Crossfield, Alberta Home Inspection

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.

Heritage Pointe Home Inspection

Just finished a home inspection in Heritage Pointe, Calgary. As a home inspector in Calgary I want to ensure that clients are walked through the process and educated as we move through the home. Every inspection is different and unique so my construction background always helps catch items that odds are could be missed without that experience.

Just Inspected this 2 bedroom condo in Inglewood, Calgary

Inspected this brand new 2 bedroom condo in inglewood, calgary.  We had a fun time putting up green tape for the deficiencies the builder needed to fix.  Having worked in new home construction for many years, it is important to have an inspector that can point out deficiencies so the new owner doesn't have to deal with them in the future.

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".
