THE LEADER IN HOME INSPECTIONS IN BARRIE
Your choice of a professional home inspector can give you the Peace of Mind you need when purchasing a new residential property. Often, hiring a home inspector comes down to referrals and recommendations from those in the industry or contacting inspectors based on internet searching. We recommend you carefully review qualifications and amount of experience your home inspector has. 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.
That perfect new home may look great but as a professional home inspector I will help you identify potential problems. Many older homes today have problems areas that are not disclosed, such as; aluminum wiring, vermiculite insulation and galvanized plumbing.
Identifying a major problem does not necessarily mean you will lose that home, most sellers when confronted with the evidence of a major concern or defect will correct that deficiency at their own expense. Our detailed Home Inspection ensures that it is the Home Owner, and not you the Buyer who will bear this financial responsibility.
Even your local building inspection department misses deficiencies that should have been addressed during the construction phase inspections. Some examples are: missing ice and water shield on roofs, joist hangers missing nails, improper height of steps, holes in joists too close to edges and missing insulation in areas of attic. Hiring a professional home inspector may permit you to avoid paying for these deficiencies to be repaired or rectified.
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.
