I also work in the new residential construction industry and it's wonderful that Glenn is available to advocate for home owners.
The importance of understanding modern construction and how to get the most from Builders and Warranty programs cannot be overstated.I encourage those needing help to trust Glenn and his team where it counts the most, your home !
Very best regards,
Thanks for your report and your recommendations on other professionals. I very much value and respect your opinion. I would definitely reach out to them all.
As the detail-oriented person that I am, I appreciate your detailed report & expertise more than you may know.
Is it okay to talk with you and ask you a few questions about the report ? Just for my peace-of-mind. What day and time best works for you?
Again thank you for your time. I've learned a lot from you today.
care, courtesy, skill and generous professional expertise - explaining your process each
step of the way.
It makes me smile as a client, being able to see and observe you work, as it mirrors how
I also work, to know how good clients feel, when we both work.
I let you know prior to your inspection that I enjoy a live-work environment to design,
draw and build architectural scale models, it is busy.
You moved freely through my Suite, easily as have trades people and 2 fridge-delivery
movers. Your positive professional attitude, confidence, experience, pride and skill in
your work restored my faith in Home Inspectors.
Thank you for all this. Laura and I really appreciated meeting you and we are happy to have some peace of mind in regards to our concerns after your Condition-Check, though our plans to begin the process of updates and renovations may be delayed at the moment as we might be expecting a visit from the stork.
We are grateful for your expertise & knowledge shared and will reach out again should we have any questions.
Thought you might be interested in the outcome of our claim with the C.R.T., against our Strata. I would say we probably won the claim by comparison, although not everything. Your detailed Report was given the most weight, though, which we are very appreciative!
Thanks for the detailed report; I appreciate your in-depth inspection at the Coquitlam house, yesterday. At least we know, now, what we are really getting ourselves into 🙂
Thank you, Glenn
Thank you very much for this. It was a pleasure working with you. We appreciate you helping us through this exciting home-buying process.
We will certainly give you a ring when we buy our next property. Until then, be well and stay safe!
Perfect Glenn – on the edits to the initial report Draft !!!
You’re doing a great job, thus far, so stay healthy and looking forward to your excellent work on the rest of this work, as we progress through, to fight back against this bully Contractor, going forward.
We just had a home inspection done by him two days ago and he was thorough, and very professional.
We were referred to him by my parents, when Glenn did a home inspection for them - back in 2006...14 YEARS AGO!
That is the amount of experience and knowledge that gave us that extra peace-of-mind knowing, for sure, that we would be given an exceptional home inspection.
He also gave us more understanding of the home we purchased, which was wonderful!
We will surely recommend him to anyone we know, without hesitation.
Glenn handled the inspection very thoroughly and was pleasant to deal with throughout. He answered our questions in a competent and well-thought manner. It was comforting to know we could rely on Glenn's knowledge and expertise. We strongly recommend him to be on your side for any home inspection and related issues.
Thank you very much for all your help. The inspection process was really useful to us, to get a good understanding of the condition of the property and also a good idea on what sort of maintenance and upgrades will be helpful to keep our new home in good condition.
~Adam and Anthe
Happy to offer this Testimonial for you:
I would not hesitate to recommend Duxbury Inspections. Glenn was friendly, reliable and available on short notice. His inspection was comprehensive without being alarmist. I could purchase my home with confidence and peace of mind, after Glenn Duxbury’s thorough inspection.
Thank you again !
Thanks to you for all your help & input.
I have re-read the Form B the Realtor sent. It sure pays to read the fine print. Many more red flags for this building !!
The management company had called a "State of Emergency" regarding those long-overdue repairs. They could not get insurance renewal until some repairs are being done. It appears they have ignored repairs and maintenance for some time. They will go ahead with what needs to be done for insurance purposes, but not a lot of other work that is in that Report you reviewed for us (recommended by the Engineer). Good call Glenn, that place is a Money Pit !!
We will look elsewhere. Thanks again,
We did buy the place there, in Vancouver, officially on Jan. 11, 2019 and are now moved in and are loving life.
You were on-time, respectful and courteous, knowledgeable, certainly worth what we paid and we would definitely not only recommend you to family /friends, but also use you again & again.
Thanks very much for your services, they were very much appreciated.
I've decided to go ahead with the purchase. The Seller has agreed to fix some of those major items you had identified on this 16 year-old House. Thank you very much for all your help !
And both Brandon and I were impressed within 2 minutes of Glenn being there, for the walk-through on my new Condo and will definitely be looking to use his services again when Brandon's own apartment completes next year…
Thank you very much for your assistance throughout, once again. I look forward to retaining your services again in the future, as they were instrumental in bringing this matter to an early resolution.
Yours very truly,
BTM LAWYERS LLP
We did not purchase that property (on the excellent advice of Glenn).
Our address is still the same, meanwhile. We are going to rent temporarily, instead of buying another place, right away.
If we need an excellent Inspector in the future or know someone who does, we will certainly use Glenn, again.
Thanks for all your work and the results. I think you helped us reach high-quality levels on this cedar roof-restoration project. I think we are done with roofing inspections for now; if some new issues show up we will contact you.
We will keep your name on our short list and contact you again whenever needs arise for other projects.
Thank you for the very thorough job of that house, yesterday. We really appreciate your knowledge and recommendations.
I am mortified to say that it just dawned on me that I never sent any response when you sent over your expert report on this personal injury case for our Client, before Christmas. Please accept my sincere apologies, as well as my Thanks – your expert report is excellent and it will be extremely helpful.
I will follow up with a more formal request, but I was hoping you could make yourself available to be a witness at the trial of this matter, later this year.
Once again, thank you so much for your assistance. I trust all is well with you and hopefully we’ll talk soon.
Glenn was patient as he explained or showed me a few concerns. He presented the facts, not only during the inspection, but with also his detailed report. He inspected the Condo itself as well as the building as a whole - for any big upcoming projects we may need to prepare for. We were able to make an informed decision about the biggest purchase of our lives, confidently. Glenn was courteous, professional and thorough. I would recommend Duxbury & Associates to my friends and family in a heartbeat. We now can't wait to move into our new home !
Thanks again for doing such a thorough inspection on my “future home” yesterday !
I have decided to go ahead and purchase that townhouse, after all. Thanks again for your fantastic inspection. I did manage to get the price down - due to your recommendations concerning repairs needed. I would really appreciate the contacts you mentioned, as well.
Much appreciated !
My client and I appreciate your swift response to our legal issue and your professionalism. Your report helped us assess the evidence and prepare for trial and assisted in achieving a settlement. Thank you again for your hard work and attention-to-detail.
Thank you as always; a great service you provide!
Thank you again for the great service you provided us. It's really given us the confidence we needed to buy this house.
As discussed, I'm hoping you can forward me the contact info for that general contractor you mentioned who could do the bathroom repair work needed, please.
Glenn is professional, knowledgeable, and reliable. He is always looking out for the best interests of his clients. I have been very happy with his services over the years. He always walks you through the highlights of his inspection and explains all the details very thoroughly.
If you have any questions, Glenn is keen to provide you with the answers. I strongly recommend Glenn and Duxbury & Associates to my family and friends.
Thank you for the very thorough inspection today. I will certainly recommend you next time I hear of somebody planning to buy.
Take care and have a great weekend,
Thank you so much for your time and the detailed feedback on that Condo, this AM.
Here is the Depreciation Report for your review /reference, if you don’t mind...
Thanks again for all the awesome work today, on that Condo.
Very much appreciate all your expertise, insight and recommendations.
Thanks also for that Painter reference !
John said it was a real pleasure to meet you and to get to know you today. Thank you for such a thorough inspection service. We will certainly pass the word out to our friends, neighbours and co-workers about your expertise.
We have come to trust you and would trust your recommendations, as well. You sure know the industry well and we respect you for that.
Once again thank you very much for your great service today.
Thank you very much, again & we will definitely recommend you to others.
The first occasion was when we wanted to buy a house and Glenn's report and honest discussion helped us to walk away from the house - even though we were keen to buy this home.
The second instance was when we wanted to buy a 3 year-old house and again Glenn's report and honest discussion helped us to see some of the defects which we were able to ask the owner to correct.
The third occasion was when we asked Glenn to come with us for subject-removal after the inspection. Once again we found Glenn's knowledge and discussion with us and the builder helped us to move forward to buy this new home in near-perfect condition (defect-free).
We would highly recommend Glenn Duxbury's company & services to anyone who wants an honest and correct home inspection report from a Building Inspector who will work diligently for you.
I believe he is a professional you can trust ! Glenn really cares about you & your family... it's not all about getting paid with him... he REALLY CARES !
I highly recommend Glenn Duxbury for your 1st or next Home Inspection.
In other words, you gave us a better picture of what we've really would be getting ourselves into. Thank you again and I will be needing your help again soon, so keep in touch, my friend.
You are worth every penny and more than you charge…
Glenn was very helpful in pointing out serious issues we have since attended to…
We are considering making an offer on this address & wondering if you see any red flags that you think you might warn us about ?
Of course if our offer is accepted, it will be conditional to your very critical inspection, once again.
Thank you so much,

We have sent your contact details to 2 people so far, including a Realtor we know and another friend who is looking to purchase a home in our area.
You inspection was very professional, thorough and has empowered me to make the right decision for myself. I don't think I will ever look at a Condo parking garage the same way again.
Do you remember we did the inspection together in Vancouver in August ? We finally didn't proceed with purchasing that house. Thanks again very much for your great and professional service.
I am going to ask for your help again for another home inspection…
I never seem to win anything so I'm so excited that I won this prize-draw for your Home Safety-Check! Thanks again.
And thanks for the recommendations for the electrician and the general contractor also!
Depreciation report is attached if you need it...
Thanks again for the inspection today. I was very impressed.
I wanted to say thank you for all the time and effort you put into your inspection for us. It has helped me see everything much clearer as to the current state of the property we’re thinking of buying.
He was able to catch things early like the beginning of mold in the attic, which would definitely save us huge money in the long haul because we are able to address it early on.
Very detail oriented (like checking fire detectors and appliances). Walks you through the highlights of his inspection and explains very well. Was very approachable and could ask him any questions at all.
He was timely and was early for the inspection to look around the strata complex. Was available at short notice, too. Glad to have found him and would recommend him to my friends and family.
Thank you very much for your inspection today, we were very impressed with your attention to detail.
We will look over your report later tonight and will let you know if we have any questions.
In an industry with so many options for home inspectors, I am very happy that I know Glenn which saves me time in looking for a home inspector if my clients ask for my recommendations. I can suggest they contact Glenn, with no reservations at all.
After the first site visit to our new home being built, I was glad I hired Glenn because he was indeed very professional and knowledgeable. He found a number of detail defects in the way my Siding Contractor installed the Hardie Board and even suggested ways to correct them. Glenn took his time with every inspection, answered all my questions precisely and always made me feel that I received more than my money's worth.
What really impressed me was Glenn's total attention to all details, big and small. He climbed up to the roof to check the roofer's workmanship. He checked the progress of the Hardie siding /window installation thoroughly, every time and even used a telescope to check the siding contractor's workmanship all the way to the top, from my walkout basement (three stories). I am confident that my home's building envelope is the best possible. Thanks Glenn, you are a credit to your profession.
Rate this company: 5/5
My father and I were very impressed by your professionalism and the information provided.
Through the inspection, he was able to identify a variety of issues that I was thankful to know about. The fact I was invited and encouraged to be present during the inspection was the icing on the cake for me. It is much easier to understand some of the investigative results when you are right there. I would highly recommend Glenn Duxbury and his company.
After initial review of the Report, all owners were especially appreciative of the fact that Glenn was able to personally meet with us to present and explain the highlights of his report with an emphasis on areas that need immediate attention and offered strategic planning scenarios for our future.
Thanks again for the great job and hope to see you for our report renewal in 3 years.
Thank you again for the very thorough report. Have a good day!
I recommend Glenn and his team 100%, especially if you are thinking of purchasing a new home for the first time.
As first homebuyers, we were very nervous, embarking on the largest financial decision & commitment of our lives, not to mention how much of a stressful process it can be.
The content and professionalism of the inspection, not only gave us peace of mind, but Glenn also discovered a gas leak (which was promptly dealt with thanks to the inspection). The Seller had the leak repaired and we are now eagerly anticipating moving into our first home.
Glenn certainly made a stressful time easier to deal with and now armed with the information from your inspection, we have confidence that our decision to purchase this home is the right one.
Thanks Glenn, we'll certainly recommend your services.
Thanks so much & we look forward to learning lots more at our next purchase !
After careful consideration, we've decided not to pursue the house after all. It would be too much work for me to take on…
Thanks again for your excellent inspection and advice.
You were definitely very thorough. We will definitely refer you in the future to anyone we know who is buying!
Thanks so much for all your help, Glenn, too - it nice to have someone involved who only has our best interests in mind!
We really appreciated your insights and comments.
I have some good friends – currently buying /looking at purchasing a home and I will be forwarding your name and contact info onto them for an Inspection…
I remain a "fish out of water" - struggling to survive this difficult situation...
I hope your day went well & you also got to enjoy some of this wonderful weather...SUNSHINE !
Many Thanks for your continued interest, support & caring, Glenn.
I really appreciate this valuable assistance and guidance !
Once again, it has been a pleasure working with you. I am sure our paths will cross again.
I was wondering if you could forward the contact info. for a trustworthy general contractor, plumber and /or electrician ?
Many thanks, again.
Not sure if you remember me but you helped us to inspect a townhouse about 3 years ago and thankfully, with your guidance, we did not buy that Unit due to all the problems you spotted within just 20 minutes.
We found you trustworthy, very honest and we value your opinions.
Thank you, Glenn!
Glenn has displayed unparalleled integrity and taken great care, with every client I have sent his way.
I wouldn't hesitate to retain his services for your next home inspection, or even a pre-listing consultation!
We have decided not to go ahead with it, after all...
We will surely recommend you to our friends.
I would definitely recommend Glenn and should a future need arise, I will use his services again.
PS - I bought that and negotiated a further $25K reduction based on all the issues you brought to light…
After careful consideration, we've decided not to pursue the house after all. It would be too much work for me to take on…
Thanks again for your excellent inspection and advice.
Rob, my friend that recommended you was right, you are very, very thorough, which is great!
I would highly recommend Glenn. He is everything you want in a home inspector: thorough, detail-oriented and very professional.
All the best
We value Glenn’s professional and detailed approach to inspections – he doesn’t miss a thing! We also appreciate the time he takes to review and explain the inspection findings. I highly recommend Glenn Duxbury & Associates-Building Inspection and Consulting for any home inspections you may require.
Thank you again for the thorough inspection and report! Would you please pass along the contractor info we’ll need ? You have our trust for the recommendations.
We'll be calling you soon for another inspection 🙂
Thank you again for your services, Glenn & take care…
You made it easy to walk away and you saved the day. We repeat - "Thank You, Glenn! We will be happy to give others your phone number."
You identified a number of issues and your suggestions for remediation were most helpful (we) especially appreciated the extra time you took in explaining the details – you clearly have much experience in this field.
I will not hesitate to refer people your way if they require an Inspection.
They came down $______, eventually!
We will take possession @ month-end…
Thanks once again; it’s so nice to have someone to trust!
Just dropping a line to thank you so very much for your thorough inspection.
I have already told my girlfriend, who is doing extensive renovations, about you. I almost think it would be worth it for people to budget in a few hours of your time through different stages of reno's and building - just to have someone protecting their interests. Its obvious many contractors are not doing that.
Top qualities: Expert , On Time , High Integrity
Thanks again, Glenn!
I appreciate your professional inspection and I know Adrian and Chaline are much more secure in the knowledge they're making a sound investment in their purchase.
If you are planning to buy a property (house, apartment, condo, etc.), consider calling Glenn Duxbury; it’s worth every dollar…
Thank you for your assistance. As a single, first time home buyer with a sizeable financial outlay before me and little experience to draw on, my anxiety level was elevated to say the least. This was greatly reduced by your customer relation skills, accommodation with scheduling and time you made available.
Your experience and knowledge became increasingly evident as the unit and building inspection proceeded on June 6th. Your attention to detail with explanations and answers to my questions made this apparent. The information gathered independently identified a number of items in the condo that needed attention, which I had overlooked in my preceding personal inspection of the premises. Repairs are in progress which have helped me avoid unnecessary expense. I should add that the satisfaction of being in a reliable and informed position has greatly enhanced my confidence in my ability to move forward with my decisions.
My experience has been so positive and I have no hesitation at all if you wish to pass on my recommendation for your services. Again, your help has been so very much appreciated.
We have already recommended your services to a number of our friends who are looking to purchase a place!
Unfortunately, as a result of what all we had read and felt from the Council Minutes, on top of all the information from you, that both corroborated and added to the existing "concern list" and a growing feeling of stress with regards to how they run the Strata Corporation...
I was sitting with our Agent - trying to draw up the final details of our offer to clear all subjects based on them accepting a price adjustment - we realized that the time and stress of “working with the strata for the next 5 to 10 years, trying to convince people to be more proactive and deal with things properly”, just wasn't worth it even if they dropped the price a bit ! So, in the end, we agreed to walk away...
Thanks, I think you helped save us a whole ton of stress,
Thank you for your inspection at _______ 20th Avenue, Surrey.
That house has lots of unexpected problems. We have decided not to purchase that property…
My wife was impressed by your knowledge and appreciated your advice.
Thank you again!
Glenn has now done 3 home inspections for us and we were extremely impressed by his level of knowledge, his diligence and the fact that he seems genuinely concerned with our welfare and well-being and wants to ensure we find a good home to live in.
We would definitely recommend you to friends (“10”, again).
Because Glenn Duxbury & Associates are just plain excellent: extremely knowledgeable, so thorough in their inspections, reliable and nice guys too. They seem to really care about their job and their clients and realize a person's search for a home is important to them, so it's important to Glenn and his company, too.
Knowledge, skill, care, dedication…
We really couldn't think of anything you need to improve on. You are doing a great job and we wish all businesses were so trustworthy and competent.
If we know anyone requiring a house inspection done, we will definitely recommend that they contact you!
The comprehensive report was helpful to us in making our decision to purchase our home. We will definitely use Glenn Duxbury & Associates again and will recommend them to everyone.
Your regular reports like this, plus ongoing site meetings once a month keep us up to speed on everything that is being done and allows us to ask questions, make informed choices and ensure poor work does not get done behind our backs...
* Think I will also try to sell in Spring (FYI)…
Thank you for your services, Glenn & take care.
Based on his findings, we decided not to go ahead with the purchase - and consider the inspection fee money well spent for the information and education we received. Thanks Glenn !
We'll be calling you soon for another inspection 🙂
I thank-you again for your thorough job and I look forward to doing business with you again.
In an industry with so many options for home inspectors, I am very happy that I know Glenn which saves me time in looking for a home inspector if my clients ask for my recommendations. I can suggest they contact Glenn with no reservations at all.
Lisa and I would like to thank you for services for 519 Lehman Place in Port Moody. We are moving ahead with the place and take possession next month.
Once again thank you for your services; we are very pleased with your knowledge and professionalism.
Thank you for a hell of a job today in Vancouver… was very impressed. Have used 4 other inspectors for other purchases and you are, by far, head & shoulders above all the others…
Have an excellent weekend. Take care
If we, or anyone we know, ever need a "Building Inspector" or a good Consultant, we will know who to contact, now.
Thank you so much for all your help, suggestions and input on this mess we’re in...
My wife Michelle and I recently hired you for a home inspection of a townhouse we were interested in purchasing (Boundary Park in Surrey).
We were very pleased with the detailed written report and observations that you provided throughout the inspection, so we would like to work with you again.
We are interested in having you do an inspection for us on yet another nearby town home in Surrey this week…
