It is very important to understand that we look for the positive features of the house
as well as any required repairs or upgrades.
A Home does not pass or fail an inspection.
Our Home inspection is strictly confidential and the report belongs to the client.
A more detailed explanation of what is inspected along limitations
are more particularly described in the Standards of Practice
of Canadian Association of Home and Property Inspectors.
Our Building Science Expert not only points out concerns, but also
educate the purchasers about the Home systems and proper maintenance.
Canadian Real Estate Association(CREA), Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation(CMHC),
Ontario Real Estate Association (OREA) and Toronto Real Estate Board(TREB) recommend
Registered Home INSPECTORS under the 1994 Province Of Ontario Home Inspectors Act .
All of our expert Home Inspectors are well experienced and
fully qualified Registered Home Inspectors and members of
Canadian Association of Home and Property Inspectors- Ontario(CAHPI-ON)
Ontario Association of Home Inspectors (OAHI)
& American Society of Home Inspectors (ASHI) Certified Inspectors,
and dedicated to continually upgrade their knowledge and education
by attending Professional educational seminars, conferences and meetings, every year.
CAHPI is the only national non-profit Professional organization in Canada that rigorously tests Home inspectors about
their technical knowledge and diagnostic expertise prior to joining the organization as well as requiring
continuing education after admission to keep current with new technology and building practices.
Membership in OAHI and the Registered Home Inspector designation
are earned credentials which attest to an inspector's competence and professionalism.
To earn the right to be Registered Home Inspectors (RHI),
inspectors must demonstrate to the OAHI that they have a broad knowledge of construction
and building practices in Ontario and that they have acquired three components for qualification:
basic skills specific to the practice of Home inspection; technical background acquired through education and
experience related to building science; and practical Home inspection experience
through the performance of at least 200 Home inspections to OAHI Standards..
Our Expert Inspectors are extremely knowledgeable
of Greater Toronto Area neighbourhood trends and problems over the past years
as well as the quality and reputation of most local builders.
The majority of construction tasks (foundation, framing, plumbing, electrical, etc.) are usually subcontracted out to
the lowest bidder, with speed, not quality being an important consideration for the builder. With many separate activities
going on at the same time, it's nearly impossible for the builder to monitor all phases of the home construction.
Since the 1980s, when Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC) ended its consumer protection role
through construction inspections, housing quality has suffered. For instance, CMHC estimates that more than
65,000 homes in B.C. suffered serious water infiltration problems in B.C.’s leaky condo crisis of the 1990s –
a crisis that continues to this day. While B.C.’s crisis is perhaps the best known disaster in Canadian history,
defective homes are a serious problem across Canada.
In 2005, the Canadian Home Builders’ Association (CHBA) estimated that 10 per cent of
Canada’s builders are problematic. Other estimates find 20 per cent to 25 per cent of
home builders as problematic. Although there are good builders in Canada, consumers and
Realtors have no reliable means of knowing who they are. Consumers who find themselves with
a defective home and an unresponsive builder naturally turn to their home warranty program for assistance.
This too can be problematic. In Ontario, for example, new home purchasers face a mandatory payment to TARION for
warranty coverage. Purchasers should recognize TARION as an insurance company that will require that
you prove your claim. TARION does not serve as an advocate for purchaser. The TARION claim process is
complicated, and, therefore, must be pursued with great care in order to avoid pitfalls.
Municipal government officials involved in the home construction process usually acknowledge home construction
industry and warranty program problems, but often simply advise the homeowner that they can settle their issues
through civil litigation. Given the time and high costs involved in the legal system with no guarantees of success,
the courts are not a viable option for most Canadians.
Given a system that is not conducive to construction dispute resolution, many homeowners conclude that
they have no option but to quietly sell their flawed homes without disclosing the known problems to potential purchasers,
despite the fact that sellers are required by law to disclose known defects. Home buyers protect their investment by
retaining a competent registered home inspector to inspect the home, regardless of whether it is newly built
or a resale home. While some problems may remain hidden behind drywall,
a trained registered home inspector can often detect problems unrecognizable to the average consumer.
We are also participating inspectors for the Federal Government Relocation Program.
Since every house is unique, our custom narrative report in plain easy to understand language,
not just a check list report of items inspected, is far more comprehensive.
We are dedicated to help our clients with their due diligence to make sound real estate decisions
Our Inspection Expert provides important maintenance advice and follow up support to help first time
get acquainted with their new Home.
Expert Building Inspection is our only business.
Our Building Science Experts do not perform building repairs or building renovations.
We do not refer clients to specific contractors
Our Building Science Experts have completed thousands of Commercial, Industrial, Institutional &
Residential Building Inspections, and Home Inspections in Greater Toronto Area.
An inspector does not obtain a working knowledge of every system in a Home or commercial property by
attending a few days course, or reading a few books. It comes from field experience and training. Neither
warranties nor insurance policies can take the place of knowledge and experience gained from a hands-on
education -- and we have it.
We have helped prospective Home buyers avoid costly mistakes.
We are Open Seven Days a Week.
We guarantee that our well experienced and qualified Home inspectors
will give you their very Best effort. Our mission is to look out for the Best interest of our client by inspecting
every Home as if we are the ones buying the Home.
Our commitment to our clients has allowed us to become a leader in building inspection industry.
Our experience and reputation sets us apart from all the rest!
