Just inspected this house in SW Calgary. Got lucky on this one, as you can see it looks like it's about to rain. It didn't. Even in rain, snow, whatever, we are still able to do a complete, thorough and detailed inspection/report, it's nice not to get wet...Read More
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.Read More
Condo Inspection, CalgaryRead More
Just wrapped up a home inspection for a really nice family in Crossfield, Alberta. It was a really nice, detached home. Some people think they don't need a home inspector for a new build, but even for a brand new home, odds are I will still find multiple deficiencies. Yes, they are already inspected by the city, but I am very thorough and will always find issues. As always, customers will be provided a very detailed report with lots of pictures, locations of your shut offs, and maintenance items.Read More
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".
