Laser level

We use a laser level to check if there are level variations in the building, these being a potential sign of structural problems.​

Thermal camera

We use a thermal camera to measure the differences in wall temperature, which may indicate, among other things, a breakdown in insulation, condensation or a water infiltration problem.

Moisture metre

A moisture metre allows us to detect excessive humidity at the material level in order to prevent mildew, which can create costs and important health-related problems.


Services


From the pre-purchase inspection to the preventative inspection, passing through the pre-delivery inspection and an air quality analysis, our building inspectors are masters in single-family homes, condos and income properties.

Purchasing a property is an important step in your life. Making a pre-purchase inspection is just as important, as it allows you to identify visible issues or revealing signs of problems, allowing you to avoid nasty surprises before your purchase.

Before heading to the notary for the purchase of a new property, we recommend having it inspected. Whether for a house, a condo, a multiplex or the common areas of a joint ownership, a pre-delivery inspection will protect your purchase.

A preventative inspection is recommended for homeowner associations. This is useful for identifying building issues and planning the work to be done. Contingency funds can then be consequently re-evaluated.

If there are conditions conducive to the development of mildew, it’s possible to take a sample of the material’s surface or to take an air sample in order to validate whether mildew is present. Done during the inspection, this analysis will help you save time and money.


Testimonials


For our first purchase offer, the inspection revealed major shortcomings, all explained in an easy-to-understand fashion. The work was estimated at $30 000, so we exercised our right to withdraw. For the 2nd offer, the work was estimated at about $12 000. We were able to negotiate and get the price reduced to $10 000.

Pierre Pellerin

My building inspector was very good at explaining things to me, and guiding me in the purchase of my first house. I got my inspection report on the same day, which helped me a lot in negotiating.

Stephanie Volpi

Excellent service! Making an appointment was simple, fast and efficient. The inspector was punctual, very professional and made an extensive report, which was given to us on a USB key at the end of the visit.
