thorough and experienced. He knows his stuff and takes time to educate as he explains his findings. I feel like I understand all the building issues whether big, small or non-existent and the best practices to mitigate problems. I am completely confident in Shawn's ability to inspect/assess any home and I trust his feedback.   Dave


Thank you so much for the care you put into our inspection today, and for bringing such a peaceful and positive energy to what I usually find to be such a stressful day! I hope we get this home so we don't have to do any more pre-inspections, but I truly hope our paths cross with yours again in some other capacity!!  Surita.

2 days later - I meant to email you yesterday - we actually were successful in our offer! I feel like your presence in the space brought us the extra magic we needed to finally get an offer accepted!! So double thanks to you for that! :) Surita

Many thanks for doing my home inspection, we felt you did an excellent job as did our Real Estate agent. The way you took the time to explain all the details in a way that I could understand was very much appreciated.  I will certainly keep your contact information and be more than happy to refer you to my friends.  Many thanks for a job well done.  G.Svedic

We had the fortunate opportunity of engaging Shawn's services for inspection of a new construction project at our home in Vancouver. Six months after new construction, we noticed mold and moisture. Shawn came to conduct a full inspection and prepared a detailed report identifying 24 construction deficiencies. The report was sent to our contractor and used by the new construction team to reconstruct our entire garage. This allowed us to avoid litigation and move forward quickly with reconstruction. Shawn's advice was invaluable throughout this process and his knowledge regarding all of the issues including electrical, drywall, roofing, venting, and more was second to none. He is clearly a leader in his field and anyone having the opportunity to use his services should not hesitate to do so.

As a General Contractor with more than 20 years of construction experience, I can't stress enough how important it is to have the right building inspection, with the right building inspector done before you purchase your home.

With his extensive background in construction Shawn is one of the most knowledgeable, professional, meticulously thorough individuals I have met in the industry. He is the only inspector I would recommend. - "Luke"


Kind Words from a Realtor;   “ Shawn Anderson provides a wealth of knowledge and in-depth information during his inspection process. The client receives a very thorough written inspection report as well as a electronic copy of the inspection report. Shawn gives a very insightful review into any building maintenance issues and/or recommended repairswhich may be facing the client after the their purchase. He offers positive solutions to any issues or repairs. After experiencing with my clients a number of inspections completed by Shawn, I would not hesitate to recommend his professional services again to past clients and to future clients”, I am a 30 year Westside Vancouver realtor” - Bill


Not only did I find Shawn (my inspector) very thorough, knowledgeable and professional, but I found him very personable as well. It's amazing how far personality goes to make the process of buying a home, which can be extremely stressful, a more pleasant experience. I have no doubt that Shawn 'knows his stuff' and gave me an accurate assessment of the property, but he was also a very pleasant person, giving me the information I needed in a way that made it easy for me (a person with limited house or construction experience) to understand.

Shawn was meticulous and thorough in his work. Although the inspection uncovered many issues with the house and ultimately resulted in us choosing not to move forward with our purchase, we are appreciative that we didn't get ourselves into a bad situation, having to incur a lot of expenses in the near future to make the home safe and liveable to our standards.”(P.P)


“The honesty & clarity with which Shawn explained problems with our future purchase. We will definitely use him again. A very nice person.” (J.B)


“Shawn was very professional and unbiased. He was very thorough in his inspection and took the time to explain everything to me. I was very impressed and appreciative for the work he did”.(L.S)


“Shawn was awesome. He answered all my questions in layman's terms not construction language. Gave me great ideas on other things I can in my place.” (R.K)


“I had a confidence - inspiring meeting with Shawn, as I was able to be present during his inspection of a home that I subsequently purchased. I found him to be engaging, thorough, knowledgeable and eager to educate. In turn, I felt confident that in making an offer to purchase, I was doing the right thing. Nice work!”. (S.S)


“Shawn was very knowledgeable, and he answered all my questions with no problem even if I ask twice, thanks to his answers I felt more comfortable buying my place.” (S.N)


“Shawn was brilliant. Really couldn't have wished to a more knowledgeable, helpful and friendly surveyor. Not only did he point out things that he may have had concerns about, but he also highlighted all the positives as well. I fully intend on using his services again (with the purchase of an investment property in the future) and he will be highly recommended to anyone requiring a surveyor. “ (S.C)
