At DSM Property Services we offer the following Inspection services along with a detailed and easy-to-read same day report.
FIND OUT HOW THERMAL IMAGING CAN ENHANCE THE INSPECTION PROCESS
Buyers invest in pre-purchase inspections to provide them with information on the present
condition of the home and to address any potential deficiencies in the home and property.
This includes an inspection of all the main elements and systems of the home.
Pre-Delivery Inspection (PDI)
Using an independent home inspector to inspect and validate the condition of a newly
constructed home is important before taking ownership. It is far easier to have the builder
address and correct issues before the move-in day.
New Home Warranty Inspection (Tarion)
This inspection is carried out on newly constructed homes between 30 days and 1 year of
owning the home. A new Home Warranty Inspection can save you the costs of future repairs or
maintenance that could otherwise be covered under the New Home Warranty Program. Make
sure you check the expiration date and that you book an inspection within this time period.
MAINTENANCE AND SAFETY INSPECTION
Homeowners usually only address or repair things once they break. A maintenance and safety
inspection addresses the true condition of all of your home's structural and mechanical systems. The
inspection helps you to avoid major future repairs, extends the life of a home's many components,
allows you to prioritize the deficiencies, and ensures that your home's value increases over time.
Pre-listing inspections are performed for sellers prior to selling a home. They are useful for addressing
any potential issues prior to selling the home. These inspections can also increase the sales price of
the home and reduce the time the home is on the market.
If you are buying a home with a pool, we can provide an overall inspection on the condition of the
pool and its components and provide tips for maintenance.
Thermal Imaging is a non-invasive way of evaluating temperature variation of a surface, which
can be interpreted by the home inspector to identify problems in structure, moisture content
and air leakage. It can identify hidden heating and cooling losses, moisture intrusion, inadequate
or non-existent insulation, plumbing and basement leaks, and poor construction. If the home has
a finished basement, a thermographic scan is highly recommended. This service is part of our
Premium Home Inspection.
