"A ‘friend of a friend’ recommended a house to us and we engaged Robert to inspect this property on our behalf. Coming from a new home, we were a little unsure about purchasing an older home.

However he gave us the confidence to purchase noting the pitfalls we would be in for and once it was ours, we then asked Robert to help us with the re-design of our home - from selection of architect and builders to budgeting and project management - he made it look easy.

11 years later and we are still here!"

"Robert has inspected 4 properties for us and we eventually purchased our large 70’s family home in 2009. Our new home was tired and dated and we just needed re-assurance that it was sound for at least 5 years whilst we planned and saved for our renovation. Robert advised that we would have to at the very least re-roof immediately, which we did.

8 years later and we were finally ready to renovate and we once again approached Robert to assist us with design considerations, costings and through to project management of the build. Without question everyone cannot believe that we did this extensive renovation in under 4 months and within budget.

I cannot speak more highly of Robert Gardien on both a personal and professional level, and can (and do) unreservedly recommend him to anyone looking for a house inspection or independent unbiased building advice."
