BOOK A HOME INSPECTION

The Home Inspection

A house is likely the largest single investment an individual will ever make. We suggest prospective homeowners arrange for a thorough home inspection before finalizing a purchase. Think of a professional home inspection as a general check up of the house and its health. A home inspector will, through the home inspection process, analyse the condition of the house and present a detailed report of the home’s issues.

The home inspection report will highlight maintenance shortcomings, neglect and safety issues. These issues may affect critical systems within the home. The report will identify which of these systems shows visual signs of being at the end of its usable life.

Inspectors evaluate the building’s overall condition by examining the various visible components of walls, ceilings, roof, floors, windows, structure, and more. Your home inspector will inspect your accessible mechanical systems such as hot water tank, furnace, and electrical panel.

There are more services that can be added to a typical home inspection that will provide you with even more information about your home. Thermal imaging is a powerful tool that can be used on all inspections. The infrared camera can help you find leaks, missing insulation, hot spots in the electrical panel an more. Another valuable service to add to a home inspection is an Indoor Air Quality test. The IAQ service will tell you if there is harmful mould or asbestos in the home’s breathable air. Your home inspector/indoor air quality consultant can also take physical samples of mould or asbestos for laboratory processing. These services will help to give you a clearer picture as to the condition of your home.

The Commercial Building Inspection

A commercial property can represent a major portion of a business’s costs. Due to these substantial dollar figures it makes sense to do everything you can to protect your investment. Therefore, a business owner should consider arranging a commercial building inspection on all commercial property purchases.

Inspectors evaluate the building’s overall condition by examining the various visible components such as walls, ceilings, roof, floors, windows, structure, and more. Your commercial building inspector will report on such mechanical systems such as boilers, RTU’s, and electrical panel.

Your commercial building inspection report will highlight maintenance shortcomings, neglect and safety issues. These issues may affect critical systems within the property. The report will identify which of these systems shows visual signs of being at the end of its usable life. The report will also include an opinion of replacement cost or repair cost of any failed or failing major component.
