We know that purchasing a home is one of the largest investments that you will make throughout your lifetime. With this in mind, we take care to note as many details as possible during the inspection process.

New Home Warranty Inspection Services
Consider having a home inspection prior to the expiry of your warranty period. A report of documented concerns from a Certified Home Inspector can provide peace of mind that your home is free of any defects and built to current standards.
Home Maintenance Inspections
Not everyone sees their home through trained eyes and it is easy to miss things that could become major issues later on. A home maintenance inspection helps you identify potential problems before they become expensive repairs. It also gives you peace of mind knowing that your property is safe for your family and visitors.
Frequently Asked Questions
Buying or selling a home can be a stressful experience, but we’re here to ensure you know what to expect during your home inspection.
A home inspection is a non-invasive visual examination of the foundation and basement, roof, attic, heating and water systems, electrical and plumbing systems, as well as the general condition of the structure itself. Depending on factors such as how big the property is, the age of property, and the number of defects found, a home inspection typically begins at 3-4 hours.
Ensure all inspection points are free from clutter, including any closets that might lead to a crawlspace or attic, and clearing some space around your home’s perimeter. It’s also important to check the functionality of all built-in appliances, electric, and gas. If you don’t plan to attend the inspection, make sure your inspector has access to the home, and all pets are properly contained or moved.
A home doesn’t pass or fail an inspection. Instead, a home inspection is a thorough audit of your home’s components. In most cases, there will be concerns marked on your home inspection report, but these are strictly informative.
While you can skip a home inspection in many cases, doing so could mean you may end up buying a home that has major issues that need to be fixed.
While a home inspector may recommend some minor repairs, they are not qualified to make major repairs. He or she can provide information about what needs to be repaired — and it might be helpful to know that information — but the decision to actually do the work lies solely with the homeowner. Not only does this provide you the freedom to choose your contractors, but it also helps prevent a conflict of interest.
