We are dedicated to providing professional, unbiased home inspections throughout the East Kootenays and Columbia Valley. Our home inspection provides an unbiased look at critical components of the house by a qualified and experienced professional, and our commitment to superior service has never wavered. We are dedicated to providing clear, concise, inspections and reports so that our clients have the best information possible when buying or selling a home. We truly want the best for our clients and are committed to providing the information required to make an informed decision.

Inspections cover the visible and readily accessible areas of the home and focus on the condition of systems and components relative to general maintenance, structural integrity and occupant health and safe usage. The computer-generated report provided describes the systems and components inspected which are deficient or near the end of their service lives, in the professional opinion of the inspector. It includes photos of deficiencies to assist the client in understanding the discovery as well as complimentary photos throughout the home. If not self-evident, the report includes an explanation of the potential causes of the deficiencies and recommended corrective actions. Reports are provided to the client upon completion of the inspection with an e-report viewable on the Internet or a printed report usually within 24 hrs.

A quality inspection takes time. Most inspections will take from 4 to 5 hrs depending on the size and complexity of the home.

It is not required that you are present for the inspection, but you are encouraged to attend. Many clients prefer to attend during the later part of the inspection as it is nearing completion. This will give you the opportunity to get to know your new home, observe it's systems, and allow the inspector to explain how they operate.
