This includes a thorough inspection of the major systems of the home to provide peace of mind and help you make the right decision. It will familiarize you with the systems of the home and how they work. My report will explain the maintenance and repairs that may be required.
Most homes today have a Pre-Purchase Home Inspection. By having a Pre-List Inspection you can eliminate any surprises and last minute re-negotiations. You can correct any deficiencies found, if you choose. It will remove some of the stress of selling your home, can help it sell faster, and may help it to sell for more money.
11 MONTH WARRANTY INSPECTION FOR NEW HOMES
Unfortunately even new homes are not perfect. For a number of years now, Alberta has required newly built homes to have a New Home Warranty Program in place to carry a 1 year Materials and labour Warranty. My home inspection will provide you with an opportunity to have the builder correct or repair problems with your home. It is a thorough and comprehensive inspection inside and out to find valid construction deficiencies. Remember these inspection reports should be submitted before the due date, so book your inspection one or two weeks in advance.
Much like a medical checkup for your body, a maintenance home inspection discovers issues as they develop. This allows property owners to be prepared for future expenses. For example, we can estimate the life expectancy of your roof, heating & cooling system, etc. We will also recommend unbiased repairs/upgrades to increase the comfort/enjoyment of your home while reducing your heating/cooling costs, give you maintenance tips, and answer questions to provide you with a better understanding of your home. This inspection is similar to a standard property inspection with the emphasis being on maintaining a sound property with tips to improve your home from minimum or low-quality residential construction practices.
You can reduce the chance of renovation headaches by finding out what you don’t know before you start. My comprehensive report will give you objective information that you need to create a better renovation design plan, and alert you to any structural, plumbing, electrical, or other existing issues. I will give you recommendations to increase comfort, reduce maintenance costs, and make your house more energy efficient by educating you on how you can build to higher standards. Because we do not profit or benefit in any way from our recommendations, we can truly advise you in an unbiased manner.
Multi-Family Housing Inspection
Multi-Family homes, such as duplexes, tri-plex, condos, and small apartment buildings, can be good investments, but these buildings have additional inspection needs from single-family dwellings. For one thing, there are usually multiple sinks and toilets, all of which could potentially leak. You often also have multiple mechanical systems, such as two or more furnaces and two or more water tanks. Central systems, like boilers and central air conditioning, need to be adequate to supply all units. Before you invest in such a property, it is wise to know exactly what shape the building is in so you can address any issues with the seller before closing.
