What People Say

Here are some of the reviews received lately and they speak the truth about our service. 

Professional service provided both in the filed and on the telephone. Rapid responses and report received well within 24 hours of inspection. We have received lower quotations from other inspectors, but the skill and service received was worth every penny. 

Darryl Bester

Contacted Andre on 08/07/2020 to ask for an inspection quotation at 09:15. The inspection was done the same day, and received the report later that evening. VERY Fast, VERY Reliable and Extremely Professional.

The house that I wanted to buy had some concerns. I contacted Property Defect Detectives, they came out, examined the Property, and educated us about the Concers of Cracks observed. We then went ahead and bought our dream house. Thank you for the good Service. I will recommend you to  everyone buying a house.
