With over 1700 inspections completed in the Greater Moncton area, hear what some of our customers have to say about the service that they’d received when we’ve inspected their home.
Cottage to castles professional and prompt work was exceptional. We needed an inspection with very little notice and it was done in full detail in plenty of time for us by Yves, moving into an old home with lots of fixes needed we couldn’t be happier to have worked with cottage to castle to receive an incredibly detailed document of every last corner of the house, we’ve continued to reference the works of cottage to castle to conduct Reno’s and fix ups.
Thank you Yves for a great experience and insight into the inspection process. We learned alot today, and feel happy we took decision to get our new home inspection through cottage to castle!
Only have good things to say about the inspection that Mike provided us from Cottage to Castle Inspection Services.
Service was great, cost was competitive, Mike was very friendly, very knowledgeable, he was very thorough,
We would recommend your company to others who are going to buy a home.
Thank you again
A very thorough inspection was received by us via email, with pictures and comments on areas of concern or that needed further investigation. We did buy the property and because of your inspection, there were no surprises waiting for us after we moved in and knowing that no house is perfect, we were well prepared after moving in to deal with anything of importance!
My husband and I would highly recommend your company to others!
Service was great. An appointment was made quickly and arrangements made through the realtors so it did not add to our already long to do list. Doug was very informative, patient and calm. We went through the 70+ page report comprehensively, pointing out all the little things to upgrade and notice as well as determine hierarchy of most to least important. I feel like I know the house I bought before moving in and ready to make upgrades on a set timeline. 100% recommend Cottage to Castle.
I just wanted to thank you for your great service.
I would highly recommend your company to everyone!
Doug recently inspected my future home and I couldn’t have been happier with his thorough report. He was very knowledgeable and was able to answer all of my questions. He took his time and didn’t rush me through it.
Doug made my first home-buying experience much less stressful
Very pleased with the home inspection and would not hesitate recommending you and your team to anyone
Thanks very much
When we decided, a month ago, to list our 70-year-old craftsman style home for sale, we thought it would be helpful to have a home inspection done by Cottage to Castle, just to avoid any surprises with out listing. Jeff provided us with a 76-page report on our home, full of photos and explanations, complete with a summary, highlighting areas of concern. Jeff made the time to meet with us and fully explain answers to our questions. He was reassuring and patient, professional and efficient. We completed the minor repairs needed for our home and were able, because of the knowledge provided in the report, to include in our property disclosure to the buyers any potential areas of concern. Because the buyers were so impressed with the thoroughness of Cottage to Castle’s work, they did not feel the need themselves to do another home inspection. The result: Our house listed and sold in less than a month. Thank you, Jeff, Jeannette and Cottage to Castle. You made our downsizing experience so smooth and easy, and because of your excellent report, the house sale went through in 23 days. Can’t ask for any better service than that!
Thanks for the great service!
Relocating to a new city and trying to find a healthy and comfortable home can be stressful for most but for someone, like me, who has numerous allergies and sensitivities, it can be quite daunting. Our wonderful Real Estate agent recommended Jeff LeBlanc, at Cottage to Castle Home Inspections, and we have used his expertise on two separate properties before purchasing our current home.
From the first phone call Jeff was pleasant and efficient and adapted his schedule to accommodate our tight deadline. After doing his Inspection of the home ( which I believe was 2 1/2 to 3 hours in each case) we met with Jeff to do a “walk-through” where he pointed out areas of concern and made recommendations on items of priority. Jeff’s thoroughness and expertise was impressive and we felt secure in the knowledge that he treated every inspection as though it were for his own family.
We then received a detailed 70+ page report with clear photos and details of each item of concern. There was also a great Summary at the end of the report which highlighted areas of concern in red. The reports themselves were very clearly detailed, concise and extremely helpful.
Jeff also took time to follow up with us to see if we had any questions or if there was anything else he could do to help in our decision-making process.
He was thorough going through the entire house top to bottom and we were happy to know exactly what our home offered and what needed to be addressed. Buying a house especially for the first time can be overwhelming but with Cottage to Castle Home Inspections it made it easier and we knew we were in good hands!
the phone with me and explain all the things I had questions about. I may have his inspection report framed, and am certainly planning to use it as a checklist of things to look out for in the future. Can’t recommend him highly enough!
It was my first experience using the services of inspectors for the purchase of a home. I was very pleased with your service, professionalism and attention to every detail. I have learned a lot from this experience and would recommend to anyone purchasing a new home that they use your service. I know, I will for any new purchases.
We found you (Doug) and the entire team at Cottage to Castle very friendly, patient, and knowledgeable. We appreciated the extra effort of you walking us through your findings with detailed photos and dialogue to ensure we were well informed on what you found, seeing as we could not physically be there. The e-binder is also very helpful, as we can track important information about the house, what we need to do and what we’ve done.
I wanted to take a minute to say “Congratulations!”. Since your beginnings in 2014 I find that you pretty much revamped the field of home inspections in this area. The way you are organized, your responsiveness, your competence and diligence is amazing and has helped many of my (our) buyers and sellers. Always prompt, always thorough and knowledgeable on the subject matter. … And on top you are a great team and fun to deal with.
I will certainly recommend your services to friends and family in the future.
The following is a testimonial for the inspections that were completed at 2 properties in Moncton, N.B.. My Real Estate Agent provided me with a company called Cottage to Castle (And I am very glad he did) to perform inspections on two properties that we were looking to purchase.and we were lucky to be assigned Paul Dancause as our inspector on both occasions. I was blown away on how thorough, professional, knowledgeable Paul was. He completed both inspections in a very timely manner and issued to us a complete inspection report with accompanying pictures and summary report of all the repairs that needed to be done. He took his time to explain any questions that we had in regards to those repairs. The reason two different inspections had to be done was because there were too many repairs on the first property (Like I said he missed nothing).
In summary, it was a complete pleasure dealing with Cottage to Castle and I would highly recommend them to any of my friends or business associates. They are the best!
Thanks for everything,
Thanks a lot Paul was great to deal with. Very good at his job. And very helpful.
I know sometimes inspectors get growled at. Lol. Just wanted to tell you that the 2 gentlemen that did 2 for me in the past week were gentlemen and acted in a professional manner. Thanks!
Thanks so much Doug,
I was more than impressed with the quality and the detailed quantity of the report that you provided us today, it will be very helpful in our effort to close our home deal. I am most pleased with the very apparent level of expertise you exhibited on a number of subject matters, there wasn’t a question I had for you that you weren’t able to answer. As well, you were able to satisfy my concerns with each of the big ticket items I had pointed out…..your professionalism was second to none.
Please feel free to use these comments as you wish and I would be more than happy to provide a reference any time that you may need one.
Take care, I will be telling others of your work!
Great service, as a Realtor I 100% recommend Cottage to Castle! My clients and I both love the thorough inspection reports. Keep up the great work!
Thanks & Merry Christmas!
John and I would like to thank you very much for your excellent service. We were extremely pleased with your detailed inspection and with your report. Please use us as a reference anytime at all. It was a pleasure to deal with you and your company and we have bought the house!
We will be moving in October 31st and hope that we can get together sometime in the near future to sit and chat and get to know each other better.
As you know, I am buying this property blindly and relying solely on the eyes of friends and family. Thanks to you I am much more at ease in my decision making. You have my support!
Cheers and keep up the great work!
Thank you so very much for inspecting our soon to be home!!! I truly appreciate it!! And you may use my name on your testimonial, I thought you were very easy to understand, very thorough in checking everything needed and more, and I really appreciated your friendly and knowledgable demeanor, and that you used layman terms to help me understand some of the items you were talking about.I would recommend you with kind words to anyone looking for some piece of mind in their house decison.
Thank you very much to your hard work and support to inspect the house.
Once again, thank you very much and happy new year.
Thank you for the very thorough house inspection. We found it very helpful and interesting.
Je souhaitais prendre quelques minutes pour te remercier pour ton excellent service, tel que mentionné étant de Montréal je t’ai choisis parmi les quelques noms suggérés par mon agent d’immeuble parce que Penny m’a mentionné que tu avais été agent d’immeuble avant de faire des inspections. Le simple fait que tu es cette double expérience nous rassurait beaucoup ma femme et moi, car tu sais nous devions avoir une personne de confiance étant donné que nous ne sommes pas sur place.
Ton rapport, est simplement excellent, très détaillé avec plusieurs photos, et comme une image vaut milles mots il nous a été très facile de comprendre ton rapport. De plus le fait que tu es pris le temps nécessaire de bien nous l’expliquer lors de notre rencontre ne fait que renforcer notre sélection.
Jeff, ma femme Jocelyne et moi te remerçions encore une fois, et si jamais tu as besoin de références, n’hésites surtout pas à mettre nom sur ta liste !
When I recently bought my 8th house, in Moncton, I was very surprised when my Real Estate agent said the inspection would take 3 to 4 hours, and the report would be over 100 pages. She wasn’t kidding! This was by far the most thorough, complete house inspection I have ever seen. Several things were pointed out that resulted in the former owners fixing them, to complete the sale. I have absolutely no hesitation in highly recommending Cottage to Castle home inspection. It was worth every penny!
Doug was not only extremely thorough, he went through the house with us room by room and explained in detail the operating functions of each feature. He also gave us advice as to how to keep everything in good working order in the future. He took clear photos and wrote detailed descriptions, all of which was explained to us first in person then sent to us as a PDF file for future reference.
Based on Doug’s inspection, we felt confident proceeding with the purchase. We would highly recommend Cottage to Castle to anyone looking to hire a top-notch, honest and thorough home inspector.
Recently, I was fortunate to have Jeff LeBlanc perform a thorough inspection of a potential property purchase in Moncton. Jeff was extremely friendly, helpful, honest, detail oriented and generous with his time in order to provide clear explanations and advice, noting defects and deficiencies in the buildings structure, systems and components, all with supporting photos.
Understanding the condition of the perspective property was essential in making the decision and Jeff had the ability to make it feel as if our file was more than just a number; he is a true professional!
Thank you Cottage to Castle Home Inspection Services for the peace of mind you provided.
Best single item we did for home buy was contacting Cottage to Castle. Doug & team member so prompt, co-operative,thorough & professional. Their personable styles made us feel that we mattered & weren’t being rushed. Love their format, review with us, online forms, final Inspection documents & their invite to contact the Team any time we have an issue which they can help with or recommend reputable trades people. Our 6th home buy over many yrs. Happy to say this experience – best ever in home purchase process. Five Star recommendation!! Thanks so much Doug & Team!
Yes the house inspection does seem like a long time ago. We are settling in and making this our home. We were so pleased with your service that we will definitely be recommending you to others and reach out to you if we have any questions.
Hope you have a wonderful summer!
Doug was very thorough in his review. I have been very pleased with his professionalism and respect with which he dealt with me. The final report was really well constructed and thoroughly explained to me and any defects and recommendations well explained.
I would not hesitate to recommend Doug to anyone.
Please let Doug know how pleased I was with his service.
I just wanted to say that I am very impressed with your work and your thoroughness of explanation and putting clients at ease. Your report is also excellent! You have my support!
I know it’s not often we get a pat on the back, so here is my pat on the back and high five.
Keep up the great work!
Thank you so very much for all your hard work and attention to detail in the home inspection. It is comforting to know that a capable and competent home inspector has gone through the building and noted all the potential problem areas that need to be addressed. In particular, I’d like to thank you very much for working through the holiday season and preparing such a detailed document.
It has been an absolute pleasure working with you. I will not hesitate to use your services again for future purchases and will gladly refer your company to friends and others looking to purchase real estate as well.
Happy New Year!

Great experience, we will definitely recommend you.
Your thorough inspection definitely helped to reassure us and provided a fresh perspective. We also appreciate the contacts you gave us for duct cleaning & other services.
Keep up the great work!
Thanks so much for the detailed house tour, as well as the quick delivery on the report. Once we have a chance to review it we will get back to you if we have any outstanding questions.
First off, thank you so much for scheduling us in so close to Christmas. I wanted to send you a quick note to let you know that was a great experience for my clients. I’m always hesitant when referring anyone for the first time, but I’m really impressed with your approach. This transaction has had a number of challenges and I was relieved that you took the time to explain everything to them and slow things down since English is not their first language. Your approach and background as a REALTOR will go a long way in your new venture. I have a stack of your cards and will absolutely be referring your services in the future.
It is a pleasure working with you, and see you in the New Year!
Thank you so much for your promptness and professionalism. I appreciate all the hard work.
