“Get to know the home you’re buying.”
We provide thorough home inspections for buyers who want to know about the house they are buying, and sellers wanting to know the condition of their home. We’re passionate about educating our clients with relevant information by producing a comprehensive inspection report. These reports include photos and clear information about the home. We’ve been providing home inspections to buyers and sellers on Vancouver Island since 2016 and have watched the industry shift and evolve throughout the years. One of the things that has remained the same is that clients need information about the homes they are buying or selling. We’re known for our thorough approach to the inspection process and we are proud of the service we are able to provide our clients.
Baker Street Home Inspection operates out of the Comox Valley on Vancouver Island, and we have a strong knowledge of the climate in our temperate rainforest region. The combination of abundant rainfall and numerous waterfront properties presents unique challenges for homes in our area. We understand the importance of maintaining superior roof and water management systems to protect your structure from water intrusion due to poor drainage. Negligence in either of these areas may seriously compromise the integrity of a home, and Baker Street Home Inspection will inspect your property with this in mind.
“Get to Know the Home You’re Buying”
We believe everyone deserves a thorough understanding of a home prior to buying it. After years working as a steel fabricator/shipfitter and on various building projects including home renovations, owner Mike Baker became aware of the need for honest, outstanding home inspection services on Vancouver Island. He started Baker Street Home Inspection to make sure you “Get to Know the Home You’re Buying”.
