“Mr. Gaumont gave us an incredibly thorough home inspection. He not only took the time to scour every nook and cranny in the home, but he answered all of our questions and made certain that we understood everything presented in his report. We never felt rushed, nor did we feel the need to fain understanding of the facts he presented. We are now confident in our decision to purchase an older home because we have an absolute understanding of the possible problems that may be ahead of us; better yet, we have pre-emptive knowledge to prevent said problems. Thank you Mr. Gaumont!”

Types of Inspections

Pre-Owned Home Inspection

This inspection is tailored to people purchasing a pre-owned home. We help you identify both major and minor deficiencies of the home you are considering. Our findings will be compiled into a detailed report providing you with recommendations on how to repair them and their priorities or urgencies.

Includes: Infrared scanning and RecallChek on appliances.

New Home Pre-Delivery Inspection

This inspection is performed prior to taking possession of your newly constructed home. As an independent inspector, we will often uncover deficiencies that were overlooked by the builder’s inspector. In most cases the deficiencies found can be rectified before you take possession.

Includes: Infrared scanning and RecallChek on appliances.

New Home 11th Month Warranty Inspection

This inspection is designed to help you identify deficiencies that can be corrected prior to the end of your New Home Warranty Program. The 11th Month Inspection is ideal as the home has gone through all four seasons of our Canadian climate including freeze/thaw cycles revealing settling issues, cracking and other deficiencies. We will also help you identify issues that may be the homeowner’s responsibility and offer recommendations on how to keep your home maintained.

Includes: Infrared scanning.

Maintenance Inspection

This inspection will help protect your investment. We create a list of maintenance requirements based on visible conditions of components and list deficiencies found including recommendations on how to repair them and their priorities or urgencies. We can help identify components that need regular maintenance or inspections. We recommend this inspection be performed every 3 to 5 years to help identify and monitor the home’s many components before they become major issues. We also recommend this inspection be performed in the spring or summer, permitting access to roofing and fixtures. This will also allow time for maintenance or repairs to exterior components.

Includes: Infrared scanning.
