My Promise To You

Choosing the right home inspector can be difficult. Unlike most professionals, you probably will not get to meet me until after you hire me. Furthermore, different inspectors have varying qualifications, equipment, experience, reporting methods, and, yes, different pricing. One thing for sure is that a home inspection requires work -- a lot of work. Ultimately, a thorough inspection depends heavily on the individual inspector’s own effort. If you honour me by permitting me to inspect your new home, I guarantee that I will give you my very best effort. This I promise you.

When Things Go Wrong

There may be a time that you find something wrong with the house, and you may be upset or disappointed with your home inspection.

 Some problems can only be discovered by living in a house. They cannot be be discovered during the few hours of a home inspection. For example, some shower stalls leak when people are in the shower, but do not leak by simply turning on the tap. Some roofs and basements only leak when certain conditions exist. Some problems will only be discovered when carpets are lifted, furniture is moved or finishes are removed.

These problems may have existed at the time of the inspection but there were no clues to their existence. Our inspections are based on the past performance of the house. If there are no clues to a problem, a home inspector won't find it.

Some say we are inconsistent because our reports identify some minor problems but not others. The minor problems that are identified were discovered while looking for more significant problems. We note them simply as a courtesy. The intent of the inspection is not to find the $200 problems; it is to find the $2000 problems. These are the things that affect people's decisions to purchase.

The main source of dissatisfaction with home inspectors comes from comments made by contractors. Contractors' opinions often differ from ours. Don't be suprised when three different roofers all say the roof needs replacement when we said that, with minor repairs, the roof will last a few more years.

While our advice represents the most prudent thing to do, many contractors are reluctant to undertake these repairs. This is because of the  "Last One In Syndrome". The contractor fears that the last person to work on the roof will get blamed if the roof leaks, regardless of whose fault it is. Consequently, there is an understandable reluctance to do a minor repair with high liabiliy when the entire house could be reroofed for more money and reduce the likelihood of a call back.

There is more to the "Last One In Syndrome". It suggests that it is human nature for homeowners to believe the last bit of  "expert" advice they receive, even if it is contrary to previous advice.  As home inspectors, we unfortunately find ourselves in the position of  "first one in"  and consequently it is our advice that is often misbelieved.

Contactors say,  "I can't believe you had this house inspected, and they didn't find this problem." There are several reasons for these apparent oversights:

1.   It's impossible for contractors to know what the circumstances were when the inspection was performed. 

2.   When the problem manifests itself, it is very easy to have 20/20 hindsight. Anybody can say that the basement is wet when there is two inches of water on the floor. Predicting the problem is a different story.

3.   If we spent a half hour under a kitchen sink or 45 minutes disassembling the furnace, we'd find more problems too. Unfortunately, the inspection would take several days and would cost considerably more.

4.   It is difficult for homeowners to remember the circumstances in the house at the time of the inspection. Homeowners seldom remember that it was snowing, there was storage everywhere in the basement or that the furnace could not be turned on because the air conditioning was operating, etc.

5.   We are generalists. The heating contractor may indeed have more heating expertise than we do. This is because we are expected to have heating expertise, plumbing expertise, electrical expertise, etc.

6.   Problems often become apparent when carpets or plaster are removed, when fixtures or cabinets are pulled out, and so on. A home inspection is a visual examination. We don't perform any invasive or destructive tests.

In conclusion, a home inspection is designed to better your odds. It is not designed to eliminate all risk. For that reason, a home inspection should not be considered an insurance policy. The premium that an insurance company would have to charge for a policy with no deductible, no limit and an indefinite policy period would be considerably more than the fee we charge. It would also not include the value added by the inspection.

We hope this is food for thought.
