Home Inspections by RDC

Buying a house is one of the most significant moves you will make in your lifetime!

The decision to buy a home is seldom easy- it's major, complex and very personal.

The most common concerns include: Is this house sound?  Is it in good repair?  Has it been properly maintained?  Does is need a new roof?  Is it properly insulated?  How is the wiring?  And so on . . . You may also be concerned about what kind of repairs may be in order and what can be expected in the way of costs?

Here are some typical questions and their answers:

Q. Why do I need a home inspection?

A. The purchase of a home is probably the largest single investment you will ever make, and you should have a clear understanding of what you are about to purchase.  A home inspection is a thorough, comprehensive, visual examination of the physical structure and systems of a home or building.  It covers hundreds of items . . . everything from the basement to the roof, including the electrical, heating and plumbing systems, the foundation walls, the insulation, ventilation system, eavestroughing, attic, roof, etc.  The professional home inspector then interprets to you what he finds, so that you will be able to make your decision knowledgeably and confidently.    

Q. What kind of Home Inspector should you call?

A. Call a qualified Home Inspector associated with the professional organization called The Association of Science and Engineering Technology Professionals of Alberta (.ASET) and International Association of Certified Home Inspectors of Canada (InterNACHI). These ASET & InterNACHI affiliated inspectors have satisfied all the educational and experience criteria, and perform their inspections in accordance with the high Standards of Practice and Code of Ethics of ASET & InterNACHI, also carry errors and omissions insurance . Call an inspector who encourages you to accompany him on the inspection tour, and who provides a complete, written report of all his findings.

Q. Why choose you for a home inspection?

A.  We offer more than an inspection.  Our inspection services include foundation to roof and everything in between.  We also offer tips on energy saving methods!

Our clients are urged to join in on the inspection tour to learn more about the house they are considering purchasing.

Q. Will you answer my questions?

A. As a qualified building inspector, I offer you, as a prospective owner, a chance to familiarize yourself with your property's technical features.

An inspection represents an expert and unbiased assessment of the house itself- all you really need to know about all the things you are least apt to be familiar with.

A home inspection can be arranged 7 days a week.  A written summary of the findings will be presented at the time of inspection.

A home inspection can make a difficult decision that much simpler.   For your modest fee, the return is high and the information you have received will give you peace of mind.

Protect your investment.  Inspect before you purchase!
