Every Inspection Includes Complimentary:
Visual Mould Inspection
Outside of fit, form and function of the home/building, typically the biggest issue is moisture and mould problems. Hiring an inspector that is a certified IICRC Water Restoration, Moisture Detection and Mould Remediation technician can save you thousands down the line.
Infrared Thermal Imaging
Using an infrared camera our inspections can help you locate moisture inside walls, ceilings and floors. These powerful cameras are also helpful in finding missing insulation, overheating electrical problems, plumbing leaks, and heat and air conditioning air leakage.
Digital Moisture Detection
Moisture in your home can lead to mould within 48 to 72 hours. Using digital moisture detection we are able to determine the amount of moisture in wood, drywall etc and prescribe a remediation process.

Mould Air Quality Testing
Whether it's a new home or an older home, the potential for mould in the home is always a possibility. Health risks can increase with the amount of mould spores in the air. The symptoms start out as flu like symptoms that can later lead to long term health effects. Having the home tested for mould is a service your inspector provides. This can be added to your home inspection at the time of the inspection. Cost includes full lab report (2 business days for results.
On average, 30 to 50% of the attics we inspect have mould in them. For many clients the presence of mould in the attic can be a deal breaker. Your inspector can not only determine the reason the mould is present; we can now remove it. Minimum charge for this service is $400, then $1 to $2 per square foot. Please note; our home/ building inspection is not to be used as a vehicle to obtain additional revenue. Please obtain quotes from at least 3 other companies

I have had 2 houses inspected by Rick, and both times I was very impressed with the thoroughness of the inspection as well as the well documented report that he sends afterwards. He is accommodating, friendly and knowledgeable. I will be using his service as long as I have a need for it. Thanks Rick!Brad Leger9/27/2019
I have used Rick's inspection services for several homes. He does a through job and uses all the latest tools to properly assess the home. His inspections take 3-4 hours and are worth the time. He educates the buyers also with patience. He has lots of experience about homes and is a true professional in his field.Aizad Ahmad12/21/2018
We couldn't have been happier to have Rick inspect our new home. As a first time home buyer, it's important to have an inspector who helps educate and provide reason to each detail of the inspection. Rick was able to clearly communicate each step of the inspection and provide the "why" to his results. I would highly recommend Rick to anyone looking for an honest inspection of their home.Ron Jelenski6/03/2019

HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!Rick is an AWESOME home inspector!! I don't have enough words to exactly express his work but for us it was like someone introduced to our own home and in a very efficient, informative way. It's our first home in Canada and we were fairly new to house structures here and he explained EVERYTHING. I felt like we now know every nook and cranny of our house. Very detailed, very professional, careful to acknowledge the client's level of knowledge and explain accordingly. So far whoever we spoke to about our home inspection said, "looks like he was through and covered everything". We are very happy we chose Rick for our home inspection, not to mention the mini course he gave for our hot tub, not because it was part of inspection but because he owns one and knew about it. I know I am missing a lot of things I could write here but it's a review, not a novel :). I would have given 100 stars if I could but there's space for only 5!!Harshita Patel Kanani11/19/2019
Rick was awesome to work with, he explained things to me in such an easy to understand way... he had so many great tips and ideas for how to repair things the home needed, how to prevent common things that happen to first time home buyers and also made stuff that came up seem not so scary! Couldn't be more happy or impressed by him and would recommend again in a heart beat!Maddie Fraser5/23/2019
Our first home in Canada - we were really nervous and had no idea what to expect, what to look for or how anything worked! Rick was amazing, he walked me through every step, explained how everything worked, what was normal (or not) and highlighted things we should be looking out for. He used really neat tools and was very hands on. Highly recommend him.Annamarie van Zyl7/30/2019
