For more detailed information about what it is we inspect (and do not inspect), you can download a copy of the CREIA and/or ASHI Standards of Practice at the links provided below (PDF Reader required).

Once we've completed the inspection, the home inspection report will follow soon afterwards, usually within 24 hours. Our detailed narrative report, which includes photos, takes the guess work out of reading an inspection report, making it easier for you to better understand the condition of the home and assist you in your purchase decision. We speed up the delivery process by sending you the report via email. Or, if you prefer, we can send you a link so that you can download it directly from our website.

We urge you to compare our inspection report with inspection reports issued by the other inspection companies in the area. You may be surprised to discover that many companies are still issuing their customers reports commonly referred to as "checklists". Checklist reports are considered obsolete, and do not provide you with the level of information you need to make a fully informed purchase decision.
