As a first time home buyer, I am very new to the inner workings of a house. Phil was patient, thorough, and extremely knowledgeable of every aspect of a house. Every inch of the house (inside and outside) was covered and explained incredibly well. I learned a lot throughout the entire experience and many issues a regular person would not see or think of, were brought to my attention. I am so thankful I found him before buying my first home.

well worth it!

They say that the third time is a charm and this was certainly true for home inspection number three that Phil conducted for me. Not only did the findings of the inspection go better than I expected but I met Phil in person for the first time and was able to watch him do his thing firsthand. He is very thorough and explains what he's looking for and why. He offers suggestions for solving any issues he discovers in the moment. He is an expert in his field and he readily shares his knowledge with you. There was one item that was concerning and he prepared me for what I might expect and provided an estimated cost to correct if it was necessary. A few hours after the inspection was completed I received an email from Phil. He had researched this item from the product manual and discovered that it wasn't going to be an issue after all and I was in the clear. He provided the link to the appropriate information in case I needed it as a reference. This was going over and above what he needed to do but he did it anyway. His work ethic is outstanding, his customer service is extraordinary and he is honest. After all was said and done I could feel that he was genuinely happy for me that I had finally found the right home and there was little for me to worry about. Obviously as I have used his services three times I am a satisfied customer. If you need a home inspection done, Phil is the right man for the job. You may be disappointed with some of his findings but you will not be disappointed with the service he will provide to you. Thank you Phil for everything and it was a pleasure to meet you! If anyone ever wants a verbal reference from one of your clients I'd be happy to speak with them.

Extremely professional, very thorough and the report was very easy to understand. It's also very reassuring knowing if you have any questions Phil responds quickly. We would strongly recommend this company. Thankyou again!

Very impressed!

Phil’s report is so detailed! The action list and multiple pictures are beyond any inspector’s report I have ever seen. Phil called us personally to discuss the process and get a sense of any concerns we may have seen on our tour of the house so that he may address them in his report, I highly recommend him! Very impressed! Thanks Phil.

You cannot do better than this guy!!!

I've had previous home inspections done but their reports have not been nearly as detailed, knowledgeable, clear, or to the point as Phil's has been. In addition to this Phil's site provides a wealth of information and vetted (!!!) recommendations and on top of all that, he is responsive to questions(no matter how dumb), articulate, and generous in the time and effort he is willing to devote to a client/customer. You cannot do better than this guy!!!

heartily recommend his service

Our inspection report was extremely detailed, well organized, and written in a way I could easily understand the issue and what needed to be corrected now as a priority, or could wait to the future. Lots of links to helpful sights were included, and lots of pictures. Phil did a great job for us and we would heartily recommend his service to anyone looking for a home inspection.

expert advice and excellent customer service

★★★★★

Phil has done two home inspections for me over the course of the last six months. He provides a very detailed report coupled with some expert advice and excellent customer service. He is always willing to set aside time to discuss the report and answer all of your questions no matter how many you have. He is extremely knowledgeable. In addition to the thorough report he provides, the ReHome Inspections website is very user friendly and has a multitude of resources available at your fingertips. As I was residing in another province during the inspections unfortunately I was not able to attend and watch Phil in action. However I did have representation during one of them and the report back was all positive! I would highly recommend Phil and the Home Inspection service he provides.

We found the inspection report extremely detailed, easy to follow and relevant for prospective purchasers of an older home and at a reasonable cost.

We engaged ReHome to do a home inspection on a property we wanted to buy. Philipp inspected carefully and thoroughly, explaining his findings as we followed him around asking questions. He arrived well prepared with lighting, camera, short and long ladders, and test meters for electrical function and moisture detection. He was extremely professional in conduct and demeanor despite the excessive effort it took to go through this old property which had been added onto and changed over time. His report included detailed photos and descriptions of defects, as well as explanations of proper repair or replacement. He completed his full report immediately after the inspection on the same day. In addition to the report, he provided an Action Item summary, which we found extremely effective for further discussions to arrive at final terms of purchase. I would certainly hire ReHome again, and highly recommend Philipp's work to anyone buying a home or otherwise needing a thorough home inspection.

detailed and informative

We couldn't be at the home inspection, so can not comment on Phil conducting the inspection. However the report Phil sent was very detailed and informative with lots of photos. He was easily contactable if there was any questions or concerns we had. I would recommend Rehome Inspections.

ReHome inspections provide an excellent thorough and courteous service. Phillip patiently explained things as he progressed and was happy to answer all my questions. His action list and comprehensive report was received later the same day. His reports are accompanied with photographs which are extremely useful. He also was able to recommend who in the area could do specific quality work related to his findings. He has a comprehensive web site with a myriad of further information. I highly recommend ReHome inspections to anyone purchasing a home in the Annapolis Royal area.

I enjoyed following Phil through the house as he did his inspection. The thorough inspection revealed unforeseen issues with the roof and helped convince the seller to lower the price by $5,000. Thanks Phil!

Phil was recommended to us by our real estate agent as the best person to thoroughly inspect our potential new home. We immediately knew we made the right choice. From first email to first meeting and throughout the whole process Phil was friendly, clear, and completely reliable. He allowed us to be with him throughout the entire inspection. I had no doubts in his ability when I saw how thoroughly he checked each specific area and he answered all my questions and concerns. He even went above and beyond "just" inspecting and actually had ideas on how to fix, upgrade, or improve things to prevent issues later on. I have never worked with another inspector but I cannot imagine that I would ever choose anyone else in the future. I left the inspection feeling like I understood everything and was prepared for what needed to be done, without being scared, confused, or overwhelmed. I cannot say enough about Phil. I have already decided to have him come back after some of our suggested changes are completed because I trust his opinion and skill on my new investment. A truly great inspector with a great personality and work ethic. A joy to work with him!

Phil was prompt, knowledgeable, and very thorough in his inspection. The report contained photographs to illustrate items to be addressed along with clear explanations.

Phil was very thorough, his attention to detail was over and above what we expected. As out-of-town buyers, we really appreciated all the photos. Communication was excellent. He answered all our questions and was very accommodating. We also appreciated his suggestions on what should be addressed first, potential costs as well as a list of contractors in the area. We highly recommend him.

We had a great experience with Phil as we accompanied him while he did our house inspection. We would highly recommend him. We were so pleased with his great report too. Just a tip for insurance purposes, get Phil to do your inspection first because all the questions about pipes, wiring etc that the insurance company asked was all in Phil's report. We were very pleased with reHome Inspection. Thanks Phil for a job well done!!

The inspector, Phil, was there on time. He explained to me verbally, the major things that needed to be considered, and also the minor things. All my questions that I had were answered. The report was professional and thorough. Part of his service was that any follow up questions after the report were welcome. And yes, I did correspond afterwords and Phil answered.

Great Job! Philipp was incredibly thorough, checked all important aspects of the home including the not fun to check things like: the roof, and attic, under deck areas etc. As well as pointed important safety and mechanical considerations which could easily be overlooked during the busy time of purchasing Our home. He was on time, friendly, and easily surpassed Our expectations of a home inspection! Thanks again. Don and Nancy.

Phil of ReHome Inspections did a presale inspection report on my 160 year old house in Bear River on Sunday. I am so pleased with the excellent service that he provided including both pre and post the inspection. The process was outlined clearly and the report is very detailed which I appreciate. I did an inspection on the same house when I purchased the house a few years ago and this report AND service is far superior in every way. I have already referred ReHome to other people in the community. Highly recommend the services of ReHome.

Hired ReHome Inspections to look after the home inspection and water testing for a recently purchased home. Phil was very knowledgeable and thorough as he went through the home. He was able to answer all questions and his pleasant personality made the entire process smooth and painless. I would recommend hiring Phil from ReHome Inspections to anyone looking at purchasing a home in the Annapolis Valley area.

Phil was recommended to us by our realtor as we did not know anybody in Nova Scotia (coming from Ontario). Phil came on very short notice, produced a great report with photos and explanations. On site Phil was very friendly and professional. We would recommend Phil without hesitation. Thank you for the Inspection. : )

The service was quick and of a very high quality. We came in from Calgary and had 1 day to get it all done. They were there on time and done in about 4 hours with the full 48 page report in our hands that evening. Let them prove it to you to.

Treated me like one of the family

★★★★★

I am so glad I hired Phil Schnetzer to do my home inspection. He was very thorough, informative, and customer friendly. He didn't treat me like a client... He treated me like I was one of the family. There was so much I did not know about when it came to a home inspection. But Phil made what could have been an intimidating experience, into a more enjoyable one. I gained new knowledge about the home. And also have a better idea of things to keep looking for in our home, to keep our stay there as stress free and comfortable as possible. On his business card it says: "surprises are for birthdays". And after having seen him in action, I fully believe he stands by that. He had an informative answer for all my questions, and for someone like me with limited knowledge in home upkeep? That's like having a big weight lifted off my shoulders. He also has a very quick response time when it comes to his report. We received his full report (including pictures), the same day the inspection took place. I highly recommend Phil Schnetzer for anyone who is getting a home inspection and wants to come out of it feeling like they were educated by a friend/family member and not feel overwhelmed about it. I am definitely passing the word around about Phil, and if by chance I am in the market for another home inspection... I know to contact Phil Schnetzer of ReHome Inspections. Thank you so much Phil.

My Home Inspection was a pleasure! Phillip is professional, extremely knowledgeable, pleasant and enthusiastic.
