Why did you decide to become a home inspector?

HW: “After working for a few years with a custom home builder in Whistler, BC, I received an invitation to reconnect with my Ontario roots and do something equally challenging, equally interesting, but a little less stressful on my body (and my clothes!): Home Inspection.”

What’s the one thing you wish every homeowner knew?

HW: “That, despite what you may have heard, Home Inspectors do not have x-ray vision. We are there for you, we are your advocates, and we have a lot of knowledge, but we do have limitations.”

What is the most surprising thing you’ve uncovered during a home inspection?

HW: “One of the homes I was inspecting a few years ago looked straight for the exterior, but as I went inside to continue my inspection I realized there was hardly a single wall or floor that was plumb or level. After a few measurements, I determined the owner had added a layer of siding that was 4 or 5 inches thicker at the bottom of the wall than at the top. The house was more of a parallelogram than a rectangle!”

What Our Clients Say

  • 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.; Homebuyer

  • The overview 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.

    M.S.; Homeowner

  • Quick, easy to book, knowledgeable inspectors, great service from customer service team, quick turnaround, extensive reports with all the details in an easy to read location. Also, strength of the brand. Always a trusted source.
