"Lucas was very thorough and although I didn't talk to him much during the inspection, I could see that he was paying attention to the littlest of details.  After the inspection was over he thoroughly went over all his concerns about the home.  He told me which tradesmen did a great job in the home and which ones weren't so good.  When I asked him at the end would he buy the house he said, "it's a solid, well built home and yes I would buy it".  The next morning, he emailed me the final report WITH pictures detailing every issue that should be addressed and things that should be monitored before they become issues.  RCHI is money well spent before making a huge home purchase.  Lucas is the home inspector that I would be recommending to everyone"
Zeke - Buyer

"Lucas was referred to us by our Realtor Shane Silva. Being first time home buyers, we didn't know what to expect with a home inspection. Lucas was very thorough with his inspection. When he completed, he took the time to explain things to us in terms that we understood, answering any questions we had. I loved the on-site print out, as well as the very detailed report, which also included suggestions to help improve or repair our new home-to-be. Being first time buyers, we aren't aware of the costs of supplies/labour, and were provided with a very detailed break down of the average costs to do improvements or repairs to give a basic idea. I thought this was very handy to have for reference. I highly recommend Lucas from Russell Certified Home Inspections! Very professional, kind and a pleasure to do business with! I can't forget to mention...thank you for the delicious cookies."

I would highly recommend RCHI to anyone in need of a home inspection. Lucas was thorough and took the time to review the main findings upon completion and also answer all of our questions. His report was delivered on time and was easy to understand listing issues that he had found as well as recommended professionals that could assist us in our home repairs.

I can't recommend Lucas highly enough. He showed up bang on time, was incredibly friendly, incredibly thorough, answered all my questions (and there were many!) and made sure that I was satisfied before leaving. The fact Lucas printed off a preliminary report on the spot before leaving was amazing. Followed by a much more detailed report the very next morning was just awesome. I will definitely be using Lucas in the future and will be referring him to anyone who inquires about an inspector in the Ottawa area. Thanks again Lucas!

I was very pleased with how thorough Lucas was in doing the inspection at the condo last night.I always need to feel comfortable where there is a need to ask questions and Lucas stressed how he welcomed any questions.Very professional but just as important is his mannerism with people. Thank you Lucas! I will pass your business card on to our lawyer so that she can recommend you to others,like ourselves,who need to know the name of a reliable home inspector to do their inspections.

Lucas Russell RCHI had been recommended to my wife and I for a house inspection that was done yesterday afternoon May 30th, 2017 Lucas certainly did not disappoint! We were greatly impressed by his professionalism as well as his ability to engage with us at our inexperienced level. There is no doubt whatsoever that Lucas is knowledgeable, a good communicator, loves what he is doing and as a result is thorough in the task at hand. Lucas made it quite clear following our discussion around the results of the inspection of his availability if we ever had anything further that needed clarification or to be discussed. My wife and I found that generous offer of support to be extremely reassuring. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Lucas to others looking for a "Home Inspector" and the home-made delicious cookies were a nice touch. Thank you for everything, Lucas!

We can't say enough good things about The service we received! Incredibly professional, thorough and well organized. We have had inspections done by other companies, and Lucas was the best by far. We appreciated the knowledgeable explanation of issues and the detailed report with photographs that followed. He even brought cookies that his wife made, and apples to tide us over during his 4-hour analysis of the home. We couldn't be happier with the service and will recommend Lucas to anyone in need of a home inspection.

Lucas is definitely the building inspector we would choose again and again. This is the second time we have needed his services and he helped make our choice of home an easy one. While he's not only the most professional and knowledgeable inspector, but he puts him home buyers first, in making us feel confident in our home choices. btw his wife makes great cookies. : He certainly will be our recommendation to everyone.

Lucas, was amazing! Extremely professional, thorough, and detailed inspector. Answered all my questions, when through all the report and pointed out all the areas that needed to be addressed. Came out on a stat holiday to do my inspection which I was very grateful to him for doing this, and amazed that he would do this. Overall excellent service and very personable person. Thank you once again Lucas, and your wife's cookies were a very nice added touch! Kind regards, Pat
