Thorough and detailed going through the entirety of the home inspection. Investigated all aspects that may be cause for concern, and at a very affordable price. Better to pay a small amount now, rather than a huge amount later! Thanks Victoria

We had the pleasure of Victoria doing our pre-purchase inspection and were very pleased. She was thorough and provided a very detailed report of the unit as well as the entire building. She even got up on the roof for a close inspection - now that is dedication to her craft! The fact she is the only female Home Inspector in the Lower Mainland was an added bonus! We would recommend Allegiant Inspections without hesitation to anyone considering buying or selling, or even for new builds (let her find what we may overlook).
