High Rise Condo

Inspections

Just like a house, a condo is an expensive purchase so you should have a professional evaluation of its condition before you buy it. Our condo inspection uses the same inspection processes as a house, but only internal components and conditions of systems are required to identify and evaluate the specific issues that your condo unit may have. Common elements such as roofs, outside components and shared areas such as lobbies, pools, activity rooms, gyms etc are not included in the inspection. Buying a condo is a big investment, so it's good to know exactly what you’re getting yourself into. Our condo inspection provides an assessment of the conditions of the component and systems as well as a detailed report that is executed in accordance with the standards of Association of Home Inspectors.

  • Simple online booking and secure payments with quick personal information intake.

Specialty Inspections

We offer more than just the standard home inspection. Without having to contact another provider, we offer inhouse specialty services at a reduced rate during your inspection. We know that many folks purchasing  a home, want to make sure their investment is covered with a standard inspection to address insulation, moisture and hard to see roof issues. Typically these are older homes or homes where maintenance may have been neglected or damage has occurred. Perhaps you are selling your home and you need more than a pre sale inspection and valuable drone photography and video would be an asset for promotion and marketing efforts. Included below are some descriptions of our specialty services. These are subject to change and with additional services as available.

  • Thermal Imaging and Moisture Detection - infrared imaging the latest in digital testing to test for the presence of excessive moisture and detection of adequate wall and ceiling  insulation. Our digital moisture meters offer non-invasive digital testing throughout the home.

  • Well and Septic Inspections - a visual assessment of the well, septic and related components to verify that they are functioning properly. It includes a certificate of water testing from a municipal laboratory. we provide onsite water testing  for bacteria, hardness, pH, nitrates, nitrites, lead, etc. Many of the components are buried or hidden so further physical testing may be suggested for water recovery and septic flow. 

  • Aerial Drone Inspection – highly detailed roof photography and video for larger home and property inspections.  Get ultra high resolution images and video for hard to see or difficult to access locations. (weather pending)

TESTIMONIALS

What our clients are saying

Ron provided great service starting with online booking, a contract and scheduling. He arrived on time and got to work. His drone photography helped me see areas of the roof that were previously difficult to view. The professional looking report was easy to read with quality photos and illustrations to help show areas of concern and how to correct. I also learned about how a sealed bedroom window could be dangerous should there be a fire. Thanks for a job well done!

Frequently Asked Questions

Que faut-il apporter comme matériel pour les séances?


De quoi changer et nourrir votre bébé si besoin Tenue décontractée conseillée pour vous sentir à l'aise lors des séances pour vous et pour bébé.




Qui masse mon bébé lors des séances?


Uniquement mon (mes) parent(s) ou ma personne référente qui m'emmène au cours. Les mouvements seront montrés sur un poupon de massage. Si les deux parents sont présents lors du cours, je conseille alors qu'une seule et même personne masse par séance pour ne pas trop perturber le bébé et l'autre pourra alors s'entrainer sur un poupon à disposition.




Pourquoi dont-on faire 5 séances?


A chaque séance, différentes parties du corps sont travaillées. Les bébés vont découvrir leurs corps au fur et à mesure des séances. Vous parent(s), allez au fur et à mesure vous sentir de plus en plus à l'aise avec les mouvements et évoluer.




Si mon bébé....pleure? dort?


Mon bébé ne sera pas forcément disponible pour être massé lors d'une séance...ou de plusieurs... Bébé peut pleurer, dormir, vouloir manger...tous les états et tous les besoins de votre bébé sont accueillis lors des séances. Vous pourrez evidemment répondre à tout cela lors des séances. Si besoin et que vos mains sont libres, vous pourrez apprendre les mouvements sur un poupon. Si ce n'est pas possible, les mouvements sont de toute façon répétés plusieurs fois et revus à chaque séance.
