(For the owner)


Very few things in a home are maintenance-free. Regular, adequate and consistent maintenance of a home's structural and mechanical systems is essential in order to maintain and increase its market value over time.


The preventive inspection should be carried out every three to five years, ideally, in order to identify and monitor the conditions of certain components. For example, regular roof inspections give the homeowner enough time to find the right contractor and obtain several quotes (estimates) before a minor repair becomes an emergency.


As an owner, a preventive inspection:


  • Establishes the outline of your home maintenance plan

  • Prioritizes defects your home may have

  • Offers advice and recommendations for how to undertake repairs

  • Helps extend the life of home components

  • Can help reduce energy consumption costs

  • Allows homeowners to avoid major repairs over the years


A building is a profitable investment if you invest in its maintenance!


Getting a preventive inspection is the best thing to do. This reduces your risk of unexpected surprises.  By accompanying the building inspector, you will have a front-row seat to observe the deficiencies in your home.
