Why did you decide to become a home inspector?
SG: “I was renovating century homes in Brantford and wanted more technical knowledge. I signed up for the Carson Dunlop online courses offered through Seneca College. A few years later I saw a job posting looking for Home Inspectors and the rest, as they say, is history!”
What’s the one thing you wish every homeowner knew?
SG: “Every basement will leak under the right conditions.”
What is the most surprising thing you’ve uncovered during a home inspection?
SG: “A family of raccoons huddled on top of an attic hatch to keep warm. They were not impressed when I tried to open the hatch.”
