Residential Plumbing Inspection
Every home has plumbing, and we’re devoted to checking these systems thoroughly. We’ll check for leaks at the water heater, under sinks, toilets, and bathing units. Our team of certified home inspectors will look for backflow prevention devices and inspect sump pits and pumps when present.
The use of our thermal imaging technology proves extremely helpful when inspecting plumbing fixtures, drains, and supply lines for leaks, as they are often hidden behind drywall. Once our plumbing inspections are finished, you can have peace of mind knowing that all potential problems with your system will be revealed so that you can take action to resolve them.
Home Interior and Exterior Inspection
Home Exterior Inspections
The outside of your property is an important part of both your home’s functionality and its curb appeal, which is why we offer home exterior inspections to ensure that it’s in perfect condition. We inspect the siding, visible exterior foundation walls, doors, windows, garages, porches, decks, driveways, walkways, grading around structures, vegetation, fence lines, retaining walls, gutters, downspouts, and more. In other words, our residential inspection services will have all corners of your home’s exterior covered.
Home Interior Inspections
Our residential inspectors will examine the interior of your home as thoroughly as they do the exterior. Throughout the inspection process, we inspect flooring, walls, ceilings, stairways, doors, cabinets, and counters. With our extensive experience in mold and asbestos testing, we know where to look in search of any evidence of water damage, mold, and possible asbestos-containing materials. During our home interior inspections, we also test appliances that are installed to ensure they are functioning properly.
Our Home Inspections in Calgary, Alberta, Also Include:
Given how important a reliable roof is for the safety of your family, we pay very close attention during our roofing inspections to identify any potential problems that may need to be resolved. We inspect roof penetration points such as chimneys and roof vents, skylights, weather hoods, mastheads, flashings, and other areas of the roofline to ensure proper installation methods are employed and are leak free.
We will also inspect the foundations of structures, floors (including beams), columns, joists, and the roofing structure and inspect crawlspaces and attics when accessible.
During our home insulation inspections, we check to ensure that there is adequate insulation in your attic space, including inspecting for vapor barriers. When this is not visible to the naked eye, we use our thermal imaging cameras to scan for any abnormalities in the walls of the structure. Ensuring proper ventilation in attics and crawl spaces is vital for the health of structures, which is why we also perform thorough home ventilation inspections.
Depending if the structure has overhead or underground services, we will be inspecting mast heads on the exterior to ensure they are safely installed and do not allow for moisture intrusion. We remove the “dead front” (cover) from electrical panels so that we can inspect the circuit wiring and overcurrent protection devices (breakers). We check for proper receptacle (plugs) wiring at all readily available receptacles, the presence of aluminum wiring, AFCI, and GFCI protection devices, and that all readily accessible switches and lights are functioning properly.
Inspecting the main source of heat in your home is vital, whether it is a furnace, boiler, or baseboard heater, to ensure that it can provide warmth during the coldest nights of the year. We check to make sure the vent piping is properly installed and working adequately.
Our team also uses both carbon monoxide detectors and combustible gas detectors during our heating inspection to ensure no harmful gasses are present. When the weather permits, we will also test and inspect A/C units.
