WETT Certified Inspections

Home inspections have been, traditionally, visual inspections. This has been taken to mean visual to the human eye and readily seen. The newest such tool is the Infrared thermal imaging camera (ITI). We offer ITI free with every inspection Thermal Imaging can also be included in mold testing in Oshawa and all areas within 200 km.




 





 Thermal Imaging 

This may very well be one of the most indispensable value added Home Inspection services we currently offer and we include it free of charge with every paid home inspection.  This service has many valuable uses... if you suspect you have a leak, you have a visual leak but cannot identify it's source, (why tear down walls before we have a look) you suspect that there is major air infiltration that is affecting the energy costs of your home, you see signs of previous moisture, the possibilities are endless.

Using thermal imaging in home inspections will:

Extend the inspector’s ability to inspect the house.
Help find conditions that would otherwise go unnoticed.
Serve as an additional method of verifying defects suspected or found by other means, thus better proving the existence of the defect.
Provide better understanding of other problems with the house, and their causes.

This is relatively new technology and when utilized can greatly reduce the home buyer’s risk of water infiltration which cannot be seen and detected in a typical home inspection.



Asbestos testing in Oshawa has never been easier or more affordable.


 Condominium/Town-house Inspection

Just like any other major purchase item, condominiums and townhouses should also be inspected before you buy.  ASAP's thorough inspection of the condominium or townhouse interior examines the structure, mechanical, and plumbing, electrical and heating/AC systems within the unit, along with any built-in appliances.

Pre-Listing Inspections


Eventually your buyers are going to conduct a Home inspection. You may as well know what they are going to find by getting there first. Having a Home inspection performed ahead of time helps in many other ways:

The seller can choose a certified Home inspector rather than be at the mercy of the buyer's choice of home inspector.
The seller can schedule the home inspection at the seller's convenience.
It might alert the seller of any items of immediate personal concern, such as radon gas or active termite infestation.
The seller can assist the home inspector during the inspection, something normally not done during a buyer's home inspection.
The seller can have the home inspector correct any misstatements in the home inspection report before it is generated.
The report can help the seller realistically price the home if problems exist.
The home inspection report can help the seller substantiate a higher asking price if problems don't exist or have been corrected.
A seller home inspection reveals problems ahead of time which:


might make the home show better.
gives the seller time to make repairs and shop for competitive contractors.
permits the seller to attach repair estimates or paid invoices to the home inspection report.
removes over-inflated buyer procured estimates from the negotiation table.

The home inspection report might alert the seller to any immediate safety issues found, before agents and visitors tour the home.
The home inspection report provides a third-party, unbiased opinion to offer to potential buyers.
A seller home inspection permits a clean home inspection report to be used as a marketing tool.
A seller home inspection is the ultimate gesture in forthrightness on the part of the seller.

The home inspectors report provides full-disclosure protection from future legal claims.Copies of the home inspection report along with receipts for any repairs should be made available to potential buyers.
 

 Home Buyer Inspection

Similar to a Pre-Listing  Home Inspection, a Buyers home inspection is one of the most important steps in the home purchase process. Hiring a certified home inspector is essential to ensure the home inspection is conducted to a recognized standard, providing the buyer with valuable information about the condition of the home.  The goal of the home inspection is to identify any MAJOR problems that are apparent on a visual inspection of the pproperty.  A listing of minor building flaws or minor  repairs and maintenance items may be provided as a courtesy, at the inspector’s discretion. Thermal imaging is included with every home inspection at no additional cost. Areas checked include; recent repairs/ water stains/main floor ceilings.  Water intrusion can be coming from showers/toilets and bathtubs located above or roof leaks and many various other areas that cannot be identified by the naked eye. Please call for any questions regarding thermal imaging. A complete thermal scan of the house is included FREE!
