Jay McArthur is no stranger to hard work, after 14 years of serving in the Canadian Armed Forces, multiple deployments, both foreign and domestic, meeting and working with various VIP’s including Her Majesty The Queen, The Honorable Governor General Of Canada, The Prime Minister and many other’s. Jay was also working for himself in the renovation and construction business, from new construction to full home renovations. After retiring, Jay pursued his goal of becoming a Home Inspector, Certified by North America’s #1 Home Inspector Training Association InterNACHI. After completing all education training, and completing 25 mentored inspections, Jay is continuously looking for ways to expand his business opportunities.
Our goal is to help educate our customers and give them the knowledge they need to not only buy or sell their homes. Then when the time comes, also maintain, improve and repair as needed. Well educated clients make better decisions when hiring home inspectors, contractors, repair people, planning for home improvements and maintaining their homes, all in the most cost effective manner.
Buying a home? It’s probably the most expensive purchase you’ll ever make. This is no time to shop for a cheap inspection. The cost of a home inspection is very small relative to the value of the home being inspected. The additional cost of hiring an InterNACHI-Certified Professional Inspector® is almost insignificant.
You have recently been crunching the numbers, negotiating offers, adding up closing costs, shopping for mortgages, and trying to get the best deals. Don’t stop now. Don’t let your real estate agent, a “patty-cake” inspector, or anyone else talk you into skimping here. InterNACHI-certified inspectors perform the best inspections by far.
The above holds true for all other people you might need to hire to do work around your home, with the added advice of always get 3 or 4 estimates and compare them closley to make sure they are all doing the same job. Try not to be a “test dummy” for someone offering the latest, greatest product that has no real facts to back up claims.
The time taken to inspect a house or apartment for sale is usually enough to assess the structural performance or costly maintenance requirements.
