CFB Trenton Residence Building - Foundation Waterproofing & Geocomposite Drainage 

Residential Home Inspection Services

DEW Technology Centre® Home Inspection Services are thorough, professional, detailed, and the reports reflect the condition of the home in a practicle and easy to understand format for all levels of interest within the construction and consumer industry.  The inspections are conducted in accordance with the InterNACHI Standards of Practice and all work is done in a professional manner as outlined in the InterNACHI Code of Conduct.

Our inspection of a home includes a complete visual review of the home which includes (but is not limited to);  the Foundation, Main Structure, Cladding, Roofing (including structural components), HVAC, Plumbing, Electrical, Exterior Finishes, Caulking, Interior Finishes, Flooring, Appliances (built in) for general operation, Smoke Detectors, CO2 Devices, Hot Water Tanks (and ancillary components), Attics, Insulation (Exposed), Garage, Ancillary Buildings and we can provide leak detection for water penetration, and some hazardous materials.  Where necessary we can provide a customized home inspection which can be beneficial for homes under construction, bank requirements for mortgage advances, quality control and progress payment scheduling.

Our Home Inspections are non-intrusive and do not include any destructive (exploratory) investigations, however we may make suggestions of any issues we notice during the inspection that should be investigated further to determine the cause of the problem.  We may bring in a specialist where required (i.e.  Septic Systems) for testing purposes, and the client will be made aware of this and any associated costs at the time of the inspection.  We will provide a complete report in either electronic or written format for those wishing to have a hard copy, and can provide a "quick" on site report for customers needing such for purchase closures, with a full follow up report as is customary.  The full report will include colour pictures of any issues we make note of for clarity of the situation to the customer, or further explanation to third parties such as builders.  A typical Home Inspection can take from between 2 to 4 hours to complete.

We have direct experience with performing warranty inspections for home buyers, real estate agents or builders when dealing
with the Tarion Warranty Corporation (formerly known as The Ontario New Home Warranty Program).  Having worked directly with the ONHWP as a Technical Representative and Conciliator for several years. we can offer expert support when faced with making your case for any issue related to a warranty claims toward workmanship, Building Code infractions, safety issue, or a major structural defect.  We can also attend (at the request of the client) a conciliation meeting where the client feels they require technical support during this process.  Attending a conciliation meeting and any follow up is considered outside the scope of a home inspection and would be addressed as a separate contract between DEW Technology Centre® and the client.

We also have extensive experience in the construction inspection field in relation to new, retro-fit (modifications), and compliance construction where a client needs assistance with understanding what is required to meet the intent of the local Building Codes (All Building Codes across Canada).  We can help you to deal directly or indirectly with your contractor, building inspector, or architect/engineer when faced with understanding what is required to meet the design specifications, practicle solutions and insight on "how to" construct a specific detail or project to the satisfaction of the designer.  This can be particularly helpful for the "do it yourself" type of client who wants to directly experience construction for themselves, right up to the builder who needs to understand how to satisfy the local Building Code requirements.

DEW Technology Centre® has tailored our Home Inspection Services to be flexible, affordable, and most of all useful to our clients.  Our customary fees for direct Home Inspections is based on a square footage price, and the following represents sample fees for such services;

a)  0 - 2,500 sq.ft. = $350.00 + taxes

b)  2,501 - 3,500 sq.ft. = $475.00 + taxes

c)  3,501 - 4,000 sq.ft. = $600.00 + taxes

The above prices are representative of a typical Home Inspection service performed in the GTA and Golden Horseshoe, as compared to industry pricing.  For a Home Inspection of a home greater in size than shown above, or located outside these areas a small adjustment fee may be added to account for distance outside of our normal service area.  An estimate in these cases will be required which can be arranged by contacting us by phone or e-mail.
