Welcome to Discovery Inspections...

Hello! My name is Darryl Saam. My family and I are the proud owners and operators of Discovery Inspections & Drain Doctors, Vancouver Island's most trusted inspection companies. It is an honour to represent a company with standards that are unmatched in their industries, providing exceptionally thorough inspections and competitive prices. It is imperative to me that every one of our inspectors and technicians are highly skilled, qualified professionals who are eager to perform the most thorough inspection and consultations possible. Our inspectors are all committed to these standards... and to our clients. 

As a Registered Onsite Wastewater Practitioner (ROWP) and a licensed residential, commercial, septic, and hazardous material inspector with more than 20 years of construction, real estate development, investment, and renovation experience, I am passionate about every aspect of this industry. I am happy to personally oversee every inspection that is done by Discovery Home Inspections, Drain Doctor Septic Inspections, Discovery Commercial Inspections, and Discovery Hazmat surveys, ensuring that our clients always receive the highest quality service and expertise possible. It is my goal to ensure that Discovery Inspections & Drain Doctors bring unparalleled professionalism and ethics to their industries and to protect and advocate for the home buyers and home owners who have graciously put their faith and trust in our expertise.



*  "Thank-you for your detailed and comprehensive report. I have never received such a thorough home inspection report before. I know that Lauren appreciated the extra time you took with her to walk through the house. She is very nervous about buying her first home. As her parents, Gail and I appreciate everything you have done to make her more at ease. We are nearing retirement and considering relocating to the Nanaimo area. I would not hesitate to use your services or recommend your services in the future." - Thank-you, Mike Adams

*  "Thank you for this! My partner and I have commented on your professionalism, knowledge, and service. You provided a level of service that made us forget we had spent money - thank you for that. Hopefully we won't have to be in touch in the future, but at least if we do have to be, we know it will be a pleasure." - Best Regards, Lauren - Nanaimo

*  "Thanks so much for that, great to also have a PDF version of the printed report. I really appreciated you taking time to show me things I could do to make the house great and how to fix the things wrong with it. Based on past experiences with other home inspections you have been the best. I will recommend you to everyone. " - Thanks again, Jordan Gagne

*  "Thanks again for the professional work today. We are real picky with proper home owning and all of your 'pick ups' and tips today were exactly what we expected (and then some) from an experienced hand. We will for sure take care of the items listed in your report. We would recommend you any time." - Best Regards, Garret and Sherry Watchorn

*  "Just wanted to tell you how very impressed we were with the home inspection you did yesterday on the property. Your inspector should be commended for his attention to detail and his in depth reporting. We are so glad you were recommended to us by our agent. The photographs and recommendation are fantastic and the report is so easy to read. Congratulations to the company for doing an outstanding job! Thank you very much for your great work." - Larry and Maureen Macneil

*  "Thank you so much for spending the time and looking through the house, but most of all, thank you for going over it with us. It sure makes me feel better and I'm sure my Mom does too. We also appreciate the binder, it will be very helpful." - Sincerely, Kim Kostiuk

*  "Thank you so much for the comprehensive home inspection that you did for us at our new home. It was very clear and easy for us to understand and we are so glad that we used your services!" - Thanks Again, Wendy and Pat Clancy

*  "Darryl Saam was extremely thorough and went above and beyond what is required of a home inspection. He stated that doing this is his passion and it shows! He answered all of the questions that we had and was very knowledgeable. He was an absolute pleasure to work with, very friendly and put us at ease. The report is easy to read and it was really neat how he added comments to the pictures that he included in the report. I work for a major financial institution and will be referring all of my mortgage clients to Mr. Saam." - Abigail King
