I can't speak highly enough of the inspection Eugene did of our house. We had a moisture humidity issue and I called him on a Thursday and he came out on a Friday. He was extremely thorough. He investigated from the crawlspace of our house all the way up into the attic and found the source of the moisture. He explained the issues in an easy to understand way and also provided a solution to the issue. I will definitely recommend Eugene and his company to friends and family.

There are many complex choices to make when buying a home, but if you want the very best home inspection possible then the choice is simple: choose EKAN Home Inspection! Working with Eugene is a pleasure; he is incredibly knowledgeable, communicative and thorough. During our inspection Eugene diligently took us through every detail and made sure we had the most comprehensive picture of our new home. He patiently answered questions and gave us thoughtful answers. Upon receiving our written report, I was again impressed by the attention to detail and felt very reassured about the inspection process so that we could make the best decision for our family on this important purchase. Eugene’s work is superlative, and I wholeheartedly recommend EKAN Home Inspection.

I spent a considerable amount of time researching area inspectors and it can be difficult to tell what level of service and knowledge each service provider can offer. After reading some of Eugene’s blog posts, his posted experience and other online reviews I knew EKAN home inspection would be the right person for the job. I reached out to Eugene and he was quick to reply, asked relevant questions upfront and was extremely professional. He also shared items related to code of ethics which I thought was prudent. On the day of inspection he showed up on time and had all equipment ready to go. He happened to be training someone new to the field, which I saw as a plus. Not only did it feel like I was getting a second set of eyes on the property, but the new hire was asked to vocalize his observations which allowed me to learn at the same time. As the inspection took place the depth of his knowledge quickly became apparent. He provided a thorough debrief and answered all of my questions. The final report was issued within 24 hours. Should I ever need to refer a home inspector or need one again I will definitely reach out to EKAN home inspection!

Ekan provided us with the confidence to navigate our new home purchase. Eugene is professional, courteous and detailed. In addition to a thorough walk-through of their inspection, we were provided with a detailed report that has proven very helpful in managing insurance and future plans for the house.

Eugene was able to attend to my home inspection on fairly short notice. He was prompt, reliable and did a very thorough job. I was able to use his inspection report to both negotiate the home price, as well as in lieu of electrical and plumbing inspections requested by the insurer. Thanks Eugene!

I would like to thank Eugene from Ekan Inspections for doing a wonderful job on our home inspection. Eugene is a friendly gentleman with a wealth of knowledge when it comes to inspecting homes. He performed an extremely thorough inspection of the structure, roof, deck, plumbing, electrical and exterior items such as driveway, retaining walls and drainage around the foundation. He also provided information on aspects of the house that will require ongoing maintenance as well as changes that may lead to problems that are brewing. Eugene’s sent me a complete report. He listed any deficiencies including any safety items that would most likely be overlooked. If you are looking for an experienced detail-oriented home inspector I would highly recommend him.

I am a first time buyer who is looking for a house for our family. Finding the right house was at times quite overwhelming for me and my husband. Hiring Eugene was the best decision in the whole buying process. Eugene is very kind and professional, with incredible attention to detail. He was incredibly flexible accommodating last minute changes for us. He always took the time to talk to me and answered all my questions. With his detailed and clear report we were able to make educated decisions that saved us lots of money. We’re confident that Eugene is the best home inspector on the Coast, would recommend him to anyone needing a truly professional inspection.

We used Eugene to carry out an inspection of a West Vancouver condo that we were considering buying. He did an excellent job, focused on all the relevant issues, and took the time to explain everything to us - both inside the condo and throughout the building. His knowledge, experience and professionalism were apparent from start to finish. I would recommend him to anyone needing a home inspection.

Buying a house is a daunting process. Ben & Eugene were so professional, knowledgeable and reliable. I can’t recommend them more. My inspection report is something I can refer to for years and is user friendly. Seriously amazing humans to works with .

I've worked with a number of inspectors over the years on the Coast and this is the first time I've worked with Eugene. He was responsive, prompt and, moreover, I received a nicely written up report, not like the scribbled ones I've received from other inspectors here. He will be my "go to" moving forwards.

We used EKAN home inspection for a home we were interested in getting in Gibsons, and they provided an incredibly thorough, insightful and valuable home inspection of the property. If you’re looking for honesty and for a detail oriented approach, highly recommend working with Eugene and his team! You will be in great hands!

Exceptional service! Thorough and knowledgeable and honest. I absolutely recommend EKAN Home Inspection to everyone. Thanks again!

I was on the fence at first as to whether we needed a home inspection for a small new build. I called Ekan and they explained why it may be in my best interest. After going through the inspection I feel like it was very good value! I had an exceptionally challenging week leading up to my closing date and I easily would have missed most of the deficiencies they pointed out in the report. Eugene's experience is so evident; I wouldn't hesitate to recommend his services to future buyers.

When my realtor fell ill, Eugene offered to accompany me to view three listings with 20 minutes notice. When we were done viewing the 3 properties Eugene directed me to look at ' . Well I fell in love with this waterfront property instantly. Eugene helped me make a very important, and valuable business decision. Needless to say I recommend him wholeheartedly.

Eugene allowed me to attend the full 3+ hour inspection, which really enhanced my understanding of the home and what it needed. His report and photos are very detailed and easy to act on. Overall I felt that I got good value for the money spent and we were able to buy the home with confidence. Thanks Eugene!

Eugene did a pre-purchase inspection for a home I really wanted to like, but which had some features that were too complex for me to judge without some expertise. There is a good reason to use a Professional Engineer as a Home Inspector: The profession provides a deep understanding of the ways that the forces of nature conspire to conquer whatever humans build, and it encourages a rigorous attention to detail. I'm really happy that Eugene inspected the home. We walked together throughout the inspection, with Eugene not only pointing out any areas of concern, but also teaching me about the home and how I could best maintain it. By the end of the inspection I had a thorough understanding of the home, and could properly assess its pros and cons. I highly recommend walking with Eugene as he inspects. He is an interesting and informative person, and you'll learn a lot. And by the way, I love the home even more now!

Eugene provide excellent service for our home inspection, particularly as first time home buyers. He is a consummate professional and clearly passionate about his work. He provides clear information on the positive and negative issues and is excited to highlight good workmanship in a home. We would recommend him to others.

When we needed a house inspection in a hurry, Eugene was highly recommended as the most thorough person. He squeezed us in to meet our deadline. But he did not cut any corners. We got 42 page detailed report as well as a phone call to see if we had any questions on his report. For each category (roof, plumbing, electrical, interior, etc) he described in detail the condition as good, acceptable or requiring attention. Anything that requires attention had recommended work and urgency. I would highly recommend EKAN Home Inspections.

Eugene did an incredibly thorough job on our home inspection. We are first time buyers and this was our first home inspection, so we weren’t sure exactly what to expect, but had done our research. He was very welcoming to our presence, explained all of his findings in an easy to understand manner, and encouraged our questions. He provided us with a report the same day as the inspection, which was very detailed. Definitely would work with him again.

We had an excellent experience with Eugene. He conducted a thorough inspection of all components of a unique property, provided a very detailed and easy to read report, and was available for discussion on any follow up questions. I would not hesitate to recommend his home inspection services.

I'm incredibly grateful to have had Eugene inspect a unique home we were interested in buying. His passion and knowledge for buildings is obvious from the start. He's honest and very clear in his explanations and isn't shy to give you his opinions. I will absolutely use Eugene again in the future.

We hired Eugene for our home inspection July 2020. He returned my initial call promptly and we quickly schedule his time. He arrived on time as planned and took my partner through the home inspection with him. He was thorough and our report was comprehensive with a lot of photos of his inspection. The turnaround for the report was very quick and paying him was very easy. I highly recommend EKAN Home Inspection.
