For most of us, our homes are where we spend most of our time. It is our shelter and escape from all the stresses of the world. Your home should be a haven for your family. A Home Inspection will show you whether, or not, your current or future home is safe and secure.
The safety of your shelter can be undermined by many things. A loose railing could cause some one to fall down the stairs. A leak under a bathroom could cause structural damage and mould growth. A faulty breaker in the electrical panel could cause a fire. And an expired smoke detectors may not operate in the case of a fire. These are some of the issues that a Home Inspection will uncover for you. Plus, much more…
Prairie Home Inspection will inspect your home to the CAN/CSA-A770-16 Home Inspection National Standards of Canada. This means that your home will be inspected to the highest, national standards available and that all the accessible critical components will be examined. The standards were not created with just the input of Home Inspectors. Many other organizations contributed to the standards such as: Consumer Groups, Safety Authorities, Government Agencies and Technical Institutes. Because we inspect to this standard you can be assured of an accurate assessment of your home’s condition.
What if your home is brand new, should it still be inspected? Yes, you should arrange for Home Inspection. Most builders do a pretty good job. But, we are only human and construction crews sometimes have bad days.
One of those “bad days” could result in a major, undetected issue like your furnace venting the products of combustion into your living space or, missing flashing on your roof that could lead to water damage to the home and contents.
Some issues can’t be detected with conventional inspection methods. To protect your safety and your health, we recommend adding a Thermal Imaging Inspection and Indoor Air Quality Inspection to your Home Inspection.
This is your dream home; let us help you keep the dream alive!
