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
Chemical-Free Odour Removal
Selling a house or buying a new home that has a bad odour? Cooking odours, pet odours, smoking, can all turn people off from buying a home. Using ozone shock treatment can remove the odour. Plus it has been known to kill bacteria, salmonella, e-coli, etc. This is a great service to have your new home smelling fresh and clean. Our equipment can treat 6,000 square feet.

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
Rick told me to give 4 stars (as a joke) but that definitely would not be truthful. As first time home buyers we are glad to get Rick as our home inspector. Not only did he deal with my overprotective mother but also he made sure we were aware of every important detail and more. The professional service and his additional expierence in water, mould, and foundations assured us we made the right call. The report is as detailed as the interaction, so we can't forget. We are so thankful to get Rick and we look forward to keeping him as a close contact for friends, family, or our next house.Kenneth Ram5/22/2019
Rick is super helpful, and very knowledgeable. He has helped me look at three different homes and with great service every time!Nadwa Elbadri2/08/2019
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
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
Rick has inspected several homes for us. His reports are complete and informative. He also makes sure to point out the severity of each issue. This can be an issue in the future just keep it in mind moving forward. We have never found an issue that was was there prior to purchase that Rick didn’t already point out.Dale and Lisa McCuaig6/12/2019
Had Rick come do a home inspection and was very pleased with his work. Very knowledgeable and took the time to go through and explain everything thoroughly and make suggestions as we went through the house. Would definitely recommend him and use him again.Tim Swartzentruber1/04/2019
