Test your sump pump every month.

It is easy and it will save you a lot of headaches and cost if it breaks down and you don't know about it.🤕

This is a standard sump pump with a floater switch. Just remove the cover and lift the floater.😉

Furnaces don't last forever but with proper maintenance they can last longer!!

This furnace is a 2008 installation and is full of dust, debris and rust.

Would you leave your car to run without regular service?

"Why do I have frost in my attic?"
The answer is HEAT LOSS.

This is a fairly new house, but this type of blown-in insulation settles quite fast. Plus, those small gaps at the attic hatch will also allow heat loss.

If this does not get addressed, expect to see mold growth on the roof structure.

If as a buyer you hire an inspector who says he can do a 3000 sq ft house in 45 minutes, then thats not an inspection. 🤨🤨

You get what you pay for!!😱😱

It is estimated that ONLY about 20% of houses sold in 2021 had an inspection done. 😱😱😱

You may have waived the inspection condition, but that doesn't mean that you CAN'T have an inspection done!!🤨🤨🤨

You can have an inspection done after possession so that you are aware of the condition of your home. If there is an issue don't you want to know so that you can address it?👍👍👍

Amateurs at work. These people tried to solve a problem and created a much bigger one.

IMAGINE IF THIS BUYER DID NOT DO AN INSPECTION!!!!🤨

House wrap was used as foundation damp proofing. House wrap is used at the exterior of the house before installing the siding. All it does is stop exterior air from penetrating the home.

The entire installation is wrong and hopefully it wasn't done in the finished part of the basement.

When is everyone going to realize that an inspection is not a luxury, but a necessity. Buyers, protect yourselves!!!

Everyone wants to rent out the basement, but the safety of the inhabitants has to be a priority

When we have a bedroom in the basement there has to be a means of egress or escape, for those people living in that bedroom, whether that basement apartment is "legal" or not.

This one not only is small but it is also mostly blocked by the concrete patio. (The whole patio thing is another story).

Sump pumps should be tested frequently because they will just stop working without any notice.

This is how you test a pedestal type sump pump. Easy right?👍

What is the R value of the insulation?

That is a very typical question we get during an inspection and it is a subject that confuses many people.

Take this one for example: The R value is R40 on the date the insulation was installed in 2011. That does not mean that this insulation has an R value of 40 now, 10 years later.

Insulation will settle over time, will move or be moved, therefore the R value does not stay the same

Insulation is one of those things that needs update every few years

Did you know that we have the ability to put videos on our reports?.😲

This is what it means to work with a professional Inspection company that uses sophisticated software and not a cheap part timer who uses Microsoft Word.😉

In this video we are showing the clients how to operate the jets, because they were not present at the inspection.#homeinspection , #ProfessionalInspector , #inspectionservicesgroup , #realtor , #realtorlife , #realestate , #torontorealestate , #gtarealestate , #vaughanrealestate , #caledonrealestate , #mississaugarealestate , #miltonrealestate , #oakvillerealestate , #burlingtonrealestate , #durhamrealestate

How is a Tarion Warranty inspection different from a typical Resale home inspection?

A Tarion Warranty inspection is performed according to the Tarion Construction Performance Guidelines and as such includes a lot of cosmetic items, in addition to the functionality of the components and some code compliance items.

A typical Resale Home Inspection only makes reference to functionality and safety.

Epic fail!! New build home with three open sewer drains in the basement. It passed the plumbing inspection, as per city documents.🤔 ... See MoreSee Less

Another new construction plumbing leak! 💧💧

Don't trust that the builder has tested everything and that everything is perfect because"it is a brand new home".

The Pre delivery Inspection is NOT an inspection of the property. It is just an opportunity to see that the builder installed the right door handles and the paint and floors are the correct ones.

Thousands of new homes are built every year and very few undergo quality control.
