Why is a Home Inspection Important?
A home is one of the largest investments you will ever make. Any imperfection in your purchased house, can take you through minor to major monetary stress. A home inspection will reinsure you of the quality of your home and property.
This is a good opportunity for a thorough look in getting to know your home, before making any decisions.
All-round, Interactive Inspection
I as your home inspector, can perform a visual and non-destructive inspection of your house. I highly recommend you to participate in the inspection to get to know your home and how to maintain it. I am a Registered Home Inspector (RHI) with the Canadian Association of Home and Property Inspectors (CAHPI). I believe, as a member of this professional association, encourages me to continue to improve my professional skills and help to provide you with confidence and peace of mind on your new home purchase.
Being Wood Energy Technology Transfer (WETT) certified, I am also qualified to inspect your wood burning appliances. Therefore, you may not have to hire another inspector to inspect your chimney and stoves.
I am also a qualified radon measurement specialist; I am able to test your home for radon gas. Checking of the radon levels are important because prolonged exposure is noted to be the first leading cause of lung cancer. Radon gas enters the building from the ground; therefore, the test to check the radon levels should start from the lowest living level where you expect to spend four hours or more per day in the area or before renovations.
