Home inspection in the Ottawa area is not regulated by any provincial or municipal government agencies. Without any regulation in place many companies have entered the industry acting as home inspectors while lacking the necessary education and skills. As a graduate of Seneca College and with a commitment to continued education, we have been providing the highest quality inspection services for over 10 years. But don’t take our word for it, here is what our clients have to say:

Home Inspections Reports

Lucas was the inspector for the home we wanted to purchase. I was present during his inspection and I found Lucas to be very professional. He was thorough in his inspection and respectful of our home. His final report was detailed and well put together. When we needed to reference the report, the information was easily found.

Ryan

Home Inspections Reports

I wasn’t present during the inspection but the electronic inspection report Lucas provided us made it seem like I was. It was filled with useful information like links to items he was referring to. His report helped us to easily understand the work that needed to be done and the timeline required. As first time home buyers we appreciated his guidance and knowledge.

Samantha

Home Inspections Reports

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

Home Inspections Reports

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 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!

Lucas will inspect a home and provide a report on site as well as a more detailed report along with pictures shortly after. He is always available to provide ideas and recommendations after the inspection and even after the clients move into the home. A Class inspector."

"I have recommended Lucas to all of my clients, and without exception all who used him were completely satisfied. Lucas supplies a comprehensive report and detailed analysis complete with photos. I consider him an asset to my business."

Christine Bennett, Real Estate Salesperson

Home Inspections Reports

"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."
