Our Services What We Do

Our Services

All of our inspections are carried out to meet or exceed the Standards of practice of the National Association of Certified Home Inspectors (NACHI) and the Applied Science Technologists and Technicians of BC (ASTTBC-PI).

A new addition to our inspections is the use of an infrared camera for thermal imaging. This camera has greatly increased the amount of information and detail we can obtain about the condition of the home. Information regarding thermal imaging can be seen by clicking on the above tab.

The typical home inspection will take two to four hours depending on the size and condition of the home. We encourage the purchaser of the home to be present during the inspection. Towards the end of the on-site portion, we will walk together around the home reviewing the results of the inspection. This is a great opportunity to ask any questions about the home and to learn more about future maintenance requirements and necessary repairs. Following the inspection, a detailed type-written report is sent by e-mail to the homebuyer. An example of our report is available here.

The major areas of the home which are inspected are listed below:

  • Building site
  • Structure and foundation
  • Siding and windows
  • Roofs and attic
  • Patios and decks
  • Crawl spaces and basements
  • Plumbing systems
  • Electrical systems
  • Heating system

Some items, which are not included in our inspections, are:

  • Household appliances
  • Security systems
  • Fire sprinkler systems
  • Garden irrigation systems
  • Swimming pools and spas
  • Air conditioning and ventilation systems

A detailed list of inclusions and exclusions can be found in the Standards of Practice page.
