New Home Inspection

Before you take ownership of your newly constructed home you will walk through the home with your builder. You should also have your home inspected by a qualified home inspector. Make sure your newly constructed house is complete and ready to move in to. An independent inspection often uncovers defects overlooked by municipal inspectors and the builder's inspector, and can help ensure that deficiencies are corrected under the Ontario New Home Warranty Program and/or at the builder's expense.

Building a new home is a tremendously complex endeavor. It involves many people, usually split up into sub-contractor groups, each working on different parts and systems of the house. Even for the best builders, its nearly impossible to complete this process without missing something.

Home buyers who hire independent home inspectors are much better off because they get the undivided attention of a qualified and experienced home inspector. Warranty coverage begins on the date of possession of your home.

The Report?

After the inspection, we produce a computer generated report for the complete business inspection. The report includes a detailed analysis of the building, digital photographs for visual display of significant problem areas, and general maintenance tips.

  • Detailed report which can be referenced in listings and on feature sheets.
  • Additional articles relevant to information contained in the report (i.e. removing mold, reducing heat loss).
  • Colour hard copy for all business partners.
  • A recall check on appliances and HVAC systems.

Why get Inspected?

Large investments require informed decisions, hiring an unbiased, third-party inspector ensures that the building inspection does what it’s meant to do – protect you.

  • Alerts you of any deficiencies or safety issues.
  • Ranks and prioritizes any deficiencies.
  • Provide tips and recommendations for correcting deficiencies.
  • Assist in acquiring financing and insurance.

Thermal Imaging:

Thermographic imaging cameras detect temperature variations related to heat and moisture along building surfaces. Anything with a temperature above absolute zero emits heat. A thermal camera is able to detect this heat and create a thermal image based on that information.

Thermographic imaging cameras can detect serious problems the naked eye can’t see, such as:

  • Plumbing leaks
  • Air duct leaks
  • Moisture intrusion
  • Inadequate or non-existent insulation
  • Heating and cooling losses
  • Abnormal heat from an appliance or
    electrical system
  • Unwanted animals
  • Poor construction
