About the Home Inspection
We follow the standards of practice determined by the Canadian Standards Association (CSA) A770:16 National Standard of Canada, which specify the minimum requirements for a home inspection, and provides information for performing an inspection on dwellings.
Inspections typically take 3 to 4 hours to complete, which varies depending on the size and style of property. Home inspections are non-invasive.
Many parts of a home inspection are performed primarily through visual diagnosis to identify and show potential concerns through the use of photographs and written statements in a report.
Several specialty tools are also used to create an accurate report including the thermal imaging camera. Thermal images show potential issues that are not visible such as presence of insulation and vapour barrier, water infiltration/leaks, and many others.
Thermal imaging has become an industry standard.
