Buyer’s home inspections and pre-listing home inspections should be fine-tuned to meet your unique needs.
While the property might look great – you’ve no doubt been told it’s “excellent condition” – it’s essential to get a second opinion of an industry expert. Freshly painted areas could in fact be hiding rotting frames, or flaws that will need the expensive maintenance.
To keep protected, your inspector will be on the lookout for defects and homeowner cover-ups to determine the actual extent of the damage. They’ll bring ladders, powerful torches and specialist devices to inspect visible areas. They’ll even use radar and thermal equipment to check inside the walls for leaks, moisture and termites.
And unlike some other inspection services that will charge you extra for these, they’re all included in our base cost.

Most Common Problems Found by Home Inspectors
Why Are the Property Inspections Carried Out?
The Alberta Home Inspection are carried out to give you an idea about the condition of the property.
Here are the most common problems that the home inspectors find.
Older and Damaged Roofs
The roof damage usually includes brittle or curled shingles, missing or broken tiles and cracks around vents. This can also allow water into the home, causing further damage.
Improper and Undersized Electrical Wiring
Open junction boxes, inadequate overload protection, reverse polarity (placing the ‘hot’ and ‘neutral’ wires on the wrong terminal), inadequate amperage and dangerous wiring connections.
Improper Surface Grading and Damage
If left untreated, the poor grading or poor drainage can result in water seeping into the home and causing foundation issues along with the other problems.
Deficient and Older Heating Systems
Broken or malfunctioning controls, blocked chimneys, unsafe exhaust and cracked heat exchangers are also some common problems found during house inspections. These conditions represent more than simply inefficient heating. They are a major health and safety hazard.
Clogged and bent gutters are some of the common problems discovered during the property inspections in Alberta. Damaged gutters can turn into a major issue if left untreated.
Certain properties may even have structural problems pertaining to foundation walls, floor beams, rafters, windows and doors. Though, these structural problems are more common in older constructions and not the newly- built ones.
Leaks that are underneath sinks and around the toilets are fairly common due to the slow drainage system and inadequate water pressure.
