Halifax Home


Hello, my name is Darren Smith. After years of running a much larger home inspection company, I am thrilled to have started Halifax Home Inspections so I can answer my own phone and 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. I have helped hundreds of homeowners and potential homeowners prepare themselves for one of lifes most important transactions.


My father was a police detective and I can't help but feel like a detective myself. The house detective.

Our Services

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. document it and provide the report 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 performed on a property they are selling. The owner then knows exactly what condition the property is in. It avoids unexpected conflicts once a buyer is found and gives the owner an edge on competing properties for sale. I have marketing material available to my clients if you want to show off the inspection.

I have years of knowledge I can apply to provide you the best solutions to improve and protect your house.


I can complete inspections on your wood burning appliances for insurance purposes or peace of mind.

WETT Inspections

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

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

"We were extremely pleased with Mr. Smith and Halifax Home Inspections. As first time home buyers, we were nervous about the whole process and had lots of questions. Mr. Smith was very kind and patient with us and answered all of our questions and explained everything to us. After the inspection, we felt much more at ease in buying our home and I believe that Mr. Smith had a lot to do with it. Not only did he point out problems, but he also explained to us how to fix the problems. We greatly appreciate all of your help, and we will certainly recommend your services to others."
