A Technical Audit is both broader and deeper than a professional Home Inspection. Let’s look at some of the differences.

How Technical Audits are Different:

    1. A Technical Audit uses a team of specialists rather than a single generalist. The specialist goes into more detail than a home inspector, in much the same way that medical specialists go into more detail than a doctor who is a general practitioner. Specialists may take things apart or perform tests that home inspectors cannot.
    2. A Technical Audit can include many things beyond the scope of a home inspection, including air quality evaluations, video scans, swimming pool inspections, termite, radon and mold inspections, infrared imaging evaluations, energy audits and water quality evaluations.

Time Frame

A professional Home Inspection can typically be scheduled and completed within three business days, including delivery of the final report. A Technical Audit requires considerable coordination and typically a minimum of four weeks to compile and deliver all of the reports.

Customized Solutions and Costs

The scope of a professional Home Inspection is well-defined. The scope of the Technical Audit may vary depending on the property and its systems as well as on the needs of our client. The cost of a Home Inspection is typically in the hundreds of dollars. Technical Audits can be in excess of $20,000. A non refundable retainer in the amount of 50% of the fee is required prior to the commencement work. To learn more about the Technical Audit, please call 416-964-9415 (800-268-7070).

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.
