The scope of a home inspection is well-defined by the OAHI Standards of Practice. Home inspection is a professional consulting service offered by trained professionals who evaluate homes and buildings of various sizes. The work is often done in conjunction with a real estate transaction, although it can be done anytime. It focuses on the performance of the home, rather than cosmetic, code or design issues.
Fast turnaround time from request; thorough, good and honest advice re fix-ups aspects and a great reputation for prospective home buyers. One of our client purchasers called Carson Dunlop the ‘Cadillac of home inspections’!

I appreciate that the Carson Dunlop inspectors are thorough and not only will bring items of concern to the attention of my buyers but also contextualize their findings to demonstrate how a home compares to neighbouring homes.
B.W.; Real Estate Agent
The inspector was very thorough and took the time to explain everything; the value-added extras such as the report on the school district, drug house check, and recalled appliance checks were invaluable added surprises.
M.J.; Home Buyer
The bottom line summary is a great idea, clearly identifies what the homeowner needs to focus on first. The breakdown of the report is great. Going section by section I can clearly see each component with the recommendations including diagrams and pictures of my personal home. The report looks great and is easy to read. It’s very useful having this document knowing that I can refer to it at any time in the future should an issue arise with my house.
