Serving Homebuyers Creates National Success For Local Firm

Local company building a nation-wide business on respect and trust

Hockey isn't the only Nova Scotian invention to be picked up across the country. One local firm began business here in 1988, and today it provides peace of mind to thousands of homebuyers throughout the country.

Canadian Residential Inspection Services helps consumers determine if the home they're about to purchase represents a solid investment, or if it's fraught with hidden - potentially costly - problems.

When somebody puts in an offer to buy a house, any professional realtor will include a clause in the agreement of purchase and sale that states that it is conditional upon having a professional home inspection performed and finding it satisfactory to the purchase. Canadian Residential provides those pre-purchase home inspections.

Since 1988, the firm has provided objective, professional, pre-purchase home inspections as an unbiased third-party. Because they don't benefit from home sales or repairs or recommend services, consumers receive true, arms-length service.

"Our home base is in Dartmouth and we've trained people out of this office for all over Canada," says a company spokesperson. "A lot of people who deal with us don't realize we're a franchise with a head office based right here in Nova Scotia. We're one of the largest firms in the country with franchises from the Atlantic to Pacific. We have a number of home inspectors in Nova Scotia working from offices in Cape Breton, Truro, Pictou, Annapolis Valley and the greater HRM area. We're there for potential homebuyers, to help them make an informed decision." Part of the firm's success has been in its development of professional standards and rigorous training. Canadian Residential provides its inspectors with exclusive training, making them the top professionals in the field.

"The training focuses on in-depth knowledge of residential construction techniques, defect recognition and report writing," says the company spokesperson. "There's a 250-hour exam they write to qualify, they have to perform a number of inspections with one of our RHI inspectors and then we provide ongoing support and additional training." So what do you receive from a report? It's a visual inspection of the property that includes things like surface grading and drainage, roofing, insulation, ventilation, chimneys, exterior siding, windows and doors, structural integrity, foundation, electrical and plumbing.

Canadian Residential Inspectors look at close to 1,000 things in the average house, and put the information into a nice, easy to use, yet comprehensive format. The purchaser can look at the report and see that the house is in excellent condition, or if there are areas of concern which may require attention.

You won't have to wait for results as Canadian Residential Inspection Services provides a detailed written report on-site as soon as the inspection is complete. The report will also contain helpful maintenance tips. Your inspector will spend time reviewing the report so that you're comfortable with the findings.
