We booked Allan for a home inspection for a townhouse we recently purchased and were extremely impressed with his services. Allan was extremely thorough, inspecting and documenting the entire property (He also finished the inspection in less time than anticipated). He provided us with a detailed report right after completing the inspection and walked us through all the issues he found with the property. He also provided us with all the photos from the inspection in a timely manner. This gave us peace of mind about our purchase and allowed us to give a detailed and accurate list to the current owner of what areas we wanted to be repaired. We highly recommend Allan for your next home inspection.

You did a home inspection on our house last November 2012, at Grand Ravine Drive. Jamie and I just wanted to thank you for being so thorough in our home inspection and alerting us to the recall on the Vanee filtration system attached to our furnace, and advising us to leave the Vanee unit unplugged until we get the unit fixed for the recall.
Unfortunately, this past Saturday night, our neighbours had a pretty serious house fire, and the cause was the Vanee filtration system. The fire evidently started as an electrical fire and quickly grew in their basement. The couple was able to get out on time because luckily, the pregnant wife was unable to sleep and decided to watch a movie in the family room when she smelled the fire. Their immediate neighbours were also able to get out time, but there is serious damage to the house and the houses on either sides from the smoke. The owners moved in 1 year or so before us, and their home inspector did not point out the Vanee recall, so the couple had no idea of it.
You literally could have saved our lives! As soon as we moved into the house we unplugged the unit.
The majority of the houses in our area were built with this unit and it seems the majority had no idea of the recall. When our neighbours asked us about it, we said we knew, but only because of our home inspector.
It is all very scary, and we feel so thankful because that could have easily been us!
We will certainly use you again for any future homes we purchase!
As a first time home buyer, I was a bit apprehensive about tagging along for the home inspection. I know next to nothing about heating, plumbing and home construction, so I was worried that I wouldn't fully grasp everything we saw. Allan was fantastic about explaining everything, even the smallest of details, in a way that made perfect sense. He was more than happy to answer every question I had, including a few that were probably a bit dumb. He was exceptionally thorough in his inspection, incredibly friendly and a pleasure to work with.
I recently had an experience when I was really glad that Allan from ACISS Home Inspections was doing a home inspection for my buyers. Allan found vermiculite in the attic and he was able to take the samples immediately, properly and safely I might add. He sent the samples via courier to the lab and looked after getting the testing done. The results came back within 2 days and we were able to pre negotiate with the Sellers so that my Buyers could still proceed with the home they love. Everyone is happy and safe and everything was handled efficiently and in a timely manner.

Just a note to let you know that I was tremendously pleased with the way my home inspection was carried out last Saturday.
Peter appeared to have a high degree of knowledge and expertise every step of the way. In addition he was very professional and helpful throughout the process and I felt very comfortable that the resulting product was accurate and thorough -- and I bought this house.
The first time, with your inspector Wayne, his knowledge and assessment steered me away from the home for many good reasons. This time, your inspector's reaction to every test he did, gave me the confidence I needed to purchase the home.
I have been very pleased with your company and will not hesitate to recommend you to anyone who should need a home inspection.
Finally a house deal I could do an inspection on and not have to waive it!!!
I just wanted to tell you that tonight at 4pm I had Wayne do the inspection for my Burlington folks purchase and I and my client were thrilled with Wayne's knowledge , professionalism and service!! We were both thrilled obviously from different perspectives...I am also happy that you could accomodate me at such short notice... I have emailed Sandra Doyle and let her know as well how happy I was...top notch service Allan , I am thrilled!! If you need a testimonial for Wayne no problem!

Allan Spisak from A.C.I.S.S. inspected the house I bought in July of 2010. His report was extremely detailed and he documented a lot of issues. Many of the issues were "hidden" such as moisture in the crawl space and a piece of insulation missing in the attic. He also noted very minor problems such as a handle missing on the garden hose outside, etc.
I showed the inspection to two of my contractor friends, and they mentioned that it was a really good inspection. There were pictures of every issue cited in the inspection, with an estimate of the cost to repair.
I decided to buy the house despite the issues as the house was a good price which allowed money for renovations. Allan's inspection was bang on. Every problem he mentioned proved to be accurate (ie cracks in the foundation which produced mould behind the walls in the basement) and no issues have surfaced that weren't on Allan's inspection report.
I'm so glad I was prepared for the renovations that needed to be done. Packing and moving into a new house is challenging enough without running into unexpected expenses in the new house.
I would highly recommend A.C.I.S.S. for your home inspection.
I've had the good fortune to recommend ACISS Home Inspection services to my Real Estate clients and colleagues. Allan Spisak's service is professional and reliable.

Allan Spisak and A.C.I.S.S. has proven over the years to be such a Company.”
