What We Do
We specialize in domestic building inspection of houses,condos, manufactured homes, rural properties, acreages and mobile homes in the Edmonton area.

Each property is inspected in detail according to the standards and practices outlined by Certified Master Inspector (the industry's toughest) code of ethics, also InterNACHI code of ethics (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.
Inclusive Infrared Imaging Scan
* Thermal pictures show cold spots indicating missing insulation.
Each property inspection includes a THERMAL IMAGING SCAN as standard and 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).
Home Buyers Report
Each House inspection itself is very thorough, and then followed up by a full and jargon free report which will systematically explain each item on the inspection checklist, detailing the results of each check and any deficiencies found. Each report, approximately 60-70 pages includes approximately 100+ pictures. (See a sample report).
