Mike Holmes Inspection Mike Holmes Inspection - A COMPANY YOU CANNOT TRUST Ontario
My story began with booking a Pre-Purchase Extended Inspection that was scheduled in July 2013. I have decided to hire Mike Holmes Inspection based on the TV Show and the Credibility it exhibited and Projected to do Things Right. As advertised “Mike Holmes Inspections – High Quality Home Inspections You Can Trust”. It is important in the construction industry to hire The Right Professionals(and boy have we learned !!!) In addition we wanted to ensure we receive the best Professional High Quality Advise we can buy. Therefore we Purchased an Extended Inspection that included Thermography – In order to be effective and detect Serious Problems - As advertised on their website. Based on the Concluded Inspection it appeared the property did not have any major damage. Upon completion of the purchase and receiving possession of the house, we were excited to move in to our first property with full confident that we received a professional, expert opinion ensuring the property is in a good condition. As part of the moving process, we decided to give the place a fresh coat of paint. When we started with the basement, it was apparent that there is something Visibly wrong but we did not know what it was. We decided to bring a contractor to provide us with a professional opinion and it was determined that we had Moisture And mould due to water leak. We were extremely shocked and surprised that after an Extended Inspection with Thermography imaging, and trusting a Mike Holmes inspector that we find Ourselves in a very difficult position, questioning the very fact about the quality and the professional opinion we received. it took us by surprise since the inspector failed to mention any moisture problems in the basement while he had the Thermography camera. We Paid for a Top Quality as the TV Show advertise all about doing things right, and having the right people do the job, yet with a great disappointment we find Ourselves facing a $20,000 repair that we have to do. When Someone such as Mike Holmes in the construction business talks About quality and ensuring you do it right, come to face the very reality that his own company failed to "do it right" . When Trust is Lost and Credibility is shattered where do we go from here. Our Experience and Expectation has been met with a great disappointment.
Do not trust the Mike Holmes Inspection Promise of Quality - It is our responsibility to share our experience with the public so they can learn and not fall victim.
