The home

At DSM Property Services our home inspections provide a thorough, detailed and professional evaluation of all major components and systems of a home in accordance with the OAHI Standards of Practice and Code of Conduct.

Inspections typically take two to three hours to perform. It can vary depending on the size of the home, the condition of the home and accessibility to mechanical systems. Every possible effort is made to access difficult-to-reach areas such as the attic, crawl spaces and the roof. Safety is an important factor in determining if such areas can be accessed. Often when direct accessibility is not an option (due to weather, slope or height factors), these areas can be photographed with special tools that are specific for this use.

It is important to understand how your prospective home works from a technical standpoint. It is therefore strongly recommended that you participate in the inspection process to gain a better understanding of the findings that will be included in the report. If you have any questions or concerns about the property, that is also the best time to get some answers. The Inspector will take the time to explain the findings and also provide you with some maintenance tips for items found throughout the home.
