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 am glad that Rick Inspected my new buy. As a client, I wasn't not only satisfied but also delighted.Professional: I was 5 minutes late but when I reached that spot, I was amazed to see that he was already into work and inspecting roof. He right away took me around the house and shared information about his findings.Knowledgeable: Obviously, this was expected but why i had to mention this is that he went in depth to explain what can be used and what need immediate replacement instead of simply saying replace the whole unit. This actually saves a lot of money.Suggestive: This wasn't his part of job but he made sure he gave suggestions wherever i was thinking to make changes in the house that too with illustrations. Not only this, he included the same in the detailed report as well.I liked his way of working and would highly recommend him for new buys. Thanks again Rick!Janpreet Sethi8/27/2019
I had Rick out for a home inspection on a house I am purchasing. I couldn't be happier with how it went! He was extremely thorough yet efficient, and extremely knowledgeable and could put everything into terms that I could understand clearly. His personality was fantastic and I will highly recommend him to anybody I run into. Thanks again Rick!Brandon Brubacher3/22/2019

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
Rick was very professional. He was very thorough both inside and outside of the home. We learned a lot about the house we purchased. He did not miss anything, even something minor. He made great recommendations on how to prevent minor issue from becoming major ones. He used visual diagrams to show how major utilities worked. We would definitely recommend Rick.Ann Sargent8/03/2019
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
Our home inspection with Rick was thorough and educational. We learned many things while inspecting the house inside and out, basement to attic. Well worth the time and money. Would hire Rick/Licensed Home Inspectors again for future homes. Even he gave us his opinion about new another house. Thank you Rick.sara choi6/18/2019
Rick was awesome from the start to finish. Since he was extremely helpful and took his time explaining and answering all of our questions in a polite and professional manner. I will for sure be recommending him to my friends and family! Thank you for an excellent home inspection once again! P.s The report was very detailed and informative (5/5)Sohail Faeiz11/19/2019
