Everyone knows that home ownership is the Canadian Dream. That dream can quickly become a nightmare, however, for uninformed buyers. Even newly constructed homes can harbour costly mistakes – mistakes that may not be visible to the untrained eye.
Your home is a major investment. Whether you intend to stay in it forever or plan to move someday, chances are good that you will spend the next several years in your new home. Why not take the time up front to get a quality home inspection for your new purchase, to ensure you won’t come across any unexpected surprises down the road?
The Inspection is intended to focus on the “big picture” and address those items that could affect your buying decision. Therefore, a professional home inspector will not be looking at cosmetic items such as scratches to the cupboards, nail pops in drywall, torn wall paper etc. A standard home inspection usually does not include appliances or low voltage systems like telephone wiring, television cable, alarm systems etc. It will not address environmental concerns such as, but not limited to, air and/or water quality asbestos, radon gas, moulds, toxins, carcinogens etc.
A home inspection is visual in nature, non-destructive and non invasive. The inspector is a guest in the home needs to respect the seller’s property. The inspector will not move furniture, lift carpets, cut holes in walls, shovel snow, or dismantle equipment. The inspection is not technically exhaustive and all encompassing due to the various limitations of a visual inspection. For this reason it is important to hire an experienced inspector with excellent communication skills and a strong technical background.
