Choosing a Home Inspector

Picking a home inspector can be a difficult task for anyone who is shopping for a home.  We know that and we’d like to help!

  • The most important factor in choosing a home inspector is to ensure that you choose one who will provide you with the proper service and advice.  Remember that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure and we would suggest that you do not choose an inspector based solely on his/her fee. Instead, look for experience and ask questions, lots of questions such as:
    • How long he/she has been in the business and what is his/her experience in the industry?
    • What are his/her educational background and qualifications?
    • Is he/she a full member of any professional provincial and/or home inspection association?
  • Check with the professional and home inspection associations concerning the inspector’s background and verify the inspector’s proof of membership  Make sure he/she is a full member, not merely an associated member or applicant.
  • Check with better business bureau to make sure he/she is in good standing.
  • Make your own personal assessment of how the inspector appears to you as a professional.  Ask yourself:  Will he/she get the job done?  Has he/she answered all the questions you have asked?
  • Ask for references from satisfied customers.
    • Remember that you need a professional engineer to help resolve and analyze any engineering issues that arise during the inspection.
  • Our Commitment to Privacy:
      • We take customer privacy seriously and do not sell or give out any customer information. We do not keep a mailing list nor distribute a newsletter.
