You made our home hunting go so much more smoothly with your willingness to work with our tight schedule, and with your prompt arrival and efficient scrutiny of the house. You gave a thorough inspection and answered all of our questions (of which there were many). The full report arrived quickly and you offered assistance in the future. You work with integrity and excellence! Thank you.

Timely, thorough, professional, knowledgeable and freely instructive on any questions. Excellent summary and report provided. Well worth the fee. He saved me much money and headache.

Prompt, professional, honest and approachable. A thorough inspection and report, giving you all the information and suggestions needed. We were beyond impressed with Ryan and his work. Look no further for your home inspector, you've found him!!
— Brian & Sharleen
I was able to accompany Ryan on the house inspection. He explained when he found a problem, what it was and why it should or should not concern me, if it was fixable, and if that would be costly or not. I was very impressed by his manner, kindness, and professionalism.

I've been a real estate agent for over thirty years in another market place. By chance, I needed a home inspector in London for a client. I'm used to some very good, well-respected home inspectors. After some careful online research we chose Ryan, and what great choice. He provided one of the most thorough home inspections I've ever been on – and I've been on a lot of them. He's very open to questions, and presents information in a clear and understandable language. He's the kind of guy you want as a next-door neighbour for advice, as his understanding of systems and how houses work is unbeatable. He provides practical options to issues, and has a well-paced and patient manner, followed up by a report. I recommend Ryan without reservation.— AH, Toronto
My experience with Ryan was excellent. His communications were responsive and clear. His availability was perfect, and his quick turnaround of the report was remarkable. He must have a very capable team to assist him in delivering an overall excellent product! Ryan demonstrated a strong knowledge of potential home maintenance issues, and was very clear about what he could not comment on. Both the current homeowner and the real estate agent were present for the inspection, and Ryan dealt with them with tact and diplomacy, while clearly identifying issues of concern. Dealing with Ryan was a bright spot in an otherwise stressful situation!— Phil Moddle
Ryan completed two separate and thorough home inspections for our family. His first inspection likely saved us from significant financial distress! His attention to detail and ability to prioritize issues were excellent. He analyzed the interior and exterior of the home, and provided insight and advice throughout his inspections. Ryan also made himself available for follow-up contact, and provided significant clarification of any issues that arose. I would highly recommend his services as he is friendly, personable and highly skilled in his trade.

Ryan is a strong advocate and his hard work was greatly appreciated!
We wish to take this opportunity to recommend the home inspection services of Ryan Bowering. We liked Ryan's website, and chose him because of his detailed check list and prompt response to our emails.
On the day of inspection, Ryan was on-site and underway before we even arrived. He spent the entire afternoon (over 4 hours) with us examining the home from top to bottom. He was more than willing to explain problems in detail, as well as solutions, as we went along. The attic and crawlspace were physically explored and documented in both photo and written report. Later that evening, he met with us again for more than an hour to review our report in detail.— Bob and Sue Manester
We found Ryan to be cheerful, helpful, patient with questions, and forthcoming with practical solutions and options. We would definitely recommend him to anyone as a home inspector.
I am a Realtor in the Toronto area, and I would like to share a positive experience I recently had. My client was wishing to relocate in the Chatham/Wallaceburg area, so the home search began. We found a home, and I always insist on a home inspection. Not knowing of home inspectors in the area, I was being particular, as this is a serious part of any real estate transaction. Ryan Bowering from Home Explore Inspections Inc. was recommended to me. With a bit of hesitation, we retained his services. I was unable to attend the inspection. However, we received a very detailed and thorough report, more than I often see by inspectors in the Toronto area. This report was followed by a phone call from Ryan, making certain we understood every item in the report. Along with this, he gave his opinion regarding which items needed to be prioritized. My client was able to make a decision, based on the clarity of the report, so she could counter with confidence. The deal fell through, so the search continued.

Another home – another offer with the home inspection condition. Another deal fell through, due to the extensive renovations that would be required on the house. My client is independent, but with no family support close by, she needed a home that would be more move-in ready. Ryan charged only a minimal fee for his fuel and time. Regrouping over coffee, I saw that a home had just been listed in a familiar area. Ryan, who had been on his way home, waited patiently at the side of the road for us to secure permission. A call to the listing agent obtained permission to do a pre-offer inspection right away. He turned around, and with the same enthusiasm he had from the beginning, came to my client’s potential new home. We watched, listened, and learned from Ryan as he meticulously inspected the home. After a very long day, Ryan still went home and prepared a detailed report. This allowed my client to put in a fair offer with confidence.
I am happy to say that my client purchased this house, moved in, and is very happy with her new home – but also with Ryan’s expertise. Each inspection was at a cost, but she says it was money well spent.
As a Realtor, I was very pleased with the professionalism during each and every transaction. The detail and time spent on each inspection displayed that Ryan enjoys his occupation – dust bunnies, spiders, snakes, and other surprises in the crawlspace included! Would I recommend Home Explore Inspections Inc.? Without a doubt! The education and peace of mind are definitely worth it. Buying a home without a home inspection is like buying a car without insurance – plus Ryan gives you the extras you weren't expecting.

We had Home Explore do our first ever home inspection. Everything was so well done. As we lived so far away (Northern Ontario), Ryan and our Realtor acted as our eyes. We had been staying at a motel in London for over a month and Ryan came to the motel and showed us the report. My wife and I were able to hire a contractor and know exactly just what was needed to be done. When something was completed, we could check it off the list. The photos were awesome and very helpful. Thank you Ryan for everything and for being so good at what you do!
— Brian Fillmore
Ryan has done a couple inspections for me on purchases I made for business acquisitions. I am very busy and do not have time to go over everything myself. I just simply call Ryan and I know I can trust exactly what he says.
— Trevor Rosborough, Masterpiece Financial
I had a very pleasant experience with Ryan. What I really liked was how he walked me through each issue with the house, told me how it happened, and what could be done to fix or prevent future issues. Ryan was very thorough in the inspection and his attention to detail was impeccable. I ended up buying my first property because of him. Thanks Ryan!
— Mike Delaney
I had never had the need for a home inspection before purchasing my twelve year old condominium two years ago. Being alone, I really appreciated Ryan for his sincerity and discretion regarding my situation. He accommodated my time restrictions, regulated by my shiftwork. He was honest and direct in the problems I would potentially face and even recommended contacts for me to rectify them. I am so thankful that I utilized his expertise and would not hesitate to do this again. With sincere gratitude...
— Julie B
We had a great experience with Ryan. He was very thorough and found things we would never have thought to look for. We were impressed with his work ethic, honesty, and the care he showed while conducting his work. He also took the time to walk us through everything he found, while explaining the potential risks and repairs that may need to be done.— Dan and Colleen Hyland
In 2011 the government had an energy conservation program for energy upgrades for homeowners. To qualify, we had to have an energy audit completed on our home. For this audit we procured the services of Home Explore Inspections Inc. Ryan Bowering conducted a most thorough and meticulous audit, which we're sure resulted in a refund beyond our expectation! Ryan was polite, pleasant, and has an excellent work ethic. We were very pleased! Thank you Ryan, for such fine work.— Herman & Nellie Vandermeyden
I am happy as Ryan was quick to do the initial and final energy audits, and helped me to get over $5,000.00 for the upgrades I completed in my home (geo thermal unit and basement insulation). He was very professional, and I did not have to chase him to get it done. I would recommend him to anyone - he did a great job! Thanks.— Laurie Montag
Ryan was extremely helpful, but yet not afraid to tell you the straight-up truth. Thank you for your professional work and great attitude.— Jamie Hiscox
Ryan provided us with valuable knowledge and experience during the purchase of our first home. As he completed the inspection, he took the time to explain all identified issues; including prioritizing what was an immediate issue, versus potentially long term. The detail he offered, as well as the insight on a variety of options to resolve the issues, was an invaluable experience to us. Ryan provided a very detailed inspection report, along with countless photos within hours of completing the inspection. We went into the purchase of the home prepared, knowing exactly what our plan needs to be to resolve concerns.— Lyle & Angie
I have bought and sold several homes over the past few years and thus have used several home inspectors. I found Ryan to be very efficient, thorough and knowledgeable when it comes to home inspections. Very good documentation and a wealth of good information were all delivered in a very timely and professional manner. I would not hesitate to use Ryan’s services in the future!!— K & P Van Loy
Ryan was very thorough and patient explaining things that are not my areas of expertise. There were not many issues with our new home, but I appreciated the little things Ryan pointed out. It was great to get the outside perspective of someone who is unbiased. I will definitely be seeking Ryan’s help with any future purchases.— Jesse O’Shea
Ryan of Home Explore Inspections was both thorough and professional when he did our home inspection. His attention to detail was very reassuring. He followed up with a detailed report, covering everything, and was available afterwards for any questions we had.— Jerry B.
Ryan offers a truly professional service from promptly scheduling our request for inspection, to respectfully treating the homeowners and their property and finally, providing clear explanations of his detailed findings. He truly points out things that the common eye of the excited homebuyer could miss.— Brian & Lori Z.
I would strongly recommend having Ryan Bowering as your home inspector, as he is very thorough with his inspection and explanations. He also has a great personality.— Alma B.
Ryan was excellent to work with. He is very knowledgeable and extremely thorough in his inspection. Given the importance of a home inspection, it is critical you pick the right inspector. I would highly recommend Ryan.— Gordon & Kelsey
My family and I needed a professional home inspection on short notice and Ryan delivered. We really appreciated his patience and expertise in answering our questions during the inspection, as well as the timely and detailed report afterward.— Siu Y.
We were very impressed with the attention to detail and thorough nature of Ryan's inspection. His knowledge and ability left us feeling confident that the inspection had turned up anything worth worrying about in our new home!— Adam M. and Narda R.
I was extremely impressed with Ryan’s customer service and extensive knowledge. He did a thorough job and answered all of my questions. I have used four other home inspectors in the past and found his service superior to all of them. The home inspection report he provided was clear and concise. Would definitely recommend.— N. Page
