WAINWRIGHT HOME INSPECTIONS
Serving Wainwright and Surrounding Areas
Prior to getting my inspectors license in Alberta, I have been a professional firefighter since 2007 which I continue to proudly serve at. Before my firefighting career I worked in the construction and property maintenance industry, taking a plumbing apprenticeship building new construction and was the caretaker for a large apartment complex as well as high rise buildings. I am a Graduate of the Carson Dunlop Home Inspection training as well as WETT Inc wood burning systems level 1, and am a Certified Professional Inspector with the International Association of Certified Home Inspectors (Inter-NACHI) and follow their Standards Of Practice.
What is a home inspection and why would I get one done?
A home inspection is a non-invasive, thorough investigation of every component of your future home by an experienced, well trained inspector. Think of a home inspection like a visit to your GP doctor. An inspector will test all components of the home (heating system, plumbing, A/C, electrical, structure, roof, exterior, interior) and give you a detailed report containing everything you and/or your insurance company needs to know. Any deficiencies will be noted and photographed with advice on how to resolve the problem. The proper R value of your attic insulation will be assessed, and a remaining service life estimate of all components is given in the report (furnace, hot water tank, roof covering).
As it is a non-invasive procedure, just like your GP doctor noticing a major problem during your checkup....if your inspector notices a serious defect, you will be referred to a specialist for further investigation. An example would be an odd burn pattern on a furnace or cracked heat exchanger, you will be advised to have a licensed technician inspect that system further.
