Hiring a Home Inspector
It is often said that one of the most expensive and important purchases you will ever make will be your home. However, unlike the guarantee a buyer receives with most purchases, there’s no money-back guarantee or return policy if you’re not satisfied with your recently purchased home. Once you buy a home, you’re on your own to maintain it, repair it, anticipate problems and pay the bills. This is why it’s best to know as much as you can about potential problems before you buy.
What Home Inspectors Do
One of the best ways to see if a home is in good condition, livable and safe is to hire a professional home inspector. A properly trained home inspector will review your house as a system, looking at how one component of the house might affect how another component works or how long it will last. Home inspectors will go through the house and perform a complete visual inspection to assess its condition and all of its systems. They will determine the components that are not performing properly as well as items that are beyond their useful life or are unsafe. They will also identify areas where repairs may be needed or where there may have been problems in the past. Inspections are intended to help homebuyers better understand the condition of the house, as observed at the time of the inspection.
Scope of the Inspection
A home inspection is intended to provide information about the condition of the home’s systems and components at the time of the inspection. An inspection will help you make an informed purchase decision.
The home inspector will do a visual inspection by looking at the home’s various systems, including interior and exterior components. The inspector will check exterior components including roofing, flashing, chimneys, gutters, downspouts, wall surfaces, windows, doors, the foundation and the grading around it.
Note that, if the inspection takes place in the winter, the roof and the foundation may not be fully visible for inspection if they are covered with snow and ice. For safety and insurance reasons, the home inspector would not typically climb up on a roof covered with snow or ice. However, the home inspector will inspect the roof from the ground or other vantage point. This also applies to the chimney and downspouts.
If problems beyond the scope of the inspection are found, the home inspector may recommend further evaluation.
The interior systems that the home inspector will check include electrical, heating, air conditioning, ventilation, plumbing, insulation, flooring, ceiling and walls, windows and doors.
As with the outside of the home, the inspection of the interior systems is visual, meaning that the inspector will not make openings to inspect behind walls or under the floor. It is not a good idea to conduct an inspection at night, since a number of the very important components of the exterior of the house cannot be seen properly.

Thanks again Skyspect,
We procured Phil's services to inspect the home we were interested in buying. His inspection was thorough and the use of thermal imaging showed us all the minor and major flaws in the house. If it was not for his services, we could have been fooled into buying a home that would have created a lot of headaches and extra costs. We recommend contacting Phil before you buy your home!

Your service went above and beyond my expectations, you helped make the purchase of our first home a pleasant one. I have never experienced such helpful, quality service, I will be recommending you to all of my friends who need to have a home inspection.

Our real estate agent recommended Phil as a home inspector for the home we were interested in. We contacted him and he was very prompt and polite with his services. The inspection was very thorough. As first time home buyers we didn't really know what to ask or what we were getting into, he was very helpful and explained things very well. The thermal imaging included in the inspection was a great bonus and gave us a really good idea of things happening in your house you'd never know of without it. I highly recommend Skyspect for any of your home inspection needs.

Skyspect was able to quickly respond and provide me a report a head of schedule to my deadline. The home inspection report was professional, detailed and self explanatory. The observations and recommendations from the report provided us with a better understanding of items being non compliant to the building code and improvements on energy efficiency. Skyspect makes the home inspection worth every penny!
I found Skyspect Inspection Services using the internet, looking for home inspection people in Timmins and surrounding area. Your website was well organized and easy to navigate and had plenty of information. I was very interested in the thermal imaging services Skyspect provides as I work in the Environmental Protection field. The inspection provided was detailed, professional and economical. Skyspect Inspection offered thermal imaging at no additional cost. I will definitely recommend Skyspect Inspection Services to my friends and family. Thanks Phil!

We called Skyspect Inspection Services to inspect an older home we were interested in purchasing. The report we received was clear, concise and professionally produced. It was a very valuable tool. The report was also done in a very timely manner!
“When Skyspect did an inspection on our home, we were very pleased with the quality of the work. Phil did a very thorough job - he checked all the systems & the structure of our home. His inspection revealed a couple of problems we were not aware of, and we'll be dealing with these issues as we proceed with our home renovation. Phil provided us with a report that was very clear and easy to understand. I would recommend using Skyspect’s services to anyone who is considering buying or renovating a home."
Gabriel & Christine Lambert
Skyspect performed an inspection on our soon to be new home and we are very satisfied. The inspection was thorough and the information collected was excellent in helping us decide if this was in fact the house we wanted. Skyspect was also able to accommodate a short notice appointment and the house inspection report was returned equally fast. The thermal imaging is an added bonus to a standard house inspection. Thanks for all your help. We can’t wait to move into our new home!
