what is a home MAINTENANCE inspection?
A maintenance inspection is essentially the same as a standard home inspection, but the inspection is done for the current owner. Most of these homeowners have been in their homes for over three years, and they may or may not have had their home inspected at the time they purchased it. One small difference between a buyers inspection and a home maintenance inspection is that we do not test the appliances during a maintenance inspection. Homeowners already know about any issues with their appliances. this is a good time to have any questions ANSWERED about anything you DISCOVERED after you have moved in.
Another difference between a buyers inspection and a homeowner maintenance inspection is that we sometimes go a little ‘Mike Holmes‘ on the house by cutting into things, or taking things apart that we wouldn’t normally do for a traditional home inspection. While a traditional buyers inspection is subject to a purchase agreement with standard language saying it’s a non-invasive inspection, we don’t have those types of limitations with a maintenance inspection. Usually, the homeowner is right there with me for the maintenance inspection. If I’m concerned about water intrusion below that basement cabinet in the corner, I’ll ask the owner for permission to drill a hole in the back of the cabinet to insert a BORE-SCOPE camera to check it out.
if you're a homeowner of a cottage or VACATION home on lake ontario or the st LAWRENCE river, and don't live locally, or perhaps you just don't have the time to keep an eye on your property the way you would like, a home MAINTENANCE inspection is a great way to make sure nothing goes unseen and becomes a costly repair.

what is a 11th month WARRANTY INSPECTION?
did you just buy a new home or have your dream home built?
a home will do most of its SETTLING in the first year of its life after construction. most building products, if they are to fail, normally tend to fail within the first year of construction.
for these reasons, most home builders offer a one year warranty on the CONSTRUCTION of your new home. you can take advantage of this opportunity and use your warranty to have any issues or defects corrected before your WARRANTY runs out at no cost to you. i can conduct a full Certified professional home inspection on your new home, and just the same as i would with a home buyer inspection, covering all the same major COMPONENTS being inspected. This will ALERT you to any issues or material defects now, saving you a costly repair years down the road.
