THE LEADER IN HOME INSPECTIONS IN WASHAGO

Why get a home inspection? Buying a home is one of the most significant decisions and biggest investments you will ever make. A professional home inspection will enable you to learn a great deal about a home, help give you peace of mind and answer some important questions. Whether you are buying or selling, you will have the benefit of knowing the ins and outs of a particular home.

We specialize in building inspection of houses,condos, manufactured homes, rural properties, acreages and mobile homes in the Washago and Severn Township area.  Our clients are presented with a very comprehensive and easy to read report.  Each property is inspected in detail according to the standards and practices outlined by InterNACHI (International Association of Certified Home Inspectors).  Many aspects are covered, including roofing, exterior, structure, insulation, heating and air-conditioning (HVAC), electrical and plumbing systems, to name just a few. An educated consumer is a smart consumer.

Our inspection process goes beyond the standard home inspection requirements.  Our goal is to ensure you have the education, understanding and practical information you need to both make the decision and make the most of your new home.  Our expert knowledge of the Ontario Building Code and Construction Practices enables us to provide a more comprehensive inspection of your property.

We are not new to this business: we’ve been inspecting homes, condos and commercial real estate for over 10 years and have personally performed well over 5,000 home inspections making us one of the most experienced and demanded home inspection firms in the Washago area.

For the Homebuyer: You will gain an education of the home, top to bottom, so that you will know exactly what you are buying. Upon completion of the thorough inspection of your future home, our inspector will provide you with a comprehensive computer generated evaluation of the (up to 1,600) items visually checked during the inspection. This will include items that have been found or that you may have noticed prior to the inspection. This information will help you to buy with confidence knowing that a true professional has carefully evaluated and inspected your future home.

Each property inspection includes a THERMAL IMAGING SCAN at no extra cost.  The use of an infrared camera will discover areas of heat loss from within a house or condo, identifying problem areas of heat loss and therefore increased energy costs for the potential house buyer or seller. An Infrared camera can also help to find moisture in the walls ie: from a water leak or cracked foundation. It  is also helpful in finding overloaded electrical circuits (mostly in older homes).

Our detailed inspection report, complete with pictures of every deficiency and maintenance issue, can give you a heads up on what may be required today, and in the future. Save money by discovering and addressing deficiencies and problems before they become an expensive repair or require replacement.

Washago On has become a desireable location for retirees and indiviuals wanting affordable waterfront property. Washago is a growing community and has lots of rivers and forested areas.
