What does a Home Inspection mean?
A home inspection is a limited, non-invasive examination of the condition of a home, often in connection with the sale of that home. Home inspections are conducted by a home inspector who has the training and certifications to perform such inspections. The inspector prepares and delivers to the client a detailed report of findings. The client then uses the knowledge gained to make informed decisions about their pending real estate purchase. The home inspector describes the condition of the home at the time of inspection but does not guarantee future condition, efficiency, or life expectancy of systems or component.
In Alberta in order to be a Home Inspector you must be trained and Licensed within the Province to operate or conduct Inspections.
We are generalists that refer you to a specialist if need be. For all the systems in your house if you were to have a specialist such as an, Electrician, Plumber, Gas fitter, general contractor, Engineer or HVAC come in separately do an inspection the cost would be in the thousands.
How long does it take? Do I need to be there?
A typical inspection can take anywhere from 2 to 3.5 hrs. After which a verbal summary will be given to you then a report emailed to you the same day. I would prefer you were there for at least part of the inspection as the province of Alberta requires you to read and physically sign the contract. You will see the contract electronically before the inspection as well a copy is in the “Library” tab on this site.
What if you discover a problem?
There is no perfect house. Just because we discover a problem doesn’t mean you shouldn’t buy the home only that you will have to address some issues and decide how your budget will be able to handle it.
What do I do once I get the report?
Take your time and read it over. This report is yours and will not be shown or shared with anyone but you. If you have questions you just need to ask.
