About Us

At West Country Inspections we believe inspectors should have more than a government mandated training course to fully understand all the conditions that may be present in a home.

Often there are clues to an underlying problem that only a trained and experienced tradesperson will recognize.  

Dan has over 25 years of experience building, renovating and repairing homes as a Red Seal Journeyman carpenter.  This coupled with the latest in inspection technology and an eye for detail gives you peace of mind that there will be no surprises when you take possession of your new home.

Our inspection process is very thorough and often exceeds CAPHI Standard of Practice to ensure your best interests are met.  With a solid list of trades people at hand, all systems and components in your home will receive expert attention. Look no further for the best in customer service, value for money and ongoing support after you move in.
