Buying a house is the largest single investment most people will ever make. By using a professional Upper Canada Home Inspector, we will ensure that the house you want is the house that you get. Have peace of mind by knowing the condition of the house before you buy it. We are Cornwall's oldest professional Home Inspection Company since 1994 and locally owned and operated. We have been recognized by Royal Lepage relocation services. Purchasing a used house is usually the most expensive undertaking a prospective buyer will make during a lifetime. Pre-Purchase Inspections are recommended by CMHC to provide the prospective buyer with enough information about the structure so that they can make an informed decision. Major areas that are inspected include roofing, exterior, and structure, interior, heating, cooling, plumbing, and electrical. The entire house, inside and out, is visually inspected to identify deficiencies. Some of the items commonly found include (but are not limited to) old oil tanks, ungrounded wiring, knob and tube or aluminum wiring, lead supply pipe, old furnaces, questionable structure, foundation cracks, and water infiltration issues. Many new houses are not always all they are cut out to be and many builders' representatives will whisk a new owner through the house and point out minimal issues or paint blemishes etc. Then at the end of the whirlwind tour they will ask you to sign off on your purchase. Upper Canada Home Inspection does 30 day inspections so that you can have peace of mind.
