HOME INSPECTIONS FOR THE NEW HOME BUYER:

At the pre-delivery stage or prior to the expiry of your builder's warranty.

New houses being built in sub-divisions provide work for a surprisingly large number of tradesmen and sub-contractors, all of who are responsible to the builder. Very often up to twenty individual small companies participate in the construction of a new house. One can see how deficiencies or omissions in construction can often be overlooked. The Ontario New Home Warranty Program works but you must take action to exercise its' full value.

Prior to taking possession in your home it is advisable to have the house professionally inspected to have all defects or uncompleted items recorded. All surface defects should be noted. It is often hard to prove they predated possession later on.

It is also becoming a common practice to have the house inspected a few months prior to the expiry of your builder's comprehensive 1 or 2 year warranty. Some deficiencies take time to appear. In many cases it takes one full winter and summer for some structural, mechanical or cosmetic defects to appear.

Whether you have an inspection performed at the pre-delivery stage or prior to warranty expiry, the process provides excellent value and assurance.

Our report to you includes an itemization of construction deficiencies. More common, however, are those items that never get completed.

During an inspection performed by Baker Street, the maintenance requirements of the house are discussed. We also offer home improvement ideas for your future family needs.

It is important to note that all our inspectors have experience in the house building and renovating industry. They have excellent knowledge of all building methods and procedures used to construct your home.
