Meet Mike Baker
Baker Street Home Inspection of Cumberland, BC was founded by owner/inspector Mike Baker. Before becoming a licensed home inspector, Mike worked in shipyards in Vancouver and Victoria as a steel fabricator and shipfitter. He was an apprentice, journeyman, then chargehand, and was responsible for repairing and refitting everything from large vessels to ferries to navy frigates. During this time, Mike also helped friends and family with home renovations and building projects. Both of these backgrounds share common traits that make for an excellent Home Inspector: strong attention to detail and superior communication skills with a variety of people.
Mike’s an avid outdoor adventurer, and you can often find him mountain biking, surfing, skiing, swimming, hiking, fishing, canoeing and camping around Vancouver Island with friends and family.
Mike became a licensed Home Inspector after having a career-changing experience when he made an offer on a new home. His home inspection revealed significant issues with the property he intended to buy, and thanks to his home inspector he was able to make an informed decision and back out before it was too late. Mike recognized the services of a home inspector were invaluable, and he knew he had the skills to complete the training and be successful with his inspection business on Vancouver Island.
His extensive training along with his previous work experience give Mike a unique edge in how he conducts home inspections. Mike’s straightforward approach strictly follows official Home Inspection guidelines, thus guaranteeing everything is properly addressed at each home inspection. Read more about HIABC standards here.
Mike values the home inspection process and is always honest with his clients by providing relevant and important information to the homebuyer.

Our Client’s Experience
Mike from Baker Street Home Inspections was a huge help in our decision to buy our new home. He was very knowledgeable and confident as he went over everything with us and I felt assured he did a very thorough job.
I would definitely recommend him to anyone wanting a detailed inspection of a home they are looking to purchase. Thanks again!The McFauls
