The home inspection includes a visual  inspection of the Roof, Exterior, Attic, Interior, Plumbing, Electrical, Heating/AC and Structure. These areas must be accessible in order to be inspected. A more detailed description can be found on the Inspection page.

For you, the home buyer, having a good understanding of the condition of your future home is crucial to making an informed decision. Infrared Technology (Thermal imaging) gives you that extra information that you would otherwise not be aware of. Infrared technology may identify hidden problems such as missing insulation, electrical hot spots and potential water leaks. We use a high quality Fluke Infrared Camera to identify potential problems and follow up with a GE moisture meter when a potential water leak is identified. The Infrared camera is also capable of taking photos which can be included in your home inspection report.

It depends on the property, size, age and condition. Small apartment style condos take approximately 1.5 hours. Single family homes average 2.5 – 3 hours. After the on-site inspection the report is completed at our office and emailed to you the same day.

The preferred method of payment is Etransfer, Cash, Visa or MasterCard. We do not take Cheques, AMEX or debit. Payment is due at the inspection. If you are using a credit card payment can be made onsite.
