A certified home inspection is a visual examination of the physical condition of a home or building. In most situations (but not always), you will usually find a certified home inspection, connected to the sale of that home or building. What is discovered, will often determine the successful completion of that purchase.
A certified home inspection will usually include a thorough
examination of the foundation and basement, roof, attic, heating and
water systems, electrical and plumbing systems, as well as the general
condition of the structure itself. The certified home inspector will discover any poor construction practices and he/she will
document these discoveries in the report, followed by of any repairs
that might be required or any general maintenance issues that are
needed; Any fire and safety issues that are discovered and addressed,
will also be noted in the report.
The certified home
inspection report results/finding from the inspector are not based on a
pass or fail. The report submitted will only provide details of an
itemized list of the condition from the home/building inspected and any
work that should or need to be done.
inspections are conducted in over 90% of all real estate home and
commercial building transactions. A certified home inspection is not
just about protecting your investment, but also about protecting you and
your family. Our certified home inspectors understand this and take
their profession very seriously, meeting the standards of care that are
needed. They are aware of their role they play in your decision to make
one of the biggest investment of your life.
Even though is it not mandatory to have a certified home inspection in every province; A certified home inspection should be a part of every real estate transaction. It is one of the best ways to ensure that everyone is protected.
