To be a good home inspector you have to know the building codes which are a minimum standard required by the Province of Ontario. Knowledge by itself is not good enough, experience only comes from the time and training required to apply them to a specific application, such as building inspections.

Having inspected over 5,000 residential properties and hundreds of Commercial & Industrial properties has given us a huge referral network and customer base of which we are proud to represent.  Our knowledge and experience has helped many home owners and investors make sound business and investment decisions based on the comprehensive findings we have provided.

I have personally built & sold new homes, renovated older homes and apartments. I was a registered builder with HUDAC, which was the regulating agencies for all home builders in Ontario. After spending some years as a private contractor I joined the Fire Services and continued until retirement. While working for the government I learned Fire Inspections, both Federal and Provincial courses. I obtained 3 levels of Arson Investigation training and obtained by Certified Building Code Certification with the Ontario Building Officials Association. I was instrumental in assessing older buildings and developing a strategy for ensuring that safety and code related issues were updated. My last 7 years of government experience was as supervisor of Project Reviews, where I reviewed plans from architects and designers, and inspected all phases of construction until completion. These projects ranged from 10,000 dollar buildings up to 13 million dollar apartment buildings.
