Sage Hill, Calgary Home Inspection

Inspected this really nice attached home in Sage Hill, Calgary, Alberta.   Being a Calgary home inspector, it's kinda nice when you inspect a home and they have pets there.... Just make sure to let us know before hand so we don't leave any doors open.

Home Inspection Find

On a recent home inspection there was a tree that was too close to the home.   Not only was it too close to the home, it was touching a chimney.   It's very important to maintain seperation from your chimney to any combustible materials.   You also don't want your vegetation to be touching your soffits.   As a home inspector I recommend they trim there tree.

Glengarry Calgary Home Inspector
Carstairs, Alberta Home Inspection

As a home inspector I don't mind a little drive out of town, especially when it's for some of the best clients.   Even though this home inspection was on a new construction home, our thorough, detailed inspection report still includes a fair amount of issues that would otherwise go undetected.  This was a beautiful house, but it wouldn't have taken the best home inspector to find some of the obvious issues.   However, your average homeowner wouldn't of caught some of them.   

 

This week we have done home inspections in Calgary, Carstairs and Crossfield.....just need to do some home inspections in Chestermere, Canmore, Camrose, Caroline  Carseland, Coaldale, and Cremona and we will have covered all the C's!  (except for a bunch of other places that start with C..... There's a lot)

Thermal Imaging during a home inspection...What it can uncover.

Thermography, In-fared or Thermal Imaging, has been around for many years now. I personally think this should be a must when you are doing a home inspection as it provides so much value to my clients which is why I include it Free with every inspection.  It a great way to narrow down issues during a home inspection, and lets face it, its pretty cool as well. 

When I was a certified with the FLIR Thermography training it was mind-blowing to find out all of the things these cameras are used for.  Everything from electrical to now diagnosing cancer.  Technology is a wonderful thing isn't it.

I figured because its such an interesting topic I wanted to share how I use thermal imaging during my inspections to find my prey...The "construction defect".
