HOME INSPECTION

KNOWLEDGE & EXPERIENCE YOU CAN TRUST

Red Seal Inspection offers comprehensive home inspections in South Central Alberta and Winnipeg. We use the latest technology to exceed industry standards. We are a well-diversified company with 20 years of experience in the construction industry and your inspection will be done by a Red Seal certified tradesman with an extensive background in electrical. With the use of thermal imaging, scope cameras, gas detection equipment, and moisture meters we can insure that we cover every detail. Best of all, our services don’t end with the inspection. We provide information about the life expectancy of all home components, and for as long as you own the home, you can call with any additional questions—at no extra charge!

OUR INSPECTION PROCEDURE

We start at the roof and evaluate not only the roof surface, but also the chimney, ventilation system, electrical service entrance, plumbing stack, and any other systems or components located on the roof.

Our next step is to inspect the exterior of the house. We use a macro and micro approach to look at both the big picture and all the details.

We then move inside the house, and starting on the bottom floor, work our way up through the structure into the attic. While inside, we address such things as the construction, heating and cooling systems, electrical and plumbing systems, interior finishes, insulation and ventilation, and accessories such as fireplaces.

EVERY HOME INSPECTION INCLUDES A DETAILED REPORT

A home inspection is valuable, but unless the experience is well-documented, most people won’t remember all the important details. That’s why we provide a comprehensive written report to serve as your guide for as long as you own the property. It not only describes the house components and their condition, but also provides insight into what improvements will be necessary, and when.

Your property will likely be one of the most significant investments you will make. We can help you develop a home maintenance program that will ensure your investment lasts for years to come. Our goal is to ensure that you can live safely, comfortably, and efficiently in your new home. Once you have settled in your new home, our annual check-up inspection is available to help keep track of the performance of many major systems in your home.
