Environspec LTD performs comprehensive commercial and residential inspections.
All home inspections are to ASHI ( American Society Of Home Inspectors ) standards, commercial inspections are to ASTM requirements. Your inspection is divided into a number of sections.
They cover the Structure, Roof, Exterior Components, Mechanical Systems, HVAC and Interior condition of the building. We can also include optional modules such as Sewage System Evaluation, Pest, Radon, Mold, Moisture Intrusion, Water Testing as well as various other inspections.
If your home is clad with an EIFS or Stucco exterior covering, you should include a complete stucco evaluation as a part of your inspection. This will require some probing of the system to determine if moisture entry has occurred. Moisture entry can result in damage to the structural components of the home. Please see our EIFS /STUCCO section for more details.

WHY:
With today’s rising costs and interest rates it is even more important to insure that you buy wisely and purchase a home that will give you years of enjoyment. By having the house inspected prior to purchase you will know the condition of the building and consequently be able to make your decision confidently. If you are selling your home, a professional inspection will inform you of the current condition of your home, its systems and the maintenance required to maintain and prepare your home for sale.

WHEN:
The best time to call in the inspection company is after you have made an offer on the home of your choice. Or you can ask your lawyer to include an inspection clause in the contract, making your purchase obligation contingent upon the findings of a professional inspection company.

WHO:
It is not necessary for you to be present at the inspection, but it is an excellent idea. By following the home inspector around the home, by observing and asking questions you will learn about your new home and acquire some tips on general maintenance – information that will be of great help to you after you have moved in.

WHAT IF:
Should the inspector finds fault in a home it does not necessarily mean you shouldn’t buy it, only that you will know in advance what type of repairs to anticipate. You will then be in a position to make an appropriate decision.

WAS IT NEEDED:
