For more information about the inspection process please visit the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) section.
Are you buying a home? A home inspection will provide you with a comprehensive visual assessment of the home and the systems and components that you will rely on each day - for example the windows, doors, floors, furnace, or air conditioner. Learn how to maintain your home, remedy safety and hazardous concerns, and improve home comfort. Your new home is essentially a machine, let us help you understand how it works and how it is performing today, in simple, easy to understand language.
Are you selling your home? Know your home inside and out with a comprehensive visual assessment of all the systems and components - before the negotiation process takes place. Our knowledge of homes and home building practices will provide you with valuable information about the current state of your home, with a full inspection report. Be prepared when potential home buyers try to negotiate a "condition of sale" or price reduction, based on your listing price, and knowing your own home.
We help you assess the current and future requirements for your new bathroom, kitchen, basement, or addition, for example. Gain valuable insight about the typical issues that arise during the renovation process, including a follow-up "in-process-renovation" inspection to ensure the job is done right.
Also known as a Single Item Inspection, a problem solving inspection could be related to a specific component, system or area of the home - for example plumbing & electrical issues, stains on the ceiling, or an uncomfortable or unsafe condition in the home - damp basement, drafty/cold rooms, or a sunken deck. Find out your options by emailing your questions to Michael at firstname.lastname@example.org or phoning 613-286-8925.
Create a comprehensive checklist to maintain your home year round, and for the future. Your home is often your greatest asset and taking care of it is the best investment you can make. From tips on when to change furnace filters and cleaning gutters, to larger systems and components in the home (for example the condition and age of your air conditioner, furnace, windows, or roof). Even the best roof requires up-keep to perform it's function properly - to keep you, your family, and the home dry. Maintenance Inspections are recommended every 2 - 3 years.
Your home is often your biggest investment and is also where you spend most of your time. Ensuring you, your family and guests are safe in your home is our priority, by creating a comprehensive checklist to improve home comfort. It is similar to a Maintenance Inspection, and is recommended every 5 years. Many home improvements are of minimal or no cost to the home owner, however disregarding safety or water discharge improvements (for example) can lead to costly repairs.
Going on vacation or an extended stay away from home? Check with your insurance provider to see how often your home needs to be monitored in your absence, to maintain full insurance coverage. Every home must be monitored inside and out, as a home owner would, checking for vandalism, water damage, general/safe operation of the heating system, plumbing, and the home itself. For durations of more than 2 weeks, we recommend all water systems are shut down and drained, recommissioned within 48hrs of the home owners return. Trust a home inspector to provide reliable home monitoring services for your home.
