I was very thankful with the thoroughness in Housecheck’s service! Not only did Didier provided an initial check and report of my home, he followed-up with a second visit in the middle of the winter. I felt reassured with the quality of my home and will be sure to request a Housecheck the next time I look at purchasing a property. Thank you Didier!
Thanks again so much for the inspection, the advice, honest opinions and most of all a critical eye to the house. As a buyer it is so easy to get wrapped up into the purchase and the process. I enjoyed going through it all and will always recommend you to everyone I know.

Over the last several years, I had the opportunity to use Housecheck services (Didier) at 3 occasions in Yellowknife; twice (2003 & 2006) as a building inspector during the construction of 2 new houses and once in 2013 for a house inspection during the process of purchasing an existing home. In all cases I was very satisfied with the prompt and detailed service. Didier is detail oriented and picked up on important items that too often go unnoticed. During the construction of our new house(s), he worked closely with the builder and was proactive in pointing out to important details. I would definitely recommend him.
I have used Didier Bourgois and his company Housecheck’s Professional Inspection Services for both the pre-sale of a house that I sold and for the purchase of a house that I had bought. I find Dee’s reports concise yet thorough and easy to follow. Dee has both a construction background as well as having been a building inspector previously with the City. His experience and common sense approach to inspections and maintenance issues have instilled confidence in both the buying and selling process for me and I would recommend his services to anyone who is doing the same.

He is also adept at facilitating conversations with tradespeople, professionals, and bureaucrats in working towards solutions when problems arise.

Étant donné que nous ne connaissons rien en construction, nous n'aurions pas imaginé acheter une maison sans prendre l'avis d'un professionnel. Grâce à l'inspection de Housecheck, nous connaissons l'état de notre maison, ses défauts et ses points forts, les réparations qu'il faudra effectuer, et nous savons à quoi nous attendre pour l'avenir. Didier a rédigé un rapport clair et concis que nous comprenons et sur lequel nous pouvons nous appuyer pour entretenir notre maison.

We didn’t know Didier before he was recommended to me, but looking back now, we’re very pleased that we were given his name. Didier was professional in all his dealings with us and was very prompt at responding to questions. He took the time to discuss his report with us in detail and made us feel much more comfortable about purchasing the house. We were very satisfied with the service Housecheck provided.

All the information you've provided has been, and will continue to be, very helpful. I very much appreciate it and will definitely let you know if I have further questions.....and when I'm ready to buy/sell again!
As a first time potential home purchaser, I really didn't know what I was getting into, especially since it was a very old home. Where do you start to look for problems? Didier was ready for the challenge! He is extremely organized, professional, friendly, and knows what to look for. His confidence and thorough reporting was much valued when it came time to make an offer on the property.
I had a great experience with Housecheck. Didier was incredibly knowledgeable and was honest and trustworthy throughout the inspection process. His assessment was vital to my decision to buy a home and I would recommend his service for anyone else considering to buy property in Yellowknife.
Getting a house inspection done with Housecheck made my house purchase so much simpler. Didier was professional and courteous and was very thorough with his inspection. With Housecheck I knew exactly what issues there were with my potential house, which allowed me to budget for future fixes. I would definitely recommend that if you need a house inspection done, call Housecheck!
In my hunt to purchase a new home, Housecheck conducted inspections on three homes, each of which I had put in an offer. Because of Didier’s knowledge and experience, major deficiencies in the first two homes were brought to my attention. The third home that was inspected passed inspection; I purchased it. The inspection report advised me of what would be required to maintain the home in the coming years. Didier was invaluable in his comments and suggestions. I am highly recommending using this service to ensure all major deficiencies and recommendations are known before sealing the deal.
We hired Didier to inspect our house when we purchased and we were so pleased with his service that we hired him again when we were selling so he could point out any work that needed attention before showing to buyers. His help was instrumental in preparing our home and greatly facilitated the sale as we addressed his recommendations before putting the house on the market. We would hire him again and we highly recommend his services.
