This is the home inspection that everyone should get when they are purchasing a home. It involves a detailed examination of the home specifically paying attention to Roofing, Exterior, Structure, Insulation, Ventilation, Heating, Cooling, Electrical, Plumbing and Interior.

Apartment CondoCondo Inspection  ♦Is unit 15 falling down?♦

At Access Home Inspection Services we spend over an hour doing a visual, external examination of other units and common areas so you have an independent opinion to either back up or contradict the condo documents. A condo is a complex system made up of many different sub-systems. You'll be spending a considerable amount of time in your condo. If one of these systems or sub-systems is not functioning correctly you may be sitting on a money pit. (Example: Unit 15 has structural issues)
  

thermalThermal Inspection  ♦What's hidden behind your walls♦

This involves the use of a thermal imaging camera, which detects minor differences in surface temperature. This is very useful as it almost allows me to see behind walls. For instance if there is a piece of insulation missing in the attic, the inside surface of the wall will be cooler or hotter, and shows up like a beacon on the thermal imaging camera. This is true for moisture penetration, air leaks, overloaded circuits, damaged in-floor heating, etc.

sewer lineSewer Line Inspection  ♦Discover blockages♦

A scope is sent down the sewer line and records any obstructions or damage to the system. This is particularly useful if you live in a older neighbourhood with mature trees.

new homePre-Occupancy Inspection  ♦Don't buy a lemon♦

Did you know that if you 'take occupancy' of your brand new home, and there is a problem with the house the builder only has to fix it to a warranty standard and you have no choice about this. If you know before you take occupancy that say the roof is substandard and will have problems for the rest of the house's life then you can have ther builder redo the roof, or you can walk away from a lemon. This is an excellent method to ensure that you get what you are paying for.  It involves a detailed examination of the home specifically paying attention to Roofing, Exterior, Structure, Insulation, Ventilation, Heating, Cooling, Electrical, Plumbing, Interior and finishing quality.
