  What is a Home Inspection ?        

At East Kootenay Home Inspections Ltd. ,  our  home

inspections are a non invasive visual examination and professional analysis of the

major systems
of a home.  We will inspect your property or real estate before you build.

We perform our inspections for

-existing homeowners, who want pre listing inspections

-prospective buyers, who want to know more about their major purchase

-third party
agencies, usually lenders or insurance companies 

The major systems we inspect include the


Roofing
, Exterior, Structure,

Electrical,
Heating, Cooling,

Insulation, Plumbing, and the Interior.

Home inspectors must be knowledgeable about all aspects of

residential building systems
and their operation.

They must be able to recognize and report on non-performance and
the

potential for failure.

In April of 2010, I had Eric McKay inspect my home in Marysville, BC.  The house is approximately 75 years old and has more than a few problems.  Eric found some fairly serious electrical problems and a potentially dangerous hole in my chimney, among other things. I found Eric to be professional and courteous, and would not hesitate to hire him in the future.
