Jeff Fleming is a licensed Home Inspector and Civil Engineering Technologist. He brings to Certa a unique background that offers knowledge and experience in a wide range of areas associated with the industry. Jeff grew up in central Ontario in an area just north of Barrie where he developed his skills working in various industries associated with residential construction. Over the years Jeff noticed a lot of inconsistencies in the quality construction from one site to the next. “It may have been my intensive need for perfection or maybe just my inability to turn a blind eye,” (says Jeff), but it was this observation that sparked a passion.
Jeff served in the Military with The Princess Patricia’s Canadian Light Infantry, serving a Tour in Afghanistan in 2006. After returning to Canada, Jeff left the military and briefly worked in Alberta’s Oilfields. This quickly changed when the price of oil dropped causing Jeff to return to Ontario and take work in Ontario’s ever-booming housing industry. During this time, he furthered his education by taking a 3-year Civil Engineering Technologist program through Georgian College. After completing this program, Jeff then went on to focus his expertise in Home Inspections through completing the Canadian Institute of Home Inspectors training program.
“I first wanted to get educated on the science and engineering aspects of these systems before I felt I could confidently identify and educate others. Most people simply do not have the knowledge or the time to properly inspect the vast components that make up a home”.
Certa has welcomed Jeff into their growing family of professionals and looks forward to the versatile and capable representatives Certa Property Inspections is known for.
