Additional Home and Condo Inspection Services
Pre-Purchase Home Inspection
A home inspection prior to purchasing gives you some of the most important information needed to protect you and your family. Not understanding the true condition of your potential purchase can cost you thousands of dollars, not to mention countless hours of your time. Regardless of weather an inspection can uncover a major defect or regular needed repairs or maintenance. It makes sense to have an independent review done on your behalf so you have a clear picture.
Pre-Purchase Condo Inspections
Expensive repairs to a building envelope and mechanical systems are the most significant and common costs you are likely to run in a condominium purchase. A Pre – Purchase Condo Inspection involves a detailed inspection of the Suite you are purchasing as well as a visual inspection of the building’s common areas, specially: exterior walls, roof , mechanical rooms and underground parking area. We strongly recommend that all available information about the building in question regarding past or present problems and planned major expenditures be obtained. Learn more about Condo Inspections
Pre-Purchase Listing Inspection
Pre-Listing inspections make your home or condo easier and faster to sell.

By knowing about problems in advance, you can then decide if you wish to fix the problem or disclose it to the buyer.
Open House Inspection
With today’s competitive market, we realize your need to make immediate buying decisions. To accommodate this, we will accompany you through an open house showing.
During and after the “Open House” Inspection, Mainland Home Inspections will discuss the findings, and advise on the quality of the home.
Note: the “Open House” Inspection is not as thorough as a regular inspection, but does focus on critical components which may affect your purchase decision.
New Home Inspection
Most homeowners can easily identify the cosmetic deficiencies. It takes a professional who is familiar with all codes to find the rest. By having a new home inspected the opportunity exists to learn as much as you can about the house and how to look after it, before you buy it. The inspector can point out known problem areas and suggest maintenance practices which will reduce or eliminate most problems before they can start.

Warranties and Infrared Analysis
Having a warranty to a new house is fantastic, but you need to know what to look out for if you’d like to make a claim on a repair during your warranty. Most house owners do not know what to look out for but our home inspections do.
Infrared Thermal Imaging Analysis
We use Infrared Thermal Imaging Technology to verify our findings. We use this technology on heating boards, heated tiles and known cold spots around your house.
