I have dealt with Doug on numerous occasions when he inspected homes for my clients. Doug is always professional, courteous and reliable and goes out of his way to make sure my clients and myself have all our questions and concerns answered. If I need extra explanations he is on standby and willing to go the extra mile. I would never hesitate to recommend Doug to my friends and my clients.
Dinah, Buyer
I was so pleased with the prompt service we received from Doug (and Norah at reception). I contacted them last minute and they really went out of their way and out of normal work hours to make the inspection happen. If it weren't for their flexibility, we would have lost our home (because the Ottawa market is so hot!) Doug was also very professional and thorough answering every question and concern. There was so much attention to detail. Doug and Norah really care about their customers! Thank you both again for everything!!

Doug Kendall has completed a number of inspections throughout the last few years and I cannot recommend him more highly. His inspections were professional, thorough and complete. They were not the type of inspection to just “make the deal happen” but rather a thorough inspection to allow my clients to make totally informed decisions. His work and experience provided my clients with excellent information and guidance for their purchase experience. He was always prompt and courteous and I would have absolutely no reservation recommending him to any of my family, friends, colleagues or clients. His guidance should be taken into consideration for any purchase that he is involved in. We find it truly unfortunate that Doug chose to relocate and it has left us scrambling to find another inspector with the same dedication and professionalism that Doug demonstrated but we do wish him successes in Ottawa! Rick French, Broker Bowes & Cocks Limited, Brokerage Apsley, Ontario K0L 1A0 705-656-4422 Doug, please feel free to use this recommendation if you choose where ever you choose and please feel free to give my name and number to anyone that wants a personal recommendation! Kindest Regards Rick

I just spent the last couple of hours going over the inspection report in detail. I have to say I am really impressed with the detail and quality of the report. As we went through the home, it was difficult for me to determine how serious some of the findings were, but our discussion afterwards and the detail in the report has been of great benefit to Janet and I. Not only does it give us a piece of mind in terms of the state of the home prior to finalizing the purchase, it will be of great value as we prioritize those things which we will repair and address in the home. It also reinforced a number of things we had determined that we would need to do. Once again, we really appreciate your time and efforts.
