What is a Home Inspection?

A home inspection is a visual non-destructive examination of the systems and structure of a home, from the roof to the foundation. Having a home inspected is similar to getting a physical check-up. If a major problem is discovered, the inspector may recommend further evaluation. A home inspection is not a warranty but a method to assist you in understanding the condition of your new home.

How long will it take?

In most cases, an average inspection takes between 2 to 3 hours depending on the size, condition and age of the property.

How to prepare for the Inspection?

  • Set aside 2 to 3 hours for the inspection.
  • Be available to join the inspector
  • Arrange with the home owner to enter the home and have an access to the attic hatch and the furnace room.
