Halifax Home Inspections Limited

Practicing in Halifax since 1995

Hello, my name is Darren Smith. Welcome to my company Website. I hope you find it informative. Please feel free to call, email or text me if you have any questions. After years of running a much larger home inspection company I am thrilled with Halifax Home Inspections to now answer my own phone and to deal directly with my customers from start to finish.

The Gallery portion of this website is an example of some of the stories I see. These are all pictures taken at home inspections I performed just in the few months before I developed this website. My father was a police detective and I can't help but feel like a detective myself. The house detective.

Pre-Purchase Inspections

I want our time spent together during the home inspection to be informative and enjoyable. I strive to be as thorough as possible but I also want my customers to enjoy themselves. I will inspect your potential new home as if I were buying it myself. I look at each house as a challenge. Regardless of the house's age, it has a story and it is my challenge to figure out as much of that story as possible and then to document it and provide the documentation to you.

Listing or pre-sale inspections

An incredibly proactive measure in a competitive real estate market is for an owner to have a property inspection preformed on a property they are selling. The owner then knows exactly what condition the property is in. It avoids last minute conflicts when a buyer is found and gives the owner a leg up on the other properties for sale. If the owner so chooses the house can be advertised as pre-inspected. I have marketing material available for just such an occurrence. Lawn signs, etc.


I am available for consultation on a wide range of issues pertaining to your home.

WETT Inspections

I can complete inspections on your wood burning appliances for insurance purposes.

Radon Testing

Using a state of the art continuous radon monitor I can test your house for this deadly radioactive gas.

Thermal Imaging

I carry a FLIR brand thermal image camera. Arguably the finest thermal image inspection camera brand there is.
