Superprofessional and Amazing customer service with competitive prices.
Thanks goodness we engaged Owner Inspections as our independent inspector for our build. The defects identified in our build have been concerning. Who knows what the finished product would have been like without these inspections.

I recently used Owner Inspections and was thoroughly impressed. The team arrived on time, were professional and efficient, and identified several issues that I wouldn't have noticed myself. Their report was detailed and easy to understand, and I feel much more confident in the condition of my property thanks to their work. Highly recommend!

Owner Inspections has done 5 inspections so far and it has been very thorough so far. Reports are given pretty much within an hour from the inspection. They have been very flexible with appointments as our SS then, kept changing the dates and times at a very short notice and Des in the office has been very helpful with short notices. Burak was the inspector who did most of our inspections and got things sorted out with the SS pretty quickly. Waiting for the PCI inspection and hopefully it turns out well. Thanks Des and Burak for your assistance throughout. 😊
High attention to detail. Our framing stage inspection was performed by Burak who provided detailed report and seems knowledgeable. The submitted report mentioned everything from a minor to a major defect which could impact the structure. Keep up the good work.
