A home inspection is particularly important when purchasing a home.

Buying a home is probably one of the largest investments a person will ever make but few buyers are experienced in building construction and overlooking a serious issue could result in a costly problem at a later date. As a result many buyers choose to have a building inspection prior to the closing date of the property sale. Sometimes, the inspection can identified many issues that will allow the buyer to discuss these with the seller during the final negotiation.

Commercial Building Inspections

Includes inspections of apartment complexes, motels, office buildings, retail stores and warehouses. The inspection evaluates the major systems of the property and the visible structural components as well as the HVAC equipment.

Pre-sale Inspection

Plan ahead for any repairs or negotiate the selling price.

This will make the buyer more confident in the purchase and keep pre-closing problems free to both buyers/ sellers. It will provide you and your potential buyers the complete peace of mind that comes from knowing the true condition of your house  and inform you of any repair items that could pose a problem,  reduces the chance of last-minute “surprises” that could delay a deal  and helps you sell your house faster and easier at the best possible price.

A pre-sale inspection helps ensure that there are fewer surprises in a real estate transaction, because everyone involved becomes more familiar with the property’s current condition. By making repairs and disclosing to the prospective buyer the property’s condition up front, before negotiations begin, you can create a more relaxed atmosphere and help you sell faster and closer to listing price.

Maintenance Inspections

A maintenance inspection will provide you with an objective report on the condition of your home and will assist you with making decisions of your property.

Many times homeowners are not aware of potential maintenance issues that may arise and will end up with higher cost for repairs; this maintenance inspection will alert you to areas of concern beforehand and end up saving you money over the long term.

WETT Inspections

An inspection for the wood burning technologies in your home is important for a number of reasons, not the least of which is the safety of you and your family.

WETT certified inspection, which stands for Wood Energy Technology Transfer, includes a thorough inspection of all wood burning appliances such as stoves, combination furnace and fireplaces including flue pipe connection and chimney, by a WETT certified inspector.

WETT inspections are more than just something to offer you peace of mind, if wood-burning appliances are a part of your home’s features when purchase, it is very important that these appliances are inspected for your safety. In Canada, insurance companies require homes using wood burning appliances to be thoroughly inspected by a WETT certified professional before the home can be insured.

With wood burning appliances, the potential for harmful pollutants to be released into your home as well as combustible materials to ignite is increased, so it is important that these appliances are regularly inspected and properly maintained.

Radon testing

Radon is an odorless, radioactive gas formed from the breakdown of uranium. It has no odour, colour or taste. Exposure to high levels of radium over a lifetime results in an increased risk of developing lung cancer, especially if the person who is exposed is a smoker. Radon is found naturally in the environment and is common in New Brunswick. It moves freely through the soil and can seep into buildings through cracks in foundation walls and floors or gaps around pipes and cables. In a poorly ventilated space, radon can accumulate to high levels and can be addressed by improving a building’s ventilation and closing entry points.

The current Canadian guideline for radon in indoor air for dwellings is 200 Becquerels per cubic metre (200 Bq/m3) and can be tested out to provide you with an accurate read out of the level inside your property in order to minimize the level by an installation of a mitigation system if required.

Thermal Inspections

This form of building inspection is non-intrusive and non-destructive and allows our certified inspectors to accurately depict any conditions in your home or office that are not visible to the naked eye. With our state of the art Infrared equipment, we can monitor and store details about material temperatures within your property and record anomalies that could result in the following;

  • Mold growth due to wet or humid insulation
  • Heat loss due to lack of insulation & building defect
  • Energy loss due to building defects
  • Glass or window sealing conditions
  • Radiant floor or ceiling conditions
  • Air infiltration or leak areas including inadequate or improperly applied flashing or sealant
  • Electrical firing
  • HVAC blockages

With wood burning appliances, the potential for harmful pollutants to be released into your home as well as combustible materials to ignite is increased, so it is important that these appliances are regularly inspected and properly maintained.
