O ttawa H ome I nspectors O ttawa. com now offers the most comprehensive home inspection available, starting at $250.00

InterNACHI Certified and Better Business Bureau Member.

We start at the roof and  evaluate not only the roof surface, but also the chimney & flashing's where visible, the ventilation system, the electrical service entrance, the plumbing stack, soffitt, fascia, and most other systems or components located on the roof area.

Our next step is to inspect the interior of the home. We use a macro and micro approach to look at both the big picture and we also use an Infrared Camera when conditions are favourable, to do a scan for any possible hidden problems. An infrared camara is not a miracle tool, but is just another tool in the home inspection process and does not totally replace the knowledge and trained eye of a certified home inspector.

   It may however discover hidden problems with insulation or moisture under the right temperature conditions.

We then move inside the house and starting in the basement, we work our way up through the home to the attic. While inside the home, we address such things as the structure, the heating and cooling systems, the electrical and plumbing systems, the interior finishes, the insulation and ventilation, and accessories such as fireplaces.

Our evaluation is then communicated through a detailed computer generated inspection report, which includes descriptions of all the systems in the home and pictures of any problem areas, as well as any recommended improvements. This will help you prioritize the improvements and develop a blueprint for your future in the home.

Best of all, our service doesn't end with the inspection. For a full 5 years after the inspection date, you can call with any additional questions - at no extra charge!
