Being a licensed and trained home inspector, we can spot many areas of concern like damaged cut joists, improper renovations or installations that may make the home unsafe. We offer pre sale, pre purchase inspection, and pre-renovation inspection. Our main focus is to make sure the residence is safe and structurally sound for you and your loved ones.
Whether I am inspecting a newer or an older home I always find some concerns because we inspect so many elements within the home, like roofing, exterior, basement, structure, electrical, plumbing, heating, air conditioning, interior, and attic. We use many tools like thermal imaging to find air leaks, water leaks, insulation voids, and over heated circuits within the walls.
Because we look at multiple elements around and within the home, the pre purchase inspection can become quite daunting as we will discuss many items. We will go through the pictures at the end of the inspection with you and discuss the key points of concern in order to refresh your memory and allow you to move forward whether you want to proceed with the purchase.
A pre-purchase house inspection, performed by a professional, is a visual examination of the accessible areas of a house to provide an accurate evaluation of the house’s condition at the time. House inspections are designed to disclose defects in the property that could materially affect its safety, livability or resale value. They are not meant to disclose cosmetic defects. The evaluation is presented to the buyer in a comprehensive report so buyers are fully informed of the home’s condition prior to purchase.
It is a good idea for the customer to be present at the pre-purchase inspection because it provides greater insight on the condition of the home. BBHI, Calgary allows you to be fully informed about the home and feel confident about your decisions. Your pre purchase home inspection report will contain all the details you need to make an informed decision.
