A Home Straight Inspection

A Home Straight home inspection is a detailed visual examination of your home outlining the current condition of all the major systems in your home.

These include:

· Roofing - flashings, valleys, covering, chimney, gutters and downspouts
· Exterior - wall cladding, grading, walkways, decks, porches
· Foundation and Structure - crawl spaces, attics, beams, columns
· Electrical - panels, wiring, main service, grounding, switches and receptacles

· Plumbing - fixtures, supply piping, drains, water heater
· Interior - stairs, floors, walls, ceilings, doors, windows, fireplace
· Insulation and Ventilation - attic insulation, roof ventilation, plumbing vents
· Safety - smoke alarms, GFCI's, carbon monoxide issues

A typical inspection takes approximately 3 - 4 hours depending on the size, age, and condition of the property. It follows the Standards of Practice of the Canadian Association of Home and Property Inspectors (CAHPI) and covers all the main areas of the house. A detailed inspection report with photos is provided within 24 hours.

We encourage clients to participate in the inspection so that we can better address any of their questions and concerns. During our walk through together we can point out and explain our findings.

Pre-Purchase Inspection

This inspection prior to purchasing 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 each of the house systems and how they work. It will explain the maintenance and repairs that may be required and will make you aware of any major issues that may be present.

Pre-List Inspection

Having a Pre-List Inspection eliminates any surprises and last minute re-negotiations. Deficiencies may be corrected before you list, if you wish. Or the problems can be disclosed to the buyer in advance. It shows the buyer that you are proud of your home. It can help it sell faster, and may help it to sell for more money.

Tarion New Home Warranty inspection

The Tarion New Home Warranty program provides warranty coverage for owners of newly constructed homes. We will inspect your new home after 11 months of occupancy so that you are able to complete and submit the Tarion Year-End Form before the first year expiry date.

Pre-Delivery Inspection (PDI)

Our Pre-Delivery (PDI) inspection will help identify any damaged or missing items and other deficiencies before you take possession of your newly constructed home. We will provide you with the information needed to complete the Tarion PDI Form.

Single Item Inspection

If there is an area of concern that you wish to have inspected, such as the roof or the foundation, we will inspect this area at a reduced rate.

Maintenance Inspection

Our Maintenance inspection is for home owners wanting to be sure they are keeping up with necessary maintenance so that they can keep their home looking good for many years. This inspection includes a detailed report including photos delivered both by email and regular mail.

Our home inspector, Ralph Kors, welcomes the opportunity to provide you with the information you need to make the correct decision regarding your home purchase. Please call Ralph at (519)497-8143 for more details or to book your home inspection.
