Steve is very knowledgeable about all aspects of house construction and the Ontario Building Code. The inspection took about three hours and was thorough. The report including photos documented the structure and equipment specifications, reliability and deficiencies. He was very approachable and answered all my queries.

Steve was great to work with and did a very thorough inspection of the property we were looking at. The use of the drone, moisture meter and thermal imaging as well Steve's overall experience was very comforting. He allowed me to follow him on every step and pointed out everything that needed attention.
We will use Steve again for any future house inspections and recommend Pillar To Post to anyone we hear is looking to move.
- The thoroughness of the inspection.
- How the inspector (Steve Lawson) put his concerns into perspective in terms of priority and cost as well as the consequences of not addressing them. It allows us to prioritize and budget for repairs.
- The printed report highlighting these concerns as well as any recommendations to mitigate any future problems (i.e. removal of a tree, HVAC near end of life, etc.).
- Pictures of concern areas.
Please pass on our thanks and appreciation.
We were out of Canada when we bought our cottage so relied very heavily on the inspections Pillar to Post carried out for us.
All aspects from engaging Pillar to Post to appointment, scheduling, receiving reports to our trans-atlantic calls went smoothly.
Trudi is warm and friendly - I would have liked to give her a hug. Steve Lawson's 14-page report was thorough and detailed. His feedback was honest.

Pillar to Post did an amazing job of explaining each aspect of the home inspection and educated me on the importance of maintaining a home. I was surprised by the amount of complications that could arise from a small crack here and there. 10/10 I would reccomend Pillar to Post for any first time home buyer or even for a routine check up on the property if you are considering starting renovations.
