A Pre-Purchase Home Inspection

Buying a home is one of the biggest investments that most people make in their lifetime. With so much at stake, it is important to make an informed decision and know exactly what you’re getting into before you sign on the dotted line. This is where pre-purchase home inspections come into play.

A pre-purchase home inspection is a thorough assessment of the property’s condition conducted by a professional inspector prior to the sale. It is designed to identify any potential issues or defects in the home that could be costly to repair or pose a safety hazard in the future. In this way, pre-purchase home inspections provide valuable insight into the condition of the building, allowing potential buyers to make an informed decision and negotiate with the seller accordingly.

Includes a Detailed Inspection of the Exterior Structure, Roof, Concrete, Drainage, and More

At Cabin to Castle, our pre-purchase home inspection services go beyond just a quick glance at the property. Our team of experienced inspectors carefully investigates the exterior structure, roof, concrete, drainage, and more, to provide you with a comprehensive inspection report on the current condition of the property. Our goal is to provide you with the information you need to make informed decisions about your potential purchase.

As a licensed and accredited inspection company, we adhere to strict guidelines set by Service Alberta. This means that our inspectors are nonintrusive during the inspection process, and we do not move any furniture or disassemble any components of the home. We understand that buying a home can be a stressful and overwhelming experience, which is why we work hard to provide our clients with peace of mind.

With a team of two inspectors on every home inspection and even more on multi-housing or commercial projects, we ensure that the property inspection is thorough, giving you the confidence you need to make a well-informed decision.

Frequently Asked Questions

The process of a home or property inspection typically involves scrutinizing the basement and foundation, roof, attic, plumbing and electrical systems, heating and water systems, and the overall structural state of the building. Condo inspection, on the other hand, covers the unit's electrical, plumbing, heating, deck, and more, as well as the garage and roof, if it's accessible.

The inspector's focus is on identifying substandard construction practices and recording any potential repairs or general maintenance concerns. It's critical to note that fire and safety concerns are also among the issues that the inspector will highlight for correction. To book your home inspection, contact us at (780) 487-7177.
