What is a NorthStar Inspection?
Home Inspection Services in Winnipeg
Trust Dave Sarlo at NorthStar Inspections to provide a comprehensive home inspection. We are based in Winnipeg, Manitoba.
The inspection is a visual, performance based inspection. We inspect what we can see and we do not open up walls or make any modifications to the house.
We start at the roof and evaluate not only the roof surface, but also the chimney, the ventilation system, the electrical service entrance and the plumbing stack.
Our next step is to inspect the exterior of the home. We use a macro and micro approach to look at both the big picture and all the details and include grading and drainage.
We then move inside the house, and starting at the bottom, work our way up through the home into the attic. While inside, we address such things as the structure, the heating and cooling systems, the electrical and plumbing systems, the interior finishes, the insulation and ventilation, and accessories such as fireplaces. We operate the appliances as well, to confirm that they work.
Our evaluation is then communicated through a detailed inspection report, which includes descriptions of all the systems in the home, as well as any recommended improvements along with colour pictures to illustrate the area in question. The report is delivered to you electronically by the end of the same day. It is also retained on the system for future reference.
Our home inspections adhere to the ethics and Standards of Practice of the Canadian Association of Home and Property Inspectors (CAHPI), the most widely accepted standards for home inspections in North America. These standards and CAHPI’s code of ethics can be found here.
We encourage you to accompany the certified inspector throughout the inspection, to better understand the report that you will receive and to learn about your new house.
